I’m moving this summer. Twice. That’s right, two times in two months. After having lived in Switzerland for 5 years, I’m finally moving back to my home country Denmark - yay! - but that's not all; I’m also moving into my little summer house in the hills of the lovely Piedmont region of Italy. And I love moving! You get rid of all your old stuff and add new things - it brings around change, and I like that. So, right now I’m picking out lamps, chairs, tables and whatever else we need. These are a few of the things I'm considering: Caravaggio Lamps from Lightyears, About A Chair from Hay and crocheted rubber bowl from neó. The wooden table will look great in my Italian house, which is located in the countryside and quite rural in its' aesthetic. A table like this is undoubtedly super expensive, but I hope to find a local carpenter who can make it at a reasonable price. I'll show you more as we go along, and I promise to post pictures when we're all settled.

Nothing inspires me more, than when I find new amazing leathers - and I'm SO exited about these new pony hair leathers! Aren't they beautiful? They're for next years collection, so you'lll have to wait a little while to see what I do with them. Uh - can't wait to get started!
When my children first discovered crayons, they would come to me on a daily basis - all proud and happy – with one ‘beautiful’ drawing after the other; and I would always smile, clap my hands together and express my admiration. But let me be honest with you: very often – well, almost always - their ‘art works’ were hideous scribbles, and it wasn’t as much the quality of their work I reacted to as their effort, and as a way to express my love for them. The children that is – not the drawings…
Berlin-based up-an-coming fashion designer Mads Dinesen also happens to be a much beloved family member, but I can assure you that my admiration for his work is in no way comparable to the ‘admiration’ I once felt for my children’s ‘art’. I’m actually, truly and literally in awe of everything he does. Mads is still a young designer and until now his focus has primarily been on men’s fashion, however, the images below show a few pieces from his first women’s collection. Rough and feminine, frail and tough all at once. I love it, and I look forward to much more. See more images and read the interesting story behind the collection here.
