The minimalistic yet luxury aesthetic appealed to me as candy to a child
With an education in economy, Linn Hägglund is today working as a stylist and creative consultant. Her work can be seen in magazines such as Styleby, and every week she updates at her gal pal’s Elin Kling’s site The Wall, as a contributing editor. Her own personal style is admirable, defined by clean lines, earthy tones and lots of polo shirts. Luckily she wanted to share her Eternal Flame here with us at Make it last.
”This bag has been in the loop since 2009, when Phoebe Philo released her first collection – resort 2010 for Céline. The first time I saw it in real life was at Selfridges in London during the Christmas holiday of 2009/2010. The minimalistic yet luxury aesthetic appealed to me as candy to a child. A couple of years later I bought the bag (after some time saving…) and it is for sure one of the most worn bags ever in my closet. It’s chic and the perfect everyday bag if you just need to bring the necessities, yet the perfect bag for a dinner on town or a party (I often wear it without the strap as a clutch). And it always adds that special something to an outfit. I absolutely love it.”
What would be your general advice to everyone envying this thing of yours?
– If you are craving a really expensive thing, start to save money, stop buying unnecessary things (yes, we all do that…) and sell old things you don’t need. And voilá! Suddenly you will get the chance to buy that expensive thing you never thought was possible to buy.
