Lykke Li has spoken about her first steps into fashion design, The Fader reports.

Appearing at an intimate playback session of her forthcoming third album 'I Never Learn' at Brooklyn's Converse Rubber Tracks studio, the Swedish singer opened up about her collaboration with label & Other Stories, owned by high street store H&M.

"I've done a whole line of black clothes for somber times," Li explained. "I'm a very bad shopper. I hate going to stores and I can never find what I want. Basically, I want to wear something that has no seams – like, I just don't want to wear anything. I'd rather go naked. So I always had to make my own stuff."

'I Never Learn' will be released on May 5 via Atlantic Records. Of the album, Li told NME earlier this year: "It's always about me and the guilt and the shame and the hurt and the pride and the confusion of being a woman". She also described the record as covering the "intense period" of being a woman in her 20s.
