Q&A #3

Hi guys! I'm in bed sipping on a cup of coffee, slight hungover after a night of beer drinking and dancing last night. Coming up is the third part of the Q&A. Fashionnnnnn yes.

What do you think of when you go shopping?

I try to be smart about it, but it almost never works out. Often there is that one item that I want and I just go buy it online. But if I go to the stores, then I can go completely off the rails and get things that doesn’t go with anything I own. I really want to become smarter and more structured. Stick to a list for every season. Both for my own economy and the environment.

Who inspires you fashion-wise?

My friend Frida. Veronica Heilbrunner. All the skater boys in the city. Camille Rowe. Bianca Jagger. Just to name a few. I feel like it goes hand in hand with people's energy and personality. If I find them interesting, then the clothes become interesting too. It’s like an extension of the person.

How would you describe your style?/Tell us everything about your style and your thoughts on fashion!

Ever since I was a kid I've always been very interested in the fashion industry and everything around it. But as I've grown older it has evolved into a love-hate thing. I think the whole industry is fucked in so many ways, but the idea behind fashion is amazing and probably one of the most sincere art forms there are. I don't really keep up with designers or trends though and I don't care about being first with anything or getting the most hyped item of the season. But of course I am affected by trends, since it reflects on what's in stores. But I find myself getting so provoked when everyone buy into a trend or a brand that it makes me hate it. Like, the whole concept of logos is bullshit to me. It's like branding cows at a farm.

That being said, wearing an Acne leather jacket is just as much of a "logo" as wearing a fucking Supreme t-shirt. You know what I mean? So I'm totally being contradictory. I just think that the idea of personal style is dead. There's no such thing. You can talk a big game about how you dress unique and you have "your" look, but truth is we're all in the same boat exchanging ideas and outfits. And also saying that you sound like an asshole, so don't.

My thing is I like fashion and clothes, but I hate thinking about it. It stresses me out and if I think too much I end up having a panic attack in front of the mirror. So a while back, I stopped. I've come to terms with what I feel comfortable in and what I look good in. I love to mix masculine and feminine, slouchy and tight. For an everyday look I always tend to go to my safe cards. Vintage Levi's jeans, tight turtleneck or t-shirt and sneakers. That’s my uniform. I don’t wear a lot of makeup and I don’t do anything with my hair. If it’s greasy I pull it back in a tight bun. The quicker the better. I like to keep it simple and then add a keychain or a pair of earrings or a scarf if I feel like it.

When I’m going out I keep the same silhouette, but I probably go for a darker pair of pants or a darker, sheerer, more revealing top. I don’t really like dressing up and prefer going out in sneakers over anything else. I want to be able to jump around and dance. And I'm tall with great legs, so I really don't see the point. But I like to spend a little more time on makeup, maybe add some eyeliner or a dark lip. And my hair just stays the same. 

Where do you get your clothes?

Probably where all of you get yours. H&M, Zara, Uniqlo, vintage stores. For designer brands I tend to go to either ssense.com or Opening Cermony's webiste. They have all the brands in one place which makes it way easier.

Have you cut and colored your hair???

Yes! It was a while ago now, but cut it first and colored it a week later. I feel so much more like myself in darker hair, although I miss my length. But it was well needed.

When are you getting your new tattoo? (So stoked)

Soon!! Either like, this weekend, or I’ll wait till I go home for Christmas and get it done in Stockholm. I’ve gotten my tattoos in each country I’ve lived in, except from Sweden which feels unfair since it’s my home. So I think I might just get it done there.

Well, where is that top from.. So Nice!

The red t-shirt is from H&M's studio collection.

I really like your style! Have you found any winter coats you could recommend?

I got a black, long wool coat from H&M which is really nice and classic. I was also eyeing this dream of a jacket from Totême but it’s half a fortune so… Other than that I really like the classic North Face puffer jackets or a nice vintage shearling coat.

Do you dress each morning based on what you’re feeling for or do you plan ahead?

I never plan ahead, because I know that I won't stick to it. I'm very much a dress after mood kind of person.
