stay the same

Such a long hiatus... But here I am, and with a new pattern: Stay the Same. After a long Spring with lots and lots of travelling, meeting wonderful people and places, it's oh so fun to be back!

Now this pattern is my new Summer favorite! Light and easy to wear and just think of all the possible color combinations... Maybe I should cast on for another one... Like today!

interpretations vol 2

I’m so happy to share with you the second collaboration with my dear friend Joji, the most talented and innovative designer and the most amazing lady! Here comes

Again, we chose six themes or words for the collection, with two designs for each theme: our personal interpretation of the word. The words we chose for the second collaboration are Pure, Charm, Focus, Grace, Quiet and Unimaginable. Find more details on the website!
This time I loved the whole process even more (if possible), maybe I knew better how to enjoy the different parts of the journey! I also loved the fact I got to show Joji and her family my landscape, my world. I felt like I could see the everyday landscape with fresh eyes too. 
We couldn't have done this without our wonderful photographer! Jonna, you have an amazing talent to see the magic through your lenses I never thought there was!

Here's the complete look book -
