RAQUEL + DIOR

Raquel Zimmerman has an exceptional presence and is a bit of a master chameleon. Showing the bloopers in this long version makes the entire commercial so endearing.

2 SHADES OF WHITE

White and grey-white looks great together, I absolutely love mixing the different shades of the same color in one outfit. Sometimes I also add a creamy white sweater to these pants and jacket, instead of the the orange top. Jeans and bag by Calvin Klein, leather jacket by Acne, top by Tibi, necklace by H&M, sunglasses by Selima.

I WENT TO THE MET GALA!

I was so lucky that Calvin Klein invited me to join them at The Met’s Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. I was wearing a custom made dress by Francisco Costa. The process of designing the dress was incredible, we had two fittings over a couple of weeks, and seeing Francisco at work is really exceptional. Walking up the red carped I had to zigzag my way up between the photographers on each side, and Italo Zucchelli who’s the Calvin Klein mens wear designer and I agreed it was a lot of fun. Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada’s shares so many similarities, the quirk mixed with chic in their designs. Schiaparelli designed from the 1920′s and I loved getting to understand that people liked quirky at that time too, which is something I had never thought.

Of course I brought my camera and my pictures from the night are up at Calvin Klein’s Tumblr blog here. With more to come.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS

I got this camera in a vintage shop in a tiny village in Denmark this Wednesday. The day after I went to Copenhagen where I wanted to get a notebook I had been meaning to get for a while. The notebooks are handmade by the french brand Astier De Villatte and all the books are bit different. As I got back to New York I searched online to find film for the camera, and found this amazing Kodac Instamatic commercial from the 1960′s. I’m just saying, look closely at the floor.
