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 is 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.
Except being my partner in crime when it comes to sipping margaritas and singing karaoke, Marcus Söder is known for being one of the most prestigious stylists of this decade in Sweden. From 2007-2017 Marcus was the fashion director of Bon Magazine, but also at the same time worked with his commercial clients including Jil Sander, Acne Studios, H&M, Gap, Arket, Filippa K, Tiger of Sweden, Aquascutum, and Gant.
By that time his team provided styling services for editorial and commercial clients within the fashion industry. But in 2015 he co-founded CFA PROJECTS with his wife and art director Catt Söder. A creative agency based in Stockholm, but with the world as a market place. With a never ending focus on creating and providing fashion and art direction for editorial and commercial clients, but also brand communication for fashion, retail and lifestyle. Always with a contemporary approach and sustainability in mind. Today Marcus runs CFA as a visual director together with his right hand, art director Jacob Landahl.
We asked Marcus to share his wishlist for Christmas with us.
Me and my wife Catt dreaming of moving to a new space, uptown in Stockholm and this wooden table designed by Max Lamb would be our functional hero. At three meters in length and made from solid ash, it is destined to be a centrepiece for all our Mexican dinner parties. *If only Santa could here me out here

Jenny Holzer Truisms Stamp Set
I love this. Vintage set of stams produced in 1991. It’s a complete set of six stamps and ink pad, with whom you can make your own gifting, tees – or what about sneakers!! Yes I am a huge sucker for sneakers.

I love this bag. Its made of completely waterproof material, the bag adjusts it’s size by rolling the top according to the capicity within and has a valve to drain water and air. Perfect for hiking stormy mountains or when visiting wavy beaches. Read more about it, or shop it here.
