Our very own style icon

April 30, 2009

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.

Object of Desire

April 29, 2009

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 :)

+46 goes Bob the Builder

February 17, 2009

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.

Camilla Norrback A/W-09 show at PUB

February 12, 2009

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.

January 14, 2009

…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.
