I find it incredibly inspiring that one city can harvest so much creativity. When I arrived in Milan this season I was so excited to be on the ground for my second Milan Fashion Week… Bellissimo! Milan is a city that evolves before you, not obviously beautiful from the onset, but forever unfolding hidden layers…

Tokio ist gleichzeitig modern und traditionell – sahen wir bei der Taxifahrt in die Stadt nur die neuesten Gebäude aneinander gereiht, fanden wir uns in Asakusa in einem alten Viertel wieder, bei dem uns die vielen Stromkabel mehr an Bangkok als an Tokio erinnerten. Beim ersten Spaziergang durch unsere Gegend, schlenderte ich einfach ohne Plan… Continue reading →

Escapism – Sometimes life gets in the way of posting in the moment…but in this case, better late than never!

I have always strongly believed that a picture can speak a thousand words. And when the location is Santorini, visual storytelling is fully justified.

Out of OFFICE – Currently in Miami…stocking up on #oldceline Couldn’t resist a few new editions of the recently changing brand, including this oversized canvas bag that I have been coveting.

Like most people, I always catch myself saying, ‘if only I had more time on my hands’. In the holistic sense of the meaning, this kind of challenge would only be counteracted by cutting back on the amount of hours I work, which would not seem like a practical solution, or let’s be honest a fun…
Aahh Venice, most loved for it’s long winding water ways, handsome gondoliers (uber driver rating = 5.0) and picturesque pastel fascades.

It may just be a coincidence or perhaps even fate, but something was drawing me to Italy and it wasn’t just Venice.

Last week I was in Tulum for only 4 days, which may be too short a period of time for some people given all the expenses and the effort to go all the way from Canada, but for me it was like a therapy. It was more than a therapy really, I struggled with severe winter depression for the entire month of December (happens to me every winter unfortunately, but only gets worse and worse every year) and spending care-free time with my husband in paradise was exactly what I needed to feel alive again.

Living in another country goes hand in hand with meeting new people. Sometimes inspiring people, like Florine, the owner of Sunny Cords. She moved from The Netherlands (hello fellow Dutchie!) to Sydney for work. She was desperately looking for sunglasses cords, which in The Netherlands, is very common. Instead of looking any further, she decided to make her own. Today her company Sunny Cords is so successful, that she had to cut her working hours in half. So next to her part-time job, she’s a parttime girlboss! Or probably full-time,… Read More

In this look: 2 Way Drawnstring Bag – Hunting World How to experience hot air balloons in Turkey Wearing: 2 Way Drawnstring Bag – Hunting World There’s nothing as peaceful in the world as a hot air balloon flight, said the woman sitting next to me at dinner, the night before we were due to go out and see them ourselves. The dining room was, like the rest of our hotel, dug out right into the rocks, generations ago. In fact, all the little townships in this area of Cappadocia, Turkey, resembled human sized ant hills, that you’d imagine anthropomorphized forest animals living in, in children’s cartoons. In this look: 2 Way Drawnstring Bag – Hunting World “They fly right over my terrace some days,” Continued the woman, who, by her own account, had woken up at dawn every morning to see them, in the 15 years she’d lived here. “the pilots are used to seeing me.

As flippant as that sounded, it turned out to sum the story […]

