As you know by now, I love a good bargain as long as it’s ticks my style and sustainable boxes. But on the other side of the spectrum you have the investment pieces that comes with a sometimes sky high pricetag, but has all the specs of a long-term key investment.
So now I’m introducing a new weekly category. Got to have something to dream about and get inspired by, right?
The off-white trenchcoat from Acne Studios are just the kind of garment that my coat dreams are made of.
It has a wonderful town scene print. It’s made from a sumptuous silk blend. It’s oversized. And the colour combo with off-white and the brown pattern fits my palette just perfect.
I would wear it just like in the pics, accompanied by an all low-key white assembly to let the coat be the cover star.
Whatever the mood. Whatever the day. This has you covered.
For this week’s Monday Motivation when the Mercury is hitting +30C on a regular bases mint feels like the perfect cooling colour. Like the swimsuit Attila from Three Graces. Just add a pool and a glass full of clinking ice cubes and liquid of choice.
The old renovated shoe box factory in Shoreditch, London follows today’s theme. It has been transformed into a modern home with some fresh looking features like the mint coloured walls that works surprisingly well with the concrete grey.The built-in bench under the windows is the perfect way to add both siting and shelf Just space. And take a closer look at the details, like the big ceramic urn and the lighting.
The colour reminds me of Prada stores back in the late 90s. At that time they always had a pale mint green as a major interior feature.Holding on to that shoe thing with mules from Swedish Acne. They will spice up almost any outfit.
And then it’s that little detail. The pink tip of the heel.
Mint with a hint of pink. My kind of Monday candy.
P.s. Just discovered long-time favourite designer Carin Rodebjer’s first drop for AW18. She apparently has mint on her mind as well. The versatile tunic dress will work with or without pants. D.s.
