If asked to describe my style, I'd have to say that it is derived from French, Japanese and Scandinavian influences. By living in France, I learned to appreciate the simple details and little luxuries like fine jewelry and heels or chic flats paired with a simple ensemble, and of course little leather goods. I am also attracted to the bolder shapes and lines of Japanese and Scandinavian clothing. To me, nothing is more elegant than wearing something simple that has a unique shape and movement.
Needless to say, I went on a bit of a shopping spree when I was in Copenhagen. I was in search of several things: white leather sneakers, unique shapes and beautiful objects.
Being on my feet on shoot days, I've come to appreciate a quality pair of sneakers that don't make me feel like I'm going out for a run (because we all know that is not happening). These have become my go-to black pair, but I was interested in finding something in white as well. I scoured Copenhagen and found these gems in Tiger of Sweden and immediate fell for them (so much so that I went to every location in Copenhagen to find my size).
I also figured that such a rainy city was going to be the place to find a great raincoat. It is easy to feel frumpy in a raincoat, so I thought this task would be challenging. However, this one from Samsoe & Samsoe won my heart as it is slimming and not bulky.
When in Scandinavia, it seems only natural to pick up some Acne jeans and a little something from COS. This top was precisely what I was looking for: a unique shape with interesting details. The shape is unique in that it lays perfectly on the body, while creating a nice volume, and also has nice movement. Also, how could I resist those circular pockets?
Since I was running out of room in my suitcase, for the objects, I limited myself to this Muuto french press and mugs, which I had been eyeing (somehow I didn't break them on the plane). I also picked up two pairs of scissors and a cork cone for H to keep at his desk.
