A Love Story

What I witnessed today during my breakfast.

A scene from my kitchen window. Lyon, 16th of January 2011.

Betty And The Shoes

I love this picture of Betty the dog. I also love Coralie's shoes!

French Preppiness

I walked past this couple and stopped them immediately on my way to the metro. I really like how they look together, both in shirts, wearing grey jackets and she in pearls. They look preppy in a nice low key kind of way. Can you say low key bourgeois in French?

Black Swan

Yesterday I saw the movie Black Swan at a pre-premiere at a film festival here in Lyon. The film was absolutely fantastic - thrilling, esthetic and abstract. Here are the sketches of the costumes to Odette (The White Swan) and Odile (Black Swan) made by the sisters and designer duo Rodarte.

He's Got The Look?

Yesterday evening I went for an Isabel Marant or perhaps even Emmanuelle Alt inspired look. A unison of what's tailored and casual, rocked and refined, the list goes on ...
Jacket from Balenciaga, sweater from American Apparel, jeans from Dior Homme, shoes by Marc Jacobs, bracelet by Parisian designer Helene Zubeldia and necklace from Miu Miu.

There is something that triggers me when it comes to pretty boxes with even prettier things in them.
Les bijouteri is such a lovely word, and Bijou is also the name of a song by Queen. Now you know.

Flying A Magic Carpet

I love my little "fireplace" in my studio in Lyon. It is not usable for anything but special edition Diptyque scented candles.
Here I'm wearing my Middle Eastern aviator-look. Probably what you wear when flying a magic carpet? Hat by Monki, grey sweater from Weekday and vest and pants by Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche.

17° Celsius

Yesterday was such a lovely day here in Lyon. It was so warm that people actually walked around in t-shirts. I love this girl's hair and matching dog. I really got into a spring time feeling when I saw her. Nothing like seeing femmes walking around in peep toe platform stilettoes in the beginning of January!

Post Celebration

On my way down from the little mountian called Håland and the new years celebration, I had such a lovely scenery around me. The Max Richter soundtrack Henry May Long was playing on repeat on my iPod, making the walk and the atmosphere even more magical - quiet and sad almost.
Hestene Står i Regnet
Når mitt sinn er fylt av drømmer,
mere dunkle, mere fjerne
mere ville, mere hete
enn mitt hjerte kan forstå,
vil jeg bare stå i regnet
slik som hester står i regnet
på en bred og saftig slettemellom tunge fjell, som her.
Stå og kjenne kroppen suge
dette svale, sterke, våte,
som i strie strømmer siler
over ansikt, hår og hender.
Likne skogen der den suger,
som et barn, av himlens bryster.
Likne sletten, full av sødme,
sitrende av fromt begjær.
Slik som hester står i regnet,
lutende, med våte flanker,
og lar duft av muld og væte
drive sterkt og søtt i sinnet,
vil jeg stå og bare være
og la himmel-yret falle,
inntil tanken fri for feber
følger drømmene til klarhet
i en steil og stille ro.
(Astrid Hj. Andersen)

The First Minutes Of 2011

In my favourite ensemble of Batlak og Selvig jewellery, tee and the amazing high waist smoking trousers from Acne together with ski outerwear I celebrated the entrance of 2011 on a teeny, tiny mountain. Bad weather will never make me not celebrate in style.
