Lykke Li is Dark, Quirky and Fun

Lykke Li, born Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson, is a Sweedish fashionista and singer.  Born to nomadic artist parents in 1986, she gained notoriety with her emotional postmodern-pop debut, Youth Novels, in 2008. Now she’s returned with her second and more bold album, Wounded Rhymes.

Check out Lykke Li’s single Get Some from her Wounded Rhymes Album.



Like her music, Lykke Li’s fashion sense is dark, quirky and fun. The artist admitted in an interview with the United Kingdom’s The Independent that “If I do wear heels, I like stripper shoes. But I’ll never wear them with a tight top, only baggy. I don’t do “inbetweenie” heels; they’re either tiny or huge. When I wear heels, I always end up taking them off and walking home barefoot.”

Lykke Li keeps it classic in lots of grays, whites and blacks.

This down to earth edge has made her one of Stocholm’s style icons, catching the attention of Levi’s Strauss & Co who featured Lykke Li in their Curve ID promotions.

Lykke Li was featured in international Levi's advertisements.

We anticipate her popularity and influence to grow in the music and fashion scenes. Keep your eyes peeled for this up and coming music maven.
