The Swedish Model – Still getting ready for Autumn…

I would just love a new bag. Like the Fashionable Mama I am, I have loads of bags, but I can never get too many. It’s probably some sort of addiction, I have tried to get rid of it but don’t seem I can.

For the past few weeks I have been using a black slouchie bag from Cynthia Rowley. I bought it in Dublin some 5 years ago or so, in the sale at Brown Thomas. Didn’t think much of it then but I has been quite useful during the past year. It’s a great size. But I think now is the time to move on. Sure it’s great, I can fit lots of stuf in it, make-up bag, wallet, brush, newspaper and even my laptopo if I have too.  Now is the time that it goes back in the box for a few months/maybe a year until I wear it again.

So where will my new favourite bag coem from…

Recently I came across this label called The Swedish Model, TSM. They describe themselves as ”a lifestyle collection of accessories for men and women, which embodies the style and spirit of its founders Carl Hederoth, Charlotta Rosenblad and Boris Bencic”

I love how they have shaped their vision around a set of values which they feel define Swedish-ness:

  • Sweden is beautiful
  • Sweden is fair
  • Sweden is a personal experience

Aren’t these bags extra ordinary!?

Black, Grey or perhaps tan. Watch this space, one of these days!

I need a new Nappy Bag of some sorts…

Our dear Svenskt Tenn Manhattan bag has been used to death and today it completely fell apart. I have been using it since Pixie was a little baby, one of my first Swedish style items since my return to Stockholm and Sweden. It’s time to buy a new bag and I’ll probably buy a different one this time around but I am finding it difficult to pick one.

Antic Cervo

I have a thing about bags, Prada bags. You can’t have too many in my view. Last count I had … no it’s embarrassing to admit.
My most recent purchase was this, Prada Antic Cervo Satchel. It will go very well with my wallet in the same colour / leather finish, and my brown Filippa K suit.
This bag is apparently quite sought after, as you can read in this bag forum.
It’s funny how you get prepared for work. I am getting ready mentally by planning my wardrobe, accessories and, off course, doing some reading/research.
