Sun faded

Via Golondrina of Mexico I stumbled upon two creative minds who both capture my mood right now, Kimbra Audrey and Lucia Zolea. Jetlagged mind, faded colors, linen, flowers, longer days, messy hair.

THIS ONE'S FOR YOU

From one of my favorite Bill Brandt books on a sunny afternoon.

Had the most wonderful catch up with Columbine and Alex in New York last night. We talked Space Sisters, inspiration and working toward creating images of the type of women who inspire us. We also touched on how hard it is to find quiet time for your brain to be relaxed to get inspired and how guilty I feel that I don’t post here more often, so Columbine, THIS ONE’S FOR YOU!  xx

i-D MAGAZINE, 1996
David Sims is one of my favourite fashion photographers working today. The stark modernism, plain backdrops and graphic posing is just breathtakingly beautiful. He creates immaculate yet energetic photographs and this image from i-D Magazine, February 1996 is definitely one of my most beloved ones. I’ve always been highly fascinated by Kate Moss, especially during the iconic 90’s when she was the face of Calvin Klein. I was 3 years old when this photo was taken and at the time I surely didn’t how much she would influence me later on in life. The fascination for Kate Moss stil is very much alive – she’s a style icon for a generation.

FUNDACIÓ JOAN MIRÓ
I love coming to Barcelona. Everyone I know loves coming to Barcelona. Here I spent my final year as a teenager and I would say that the city is one on my many homes. This is where my passion for art, architecture and history really blossomed. The city offers a reflection of our future pasts and It’s the home of Picasso, Miró, Dalí and Gaudí. There is so much history and so much art to explore! Having spent many hours wandering The Fundació Joan Miró during my time in the city, I would definitely recommend a visit when in Barcelona.

JACQUEMUS
There’s something special about Simon Porte Jacquemus and the way he portrays Frenchness. It was love at first sight in 2015 when I was introduced to his “L’enfant Du Soleil” collection. The details, yet the simplicity, quirkiness and subtly sexiness of his design represent everything I strive to be in a woman. I worship every single piece I have in my closet thanks to an ineffable mix of confidence, risk-taking and charm. He’s like the Emanuel Macron of the fashion world, bringing us hope and light and chance in a very dark age.
