SAVANNAH ALSÉN PART ONE

The first out of seven posts by Anna Kopito! Below you’ll also find the first part of the interview. I am wearing Alaïa boots and a J.Crew coat just outside the shop on Birger Jarlsgatan 1.

“Savannah Alsén, studerar juridik och driver butiken Savannahs.
Law student and owner of the shop Savannahs.

THE SHOP
Jag och min mamma startade Savannahs och ShopSavannahs.com för att vi saknade en butik i Stockholm som sålde skor som vi själva ville ha och för att det är kul att göra något eget. Vi fokuserar på skor men har även kompletterande väskor och accessoarer, och nästa månad börjar vi sälja Jimmy Choo, som tillsammans med Manolo Blahnik och Christian Louboutin utgör den gyllene triangeln av skodesigners. Vi och en butik till i världen (bortsett från de stora varuhusen) har dessa tre märken under ett och samma tak. Det känns stort!

We started Savannahs boutique and ShopSavannahs.com because we were missing a boutique in Stockholm offering the shoes we wanted to wear ourselves. Also, it is so much fun to create something of your own. Our main focus is on shoes but we do carry bags and accessories as well. We start selling Jimmy Choo next month, and together with Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin we can honestly say that we are one of two boutiques in the world carrying these brands under the same roof (apart from department stores). Isn’t it amazing?”

NOTHING TO WEAR

I have one of those nothing-to-wear-days, but if I could choose, I would just look like this and be done with it. Any of the above combos will do. Thank you.

I also did get the purchase appointment with the Louboutin office in London on Jan 12th. So that’s all good and done. Let’s hope my head isn’t spinning after the mega-exam the day before. Gosh.

Now: more studying.

PRESENTS, PAPERS AND PLANS

Glossy coffee table books make great gifts. Wouldn’t mind finding these under the tree in the boutique. Carine Roitfeld – Irreverent, Christian Louboutin – The Book and Harper’s Bazaar – Greatest Hits.

Right now I am working on my paper that’s due on Thursday, so I’m stuck reading less glossy books at the moment. I am also trying to piece together the first purchase appointments for the pre-fall collections. The thing is, I have  a huge exam in Uppsala on January 11th and the appointment window closes on the 12th at Christian Louboutin in London. Ah, life.

LOUBOUTIN SS12 PREVIEW

Since we’re approaching the end of the season, I’ll continue giving sneak peaks of things to come. The Matrinana shoe will be part of the Christian Louboutin SS12 cruise collection, and will be available in fuchsia as pictured as well as in off white (wedding bells, anyone?). Hot pink is a Louboutin favorite, and the color is always represented in the collection in some way.

The Cris iPad case is a new addition and actually part of the Louboutin men’s collection, but we liked it so much they let us put it down anyway. The price-point is going to be really interesting, and I believe it can be used an oversize clutch as well. Besides the leopard/gold stud combo pictured here, we will also have it in black leather with silver studs. Can’t wait to see it.

MORE MANOLOS, AND CAKE

Pictured are a few more Manolo Blahnik press samples that arrived late last week. I really like the electric blue sandal to the far left and the floral sandal in pink and grey. Maybe all the summery sandals inspired me, because I also made a Stella McCartney SS11 -cake this weekend. Why is it that I always long for the season I’m NOT in? Winter has barely begun and I am baking summer cakes and drooling over strappy sandals. I need a vacation!

PRESENTING: THE SEDERABY

I am in the shop today, and the weather outside actually feels like winter for the first time. Keeping me warm is another load of press samples from Manolo Blahnik SS12, and first out I would like to introduce the Sederaby. This d’Orsay (made famous by Carrie in Sex and the City episode “A Woman’s Right to Shoes”) comes in both soft silver nappa leather and black satin, with a new and improved buckle of even more Swarovski crystals than before. Soon you’ll be able to pre-order these Manolos online, and we’re expecting full delivery in Jan-Feb.
