HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZALANDO!

What can I say, sometimes it’s a hard knock life here because most of the onlineshops don’t deliver to Switzerland, as we don’t belong to the European Union. But Zalando does. Since 2 years. And I that’s why I’d like to say “Happy Birthday" and "Thank you" for selling many of my favourite labels like Ganni, Bruuns Bazaar, Rodebjer or Carin Wester – where I got this lovely white Tuva Sweater in the picture above from).

MY NEW BAG? THE LBB FROM LITTLE LIFFNER

imageimageimageimage

Yesterday I had lunch with my friend Jasmin and I were talking about everyday-bags. I feel like a totally need a new one ( I’m actually dreaming of  "Le Sac De Jour" in navy, but okok… let’s drop this). And then a couple of hours later when I browsed through Nouvelle I stumbled upon the Swedish label Little Liffner. And – eureka! – there it was!  My new everyday-bag to be: the LBB. The LBB is made from lizard embossed leather and comes with a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap and black leather nametag. This fall it joined the Little Liffner family together with the Spotted Mini Clutch and two versions of the envelope bag: The Scarlett Leather and The Shades Of Black Clutch (very nice siblings!)

STYLE TRICKS FOR SMALL APARTMENTS

imageimageimageimageimageimage

Today I’m loving this very small studio apartment I discovered at fantastic Fantastic Frank. Though there’s only one room, it looks quite spacious. It’s the light and airy furniture that does the trick.

image

Here’s how to style your small place: Mulig Clothing Rack from IKEA // folding chairs are great, because if you don’t need them, just fold them together and put them aside: like the B Chair designed by Konstantin Grcic, available for example via Nest // small Blyth Storage Side Table from Habitat // Desk A-LA from Bolia (on sale!), can be used as a desk and as a dining table // the String System from Nils Strinning is very versatile and appears never too bulky // AJ Floor Lamp from Arne Jacobsen via Finnishdesignstore // display your favourite clothes: Wire Hangers from Ferm Living.

The latest additions to my wardrobe: I don’t know why but I fell in love with this print and now finally got my hands on the Carin Wester Tyre Fox Print Blouse // for a comfy autumn city stroll: Velvet Slippers from KaufDichGlücklich // oh that red: Chanel Elixir 589 Nailpolish // finally my own cup: Arne Jacobsen Design Letters Cup // Dior Crème de Rose, a smoothing lip balm, smells heavenly of Damask Rose – I’m totally addicted. Have a nice Sunday, lovelies!

A NEW ON- AND OFFLINE CONCEPT STORE: THE LINE

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

To be honest, often when I’m sitting in front of my computer late at night, tired after my dayjob, I ask myself “Why the hell am I doing this?”. But then, like today, I discover something and in an instant I realize that this is one of those moments of bliss, moments that make blogging worth it. What I’m talking about is the first collection of Protagonist, a collection of refined essentials designed by Kate Wendelborn, that makes its debut on The Line, an exciting New York based concept and e-commerce site. The Line is the latest endeavour from fashion stylists Morgan Wendelborn and Vanessa Traina, with their vision to sell a quintessential range of carefully selected goods from emerging names across fashion, home and beauty (like Reed Krakoff, Vince, Christophe Lemaire or Rodin). And all those goods also come together in the intimate context of an”off-line home”: The Apartment – a boutique that will be the starting point for discussions, workshops, screenings, dinners and other events.

Eytys is a Stockholm based unisex sneaker brand with the aim to produce the perfect platform sneaker for generation Y: “Born in the boom years of the 80’s, grew up with the street culture of the 90’s, and subsisted on a heavy diet of everything — and anything - which has always been just a click away.” Their first shoe style is called “Mother”, a classic low-top sneaker with a thick vulcanized rubber sole which is now available in their new webshop in leather, canvas and suede in different colours. Love.

THE ARTILLERIET STYLE

This is the apartment of the founder and owner of Swedish design store Artilleriet. Oh how I’d love to run my own design store one day – and I would be my best customer, that’s for sure. The first thing I would sell (and buy) is the writing desk from No Early Birds in the picture above.

STATTMANN NEUE MÖBEL

imageimage

Today I’m loving Stattmann Neue Moebel, a new label that was founded by the siblings Nicola and Oliver Stattmann, fourth generation of a cabinet maker’s family from Ascheberg in Northern Germany. Their aim is to produce modern, long-lasting and solid furniture made of wood and other ecological materials – unpretentious with surprising details such as very stable plug-in joints requiring neither glue nor screws. So if sometimes it happens to you that you start dancing on your chairs, make sure it’s a Stattmann.
