Today I want to showcase some exceptional design. If you’ve followed me for a longer while, you know I’m a sucker for skinny jeans combined with an oversized top. Basically I haven’t worn baggy pants due to the fact that I’ve lived in the diluted thought that I look short as a midget in them. I’m not tall to begin with (approx 5 foot 7) so I need all tricks out there to make me look taller, but strangely enough this baggy look doesn’t make me look short(er) at all. In fact, I like this brand so much I will wear their creations to London Fashion Week Men’s 2017 (where I’ll be next week, yay) to showcase Swedish fashion.
The brand I’m talking about it KHND Studios who have already made it on the US market, but finally are coming over to Europe and I’m immensely proud I get to showcase a waste range of their products, something you’ll see in my coming posts. This post is not about being patriotic about Swedish clothing though, but about good design in general.
The details and materials are beautiful and so are the colors of the garments. As I’ve said before, I don’t give a flying freak about conventions in fashion. If I want to wear pastel in the winter, I do so and wearing pink, champagne and beige just brightens up the streets that are so monochromatically black at the moment.
Then there’s the part about accessorizing… I truly feel naked if I’m not wearing a timepiece. Let’s call me a watch addict, but If I don’t wear one it’s almost as bad as leaving home without my iPhone (well, not quite as bad, as that would result in utter disaster). This timepiece is one of a kind so to speak. It is from a recently launched German company called Lilienthal Berlin and I’m one of the first who got to wear them and have received many compliments about the black and gold combination of this particular model. All their watches are inspired by the lifestyle in Berlin and that suits me well as Berlin is basically just as crazy, creative and daring as I am when it comes to everything from sharing my own opinions to what I wear. I’m not as far out there as some people in Berlin, but I do walk my own path in life.
The tower in the background is called “Turning Torso” is situated in Malmö where I work and it’s the highest building in Sweden. It’s a cool residential building and for those who love architecture (as I do) I can tell you it’s a creation of the renowned architect Santiago Calatrava and from here you can see the bridge (connecting Sweden and Denmark, also known from the TV-show with the same title) as well as the skyline of Copenhagen in Denmark. Living down here has its perks and being able to cross several borders and enter new countries in a matter of a few hours is certainly one of them. You’ll see loads more to come from KHND Studios as well as Lilienthal Berlin, but this was a short introduction. And oh, just for the record, KHND Studios are having a mid season sale at the moment so make sure to check them out!
