Riots Case 1April 23
Riots is a fashion agency, that was founded in 2011 by Bent Lee and Kristina Pasuna and they work with clients like Stand Black Nude (remember this awesome leather jacket?) and Closed. They are two of the coolest persons I know and I'm happy they are now introducing a new concept - a pop up retail space for dedicated consumers towards the brands that Riots carries in their agency. The result - Riots Case 1. Case 1 will showcase a curated selection of both mens and women’s wear and interior design. For the opening, they introduce a new designed retail interior concept, done in close collaboration with the Danish furniture carpenter Jacob Jeppesen. Case 1 is located in the heart of Copenhagen and will be open for only 12 days over 4 weeks. So make sure you stop by; Case 1, Store Kongensgade 59E, 2nd Backyard and check out brands like ALW, BLS Hafnia, Closed, Falke, Riots Resort, Stand Black Nude, Excel Interior and Normann Copenhagen, plus a small collection of bags developed by Støy Munkholm in collaboration with Harris Tweed - this will only be available at Case 1. Opening hours are Wednesday-Thursday 12-18., Friday 12-19 and Saturday 10-15.
First day is tomorrow Friday 23rd so pop by the pop up during your weekend.
Devoted To DressesApril 22
I wear a dress almost every day. It’s just so easy to throw one on in the morning and jet out the door in a pair of sneakers and a coat. I found this midi length at & Other Stories and I’ve layered it with a lightweight flowy luxe robe from Bruuns Bazaar in midnight blue. As the mild temperatures takes over, these light coats are easy breezy and gives a relaxed look when paired with a low-key dress and a pair of sneakers.
Avène Eau ThermaleApril 22
My skin is super sensitive and sometimes I give it a break from all the products I normally use and give it a treat with something that I know will soothe and heal it. For that Avène is perfect. It’s a unique French brand that you can shop at the pharmacy and each product contains the Avène Themal Spring Water that is soothing, anti-irritating and low in minerals. The products are formulated for the most sensitive or intolerant skin and these are some of the key products for a calmer and hydrated skin. The Water Spray is perfect as a soothing action after sun, to set your makeup or to give skin a boost of moisture when travelling. For cleansing and toning I go for the Micellar Lotion and I then apply the Skin Recovery Cream. For the rest of the body - the Cold Cream - a nourishing body lotion that sink in quickly and does not grease, but still leaves skin super soft. Most important these days is UV protection - and Avéne has the perfect one - SPF 50, water resistant and it comes in a small tube that fits even the smallest clutch. You can shop Avène on you local pharmacy - OR - you can win all of these amazing products right here on Nouvelle. All you have to do is find this picture on Facebook, like Nouvelle and leave a winning comment - and maybe you will be the lucky one. Competition ends on Friday May 1st.
Cos x SnarkitectureApril 20
I have been to Milan a million times, but never for Salone del Mobile, but I really really want to go. Instagram is overflowing with amazing images - this one included. Cos has collaborated with New York- based studio Snarkitecture to create an installation at this year’s Salone del Mobile. It reflects the brand’s core DNA with clean lines, the ambiguity of transparency and the transformation of the everyday into something extraordinary - an immersive translucent cave. The very essence of the Cos aesthetics. I could live in this minimal cave.
