Royal style icon: I love the timeless elegance of Grace Kelly, Princess consort of Monaco. She always managed to look so composed. Signature scent: Kelly Calèche by Hermès. It’s mimosa, iris, tuberose and climbing rose with a touch of leather. I would bathe in it if I could. Summer cocktail of choice: Pimm’s of course! How will you be celebrating midsummers eve? I always spend midsummer with my family at my Mothers house. I prefer a quite midsummer as opposed to going to a huge party. How do you stay safe in the sun? Being extremely pale and having no ambition to get a tan. I wear SPF 50, big sunglasses and try to stay in the shade.

Royal style icon: Both Kate Middelton and Swedish Princess Victoria have an impeccable taste. They both are so very elegant and classy. Signature scent: Vetiver Tonka by Hermés it was love at the first scent Summer cocktail of choice: Kir Royal, can’t wait for summer How will you be celebrating midsummers eve? I am not a big midsummer party gal, so most likely I will be home with my family How do you stay safe in the sun? These days will not find me in the sun between 11AM and 3PM. Even though I don’t burn easily I really dislike the feeling of frying in the sun. Spotted at the beach I have two sun umbrellas just in case :)

“Inspiring, classy timeless.”

NOTES FROM OUR EDITORS ...and the Princess leaned forward and kissed the little frog who instantly turned into a handsome charming Prince dressed in his best bib and tucker. So the Princess got her Prince and they lived happily ever after... the end! Well, that is how it would look like in a Walt Disney movie; in real life our Swedish Princess Madeleine is going to marry her Prince charming June 8th. Luckily for her she does not need to kiss a frog, but a very handsome gentleman by the name of Mr Christopher O'Neill. However we do hope the ending will be the same as in the Disney movie, they live happily ever after! With this said we dedicate this issue to our Royal family and our Princess Madeleine in particular. We will take you on a Royal tour, guide you through Stockholm - home of the Princess and our capital. We will as always take you to an elegant and chic home, teach you all you need to know about the one thing we all need: A lovely bag! We will also give you a guide to healthy looking skin and...well we can’t give away everything here, now start reading! Xoxo, Jelena & Ann-Charlotte

Long live the Queen! BY GEORGE JAMES:

F

inancially, the walls are caving in for Londoners. Shops are being boarded up, libraries are being closed down and hospitals are getting smaller and more cramped. The homeless gather in underground passages by tube stations, hiding from the wet slushy, windy English weather. And, just like in the era of Dickens, the greatest irony is that just around the corner from these poor young men and women are beautifully kept streets of large white houses, with giant iron doors, and special golden coloured street lamps, and men with cigars that sip the finest champagne and eat nothing but quail.

ILLUSTRATION KRISTINA HULTKRANTZ 26

GEORGE the BARMAN


Royalty is a part of who we are

as a society, and the pomp and ceremony that goes with that is part of what makes us the people we are

When David Cameron came in to power it was on the back of the promise of creating what he called ‘the big society’. The idea was that due to the financial crisis that we all faced as a country, we should work together, in the way that we did during World War Two, to fight our way out of debt. Everyone would have to suffer, and suffer together! However, in becoming Prime Minister one of the first things he then did was reduce the tax rate from 50% to 40% for the countries’ highest earners, essentially giving the richest in the country a massive tax break. He had lied to us. Cameron is the son of a multi-millionaire, he is a multi-millionaire himself and he was a member of the Burlington club (an exclusive rich boys club who played drinking games together at Cambridge University) why the hell would he lose any sleep over cuts? But no one seems to have any problem with The Queen. The Queen costs us around 40 million pounds to keep in the manner to which she’s accustomed. She jets around the world to represent us, without our permission, and spends most of her time in an estate in Scotland, the size of a small country, and is in many ways, our number one benefit scrounger. So why then, is it that I love her? And why is she my favourite person to serve? Well, first of all you should know that when you serve The Queen you don’t actually serve Queeney herself at all...she tends not to go to the bar. What happens is that one of her trusted royal butlers serves her and you look at her from the other side of the room.

So essentially the only real insight you can have of Queeney’s world is through how her butlers come across to you, the colour of her dress and what she has to drink. The Butlers are quite literally the nicest people in the world. It’s their job to come to the bar and make sure that you know what you’re doing, which should be annoying, and would be, if it wasn’t for the way they do it. They are so gentle, polite and dignified about the whole thing that you actually long for them to boss you around more. They’re so well presented, in pressed tops and tails that you start to wonder if you actually aren’t under-qualified for the job you are doing and that it might be better for them to go through the basics with you anyway. They make you feel nicely subservient. Like the disciples of some strange cult, you get a sense of being part of something brighter, greater and older than you, something bigger than yourself. It’s like the feeling an English guy like me gets watching the Olympics or an old Bond film. It stops an Englishman, who is probably suffering from shame from the day of birth by virtue of his English nature, from being ashamed of being English itself. Royalty is a part of who we are as a society, and the pomp and ceremony that goes with that is part of what makes us the people we are. It may be ridiculous and it may mean taking instructions on making a cocktail you’ve made a thousand times before, but it’s who we are. So for The Queen I will happily take it. The Queen has no real power; she is probably outdated and doesn’t deserve the personal wealth that I imagine she has. But ‘twas ever thus’. And if there is one thing we English are, it’s stuck in our traditions. And she drinks Martini’s.

