Victoria's and Daniel's friend Karl-Johan Persson, ceo of H&M, told today that H&M will launch a new upmarket fashion brand in London, as the rest of the group endures "very tough" market conditions.
Sweden's H&M said Arket will open its doors for the first time in the autumn, selling clothes for men, women and children as well as homeware.
Karl-Johan Persson said the store will focus on "quality in simple, timeless and functional designs", which will sell at a "slightly higher price segment than H&M".

The Global Change Award is an innovation challenge by H&M Foundation, one of the world's biggest challenges for early stage innovation and the first such initiative in the fashion industry. By catalyzing early innovations that can accelerate the shift from a linear to a circular fashion industry, the aim is to protect the planet and ensure our living conditions.
An expert panel annually selects five winners that share a grant of €1 million and get access to a one-year innovation accelerator provided by H&M Foundation, Accenture and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
The non-profit H&M Foundation is privately funded by the Stefan Persson family, founders and the main owners of H&M. Since 2013, the family has donated SEK 1.1 billion (USD 154 million, EUR 123 million) to the Foundation.

Victoria delivered the first Global Change Award in February 2016.

Cedric Notz has started a company in Sweden. The company, which goes by the name "Ubanoo AB", was registered in February this year and so far there are only Cedric Notz and Andrea Brodin who sit on the board.
- It's a very, very early stage, so really, I don't want to say anything at all. The name can be changed, the concept can be changed ... But the idea is that we will begin to launch products early next year, he says mysteriously without revealing what industry the company is to operate.
Some years ago Cedric Notz worked together with his best friend Chris O'Neill in the company Noster Capital. But there isn't any plans to work together with Chris now.
- No, this is a little outside his area, said Cedric, laughing.

Svensk Damtidning has Andrea Brodin's interview at their latest issue.
A wonderful family, new house, a prosperous career, it is going well now for Andrea Brodin (and yes, she is also the best friend of the crown princess, but we don't talk about that...)
- I'm incredibly satisfiend on where I'm now with my work, family, relation and place in the world. I'm so grateful for what I have. I love my work and have passion for my company but I have learned that there should be a balance in life, says Andrea at Café Foam.
Mother of three Andrea seems to have found a balance to her life with entrepreneur Cedric Notz.
- I thought it was challenging to be on a full time maternity leave with my older children, and leave my work identity totally. Now it feels that everything is in a good balance. Isabella is an incredibly happy child. She is my happiest child and that is why I'm so pleased too. And I'm much more cool this time. I'm older and know how I should do my days so that everyone is feeling well. And when I have been at some nice work event I have much more energy with my child.
Diana, 10, and Ivar, 8, think it's great that they have a baby sister and like to help. But the most happiest is the family's dog Jaxy.
- She thinks Isabella is her puppy and kisses her all the time. If Isabella is crying Jaxy goes to her, licks her and comforts. Jaxy looks after the pram in a lovely way, it is touching to look at.
Andrea tells that she didn't have a 40th birthday crisis, she had a real crisis with her divorce in 2011.
Andrea could not foresee that she would meet the man of her life at the wedding of Madeleine and Chris. Their mutual international friends introduced them to eachother, the friends thought that they would be a good match. And they were.
Cedric has moved from Gstaad to Stockholm and is thrives very well. The couple lives at an apartment in Östermalm but have bought a house in Lidingö.
- As much I love my life in the city I have to get out to the nature. Buying the villa now seemed a good timing. We both love nature and love to take the children to a cycling trip.
Every summer the family goes hiking to the Swiss mountains.
- The children are hiking too. They are very competent. We walk two hours, have lunch and walk then still some hours. It is very cosy and charmingly beautiful.

Victoria's and Daniel's friend Sofia Schörling Högberg, 38, was chosen as the Vice Chairman of the Board of Melker Schörling AB (MSAB) on Tuesday at the company's Annual Meeting. Her father Melker Schörling, 70, is forced to retire due to his illness.
Sofia Schörling Högberg, Melker Schörling's oldest daughter, has slowly but surely started taking place with heavier company posts and is now about to fill the gap after her sick father faster than expected.
"Because I have some time been experiencing a gradual deterioration in health, I will leave my post at the board at the spring meetings in 2017", Melker Schörling wrote in a press release last October.
Sofia Schörling Högberg is no newcomer to the company. Already at the age of 27, she took place in the board of MSAB.
The Schörling family is the dominant owner of MSAB. The ownership structure from the end of December 2016 showed that the family controlled just over 86 percent of the votes followed by Stefan Persson by 4.8 percent.
Last week, Sofia Schörling Högberg was chosen as a board member of the lock company Assa Abloy's board. A few days earlier, she also received a membership of the board in the company Hexagon and previously she is at the board of Securitas.
Sofia's husband Anders Högberg is Victoria's old classmate from Enskilda Gymnasiet and Victoria and Daniel attended at the wedding of Anders and Sofia. Anders and Sofia are still friends with Victoria and Daniel.
The Schörling family has a long time had strong ties with the royal family. Melker Schörling and wife Kerstin are self-written guests at the king's official and private parties and when the king filled 70, they were on the guest list. The friendship ties have clearly been inherited. And not only with Sofia. Younger sister Märta Schörling Andréen, who is also in the board of the family empire Melker Schörling AB, is close with Madeleine.

Count Carl Adam "Noppe" Lewenhaupt organized annually "Noppe's Summer Party" at Café Opera. Now his wife Lee Lewenhaupt and stepson Leonard Johansson continue the tradition.
- Yes, the party will be on June 21 at Café Opera, says Leonard Johansson.
It will be the tenth year that the party will be held at Café Opera. Previously, it was held at Berns.
- Of course, this year's party will be held in honor of Noppe's memory. But it's a summer party and not a memorial, explains Johansson.
Many celebrities have been invited to the party over the years.
Noppe Lewenhaupt was also known for running the membership club Noppes Bar & Restaurang, which was visited by King Carl Gustaf.
- Noppes Bar will continue for many years, said Johansson.

Andrea Brodin tells at her blog, that she and Cedric had Isabella's baptism yesterday at Riviera at a Catholic church with a Swedish priest from the Church of Sweden in Nice. If you ask kindly, they let you use the church even if you are not Catholic. Andrea sang "Sweet child of Mine" and Andrea's friend Lisa sang "Lenas sång" and the older children sang "Den blomstertid nu kommer". They had found pianist Nathalie by chance. Isabella had a lovely baptism dress which Cedric's sisters children had worn. The catholic priest allowed their dog Jaxy sit inside the church entrance. They held the christening there because so many in their families were already down there and those who were not here could easily get there from Geneva.
Then they had lunch at a restaurant on the beach. Decorations were a nightmare to fix, tells Andrea. Everything is style Provence and you could forget finding something a bit like baby-cute. Andrea bought pink fabric on the local market and made a table cloth, bought some small lanterns which she filled with pink and white flowers, and then Diana made "placement cards" of shells. It actually became very cute and summery.
