Glossier play

“Glossier Play is a brand of dialed-up beauty extras.”

Har I set at Glossier netop har launchet et virkelig extra underbrand ved navn Glossier Play?

Jeg har sagt det så mange gange, at I snart må være trætte af at høre om mine varme følelser for Glossier brandet og founderen Emily Weiss. Men som inkarneret fan er jeg selfølgelig også nysgerrig på hvad underbrandet vil og kan. Jeg forstår Glossier Play, som den vilde lillesøster, der ikke kan få plads til at folde sine flamboyante vinger ud i Glossier’s overordnede univers. Hvor fokus især er ‘low maintenance’ i overbrandet Glossier, så lader det til at der under Play brandet bliver gjort plads til high-polish, glitter og alskens farver. Max glam.

Selvom produkterne - der lige nu består af lipgloss ‘Vinylic Lip, eye gel ‘Colorslide’, pallietgelé ‘Glitter Gelée og highlighter koncentrat ‘Niteshine - langt fra lægger op til mit sædvanelige look, så er jeg fascineret af det kreative og frigjorte univers. Stærkt påvirket af den über cool og gudesmukke Sarah Feingold (som jeg har crushet på i en længere årrække) er jeg især spændt på at afprøve de pigmenterede colorslides. Måske bære dem som her eller her.

Did you see the new and dialed-up Glossier sub brand; Glossier Play? I’m ofc intrigued as the massive fangirl that I am.

I understand it as the flamboyant little sister that simply could’t release its own wild potential with getting its own sub brand. While one of the main drivers and focus of Glossier has been on creating products that feel ‘low maintenance' and is relevant for anyone at any time, Play seems to focus on the completely opposite. With its high polish, glitter and a loud color scheme there is room for being playful and maxing out on the glam!

Despite the fact that the products - which right now consist of the lipgloss ‘Vinylic Lip, eye gel pencil ‘Colorslide’, palliette gel ‘Glitter Gelée and highlighter concentrate ‘Niteshine - aren’t like any of the products I would normally reach for when doing my go-to party look, I’m still quite fascinated by the playful and liberated universe. Under heavy influence of the dead cool and beautiful Sarah Feingold (who I have crushed on since years back), I’m especially hooked on trying the highly pigmented colorslide eye gel. Maybe something down the line of this or this look.

Restaurant Alouette

Hermed et par fotos af Restaurant Alouette, som fungerede som location for et shoot for Rabens Saloner tilbage i November. Rammerne, energien og menneskerne bag denne lille perle, som ligger hengemt på Islands Brygge, tog virkelig fusen på mig. Jeg må sige, der er altså langt i mellem så skønne mennesker som ejerne Camilla og Nick. Istedet for at investere i et hus, investerede de alt i at bygge Alouette — som mest af alt føles som et varmt hjem hvor du har lyst til at blive hængende på ubestemt tid. Restauranten gemmer desuden andre små fine finurligheder, som jeg dog vil lade forblive hemmelige, for ikke at forpure den fulde oplevelsen. Derudover, skulle maden eftersigende være meget anbefalelsesværdig, så Alouette står altså højest på min ønskeliste over dining oplevelser i 2019.

Just checking in to share a bit of photos from Restaurant Alouette which served as location for a shoot for Rabens Saloner back in November. The space, energy and the people behind this little gem located at Islands Brygge complete sweeped me off my feet. There goes a long way between meeting such people as the owners Camilla and Nick, whom with such passion has created a restraurant that feels like your best friends home. You simply don’t want to leave. I’ve heard the food is impeccable too, so there’s no doubt that Alouette is on top of my dining wish list for 2019.