MAYLA Fashion designer Marlene Abraham, explains where she finds her source of inspiration for her stylish brand, Mayla TEXT BY ANGELICA HELLGREN

Tell us about your brand and the story behind Mayla For many years I ran a multi-brand store with international brands, but more and more I felt that I wanted to do something of my own with my customer in mind. How does your brand stand out from others, in the fashion industry? Mayla is for the stylish woman. Materials and quality is very important. I’m really inspired by vintage patterns, and each season, I develop my own patterns. What does your work process look like? I’m trying to work quite structured and usually I start by finding an interesting source of inspiration. Often, it’s been some kind of movie theme. Then, I decide materials, colours and patterns.

Five places where I find inspiration:

New York, Paris, Berlin, Deauville, Shanghai 30

Who is the typical “Mayla woman”? The Mayla-woman is in mid-career and travel a lot. She needs a well-functioning wardrobe that is easy to combine for work, dinner and then off for a drink. Crown Princess Victoria has worn your clothes; are you inspired by royalties? My biggest inspirations are early style icons like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Kim Novak. Since Mayla is stylish, I think it suits a royal wardrobe.

Facts about Mayla Mayla was founded 2010 Originally known for easy-to-wear silk dresses Collections can be found in designer boutiques around the world from USA to Japan, with a loyal clientele including celebrities and royalty.


Maylas top five styling tips Use garments of fine material that can be dressed up or down. For example: Wear flat shoes and a big bag to a nice silk dress daytime and then mix the same dress with heels, lipstick and clutch bag for the evening. Big jewelry is very in style right now and does lift up any outfit. Show legs or neckline. Never show both at the same time. Wear patterns or color. For a modern look to the party: Let hair and makeup be natural.

..my biggest inspirations are early style icons like

Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly.. 31

STHLM

in my heart Kristina’s Stockholm Love Affair

Pouf’s Illustrator takes us on a tour of her side of the gorgeous Swedish capital TEXT BY KRISTINA HULTKRANTZ PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOHAN MALMBERG ILLUSTRATION BY KRISTINA HULTKRANTZ

W

hen I was about 10 I told my mother, much to her despair, that I was going to move to her and my dad’s home country Sweden when I grew up. And I did. Sweden had always held an allure over me as a child, and still does now that I’m an adult, so I just had to get a taste for it. Though at first I had only planned on staying just for a while, I’ll never regret buying that one-way ticket. I’m definitely here to stay, and have always known so.

35


OUT & ABOUT

I’ll never regret buying that one-way ticket. I’m definitely here to stay, and have always known so So after finishing University I left my mother, father and little sister behind in the States and moved to Stockholm in 2008 and have spent the last five years falling more and more in love with this gorgeous city. It’s just big enough so it doesn’t feel like you know everyone and there is plenty to do, but small enough not to be too overwhelming. The city is packed with countless attractions, hidden treasures, culture, history, great eats, great shopping, and breath taking sites.... if you can stomach how horrifically expensive everything is.

When I first moved I didn’t have a job, had no friends, no real direction and only a pretty good grasp of the Swedish language. I only had my relatives to guide me; and they helped me feel at home right away. Since inner city Stockholm is really safe I could explore freely by myself too. I would take random buses or the metro to every side of town and just walk around different parts of the city. I’d get really lost, but it gave me a really great sense for how the city was sectioned off in its very different but all equally interesting sub-cities. After just a few months I had a job, a great group of friends, I was more confident with my Swedish and I really felt at home and in love with Stockholm.

I love all the old details you can find all over the city, such as this old telephone booth

36

I fell in love with Stockholm in a few ways. I would pack a newspaper or book, grab a ferry and head out to Djurgården to practice my Swedish, take a camera to Vasastan to imagine where my Dad grew up, put on a posh outfit, window shop and oogle the exquisite architecture of Östermalm, pack a picnic and enjoy a sunny day on the cliffs of Fredhäll in Kungsholmen, or grab a coffee and check out the quirky second hand stores of Södermalm.

What started as a love affair with a city later turned into an actual love affair. I met my life’s love Johan here, which made living in my dream city ever more dreamy. Now I’m definitely here to stay.


OUT & ABOUT

The panorama view from Fjällgatan takes my breath away... every time.

KRISTINA’S TIPS Save your pennies! Stockholm is scary expensive and you’re going to be tempted to treat yourself to great food, drinks, and something new and pretty for yourself. Don’t worry about having to speak Swedish or talking to locals. Everyone’s English is really great, and Stockholmers are surprisingly helpful and friendly. Use public transportation, I do. Buses are great for site seeing, the metro is quick and actually rather clean, and the ferries are a quiet calm way of exploring the city’s many waterways. They call Stockholm the Venice of the North for a reason. Some of my favorite places are a bit out of the way and not on usual tourist maps. I really just like to find a place of my own and steer clear of the popular spots. I love picnicing on Reimersholme with friends instead of popular Långholmen, taking a walk around Skeppsholmen instead of Djurgården, or exploring Tantolunden’s hidden away tiny colony gardens, which are just so cute.

37


OUT & ABOUT

Stockholm is built on cobblestoned streets. Keep your high heels at home!

