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.
It can be hard getting out of bed in the beginning of the week, I know. Especially during dark times like these. Therefore I will tell you all about what inspires me now, what I watch and read this week to get inspired af. First up is one of the best things I have seen in a while:
A modern fairy tale

Last week our all time favorite jewelry brand got a new home.
After 6 months of renovation (and a pandemic that came in between), Jacob Skragge and Fredrik Nathorst, finally made a dream to reality.
With their very first own store, jewellery brand All Blues invites their customers to a bold yet very minimal experience – which I would say is more or less the full All Blues identity. Me and Fanny visited the store (very safe and with distance) last week and I quote Fanny “I don’t think you could have found any better location even if you tried”.
With that said, it is located in the very heart of Stockholm.
“We’ve spoken a lot about choreography and movement while planning the store; how we could create an experience beyond shopping and have visitors interact with the space. The initial process was very much text based and non-visual, focusing on philosophy rather than aesthetics”
Says Fredrik Nathorst, Creative Director and Co-founder of the brand.
With that said you really understand the entire contexture of the space. It is located in a 19th century building with 4,7 metres in ceiling height, enormous windows and original walls in usable condition (unveiled after ripping off layers of added colour). The heart of the store is a 1,3 ton ‘house’ made entirely out of glass, stands out as a contemporary and upscaled way of storing jewellery.
The architect behind the store is Jack Dalla Santa, also a childhood friend to the team, which says the glass house may be seen as too large in terms of its function as display, but it’s perfect in proportion to the spatial volume of the room.
The store is open for business and located at Birger Jarlsgatan 2, Stockholm.
At this very hour, the new H&M Concious Exclusive collection is launched online. What is very unique with this autumns edition is that every piece in the collection is made from waste. Pretty cool right?
We had a chat with H&M’s Creative Advisor Ann-Sofie Johansson to talk about the process behind the collection, read the full article here. If you don’t have time for that, here is a short cut: 29 pieces, including a men’s collection (that is new for this year!) and two totally new fabrics are making their H&M debut: Hemp Biofibre™, which is made from oilseed hemp crop waste, and Naia™ Renew; a cellulosic fibre sourced from circular content.
The AW20 collection also includes fabrics made from post-consumer carpet fibre, post-industrial plastic packaging and PET bottles. My favorite piece are these boots that are made in vegan leather which the fabric is created from waste from wine production.
See & shop all the old PET bottles over at H&M here.

Have you, like me, missed the amazing seven-episode mini-series made by Gucci on YouTube?? Well, I am here to save you. And also tell you all about it so you just have to watch it.
Well, here is a short recap: 5th of November Gucci announced the new collection entitled OUVERTURE of Something that Never Ended, which was presented by Creative Director Alessandro Michele through a seven-episode mini-series on YouTube during GucciFest. What is a GucciFest you might ask? That was an innovative digital film & fashion festival that was held from the 16th of November to the 22nd, totally in honor to launch the new collection and the mini serie – very pandemic approved, and yet as cool. Starring Billie Eilish and Achille Bonito Oliva, among other cool cats and kittens.
