Looking forward to shopping for christmas? I’m not! I’m always looking for alternatives for crowded malls and stores, there’s nothing I hate more than thousands and thousands of people killing each other for the same piece of clothing.

I’ve found the best possible alternative for my norwegian and danish friends, it’s called miinto. The store has made it possible to shop directly from physical stores, online, whether you’re at home, at the cabin enjoying a holiday with family, or working at the office. They have 2000 products, 200 brands and 35 of the most prominent fashion stores in Norway.

Some Loake Chelsea boots for those cold days. I have a pair myself, and I love them! (Click image)

Cable knit polo from Lacrosse. I love cable, and I see it everywhere this season. (Click image)

And of course my pick of the year, a cashmere crew neck cashmere cable. I live my life in these! (Click image)

I’ll do a blog for the women in a few days as well, they are after all the big spenders! Until next time, xoxo

So, a few days ago, Hermès showed their S/S 2011 menswear collection by designer Véronique Nichanian. I got really exited when I first saw the collection, the whiteness really worked for me. It screams “I’m a summer outfit, WEAR ME NOW!”

The incredible whiteness of the outfits that opened and closed the show to the incredible lightness of a coat, a jacket, and windbreaker cut from a material called “technical madras”—so fine it was almost sheer. Then there were the shorts, the sandals, the summer skins, and the requisite accent of intense color (here a green that Nichanian called mint, but was more emerald).

“Lightweight” pants, white of course, with a Hermèsque cardigan and scarf. There’s a brown belt hiding under there, but I can’t make a statement on something I can’t see clearly.

Again, white subpart topped off with a cardigan and a sweater, both in earth tones. I really dig this look! <3

I’m gonna need to get me a pair of these pants. Personally, I wouldn’t wear white pants, but that’s simply because I would spill something on them. These brown toned pants are perfect for me. I also love this sports coat. The tie screams Burberry to me, not Hermès.

And of course the designer, Véronique Nichanian!

This really is an honor. SVA Magazine asked me to be the first to ever show case their newest addition, the fourth magazine, and a cover with Josephine De La Baume. De La Baume is an IT girl with Tess Management London, and girlfriend of Mark Ronson. And for those of you that doesn’t know SVA Magazine, here’s a wee bit of information: SVA is a pure high fashion magazine. SVA keeps a close eye on Scandinavian fashion, photography, fashion in motion and design. It’s distributed internationally, and it’s a window from the north.

“Hailed as an it girl with a distinct sense of style, Josephine de La Baume divides her time between New York and Paris and leaves her mark wherever she goes. Good friends with Harley Viera-Newton, de La Baume stands on her own as both an actress and style icon. Josephine fill us in on her love of Rick Owens, Diane Lane, and a good pair of colored socks.”

The cover of this edition of the magazine. Beautiful, no? Beautiful dress, and great effects! I love how she looks at the camera, she’s kind of giving us a “dark” look? Perfect for the cover anyway. (Click image to enlarge)

Photo of De La Baume. Q: Would you be able to stand still on these stilettos at a shoot? She’s goooooood. I really love that they use these kinds of effects, it really makes the pictures more alive in a sense. I really LVoe this one! (Click image to enlarge)

I think this is my favorite picture. I can’t always tell why I like something, but there’s a great connection between it and the headline. I don’t know, it’s dark, but at the same time very loving. I love the angle. To me, this is a very strong picture. (Click image to enlarge)

I can’t express my gratitude towards SVA for giving me the pictures, and for having me show them for the first time to the public. The shots are amazing, and I’d say they go with the headline, no? They are having their release party for this edition on friday, and I’m invited. Will I be there? Yes, and I’ll try to snap some shots, maybe even do a blog about it.

Naomi Campbell, supermodel, or better yet, superbitch, has pleaded guilty to assault charges twice in the last three years, has been accused of letting her temper get the best of her… ONCE AGAIN!

Haha, no one believes in your fake crying. You’re a fake, Naomi!

Ms. Campbell hit her driver as he drove through Midtown about 3 p.m. Tuesday and then ran away after the driver pulled over, according to the account the police gave shortly afterward. The driver had a small bruise under his eye from hitting the steering wheel after she struck him, the police said.“- NY Times

No charges were filed, and I’m sure she had a new driver the next day. Life must be tough as a supermodel. Life must be even harder for the biggest schmuck in the business!

It’s no secret that I’ve loved Vassilios Kostetsos ever since I saw his show during fashion week this february. As a person, he seems very outgoing, down to earth, and as a designer, he knows what he wants, and he doesn’t stop before he’s there. Well, that shows. He takes his greek heritage very serious, and it shows in his collections. Godlike, superhero-like, or just plain awesomeness? I’ll let you decide. Anyway, here’s the show I’ve been talking about.

ENJOY!

It’s been the subject of any fashion related conversation the last few days, and with reason! First of all, the show was amazing, and for those of you that watched it online, it was gobsmacking. The show was original. Not only did we get to see the show, but we got a glimpse of Anna, as well as behind the scenes, and information straight from Christopher himself.

The aviator jacket we already know and love, topped off with thigh-high boots and a dress. Could have gone so wrong, but hell, look at it! They know how to play a darn good game of chess.

Yet another exiting look! Uniform inspired jacket in an earthly color, with a dress and the thigh-high boots. I think Burberry must have had record sells after this show, because this is freaking hot!

Oversized aviator inspired coat… It would look so darn ugly anywhere else, designed by anyone else, but my god, I love Burberry for the moment! And those snake boots. If Anna dared walk these, I would die… And Anna, top it off with some fur, and you’re there!

An oversized uniform inspired coat in a calm, earthly color. At first, I wasn’t sure, it took some time getting used to it, but now that I’m looking at it, and now that I’ve seen the show a few times, I’m really falling for this one. Even I would wear it! I think they did a mens coat exactly the same… And those snake boots, they keep coming back, and I love it!

Christopher, Burberry, everyone that worked on making this possible, thank you for the eye candy! In the words of André Leon: “It’s a famine of beauty, my eyes are starving for beauty!” Well, maybe it’s not, but we need more of this kind of beauty.