38


OUT & ABOUT

what to wear ? Black! Just kidding. The stylish capital is notorious for its all black wearing residents, but I wear what I want and you should too. If you really want to fit in stick to classic staples and silhouettes, minimalism, or preppy styles. The Hipster look works too. Pack an umbrella and a jacket. Sweden is unpredictable at best; it can rain any second and shady spots and evenings can get pretty chilly. A cotton scarf is also a nice idea, great for chilly sea breezes or used as a blanket at an impromptu picnic. Flat shoes. I destroyed absolutely all of my high heeled shoes just a month after moving to Stockholm. The city is built on cobblestoned and uneven streets. Plus you’re going to walk a lot! Dress up! The city is so gorgeous and its residence’s very well dressed you’re going to want to be just as gorgeous, if not more

where to eat ? Not going to lie, Stockholm is horrifically expensive and I don’t eat out at all as often as I’d like. Twice a year maybe?! But here are a few of my favorites. Hötorgshallarna. Stockholm has great indoor food markets, I like them all but Hötorget may be my favorite. I love the mix of Swedish delicacies as well as many exciting foods from different corners of the world. Surprisingly affordable too!

Everywhere you turn Stockholm is surrounded by gorgeous waterways

Östermalms Saluhall: Another indoor market, but this one is so breathtakingly beautiful, exclusive, and full of the most amazing food stuffs Sweden has to offer. One of everything please! SOFO: South of Folkungagatan. There are so many great small restaurants, cafes, and bars in this area, it’s impossible to name all of them. Choose a street such as Skånegatan and hop from place to place.

FIKA Swedes are all about taking a break to have a cup of coffee and enjoy a sweet treat with a friend at any time of the day... or twice. Pärlans. The tiniest, cutest, retro sweet shop with the tastiest homemade caramels in the world. Svenskt Tenns Tesalong. Take a break from gushing over all the beautiful fabrics and other home goods to have a spot of tea. Try their fragrant house blends! Chokladfabriken. Chocolate Factory, enough said. Yum!

where to shop ? I’m not much of a shop-a-holic and prefer to window shop and save my pennies but Stockholm is a great shopping city full of huge department stores, high fashion, second hand/vintage, and about a billion H&Ms. Definitely don’t miss all the flagship stores of the big Swedish top brands such as Acne, Whyred or Fillippa K too. Nordiska Kompaniet. I feel so posh browsing this elegant classic department store. You can find just about everything here. Svenskt Tenn. I could look at Josef Franks’ amazing fabrics all day long. If the prices weren’t so high my apartment would be completely covered in Svenskt Tenn.

OUT & ABOUT

not to miss: There is so much to see in Stockholm but if you’re pressed for time make sure not to miss these favorite spots: Djurgården. “Stockholm’s Backyard” is great for long walks, and getting away from city life. Visit Stockholmers favorite Rosendalsträdgård for a weekend treat in their greenhouse cafe, you can even pick your own wildflower bouquet to bring home.

Gamla Stan. Stockholm’s Old Town may be swarming with tourists but it’s well worth a visit. It’s just so cosy and cute! Explore all the quiet, winding, quirky, history filled streets of the oldest and culturally dense part of Stockholm. I especially love the quieter east side of the island. I really want to take a night tour one day, want to go?!

Katarinavägen or Fjällgatan. The panorama view of Stockholm from these two streets takes my breath away every time I pass by. Perfect spot to enjoy a big ice cream cone and take in the view. Drottningholm. A visit to The Royal Palace and gardens may be outside of Stockholm, but it definitely must not be missed. I feel like a Swedish Marie Antoinette every time I stroll through the royal gardens. My favorite way to get there is by steamboat from Stadshuset. So romantic! 41


Greatest l ves and love tokens of all times BY Jelena Jankovic

A woman’s right to her shoes! Mr Big and Carrie Bradshaw, modern times’ most fascinating love story.

Their love affair kept us clinging on to our television sets for years. They were on and off for season after season, finally to get married, and what a relief for all of us that they ended up together! However, it is Carrie’s love affair with shoes that has will be remembered even more. Her addiction to her shoes turned the whole fashion industry upside down, and ever since then shoes have been popular. Who does not remember those Manolos and Choos? As a token of love for her shoes, Carrie decides to get married to herself in one of the episodes where she has lost her favourite pair of Manolos. She registers at Manolo’s making sure she will get her favourite pair back. Now that is what we call love!

I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes! Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 42

Taj Mahal

I would give my kingdom for you! In 1592 a Prince was born, his name was Shah Jahan (later known as prince Khurram). He was the son of the fourth Mughal emperor of India. In 1607 when the Prince was 14 years old, he was strolling down a market place when suddenly his eyes landed on the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. Her name was Arjumand Banu Begum, and she was the Princess of Persia.

Some say that the Taj Mahal appears to change color depending on the time of day, and in moonlight. The story is that the color change should reflect the mood changes of a woman. Prince Khurram died in 1666 and his body was placed to rest next to the great love of his life.The Taj Mahal has also been named one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World by Unesco.

The Prince was so completely infatuated with the Princess that he immediately asked his father’s permission to take her as his third wife. They were married after five years. It has been said that their love was the biggest love story in history. Although he had two more spouses, these were just a political agreement. The Prince named Arjumand, Mumtaz Mahal and it means “The Jewel of the Palace”. She accompanied him everywhere and together they had 14 children. Unfortunately, while giving birth to their fourteenth child the Princess died due to complications. The Prince was so devastated that on her death bed he promised her that he would never remarry and that he would build the richest mausoleum over her grave. After her death the heart- broken Prince ordered two years of mourning in the court. As he promised his love, he build theTaj Mahal as a token of love and placed her tomb inside. Taj Mahal took 22 years and 22000 workers to build and was at the cost of his royal treasury.

