So ladies (and gents!), say hello to a recent collaboration of mine, between me and GANT Rugger! I’m very pleased to be a part of this as I’ve always been a fan of the brand and it suits my personal style. I’ve chosen some of my favorite pieces for fall (like this beautiful blazer) and styled them with pieces from my own wardrobe, above is one of the pictures from the campaign.

This is what Christopher Bastin, GANT’s Creative Director has to say (thank you for your very sweet words!):

Columbine Smille is one of those girls that has it all. She possesses such a natural beauty and has a great personality. Her finely tuned sense of style and the way she does things her own way has proven to be quite the recipe for becoming an entrepreneur, which makes her even cooler. It was obvious Columbine would be the first we reached out to for the #girlsingantrugger story. She loves the stuff, and we love her. The way she put together Gant Rugger with her personal wardrobe pieces turned out exactly the way we expected it – absolutely brilliant.”

I början av sommaren fick jag förfrågan om att vara delaktig i ett samarbete tillsammans med GANT Rugger och så här ser resultatet ut! Eftersom jag är ett fan av GANT Rugger sedan tidigare var det inte speciellt svårt att välja ut favoriter från höstens kollektion. I en bildserie tagen av Tobias Lundqvist visar jag hur jag helst bär upp dem, tillsammans med plagg från min egna garderob. Ovan ser ni en utav bilderna! Älskar den där rutiga kavajen.

Så här säger Christopher Bastin, GANTs Creative Director om samarbetet (STORT tack för så fina ord!):

Columbine Smille är för mig en stilikon som har allt. Hon besitter en naturlig skönhet och har en stor personlighet. Hennes skarpa sinne för mode, hennes känsla för stil och hennes sätt att gå sin egen väg har visat sig vara ett starkt recept för att bli företagare och nå framgång, vilket gör henne ännu coolare. Det var självklart för mig att samarbeta med Columbine i kampanjen #Girlsingantrugger. Hon älskar redan våra plagg, och vi älskar henne. Hur hon lyckats kombinera Gant Rugger med plagg ur sin personliga garderob blev precis som vi förväntade oss, fullkomligt lysande.”

Make-up wise there where few surprises at London Fashion Week, the no-make-up trend with a 90’s twist was big here too.

Missoni followed the stream this season and did as all of the big names – aimed for the seventies. While the others took inspiration from the fashion, Missoni Fall 2015 really reminded us of the interior colors and the retro furniture. The colors looked like they were taken straight from a sofa in a retro […]
