I had never dared to wear a crop top and thought it was time to change that
One of Swedens most promising artists is Ji Nilsson – we dare say that her music doesn’t leave anyone untouched. Except producing music for herself she has written songs for other Swedish rising stars such as Julia Spada, Beatrice Eli, Marlene and Min Stora Sorg. Ji’s Eternal Flame has been in her possession for 10 years and was bargained at a brand she considered very cool and expensive at that time.

What’s the story of this thing?
– I bought this top second hand nearly ten years ago. When I was a teenager, Kookai (where the top originally comes from) was a cool and a bit more expensive brand which I usually couldn’t afford to buy, so when I found this one for like 50 Swedish kronor I was very happy. I had never dared to wear a crop top but when I found this one I thought it was time to change that. Since then, I’ve worn it year in and year out, in the summer to denim shorts and in the winter to suit pants, at home parties or at a club. It always works. I had a period in high school when I was obsessed with the sailor-look so stripes still has a special place in my heart.”
