New political column

Exciting news – from today and onwards I’ll be writing a column for Norwegian website PolitiskeNyheter every week. It will be about all things political in Asia, first and foremost Hong Kong & China. My first article was published today and it’s about the chief executive race in Hong Kong, which has taken a wild … Continue reading

Acne fall/winter 2012

As every other Scandinavian fashion blogger on this planet I adore Acne. Their vision, creativity, collaborations and designs, of course. Every season they make clothes that I’m aching for. This time I wasn’t too fond of the styling, but there were some great colours (bright neon green!) and items to be found. Especially the outerwear … Continue reading

American Apparel wishlist

Today I’m on about American Apparel. Why? Simply because I really like this brand. It’s young, fun, easy to wear and mix with other things. And they actually use models who resemble normal girls in their adverts, which is refreshing. Being in Asia does weird things to me. Most girls here dress so feminine and … Continue reading

When Hong Kong is a woman

Louis Vuitton just released their first video in a series of city portraits – and it’s of Hong Kong! By using gender as a lens, they will portray different cities around the world. First one is called “When Hong Kong is a woman”. Really beautiful, and shows off a few things I like about the … Continue reading

Christopher Kane, I salute you

I’ve been a big fan of Scottish designer Christopher Kane ever since his legendary graduate collection for Central Saint Martins in 2006. I was studying fashion at the time and remember being completely obsessed with the neon bright tight dresses and big necklaces. He released his collection for Topshop soon after and of course, even … Continue reading

My work”space” (or lack thereof)

Wish I could say that I had an amazing office with a big desk, view, typewriter and books to work in. Well, I don’t. Just now sat writing in my bed – because my room is so small I can only fit the chair in front of my desk (barely) if the closet is closed … Continue reading

Now watching: The Hour

The sun is really shining in Hong Kong today, but I’m in bed with a flu. Booored. Luckily, I’ve just discovered a TV-show called “The Hour”. It’s about the BBC and the start-up of a show in the 50s and 60s. Very interesting and with amazing actors; Ben Whishaw, Dominic West (McNulty of “The Wire”) … Continue reading

Bringing the Hacienda to Hong Kong

Later tonight I’m seeing Greg Wilson DJ at Kee Club here in Hong Kong. He used to play at the legendary Hacienda in Manchester back in the 80s and 90s. A great time for music in the industrial city. I’ve read tons of books on Hacienda and the Manc music scene and while living there … Continue reading

Proenza Schouler does it again

My favourite looks from the Proenza Schouler collection that was showed at New York Fashion Week yesterday. Especially a big fan of their big bomber jackets, wicked prints and leather! And I need to get some white clothes. Photos: Style.com See the whole show here
