Inspirasjon er en fantastisk opplevelse. Noen ganger kommer inspirasjonen når du dagdrømmer, andre ganger kommer den når du ser en kult kledd jente på bussen. Inspirasjon kan være alt fra et vakkert bilde til ekte natur. Den kommer kjapt på besøk og lar deg sitte igjen med en god følelse. Ofte har det hendt at jeg glemmer hva jeg tenkte på, så nå har jeg alltid med meg min rosa notatbok, så jeg kan skrive ned alle tankene mine. I det siste, har jeg tenkt mye på blåfarger, og dette coveret med Jerry Hall er en av mine favoritter. Det er så vakkert, som en blå drøm. Det jeg liker med disse coverne er at de er flott inspirasjon for årets mote. Fletter, blått, rosa & rødt, og Jane Birkins nydelig brune hår mot de orange bokstavene. Typisk 1970 tallet, men allikvel så nå. Har du et favorittcover?
Inspiration is such a wonderful thing. It comes and goes, sometimes I remember it for a moment and then it passes, like a visitor at bay. First I thought my mind was giving in on me, but then I realize that it is a form of daydreaming that generates new ideas. Now I always write things down in my pink notebook, so I can go back and look at them. Lately I have had a new found love affair with blue, and that reminded me of one of my all time favorite Vogue covers with Jerry Hall. Its such a fresh and vibrant cover and always puts me in a good mood. What I love about all these covers is that they are great for inspiration for this summers 70s look. The braids, the blues and the red and pink(which are quite daring, but a combination I personally love). And you cant really talk about the seventies without mentioning Jane Birkin, and she looks so lovely here. The brown hair towards the orange letters are just beautiful. I am sure I am forgetting something, but that is the falldown of daydreaming..
Do you have any favorite covers from another area? Where do you find inspiration? Let me know!

Hi Silje-yes, you've chosen some wonderful covers to showcase here!! I love the 70s references and the Jane Birkin cover is so dreamy looking! For some reason, I've been inspired by the 80s era at the moment-I love the body con look-it so reminds me of my disco and clubbing days back in the 80s-haha!

ooo gorgeous, I'm not usually into the 70s, but these are awesome!

I'm always obsessed with the 1940s, especially since the Edge of Love is coming out soon and has a stunning cotume dept

And Vintage is virulently Timeless, as Marie Helvin's Beauty . . .
Mmmh Mmmh, So I don't to be too inquisitive, and even less miss gallantry( I am a NICE guy), BUT I'm sure that actually one of these elegant covers dates your year of birth . . .
Innocent forecast . . .

A Bientôt, Antoine

Herlige covere, de er vel fra leeeeenge før jeg og mange andre kom til denne verden. Blir så imponert av andres kreative verk, vakkert!

since i worked at the vogue brand (well, teen vogue), i was tempted to purchase some vintage covers for my bedroom. unfortunately, there are so many to choose from, that i got completely overwhelmed and gave up on the idea!
