Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.
Today I’m supporting myself by wearing one of the nice Sofia Talvik tanks that are available in my shop. It’s quite a nice day in Stockholm today so I’m wearing it with a high waisted jeans and tulle skirt from one of my favourite brands – Forever21 and a jacket from silence + noice, bought at Urban Outfitters. As you can see I’m also sporting the white Sofia Talvik iPhone skin.
I just printed a bunch of cool tees, tanks and totes for the new release. Making the whole thing from scratch allowed me to personally choose the models of the clothes to guarantee a nice fit. I think most band merch are pretty ugly because the models and quality of the tees the printers can offer are hideous. I’d never wear one of those thick ugly tees even if I liked the band. So I decided to actually print my merch tees myself. The tees are made of cotton and are very soft. I used the screen print method with a print I designed myself.
I decided on three different models for girls. A basic black tee with a pretty low-cut v-neck in an almost “burnt out” thin cotton, available in S but fits S-M. A grey tank top with a low-cut round neck in a slightly longer length, available in S and M. And finally a dark grey oversized tee with a wide neck that fits S-L. All girl tees comes with a light pink print.
For guys I decided on a basic cotton tee in turquoise with round neck, available in S-M, and a summery grey tank in organic cotton available in S-M. All guys tees comes with a black print.
You can also get a stylish black cotton tote with pink print in the shop.
