sneak peek: rigetta klint of slow fashion house

by anne


Rigetta Klint is the designer and creative manager behind the virtual department store Slow Fashion House. This Dane who now calls Sweden home has long been a proponent of “slow” — slow living, slow food, slow fashion — before the idea of “slow” was invented. She prefers to call it “old-school luxury.” To Rigetta, this means only buying the highest quality products one cannot live without. This is what her home is all about — from eating daily with the forks and knives she bought when she moved into her first apartment thirty years ago to using the furniture that has followed her through life. Even with this mentality, Rigetta’s home remains dynamic, a constant lab of experimentation and moving things around for a different feel. Thank you, Rigetta, and to Ditte Isager for the photographs!  — Anne
