One of my favorite quotes is by Yves Saint Laurent and I think it is spot on: “Style is everything, fashion is nothing”. Get inspired by fashion and trends but don’t let them dictate your personal style. Wear what makes you happy and comfortable and don’t care about what people think about it.
Personally I prefer styling where there is a common thread, that have matching pieces and of course colors are vital.
I draw inspiration in a lot of different ways and places. I enjoy people watching when I am at cafés and bars.
Music, theater, movies and art are big sources of inspiration for me. I especially love the 1950s-1980s. My taste is broad. Its the pieces and the ways of putting items together that makes it special.
Why I picked this blazer to style
When I saw this blazer in a secondhand store the colors were just screaming at me. It’s from the 80s and made of 100% Thai silk. And it is of the absolute finest quality.
I love wearing unique pieces. I’m like a kid in a candy store when I find them. Often it’s like finding a needle in a haystack. I find that the best way to find unique pieces is to shop secondhand and vintage. You can for sure find me early mornings in some of the flea markets in Copenhagen. I love the lower prices compared to retail and that shopping second hand is better for the environment.
