Fashion from recycled clothes - Arfur (Iceland)

I was struck by these pics...indeed...I think they are so beautiful...the clothes are by Aftur, an Icelandic brand  established in 1999 which makes fashion from recycled clothing.
Aftur operates in Reykjavik, Iceland and maybe this is one of the many reasons why I love it sooo much.

Fish skin and Iceland

I am not a big fan of leather... but I was really struck by the beautiful objects - made of salmon, cod, wolffish skins-  I saw in Iceland over the past week end... there are many artisans over there who can work fish skin making bags, shoes, bracelets, almost everything you can think of.
Huld is a nice brand..but surfing on the iternet I have realized there are many other brands who do amazing things out of fish skins...
So, let s go fishing (or maybe shopping - which is much easier :)

LABE - wollen handmade necklaces

I just love the winter collection of these necklaces...handmade, simple, soft and super light.
The brand is LABE, the person behind the brand is Francesca Belloni. I met her at a Sunday market in Bologna and obviously bought two of them.

RosenbergCph - 100% organic & Danish

After coming across the latest prints and items from Denmark-based RosenbergCph, I was smitten. Exploring their entire catalog of bed linens, pillows, and bags, you’ll see beautiful patterns that are printed onto 100% organically grown cotton and made locally in Denmark..yes, I do have a weakness for Denmark

Copehagen cycles chic - ever thought how fashionable cycling can be?


Copenhagen is the most bike friendly I know about in Europe. Everyone- and I do mean everyone- goes by bike here. So no wonder someone thought of making a blog collecting beautiful pics of people going by bike.
The blog is called Copenhagen Cycle Chic. It's fab! I read it on a daily basis since I discovered it marvelling at impossibly chic ladies riding bikes and looking amazing. Many in high heels....
Anyway if you want to marvel at impossibly chic people riding bikes go have a look- it's great.

THE LOCALS- Fashion in Copenhagen

I love which is a street style blog portraying the fashion on the streets of Copenhagen and the rest of the world - captured by Søren Jepsen, former photographer and co-creator of Copenhagen Streetstyle.
Maybe I should do the same in Bologna...well....I am not sure....
