Frida Kahlo was more than fashion she was absolutely a woman of wild deep passion. Now her wardrobe is being shown for the first time.
See it HERE
Now that the video is out the clothes we used are not a secret any more…! I love to do behind the scenes photos and would love to share them at the very moment…to give a reality dimension…but most people I work with ask me to wait. I wait.
Here comes the video we did in Paris october -12! What a day that was! One day of sunshine between many rainy ones. I shared the photos from the day on my blog 5/11-12. I KNOW that both Elin and Linus and are sitting there in Paris eager to see it coming up. So Here it comes! FLIMSY…! THANK YOU! LOVE YOU! Superteam: Linus Ricard and Elin Bjursell and Nobu Fujiwara.
The day was calm, the whole shooting was calm and quiet. In my imagination it would be a very quiet video…with focus on the trees…what turned out is FLIMSY…they thought I laughed a lot and wanted me to be more serious…but I felt so HAPPY, really happy to be there. My love for trees is HUGE. They are the lungs of the earth and as lungs help us breathe, give us oxygen…my heart was braking when I saw the first clean-cut woods in the north of Sweden, early 70s. That was then. It is so much worse now. The platanes in the south of france are all dying…! No trees no earth! Where do we want to go with it all? Love what we have is a good way to start. Julia Butterfly Hill is such a clear and beautiful inspiration. She lived over 700 days in a redwood tree to protest against clean cutting. Well, both sadness and joy in my heart. And DEEP LOVE and gratitude for being here. Thank you life! And here`s another one of Julia in the tree. TOTALLY moves me!
a million thanks to my friend and super coach Torkel Stalhand who helped me with all the links.
I am longing to share something more than just fashion…although in the world of fashion as well as everywhere else all of that what I`m longing to share exists as well, since it is deep in my heart. In now time I have been deep into nature, yesterday hours of ice skating in silence on a lake, like a mirror reflecting back to me my own deep longing to know the Love. In blog time I`m still in Paris fashion week, so here is more…fashion
Patches mixed with leather jackets
and pumps in bright colors
I loved this show
which also inspires to second hand recycling and patching oneself
Junya is so good at it
And sharing the show with my friend Anja was the best.
Next was Tsumori Chisato, another of my japanese favorite designers
Although this time it was not my personal taste I really love her work.
She had been in Argentina for inspiration…
and it was very strong colors and shapes influenced by that. I came to think of Carmen Miranda.
Really Haute Couture
Tsumori herself, wearing her happy ghost print dress. Such a fine being. Supertalented and very sweet
And my friend Georgio who hosts the sales and press for Tsumori.
