Serpentine Sofa by Vladimir Kagan 

I would be lying if I said that the darkness hasn’t been affecting my mood. I’ve been trying to compensate my not so focused mind with sharp outfits; blazers and heels. I’ve been drawing inspiration from Julie Pelipas, whose work for Vogue Ukraine has made the magazine one of the best Vogues, and the January issue is not an exception. Also Julie herself is very inspiring woman and definitely worth following.

At home I still need comfort and soft shapes. My latest addiction is Carmen D’Apollonio’s ceramic works and I also wouldn’t mind having the Serpentine Sofa by Vladimir Kagan.

The expected news broke yesterday that Phoebe Philo is exiting Céline, and to be honest, I don’t think she will return. We can only cherish the archives that we have from nearly a decade, which in their timelessness will be relevant for many years to come.

Besides Céline, this December I’ve been inspired by the old grandpas of Paris and their way of dressing up and layering. Masculine clothes have always been my weak spot, the men’s Prada coat above with contrast top stitching would be quite a treasure.

I’m also searching for a perfect vase to cheer up our tiny apartment, something sculptural such as the ones designed by Sara Flynn.

I started the october moodboard with very edgy and cold shapes but over the weekend it transformed to something completely different. How fast the mind is influenced. In the resent Mastermind magazine there is a great chapter about anonymity including editorial with Margiela archive pieces and an article about the anonymous man himself. The darker the mornings are getting, the more I’m interested in the idea of fast and functional, straight out of bed -wardrobe and -beauty routines, being offline and taking the focus off from myself.

I had a very interesting discussion with a friend of mine about routines , which gave a theme for my september moodboard. I’ve always enjoyed developing new routines to increase productivity in the everyday life. However, as we become blind for our habits, this month I want to dedicate for re-thinking all of them, whether I’m still in control of them or if they are leading my day. As much as I enjoy my morning coffee, I don’t want my day to be ruined without it.

Autumn always has this great energy for thinking things outside of the box. I’ll try to make the most of it with by trying new recipes, planning outfits from my existing wardrobe, absorbing ideas and giving second chances. It’s all about keeping mind open for possible new favourite things, that may end up being part of your routines.

Kazuo Shiraga – Suiju, 1985

Currently I’m obsessed with the flowy layering done at Céline SS2017 collection with the trousers. Also I’ve been spotting Japanese painter Kazuo Shiraga’s artwork in different exhibitions and got very inspired by his way of working and capturing the movement.

This moodboard maybe reflects a bit my longing for the sea breeze.

MONTHLY MOODBOARD – Currently on my mind are all things silky and flowy, kimono shapes and modern architecture. Summer light makes everything prettier.
