When I Grow Up I Want To Look Like This

When I Grow Up from Fever Ray on Vimeo.

Ok, so I normally don't like to repost stories that I see on other people's blogs (I think it's laaaazy), but when I saw theses images from the Fever Ray video that Luce posted on Ink, I thought they were too beautiful not to share with everybody. In all honesty, Jimmy has been playing the new Fever Ray album on repeat for the past month, and I still haven't been able to get into it. While I think the songs are haunting and beautiful, Karin Dreijer Andersson's solo work just hasn't entranced me in the same way that The Knife does every single time I listen to them.  Nevertheless, Karin maintains the strong aesthetic vision set forward by The Knife,and  when I saw these images from the video for When I Grow Up, I was pretty blown away.  In particular, I can't get over Karin's outfit, which looks like a cross between Rodarte Fall 2008, and Ann-Sofie Back's Fall 2009 Exorcist inspired collection.  Today Christina and I were actually walking around the district looking for parts to make our own DIY dreamweaver skirts, inspired by Ms. Back, but maybe this is a better source of inspiration?  I don't know who designed this, or if it's just a costume piece made for Karin, but it's pretty incredible.  Watch the video!

Hey, thanks for commenting.

I love getting new readers it makes me even more excited to blog, although i do it just because i'm a bored teenager living in seattle. ergh.
Anyways, for the bleaching, you can always dilute the bleach with water. As for other chemical, I really don't know. I've only heard of bleach or chlorine being used.

Good luck with you DIY though :)

You're right! Its fully an Ann Sofie-Back/ Rodarte hybrid of amazingness.

I really really like the Fever Ray stuff I've heard, to me its like a Swedish Gang Gang Dance sort of. Maybe i'm partial to it because I never really got into The Knife, but this sucked me in with the pretty pretty costumes (though I did love the knife's bird-masks!)

Wow, incredible, thanks for sharing (I hadn't seen this before so at least your "repost" introduces it to more people like myself ;) ).

The video really is fantastic, I understand what you mean about the music though. I do like it but it doesn have the same appeal to me as the knife did. Instant.
