So I haven’t been the most dedicated blogger recently, but I’m changing that now that the spring collections are arriving and the sale period is coming to an end (finally).

It’s almost time for me to visit Milan again, I leave next week, and It’s going to be super exciting seeing what Giuseppe Zanotti and Emilio Pucci have come up with for AW12, not to mention Jimmy Choo. The week after that it’s time for Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik in London, and I can’t wait! Is it obvious I love my job?

I am also over-seeing our selection of brands for the coming seasons, and there are just so many great brands to choose from. We specialize in “shoe-brands” like Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo, and I like the fact that these designers create shoes for the sake of creating shoes, and not just “something pretty to go with the ready-to-wear-line”. But of course there are designers such as Stella McCartney who put a lot of effort into the shoe collections, and these become very independent from the ready-to-wear. So really, what I’d like is to mix in another brand like Stella McCartney, that has a unique aesthetic different from the dedicated shoe-brands. Are there any brands you would like to see at ShopSavannahs.com and in the Savannahs boutique in Stockholm? Let me know!

SAVANNAH ALSÉN PART FIVE

This is the fifth post by Anna Kopito, featuring my favorite skirt from H&M and shoes by Christian Louboutin.

SHANGHAI
Det var länge sen jag bodde i Shanghai. Sedan dess har jag bott i Taipei och jag har nu siktet ställt på Hong Kong. Jag tog mig till Shanghai efter gymnasiet och där läste jag kinesiska på Fudan University. Det var en helt fantastisk upplevelse i en underbar stad, och jag minns allt som i ett rosa skimmer, vilket kanske inte är helt rättvist. Shanghai bjuder på enorma kontraster både vad gäller välstånd och kultur, mellan nyrikt och fattigt, kommunism och kapitalism samt blänkande nytt och antikt. Jag rekommenderar Shanghai för den som är nyfiken, har överskottsenergi och inte är rädd för konstiga dofter.

Eftersom jag inte har varit där på ett tag är kanske mina tips lite daterade, men jag rekommenderar att vandra runt på Changle Lu och Xinle Lu i French Concession, kör en spa-dag på Dragon Fly, och glöm inte att ta en drink på Glamour bar på Bunden.

I lived a short time in Shanghai many years ago, since then I have spent equal time in Taipei and now I have my sights set on Hong Kong. After graduation high school I left Stockholm for Shanghai and studied Mandarin Chinese at Fudan University. The experience was amazing and the city was wonderful, full of contrasts. Shanghai has both insane riches and devastating poverty, communism and capitalism, and everything feels either brand new or antique. I recommend Shanghai for anyone who is curious, energetic and unaware of stinky scents.

I haven’t visited Shanghai in a while, but when I do I will wander along Changle Lu and Xinle Lu in the French Concession, spend a spa-day at Dragon Fly and stop for at least one drink at Glamour bar on the Bund.

So I’m in London placing the order for Christian Louboutin Fall/Winter 2012, and right now I’m at Joe’s on Draycott having dinner and looking through the order sheets. I loved the new collection, hope you will too!
