Today I’m kick starting fashion month with Copenhagen Fashion Week, and I cannot wait to see the new collections from some of my favorite Scandinavians. It is worth mentioning that my dear friend and jewelry designer, Orit Elhanati has teamed up with Mark Tan with a jewelry collection that will be awakened during his fashion show tomorrow. The collection is called Stranger and is a series of jewelries with a dramatic, mysterious and textural shape. Orit is known for her playful decadent jewelries with inspiration from nature’s underground treasures.
I’ve been obsessing about this piece of art from the talented Phoebe Philo – the shape of these sleeves are so beautiful and the perfect contrast to the simple navy blue turtleneck. It’s one of those pieces you will keep in your wardrobe for ever!
The three new jumbo multi sticks from Tromborg is my new favorite to add a bit of color, whether you need a touch of highlight, peach or a rose look. The stick is perfect to give your cheeks, lips or eyes a sheer blush of color. Even for me who are not using make up on a daily base they are super easy to apply and bring with me if I need a little extra, on the run.
I just returned from Berlin, which was such a wonderful few days – this city is really growing on me! We stayed at my favourite spots there, which is Soho House in the Mitte district.
I spend my day hanging out in the ground floor, called The Store, in between shows. I’ve mentioned this place before, but this is really the perfect combination of a cafe, gallery and retail in one. I wouldn’t mind moving in and pretend that all the clothes was my own private wardrobe. There is everything from The Row, Balenciaga, Loewe to Vetements and Proenza Schouler. The founder and creative director, Alex Eagle, nailed it by creating a place where you want spend all day, working, eating, shopping or just hang out.. She quotes” It’s like a shop- able private home for everyone to spend time and where everything is for sale from the sofa you are sitting on to the record that is playing.”
I really like the industrial look with the mix of danish furniture, art installations, books, magazines, music and beauty products. Also a great way to welcoming everyone, who aren’t a part of the Soho House membership to get a place to hang out and have great healthy food and green juices. For sure a place to visit next time you are in Berlin.
