Magazine madness #3: RIKA

Whenever I’m in Amsterdam and have a chance I always stop by the Rika Boutique. The label is incredibly popular, even with big Hollywood celebs I understand, but before I knew all that I already was a fan of her strong, basic, elegant style. I also love her trademark bags with the stars (also before I knew these were the most sought after). I have a knack for finding the trends you know… The label is high end so a bag is not something you would buy in a whim, however they do have an outlet store opposite the boutique. There I recently found one of my treasure of treasures: a large pink bag with the signature Rika stars. Above the outlet you can stay in Maison Rika: a guesthouse completely styled by Ulrika Lundgren herself and to my surprise and huge joy I even found a magazine called (you guessed it): RIKA. If you don’t have a copy you must get one, it’s truly a work of art and encompasses the Rika-style perfectly.   {Rika Magazine Spring-Summer 2012 – No. 6 / I bought Rika at Athenaeum, but I also saw the magazine at the AKO Amsterdam CS}
