JFDR style q&a
Describe your style in 5 words: Star Wars. Japanese. 70s. Subtle. Annie Hall.
Favourite stores in Reykjavík: I like second-hand shops like Hertex, Spúútnik, Wasteland, and the Red Cross shops—all of them. I try to buy only second-hand. I also love Hildur Yeoman. She always has amazing things.
Favourite piece: I own a dress from Ellery that I wore on my album cover, but you can’t see it because the cover is just my face. That’s one of my favourites. I also own a lot of stuff from Hildur Yeoman that I love. I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to fashion, so I don’t wear a lot of patterns. But when I wear the Hildur stuff, I’m in a different mood. When I wear a pattern, I really wear a pattern, so I usually do pattern-on-pattern-on-pattern.
Something I would never wear: A crop top, even though I have a fabulous stomach. I kind of have the perfect shape for it but I hate the way it looks and how it makes your body look. Maybe I wore one when I was four or five in the Spice Girls era. I also get very cold on the stomach, so it’s for practical reasons.
Lusting after: This doesn’t exist, but I want a very nice, very warm jacket. I don’t want to wear fur and I don’t want to wear a puffer jacket. I can’t find it! I can’t find a fabulous úlpa. Maybe in purple or black or white or beige? That’d be very fashion-y but kind of old lady as well. That’s what I want. I’m on the hunt.
