Camilla’s

I like the name Camilla. It reminds me somehow of summer and flowers. Maybe because it rings a little bit like cammomille. Good things come from those who are called Camilla. Just to mention one of my favorite Camilla’s is Camilla Norrback, a Danish designer who designs ecoluxury fashion.If possible I would seasonally buy the entire collection by Camilla Norrback. As it is though I try to buy some key pieces on sale… From this autumncollection these are a couple of my favourites, starting with a bow piece, since I love love love bows. The other Camilla I adore (and secretly envy on occasion for her talent, life and well general being) is the Swedish Camilla Engman. She makes illustrations and paintings and keeps a blog (well I guess if you don’t know Camilla Engman you have been living under a blog-rock).

Recently I discovered these two Dutch brands who are both producing clothes and accessories with respect. The first one is called Studio Jux and they make the most thrilling fair wear. The second is Philomijn, a leather brand that makes the most beautiful leather products. As of next season her products are also completely made with ecological leather from German cows who have had an animal friendly life. She also uses natural dyes like rhubarb and mimosa for colouring. Her bags are truly beautiful. I am so glad we […]
