Tove Lo is known for her unapologetic approach to singing about drugs and sex (“It’s rare to make fun of female sexuality. I like to play with that,” she’s said) and possibly her disco tits. Now the Swedish synth-pop star has gotten together with her longtime friend and accessories designer Emelie Törling, who launched her line Leontine in Laurel Canyon in 2011, a mix of ruggedly embellished Western boots and vintage-tinged jewelry that “embraces the imperfect,” all hand-crafted in New York City.
Together they’ve created a capsule collection of un-basic jewelry inspired by Tove Lo’s music, more specifically the symbol found in the cover art of her second album, Lady Wood. It’s an enigmatic design that’s a variation on the yoni, a Hindi representation of the vagina, with a cross on the bottom. Lo had been looking for a way to eternalize the symbol and their friendship, which made the collaboration a natural fit.
“I’ve always created my designs with strong and independent women in mind who don’t follow trends and go their own way,” says Törling. “Tove is a muse for me, a best friend, and an inspiration.”
The gold-plated range that includes an ear cuff, ring and bracelet is made for “every ballerina savage and boy princess out there.” Tove Lo x Leontine is super-accessibly priced, ranging from $25 for the No Dinner Parties nose ring to $79 for the Bittersweet Glitter bangle bracelet. You can purchase it at Leontine’s online boutique.
