All though I always wanted to make my own dress of old laces I’ve found on vintage markets. IMG_7188 kopiera

Ultramarine by Hermès

by Emma Elwin on 18 February, 2015

Emma is inspired by the photographer Zoë Ghertner.
For my Cape town trip I’m very much inspired by the photographer Zoë Ghertner  collaboration with Hermès for the shooting of Hermès women’s timeless ready-to-wear “vestiaire” collection.

In her first film on the subject, “Ultramarine” there is salt in the wind, footsteps in the sand, sensuality in each detail. A tale of the exquisite freedom of summer.Herm├¿s-Ultramarine-credit-Zoe-Ghertner8

In 9 days I’ll hopefully be back in the water. It’s not all excitement, I’m actually a bit scared this time. You see my destination is Capetown and I can’t help but reading about the sharks that live in those waters. All though god know I need to do some surfing to get my self straight again.


The shirt skirt

My love for pale blue shirts has gone to a new level of craziness. I just couldn’t resist this shirt-skirt from Gant Rugger. For the handy person with a sewing machine that’s working (I know that’s no excuse from my part) this skirt is really easy to make of an old oversized shirt!

I can only quote Neada when it comes to scarves. “How to wrap? Where to knot ? Why is this thing flapping in my face?!?” But getting inspired by my friends I just couldn’t resist trying it at home the other day. The scarf stayed on for five minutes tops. I know that my editor Jonna is also struggling with this misery accessory. How do you guys feel about scarves?

Like all Swedish people I’m longing so much for summer right now it’s almost ridicules. Earlier this evening I for some reason stated trying my summer cloths. I also spend at least 10 minuts a day looking on houses abroad. Anyway, what I really wanted to talk about is this Marrakech looking coat. I’m gonna have a look around my favorite vintage stores if I can find something similar for spring. Last summer I found a shirt just like i that I was living in our month in Costa Rica.