Napoleon and Josephine

“A passionate love story” click on the image to buy print

Even though they had not known each other for a long time, Napoleon had fallen madly in love with Joséphine. He proposed to her some months after and they were married 1796. Only two days after their marriage Napoleon had to leave home to lead the French troops in Italy. Stationed far away from home in the army, a lovesick and newlywed Napoleon kept sending letters to his beloved Joséphine hoping she would come and visit him. It was these love letters that still today remain some of the most beautiful love letters in history. Joséphine who was enjoying of a life of parties and adultery had no intention of leaving France to meet up with her husband. Her lies revealed after some time and when she realized that Napoleon knew her lies and adultery she panicked and traveled to meet Napoleon at the border of France. By this time Joséphine had fallen in love with Napoleon and the fact that she could lose him was terrifying to her. The story says that when Napoleon came back to France he was so devastated and heartbroken that he had locked himself in a room for days. Joséphine waited outside the door begging him to forgive her. Napoleon rejected Joséphine and got back at her by openly having many mistresses .They later divorced.

It is said that even though Napoleon remarried he never stopped loving Joséphine and he visited her often. Joséphine never remarried either and Napoleon was the last word that she said on her dying bed. His dying words were France, army, head of the army and Joséphine. 44

... “You to whom nature has given spirit, sweetness, and beauty, you who alone can move and rule my heart, you who know all too well the absolute empire you exercise over it!” Extract from a letter from Napoleon to Joséphine


A love affair with diamonds and men No woman has been more associated with diamonds and men than Elizabeth Taylor. But it is her marriage to Richard Burton that is considered one of the most iconic romances of our time. In 1961 Elizabeth Taylor met Richard Burton on the set of Cleopatra, but at that time they were both married to other people. That meeting was the start of a love affair that would result in their first marriage in 1964. This marriage lasted for ten years and was filled with passion but also fights, alcohol and drugs. During their first marriage Richard Burton would spoil his beloved Elizabeth with expensive jewellery. Some of the most famous jewellery that she got from Richard Burton was the 33,19 carat diamond ring,better known as the The Krupp diamond, and for her fortieth birthday she got a 69.42 carat pear-shape diamond ring that would later on be called the Taylor-Burton Diamond.

Maybe we loved each other too much? The Taylor-Burton diamond was at that time the most expensive diamond in the world. Since the diamond was so heavy they later had it made into a necklace that Elizabeth premiered at Princess Grace Kelly’s 40th birthday. Richard and Elizabeth divorced in 1974 and got remarried in 1976 again. The second time around their marriage lasted only for a couple of months. Even though they did not stay married it was obvious that their love for each other never died. When Richard Burton passed away in 1984 Elizabeth was inconsolable. Talking about their marriage Elizabeth Taylor once said: “Maybe we loved each other too much� and therefore they could not stay together. While they were married Richard continuously wrote diaries and love letters to Elizabeth, and sometimes he would write to her even when she would be in the same room. He kept writing to her even after they divorced. Every time they ran into each other the sparks were obvious to everyone around them. There is a debate if he actually wrote a love letter to her before his death, saying that the happiest time was when he was with her and that he wanted to come home. Apparently, this love letter was buried with Elizabeth and so we will never know..but what is sure is that their love for each other was as great and incredible as much as it was impossible.

THE TAILORED EXPERIENCE TEXT BY Ann-Charlotte LovĂŠn PHOTOGRAPHED BY Emelie Lager

I

n a house dating back to the 17th century, tailor Sushila Gautam and milliner Patrik Selling create the most wonderful suits, dresses, hats and hair accessories. We couldn’t have been more excited to check out this creative atelier, and we are totally loving the inspiring place Sushila and Patrik call home.

51


STYLE

Sushila and Patrik, tell us a bit about what you do.

S: I’m a dressmaker and tailor. I enjoy the differences between women and men’s clothing - the shapes, materials etc. There are always new challenges. P: I’m a milliner. I make hats for women and men, young and old. What I like about hats is that they are a kind of three dimensional textile sculptures. With hats, you can see results straight away.

52


STYLE

What is your work process like?

S: I always start with a first consultation. Sometimes the customer knows what he or she wants, sometimes they don’t. In that case, I’ll have to figure out what they want, look at fabrics, and brainstorm with them. If they know what they want, I start by taking their measurements. After that, we do a fitting in toile. We’ll do as many fittings as required to get it perfect. It can vary between three to as many as fifteen depending on the client’s body and their ability to make decisions. I really love the process from start to finish, and that you can take someone’s idea and turn it into reality.

P: The process in millinery is much shorter than in tailoring, since you work with the material of choice right from the start. There aren’t as many fittings as in tailoring, and we don’t work with toile. It’s a shorter process and you see the results quickly. Do you have a particular type of customer?

S: It varies a lot. I have very young cus-

tomers as well as old ones. Those who want me to design something are often interested in vintage fashion and like the old, classic look that they can’t get a hold of in shops. Many customers just want things like a suit or a dress. The garments my customers order can be everything from casual clothing to evening wear.

P: I have many different customers as

well, both 16-year old boys and girls as well as 85-year old women. Although, I regard my main target as men and women in their thirties. The millinery profession almost disappeared during the teen revolution in the 60s and 70s. Although, young people are starting to wear hats and the millinery skills are again back in demand.

53


STYLE

Patrik, when do your customers wear hats?

