I’m sure anyone who’s been following me knows how much I’m into good old print media and hunting rare pieces of fashion magazines. I might have mentioned this before but my go-to place for second-hand magazines and fashion- and art books is definitely Comptoir de l’Image in Le Marais. The grumpy (but very lovely) old french man owning the store has been collecting the pieces for over 40 years and knows quite impressive people within the industry. He’s not very eager to share his stories and might be even a bit offended if you decide to buy one of his treasures, but from time to time he gets in the mood to share his incredible memories.

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.

I’ve been eyeing for Raey’s white oversize jeans, or actually any jeans from the brand for that matter. The white ones seem highly impractical, mainly for the occasions when you are taking an Uber from one place to another and definitely not for my daily life including a bicycle. But that silhouette just attracts me way too much! I would love to pair them with a dark green cashmere sweater.

Umm let me just first mention that python print chair! Also my obsession to white tank tops continue, thanks to Daniel Lee. The Bottega girl will be the coolest in town.

Some things on my mind lately. I did a list of places to visit for 2019 and everything has something to do with architecture or art. Would definitely want to head to south of France soon and visit E-1027. I’m also planning to go to Art Basel in June and couldn’t be more excited about it.
Otherwise my sources of inspiration remain quite same. Lately I’ve been visiting some old favorite museums and galleries all over again and admiring everything that The Row does. I had a privilege to have a sneak peek on their prefall collection in advance and needles to say, it was gorgeous.

What I would love to wear right now; all white set from Raey paired with furry slippers and accessorised with sophisticated Repossi rings.
I was forced to take a small break as my computer broke in the beginning of December, but now I’m back with full of ideas and a new laptop. I have lots of plans listed down for 2019 and I can’t wait what the year brings along.
But just quickly returning to last year, I wanted to tell about an interview, that I did with BLOOC about our Paris apartment and life in general, you can find it here.
I found my new favorite gallery! I was profiting an evening off and walking around few days ago and accidentally saw the most interesting gallery; L’Atelier 55. The three floors are FULL of antique furniture, art, candles and small decoration pieces, everything from Ettore Sottsass to Pierre Jeanneret and Murano glass objects. As an opposite from usual galleries, which tend to be very distant and a bit scary to enter, L’Atelier 55 has more a boutique-like atmosphere with even prices put on everything. I might have to go back for the Murano glass ashtrays seen above. L’Atelier 55, 8 Rue des Saints-Pères, 75007 Paris
