The Swedish designer shares her favorite wardrobe staple.

Anna-Sara Dåvik is a Swedish designer who has a degree from both Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. After finishing her studies in London, she moved to Paris and laid the foundation for her eponymous fashion label (today called MME A–S DÅVIK), a brand that offers unusual jewelry and protruding creations. One of her most famous pieces to date is the monogrammed fake fingernails in gold and silver. MME A-S DÅVIK is today based in Stockholm.

Anna-Sara Dåvik’s Eternal Flames have been with her for more than a decade and are just as cool as qualitative.

What’s the story of this thing?

– I bought these Martin Margiela Tabi Boots in 2004 when I was working in London. An edition in thin gloves leather, a low cut boot with the significant split toe.

Why is it special to you?

– They are of such good quality. A beautiful object and amazing comfort – perfect combination. The leather is very dark and they have aged so beautifully. These shoes has been worn more than anything else I own. Martin Margiela was a huge inspiration for me when I started, mainly for the poetry, the tactile poetry that was such a big part of what he did. It had such a soul. Such beauty. I have never bought anything else that I have loved and worn so much.