P: Well, if someone orders a wedding hat, they usually only wear it for the wedding. But I like to alter the hats slightly after the wedding or big event to enable the customer to wear the hat on other occasions. Why, do you think, is it that people don’t go to tailors in the same extent anymore?

S: When ready-made clothing first appeared, it was something new and modern. People didn’t have to wear homemade clothes anymore. Since then, people have gotten used to the low prices. 54

It’s has been difficult for tailors to compete with these prices. We have, on the other hand seen a change in the way people regard craftsmanship. Tailors used to be a part of the craft professions such as carpenters etc, now we are a part of the luxury industry. It goes hand in hand with brewing your own beer, baking sourdough bread and buying things from local vendors. People are starting to want locally produced products again. They want unique and hard-to-find things. It’s all about new ”kicks”, new ways to express yourself.


STYLE

There is no such thing as a standard size or standard body. People are not cast in the same mould

55


STYLE

Does that mean people are finding their way back to tailors?

P: Yes, Many have grown tired of the standardisation of ready-to-wear. There is no such thing as a standard size or standard body. People are not cast in the same mould.

S: It’s obviously easier to make clothes for a straight body rather than a curvy one. Because of that a lot of curvy women feel fat, when in reality they are beautiful. It’s really sad that so many people feel ugly because they don’t fit in to the standard model of ready-made clothing.

GLOSSARY TAILOR TERMS

SUITS AND COATS

Bespoke

Canvases

A custom made garment. Made from scratch to a customer’s specific measurements and requirements. The word dates back to the days when a customer ordering a garment would select and reserve a cloth that was then “bespoken” or “spoken for”.

The inner material used in a garment to give it shape. Canvasses include linen, horsehair, hemp, jute, melton and many more.

Fitting

The best quality you can buy in a suit. Usually a horsehair canvas, which is sewn between the lining and the cloth of the jacket. This technique prolongs the longevity of the suit by distributing tension at stress points such as shoulders and elbows, it also allows the suit to breathe and holds up to repeated dry cleaning.

An occasion when one tries on a garment that is being made or altered. By attending several fittings, the customer can make sure that the garment really is tailor made. A fitting is also an opportunity to express opinions on details, fit etc.

Made to measure / Custom made Half r-t-w. Garment made from a pre-existing stock pattern that is altered, usually by machine, to fit the customer’s measurements. Not to be confused with bespoke.

Toile A test garment used to try the fit before working with the actual cloth. Usually made in cheap material, as multiple toiles may be made in the process of perfecting a design.

56

Full Floating Canvas

Fused canvas The interlining is heat pressed (glued) to the wool of the suit. It is less durable over time and loses flexibility. Fusing is good if you want a price point suit and don’t plan on wearing it every day. This technique is not used by professional tailors, but in the r-t-w or bespoke clothing industry.

Half Floating Canvas A compromise between full and fused canvas. A half canvased suit uses a sewn in canvas piece in the chest and the lapel of the jacket, and is fused on the bottom part of the jacket. This allows you to have the canvas at the most important part of the suit, and keeps the price down by having less handwork.


STYLE

TIP

To test if the jacket is full-canvas, pinch the layers of fabric between the button holes. If you feel three layers it is full canvas, two layers is half canvas and one layer means the lining is fused or glued.

MILLINER TERMS Coiff A stiff, small hat. Usually fasten to the hair with hairpins, combs or an elastic band in the neck.

Crenol Synthetic straw-like material that is thicker than tulle.

Diadem A jewelled headband.

Fascinator Usually a large hair decoration on a band or clip with elaborate trimmings and decoration like a formal hat and it can incorporate a base to make it a miniature hat.

Felt Cloth made from wool, fur or hair, compacted (felted) by rolling and pressing, in the presence of heat and moisture.

Hat Item of dress worn on the head, from a word of Saxon origin meaning hood.

Milliner Artisan who makes and sells hats.

True romantic Take a look inside the home of designer Therese Zetterberg

I

f you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to meet a true romantic, look no further than Therese Zetterberg. Just take a look at the gorgeous collections of Zetterberg Couture and you’ll get a clear idea of her sophistication, charm, and romantic style. We’re huge fans of her pretty work, so we were thrilled at the chance to peek inside the home she and her fiancée share in the centre of Gothenburg, Sweden. We instantly fell in love with her light-filled apartment, and of course the impeccable style and romantic influences that appear in every corner of Therese’s home!

HOME

Your home is so charming and beautiful! Does your home reflect the same style as your wardrobe or as your designs? My home does reflect my style. I like vintage clothes and second hand items, especially garments inspired by the 10 and 20’s era. My home is a mix of 1900th century to 1950’s furniture. Almost everything in my home is old; from pillow cases with handmade lace, to the silver cutlery that I eat breakfast with every morning. I’m inspired by beautiful things with high quality in my designs, and that is also a obvious choice in my home. How would you describe your decorating style? I don’t have a single item from the big department stores, and that’s a relief to me as I don’t like furniture made by chipboard. I prefer well made furniture that will last an entire lifetime. My idea is to never throw furniture away, but to take care of the things I have and to add well chosen things that I’ll find in antique stores now and then. What is the hardest part of decorating? To me, there is nothing difficult with decorating, but if I where to mention something it’s finding nice lamps, fixing the electrical and pretty fabric-covered cords.

