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.

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.

Sofa at Prada
Two from the weekend. I visited Fondation Louis Vuitton’s Etre Moderne – MoMa à Paris exhibition, which grew my obsession towards Alexander Calder’s works. I also stopped by Prada store, which grew my obsession towards green.
Dreamy lounge set by Pierre Jeanneret, spotted at a small gallery in Saint Germain. I need to start writing down the gallery names, and maybe do a small guide?

Eero Saarinen Shearling Womb Chair for Knoll
Sunday dreaming about filling our home with furniture bought from small galleries and matching them with art. Above ‘La Déclive’ designed by Pierre Paulin.
You know the pink mirror that everyone always takes mirror pictures with at Pigalle Hotel in Paris? As much as I admire Ettore Sottsass’ work, I wasn’t too big fan of it. Until now, when I came across to this photo above. Would be a perfect contrast in the old Paris apartments.
Also I’m very excited for the approaching weekend. There will be an Ettore Sottsass exhibition at Gallery Downtown in Paris starting on Friday and Fiac, a contemporary art fair, starting tomorrow.

Maison Martin Margiela duvet coat, 1999
I started the october moodboard with very edgy and cold shapes but over the weekend it transformed to something completely different. How fast the mind is influenced. In the resent Mastermind magazine there is a great chapter about anonymity including editorial with Margiela archive pieces and an article about the anonymous man himself. The darker the mornings are getting, the more I’m interested in the idea of fast and functional, straight out of bed -wardrobe and -beauty routines, being offline and taking the focus off from myself.
Marble mix by Mathieu Lehanneur
Ad Magazine is holding an interior exhibition AD Intérieurs at Monnaie de Paris until 20th of September. Can’t say I liked everything but the building itself is already gorgeus which makes it worth to visit.
