Alek Wek by Alexander Saladrigas for Vogue Ukraine, January 2018
Ceramic Lamps by Carmen D’Apollonio
Serpentine Sofa by Vladimir Kagan
I would be lying if I said that the darkness hasn’t been affecting my mood. I’ve been trying to compensate my not so focused mind with sharp outfits; blazers and heels. I’ve been drawing inspiration from Julie Pelipas, whose work for Vogue Ukraine has made the magazine one of the best Vogues, and the January issue is not an exception. Also Julie herself is very inspiring woman and definitely worth following.
At home I still need comfort and soft shapes. My latest addiction is Carmen D’Apollonio’s ceramic works and I also wouldn’t mind having the Serpentine Sofa by Vladimir Kagan.
I’ve been looking for an oversize blazer quite a while, until I realized I have a closet full of my boyfriend’s ones. Perfect for layering on chilly days.
Maison Martin Margiela SS09
It’s time to wrap up 2017 and welcome 2018. I’ll rather start the new year fresh and rested, so tonight’s plans doesn’t include late partying or disco outfits. I would only wear sequins if they were from Margiela.
Speaking of, in March 2018 Palais Galleria in Paris will host an exhibition dedicated to Martin Margiela. After seeing the Hermes Years exhibition in Antwerp, I can’t wait for this one!

5 Sara Flynn at Loewe Prize
The expected news broke yesterday that Phoebe Philo is exiting Céline, and to be honest, I don’t think she will return. We can only cherish the archives that we have from nearly a decade, which in their timelessness will be relevant for many years to come.
Besides Céline, this December I’ve been inspired by the old grandpas of Paris and their way of dressing up and layering. Masculine clothes have always been my weak spot, the men’s Prada coat above with contrast top stitching would be quite a treasure.
I’m also searching for a perfect vase to cheer up our tiny apartment, something sculptural such as the ones designed by Sara Flynn.
Lately I’ve been unconsciously avoiding my laptop and spent my free time with books and magazines. The recent issue of Unconditional magazine was one of the most beautiful works I’ve seen for a while.
Here is a proof that I’m living in these Chanel pants. I’m trying to build a wardrobe with pieces like these, clothes that I’m truly attached to and that I see myself wearing even after 10 years. Like the coat above, I bought it years ago and I’ll keep wearing it many years to come.

Stella McCartney AW2017
Outfit dreaming; head to toe camel look and layering earrings. That Stella’s one piece would be a monday morning saviour.
Stella McCartney for Chloé
A while back I visited Maison Chloé for their Guy Bourdin exhibition, which I have to say was really bad. And don’t take me wrong, I adore Guy Bourdin and Chloé used to be one of my favourite brands, it is just wrong to claim that they have something in common. However, I’m always excited to see some archive pieces. Above the iconic horse dresses from the era when Stella McCartney was the creative director.