HOME

What is your favourite part of decorating? The best part is searching for the perfect thing at flea markets and antique shops. I love to go around looking for antiques and that’s what I spend most time doing on vacation. What is your favourite room in your apartment (and why)? My favourite room is the living room. It’s big and airy. I love the vaulted ceiling and the pretty, hardwood floor that has thousands of marks and creaks as I walk barefoot over it. I makes me think about those who’s walked over this old floor throughout time. The apartment used to be three times as big and the building is from 1873. I like history and would never consider living in anything newer than 1930. Where are some of your favourite places to shop for interior design, both online and in Sweden? I shop quite a bit at Bukowskis and Stockholms Auktionsverk, and also from private collectors who know what I like. A lot of my latest finds, such as the desk which is a baking table from the late 1700s, I find in Österlen. I really love going around to all the small flea markets in Skåne. You can find a lot of nice things there.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

A guide to Perfume Have you ever heard someone say? She smelt like a flower! Our way of sensing a smell is very powerful and a person’s scent can make a very big impact. A scent often makes you remember certain persons or events. There are those who claim we tend to fall in love with people because of their scent, well, I would tend to agree with that. BY Jelena Jankovic

74


There are some things to be considered while wearing and choosing your perfume Use your perfumes wisely and remember that there could be people around you that are allergic so go easy on the perfume. Generally, you should use perfume more lightly during the day. Perfume will mix with your body chemistry after some hours. Therefore, a perfume will never smell the same on two people, so be careful before rushing into buying the same perfume as your friends.

It is best to wait for a while after you have showered to put on a fragrance. This is because the natural body scent that helps the perfume last longer has been washed away.

Contrary to popular myth a perfume should not be rubbed between your wrists since that destroys the perfume molecules. And remember, it takes time for a perfume to mature on your body and develop into the right scent.

Add perfume where the body gets warm rapidly such as your neck and your wrists.

Don’t perfume your clothes, they will just smell old after a while.

If you would like a more lasting fragrance use a body lotion (preferably the same as the perfume) and then layer with perfume.

Another tip is to spray perfume (lightly!) into the hair.

Do consider keeping your perfumes cool and dark since warmer temperatures change the nature of the perfume.

Generally, you should use perfume more lightly during the day 75


HEALTH & BEAUTY

Short  History of Perfume The art of making perfumes originated in Egypt and was later further developed by the Romans and the Arabs. Perfume production has developed rapidly from the 1850s and due to new technologies these can now be produced cheaper and new kinds of notes created. Nowadays most perfumes originate from Grasse, France. For decades they have been growing aromatic plants there to extract their essences.

Perfume The easiest way to describe a perfume is to do it in different steps:

1.

Start from the intensity of the perfume, meaning how much perfume oil it contains.

2.

Determine which fragrance family it belongs to

3.

The formulas for popular perfumes are almost as well kept as the Coca-Cola recipe

76

Determine the notes of the scent

The formulas for popular perfumes are almost as well kept as the Coca-Cola recipe. Specialist perfumers are artists who have extensive training and knowledge in fragrance, and fragrance composition. The perfumers are the ones responsible for developing the perfumes.


HEALTH & BEAUTY

The intensity of a scent depends on the level of perfume oil it contains. The strongest is the Perfume Followed by : Eau de Perfume Then comes the Eau de Toilette The least intense scent is the Eau de Cologne. The level of pure oil extract determines the price of the perfume.

Perfumes are divided into fragrance families. It is the dominant scent of the perfume that determines which category the perfume belongs to. Since all families have different “personalities” most often we tend to choose perfumes from the same family.

The Floral scents a harmonized mixture of flower fragrances Some of the most common flowers in the floral scents are jasmine, lily of the valley, carnation and rose. The colorful orange and yellow colored flowers are referred to as “oriental flowers”.

green perfume: Eau de Sisley 2

Typical composite floral fragrance: Calvin Klein- Eternity

Fresh scents The fresh scents consist of navy, green plants and citrus. Some of these are Bergamot, lemon, orange and grapefruit, usually very popular in the spring. Typical Green perfume is: Eau de Sisley 2

floral fragrance: Calvin Klein - Eternity

The intensity of a scent depends on the level of perfume oil it contains 77


HEALTH & BEAUTY

Oriental scents

Typical oriental scent: Thierry Mugler- Angel

Perfumes that are described as “heavier� usually have fragrances with notes of spices, flowers and wood and are referred to as oriental fragrances. Typical Oriental fragrances are: vanilla, patchouli and tonka. These are best used during the autumn and winter. Typical oriental scent: Thierry Mugler- Angel

Chanel no 5 is one of the most famous perfumes in the world

78


HEALTH & BEAUTY

Compared to music a perfume note could be described as the music cord. The perfume notes simultaneously work together in harmony reaching that perfect scent. The different notes have a different intensity time. Each note consists of many fragrances. The notes are divided into three groups :

Top notes This is the most important note for the perfume sales. The top note is the first scent you smell when opening the perfume bottle and its aim is to make a first impression. This note will evaporate after some minutes and settles into the heart note. Some of the typical fragrances that can be found in the top notes are peach, cinnamon and ginger.

A women who doesn’t wear perfume has no future Coco Chanel

Heart notes The heart note is what determines the most intense and characteristic scent of the perfume. It connects the base and the top notes into a perfume harmony.

Base note The base note is the part of the perfume that will last the longest. It can take more than an hour before the base note will reveal its true character.

