 You can always trust Balmain to deliver an amazing collection! And this time is no different! Glam, rock, pinstripes, 80’s and sporty chic all in one! I love it! A bit surprised that this collection didn’t follow as much in the steps of their autumn/winter 2013-14 collection (you can see the collection HERE!where the massive shoulder pads were dominating the catwalk and the 80’s look was clearly reborn with as much glitter as one could possibly fit on a clothing item.

That was such a gorgeous collection too, but I’m glad they took that 80’s look and remade it a bit for their spring/summer collection! My absolutely favorite outfit is definitely the one in the top middle, that bomber jacket combined with that pinstriped/baseball top, baggy leather trousers and lot’s of gold statement pieces! WOW factor that is! Balmain, you killed it as always!

See the whole collection HERE!

Wang Wang Wang, do I have to say more? As soon as you hear Wang’s name you know you’re expecting a hell of a collection! I’ve always been a killer for his minimalistic rock chic dressed models, no one can pull that off better then Wang himself!

This time we see a much more summery collection, with pastels combined with grey or leather, sharp cuts, let’s just say it’s minimalism at it’s best! A collection much more different then their autumn/winter 2013-14 collection (you can see it HERE!Which was very dark! Wang usually does dark collection’s but that one was even darker, almost a bit too dark. So I like this summer/spring Wang girl, with her pastels tops and cool edgy bottoms! Definitely one of my favorite spring/summer 2014 collections!

During fashion week, the great thing is, that not only do you see all the fashion on the runway, you also get to see all the amazing fashion on the streets! Thank god for street style photographers ey! Tommy Ton is one of those brilliant streetstyle photographers, he captures fashion so very well!

 Already seen Tiffany Hsu wearing two of those amazing Givenchy sweatshirts, she’s wearing one of them on the top right, oh LOVE em! Jealous, yes! Also how cool isn’t the lady in the grey coat with those wicked black heels, wow!, statement shoes for real!

Wowzza check out this Autumn/Winter ready to wear 2013-14 DKNY collection! Good stuff this is! This collection feels like a great mixture of the best of Celine, Calvin Klein with a bit of that Dsquared2 edge to it! Nice one! I’m impressed!

Loving these three jumpers from the Weekday store, especially the one in the middle, need to get my hands on that one!

So last night I started watching a show called Girls, a “comedy” show that came out last year, it’s about 4 girls in their twenties that live in New York. I started watching it cause on imdb.com it had quite a high rating (and I usually always think what imdb thinks, I’m a big imdb believer!) But this time not so sure, don’t know what I think about the series, it’s a bit of an odd show.

All the four girls are quite strange, the lead character is a bit annoying, a part of me think it’s alright, and another part of me think it’s too much of a “try hard” kinda show, like they want this show to stick out and be a bit indie therefore they chosen these people and characters, which is not my cup of tea. Oh well.. watched all the other shows, so might watch a few more episodes and see what I think.

 Have any of you seen it? Do you like it? xx

LONDON

LONDON

So I got a request earlier today if I could write a bit of my life in London, so here it goes!

Me and my friend Julia, (top right) We were 19 and had finished school, and were quite fed up with the small town we were from in Sweden, our first plan was to move to Stockholm, but then after some thinking we decided to go for London. So London it was, I had never been there before so I was well excited! The idea was to be there and work for a bit, and just enjoy life, so work was no problem to find, we both found jobs working in retail, but a place to stay was a bit harder, wow how we have struggled, fighting with agencies, landlords, well you name it! And keep in mind this was our first time moving from home, from mum and dad, so we didn’t know much about getting a flat and such, but we managed, we lived in some cool places, first in Angel, then Shoredith (in a warehouse, it was such a wicked flat, with brick walls), then in Camden, my fave place in London.

Then I met my boyfriend, and about that time my friend Julia moved back to Sweden, but I stayed and moved in with the man in Dalston, wicked place, and nightlife, (if you wanna party till very late, this is the place to go to). I always wanted to work in fashion, so while in London it was ideal to meet one of my boyfriend’s friends Angharad Merry, she is a fashion stylist, and heard that styling was what I wanted to do, so she brought me along, and we worked at London fashion week, commercials, shoots, and such, It was so fun, and I was real lucky!

Then me and my friend Rebecca aka Rewshkk started doing some dj:ing, which was wicked! Me and my boyfriend moved into a flat were some of my best friend lived in, in Camden! And now I’m back in Sweden for a bit, but will go back to London as soon as I can!

And if you wanna work in fashion, photography or art I would really recommend to move somewhere like London, Milano, Paris or New York, cause it really makes it much easier to success, Cause were I’m from in Sweden, it’s called Lund and it’s a small town, you never heard anyone go “Oh I’m the creative director for this fashion magazine” or “oh Yes my friend is Rihanna’s stylist” No, fashion and that whole world felt miles away! But as soon as I came to London and started to settled down, all of a sudden you meet the right people and that world is not miles away anymore, it’s pretty much next doors!

And hey, thought I might do a post about some cool places to visit if you go to London, would you guys be interested in that?
