Next morning waking up…

in this golden room to a beautiful grey day…Why beautiful grey day? Soft rain falling is so peaceful on an early saturday morning. It says:Beloved you have nothing calling you out except your own heart. And eventually it did call me out to most delicious all organic breakfast from Järna cafe, sitting for hours by the fire writing and meeting friends. I had forgotten my chargers so I was totally off social media. What a bliss! I also did not have access to phone numbers. That was a bit of a problem, realising how  incredibly dependant I am on my iPhone. Anyway all of that helped me to just BE and to be free from must do`s and habits.

a little sun came through and Lucy and I had a walk with her saxDSC_0249

to my hearts joy I met dear friend Ellen Molnia doing some xtra work to add on to the travelling expenses for her and her family going four months to India this winter. You should hear this woman sing and perform! Her voice is flowing gold, her performance is pure ecstasy and joy and her heart is all of that and more. Look for GOLOKA

Last friday…

Last Friday is an event at KULTURHUSET in Järna, arranged by young people and attended by all ages. That may seem like a small detail but is very rare in Sweden, all ages meeting, relating and enjoying each others company and gifts. The last friday of the month, music is happening here. Both live and DJ:s. Great ecological hamburgers or vegoburgers are also happening then from Järna cafe. I love this place! I love all events they do here! I love the YIP program and the new students that come once a year for an in depth training in sustainable guardianship of our planet Earth and I love the nature around here. Both ecological gardens and forests and the Baltic, all in one place. All sustainable, all beautiful! A project saving the Baltic sea also has it`s roots here. This Last Friday my friend Lucy whom I met as a young YIP student two years ago played her sax with her boyfriend Tim on guitar and John, who had flown over from the states for this special event, on drums. Lucy and I met in a little tree house where she was sitting and writing as I stepped in. I immediately knew that I had met a sister of heart. Lucy was also one of the initiators of the S.O.S. Summer of Soil program last summer at Kulturhuset Järna. In terms of fashion how can anything be more fashion than caring for the beauty and survival of all beings and species on our planet.

late at night I went over to the hotel Kulturhuset for a good night sleep, with open window, drippling rain and birds song in the early morning.

Kenzo painting…

This site is about fashion and what can be more fashion than to follow one of the greatest explorers of fashion on his new explorations. His whole life is a creative artistic journey in beauty. Here in front of two of his paintings. to paint portraits is so totally new for him in this kind of classical way and it will be interesting to see where he will take it when he has been on it for awhile. Here a first peek of his first portrait of his friend Thierry.

DSC_9931DSC_9933and here an earlier more of a drawing technique. A series from a NO theatre theme…there is a lot more. He always makes me smile. His generous heart is a beautiful gift in itself that can be felt and seen in everything he does. Kenzo I love you.DSC_2848

With Kenzo in Paris…

KENZO! My very dear friend. We have known each other for more than 40 years now. We first met when he was standing on a ladder in his first little hole in the wall shop at passage Vivienne, painting a flower decoration on the wall. I came to see him to be in his first show which was inside the passage Vivienne. So much real joy and playfulness in that show! A new era in fashion started there and then! Immediate friendship also started to blossom between us then and has continued ever since. Kenzo is a being of extreme kindness and integrity and one of the most multi talented artists I know. He keeps surprising me. Since he stopped designing for his own brand KENZO,  he has expressed himself in many  different arts, designing both carpets and glass.Now he is painting. I love what he has done so far, different themes over the last few years, all big and colourful. I stayed at his house during this last fashion week and my last day in Paris we had a photo session for a portrait he is going to paint of me. It was a wonderful day with lunch at TOYO and also an interview with a japanese team doing a documentary on Kenzo. I`m so blessed!

Sealed with a kiss…

Pont des Arts! I love this bridge! I love it! The most extraordinary view of Paris on both sides, the lovers kissing, the music and pick nicks, the wooden ground…and the best way to walk from St.Germain to le Louvre, les Tuilleries, Palais Royal, place Vendome, Colette…comme des garcons…

DSC_9464All the love locks, thousands of them…are they from true lovers or is it just a trend a hype…as many locks as many kisses…a bridge full of locks sealed with a kiss…they say they will have to take them away, they are too heavy for the bridge. Where will all the kisses go?DSC_9471 I`m posing here for you,  filled with joy to be here…dressed in white. I love to wear all white in Paris, this time more than ever before and it turned out to be a lot of white in this seasons fashion shows as well. My coat is by Emma Hanseklint for Khadi and Co and my platform boots from Reschia, the rest is layers of silk from different places…DSC_9474a classic momentDSC_9483The locks are a trend that started here and the next trend is tagging them as well…explosion of creative expression…DSC_9488and new commerceDSC_9491filmmaking…DSC_9500coming to cafe Marly greeted by Patricia as always with a warm hug and the best table…just in front of le pyramide…and my lunch moment…now I`m in Paris!