The Style of

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge What brands and styles does a modern princess prefer? With a baby just around the corner Princess Kate has manage to stay true to her style. With that well-defined waist Kate sure knows how to dress for her body and for every occasion

A

beloved child has many names. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Mountbatten-Windsor or perhaps what we usually call her, Princess Kate. Although Kate has many names her style is very well put together. It is almost like her style is honest in some way. She always looks comfortable, pregnant or not and with that said, with a baby on the way, Princess Kate has never looked better. Kate never leaves her comfort zone. Which in some cases can sound boring. However, in this particular case it is what makes Kate’s style hers. She is safe, and still surprising with her vibrant colour choices. She is fashion-forward enough and perfectly elegant in a modern way, just like a true princess of her time. Her style has evolved from safe and conservative into becoming a chic fashion icon.

In some ways, Kate has created her own royal style. Wrap dresses, shorter dresses, tight dresses and of course hats. What is sure is that we barely see her in trousers. I can understand that. With those gorgeous legs, why not show them? Kate is never afraid to be sexy, but in a classy way. A deeper neckline paired with a statement necklace is one of Kate’s go to fashion tricks. Princess Kate has an easy grace and she loves to mix high fashion with the high street chains such as Zara. What I love about her style is that she has not changed it during her pregnancy. It is still modern and classic enough, without getting dull. I cannot say it better than Max Mara’s creative director, Laura Lusuardi. “Kate is clearly a very confident, healthy woman who is comfortable in her own skin”. So, what brands does the princess prefer and what is significant for her dresses? How do you dress royal during a pregnancy? This, and a bit more can be found if you turn the page. 103

Hair and Beauty Kate is well known for her gorgeous thick, long, wavy brown hair. A couple of months ago she cut bangs and the world went crazy. Although, once again, Kate is one modern princess. She usually wears her hair down with natural curls or half up. Kate is not heavy on the make-up, with light tones she creates a natural look where her eyebrows are neat but full. She emphasises one feature at the time, eyes or lips, never both. For beauty products Kate turns to Dr. Bucko’s Belladerma.

STYLE

Accessories Like a true princess, Kate at some occasions wears hats. Many of her hats are designed by Philip Treacy. We have seen her in fanciful wedding fascinators as well as fedoras or fur hats. Although she is seen in stilettos, it is said that Kate loves boots. Knee-high, brown, black, leather boots are her favourite. She is more of a shoe gal and with bags; she prefers the classics by Mulberry. When it comes to jewellery, Kate is definitely a “less is more� type. It is common to see her in a pair of drop earrings.

The rise and fall of

It-Bags How is it that women spend so much money on something as simple as a bag? And what happened to the it-bags? BY Marina Milojkovic

A

bag can evoke memories, a bag can make you lucky as nothing else can. It is almost as if we have a relationship with our bags. It is the two of us against the world! It is as if the bag will protect us from anything bad, like a shield. A couple of years ago it was all about the it-bags. The bag that every celebrity was carrying, or the one that cost the most. It was not about the practicalities of the bag, it was only a status symbol. Luckily, we have left that behind. Almost. Of course, expensive bags will always be some kind of a status symbol. Now, and for some time, there has almost been a protest against bags. We see french style icons like Emmanuelle Alt carrying their phones, notebooks and wallets in their hands. Perhaps it is just a trend at the moment? Because, who can say no to all those gorgeous bags out there? The thing with bags is that everyone can have one. Any body type can carry a bag, you do not have to be tall or super skinny to carry it, it is not a couture dress. It is a way to access the big fashion houses and once you treat yourself to a love, a bag. It is hard not to do it again or get in a serious relationship with it. 125


STYLE

It is almost as if we have a relationship with our bags. It is the two of us against the world! So, what happened?

How is it that itbags somewhere disappeared from the fashion planet? Did it become all about the shoes instead? No, is is as simple as this, the it-bag was worn out and fashion became more about sustainability. A bag should not be trendy, it should be practical and timeless, that is how it is worth the money.

Do you need a bigger or a smaller bag? How much do you carry with you everyday? Do you want leather, suede or a cool canvas print? The options are so many when you do not care about what is trending at the moment. There are so many good options, the tote, the satchel, the clutch. Choose a bag that suits your life.

Skin food How to get that glowing skin? We met up with author, raw food chef and the woman with a glowing face Erica Palmcrantz -Aziz to get her advice on how to get that radiant looking skin. TEXT BY Jelena Jankovic PHOTOGRAPHED BY Anna Hult

Tell us about your philosophy when it comes to healthy living My philosophy when it comes to healthy living has always been that you have to find joy and pleasure in the food you eat. Your skin is a great tool that immediately shows you how you feel. If you are not feeling well in your body it will show up on your skin right away. You should see the food you eat as a tool for healthy living and a glowing skin. Pure and unprocessed food will give you more energy, a radiant looking skin, positive thinking and you will feel more at ease with yourself. Eating pure and healthy do require some discipline in the beginning, but in the end it will pay off.

Many of us today are battling with skin impurities and a lack of glow in our skin, how do we come about with that problem? Green vegetables are definitely a source of energy and glow. Eating more green leaf vegetables will make your skin soft, smooth and glowing. Make a habit of including it in a salad or in the morning smoothie.

If only talking about the skin, what is important to think about to get a glowing skin? Drink more water, and eat more green leafs and superfoods. Superfoods will also protect you from the damaging sunbeams. Dry brush and scrub your body on a regular basis. When scrubbing, make sure to use the natural body scrubs. Another thing to keep in mind regarding facial products and body lotions is to consider if these products are something that you can eat as well. If that is not the case, then you should probably not use it on your face and body. Including healthy fats into your diet will make your skin more elastic. Some examples of healthy fats are: Coconut oil, flaxseed oil, hemp oil, olive oil and cocoa butter, these are all products that could be used as body lotions.

