There's so much I want to say about my lovely friend Hedvig, who's Norwegian. I can't believe we only met last February, in the twilight of the last night of London Fashion Week. I will say this, tho: her skin is porcelain, she always looks impeccable, and while I'm sure she's well groomed, she is so low maintenance as a friend. Just mellow, easy going.
Case in point: Covent Garden, last Thursday. We were meeting @ a new fab branch of Le Pain Quotidien (great space upstairs, especially when it's too cold for Ella's outside). Sod's law, the Picadilly line was closed, and I had to switch a few trains. Texted her when it surfaced and her quick reply was 'don't stress'. So I didn't. Friends like that are, in my book, a treasure.
I love Hedvig's style and, like another great friend, Natayla of Treasures of a Ladybug, each time we meet I photograph her as part of our goodbye ritual. Talk about style icons! Both women throw together original outfits with such ease, using the same item in different ways.
Hedvig's boots are new ones from Acne (she'd just come back from Oslo), who also made the gorgeous putty coloured, fine cashmere/silk jumper. Her peachy jacket, which added some warmth to a very cold, grey day, looks expensive but it's H&M.
As for the rest? In her own words: "The jeans I'm wearing are a swedish brand called Cheap Monday, very cheap jeans, their principle is to sell jeans at the lowest price possible, my bag is my new "baby" from Longchamp, it took a while before I received it in my post but it was worth the waiting."
