This is my go to summer outfit during periods of unreliable weather. The dress is made of denim which means that it’s sturdy and warm, which is perfect for the chillier summer days. I enjoy adding the top to lots of different outfits, as it adds a more feminine touch because of the cinched waist. Dress and top by Acne, bag by Valentino, shoes by Kurt Geiger.

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.
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.

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.
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.

I’ve had this dress for some years now, and it’s one of those dresses I just love wearing every season. It’s made in an impressively thick sofa fabric, and that makes for a great weather transition dress. You know, when it’s staring to get warm but is still a bit chilly in the shade. I got it from ebay for only $12. Bag by Calvin Klein.
This might be the coolest fanny pack on earth! I met the lovely Caroline Brasch Nielsen in Soho today. The striped shirt with those ripped of sleeves, paired with a straight skirt looks so damn good.
I know we are waiting for summer but I can’t begin to tell you how many goosebumbs I got when the the pink shearling coat came down the runway during the Nina Ricci FW12-13. The volume, the belted waist and the perfect shade of pastel pink just makes this a perfect winter coat which I am sure will actually keep me warm. The twist of the long sleeves on the purple elegant dress is a fun quirk. The last dress is oversized but in such a good way with the right proportions. Love it Peter Copping!
