Stockholm continued

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The visit of the Tensta Konsthall continues:

Sample houses are close to Tensta Konsthall and the gallery was asked to decorate one of them.

Next we were off to the Bernhard Willhelm exhibit.

Afterwards we went off to the big show at the Bloomingdales of Stockholm, I ran into David Bartel, a writer that I had met last time I visited Stockholm for the Absolute Gaultier event. David just wrote a book that will be in the stores today on Zlatan, the most loved soccar player in Sweden. His book is an non authorized biography and Zlatan is not happy at all, he gave David an agressive call and then ended it saying: “This is not an interview.”David_bartel_writer_1Peter_astrom_and_majka_lamprechtPeter_astrom_and_star_party_giver
I ran into old friends of mine from New York, Swedish artist Peter Astrom and photo agent, Majka Lamprect. We had not seen each other in 15 years or more and Peter was here for a museum show of his work. Peter with the ultimate party giver in Stockholm.
The ultimate party ‘girl’ at Alice Timander at 92 and the first woman in Sweden to wear a bikini and she is a dentist.
Nicolas took excellent care of me the entire trip. Here he is by Miss Kittin before taking us back to the hotel.


My last showroom visit today was with Helena Horstedt. Helena draws inspiration from vintage pieces and she creates every piece by hand which sometimes requires 150 hours of labor. Photo of Helena by Sonny.
