Chic Ladies: Tina Lundin

 

Tina in Céline & Wardrobe.nyc during NYFW.

Tina Lundin is one of my dearest fashion partners-in-crime and a STYLEBY blogger colleague. She runs Let Them Wear Shoes aka @l_t_w_s_ , a platform known for a coveted collection all things Céline, shoes in particular! I mean, if I buy pretty deeply into Totême, it is no comparison to her devotion. But lets hear from this Gothenburg native – as told by Tina:

Tell me about your style and favourite brands.

I guess you could say that my style is part minimalist but never plain – I always like to give it a twist. I think my choices can be quite edgy and I love to draw inspiration from menswear. A few years ago my style was black, white and grey but that has changed a lot over the last couple of years.

What are you going to buy next?

I know exactly what my next purchases are… I’ve known since October when I placed my preorder at Céline’s showroom in Paris. It’s a yellow pleated skirt, a sleeveless grey blazer and a pink oversized suit. There might be a pair of shoes in there somewhere, I mean, as it turns out, one can’t have too many shoes, right?

What’s your survival plan after Phoebe Philo departs Céline?

Phoebe leaving Céline is devastating, if you ask me – what she’s doing at Céline really pushes all the right buttons with me. I love how it feels when I wear designs. It’s hard to put into words but ”empowering” is definitely a word that comes to mind. Right now I don’t really know what could replace Phoebe’s Céline for me but I guess time will tell. I’m lucky to have built a fairly good archive over the years and I will treasure it dearly.

Which are your beauty and skincare favourites?

I’m obsessed with my Le Mer moisturisers – it’s pricey but you get what you pay for. I don’t like to wear a lot of makeup but I’m a big fan of Glossier’s ‘Skin Tint’ and ‘Boy Brow’.

How do you detox?

Well, where do I begin… I’m a firm believer in beauty starts from within, so ”be kind to your body” is my motto and  ”drink plenty of water and exercise” is my foundation. I have a gluten-free, vegan diet and I try to stay away from refined sugar as much as I can. In fact, I try to steer clear of any processed foods as a rule and if I have a control over the situation, I’ll always gravitate towards the organic option. I don’t consume very much alcohol but I do love a glass of champagne on special occasions.

 

Hangs at Céline.

Could you recommend your favourite places from Gothenburg?

Gothenburg is pretty vegan-friendly. One of my favourite places is to eat in this family-run Vietnamese restaurant called Vi Viet. They are 100% flexible when it comes to adapting a meal to my diet and the food is truly amazing… plus the family are some of the nicest and trendiest people you’ll come across. It wouldn’t be uncommon to bump into them in town decked head to toe in Balenciaga! In the summer time there’s nothing better than having a glass of champagne under the West Coat sun outside Antibarbarus on Hisingen.

Once again Catherine Holstein has created some pretty lustworthy wardrobe essentials like the Clara peacoat. It is a standout piece for everyday use and comes in a statement plaid pattern as well.

The Wet Hair

 

The Row delivered an impeccable collection but the big, small things matter as well – like art by Noguchi and the wet-look hair! In my opinion, this particular hairstyle looked so chic and added a careless vibe. There’s no point blow-drying your after a beach day this year. Just off you go, ladies!

Good news to kick off the week – SK-II is finally carried by Net-a-Porter! Next Glossier, maybe?

I have a pretty deep love affair with the brand’s ´Facial Treatment Mask´ but I have been wanting to try out their ´Facial Treatment Essence´for so long…

Trench Season

 

The latest addition to my spring wardrobe is the `Pisa´trench. It is my first trench coat actually! I have always been a bit of a tomboy and was not sure if a trench would be my thing.  It is a probably an age thing that I can pull off this look today.

Chic Ladies: Linn Hägglund

 

Linn Hägglund is a stylist and creative consultant whose highly curated wardrobe choices have inspired me for several years. She has an ability to remain true to her chic, carefully though out style – I could not overstate how refreshing it is to see someone who continues to maintain a sense of integrity in everything she does. Earlier this year Linn styled Totême’s impeccable AW18 presentation and she currently divides her time between Stockholm and London. As told by Linn:

Tell me about your style and favourite brands?

My style is clean and subtle, and it’s important for me to always be comfortable no matter what. I wear the clothes, not the other way around. My daily uniform consists of Khaite denim, silk tops from Deitas, Céline cashmere sweaters and flats from Manolo Blahnik. I am lucky to work with a few of my favourite brands and grateful for being able to mix work with pleasure.

 

Does you personal style influence your work as a stylist?

Yes, it does. I always think of the big picture in many ways more like an art director. It’s important that the brand is the main focus, not the stuff I add for styling like shoes or accessories if the brand does not provide them.

