it's good to be ugly after all

When I spotted them at a shop in Denmark, I had to take a pick to bring it home like a trophy and show you that, yes, they are back and more arty than ever. On the airport I bought the magazine Dansk, which by the way made me laugh aloud. And there we met again: the fairy Buffalo and me. It is definitely not love. It is not hate either. It is complicated fashion.

Srečanje s takšnimi grdki me spomni, da smo se nekoč šli nekaj takega, kot je street fashion, s čimer ne mislim na toaleto Lanvin na pločniku ob 9h zjutraj. Bil je čas, ko je obstajalo več mod in vsaj ena, uličarska, ni imela veze s tem, kaj je bilo v revijah, ker, hej, kdo pa je sploh listal revije, če si ves ljubi dan prebil na vogalu.

lejlighed



Staying in a hotel is very much like Lost in Translation without Bill Murray. Cheap hotels are just sad. And the sheets in expensive ones (that I get to stay at when traveling for Elle) still have that not-at-home smell that keeps me awake (and no Bill Murray to talk to). I have exceptional googling skills (don't laugh, it is a special skill), so when I travel I always do my best to rent an apartment or a room. On the photos you can see the lejlighed where I spent my nights (and one afternoon) in Copenhagen. That it is a single girl apartment made it all that more special.

Vsake toliko oznanim, da je čas za selitev, navadno takrat, ko pridem iz kakšnega drugega stanovanja v drugem mestu. Danes sem že gledala, kaj se ponuja v centru, in spet prišla do zaključka, da ni, da ne bo, da se morda moram preseliti nekaj tisoč kilometrov stran, da bi našla belo in škripajoče in kar je še teh Perecastih reči, ki me spravijo v doma-sem stanje.

made in slovenia

ELLE chose a few of the new Slovenian fashion talents and featured them in the latest issue. This is my selection of those I found most exciting and maybe even part of the Slovenian heritage. First up is Petja Zorec with a bulky sweater. Everyone that does knits - respect.  It also reminds me of the good old days of Rašica. The deer inspired the Sanija Reja collection and if you don't know it yet, the deer are quintessential to the Slovenian culture, they are part of the establishment; as we don't have crowns, we decided to go for the deer horns. Just think Laibach. So, dear, if you don't dig deer you will never get the attention of the Ministry of Culture. Next up is Anja Dragan that made this Margiela like hair jacket, I have no idea how it works in real life, but on the pose in the photo it looks a winner (a real Man Repeller), I see no connection with typical Slovenian ways of life here but would totally get me of my I-want-violet-hair obsession. Best for last, the sublime creation by Peter Movrin which just shows that we do good black, we do good drama. As much as I don't like a pink elephant in the room, I would love to have this black elephant very near me and not be overwhelmed by it but just take it to a bistro for a coca cola. How would that Movrin jacket get on with my skinny jeans?

Če je tole ogrevanje za ljubljanski fashion week, potem bo še zanimivo. Morda si bomo celo škrabljali v beležke, kateri look bo prihodnjo sezono pristal v naši omari in ne samo v editorialu. Na ulice z njimi!

la collectionneuse

Now it is time to meet the content of the big white box. I was scanning yoox.com on a daily basis ever since I found out they actually stock Céline. After a few missed opportunities I double clicked when I saw this prime example of the first Phoebe Philo collection for  the house. That's right, the sandals are from the Resort 2010 collection which (in fashion years) seams like ages ago but is still one I keep going back to for inspiration. I also love the 8 cm heel as I have promised myself (and my hubbie) I will not be buying any more skyscrapers. Because of this kind of fashionable encounters yoox.com is my favorite store. Yes, the layout would need some brushing up, but it is also the only place where you can get pieces from the same Prada collection that was showing in the museum Les Arts Décoratifs. Last seasons are so vintage!

Še vedno čakajo na naš prvi uradni zmenek, ubožci še niso pili piva v LP ali šli na klepet z the girls, čeprav prejšnji teden ni manjkalo priložnosti, na obisku sta bili namreč visoki modni gostji iz Londona IN Milana. Ne vem, zakaj, ampak nekaj časa moram imeti stvari doma, da se navadijo na sobno temperaturo, na moje nonšalantno korakanje mimo njih. M* je že nekajkrat treščil v njihovo škatlo in mene je že zagrabila panika, ali jih morda vendarle ne bi raje poslala nazaj, ne zato, ker niso popolni, ampak ravno zato, ker so.

psssssst

My first box with the C word.

Prišla je včeraj in sedaj se doma še malo medi. Kako za vraga udomačiš Céline?
