But Karin and Natalie aren’t just known for their discerning eye – they’re just as clued up on travel, books and more. We asked them to share everything they’re loving right now…

The Swimwear:

“My go-to is always a classic and timeless swimsuit from Celine. Post-beach, I add an oversized white cotton shirt and a sarong.” – Karin 

“There are so many options but I’m obsessed with everything from SKIMS at the moment – and the colour brown – so this bikini is a must-pack piece for me.” – Natalie 

The Beach Bag:

“Our tote bags are all I need for the beach. They’re so light and spacious and fit all the essentials.” – Karin 

“A new favourite for me this season has been this crochet Prada tote.” – Natalie 

The Workwear Staple:

“Blue jeans and a white shirt are a simple, classic combo. For good shirts, YAITTE is my go-to brand.” – Karin 

"I would always go for a suit – my favourite is from Toteme – with a tank top and some New Balance sneakers. I actually just got a pair of 550s in red." – Natalie 

The Jewellery:

“Chain bracelets and necklaces are my jewellery of choice. Tiffany and Lauren Rubinski make some of my favourite pieces.” – Karin 

“I’m a gold girl through and through. Most of my pieces have been passed down to me from my grandparents, but I do want to shout out the Swedish brand All Blues – I love its classy, simple pieces.” – Natalie  


The Book:

“Sista Säkra by Swedish author Lisa Christensen is a great psychological thriller that you won’t be able to put down. It’s a real privilege to say the author has now become a friend.” – Karin   

“One book I recommend to everyone is Dr Rangan Chatterjee’s The 4 Pillar Plan. If you’re interested in improving your health in a holistic way, you’ll love this book.” – Natalie 

The Fragrance:

"Musky and sweet, my signature scent is Cherry Smoke by Tom Ford." – Karin

“Le Labo’s Santal 33 is cult for a reason. Fresh, musky and long lasting, it’s one I’ll buy forever.” – Natalie  

The Escape:

“I can’t wait to visit London again – it’s the city I used to call home. When I’m there, I’ll be taking a long walk through Kensington Gardens, visiting the Victoria & Albert Museum – partly to see our scarves there – and be scoping out some shops on Oxford Street, which has been a guilty pleasure of mine since I was a teen.” – Karin 

“After a summer in a very cold Sweden, Italy is at the top of my travel list – specifically Amalfi and Lake Como. I’d also love to take the whole family to LA as I spent a lot of time there when I was younger – or I'd plan a weekend in Paris with my friends.” – Natalie 

The Travel Essential:

“Tights or leggings. My vibe is comfy and stylish, so I’ll always work them into any travel look. The 'Essential Leggings' from Filippa K are a favourite. It's such a great brand for quality wardrobe staples.” – Karin 

“A hoodie or sweatshirt – plus, a pair of sneakers – is my travel outfit of choice. I love that sporty-chic look.” – Natalie 

The Investment Shoe:

“My Hermès Chypre  sandals have been the best companion over the past few summers.” – Karin 

“I can wear my Prada slides with anything, but deep down I’m a trainer girl. I think I have around 150 pairs – most of them are stored in the basement.” – Natalie

The Summer Drink:

“It’s a toss-up between a Coke Zero or an apple daiquiri – fresh, refreshing and such a treat.” – Karin 

“No question, it’s an Aperol Spritz. It's a classic and is always a treat on a hot summer day.” – Natalie 

The Must-Visit Restaurant In Stockholm:

"Riche is the place to go. It's a French brasserie with Swedish influences and everything from the people to the food and the location is always perfect. Don't leave without trying the meatballs." – Karin

Sturehof just gets better with time. Right in the middle of Stureplan, it blends classic and creative influences, and serves amazing for seafood. The venue has just had a huge renovation too, so you can now move from room to room throughout the night." – Natalie

The Ritual:

“After exchanging the city for the country around a year ago, I’d have to say fresh air, nature walks and a good night's sleep have become my non-negotiables. This summer, a daily ritual has been going for a swim with my fiancé. I feel like it restarts my whole system and helps clear out any negative or tired energy.” – Karin 

“I’m obsessed with the Swedish forest. Nothing makes me feel (or look) better than a couple of hours spent there. I also try to walk 10,000 steps a day and drink a lot of lemon water. Having a consistent skincare routine is also very important.” – Natalie

The Brand Favourite:

“My current favourite is the 50cm olive green striped scarf. The colour just speaks to me. It’s just the perfect shade, which is one of the hardest things to nail when we’re designing – on silk in particular.” – Karin 

“I love our paisley scarves. I think they’re so chic worn with basics. I personally love wearing mine with loose-fit pants, a tank top and an open shirt.” – Natalie
