Not only that autumn is my favorite season weather wise, but also every September takes place my most anticipated weekend of the year; the European Heritage Days (Les Journées du Patrimoine). During these two- or three days most of the monuments, government buildings and cultural sites, even the ones that are usually closed for public, open their doors for free visits.

This time I went to visit the Préfecture des Hauts-de-Seine in Nanterre, which sounds nothing but boring for anyone who lives in Paris. But what an overly 70’s, gorgeous design- and art heaven it was behind closed doors. I especially loved the LC1 chairs by Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand, which were everywhere down the halls and conference rooms.

The Row finally opened their third physical store, and the first one in Europe! I can’t wait for the day they’ll open a store in Paris, I guess it’s just a question of finding the right real estate. Meanwhile I hope to be able to visit London soon, as the store with all its art and design is definitely something not to miss, including the welcoming light installation Elliptical Glass (2017) by James Turrell.

You can read more about the store with an interview of the twins at the Financial Times.

Summer is approaching and I’ll be spending most of it in the city, which I’m quite excited about. Although, we are doing a longer road trip to the Balkans in the end of the summer but that’s another story, I’ll still have two whole months to enjoy Paris before that.

I completed my wardrobe last summer with some great pieces and I can’t wait to wear them (ald also my mom’s old sandals) while wandering around in vintage markets and museums. I swear on white linen and silk during warmer days, as I need to cover my skin completely from the sun.

Barcelona Pavilion by Mies van der Rohe

The Barcelona Pavilion was the first thing I wanted to see at Barcelona. As everyone maybe knows, I’m a huge fan of Mies van der Rohe and it’s always a dream come true to get to experience beautiful architecture on the spot. I wish I could’ve been able to capture the light as it was inside, reflecting from the light marble and transforming through the blue glass windows. So beautiful.

Finally I took some time off to visit Villa Savoye near Paris in Poissy. It is a house Le Corbusier designed for the Savoye family in the 30’s and one of the most significant buildings in the modern architecture.

I visited on a weekday and was lucky enough to discover the house all by myself. On a sunny day the sun rays were flooding in and revealed the gorgeous shapes and details. My favorite part of the house is the round entrance with windows from ground to ceiling. I just wished there were some furniture, as everyone knows I’m a huge fan of Le Corbusier’s chairs!Näyttökuva 2019-2-25 kello 10.45.59IMG_8115

We might have to wait for couple days for the official show pictures of The Row’s latest collection, but I couldn’t wait to share one sneak peek I found through Instagram. The set with Jean Prouvés aluminum and metal sun shutters already made me die and took me into mid-century modern -heaven, but also the collection will be something that sticks in my inspiration folders (and partly in my wardrobe) forever.

Givenchy Pre-Fall 2019 / voguerunway.com

Another Pre-Fall 2019 lookbook that is very aesthetically pleasing. Givenchy with the lead of Clare Waight Keller has been so far very interesting, although this collection is, as usually the pre-collections are, highly commercial. But everything is forgiven, when the location is my favorite architectural spot in Paris, Maison La Roche, and the looks have been put together by Suzanne Koller. Also I’m trendspotting some half and half color blocking as seen above and at Calvin Klein 205W39NYC.