What are you going yo buy next?

A new bathing suit from Eres, a voluminous cotton slip dress from Totême and a hat from Céline. I’m in a vacay mode!

 

´Original´ denim from Totême and heels from Manolo Blahnik.

Which are your favourite beauty or skincare products?

RMS Beauty or Mac for beauty. Filorga, Exuviance and La Mer for skincare products. I do facials every six weeks.

How do you detox?

I try to workout as much as possible. I do yoga, Becore and take long walks in Djurgården in Stockholm or Hyde Park if I’m in London. And I try to drink a lot of water which is hard to accomplish, though one of my New Year resolutions is to drink more water.

What are your plans for the weekend?

I’m in Miami for a vacation, so the plans are to spend time with my family at the beach doing absolutely nothing.

The Row AW18

 

The Row’s strong (lets just say to die for) collection was presented at their headquarters. It seems art is that lit backdrop which creates a chic context this season – the Olsen twins decorated the space with rarely seen art pieces by none other than Isamu Noguchi. Spot on!

But back to the collection. It is for the sharp, working woman who wants a well curated wardrobe that is understated and conveniently available. That is the Phoebe Philo approach, but since we will loose her chic wardrobe basics very soon, we can just agree on where to head next. I also fancy the boots which go straight to my infamous wish list!

 

View the rest of the collection here.

Current Obsession

 

 

I have been looking a new pair of shoes to update my spring uniform. Well, nothing new with that, but I think these white ankle boots from The Row totally have what it takes; they’re sleek and definitely not boring!

Chic From New York

 

As I have done during the past few season, I will share with you some of my favourite looks from the major catwalks. Firstly, I must start with this look from Bottega Veneta. They made an exception this season by presenting the AW18 collection in New York, but oh-la-laa – can we just agree that Julia Stegner looks pretty spot on in this perfect weekend look!

Fall Manolos

 

There are two things I want to get right every season – the bag and shoes. Twice a year. I really don’t need more even though I have cravings. In the fall I want to sleek boots from Manolo Blahnik like these boots seen at Totême’s AW18 presentation. Already saving up!

Chic Ladies: Christie Tyler

 

Christie Tyler is a New York City based creative, Founder of NYC Bambi and a fashion marketing student with a down-to-earth aesthetic worthy of your attention. As told by Christie:

Tell me about your style and favourite brands?

My fashion has gone through every style in the book, but I now feel content with what I like and what my usual go-to’s are. I wear neutrals and love simplicity with modern silhouettes and also classic pieces. My favourite brands right now are Totême, Nanushka, Khaite, Protagonist, A Personal Uniform, Re/Done and Acne. Céline inspires me tremendously.

What’s next on your shopping list?

I would like to buy another pair of Manolo’s. I’ve become entranced with all of their shoes.

Which are your favourite beauty products?

I am huge fan of Ouai haircare, as well as Le Labo for anything shampoo, body or fragrance. My favourite foundation and makeup brand in general is Armani. For skincare, I love Aesop as nothing works better on my skin! Other great brands are Clē Cosmetics, Herbivore Botanicals, Verso, Sunday Riley, Rodin, and Kiehls.

How do you detox?

I love doing hot water with lemon, I hear that is an amazing way to detox your body. Then I’ll do a facial, do a hair mask and use tons of oils. Drinking water in general and eating tons of greens are amazing ways to detox and kick your body back into shape.

What are your plans for the weekend?

I am doing a fashion studio shoot this weekend which will be exiting! Then I hope to relax, edit, do homework and have a yummy Italian meal with wine at some point.

The Vernazza Vest

 

The latest addition in my spring closet, which I’ve been wanting to show you so bad! It is the ´Vernazza´vest from TOTÊME PS18 collection, which (unfortunately) never went into production. It is 100% cashmere and the softest piece to layer on top of t-shirt or a white blouse, and it’s almost unique; they made two samples, one for Elin Kling, and the other one was so kindly saved for me. Merci ladies!

The Row In NYC

 

I have this obsession with beautiful retail spaces, which effectively bring clothing into a context. Lucky you, if have had the change to stop by at THE ROW´s retail place in New York City (it was opened straight after my last time in town). It is a still one that is forever inspiring… perfect weekend inspiration!

The Pisa Trench

Something we consider every spring, finding the perfect trench coat that is.

Well, it seems that Elin has created once again a piece to die for – the ´Pisa´ trench coat is a classic update. Now it remains to be seen if it is too long for me. Fingers crossed!

Current Obsession

 

If the Alphabet collection by CÈLINE was not an obsession of mine already in the fall, it really is right now (!), though I am not sure if I want an H or another alphabet. Ever since it was announced Phoebe Philo is departing, I’ve been wanting to fill my closet with CÈLINE only. So yes, I am part of the skeptical club…

P.S. Anyone in Paris and willing to buy me one?

