Nordic Entry In My Wish-List

I'm usually sceptical when I hear of collaborations between 'celebrities' and fashion brands or capsule collections launched by actors/models because I'm of the opinion that it is not enough to have great sense of style or love for fashion to design clothes. Having said that, there are of course some exceptions. The first that springs to my mind is the beautiful Sofia Coppola and Louis Vuitton bag (possibly one of the few LV bags I put my eyes on). And I think that today I've found another 'exception' for my never-ending wish-list. 

I was very curious to see the new fashion adventure of Elin Kling of Style by Kling because I'm a fan of her blog in which she presents her chic and sleek looks. And I was not disappointed. Nowhere is actually designed by the very talented Nhu Duong  and, as recently reported by Vogue US, it "offers up the type of effortless wardrobe basics with a chic, polished edge offers up the type of effortless wardrobe basics with a chic, polished edge". Currently available on Nelly.com, as I have a soft spot for chic basics, I would love to offer a comfortable place in my wardrobe to the purple Nereus jumper, the Dike trousers, the black Caligo dress and the navy Nike jumper. There is plenty of room for these Nowhere pieces...

  2. I do agree with you 100% on your skeptical attitude about models and celebrities turning fashion designers, this might be the only exception to the rule.

  3. I had no idea that she was doing a capsule collection, and you are right- effortless chic!

    And yes... I am definitely always so skeptical about celebrities and collaborations (Kardashians?!) ;)

    Wish you a lovely week!

  5. I do agree with you just loving fashion and having an eye for it does not mean you are a creator as such - i also totally agree with you on the LV Coppola - and you know what i agree with you on this too - the pieces are easy and yet have an edge - great post x
