Levi’s in Paris
These ones are of my dreamy customised Levi’s Trucker jacket, in celebration of 50 years of the style <3
Looking particularly tired seeing as it was the 2nd to last day of fashion month/hell…. lol JK. I so appreciate being able to jet round the world! Just maybe would have rather spent that entire last week in bed :p

From Stockholm to Venice Beach: Celebrating Corduroy Appreciation Day with The Cord & Co.
By Rae Witte
Once considered the poor man’s velvet, corduroy was worn widely by workers, artists, and students throughout America and Europe in the 19th century. Comprised of what looks to be cords laid together, it is soft but also durable and made of the same fabric as velvet, fustian. By the 20th century, corduroy started to shake its reputation for being a signifier of the middle class as it became popularly used in children’s school uniforms, military and sportswear, and later popular among the anti-establishment movement throughout the ‘60s. By the ’80s it returned with a lot of structure before the ‘90s introduced stretch corduroy offering more feminine silhouettes.
But, what do you do when you want to disrupt one of the longest standing sartorial lanes in the fashion industry? Founded in Stockholm in 2016, The Cords & Co is the first premium corduroy brand set out to make their own space in the denim world and be the coziest alternative to denim. Founders and former owners of Happy Socks, Mikael Söderlindh and Viktor Tell, wanted to create pants you wear as easily, frequently and as versatile as jeans, but in history-rich corduroy. “By highlighting its long but little known history, working closely with friends and an extended community in each of our flagship city locations, we’re sharing our story of a fabric everyone has a connection to, yet no other brand has dedicated themselves entirely to” says Omar Varts, CEO.
Committed to making the world re-fall in love with the fabric, the launch could not have come at a better time. Corduroy has become a major trend to watch for this fall with both magazines for men and women like GQ and Vogue offering their spin on how to wear it and where to buy it. When brands like Prada and Marni send it down the runway and fast fashion giants Zara hop on a trend, you know it’s going to be something to get on board with early.
With the August launch, five locations opened internationally – two in Stockholm, one in London, one in Paris, the Los Angeles/Venice location, and a New York store is next. In addition to their flagship stores in style capitals across the world, The Cords & Co are available with 20 retailers internationally and online for both women and men and carry not only primarily corduroy pant, top, and jacket options, but also graphic tees, sweatshirts, and hats.
They already started to work with established creatives like famed disco DJ, DJ Harvey as the face of their debut campaign, and artist Barbara Stauffacher Solomon to paint the mural in their Los Angeles location in Venice. In the future, they are planning a collaboration with Alpha Industries.
And, today, on November 11, The Cords & Co. is celebrating. When written numerically, the date 11/11 appears like the pattern of corduroy, thus it has been named National Corduroy Appreciation Day. For this year’s celebration, The Cords & Co. is giving the first 100 customers at each flagship store the opportunity to bring in old (clean) denim they’d like to get rid of and trade it for a pair of Cords for free. Seems likes it’s the best time to take advantage of the impending temperature drop and cozy up your denim collection with denim’s newest (or oldest) alternative and velvet’s most fun sister – corduroy for all! Snag a pair for yourself here.

Warm and Inviting Danish home with Beautiful Textiles
By firstname.lastname@example.org (My Scandinavian Home)
Photography Eline Engen
What a charming, warm and inviting home, don’t you think? There are so many treasures, but Elin tells me her favourite is the old cabinet where she stores all her vintage textiles before turning them into cushions and clutches.
When it comes to decorating, Elin advises to “stay true to yourself. It’s a cliché but true. Surround yourself with items that mean something to you. Do not buy just to buy. A home is a real home when it reflects the people that live there and when everything is not perfect.” Wise words indeed!
You can pick up Elin’s pretty cushions and clutches over on instagram.
If you’re looking for other items seen in Elin’s home, here’s a quick guide:
Sitting room area: poster to the left from Stilleben and to the right Retro Villa (pretty shop alert!), cushions handmade by Eline, Klong halo candle holder (love this), Scarlet Kimono from Lulu’s Drawer (another ‘love’ from me!), Lampe Gras.
Thank you so much for the kind permission to show the pictures of your home Eline!
On a completely seperate note, I’m having so much fun in Paris for the launch of my Lagom Book in French. Last night HaperCollins France planned a wonderful cocktail party and I met the English to French translator and Aude, the designer behind the pretty front cover, among lots of other inspiring people, what a great evening! Merci beaucoup! The man is arriving this evening and we’re going to spend the weekend here – yaaaaay! Hopefully see you tomorrow at Galeries Lafayette for the book signing and DIY session if you’re in town (4 – 6 pm)!
I hope you’ve got some nice plans?
Have a wonderful couple of days and see you Monday!

“Shorter Days and Waning Light” by Sal Moriarty
By Live Fast Mag
In our latest exclusive editorial, we perform a study on the changing shapes of a lazy afternoon with Camille Orders. Stretching and shifting, lazing about from outdoor sunshine to indoor beams of light patterned by the blinds. Photographed by Sal Moriarty, we see the globetrotting editor of Sweets Magazine in her relaxed and natural state – taking a smoke break in the waning afternoon light, lounging in bed, slipping in and out of her most comfortable pieces of clothing.
This photo set functions as a perfect ode to the days getting shorter, and subsequently getting lazier, serving some much needed inspiration for taking it easy. Take a peek at our favorite selects below and keep up with Camille here.

Trend: Greige Walls
By email@example.com (Blog Milk Shop)
White walls are almost becoming extinct. As the year wears on, more and more of my friends seem to be getting weary of their walls and trying to find a middle ground between the straightforward trend of whites and the color palettes of late, which are filled with pinks, indigos and desaturated (and gorgeous, I might add) greens.
Greige is the perfect example of an in-between. It is not grey but it’s also not beige. That’s why it’s become increasingly popular–and it deserves to be for its diversity and subtleness. Greige is the color that says “I’m grounded, reliable, wholesome but also unexpectedly classy.”. To me, it’s one of the best colors of the year; it matches perfectly with light woods… and let’s be honest, it’s quiet a needed break from whites.
If you, like me, are not quite ready for the bold-color movement, consider this for your end-of-year home refresh.
Niki is in Paris for the launch of the French version of her book Lagom (Le juste équilibre) – if you’re passing Galeries Lafayette between 4 – 6 pm this Saturday, pop in for a signed copy and join in with a fun DIY session! I believe she’s sharing the adventure over on instagram stories too!
