Koffer? Why? Hvorfor? Porqoui?
Hvorfor kjøpte jeg ikke disse i Helsinki? Var det fordi jeg ikke hadde vent øyet til dem? Jeg har en teori: Det vi ikke liker ved første øyekast, men ser mer og mer av med tiden- det vil vi etterhvert begynne å like.
Nå vil jeg ha et par Swedish Hasbeens. De hadde vært perfekte vårsko. Spesielt inne på jobb.
Jeg får heller ønske meg noen fra årets kolleksjon. Regner med at Swedish Hasbeens kommer til å slå an utover våren og sommeren.
De tre bildene over er lånt fra Fitts and Company´s blog. Skoene er også omtalt i det engelske Grazia magazine.
Det er jo bursdag snart og lov å håpe. Jeg ønsker meg et par av disse. Ser at butikken Ho Milla i Henningsvær fører dette merket. Hurra! Eneste i NordNorge.
I want sa pair of Swedish Hasbeen. This is the story:
Her name was Anita and she was the hottest mum in all of southern Sweden in the 1970’s. While smoking Camel she screamed at her kids until her curlers fell out and just looked fabulous in her white high-heeled clogs. One summer day in 2006 we found the shoes she wore (300 pairs of red, white and black beautiful clogs from the 70’s) in the basement of an old clog factory in the neighboring village and brought them to Stockholm. So for all these people that shared our love for Anita’s wooden shoes and for ourselves we started Swedish Hasbeens.
The shoes are handmade and individual. That means that no pair is exactly alike. The shoes are made in the same hand-manufactured way as in the 70s. They are produced with natural grained leather. The soles are made of wood, which is a hard but fragile material.
Our ambition is to continue to release more incoherent and fun shoes and stuff inspired by Hasbeens that once ruled the planet. The Hasbeens toffels, bags and belts are based on original 70’s models and are made of ecologically prepared natural grain leather since it’s the most beautiful and the highest quality at the same time as it’s environmentally friendly.They are still handmade with respect for people and the environment in the same small Swedish factory since the 1970's. Our production methods and material are kind to nature and people. Happy toffels make happy people.