Almost exactly one month ago in Stockholm three women named Anna, Karin and Isabella open their newer and larger hair salon location.
The women designed and sketched the renovation for their new spots and chose every facet of the interior themselves. From the color palette to mirrors and even the bespoke smocks made exclusively for Paloma Dolores, every part of this space has evidence of their personal handiwork. The owners even got their handy boyfriends to pitch in on a lot of the work.
The beautiful photos were taken by Ulrika, who will recognize from her recent articles including this Autumnal DIY and part I of a city guide to STHLM! Find the new location at Östgötagatan, in Södermalm.
Your love affair with Calvin Klein may have started with a well cut denim clad Justin Beiber artfully intertwined with super babe Lara Stone for the 2015 #mycalvins campaign, or perhaps a 15 year old Brooke Shields wrapped in her Calvins during the early 1980’s, but for me the most iconic moment was the 1992 imagery featuring a […]
Swedish Photographer and mother of two, Ulrika Nihlén is becoming a regular contributor here at AMM. Today she shares with us her favorite shopping spots from around the city of Stockholm.
I would say I am a pretty skilled internet shopper however I have a love list of small stores I love in Stockholm. I would rather buy few from the small businesses for a bit more money than buy a lot of cheap stuff. Also it feels more environmentally conscious and it is nice talking to the ones who work in the stores, I love that part of small personal businesses.
I mean yes, they are expensive and yes sometimes waaay to crazy for me but all their shops are amazing to visit and come on, I am proud to be a Swede when people around the world say they love Acne! (And also, their shoes and coats ARE worth saving for!)
Nytorgsgatan and Norrmalmstorg are the best locations
Hard not to mention the best baby shop in town owned by my sweet friend Petra Gardefjord. She makes moccasins for babies 0-3 years old but in her store she also has so many other lovely handpicked pieces from small brands around the world. You’ll want everything in every little corner in this cutest shop!
Located at Nytorgsgatan 23B
Maybe you don’t go to Sweden to buy flowers but hey, you would love to give this amazing flower shop a visit for your eyes. And the girls who work there are so nice you could stay and chat here forever.
This place is sort of unique. All of the crafts are made from their 93 members of craftsmen. They all do work with their hands, mostly ceramics which are totally amazing. Here you can buy these small unique things that you will cherish forever.
It is fun that this perfume store from New York opened in little Sweden, or is it just me?
This girl has the best of taste. Mimmi has this eye to curate everything she puts in her shop and I subsequently want to have in my own home. Every S I N G L E item. I can go crazy here!
Vattenledningsvägen 57, Hägersten
Japanese tourists come here to find selected sneakers. I like to visit their men’s shop to look at their interior which changes often. I also like their small women’s shop to find a selection of handpicked jewelry.
Here you’ll find all the best looking magazines! It’s also the place to find that movie from the 40’s to gift your grandma for Christmas.
I was so happy when this store opened in last year. Exactly what Stockholm was missing, an interior store with handpicked details from brands that all are built on craftmanship. This store is so beautiful and the founders Robin and Ejub are so nice.
Sankt Eriksplan 15
This little interior store is so cozy and here you will find upcoming artists and new on-trend products (right now I am in love with their terra-cotta milk pot for example). It’s a MUST to visit this place.
Florence Travel Story Jiawa wears: Hunting World NYC 2 Way Draw String & Mini Duffle Bags; Kurt wears: Hunting World NYC Carry All Bag I wonder if the secret to Florence’s enduring beauty, its undisturbed Renaissance architecture, and its tiny cobbled streets that so far escaped the threat of urbanisation, owes partly to the fact that, apart from a particular week twice a year, it’s often overlooked as an Italian destination. But that one week, how everything changes. The showings, the parties, and the throngs of competitively well dressed men that overflow the terraces of Caffé Gilli, where cocktails and candy are served side by side. That it was Pitti Uomo once again (or simply ‘Pitti’, as affectionately know by the regular crowd) is obvious from the diminishing taxi availability and even more than usual sightings of coats worn as capes in the vicinity of Santa Maria Novella station. You may be forgiven for assuming that Pitti is a men’s street style event, rather than a men’s fashion industry trade show. It certainly does seem to the outsider that more people have come all over the world for the former rather than the latter. While all this will make a fascinating gander for […]
Yup, that’s me. You thought I was talking about someone else huh? No, I’ve been working and living on a farm in the Australian country for 4,5 months. Pause for reaction… Rick and I arrived in Sydney on a one-year Working Holiday visa. A so-called 417-visa. To extend our stay as foreigners, Dutch people in particular, we could try to get sponsored by an employer or do 88 days of farm work. We never really focused on getting sponsored, so we choose to do 88 days of farm work. Well, to… Read More
How to get around in Paris (and how not to) In this editorial: ‘Bank’ Bag by X Nihilo; Silk V Neck Top by Conflict of Ego; Step Hem Jeans by Grlfrnd Denim; Velvet Pumps by Dolce & Gabanna (similar) According to the Theory of Relativity, the faster one travels through space, the faster one travels in time.Go figure. But when it comes to how to get around in Paris and its cockleshell-shaped arrondisments, speed is not the question here. Rather, it is how best to travel without missing a thing. For, in Paris, those tucked away restaurants only the locals know, backstreet vintage shops that don’t find their way into city guides, and the most photogenic views, are not marked by colour-coded signposts. 1 On Foot Where the sights, sounds and sensations of each street and corner seduces you away from the Google Maps route, 30 minutes on foot in Paris is 5 minutes in London or New York. Indeed, the most beautiful things to experience are the smallest and simplest that the senses need to take time to savour: the scent of fresh baguettes permeating every street, the uniqueness of each ancient cobble stone, and the changing light, streaming […]

