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.

New Love in Fashiontown: RIKA

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on May 27, 2010

There are moments in our lives that will change anything and looking back we are under the impression that we knew exactly what we were doing, when being asked how we managed to get the job we always wanted, dated the hottest (wo)man there was to date or how we influenced somebody’s life to the better, we are sure to tell a confident story of well prepared steps and skills. But the truth is, a moment that life-changing is barely ever noticed until the effects of it can be seen as rock-solid results.

When Swedish born stylist-turned-designer Ulrika Lundgren started her fashion label Rika in 2005 she was probably one of the few who knew exactly what she was doing. After a successful career in fashion and interior styling for prestigious magazines such as Casa Vogue and Elle Decoration, Lundgren put her creative drive and her experience in the fashion world to a good start. As for her love of details Lundgren credits her Grandmother who showed her that the round-off to a harmonious outfit lies in the small things. The designer’s choice to use handcrafted chemical free leather and canvas is an additional bonus showing her understanding to a modern’s girl wardrobe that will include strong pieces as well as romantic items and won’t miss a vast selection of timeless vintage pieces.

WHAT HAPPENS IN PARIS STAYS IN PARIS – A/W 2010

Rika’s upcoming Autumn/Winter collection 2010 was inspired by modern icons and French it girls du jour like the always natural beauties Vanessa Paradis and Clémence Poésy. Notebookprints, soft colors and nude tones are giving this collection its je ne sais quoi but besides the playful and mysterious charm of French Bohème, the signature pieces must be the stars and lips accessorized leather goods. Every woman on Planet Fashion says she would love to get a hands on the 2.55 from Chanel but one look at the rosé colored suede Liv Bag and the hearts of young girls and women alike will be handed over into the arms of passionate up-and-coming designer Ulrika Lundgren who understands the core of feminine need for dressing.

We might age but we will never lose our need for playful and eye-catching details uplifting our walk as we manage every moment of our so-called life – but it’s a hell lot of easier being confident when you feel good in the clothes that you are in.

RIKA – FASHIONAPPROVED BY OPENING CEREMONY AND COLETTE

It doesn’t come as a surprise that Rika is highly in demand. A special collection is currently available at Opening Ceremony and RIKA MAGAZINE’s issue no.two has become a rare collector’s item, sold out even at Colette or what I like to call it: Fashionmecca.

If you want to know how your Strytllr heard about this amazing fashion treasure, then you must not have read my past articles carefully. The reminder is here.

Details @ Acne fall 2010

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on February 9, 2010

Ever since Lady Gaga stepped into the picture accessories have to be big, bold and loud. I love the fresh breeze of inspiration but let’s be honest: for most of us there are not many occasion to dress gagaish.  There isn’t enough space on this overcrowded planet for huge hats nor do we have enough time to walk slowly to the next appointment with extreme platforms. Therefore I love the approach of Swedish label Acne in their fall 2010 collection which they presented last week at Stockholm Fashion Week. The look found its perfection in the details that are extraordinary and yet blend in perfectly with the ensemble. By now you may have read enough about the fantastic parkas and free-flowing trousers with anarchic all over prints.

Among the best novelties of Stockholm Fashion Week was probably the alien-meets-elf make-up with sleek and interestingly braided hair. Soft metallic shades of copper and green accentuated the foreheads of the models. Lips and eyes were kept in nudes and gave the models the extraterrestrial look.

The feet were also carefully styled with ‘leg jewelry’ giving the impression of being oversized bangles. A trend that looks so hot that I hope it will spread to the south end of the Baltic Sea by springtime. I can see myself wearing this with gladiator sandals and harem pants as well as with high-heels and leggings.

Let’s all hope fashion fall starts early this year because this is an accessory trend that was made to be worn and seen soon. Well done Stockholm!

Yours in the name of accessories,
Strytllr
