LifeStyle Mix February_1

February was a short month that I won’t miss all that much, for I long to Spring and with every single day that brought more daylight I looked forward to the new season, planning all adventures that await me in the weeks to come, the first one in Munich, the second one in London, I am so excited about both!

Aesop.

Aesop_2

I became aware of Aesop brand through Instagram, as beauty products signed by this Melbourne based manufacturer appeared regularly on my favorite profiles. I became intrigued, researched a little, visited their signature spaces in Zurich… and became addicted.

Aesop is all about nature and simplicity, offering a range of superlative products for the skin, hair and body. Their products are locked in apothecary, almost ascetic packagings and sold in refined, carefully design spaces. Aesop stores are available in major locations around the world and visit to each and every one of them is an experience, thanks to the unique interior design, well defined by clean lines and preference for minimalism and natural materials. To my delight, Aesop opened their first signature shop in Oslo, a beautiful space on Prinsensgate 21 designed in collaboration with local architecture firm Snøhetta.

Totême. Scandinavian Beautiful.

Totême is a clothing line that its founders, Elin Kling and Karl Lindman, describe as “refined yet casual luxury”. This Swedish couple living in New York take inspiration from Scandinavian simplicity influenced by more refined, cosmopolitan look. Totême is a brand identified with classic designs focused on quality, neutrals and timeless appeal, but with a modern edge. The spirit of Totême is all about Northern minimalism accompanied by more adventurous details.

It is worth to mention that Elin Kling is not only a designer and entrepreneur, but also a blogger and editor, as well as a Northern fashion icon popular in Scandinavia and admired by her urban and effortless personal style.

Diptyque Paris. L’Art de la Cire.

Diptyque Paris_1

Diptyque is a French brand associated with their line of über chic candles – elegant, refined, luxurious… simply wonderful and so addictive… Their story dates back to 1963 when a unique blend of wax and perfume was introduced for the very first time. Since then the manufacturing method was perfected to create a par – excellence, exclusive hand made candle made with an utmost precision. Scents are carefully composed, with bouquets inspired by nature, childhood memories or travel impressions.

Since the first store opened in Paris at 34 boulevard Saint – Germain, Diptyque developed into a bespoke brand, offering a range of unique perfumes, face and body care products, quality candles and home fragrances.

Kinfolk.

Kinfolk

Kinfolk is an independent quarterly magazine focusing on lifestyle and embracing a concept of a slow, reflected life. Founded in 2011, it promotes simplicity, community and quality, encouraging social gatherings and creativity. Base for editors is Portland, Oregon, but magazine contributors are located globally, so this publication offers a wide, multicultural perspective.

What I like the most about Kinfolk magazine are wise, personal and intimate articles accompanied by beautiful photo editorials or illustrations. It feels as if every word was selected with great care, so the language is truly elegant and stimulating – very few publications can inspire their readers to speak in a more precise, refined fashion, but this one does so. What I find important is a careful approach to advertising – there are hardly any – which makes it even more special, for contents speak even louder. I would definitely recommend Kinfolk to those who seek intelligent, thought provoking, yet friendly and somehow homely lecture.
