Skola kan ge bildning, men icke skapa konst. Konst kan skapa skola men icke konst. Trevande efter stil är levande konst. Färdig stil är icke konst.

Det stora kan nu ske endast undanskymt. Konst uppstår enbart ur känsla, behag, lynne, hemligt, förkrossande arbete och förfärlig ensamhet.

Skinny heels

Skinny heels by French brand Vetements. The brands on everyones lips at the moment. Well not really, but more or less. You didn’t miss Kanye West turning up in one of their oversized hoodies on fashion week in Paris right? Even though the hoodie might not be the to-die piece in their fall collection, I am admiring their aesthetic and how they work with proportions. Several designers in the team have a background at Margiela, so maybe it is not that surprising. And if you look closer at their collections, you will see that there are several signature shapes taken just from Margiela. Anyways, I do like their skinny heels.

Essentials

Self Service Magazine always list their essentials for the annual summer vacation. Well, not their own essentials, more or less people in their surroundings and peeps in the industry. I have just recently been in Italy and one of the stops where in Positano, where you can find a beautiful selection of straw bags. There were so many chic bags you get craze mazed, like this Pampleonne basket above from Sarah Lavoine, and I really wanted to get one but didn’t know how to pack it on my way home… Classic, right?
