Heart to Heart: The Love-Struck
Sofia and Alice fell in love at the office. As they celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together, we draw inspiration from their passion, honesty and style.
Sofia Petersson & Alice Gillgren Rydé, partners.
TAKE US BACK TO WHEN YOU TWO FIRST MET!
“I have a very clear recollection of the first time I saw Alice. She came into the room at work and I almost immediately and strongly had the urge to get to know her, to have more of her. She laughed a lot – and loud! I love that about her.”
“We were colleagues at first, then friends. When I invited her to my yearly Easter dinner with my friends last year, we both realised this could be something more than just a friendship.”
DEFINE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THREE WORDS.
“Honest, festive, generous.”
TELL US ABOUT A DETAIL WITH YOUR PARTNER THAT YOU SECRETLY LOVE.
“I love Sofia’s mirror face, the one she does when she likes what she sees in the mirror. She gets a certain glow when she feels great about herself.”
WHEN DOES YOUR PARTNER DRIVE YOU CRAZY?
“That’s easy! Alice never closes a cabinet door. Isn’t that weird? If something was closed before you open it, then you close it again, right?”
I love Sofia’s mirror face, the one she does when she likes what she sees in the mirror.

TELL US ABOUT A MEMORY THAT YOU KEEP CLOSE TO YOUR HEART.
“On the last days of our summer holiday we went to Amsterdam together. We had been apart for a few weeks, met up at the airport and got on the plane. That flight was amazing, to see each other again and just talk, talk, talk. That’s a very sweet memory.”
