Have a Swedish fika in Isabell Stolt´s favourite café & shop the latest sneakers in Stockholm.
1. What is the best moment of the day?
A really interesting lifestyle. Honestly.
2. What inspires you?
Beats. Melodies and harmony. Music that attracts my ears and my feet. Driven, enthusiastic and charismatic people. A female singer with a harsh voice singing beautiful medlodies. Sisterhood, even if youâ€™re not related. Men, the ones who act strange and give me ideas and inspiration to start choreographing. Seeing how well my friends are evolving in life with themselves and their work.
3. How would a good friend describe you?
Funny, stubborn, creative, spontaneous. Some would also say too focused.
4. Your lifestyle in 5 words?
Always something on my mind.
5. Which books, newspapers or magazines do you read?
"Dagens Nyheter" has a lot of different sections and a lot of good information about cultural events. And also Swedish "Elle" magazine.
6. Which films or directors blow your mind?
Sofia Coppola makes beautiful films, she has an eye for details that others lack. Lost in translation, Marie Antoinette and Virgin Suicides are a few of my favourite movies. I like Wes Anderson, what an amazing talent he is and I like his kind of humour.
7. What do you love about your city?
I actually love how this city makes me feel sometimes. Like I’m having the time of my life. Like I’m really on to something good and I’m here because I made it happen. A feeling of freedom or some kind of romantic dream.
8. Which brands do you fancy?
I like comfortable shoes from Adidas and I usually buy them at Sneakers’n’Stuff. They have the best service and they know everything worth knowing about sneakers. I like comfy clothes and I love Monki’s style on tee’s and dresses.
9. What sound fits best to your city?
A bus passing by and the sound of water against a boat, and at the same time a group of young people with the same kind of style discussing in a true Stockholm accent what places to go that evening.
10. What smell would describe your city best?
The smell of a new overprized dress in a fancy bag while you’re passing a trashcan where someone has left a beer? Haha, I don’t know really. I believe Stockholm is more a feeling than a smell - the feeling of hanging out at a great place and having a good time but still wondering if there is more fun somewhere else..we call it the "Stockholm-Syndrome".
11. What are your favourite cities around the globe?
Visby, the capital city of Sweden’s, and I believe the world’s, most beautiful island - Gotland. I have visited Berlin and New York for only a couple of days and I really want to spend more time in both of them.
12. Who is your hero?
Any person who really believes in what he or she is doing and really don’t give a damn shit about what anybody else thinks, especially if they’re trying to make a living out of their art.
13. Your life philosophy?
I fall in love with different philosophies and mottos every now and then depending on what I want to hear and what I need to hear.
14. What does NECTAR & PULSE mean to you?
I love the idea and you have done such a great job. I wish you a huge success.
