HOPE Trousers by Space Matters

Columbine, Nike and I teamed up with our friends at HOPE for a series of self portraits at our office. We dressed in our favorite trousers from their spring collection, I choose two pairs of suit trousers that I look forward to dressing down with tees and loose shirts when spring finally arrives.
Check out my sisters’ Columbine and Nike’s picks here. And thanks HOPE for the opportunity, keep doing good things in the name of diversity, creativity and self expression <3.

Lisa Corneliusson
Wearing Forty Trouser and Box Tee (tied in the back)

“I think progression in personal style is often about the smallest of things; finding versions of what we already wear to tune into our personal ideas of perfect. A white t-shirt can be everything, a nice pair of suit trousers too. I love to pair the two to keep it casual.”

Columbine Smille
Wearing Move Trouser

“I am always in the search for the perfect pair of black pants with a high waist and the Move trouser is exactly that, something I’ve been looking for forever. Also, the slit at the end of the leg is a great trick for a flattering elongated silhouette, which I love.”

Nike Felldin
Wearing Marfa Trouser and Alias Tee

“My kind of trousers for spring and summer are loose and light and made from breezy fabrics. I’ll style them it with grey sandals for an even more relaxed look.”

La Bomba Jacquemus, directed by Gordon von Steiner and creative direction by Simon Porte Jacquemus.

It’s hard to not love the world of Jacquemus, no? Impossible not to think of easy breezy warm winds in the sun somewhere in the south of France. Having found myself a bit tired of Instagram, Jacquemus is one of the accounts I still read/browse on a daily basis. Except for the perfect vacation inspiration, I am very fascinated by Jacquemus’ ability to reconnect to his own childhood and personal life through the collections and the visual identity of each and every campaign. This always intrigues me, when the ideas are so deeply rooted in something personal that they create a world of it’s own. And his childhood nostaglia is so beautifully conveyed in everything he takes on. Just beautiful.

As for the spring/summer collection, it is inspired by the memories of his mother walking around the villages outside Marseille and, according to, a photograph of her walking through the port one summer, wearing a scarf around her head, a ceramic earring and a pareo tied around her. Together with film director Gordon von Steiner he created the video for the ss18 collection, as seen above. The perfect dream and I want to wear it. Press play and enjoy.

Dreams with Mikaela

What’s on your mind right now?
Miink’s “Who Are You?” (Spotify it!).

Who’s visual expression makes you feel overwhelmed?
I’m obsessed with Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. First Episode, 13 minutes in, you get to see visuals of parallel universes – that gives me goosebumps!

What do you dream about?
Falling in love.

What’s your relationship with time like?
I believe in a multiverse and have a theory that we travel between parallell universes subconsciously.
I imagine that this happens when sleeping or daydreaming, and that it takes less than one second to commute to a (slightly) different version of me – far, far away.
I don’t want time to end, and worry about this a lot, trying to figure out possible explanations of eternal life and endless worlds.

What’s your preferred space?
By the ocean, a hot summer day in the Swedish Archipelago. Magic.

Who would you love to work with?
I believe that you don’t have to search on the other side of the globe to find brilliant minds. I love to work with individuals living right here in Stockholm. Especially the younger generation, as they are the future.

Do you feel a sense of belonging in your field as a creative?
I do. But this haven’t always been a given fact for me. When growing up I didn’t think that I had a creative mind and thought I was going to spend my life working 9 to 5 or doing something similar to what my parents do. So, becoming a stylist isn’t something I’ve always dreamt about. Now I can’t imagine doing anything else.

What makes you excited about work?
Working with women.

Name a defining moment in your life.
When I decided to study fashion. Dad <3 helped me apply for a program he found on Södertörn University, only hours beofre the application closed.
On my first day I met a new friend, Emilia, who gave me a push in the right direction, telling me about a stylist course that resulted in my first job as a stylist assistant. A few years later that led to an interview at STYLEBY Magazine and I started working for Columbine Smille.

What’s the biggest risk of your life?
I guess the only thing I risk is my relationships as I give work related things too much space in my mind. Sometimes I get too caught up in work that I forget to check on the ones I love. It breaks my heart thinking about all the times I’ve been absent on the phone when talking to someone that means the world to me. Like my mom.
