Back to the 80´s

Revival of the eighthies! As I said before: ripped jeans. Also say hello to: shredded lace, sequins, shoulder pads, biker boots, lots of leather, studs and denim waistcoats.

Ripped jeans

I think ripped jeans are great! Clean rips, messy rips, big rips, little rips, all kinds of rips! I don't believe everyone can pull of this look, so be sure you can if you do. From what I've seen, it works out the best when you cut various parallel lines, more or less the same length, don't exaggerate. Or really do exaggerate and make parallel close cuts all over the place! In this case it can be necessary to wear black tights underneath.

Jag älskar Helena Hörstedt

I just love love love the Swedish designlabel Helena Hörstedt. She has the ability to create exquisite shapes, frills, origami foldings, intricate constructions, textures, knots, lots of volumes and using only black as her primary color. Her designs immediately caught my eye. Her designs are more than fashion, it's art! Ready-to-wear art. "I want my garment to be a fascinating visual experience as much as a usable. I want them to build a desire, continuously expand and to surprise the beholder." thus Helena. She certainly succeeded in that. Just look at the pictures below, they say more than all the words I just said.
