Fashion writer, former fashion editor and model Emma Veronica Johansson and Swedish fashion writer and professor in fashion studies, Philip Warkander, are two of the most prominent and accomplished figures on the Swedish fashion scene. After several years in the industry they both have extensive experience within publications, digital journalism, fashion, beauty and modelling and lecturing, respectively.
The pair have now released a fashion book together, Sista Skriket, in English: Last Cry: A Book about Fashion, Death, and Erotica. The book is based on their letter correspondence, and divided into chapters like “Health, death ans sports” and “Men, men, men”. It discusses fashion in a wider context, and is ultimately a personal and intelligent philosophy on fashion.
The book launch party took place during Fashion Week Stockholm AW17, at the newly opened restaurant Ling Long in Stockholm. Vogue.com reporter Laird Borrelli-Persson was there and spoke to Emma and Philip. You can read her article “A Smart Take on Fashion by Two Stylish Swedes” here.