Your skin is a great tool that immediately shows you

how you feel 133


HEALTH & BEAUTY

What is a good way to start a day with? Water! Drink a large glass of room temperature water, but make sure the water is filtrated. Today’s tap water includes a lot of chemicals and hormones and therefore it is good to filter the water. Ad some lemon juice, wheatgrass, chlorella and spirulina and you have a glass of elixir. If possible, try to not eat anything right away in the morning before you have gone to the bathroom. That way your intestines are ready to start to work and are not disturbed by yesterday’s food.

What are the products that you would recommend to be excluded or minimised in order to get a healthier looking skin? Processed foods, products including E-markings, flour, refined sugar and lactose, these are some of the products that you should try to minimise.

A perfect way to start your day! Green and Strong Smoothie 2 handfuls of spinach 1 tbsp hemp protein powder 1 apple 3 dl of water 1/4 avocado Mix in a blender

134

Could you name three skin care products you couldn’t do without? Coconut oil - I use it as body lotion, sunblock, hair treatment and it’s delicious to make a good ice chocolate with. Green powders such as spirulina, chlorella or wheatgrass. This cleanses us from within to increase our inner and outer glow. Honey - I massage it on to the skin and on to dry patches. I also enjoy the benefits of having a little lukewarm water and a drop of honey.

The perfect snack! Spearmint ball 10 dates 3 dl of sunflower seeds 10 drops of mint oil 2 teaspoons of spirulina Sweetened cacao nibs Run the sunflower seeds in the food processor until they are finely divided. Add spirulina and mint oil and run again. Add the dates and run until it gets the consistency of which you can make balls of. Roll in sweetened cocoa bits.

THE ROYAL SKIN TREATMENT How to achieve flawless skin

BY Johanna Millerhovf ILLUSTRATED BY Kristina Hultkrantz 136


You don’t have to be a royalty to get beautifully groomed skin. Here are the best tips that you can do yourself at home:

Daily skin care routinE Who doesn't want perfect skin? Going to a salon to get a facial can give great results, but it is the daily care of your skin at home that makes the biggest difference. Always clean your skin mornings and evenings.

Cleansing Customise cleansing products for your skin type. Such a simple thing can otherwise cause you to manipulate the skin in the wrong direction and is also a common mistake. Add a moisture mask 1-3 times a week. It’s needed more often in the winter, when the skin's top layer dries out.

Exfoliation A typical grain exfoliation can really make your skin shine. It also allows the moisturiser to go down deeper into the skin. Using a good moisturiser is very important to how your skin looks. If you want an extra treat, you can use special wipes that contain lighter AHA acids such as glycolic acid or lactic acid. Use the wipes as a regimen; one each evening.

If you want to bring out the heavy artillery; chemical peels for home use are great. Another thing that has good effect on the skin texture is exfoliating creams. These creams renew the top layer of the skin, causing the skin to become soft and fresh. Still, the absolute best product for the skin is serum, which goes deeply into the skin and is very effective. Serums contains mostly of active substances, they are a little looser and thinner in consistency, and thus cannot be used alone. Always apply a moisturiser over the serum, otherwise it makes no use at all. The skin will only get dry. Serums are packed full of either antioxidants or other active substances depending on the type of serum you choose. Serums penetrates the top layer, thereby affecting the texture and quality of the skin.

Sunscreen Most dermatologists agree that sunscreen is the most effective skin-care product for preventing wrinkles and preserving the skins quality. Choose a sunscreen that protects for both UVB and UVA rays, since the UVB rays are carcinogenic and UVA affect ageing.

SKINCARE AT HOME STEP BY STEP

1.

Clean

First, start by washing away eye makeup with eye makeup remover. Wash your face morning and night with a facial cleanser. Massage the cleanser into the face, in a circular motion. 1) Begin to circulate into the cheeks 2) go up against the forehead in circular motion 3) Go down to the chin. Rinse off with lukewarm water. Dab skin dry with a freshly washed towel.

TONER

2.

Pat toner into the skin with a lightly moistened cotton pad. Avoide the eye area. This will get the skin really clean. Pay extra attention to the nostrils, eyebrows, and hairline, since dirt tend to stick to these areas.

138


HEALTH & BEAUTY

”It is the daily care of your skin at home that makes the biggest difference.”

EXFOLIATE

3.

Exfoliate your skin one to three times a week. But no more than three times a week since the skin begins to compensate if you exfoliate too much. The same applies to rubbing the face vigorously with a towel. This can lead to pimples or the skin might begin to produce more sebum which can lead to oily skin. There are peelings that should be left on the skin as a mask, these works chemically. If you’re in need of an extra treat, apply a facial mask after exfoliating.

MOISTURISE

4.

Moisturise your skin and do not forget eye cream. Apply a pea size of eye cream, dab out two clicks under eye skin and pat to the outside eye, where crow's feet are formed. Apply under the eyebrow as well, and on the eyelid if you're dry there. Apply moisturizer on the forehead, cheeks and chin, and lubricate the cream. Finish with sunscreen. Sun protection is needed year round, SPF 15 is sufficient for winter months. You can also use a day cream with SPF. Avoid creams with SPF during the night. Gradually increase to SPF 25-30 during the spring.To preserve the quality of your skin, use SPF 50 in the summer. Especially if you have a tendency to develop pigmentation
