Today, I am happy to introduce you to two amazing brands that I discovered few weeks ago- Seam and Monsieur Mishiba. What I like about both of them is the incredible craftsmanship that breaths out of every piece, high quality materials and the originality. And for these reasons I decided to feature them. I think it is important to support local artists so I decided to start presenting some of those that I really like. And let’s not forget about my all time favorite Pascale Cornu whose summer collection I featured few weeks ago (see here).
What I love about this backpack from Mr. Mishiba is that you can wear it in different ways- as a backpack or handbag. It is large enough to house my laptop and it can hold quite a lot of weight as it is made of thick cotton canvas and calfskin leather. The powder pink vest and skirt from Seam are totally different story. They are delicate and sweet. With this allure of femininity and romantism you can’t help but feel like a character from Little Women. Or at least that is how I imagine they would dress.

Today, I decided to style my favorite winter boots with a skirt from Blonde Monsters and a puffer vest. At first I was not very sure about this combination as it is quite different from what I would normally wear. But fashion is about challenging yourself and being brave so I gave it a try…I think that the result is très après ski.
In fact, this outfit makes me think of the Swiss mountains and its pretty wooden chalets, loads of snow, steaming hot chocolate, snow boots and the Bernese Mountain Dogs. It reminds me the times when I used to spend my winter holidays with my parents. We would go for walks with my sister and build a snowman. His eyes were two charcoals, nose was made by inserting a carrot and his hat was an old, broken cooking pot.
I am really looking forward to winter this year. I plan to spend a lot of time outside- sledging, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and playing in the snow. This year I will try to enjoy the winter season. I noticed that I wish for things to end without enjoying them while they last (especially cold winter). So this is my resolution- I will “appreciate and be aware”of what is happening right now and right here.
Happy weekend, everyone!
