STOCKHOLM WITH CARIN WESTERAugust 28, 2012
Last week we winged it over land and sea to touch down in Stockholm and meet some of our favourite local bloggers over canapés and cocktails and a face to face meeting with Carin Wester (enchanté!).
We’d heard stories about the city’s gorgeousness and cleanliness, about the innate cool and near-obscene attractiveness of its people, and we’d like to confirm that all of them were true. We met some of the nicest girls and boys while we were there, hobnobbing over smoked salmon blinis and trying to sneak Carin’s entire new season collection into our bags on the way out.
If you’re living in Stockholm, or if you get the chance to visit, take some time while you’re there and visit our store. Maybe we’re biased, but we think it’s one of the best shops in the world. Built into an old cinema and extravagantly decked out with vintage accents and grand features, it had us all in raptures (nothing to do with the gin and mint cocktails, we swear!). Balconied changing rooms? Check. Chandeliers? Check check. Minimalist 1950s furniture? Check, check and check again.
So, for being so welcoming, pretty and generally brilliant, Stockholm, we salute you!
