Johan Bergelin: “Miami - a metropolis with deep roots in art and cultural diversity, surrounded by sunshine, white sand and the ocean. Referred to as Paradise Lost in the 1980s. During this period Hotel Mutiny stood out as a lush oasis within the apocalypse and hosted a free trading zone and a never-ending party with gorgeous models, kingpins, and legendary artists. The TV-show Miami Vice has been a major influence on fashion and includes Armani jackets in pastels, rolled up sleeves.”

ABOUT THE BRAND
Cosmetic cult brand 19-69 was founded by the Swedish artist and product developer Johan Bergelin. A twenty-four months long creative process with artisans in Scandinavia, France and Italy lead to the launch of 5 fist perfumes in 2017.
Johan Bergelin: “I have always surrounded myself with creative people, personal friends as well as professional. What has always inspired me is how these artists very often stand up for their values. They want to make a difference. This can be made in endless ways: a mural painting, a sculpture, photos or music lyrics. You may or may not personally agree, but it takes guts to stand up for your beliefs and who you are, and I do respect that. I think this is what planted a seed in me and was the beginning of 19-69. The name of the brand 19-69 is a powerful statement. The year of 1969 represents an era of freedom, tolerance and counterculture. It is also the year I was born and my way of putting my heart on the sleeve and say - This is real. This is who I am.”
