I have been wanting to share some pictures of the QUILT & STRIPES project that I worked on all of 2013 - A collaboration between Mads Norgaard and I, Handmade by the sweetest production ladies at Place Du Bleu in Copehagen.
We embarked on the project in early spring '13 and this is the result! The quilts have been made out of jersey remnants from Norgaards iconic 101 striped T-shirt, originally designed by Jorgen Norgaard in '67.
The pattern is made out of a repeated form that occurs as a remnant in the production of the T-shirts. All quilts have been laid op by hand, carefully composed in colors and stripes and filled with organic wadding with Oko-tex 100 cotton on the back.
A happy saturday to all you sweet ones. It's super cold in Copenhagen for the moment and might be the perfect time for being tucked in one of these, actually :) xo l.u.

Happy new year from Esalen Institute - A memory from a visit back in 2011 where we spend a couple of days up the coast in California at Esalen Institute. Recharging, reading, star gazing, whale watching and eating the most delishious (and treasured) whole foods from Esalen's own gardens, grown right above the Pacific Ocean.
Here's a note to all of you sweet readers - Thank you so much for stopping by, for your sweet mentions , comments and support! I hope you all get a beaming joyful 2014 PACKED with all kinds of aflluence and magic! xo l.u

Antica Locanda Via Solferino. This is where you must sleep. Think closets with tapestry inside. As big and solid as you can sit in there and have your morning tea.
Glitter gelato pastels and knit. All together. Missoni teaser SS14.

Porselli - next to La Scala. The place where Maria Callas were born. Imagine Carmen. Then rose petals.
