The Autumn Looks

Autumn is a dark and rainy season in Sweden. In those rare moments, when the weather gets better one realize how exceptionally beautiful the Swedish nature is with its bright colors and warm shades. The beautiful Swedish nature is also a great source of inspiration for me when it comes to choice of colors for my outfits. Autumn is also an excellent opportunity to wear elegant hats, cosy cashmere sweaters and colorful coats.  The outfits below were inspired by the beauty of the Swedish Autumn with grey, blue, khaki, black, beige, yellow and brown as dominant colors. I hope you enjoy the looks.  Have a cosy Autumn weekend everyone!

La Comedie Italienne is available in two different…

Chemins de Corail by Annie Faivre

I am very happy to share some pictures of my new Hermes scarf Chemins de Corail from the Fall/Winter 2016 collection. The scarf was designed by Annie Faivre and translates from French as “Coral Paths”. The Chemins de Corail scarf is absolutely adorable in bright orange, emerald and golden yellow colors (Hermes reference number H002207S 15). Even though this scarf comes from the Fall/Winter collection, in my view it can be worn any season of the year. According to www.hermes.com when working with this design Annie Faivre was inspired by her childhood memories from Africa, which is known for its beautiful, diverse coral reefs. Corals are the…
