Getting the opportunity to work together with brands I've been lusting and dreaming about for years is something worth writing down in that little diary of mine... After stopping along Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré to look at the mesmerising Lanvin display windows (if you haven't seen them already I highly recommend making a little detour next time you're in town) during my first four months in Paris, photographing for them feels like a something out of a dream. ...And that's pretty much of what I wanted to illustrate with the help of these photographs. But I'm not sure that laying down in the grass, dressed in the prettiest Lanvin dress, among a small fortune flowers and with the cutest Lanvin DeRigo eyewear collection I think I've ever seen, can be described as anything else.

Anyone who know me also knows that I might be the most awkward person in this world once the camera is turned around on me (and I try to avoid this at all cost if I can't have 100% control over the situation) but who can say no to a divine Lanvin dress and a pair of pastel pink heels? That's right. You just can't. So that's the story about how I ended up in the grass with flowers in my hair. I'm so happy I had the loveliest team of people around me to help with creating these pictures and that we got to shoot it all in one of my favourite gardens of Paris, at the Swedish Institute. I truly hope that you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed shooting them and maybe even that they'll inspire spring to arrive a tiny bit earlier here in Paris so that I'm finally able to strut around the city in my new Lanvin sunglasses.

This has been the first part of my work for Lanvin and I can't wait to share more even more with you very soon so stay tuned!
