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
It is officially September. Back to school time for big and small (and parents). PAADE celebrates growth, intelligence, curiosity, and friendship. All cornerstones of a great time at school. Our fall selection for fun and stylish school outfits is here. With an emphasis on comfort, ease and fun to wear girls can mix and match fabulous outfits.
The season of change – fall brings us fall colours, cold mornings and puddles and makes us want to cuddle up in coziest knits and sip hot cocoa.
Paade fall favorites will brighten up the chilly, grey weather mixing comfort with stylish detailing and modern touches. Silky bright prints in Mary line paired with softest Alpaca blend knits brings back those weekends at the country house with board games, laughter and the crackle of the fireplace.
Rich forest colours, crushed velvet in old rose and fine knits create perfect outfits for every day. Mohair and silk blend cardigans are warm and soft and will complement both a dress and a pair of pants. Japanese merino knits in bold stripes and custom patterns make just the right thing to wear for a nice walk in the park and during a pitstop at the family’s fav cafe.
Ready for the weekend!
Glorious days of Indian Summers. When the light is golden, the sun still warm, yet the wind and shadows can pull in some cooler winds. Stunning photoshoot by Nici+Karin styled by Bettina Vetter for www.milkmagazine.net
“Cette série nous emmène faire le plein des derniers rayons de soleil d’un été indien, avec les pieds dans l’eau, sur une plage sauvage. On entre doucement dans l’automne en associant les petites robes fluides et transparentes à de gros pull en maille. Côté couleurs, les noirs, gris et beige s’illuminent grâce à des caramel et des dorés scintillants. Des looks poudrés et tendres, pour un automne tout en douceur.”
