Explore Avvikk’s ‘TUNDRA’ FW ’15 footwear collection

When I came across Avvikk‘s newest Fall/Winter ’15 collection, I immediately fell in love with the Norwegian brand’s footwear. Founded in 2013, the brand draws their inspiration upon literal and metaphorical mobility. This means in their terms shaking off the bounds of traditional footwear and consistently seeking to create innovative designs. With juxtaposing fabrics, colors, patterns and textures as a result. For Fall/Winter ’15 they present TUNDRA, entering a new dimension free of laces. Despite the fact it’s only their second collection so far, it’s super sleek, streamlined and powerful at the same time. They take a hi-tech approach featuring different fabrics from matt black ‘rubber feel’ leather to glossy printed leather, experimenting with new fastenings of velcro, elastics, neoprene and zippers. Besides runners, boots and platform loafer shapes, this collection also includes accessories in the form of metallic clutches and oversized shoulder bags. For now enjoy their stunning visuals by Jana Gerberding down below, and wait till the collection drops in August.

Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA)

The Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), or, in other terms, the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, is one of my favorite hang outs when I’m visiting Barcelona. The museum offers a wide range on contemporary art and culture and confirms Barcelona’s position as a world art capital as well. Always when I’m there, I feel this creative vibe surrounding me and it feels so good. The architecture is amazing as well. It’s the work of North American artist Richard Meier, designed in my birthyear, 1990, and built between 1991 and 1995. The assemblage of several prisms takes up 14.300 m2 of floor space in total. The center is a cylindrical volume that cuts through all the floors – from the basement to the roof – and organises the exhibition areas along a longitudinal axis over three floors, starting with the ground floor. I just love it how the natural light enters the building. It makes it a serene place to be, just what you need when you’re soaking your mind up with modern art. …

Wearing ÃARK Collective 002 Collection

For those who have been following me for a while, know I’ve collaborated in the past with Melbourne-based watch label AÃRK Collective for an Instagram takeover of 7 days. For those who haven’t, you can take a look at this awesome project here and here. AÃRK now presents their newest collection, 002, which develops the brand’s signature minimalist aesthetic and playful approach to detail. While 001 explored an interaction between color and geometric shapes, 002 draws inspiration from the ideas of time and space. The watches are even named after the physical phenomenon or principle that inspired it: Shell, Eon, Tide & Eclipse. Once I saw their newest collection, I immediately knew I wanted to wear the Shell white watch. A piece which is defined by its playful charm, and pays, in my opinion, a tribute to the classic watch design. The unique patterning case ensures you there’s no two Shells that are the same. Sounds perfect right? Wearing: AÃRK Collective Shell White – Vanilia skirt – H&M top – Nike Air Max 1 Essential …