Copenhagen-based Norm Architects has done it again, designing a warm and dark space that translates to intimate and cosy.
The newly designed wine bar and restaurant Nærvær, which translates to Neighborhood, is in the Christianshavn area of the city, has a view the nearby canal and the old city centre beyond. With a dark wood wrapped, centrally located kitchen, guests get a front row seat to the preparation of meals by Yves Le Lay and crew.
“This conscious focus on tactility brings a warm, material richness to the interior that naturally compliments the raw concrete walls and industrial framework of the space,” says Norm.
Lighting was designed by Norm Architects and made from oil-burned steel frames and slender tubular diffusers that give off a warm and gentle brightness.
Potted plants and trees add a natural and bright feeling to the naturally lit corner in the bar along with delicate, dried flowers complementing the specially commissioned pottery and dishes made Danish ceramist Maj-Brit Würtz.

Who are you when you travel? The paramount question ask before you set off: Who are you when you travel? In this editorial: Shirt, Lace Bra, Silk Trousers & Silk Pyjama top and Pant by Grana As I write to you under the translucent blue skies of Sydney, a city where it is almost undiscernible where the beach ends and the glassy metropolis begins, I count this as the 7th city I have visited in the past three months. I feel that as I have encountered the diverse inhabitants of each setting, I myself have taken on their idiosyncrasies. Here in Sydney, I feel the rush to walk at a speed that keeps pace with the streets, that anti-social impatience as my Uber pulls up in a no-stopping zone while my soy-double-shot-flat-white is still 5 minutes away, and an almost nostalgic sensation when looking up at the blue sky, as though in the eyes-to-the-concrete rush, I had not seen it for days. It is a different me that lived from café terrace to cobbled streets in Paris, or the no-makeup, no-blow-dry me of Perth. It is a universally felt phenomenon that we transform into another our-self as we travel. Even […]

In this look: Dress: Hana Tajima for Uniqlo How to be (successfully) overdressed. Hint: channel Holly Golightly, in the supermarket, on the train, at the Laundromat… Created in collaboration with Uniqlo Australia Everyone is looking at you – whispered my commute companion, gesturing at the gaggle of archetypal scarved-to-the-upper-lip Parisian Madames that were our fellow passengers. ‘I guess you’re a bit overdressed for the Metro’, he concluded. Had I the get-up-and-go to argue at that moment, I might have suggested a number of similarly plausible explanations more kind to my eight in the morning delicate self-esteem. However, glancing down at my flowy bias cut dress (from the functional and beautiful Hana Tajima for Uniqlo collection), the floor length skirt of which almost needed a seat all on its own, and feeling the weight of my oversized sunglasses on the bridge of my nose, I had to admit to feeling somewhat ridiculous within the context of this commonplace scenario. As one determined to experience life by living out film references, I felt very much like a Holly Golightly in that quintessential Audrey Hepburn film. The protagonist, lending circumstance to the film’s name, takes a flimsy takeaway pastry and coffee breakfast while […]
