For those of you who aren’t familiar with Scandinavian geography (which I suppose is most people), Martina is from Kalmar, a small town tucked away in the southeast corner of Sweden. I ended up in Kalmar several times when I was living in Sweden a few years ago, and was always surprised at how comparatively big the cultural scene was in the town. Culture, and in particular fashion, seems to be on some level a part of the dialogue all over Sweden, much moreso than in larger cities I’ve visited in other places around Europe and North America. It always piques my interest in exploring these small towns when I meet people like Martina. Maybe a tour of Sweden is in order for the summer.
