The Gentlewoman issue #3

The spring/summer 2011 issue of The Gentlewoman came out in Sweden this week. The new issue celebrates opinionated and passionate women who are taking the international stage - women the magazine refers to as "true icons of the modern age, encouraging others with their intelligence, wit and style". The new number features interviews with singer Adele Adkins, writer Fatima Bhutto and Sarah (creative director of Colette) among others.

The latest issue also includes fashion reports with outfits focusing on rear view for elegant evening looks and beautiful flowing long skirts - typically gentlewoman style.

Speaking of colours lately this number features an article titled "Colourations" with the Gentlewoman's spring/summer 11 palette including the colours tomato, armani blue, butter, indian jade, sunbaked tan, fuchsia and aloe green. As a contrast to the the very colourful palette "a total universe of whiteness" is also proposed in an article with white garments only.

...In other words the latest issue of The Gentlewoman is a must read!

Work In Progress

Work in progress
I realised that I haven't shown you any pictures from my studio yet, so I took some more detailed pictures this week. My studio is currently located in my small apartment in Gothenburg. I'm going to take a few more pictures soon so I can show you more of how my work space looks!

I hope you guys had a lovely weekend! I spent mine visiting friends and family in southern Sweden. Tomorrow it's time to work in the studio again and finish a couple of orders :)

There Is Thunder In Our Hearts

Fieldguided tote
I hope you are all having a great Wednesday! Last week I received a package with a tote that I bought from lovely Anabela in Toronto :) View her blog Fieldguided here.

I feel so happy for it and I'm already carrying the bag with me everyday now. The quote is from one of my favourite songs with Kate Bush titled Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God).

Thank you, Anabela!

Where The Wind Blows

Yesterday me and my friend Rachel took a small trip to the countryside. It was really sunny and it finally felt like spring was here. We might have been a bit too optimistic however, because even though it was sunny it was still very very cold outside and icy winds were blowing, so it was really hard to get photographs without my hair flying all over the place all the time :) But the spring light was amazing and we were so happy to at least get a glimpse of the sun after a very long gloomy and grey Swedish winter.
