Sorry, I should have posted this ages ago, the days just went by but now I feel like I gotta tell the world about my colleague Kristian’s creative kinship with Hedi Slimane. Around New Year’s Kristian got a new haircut, the similarity between him and Hedi’s models were striking…
Right pic: Kristian by me, left pic: anonymous model by Hedi or no… wait… erm.
These two guys also wanted to look like K;
Mr Matthew Stone (je t’aime!) and mr Martin Gore.
Anyways, today I saw a new post on Nicola Formichetti’s blog, displaying he’s latest collab with Hedi, and apparently those two gents have been around the world to search for someone who looks just like Kristian:
Well, he looks just like Kristian in need of a full english breakfast.
Will be posting pics shortly from wonderful Hyères, for now just a quick note about the perfume “Wode” from Boudicca, it came out late last summer but I didn’t hear about it until now when I saw it as part of the A Shaded View on Film programme.
This is my new craving for sure, 65 quid from Browns Fashion, a bargain :)
Finally we were ready for the opening of our 350sqm store with shop-in-shops with Nakkna, Back, Our Legacy, Carin Wester, Julian Red, Wood Wood, Gram, The Local Firm, Stylein, 2707, Camilla Norrback, Uniforms and Whyszeck! First we had some champagne-and-piano-mingle in the store. After that we where on a more bumpy ride at the 2:35.1 night club..! Thanks to all of you!
Friday night and what do you do? Re-sizing, cropping and making the beautiful pictures to the online store EVEN more beautiful! Soon my friends. Soon, they are all online and for your pleasure. Since where almost done with the new (psysical) +46 Store all out eyes are now on the digital creating: +46 Online Store! Within next week, we put up loads of nice stuff from Back, Our Legacy, Nakkna, Carin Wester, Common Projects, Stine Goya, Opening Ceremony so on, so on… We strongly recommend being on the +46-newsletter for being first on the cake! Below is pics from one of the hectic shooting days.
Have a lovely evening! Now you know what I´m up to… :-)
Found Some pics in the camera from our last night in Copenhagen. A table tennins tournament in the showroom of the sales agency California Sports. Jacob (Soulland) made it to the final with his (semi-pro) accountant..! Yours truly didn’t participate through late arrival… But next year, oh yes! We also met the guys from Norse Projects whom showed us their new collection. Very clean cuts and with nice knits! In store A/W-09.
The whole crew is hard at work and the new space at PUB is looking promising! The interior design was made in collaboration with Bau architects who created a light and beautiful space with pastels and raw MDF. Our inspiration came from iconic stores Colette, Maison Martin Margiela and Dover Street Market and Bau has helped us try and find a similar feel using postmodernistic/deconstructivistic references.
We also had a day #2 of designer presentations with Back, Uniforms for the Dedicated, Carin Wester and Nakkna.
Day 1 of collection presentation by the brands for the PUB and +46 staff. Early morning, nice coffee and interesting talks by Axel and Richard (The Local Firm), Piotr (Julian Red), Jockum (Our Legacy), Anna (Gram), Ulrika (Stylein) .
Today Camilla Norrback had a show at PUB. Aw09 collection was inspired by the nordic herritage and the Nordic climate. Another inspiration have been the iconic twin peaks something that was shown in the dark,dull expression in the collection. But the collection also had a soft feminine side to it. We are happy that Norrback will be sold at our webshop and at our +46 store at pub.
Stine used girls on swings (no pics unfortunately) to present a really strong and sexy (as always) collection. Meeting with her within the hour, stay tuned for previews of our selection!
Yesterday we bought diesel black gold. The collection was influenced by marchin band and very Yamamoto like.
It’s time for Departure to Copenhagen fashion week! Four days with trade fairs, shows, meetings, parties and, of coarse loads of Carlsberg..! Stay tuned for daily updates.
And everything starts with a 45min delay… Snow shuffle, anyone?
Yesterday we went to a few exhibition that was a part of Stockholm design week. We went to an exhibition by 10 swedish young designers at Hotel Birger Jarl. The artist that made the strongest impression on us was Hanna Frostell and her exhibition Curtains and Dresses.
It has been a lot of work today with preparing for our four shows tomorrow. That is why I post the pictures from yesterdays excellent acne show now. / kristian

…There; Dutch museum MU is presenting an Henrik Vibskov retrospective called “The Visit”. How ever lovely the emerging spring in Stockholm might be, I’d still love to go and immerse myself in boobies and jumping jacks.
