To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
A couple of weeks ago I met up with Tina Lundin by accident and as always – we talked much longer than we had time for. As you probably know by now, we have given a re-birth to Hobnob TV with the new concept: closet tours (watch here). And in the end of that conversation, after we went thorough all our common favorite Old Céline-pieces. I asked Tina if she wanted a visit from us.
However, Tina said yes and she also said that we had to ask her über cool friend Lien Ngo. I surfed into her Instagram and totally understood why Tina said so.
Thanks to Tina I know have a new Instagram friend (and crush). I think Lien is really really cool. I think her style is a mix of Tokyo, Paris and Gothenburg. If you never been to Gothenburg, Imagine it as the Swedish Amsterdam. A little less uptight than Stockholm, very casual but still cool. Tokyo and Paris I take for granted that you know. Scroll down and you’ll see what I mean (or maybe not). I am sure you will enjoy it either way.

Monday calls for big cups of coffee. I’m hanging out at one of my favorite cafés, Viktors Kaffe. Gothenburg is such a cozy city during fall but it sure gets cold fast! Layering is key to keep warm and a pair of rubber boots are essential!

Why should expressing yourself be limited to a certain gender. Art is genderless, music is genderless, we don’t go to a restaurant to choose from a female and a male menu so why does the majority of fashion brands have to have two different collections for us to choose from? Lots of my favorite pieces are from menswear, like this Prada jacket.

Missing my beloved Japan a lot these days or just traveling in general. During my trips I always look for new brands, new styles and ways to create and reinvent myself. These trousers are one of my all time favorite finds from Tokyo. Not only do they make me feel fabulous and confident but they also carry a lot of great memories from that amazing trip. My closet is like an album of memories taken from different times in my life.

Speaking of the search for new brands.
This coat is from XV Atelier, a brand from Borås. It’s beautifully crafted and I love the silhouette. The fact that’s it’s made of deadstock fabric makes it even better.

Dressed to the nines and nowhere to go? Naw, not me. My motto is to turn my everyday into whatever my mood’s up for and if that is a full-on run-way look while enjoying my usual coffee and croissant at the local coffee spot, then that’s what I’ll wear.
