Must see!

WOW, the Louis Vuitton exhibition that is currently on view at The American Stock Exchange until Jan 7th is absolutely breathtaking. Each room has been magically transformed to take its visitors on a journey. Travel by train, car, and airplane. It was amazing to see the craftsmanship behind of some of Louis Vuitton's first 1800's luxury trunks, as well as the inventions of today's handbags and fashion. The exhibition is free and open to the public so if you're in NYC make sure you reserve your ticket online and GO! x

As I've told you, my friend Rujie and I are teaming up to create some new work together.

We met at art school when we studied at SVA. While her work is often filled with color and edge, my images are quieter with a desaturated color palette. Our homelands; China & Sweden are huge inspirations in both of our photography. We had our first shoot this Friday in the freezing cold and I love how well our styles mix up. Stay tuned!

Lately, life has been more stressful than usual, so my sister invited me for a weekend getaway to Burlington. It is only a 50-minute flight away from NYC and it actually reminds me a lot of Sweden. It is a great town to recharge and de-stress; tons of locally produced food, beautiful nature, and clear air. We relaxed by the water, went chocolate tasting, ate all the foods we craved, drank hot ciders, looked around in cute shops and just enjoyed our sister time. ​

Snaps from my morning walk.

Now I'm sitting here in my sassy flower shoes pumped over my upcoming collaboration with my photography friend Ruije. I have taken care of some logistics today and tomorrow we are meeting again to go location scouting for our next shoot.

Stay tuned! Z

November,

There is something about the naked trees, gloomy skies, and chilly winds, blowing straight through my chest, into my heart. Every year it awakens some kind of romanticised nostalgia in me, of how I experienced winters in the north as a child. Winds so rough they toughen your skin, nights so clear you swear you've never experienced anything like it before. It's a complicated love story that I fall back into every year. November; I love you, I love you not. BUT I DO!

LET'S CREATE ART 💋 Winter brings me so much inspiration.

Today is the day that the feeling I've been carrying in my chest, the heaviness I've felt in the air, unfortunately, got realized.

We had just grabbed a coffee around the corner from our home when police cars came rushing down the street in such a way that it sent chills down my spine. We see police cars here every day, but today was different. Soon sirens came in from every direction, and above our heads, helicopters circled as if they were looking for someone. We could tell that they were all driving towards the direction of our home. It filled me with so much fear. We decided to walk uptown until we knew more about what was going on.

Now I feel saddened and numb over the news that innocent lives were taken in such an evil way. My cheeks are burning. We walk that street on a daily basis, and it makes me feel empty inside knowing that it could have been me or someone I love.

Today I'm extra proud 🌟

Joel is releasing his second EP with Superordinate Music. When we met almost ten years ago, I remember him talking about his dream of becoming a musician. Now, nearly a decade later he is doing what he loves. Our creative work and spirit are bringing us together, and I'm looking forward to continuing this journey with him.

So this year Halloween Weekend has been strange. Halloween is usually the most exciting time, my friends and I always have big plans, and the costumes are decided months before. This year my friends and I are not excited to do anything, everyone just wants to stay inside.

Joel and I were talking about it yesterday, and it is not only us, but the whole city also seems to be in standby mode. After everything that is happening politically, environmentally and the tragedies we keep reading about in the world this year, it is maybe not a coincident that it has left us with a lingering feeling of uneasiness.

With that said, we have tried to make the best of it, by appreciating our neighborhood spots, checking out Halloween decorations and of course watching the new season of "Stranger Things" 😃. Today we are invited to a Halloween brunch at my sister's.

What did you guys do for Halloween?

Look at this treasure I found in a secondhand store in Tribeca! It's signed and framed, a polaroid transfer on aquarelle paper.

I love it because it makes me think back on myself as a young girl, dreaming about the big city. I grew up in a small town in Northern Sweden, in tune with nature, -always on the go- running around, (very much in my head) -dancing- chasing dreams. I was two years old when my oldest sister moved to the US, followed by my other big sister years later. I remember the special times when they would come home to visit us, the contrast between Sweden and the US was significant back in the 90's. New tech things would first hit the American market, the fashion was always hipper in the states, and I would call my sis to ask about the latest trends so that I could stay on top of my game. I was six years old when I flew over the Atlantic for the first time. I traveled alone, with some guided help. When I landed in NYC my oldest sister, Angelica was waiting for me. To this day, I can still recall smells that bring me back to the first day I walked the streets of New York.

Although it was surreal and fun city to explore as a kid, It wasn't until I turned 15 that I started dreaming about moving here. My best friend and I decided to spend the summer of 2006 in NYC, and it changed my life. Suddenly dreams didn't seem so distant anymore as if they existed right above my head in a parallel world, so close that I could grab them and decide to make them my future. Imagine being 15, traveling directly from the woods and getting thrown into celebrity parties, Limousines, champagne and nights in the Hamptons. It was like a slap in the face wake up call for me.

7 years later in this city, and I haven't stopped dreaming ❤
