‘The Documentary and A Dream’ is J.Lindeberg’s fourth biannual book, visually narrating fashion fans through the Lindeberg way of life.
Featuring contributions from industry heavyweights including Olivier Zahm, Andreas Carlsbecker and Julia and Hannes Hetta, ‘The Documentary and A Dream’ is produced in super limited edition, with each large-format tome hand-finished in a factory in Northern Sweden. Overseen and curated by regular J.Lindeberg collaborator Jörgen Ringstrand, a cracking cohort of photographers, artists, writers, illustrators and stylists have all been invited to offer their interpretation of the Lindberg philosophy. From i-D contributor Hannes Hettas’ ultra-civilised take on the spring/summer collection, to Andreas Carlsbecker’s more abstract Mystic Forest snaps and Eric Guillemain’s ‘Memories of a Summer’ story, featuring The Exhibionist Issue coverstar, Tati Cotliar in the Lindeberg menswear, the book offers a unique insight into the rejuvination of the blossoming Scandinavian brand.
In London yesterday, the folk at J.Lindeberg threw open the doors to their fabulous four-storied Victorian house in Shoreditch. Oozing Scandinavian style, guests took to the rooftop to feast on pickled herring, thumb the ultra-glossy pages of the book and take in the scent of the floral spread (courtesy of i-D’s own Jocelyn Lloyd and JamJar flowers), with not an Ikea uplighter in sight! As the fashionistas chattered, rumours were abound of the arrival of a J.Lindeberg store on UK soil and their womenswear collection spreading beyond their Scandinavian stores. Lots to look forward to from the Lindeberg massive!
To flick the fabulous book in full, head here or hop over to Scandinavia for one of the flagship stores to be in with a chance of scooping an super-limited edition copy.
