GET YOUR COPY OF NUDA ←

 

Äntligen har min kopia av Nuda Paper kommit hit till London! Hela himlen vad vackert att få se sina texter i print. Är så avis på resten av teamet som kunnat träffas och stryka på omslaget ihop. Nuda är alltså ett indepentent magasin som Frida Vega Salomonsson startat och sedan värvat mig som editor för. Den är fullpackad av allt som är snyggt, rått och skavande. Sitter här och reppar mitt team i vår sweatshirt och bläddrar igenom vårt verk. Jag har bl.a. intervjuat två fantastiska brudar:

+ Roxy Farhat som är en feministisk video- och performancekonstnär vars konst blandar politik, kitsch och populärkultur med humor och dödsallvar.

+ Erika Linder, som debuterar som skådis i världens första film gjord helt av och om kvinnor.

Sen är det också 146 sidor, fyllda med en hög andra folk som en blir knäsvag för. Ni hör ju, in och haffa! Också ett shout out till vår badass art director Minda Jalling och swooniga konstredaktör Nora Hagdahl.

Finally my copy of Nuda Paper has arrived in London! Holy hell it is fine to see your text in actual print. I’m so jealous of the rest of the team being able to meet up and collectively stroke the cover. So Nuda is an independent publication that Frida Vega Salomonsson started and asked me to be editor for. It is jam packed with everything that is art, raw and itchy. I’m sitting here reppin’ my team in our sweatshirt whilst flicking through our work. Wow. I have amongst other things interviewed two badass ladies:

+ Roxy Farhat, a video & performance artist whose work mix politics, kitsch and popular culture with humour and graveness. 

+ Erika Linder, making her debut as an actress in the first film made entirely by and with women.

On top of that there is 146 pages featuring other peeps that will make most swoon. Well, go get it gurl! Also a big shout out to our art director Minda Jalling and art editor Nora Hagdahl.

Trodde för sjutton aldrig att dagen skulle komma MEN VAR 17 ÄR REGNET. Jag är dödstrött på 27 graders sommar nu. Kanske för att vara tyglad till kontorslivet känns noll lockande när solen grillar alla bara ben utanför fönstret. Men jobbet är bra! Ju mer bekväm jag blir i min nya roll desto mer energi hittar jag till att spendera tid på mina projekt utanför jobbet. Och de kommer ju alltid att vara de jag vill prioritera. Om jag ska kunna hålla kvar ett jobb är det livsviktigt att det tillåter mig att ha energi över för mitt skrivande.

Jag försöker fortfarande övertyga Daniel att vi ska flytta ut till någon arkitekturstuga i de svenska skogarna. Bara så vi kan spendera hela dagarna på att jobba för oss själva och inte tänka på Londonhyror alls. Tänker att jag sitter på någon pläd och skriver på min bok, för att bara stoppa när vi ska typ äta blodapelsin från varandras nakna kroppar eller något. Japp, jätterealistiskt. HUR SOM, över till mycket mer spännande saker…

Never thought I’d see the day BUT WHERE IS THE RAIN. I am so sick of summer now. Perhaps because being office bound is zero tempting with a sweltering sun and bare legs outside. But work is good! As I am getting more comfortable with my new role, I am also finding more energy to spare for all my projects outside. That’s crucial if I am ever to stay in a somewhere, to have time over for my own writing.

I am still trying to convince Daniel to move with me to a secluded and very architectural cabin in the Swedish forest. Just so we can spend all day working on our side projects, only to stop to eat blood oranges from each other’s naked bodies or something. Well, we’ll see about that. EITHER WAY, onto more amazing things…

Damer och herrar och allt därutöver, låt mig presentera magasinet Nuda Paper. Nuda är köttigt, skrikigt, konst och poesi.

Frida Vega hörde av sig till mig ett tag tillbaka och frågade om jag ville vara med som editor tillsammans med, Minda Jalling som Art Director och Nora Hagdahl som Art Editor.

Jag sitter nu uppe långt efter midnatt för att skicka in mitt andra bidrag. Holy fuck, jag är så exalterad. Känner mig så stolt över det jag skrivit, 100% swoon på dom jag intervjuat, och jag längtar tills ni får läsa det.

