Stories of last night

… And this morning.

Right now I’m looking through photos from this weekend, and thought I would share some with you all.

Last night we went to a small festival called The Campus festival. We started off with a small pre-party while listening to the headliners of the night to get in the right mood.

I went with these fine people.

Lint, Sun Age and LoveLoveLove played, and I loved them all (no pun intended).

My GURLS.

There was even a bar with a slightly trashy disco floor.

After a long night, I made it to lunch at Bastant,

And met up with Sigrun (which I havn’t seen in almost a year – reunion!) and Ragnhild.

I had the most delicious lunch of 2014 (so far) – so tasty! #NotAVegeterian. In my opinion the best way to spend a Sunday.

Paris: Coats, coats, coats, it’s all about the COAT. I especially love the beautiful light colors of beige and grey, but when that is said, I hate the stupid glasses.

 

Frankie Morello

Milan: Frankie Morello presented a playful, youthful fall/winter collection inspired by a hypothetical “space odyssey”. Great details, great patterns, great style for both casual everyday-wear and special occasions.

 

Valentino

Paris: Again, it’s all about the perfect winter coat, and I will never get tired no matter how many big ass winter coats I see down the runway. Valentino showed a simple and classic menswear show for FW13, well, except for the smashing navy suit of course.

People are talking about: Music Edition

It’s getting closer and closer to Christmas, and as always I need some great music to get through these hectic weeks. This week I am listening to (among others) these great artists:

 

Say Lou Lou

These Swedish girls are the ones to look out for in 2014. You might have heard the Good Night Keaton remix of Maybe You? This week they released an EP for the track Better In The Dark, featuring one of my favorite tracks of the year, Beloved. Besides GREAT music, they also take the best promo pictures of all time, these might as well be from the pages of Vogue.

Aiden

British Aiden Grimshaw, now just Aiden released his first lp last year, and the track Curtain Call soon became one of my favorite songs ever. This month he released a four track EP that you can download for free by joining his mailing list. The track Better Man is already highly praised by Popjustice.
