In what ways is your personal style reflected in this selection?

I have a special love for anything that's not plain and simple. Elevated basics, asymmetrical proportions, ruffles, texture, fabric manipulation, and lots of layering – more is more. Lately, I've been heavily inspired by archival pieces, as well as large gowns and tulle skirts styled with corsets. It's currently a mix of romantic goth with a little dash of avant garde, but I prefer not to place my style in a box as it's very experimental and fluid depending on the season or which city I'm in.

When shopping for this upcoming spring season, what are the key things that you're looking for?

Longevity and quality – and preferably second hand! Most of the shopping I do is either vintage or second hand. I love the feeling of finding a bargain of a high quality piece, and instead of shopping for trends I look for unique pieces that resonate with my style. It builds a more long-lasting wardrobe and goes without saying a more sustainable option than buying new. Many pieces I own and have bought this way I've already managed to keep for years.

What are your three favourite vintage stores in Stockholm?

  1. Ettresex is a well-curated store so you generally know what to expect. They have several Japanese designers such as Rei Kawakubo and Junya Watanabe. I've bought my favorite Issey Miyake 'Pleats Please' pants at Ettresex that I wear probably three times a week.
  1. Re: Deco for vintage interior! I also shop most of my furniture second hand, so if you want to find a good curation of designer pieces but are too lazy to scroll Blocket, Re: Deco has several independent sellers gathered in one gallery.
  1. Sellpy is not necessarily a vintage store, but you can find very good second hand pieces online – if you know what to look for.

How would you define the perfect 'Julia Dang' look?

Skirt over pants, corset over a shirt, a fitted blazer, a perfect boot and a statement purse. Never forget the silver jewellery. The colour is probably black.

Which two items in your selection feel extra special?

  1. Sylvi Sundkler's corset: it's on my wish list, and I already own three of her pieces. Her designs are a personal favourite - there's amazing craftsmanship and quality in her upcycled pieces. A hidden gem in Swedish fashion.
  1. Maison Margiela's 'Tabis': I tried on my first pair 10 years ago but definitely couldn't afford them when I was 17 years old. They're now a wardrobe staple and will be a forever piece.
