Norwegian Celine Irgens Aagaard is known for her clean, Scandinavian style with rock’n’roll and bohemian influences. Besides being a stylist and an appreciated blogger she’s the author of three books, former editor in chief of STYLEmag and designer of a collaboration with shoe brand Superga. This week Make it last asks Celine to share her Eternal Flame – something she wouldn’t want to live without.
Whats the story behind your Eternal Flame?
– This Borsalino hat used to be my father’s. My dad is a photographer, and when I was a kid he visited the Borsalino factory in Alessandria, Italy for a magazine he used to work for. He traveled a lot, and I still remember when he came home with this camel brown hat, even if it was too big back then I loved to wear the Borsalino. My father has been a big inspiration for me all my life, and ever since I got this as a present it has been a classic in my wardrobe that never goes out of fashion. Since 1857 Borsalino has created unique, soft and high quality hats and for the past 20 years the hat has been on a journey with me.
– This hat will always be special to me, since it’s been in the family for ages. It’s a timeless classic and it reminds me of my dad – and his journeys around the world with his camera. I love to wear clothes and accessories that have a story to tell. My mom and dad, my boyfriend and I have all been wearing the Borsalino for different occasions – weddings, festivals and fashion weeks. My 5 year old son will be the next one in the family to have it.
