Bits And Bobs #55

Chambray Shirt by American Apparel, Secondhand Cardigan, Coat & Gloves by ASOS, Scarf by Acne, Trousers by Topman

Winter has totally arrived in Zurich. The temperature is below zero and the whole city is covered in snow. So it is time again to wear as many layers as possible. I always wear a t-shirt underneath my shirt, which gives me that extra layer, that keeps me warm no matter what. Just make sure it doesn't show through the shirt, especially if you are wearing thin white ones. I decided to leave the garment overview out from now on because it saves a lot of time for me which means more outfit entries in the future for you, sounds good?

Someday At Christmas

Someday At Christmas by Stevie Wonder

Merry merry christmas to all of you and I hope you spent some relaxing time with people you care most about. I took one week off myself from blogging as you have probably noticed but I am promising to pick up the pace again in the following days.

Julia Saner

I already mentioned her in an entry about a year ago after she won the Elite Model Look International 2009 and after impressing me with that editorial shoot in Swiss fashion magazine Annabelle. Nowadays it seems that she is having a really busy schedule and is being booked for runway shows and fashion shoots everywhere. She appeared on the runway for every important designer in Milan and Paris last season including Chanel, Fendi, Dior, Givenchy, CĂ©line and many more. Rumor has it Anna Wintour was the one who discovered and mentioned her to Lagerfeld and also that she is also going to be in a fashion spread shot by Mario Testino for the Februrary issue of Vogue US. She also currently appears in a lot of Pre-Fall 2011 lookbooks like in Thakoon's which is pictured below. I am so glad for her and we will certainly see a lot more of her in the future. Go Julia!

Sophie van der Perre

While I was looking for art schools in other countries because I might wanna do an exchange year or semester, I came across the photos of Sophie van der Perre and was captured immediately by the intimacy and atmosphere of her photographs. She is studying at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. She is only 22 and has had several exhibitions so far and did an internship with Ryan McGinley, one of my favourite photographers. Check out the photos on her website and Flickr (old account).

Not Many Kingdoms Left

Pogobooks is making several little art books and zines with different photographers from everywhere. I like the charm of zines because it somehow creates a very intimate feel when I look at them since it has got this self-made and personal touch. Of the few I ordered, Not Many Kingdoms Left by Jeff Luker is my favourite. I have yet to order the one by Tamara Lichtenstein though. I rather buy these kind of books or zines at the moment instead of big photo books and I also started doing my own little zines just for me and my friends. At least for now. It is so nice to have your photographs printed and the possibility to show them anyone anywhere without a computer.

H&M Spring 2011 Women

H&M again! I know there was a lot of coverage about H&M lately on my blog, but immediately after the launch of Lanvin pour H&M, they already had the collection for Spring 2011 ready at the showroom. I went there again and picked my favorites and you might notice compared to previous seasons that I picked a lot more. I especially liked the silk shirt and the leggings with suede patches. If you want to know when any of these items pictured below hit stores, let me know in the comments and I will try to find out which week.

Absolut Fashion Hunter

I was wandering around the streets of Zurich, Bern and Basel the last couple of weeks as an Absolut Fashion Hunter for Absolut Vodka. They made me and several others (like Lisa and Marisa) go capture stylish people around town to showcase them on a screen at the Absolut Vodka lounge at Blickfang Zurich. Here are some of my photographs.