Den 12 oktober mellan 18-22 kommer det vara en upplevelsebaserad releasefest i Stockholm. Jag hoppas hoppas hoppas att jag kan ta ledigt från jobbet och flyga över. Om inte så är du här med tvingad att gå så du kan rapportera tillbaka till mig så att jag dör av avund.

Kommer bli guld, festen, men främst tidningen såklart. Följ här.

Well, ladies and gents and all in between, let me present to you the magazine – Nuda Paper. Nuda is brutal, loud, art and poetry. 

Frida Vega got in touch with me a while back asking if I wanted to join as an editor of her new baby together with Minda Jalling as Art Director and Nora Hagdahl as Art Editor. 

Now I am up way past midnight submitting my second big piece for it. Holy fuck, it is too exciting! I have honestly written two of my best pieces ever and I cannot wait for you to read them. 

On the 12th of October there will be an experience based release party in Stockholm between 18-20. I hope hope hope to be there if I manage to get time of work. If I don’t, you kind of have to just to report back to me.

five interviews on london, photography and sisterhood

Att vara något offentlig på internet betyder att ibland hör folk av sig för att få ens expertutlåtande på saker. Jag har ju turen att få vara på båda sidorna en del så jag tänkte att vi skulle kika på när jag intervjuat och blivit intervjuad den senaste månaden!

I’ve been interviewed and also interviewed a bunch of cool ladiez this past month. All in Swedish though, but either use google translate, or hire me to write more in english! ^^ lmcwiberg@gmail.comlinn mitt london londonsvenskar intervju

 

Först ut intervjuade LondonSwedes mig för deras serie Mitt London. Vi snackar om allt vad London är och betyder för mig och så langar jag en drös tips för nyinflyttade. Läs intervjun här.

 

För det andra skriver jag numera flera artiklar i veckan för Metro Creative, som ni vet, och det är så förbannat himla kul! Alltså kan folk anställa mig forever för att skriva om tuffa brudz och kulturella saker som händer i världen? Här är mina fyra favoriter:

När jag var i Kenya i februari mötte jag upp svintuffa Camilla Wirseen som efter att de senaste åren jobbat i Nairobis slumområde Kibera insåg att lösningen på flickors mens också kan vara det som tar de ur fattigdom och utsatthet. The Cup är projektet om systerskap, menskoppar och att ta vara på mänskliga rättigheter.

Frida-My är en 23-årig fotograf från Stockholm vars analoga fotoserier gjort mig knäsvag och full av avund. Jag var bara tvungen att intervjua henne för alla tips och trix och hemligheter bakom hennes foton. In och läs!

Streetwear har gått från att vara en subkulturell livsstil till en gigantisk modetrend. Jag pratade med Maria Pizzeria om hennes syn på denna kommersialisering och om varför hon anser att streetwear handlar om mer än vad som händer på gatan. Läs här!

babe of the month | sju smatanova of BySju

Babe of the Month is a monthly interview series created to promote inspiring women online.

Interview-with-hat-designer-Sju-Smatanova-BySju

For this month’s feature with an inspiring woman I got in touch with a fellow Londoner – Sju Smatanova. She is the founder of BySju, the brand making a name for itself in the fashion scene with its handmade hats. Just this week the Slovaki designer created headlines when Will.I.Am showed up to the Met Ball wearing one of BySju’s pieces.

So what sparked this passion for hats? And what is it like to run your own brand at 27? I grabbed this mega cool boss lady to talk about what she’s learnt from starting her own business, and why she made her granddad cry with a picture from Oxford Street.

 

I obviously think you rock, but for those unfamiliar with you, could you describe yourself and what you do?

I see myself just as a human being, like everybody else, eagerly wanting to do what makes me truly happy. And it just happens that some hours of the day I dedicate to one of my passions: hats.

 

 ”…when you wear a hat, at some point there’s going to be someone who’s going to chat you up. That’s for sure.”

 

I have this idea that those who wear hats are these creative souls who are about a million times cooler than the rest of us. Or what would you say wearing a BySju hat says about a somebody?

