I’m Ulrika Bolinder, the founder and creative designer of Bolinder Stockholm, leather bags for everyday elegance.
To see the elegance in life is my mission, whether it’s how we dress, how we talk or how we behave in general. Getting everyday elegance in life is a matter of rising to the occasion. Every day.
Loving traditions is one of them.
Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved traditions, and Christmas is the biggest one. Due to the current situation, I'll use the tradition as a shield this year.
We have a new family member
- Monty, named after the American actor, Montgomery Clift, a mix between Maltese and Coton de tolear.
I’ve been in love with the Bjäre area for many years. It’s a lovely piece of Sweden with a hilly landscape and a fertile agricultural land. This is where the first potatoes and strawberries of the season in Sweden grow.
I believe my love for New York starts earlier than I understand myself. Let me explain. My parents and I moved there because my mother signed a contract with the first so-called model mother, Eileen Ford, Ford Models Agency.
Who doesn’t around the rose-scented breeze of spring that invigorates the senses and cleanses the mind free of all toxic thoughts and energies?
It is during the morning routine I love to plan for the day in many ways. The key to elegance is to plan for enough but not too many activities.
San Michele is the villa in Capri, built by the Swedish doctor, Axel Munthe, around 1890.
Since I live in Sweden with lots of weathers, it means lots of clothes to match the daily forecast.
We should always strive to be our best. That considers some thought. First, what would be my best me? When do I like myself?
I have always been in love with Italy. But not until recently I had the chance to visit Positano.
For many years I watched my husband take the car Sunday evening for his weekly match in tennis at his local tennis club.
