Scandi avant grade fashion pioneers & Other Stories announce a new capsule collection in collaboration with Swedish singer-songwriter, Lykke Li.
Born from a conversation had while Li was preparing what to wear before heading around the world to promote her critically acclaimed third album, I Never Learn, the collection will feature items mostly in black, with elements of white. Designed to include everything needed for a complete wardrobe, the pieces adopts elements of the singer’s dark and minimalist aesthetic and will include ready-to-wear, shoes, bags, jewellery and accessories.
“I’m a nomad and travelled my whole life so my style choices have grown out of pure necessity. I need to travel light but still feel empowered, there’s no space for frills or colours. I want to feel strong whether it’s falling out of a tour busy in the early morning, watching the sun rise in Paris or belting me heart out in NYC,” says Li.
“It’s been a dream of mine to have the perfect leather sac filled with the bare essentials, like a true nomad ready for business, and Stories gave me that chance. This collection is my version of that lifesaving sac and will be my uniform until the day I die.”
The visuals for the collaboration give a thrilling glimpse into what we can expect from the pieces: clean, simple, timeless lines, in the perfect shades to see you through the winter in style. The collection is available in store and online from Autumn 2014. Check out Lykke Li rocking the collection below.
