Feel like celebrating a little on this grey, Monday afternoon! Instead I´m finishing our SS15 collection and I look so much forward to add some dusty pastels and bright contrasting colors to the next collection.

Spring cleaning!

They are finally here; the cute and cool wax print canvas shoes that is made in Spain from the original wax print fabric my father gave me this Christmas, brought from his homeland, The Ivory Coast.

This has been such a fun and refreshing project to me, especially since the shoes were received so well by you -almost sold out before they landed in our stock yesterday!

My father is in Africa at the moment so I´m arranging that he and his friend will buy a little more fabric before he returns to Europe. I thought it was a shame that so many of you did not get the chance to get your size. More details will follow…

PUMPS!

I´m back after a short, but fantastic trip to Italy. Unfortunately Line could not come this time, but she will go with me later this spring to document the production process and much more. Anyway it was great to feel the sun and warmth from the people I work with, but it is also great to be back in Copenhagen -especially since I was welcomed by our pump production that arrived from Italy in the meantime.

This season our pump is only produced in the brushed buffalo quality, not in the traditional smooth buffalo leather. It is made in my absolutely favorite tannery in the middle of the Toscan countryside. The reason for using only this quality for the pump is that I find the brushed buffalo much more special. I also love the mix of something feminine with something more rough. Some people confuse our brushed buffalo with a traditional suede but it is NOT suede. It is the back side of the buffalo leather which has been brushed and it is much stronger and hard-wearing than suede. I have been wearing my stilettos this winter in the brushed buffalo quality -even in snow and rain and they still look fresh as new. All you have to do is to brush them with a soft brush. No extra impregnation is needed.

To be honest the pump started out as a kind of a compromise to me (I´m not really good at compromises, but I have learned that sometimes they can turn out pretty good). I personally love our classic 10 cm stiletto -even if I´m 180 cm tall and so did our clients, but we had a lot of requests for a lower version. The producer of our shoes was not fond of this idea either as he felt that “lower than 10 cm is not very sexy”. However in the end he was convinced to make it and I think he also agrees that the result is actually quite chic and sexy. I can tell you the pump are on my feet and I already love them! On top of the look they are absolutely fantastic to wear. You can get you own right here

Less is not always more…

Since I was a child I have had a minimal approach to material goods. I loved my room and the things that surrounded me, I just never liked to have more things than I would use everyday. I continued this principle in my adult life HOWEVER there are a few exceptions! To tell you the truth I have a weakness for leather bags, shoes and natural beauty products. When it comes to these categories everything is different; I can always convince myself there is room for another bag/pair of sandals/bottle of body oil. At the moment the above are some of my favorites, I especially like how a different bag can change your look completely.

Friday!

I love my everyday life and to me a Monday morning can be just as fresh and vivid as a Saturday night. However not much beats Friday and today I´m in the mood for my stilettos and mini purse. Happy weekend to all of you!
