I spent six days in London last week, because I wanted to escape for my birthday and see many of my friends, who currently reside in the city. It was as good as always, but one of the highlights was to try on a few pieces from Bottega Veneta by Daniel Lee! It is so different to experience his designs in real life – the fit is great, everything looks well thought-out and contemporary. I’m sold!
Caroline Lundqvist is a talented model and artist based in Stockholm. She is obsessed with oysters that appear as the motive of her paintings, but her aesthetic point of view is equally eye-catching and very worthy of anyone’s attention. As told by Caroline:
Tell me about your style. What brands do you wear?
My style is minimalistic and timeless. I have been a thoughtful shopper for a long time, and I prioritise quality; when I buy new expensive pieces, I always keep in mind that I can use them for many years and still like them.
I mostly wear Levi’s 501 jeans or trousers from The Row, Totême or Khaite, which I combine with either a t-shirt or a tank top, and wear with a sweater or blazer. I’m a big fan of Céline by Phoebe Philo and The Row! I bought a Céline cashmere sweater last year, which I kind of have been living in and I still love it. I also like Filippa K’s tights and shorts, and cashmere sweaters from their Soft Sport line – that is my Sunday uniform! When it comes to accessories, I love Céline, Norrfolks, All Blues and Engelbert.

How did you become an artist?
I started painting when I was very young, so it has always been part of me. Eleven years ago, when I ate my first oyster, I new immediately what I wanted to paint, and after nine years I opened a website for my fine-art prints.
Nowadays I paint a lot in oil and the motive is a bit more surrealistic, but oysters are always at the centre. I’m going to start sculpturing this year, which I’m really looking forward to!

What are you planning to buy next?
My plans is to buy a new bag from The Row or Céline’s Box bag, which I haven’t been able to stop thinking about. But I cannot stop buying more Manolos…
But I will definitely get the Como scar by Totême, a long black coat and a sweater or two for the fall. Also, Sophie Bille Brahe’s latest La Dolce Vita collection is stunning! Both the pearls and diamonds! I might have shown my fiancé a potential wedding ring.
What are your favourite beauty and skincare products?

How do you detox?
I drink a lot of water and lemon water every morning, meditate and eat healthy organic food. I love to cook as much as I love to paint, and I am very aware of food additives. I also try to be near water and in the woods, as that is where I feel calm and relaxed! I also do social media detoxing from time to time.
What are your plans for the summer?
The plan was to go to Italy, but both me and my fiancé have been traveling a lot lately, so we have decided to stay in Sweden and enjoy the summer here!

Bottega by Daniel Lee does grow on me, and it is nice to see good bags after a while! I am totally obsessed with the Acro style featured in the picture above, which appeared on their social media earlier today.
