And here’s a podcast from BBC’s Desert Island Disks with Lauren Bacall.

À la Bacall

Elegance wrapped in a name,
“Lauren Bacall”
A husky Newyork drawl,
Let the sound roll of your tongue
A wishful you, full of grace and in control.

“I am sure of who I am,
What I want,
What use I’ll make of you.
A man can’t hold me in his palm
Unless I want him to.”

Yet who would guess behind “The Look”
A stare so hard to please,
A girl called Betty, in her twenties
Is hiding ill-at-ease.

“Elegance is frigid”
Wrote a sage old Japanese
And every time I watch Bacall
I see what he might mean…

Yet there it is again!
In a wave of warm surprise
A moment on screen,
À la Bacall,
Where she is free and loose and true – no ties.

That glimpse of tender in the tough,
Of sassy in the brash
Balances out the attitude,
And with a shimmy and a smile
Can melt a heart or two.

Say hi to Jenna

Jenna Lundin is the type of woman, that can fool you at first glance. She seems calm and laid-back, but when you get to know her you realise how many projects she has going on and how ambitious she is. She was born in Switzerland, moved to New York to study Middle Eastern Studies & International Politics at NYU and after graduation she worked 3 years at Vogue Magazine’s art department. She then moved to London to get a Diploma in Contemporary Art History and in the Summer 2012, she set up the pop-up exhibition SEART in Stockholm for up-and-coming artists. She is currently doing a masters at The Courtauld Institute of Art. I don’t think I need to say anymore.

We are very happy to have Jenna as our new contributor at Wunderbuzz, I hope you will take good care of her. Big welcome!

Say hi to Iona

Iona Goulder immediately caught my eye in the film course we took together. She’s absolutely gorgeous, and has an amazing personal style. Iona is one of those women who has access to her grandmother’s amazing closet, so you’ll always see her wearing incredible hats and old tweed jackets. But it’s not just her looks that’s worth mentioning, she’s a very curious and intelligent woman, who pushes me to new heights in my own work because she’s so ambitious herself. Iona is on her final year of art history at Goldsmiths College and I have very high hopes for what she’s going to achieve in the future.

Iona is from now on a new contributor at Wunderbuzz, which I’m very pleased with. So a big welcome to her, I hope you’ll take good care of her.

New design, new chapter

Celebrating inspiring women & femininity

From 2008 – today, Wunderbuzz has developed from being about “fashion globally, from the core to the periphery, with an ambition to be a hub of wonderful things that inspire” into “Explorations of wonderful creations”. Throughout this development, one consisting theme has always been femininity and the celebration of women.

Therefore, I have decided to bring this even more into focus in the next period of Wunderbuzz’ life. I have teamed up with two amazing contributors (whom I will tell you more about shortly) and the ambition is to turn Wunderbuzz into a community committed to the intellectual, artistic and visionary pursuits of the Twenty-first century woman.

For this, Daniel Flösser from Field:Lab did his magic and has made the design even more simplistic, encouraging you to delve further into the posts and removing unnecessary noise and distractions. I hope you like it!

If you are interested in being a contributor, I would love to hear from you. Send me an email here.

R II S

The designer Stine Riis behind R II S

Stine Riis is the designer behind the fashion brand R II S, which definitely is a brand to keep an eye out for. Stine graduated from London College of Fashion a year ago, and things have been very busy since. She was selected by H&M as the winner of their newly created H&M Design Award, which means her clothes will be in selected H&M stores from this September! Se glimpses of what it is going to look like here:

Her recent SS13 collection is also very amazing:

Nobody knows what the future holds for R II S, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be something very exiting. Wunderbuzz wishes R II S (and Stine) all the luck in the world!
