Pic du Jour ::: Lykke Li

Posted in Editorial by strytllng on February 19, 2012

Long tome no read…I know.

I woke up this morning like any other day thinking about my sweet little blog and how little time I have to share some of my favorite finds on the net. I had a few thoughts lately about things I had observed on the streets but when should I write about them? I have one month of excessive travelling ahead of me (I’ll try to keep you posted on them.) and it’s not getting any easier with my job (which I do love!). In fact, I have to thank my hectic schedule for today’s blogpost because I am working (Yes, it’s a Sunday) and while I was at it I found this beautiful image of Swedish singer Lykke Li which I wanted to share with you.

Her winter comfort styling, the smooth coloring and the carefree look on her face made me love it immediately. Winter melancholy at its best. Powerful, isn’t it?

New Lykke Li

After long abstinence, the princess of Swedish Electro-Indie-Pop, Lykke Li, is back and she is teasing us with some free music. Check her new single Get Some and the B-Side of Paris Blue here.

 

How do you like Lykke’s new tracks?

I have been to the desert and back, I almost got hit by a bus in London, I tried surfing in Bordeira, I ate bad sushi in Berlin, I got drunk in Paris, I got severe blisters on my feet both in Lisbon and Madrid. I swam naked in the Swedish archipelago, I lost my voice in Gothenburg, I ate risotto in Milan, I fell off my bike in Stockholm. A psychic told me I will grow very old, a man told me I looked like Heidi Fleiss, my brother is in love, my sister is in New York, my drummer told me I’m bad of appreciating moments of grandness.

I am also hard at work in the studio.

My mind is occupied, my heart is healing, my voice in progress.

Lykke Li is finally back in the recording studio and I can hardly wait to see the outcome.

Impressions ::: Subject60 Tour Berlin

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on May 30, 2010


This little blogette got herself a pretty black envelope in the mailbox a few weeks ago saying that the Swedish family car brand will make a hip fashionable fuzz in Berlin’s Station, also residence to the Premium Exhibition. Everybody was invited: The minor celebrities, fashionable people, car interested folk, professional bloggers who saw their chance of taking as many pictures as they could to get an equal amount of clicks on their platforms the next day and then there were those like me: LYKKE LI LOVERS.

Yes, that’s right: Lykke my dear if you read this: hola! From your Acne booties to the black leather cape/longjacket, I loved everything about you effortless look. Your sets may have been short but were pure energy. Too bad the big cameras in the front row slowed down your spark from inflaming the second row but I didn’t care and neither did you, when you said:

Stop taking photos with your fuckin’ cameras and dance with me.

See, this is why you are a true artist and not just the stylish musician, many PR people would like to make you.

The rest of the evening can be summed up like this: drinks, drinks, drinks…all with alcohol (which is weird considering there was no water available for the first few hours at a car presentation event-but we liked that too), great job on the decoration with the big screen animations and the karaoke car performances but I must admit, while Lykke surely pulled in many guests, the Borchardt’s catering by Berlin’s most prominent celebrity restaurant, wasn’t any less spectacular.

Did I mention that Yvan Rodic and Adam Port were also part of the “spectacle”? Too bad Yvan was barely seen taking pictures of guests, because I love to watch him pull out people out of the crowd. DJ Adam Port on the other side did a great job getting the dancefloor moving.

As for my own comfort that evening, I celebrated it with friends and my “for free” outfit. An oversized squared jersey short dress from Anglomania by Vivienne Westwood which I got as a hand-down from a friend accessorized it with multiple gold chains which were either given to me by friends & family or which I got from parties in Berlin. My purse was a tote by No.74 which I got at the launch of the “I like my style” magazine a few weeks ago.

All in all it was a roaring night for Berlin’s fashion crowd supporting my ever-growing admiration for Lykke Li.

Dear past week,


I am grateful for many things this past week (well, not the grey-ish thing covering up Springsun). I got to invitations to see Sex and the City 2, One invitation to see Lykke Li perform while Yvan Rodic from Facehunter will document the fashioncrowd and Berlin’s celebrity restaurant , Borchardt’s, will provide some catering but what I liked the most must have been the arrival of the prize that I won from a Twittercontest from Miggy Likes The Internet.

Playful Promises, a London-based lingerie and swimwear boutique, so kindly hooked me up with one of their beautiful swimwear creations. The model I snatched is called Suzy Bikini and I can tell you: Suzy and her little fan print and ruffles are quite the eye-candy. Too bad we will never see the sun this summer. Suzy and me would have such fun at the beach!

A big THANX to Miggy and to the girls at Playful Promises!

XOXO
