about 2faced1.com

2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;

Persona 1:
WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

Persona 2:
WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!

 

A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND

A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.

The Robyn Destroyer X Indestructible Jacket!

Post date Mon 6 Dec 2010 4:49 PM

Robyn has always had a love for casual men's jackets so I thought we'd create a special Varsity one for her BODY TALK tour. Me and Mens Wear Designer Julia Hederus (thank's to Teres Sehlberg!), the woman behind HEDERUS and also the K-Swiss Hederus sneaker, got together and started planning. I told Julia about the Robyn Style anno 2010, the color scale, the fabrics, the feel and the deal, and Julia came up with a couple of sketches. We decided for one and then Julia started out with a plain grey NIKE Destroyer Varsity jacket for some serious Robyn cutomization! The turquoise arms were removed for these new dubbel folded ones, the jacket was shortened and the straps added. Then Julia cut out the silver letters, reminiscent of Robyn's old silver signature jacket from the 90's, herself. Some patches, and the stories that go with them, are still to be added when Rob and the jacket will return to Stockholm!

The pants here are done by Diagnos (a.k.a. our dear Gypsie's Mega Trip moma Linn!) also especially for Robyn 2010!

MTV on the Robyn STYLE!

Post date Tue 23 Nov 2010 11:26 AM

Mtv just spotlighted Robyn's Stage Styles (thank's to RobynBodyTalk on twitter who keeps me updated!) ! They listed some of my own favorites too! Only thing they didn't see the Philip Van De Roq earpice at VMA's, that's the really, really heavy thing in that style ;).  As I said before it's about simplicity, smart twists on classic items like a cut out jeans jacket, everything is supposed to go with everything etc. Robyn's main focus is on her performance not clothing.

(Wait a bit and I'm a tell you about the Nike Varsity Jacket you see over at MTV, Julia Hederus created it after my Robyn bye-laws!)

 

Another one of the D.I.Y. Robyn styles; here is the white version of the jeans-pocket-thingy I did. Just cut out the pockets of a pair of White 501s, wash 'em, use it over your tights! Then we have the beloved ACNE biker, under it's a chooped emerald green WOOD WOOD tee in thin cotton. The killer stiletto earrings comes from danish designer Vibe Harsloef. Lady is smashing in these bright colors!

And she'll always hold a special place in our heart!

We recently got to sit down with Robyn and talked about her VERY exciting plans for 2011, working with a choreographer to develop some of the fierce moves she's been rocking on tour, going back into the studio, what she likes to do on her time off, her country house in Sweden, and much more!

Check out our exclusive interview (above)!"

Robyn On Gossip Girl

Post date Tue 2 Nov 2010 9:14 AM

Robyn on GOSSIP GIRL (episode aired in Sweden 21 th of NOV), wearing the customade PHILIP VAN DE ROQ earpiece, like it's ment to be worn, with a white rose in one of the ends! We had a really nice white blouse prepared for fashionable times, but got to know that white wasn't a preferable color by the technical director. Changed conditions... as you know, Robyn wears more casual styles,  like the HERNANDEZ CORNET catsuit, the platform Timbs etc and these things wouldn't really fit in this enviroment of fiddlers...(that setting was new info!). So she didn't really have that many options with her, clock was ticking, there was no time to call any Agencies, so over skype we made a quick decision to cut the HERNANDEZ CORNET top (actually the one Pernilla wears on the 2FACED1 cover) Robyn used a couple of times, to this she wore a wide but short leather skirt by ANN SOFIE BACK, black trashy WOLFORD nylons (no foot) and WHYRED black platform heels. And then the PPVDR earring as the cream of the crop, a piece who really did this outfit! During the circumstances, I think it turned out nice, Robyn looks elegant but still in a punkish way - in her own way, in a context like this.

Robyn Senkveld Oslo

Post date Sat 9 Oct 2010 8:32 PM

Part deux! Robyn performing Hang With Me in the norwegian TV show Senkveld! She's wearing pattenerd nylons and over them white ones in lace both bought in Paris some year ago (I can't remeber where...). You don't really see the effect here, but it's a nice one with the doubble layers. Linn (GMT/Diagnos) helped me out with the top, and then we have the jeanspocketbelt I just cut out of a pair of jeans and washed, it's pretty flattering for the figure, and check out 1.20 for the ass-shot you get the idea!!! Bracelets and bone ring /Zanzlöza Zmycken, big round rings/Indiska, And finally our beloved platform-Timberlands, Robyn goes Bob, sry Rob, The Builder - crazy hot if I might say it myself hehe!

Live in Copenhagen, WoodWood tee added (chopped)

Robyn On Euro Tour - Stop Oslo

So the tour is on! It's not like we're doing anything spectacular, just styles that goes together on the same theme and works with a real persons needs on stage i e she can look good while dancing her ass off, actually dancing her ass off is the priori among them two! Ok with an minor exception...the shoes, but I made them high just for you to see her - Robyn is surely not the tallest swede out on the road!

Remeber the iconic Hood By Air AF1 from last year? Thought a buffalo-platform-Timb instead would suit Robyn; the american prepp (Hip Hop outdoor 90'ies style) of our youth on some club kid acid (of or even erlier youth...spice it up with "Kickers" flavour), I mean it's a 2FACED1 shoe, suits Rob like a hat inna box...öh hand in a glove, she loved the idea immediatly when I told her.

The level on the styles will increase, give me a little bit more time..we're working on it! This superdope catsuit was made especially for Rob by Hernandez Cornet, my main woman FoxAna laid it down smooth and sexy as only she can do, complete with her signature flounce. There are some transparent mesh parts alternated with ribbed fabrics - casual, yet hot! Jacket is Jeremy Scott. Accessory: vintage.
