Inspiration

While I’m still quite old-fashioned when thinking about conscious clothes, this spring collection for H&M had me convinced that clothes don’t have to be off-white, loose and linen-like to be conscious.

I have fallen in love with 3 classics:

The white tailored 3-piece suit

The black one-piece with cropped pants and open back

and

The perfect LBD

Many have seen it. Some of them have lived it. And I just ended up being obsessed with it.

As usual I neglected the excitement everyone seemed to share about the new ‘it’-colour mint. But then, already then I could have told myself that it would certainly become my all favourite colour at some point.
And of course too late.

It started out when I insisted on painting the walls in our new apartment in ‘light mint’ to make it look more royalistic. My rather untraditional idea was accepted, though almost every apartment in Denmark has standard white wall clear wallpaper. As a reward I came up with maybe the best name for an apartment ever: “The Mint Penthouse”. And the mint obsession began.

Now everything mint-coloured is pretty, no matter what it is.

The last few days of the heat were almost like danish summer is used to be in general. With the sun shining all through the day it seemed to be a boring fact that the temperature only got up to 18 degrees. Bare legs came through the town in pairs and jackets were tossed over the arms. Even though the winter wasn’t that wintery this year, the summer is the most anticipated change we are waiting for.
As seen in Spring/Summer 2012 collections, magazines and streetstyle blogs the absolute must-colour this summer will be:

Designers’ choice:


Alexander Wang


Lanvin


Givenchy


Louis Vuitton


Stella McCartney

Street choice:

My addition to the white wardrobe:
Nike Air Max 90
