Lykke told Nicole about a pair of shoes of hers, and how she felt the sole was too thin and made her fall off stage. She wanted a pair that made her stand more steadily on stage, and started discussing some ideas with Nicole. Then she realized she needed a pair of slippers, in leather, to walk around hotel rooms in.
After that, she decided she needed an entire wardrobe that was unique and all according to her own personal style and needs. The project grew, and everyone was talking about it. Lykke told us that she wanted to be able to fit everything in one suitcase. She wanted to quantify an exact amount of things needed when traveling. Her life on stage, in hotels and everywhere in between really shines through in her collection. We also did a passport holder, a key holder, the perfect cashmere sweater, an oversized white shirt, the perfect leather bag and so on.
There's Always More Than Meets the Eye
Lykke was super picky with everything and careful with every detail. She wanted to be able to wear and use the things in her collection for the rest of her life. Every single piece has meaning and a story to it. I think all collaborations that we do should be somewhat like this; we want to work with nice people who are easygoing and resolute. Basically we do mini-surveys here at our ateliers, to see what people are wearing, for inspiration.
We get to sell color variations of shoes from Nike that few others stores hold, at least in Sweden. Could you ever consider bringing in other brands for clothes? I think that if we felt like we needed to, then we could do it. If we wanted to sell rain coats, and found a company that has an expertise that reaches further than our own in that area, then obviously we would try to collaborate. I think someone would probably describe my style as Scandinavian with the occasional Bohemian touch, or something like that.
For example, I have stuff from my grandmother mixed with simple things from the store. My kids think that I wear too much black, which is why I got some lingering looks when I came into the office wearing a very flowery dress one day chosen by them. I looked like a really nice mom, picking up her kids on a bicycle with a basket in the front filled with some fresh organic fruit or vegetables! Yeah, I travel a lot but not crazily.
I love living in Stockholm now, with my husband and kids, but I loved living in London and Paris and my dream of living in New York is still alive. The energy that these creative cities have is something many people like to be a part of. I love second hand, and I think it will accelerate even more than it already has. What do you think the opening of the New York store will mean for the brand?
When we opened in London and other European cities no one knew who we were, so this is quite different. We have a lot to learn about New York and New Yorkers, what they wear and so on. He looks and acts a lot like my husband. When I read this to my granddaughter we changed the name to Grandpa which she thought was very funny. Definitely a read again and again in this house and we are looking forward to seeing what Mr Griffs gets up to next. To all the Mr Griffs out there; keep being absurd! I received an ERC from the authors to read and review.

He's a lovely man. Griffs and some of his neigbors, including his next-door neighbor Steve, a slick, uptight advertising executive who can't seem to stop obsessing over his neighbor's way of life. When mysterious holes begin appearing in Steve's impeccable garden, he assumes it's Mr. Griffs and accuses him. Griffs takes the incorrect assumption in stride and decides to teach Steve a lesson about what happens when you assume It feels very summer-time cozy as you read- the neighborhood could be any suburban neighborhood minus the bush turkeys , which makes it easy to imagine the story and feel at home with the characters.
I wonder if in future Griffs tales we will find out more about why Steve is the negative, uptight person he is- perhaps we shouldn't assume too much about him! Griffs and I have a lot in common. We both mispronounce words on purpose to "liven up conversation", we're both a little rebellious I too sample at the store when no one's looking , and we're both a little or a lot stubborn. I think all of us have a little Mr. Griffs and maybe a little Steve in our personalities!

A fun summer read for all ages! Never Assume was an absolutely charming read. Telling the story of an quirky old man, Mr. Griffs, and his rivalry with his uptight neighbor, Steve Moran, it made me laugh and just feel an overall vibe of pleasantness.

Aug 09, Ellena rated it really liked it. To the author thank you for allowing me to review this book. For the positives I liked the fact that this book was very descriptive.

Pictures can make an interesting book even more interesting especially for middle school children. Also a few sections needed a little bit of editing or tweaking to make the story flow a little bit better and have cohesiveness.
To assume is to suppose or believe something without any proof. It also means to take over, usually responsibilities and duties, such as with a job, or to take on a look or attitude:. First, based on your question, we'll assume you're a recent college graduate. USA Today. Receiving no reply, three days later he sent a second missive, in which he assumed that his first letter had gone astray. Elizabeth S. Mary Cholmondeley. Presume is from the Latin pre "before" and sumere "to take," like taking something for granted.
It means to be sure of something before it happened. When you presume, you suppose something without proof, based on probability:. In her latest video, Britney Spears arrives on earth — an alien, we presume — to spread the message of consumerism.
Washington Post. I favor the latter explanation, also known as a sensibly presumed truth, just as I believe William Shakespeare wrote a few plays in his day.
