It’s also a garment charged with emotions and expectations.
The swimsuit brings to life dear memories of childhood and long dreamy days at sea, of sand on sun-kissed skin and the bliss of an endless summer. Patti Smith has been truly brave and is very inspiring in many ways, she received the Polar Music Prize a few years ago and her emotional openness was fantastic. Inspired and slightly overexcited as we just opened our Pop Upstore and I'm finishing my design for summer 2016. You´ll never regret the things you did, only the things you you did not do. In every Icelandic town you have at least one swimming pool with natural geothermal water.
You are float around, comfortably wrapped in water.
Sometimes people gather in an isolated place in the countryside where there is a pool and float together.
One of the upcoming pop up float events is a floating concert at the oldest and biggest indoor swimming pool in Reykjavik.
Muscles relax, blood pressure drops and the heart lower its pace. This creates a meditative state and the mind calms down.
Like many Icelanders, a big part of Unnur´s life is in water as she goes to the swimming pool daily.
