"Dare to wear you lingerie like shining armor! My ode to legendary Viking Princess Alfhild is fiercely feminine, featuring sensual straps that frame your bold beauty. Comfort meets sustainability in the deep-black recycled microfiber fabric. The real eyecatchers, however, are the sinuous faux-leather ornaments that refer to a Viking's richly-decorated weapons. Slay it, shieldmaiden! "

FW21 style collection Shieldmaiden

"To get into the role of Viking princess Alfhild, I channeled her anger at not being allowed to choose her own love. My mother is my heroine. Raising 4 children by 2 different men, mostly on her own, she made many sacrifices to always be there for us. But she had chosen love, and it made her incredibly strong. That's what I thought about, posing on the beach: the indomitable power of love.

I had a rocky start. Born a month early, I spent a week in an incubator, struggling to breathe. But my mom says I was a born fighter. 'Maylo' is my second name; it means 'winner' in Hawaiian. I still fight for what I believe in; I never mindlessly follow the crowd."

Princess Alfhild
The pirate princess

T his is a story of a princess in an ivory tower... with a twist! Because this princess, rather than ride off into the sunset with her prince on the white horse, became a formidable Viking pirate, leading a fleet of rebel pirate girls. Princess Alfhild was the daughter of Siward, King of the Goths, who locked Alfhild in a high tower guarded by two vicious snakes. Any man who wanted to marry his fair maiden had to first defeat the reptilian monsters. If he failed, the suitor would be killed, his head displayed on a spike for all to see. Well, many literally lost their heads over the gorgeous princess until Prince Alf, son of King Sigar of Denmark came along. Young Alf was a Viking, as cunning as he was fierce. He swathed "his body with a blood-stained hide" to make the snakes crazy with bloodlust and thus lose control. After getting rid of them, Alf triumphantly claimed his princess. Yet, King Siward, as old-fashioned as he seemed, declared that if his Alfhild was to marry it would have to be her own 'free & decided choice'. Alfhild decided to go out and slay her own dragons. She ran away from Alf and her palace and set sail for a life of piracy.
Soon, Alfhild commandeered her own ship, her crew consisting of young female rebels also keen to stay single. The Pirate Princess and her girl gang were so successful that the Danes sent several expeditions to stop their plundering. One of these hunts was led by Prince Alf, and by the time he tracked down, Alfhild was waiting for him on her ship, sword in hand, a helmet covering her blond curls. The face-off was epic, because each side fought to secure their future: Alf fought for a wife, Alfhild fought for her freedom. Who would win?
