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.

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.
Shirt from Bazuhaus
Lately I’ve been using non stop this oversize white shirt from an Ukranian brand Bazuhaus. It’s made from deadstock cotton and the fit is just perfect; long enough to wear with yoga leggings and short enough to tuck in to flare pants.

I finally got to visit the Basquiat and Schiele exhibitions at Fondation Louis Vuitton. I was really looking forward to see Schiele’s works, but unfortunately I got very disappointed by the setting; very dim lighting and weirdly dark walls which made it very difficult to enjoy. The Basquiat part on the other hand was not bad at all. I wasn’t in the mood to study all the political aspects in the paintings but even with a quick browsing I was very aesthetically pleased.

The darker the days got, the lazier I got with dressing up! I wore this outfit maybe every other day in December, because let’s face it, as much as I try to enjoy the winter, I’m trying to make the bare minimum amount of decisions during the days to save some energy. And with a huge winter coat it doesn’t really matter what you wear underneath, right?
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.
