a week in fashion #89

By Marlene | Published: 24. April 2013

Oof. That’s the previous week in one word. And in a few more words: Work, work, work. Also: work. This week is no different. I’m trying not to go into full-on panic mode – why does a day not have 38 hours, WHY? – and look up from my desk occasionally and out the window. Because you know what else happened last week? Spring arrived. Glorious, sunny, barefoot-in-sandals temperatures spring. I’m high on this weather and I might even be wearing my sunnies indoors, if it didn’t make me look like a fool. These sunglasses here are from Very French Gangsters, a kid’s brand from France. Yeah, a kid’s brand. So the offspring get to look cooler than their parents. I discovered them at Lunettes a little while ago. I’ll show you more from my visit to their new store later this week. Until then, here are a few other things that have been distracting me from work.

*So that you grown-ups don’t feel left out, here are some sunglasses for you from Swildens that I like a lot.

*If you’re spending as much time at your desk as I am at the moment, and even if you’re not, these metal tins from Artilleriet would be nice to look at.

*Fine, I’ll admit it. I cry at commercials. The new Dove campaign about how women see themselves turned me into a complete mess.

*And because of the incredible thing that is the internet, there’s a spoof out already about how men see themselves. Laughing tears.

*Did you know that fabulous Paris store Merci now has an online shop? Hooray!

*The my own summer ring from “I need more rings” is one of my favourite pieces of jewelry. The girls now do the ring in gold as well. And they’ve done a neat little film to showcase their work. Bravo!

*Jenna Lyons is my hero. This portrait of her on Fast Company sums up why.

*This couple.

*I wrote about my love for pointy flats for Glam last week. The column (in German) is here.

*Soundtrack of the week: the self-titled new album from Junip, especially Line of Fire.

Alright, back to work. See you soon!
