Twin-sister duo Miranda and Elektra Kilbey are putting Sweden's serious fashion cred on display.

Though 23-year-old singer-songwriters Miranda and Elektra Kilbey have captured the attention of electronica cool guys like Chet Faker and Hans-Peter Lindstrom, who produced their synth-heavy album Lucid Dreaming (out April 6 through A Deux), the sisters’ vintage ’70s glamour tempered with the simplicity of Swedish design has paid fashion dividends. Chloe creative director Clare Waight Keller
 had them DJ her Paris Fashion Week party last fall, they modeled Gucci’s prefall 2014 collection in a brand video, and the pair was in a CK One ad campaign last June.

1. Cheeky Slacks 

"My silk shirt is Gucci, which 
we love for its luxe vibe," says Elektra. "And these Acne [Studios] trousers are covered with a penis-and-wine- glass print... We love a little irreverence!"

2. In the Pink 

"Carin Rodebjer understands a woman’s body," says Miranda of the Swedish designer behind 
their blush pieces. "It’s old fashioned but still modern."

3. Top Coat 

"As kids, our parents dressed us in hand-me-downs, and now we see how special it is to wear something no one else has, says Miranda of the faux fur jacket she scored at a thrift store in Berlin. Elektra wears 
a trench coat from Swedish fast-fashion brand H&M’s eco-conscious collection with vintage Levi’s 501 jeans.
