Someone who doesn’t know me for a very long time would never guess I was the lead singer in a rock band way back in my high school years.
I listened to rock, loved it and my role model style inspiration at the time way Liv Tyler on Aerosmith’s video for “crazy”.
The years went by and my style drew quite far from there, towards the more dainty and elegant side, but wait often I find myself wanting to be a bit more edgy and cool and reconnect with the rocker that still lives somewhere inside of me.
The theme I chose for this season’s collection in the world of Rock. Choosing an inspiration which is quit detached from my natural style and everyday life was an intriguing challenge, and I was totally up for it!
Finding the right balance between my dainty, minimal design aesthetic and the rough and toughness of rock wasn’t easy.
The color palette for this collection if fairly different as well, and focuses on the color black. It is incorporated into most of the items using different materials such as rubber, FORMICA®, leather, crystals and more.
The names of the items in the collection pay tribute to great rock legends such as Jagger, Morrison and Hendrix, but apart from these, it was important for me to pay a special tribute to the late great David Bowie, one of my all time favorite artists and design a line dedicated to him. The line includes several items with Ziggy Stardust’s lightning icon.
