Who bought The Scream?

The famous painting by Norwegian impressionist Edvard Munch got sold for a record price of 107 million US dollar this morning HK time (at 8 pm. New York time) – the most expensive painting ever sold at an auction. I got up early and streamed it live from Sotheby’s.com – and it was super exciting!! … Continue reading

Contrasts

Went to the little fisherman’s village Tai O today. Looked for the pink dolphins, but didn’t see them. No wonder, with the crazy boat drivers, shouting and speeding. They must be stressed out! Did however see cows. And plenty of fish. Smell them I did, too. On the boat back from Mui Wo afterwards the … Continue reading

Girls

It’s so refreshing to see a TV-series with real, (un?)cool girls.  “Girls” is a comedy about 20-something girls in New York, living the dream one mistake at a time. Aka not airbrushed like “Sex and the City”. Hilarious! About weird relationships, unpaid internships (we have all been there!), guys that aren’t good for you and … Continue reading

What mood are you in?

I love looking at designer’s mood boards, seeing how they got from one idea to the other. It really gives you interesting insight into the design process and their vision. When I was studying fashion, making mood boards was a big part of it. I remember the science dudes who studied at the same campus … Continue reading

Hong Kong – Asia’s new art capital?

Today I wanted to share an article I did on the art scene in Hong Kong recently for Norwegian art magazine KUNSTforum. It’s in Norwegian – so for my Scandinavian readers at this point. But no worries, Art HK is coming up in May, the world’s biggest art fair, and I will be covering it … Continue reading

“Blunderbuss” is out!

So we all know I love Jack White. I’ve been on about how I discovered the White Stripes before. Yesterday his first solo album, “Blunderbuss”, came out. I still haven’t heard the whole thing, only the two first singles, but like what I’ve heard so far. However, I’m not sure if it matches up to … Continue reading

The African Portraitist

I checked out agnes b. Librarire Galerie the other day. As you might know, agnes b. is originally a French clothing brand, but has developed into a lifestyle brand, with their own cafès and galleries. Especially here in Asia it seems to be very big. The gallery, which is situated in Wan Chai, has a … Continue reading

Coachella

It’s rumoured to have the most beautiful crowd of all the festivals, and looking at the photos from Coachella I would totally agree with that. So many cool outfits! My friend who was there last week also confirmed this. What I like is that people don’t follow all the rules. What you would see at … Continue reading

Club Monaco launch

As I mentioned last week, streetstyle photographer Tommy Ton was in Hong Kong to launch his design collaboration with Club Monaco. I’m saving the interview & photos with him for an article, but also did some shots of the stylish people there, which I’m sharing with you! Brogues & paisley is obviously the deal right … Continue reading