Chic Ladies: Josephine Dahlin

 

Josephine Dahlin is the Founder of DEITAS – one of my go-to labels for chic leisurewear and effortless pieces to wear on a vacation. But maybe more importantly I really love her aesthetic and how she curates her own wardrobe. As told by Josephine:

Tell me about your style and what brands you like to wear?

Whether in a pyjamas or an ankle length long sleeved dress, I more or less live in shiny silk pieces. Velvet slippers are common partners. Thankfully I have no social anxiety around wearing current  favourites again and again, which really makes my life easier. Boiling it down like this is also great when packing, which means a lot these days. Plus it leaves space for shoes and warm layers like my blue teddy coat by Phoebe Philo.

Has founding DEITAS influenced your style?

Yes absolutely, this journey with DEITAS is continuously widening my aesthetics and at the same time narrowing choices. I’ve learnt a lot about quality and craftsmanship by doing this. The times we live has maybe biggest impact on our style; although my hemline may still be ankle length, I’m thinking of ruling out black clothes this year.

What are you going to buy next?

I don’t know about buying, but right now my top three Google searches are mid-century vintage carpets, Jean Royére, and puppy’s for sale, although perhaps not in that order.

Which are your favourite beauty and skincare products?

I start the day with BIOLOQIQUE Recherccé P50 lotion and follow up with antioxidants and Créme de La Mer. For that fresh no makeup look RMS BEAUTY products are so good.

How do you detox?

With yoga and a vegetable based diet.

What are your plans for the weekend?

We are skiing and hanging out with friends and family. It’s soon time for fashion weeks, which means time spent away from them, so it’s the best possible preparation for a very busy time ahead.

DEITAS is soon to be carried by Net-a-Porter – get to know the brand here & follow here.

At Bukowskis

 

Those of you who dream of seeing the exhibition put together for TOTÊME’s AW18 presentation featuring sculptures and artwork by Eric Grate and Eva Lange are pretty lucky. The exhibition will run until the 31st of January displaying selected looks from the collection as well. So if you are in Stockholm, make sure to visit over the weekend!

Chic Ladies: Claire Thomson-Jonville

 

Next up is the ultra chic Editor-in-Chief of Self Service magazine and a mother of two, Claire Thomson-Jonville, who was kind enough to take part despite her crazy schedule during the Couture week in Paris.  As told by Claire:

Tell me about your style and brands you like to wear?

I pretty much have a uniform. A great coat and well-cut trousers from CÈLINE and a cashmere sweater or CHARVET men’s shirt for day with PRADA boots, great jewellery from CHARLOTTE CHESNAIS or REPOSSI, and a big smile and good attitude. A tuxedo for evening from my capsule collection I’m launching in collaboration with PALLAS this season.

Does being a fashion editor influence your style?

Yes it’s inevitable. I’m surrounded by so many options everyday which is why it’s so much simpler to have a uniform.

What are you going to buy next?

I’m more interested in buying furniture than clothes as I’m moving house. But I’m obsessed with YASMINE ESLAAMI lingerie, so probably more!

Which are your favourite beauty and skincare products?

TATA HARPER cleansers and masks, LA MER moisturisers, and RMS makeup.

How do you detox?

I eat healthy food all year round, I juice, and I enjoy sport. I swim practically everyday. I don’t really do detoxes or cleanses… over the summer I do a digital detox.

What are your plans for the weekend?

Swimming, furniture shopping, hanging out with babies, watching Netflix… cosy weekend before the show madness starts again.

Totême AW18

 

I am writing highlights for STYLEBY.nu after each day from Stockholm FW. Here’s my view on Totême:

”Totême’s second, very exclusive display was held at Bukowskis, a Nordic auction house, and the set featured sculptures by two Swedish artists, Eric Grate and Eva Lange, creating a chic context for equally stylish clothes. It might be Elin Kling and Karl Lindman’s strongest collection so far highlighting sculptural shapes paired up with sleek leggings and denims. To reach the elegance and sophistication of the Totême woman you might want to add to your shopping list the grey skirt, one of the puffy jackets, and it seems furry scarves will be a must-have in the fall as well as a denim jacket, witch was a first for the brand. The uniform was enhanced by shoes from Manolo Blahnik – as said, style in context at its best.”

 

So it seems that my shopping list for the fall has just begun to take shape, literally sculptural shape, and I might want to invest in more Manolos. Maybe boots… Love this collection so much – congrats Elin! x

You can read all of my highlights here and an interview with Jonna, Mikaela and Elina here.
