Fashion

[:en]Acqua Limone was founded in Gothenburg (a cute little town in Sweden) back in 1979 and it’s not without a splash of childhood nostalgia I remember this brand from our family vacations on the Italian Riviera when I was a small kid (and damn, I did give away my age a bit there). Then Acqua Limone kinda was forgotten for a couple of decades, but now they’re finally back! Thankfully not all things from the late 80s and early 90s have made a comeback such as tans from hell, those puffy shoulder pads or those horrendous hair-dos although I’ve heard grunge is having a semi revival. There was a nice care free pink bubble gum atmosphere in the 80s though (or maybe my memory’s blurred by nostalgia and pics of Madonna and  MJ) and Acqua Limone brings me back to those days when pastels were THE shit with their vast range of sweaters, hoodies and tees with every pastel thinkable accompanied by their ever so recognizable logotype.

I’m in love with this off white hoodie and as I’ve just landed in Paris for Fashion Week I’ll be wearing both my aqua colored and pink pastel Aqua Limone sweater (pics will come later, promise) during daytime activities just to break up the ever so monochrome black dress code of the fashion mob which is uh, dull. And whoever said you can’t wear pastels in the fall season? Of course you can!

Photograper: Andreas Paulsson[:sv]Acqua Limone grundades i Göteborg 1979 och det finns något väldigt nostalgiskt över detta varumärke som jag minns från min barndom då pasteller och annat roligt var inne. Acqua Limone hade sin peak i slutet av 80-talet och början av 90-talet, men som tur är har inte överdriven solbränna, idominläppar och puffärmar gjort comeback (även om grungen oroväckande nog tycks ha någon slags revival), men det har däremot Acqua Limone som erbjuder hela skalan av nostalgiska pasteller med sin klassiska logga på. Jag är helt kär i bland annat denna off white hoodie som tar mig tillbaka till mina barndoms semestrar på italienska rivieran.  Har precis anlänt till modeveckan i Paris och dagtid går jag glatt runt bland annat med min aquafärgade tröja (bilder på den kommer senare) som bryter av lite lagom mot den annars så monokromt svarta modevärlden. Och vem sa att pasteller inte kan användas under hösten? Strunta i regler nu vetja!

    Fun hoodie from Aqua Limone! It’s great getting to work with brands that we knew as kids as that emotional attachment just makes the content creation even better.
