The days in Paris have come to an end for this time. it has been an unusual Paris time with very little activity and much stillness. My body has demanded it of me and my soul needed the stillness. The day before last we did a fashion story with me and trees. The trees are not well. The platanes they say will all die out within 15 years. My heart was filled with sadness as I heard this so the story is about the trees really, for us all to open up our awareness to the nature we have around us and how very precious it is.
Little trees planted in my friends studio
and a platane in Paris. I really wanted to find platanes for our story…
looking for tree locations took days and was not so easy to find in the city. I loved these shadows…
Linus Ricard, the photographer, showing how to do the slow-motion moves
and hugging trees.
the young boy climbing one made me want to do the same.
At Ann-Sofie Back showroom choosing clothes for the story. I`m wearinng my favorite Zucca t-shirt, necklace from Temple and glasses from Ann-Sophie.
Beautiful treat! Headmassage from Nubu, the hair and makeup artist, before the make-up (which was all natural)
All packed and ready to go! Stylist Elin Bjursell and her assistant Yin Chun Lin
Another of my favourite garments, the dress from Tsumori Chisato, a big shawl from Khadi and Co and a bag from Mina Perhonen. The flat I stayed in was really empty and my clothes made the decoration.
Outside…how do we go? Taxi or metro? We opted for taxi which was a really bad choice that day going to bois de Vincennes, our choice of location, it took about 1 hour in heavy traffic jam instead of 15 minutes in the metro. It turned out to be for a good reason though…
the 10th anniversary of marathon run from Paris to le bois de Vincennes in favor of breast cancer research.Thousands of people all ages paying to run and giving not only money but all the good energy. I was very moved by the whole event and people I spoke to.
Fruit and cake break. The story we did is a secret until it comes out and it will be published here at Rodeo sometime…soon
Mission completed, me and Linus content after a full day
Elin and Yin Chun Lin as well
Beautiful sunny day in between many rainy days and a really beautiful day with wonderful people. Gratitude
