Those long winter months are perfect for cozy family evenings with tea, home baked pancakes with a special jam. This homemade wild berry jam took me to a magical place, full of inspiration and wonders.
What is the secret of wild berries?
We, humans are like wild animals, we belong to nature. I have come to realize that my true home is by a campfire in the forest under the stars (Christiana Diamesi, yoga teacher)
Paade Mode’s home country Latvia is unique for its forests that are welcoming everyone to take a walk, explore nature and search for treasures of nature. Each summer we disappear into the woods, enjoying its rhythm and ease, picking up berries and mushrooms and teasing each other about our blueberry-colored mouths and teeth.
These wild berries – strawberries, blueberries, rowanberries, cranberries and many more. Healthy, smooth, sweet and sour, juicy in every bite. Bold colors, ideal shapes. Food for the soul. Bringing rich flavors and textures to our modern life.
Small, tenacious, special, delicious and super healthy. The harsher the conditions, the more valuable they grow. These berries are able to make you more organized, cure your headache, brighten your smile, reduced risk of cancer, serve as antioxidant and provide you with many more things.
And especially in conditions of uncertainty we can learn a lot from this wild part of our nature, taking strength and optimism from wild berries. Keeping in mind that both, humans and berries, can grow even stronger when harsh environment surrounds
A fresh start of new season, it’s all about having fun and wash away all your worries!
Spring cleaning isn’t just about sorting through things, thoughts. It’s about taking stock of who you are and who you want to be!
I hope you will get inspired by new Paade Mode SS21 story Spring Clean, shoot by amazing Helena Schutz

Miilu. Love you.
Like a touch – the most gentle dance of the wind. Like a glance – deeper than the universe. Like an accidental note found in Mom’s book, a drawing left on a pillow, a secret snowman in dad’s suitcase.
‘Love you’, when leaving for work or school. ’Love you’ when ending a phone conversation. ‘Love you’when settling down for the night.
That seemingly almost invisible, just about audible, quietly uttered whisper of ‘love you’ to the dearest, most special. That ‘love’ between the closest and significant loves of your life.
Paade Mode SS21 collection ‘miilu’ has been carefully and lovingly created at Paade Studio laboratory paying attention to every aspect and detail from the first drawings and patterns to sustainable and ethical production cycle.

Family. Warm. Bright. Cozy..any many more. These are the words what comes up on mind when we think about Advent time.

You can see how many joy it brings to everyone!

Have a Bright Advent Season,
Your Paade Mode
Have you ever been mad about something? Something you really love and would like to have it NOW!
We are ! This season we are MAD about PLAID clothes. We want everything in PLAID: Dresses, Coats, Pants, Shirts etc.
And we decided – let’s do it – let’s help our dream to come alive – who else if we not we? 🙂
Take a look on how we managed to do it – and let us know what do you think!
A bit more, we just can’t stop. By the way we loved the Vogue Italia May’s cover story – when we need to give our kids the blank page, so they can create their own!
Dreams always can become reality , just with a little help from yourself!
Artist, set designer and creative mind behind wine architecture studio STUDIO PILENS, @santapilens moved to Austria a year ago. Together with her husband and 4 kids they are now based in a small village, an hour drive outside Vienna – a picturesque wine region Kamptal. Their four kids keep the couple busy … “we are never bored, our kids are always up to something”.
Frida sets the mood. Choosing an outfit is important – because it literary makes her feel good, excited and positive. She loves skirts, dresses, well everything that is expressive and bold!
That’s our family tradition. Every saturday we visit the farmers market in Krems.
BOOKSHOP AND WAFFLES
Frida and Gertrude love books, so they are happy to visit the local bookshop. It has the old time flair. Pocket books are their favorite take-away.
Our dear friend run a beautiful fine dining restaurant in Langenlois – Heurigenhof Bründlmayer. Now during lockdown they have opened up a nice market style take-away cafe. We went for waffles, ofcourse.
For festive mood, some new kitchenware and kids toys we like to visit Schloss Walpersdorf (Lederleitner). It has the most beautiful kids room setup and vintage style toys.
WALK IN THE VINEYARDS
Moving to one of the most celebrated wine regions of Austria has brought some changes in our lifestyle… more comfortable, more laid back, but always with style… kids love walking in the vineyards, where they can see how grapes grow, taste them. Feel the nature and be part of it.
WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE WEEKEND WITH FRIDA & GERTRUDE
“Twice as much fun and twice the amount of outfit crush” Pepper.
Pepper: is dreaming to be a writer ; Her favorite season is summer; best time of the day is afternoon because she can play with friends or do other fun things. who/what can always make her laugh? She can laugh the most about her own jokes 😅 but she’s almost always happy!
EARTH + SPRING
Earthy tones dominate springtime, while the sun is yet to fully wake up the colours and light. Mix and match blacks, browns and oranges for an early spring inspired look.
The fresh smell of the world warming up to greet the awakening plant and animal life. Inhale and exhale.
Pst! Bloom is coming soon!