I’d like to think that people who wear hats are being themselves. They are bold; and comfortable in their skin no matter what other people think of them. This is my first impression of a person who wears a hat. I also think that someone who wears a hat is ready and open for an interaction. Because when you wear a hat, at some point there’s going to be someone who’s going to chat you up. That’s for sure.

 _F1B9759

Which one is your favourite?

My favourite is probably The Grey from the latest SHAPES collection. I like the fact that I can reshape it, so I usually wear it differently every day. I wear a lot of black and white, so grey is like a no brainer for me. I also like The Blue!  

 

Tell me about your journey of starting up your BySju.

5 years ago my grandfather gave me his first ever bowler hat as a gift. I started wearing it everywhere and really made a connection with it. It helped me to be more confident and a bit more playful with my fashion choices. I never wore a hat before but this time it was just so easy. It also had a very unique shape that was nowhere to be found and I then started searching for hat brands with contemporary design, but couldn’t find one that would speak to me. 

At the same time I was also working in the City, in finance and felt really disconnected with my job. I did not feel my work had value (even though I was paid well) and so all of this combined slowly formed the idea to start my own brand.

_F1B0752

So we know you are rocking it, but what are some of the challenges?  

I find the most challenging to actually sit behind the computer and do the work. I get easily distracted but I also realised that there’s no other way around it. Especially at an early stage of your business when you just have to do what needs to be done because there’s just noone else to delegate this to. I have learned not to fight it but understand that it’s all part of the job.

 

What are the most important lessons you’ve learnt since you started your business? 

To be dedicated and patient. Nothing comes easy and everything takes time. If you really find something you’re passionate about, go and do it. You really have nothing to lose when you try, but everything when you don’t.

 _F1B9748

If you could change something about the fashion industry, what would that be?

I wish the criteria some people in the industry are using to value others would have a bit more of the human factor in them. Because life isn’t always just revolving around clothes. Sometimes it’s also cars and cash (joking!). No but seriously, someone can say “well it’s just fashion, it’s how it works, get over it”, but I actually think it also applies to other industries [too], not just fashion. I just wish people were a bit more conscious and aware when dealing with other people, be it in fashion or finance or wherever.

 

London seems to be a big influence on your brand, tell us about that.

London celebrates individuality probably more than any other city in the world. So that aspect really influence my designs everyday. I also lived through a lot (good and bad) in this city and it helped me to peel down the layers I have built around me for so many years. It took me to great highs but also brought me down to the ground equally quickly. And I needed that to get to the bottom of my being, which influenced the message (or the soul if you like) of the brand, and that is self liberation and self expression.

 _F1B0783

What has been your proudest moment since you started BySju?

My grandfather once told me a story about when he was in London just after the WW2. He said he went to this huge street called Oxford street and saw all these big stores everywhere he looked. He said that one day if he wins the lottery, he will buy me a store on this street where I will be able to display our hats (he always referred to them as ours).

My proudest moment was last year, when our collection was displayed in the front window of Topman. I sent him a picture of that and he cried because he was so proud. For me, that was the best moment of my life.

 

”You don’t have to be the first one in what you do, you just simply have to be good at it.”

 

What advice do you have to young women who dream of starting their own brand?

To young woman but equally to young men I advise to always follow your dream! To be a bit more practical: do your market research first and well, find out about other brands and make yours unique. Differentiate yourself. But if you do that [whilst] following your heart, it will come naturally. You don’t have to be the first one in what you do, you just simply have to be good at it.

min allra första publicerade krönika

Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 11.00.40

Idag publiceras min allra första krönika. Stort va? Ångesten när Sandra bad mig skriva en, fast att det är det jag helst vill. Så jag tänkte att jag borde skriva om just det. Den finns att läsa på Metro Creative. Vore kul om du lade en kommentar om vad du tycker också.

Today I get my first personal essay published. Huge huh? I got slight anxiety when Sandra, my editor, asked me to write one even though writing pieces like that is what I want more than anything. So I figured I should write about exactly that. It’s up on Metro Creative now. Unfortunately it’s in Swedish but maybe you can translate it with google. If you do, let me know what you think.
