One of my favourite collections from Stockholm Fashion Week this week is with no doubt by Altewai.Saome. Loving the combination of clean minimalism and futuristic sharp detailing. The Swedish design duo Altewai and Saome are definitely someone worth keeping an eye on, see the whole collection here!
Once again I didn’t have time to attend Stockholm Fashion Week, instead I’ve had a freezing cold summery shoot outside and a few meetings, well next time I really hope to make it. I’ve looked through all A/W 12-13 collections from Stockholm I could find so far and here are the designers that stood out to me, clear favorites are Filippa K, Altewai.Saome and Carin Wester.
Stockholm Fashion Week is ongoing but unfortunately I didn’t have time to go there this time around but I might go to NY fashion week in September so that should be comfort enough to me.
Here are some looks from Ida Sjöstedt’s Spring Summer collection 2012, beautiful, seductive, glittering and very feminine, embroideries and mesh (loads of it). To me Ida Sjöstedt’s is so different from “typical” minimalist Scandi designs, less strict, but flirty, playful and feminine I’d say.
See the whole show below and notice the gorgeous donna nr.1 above and 3 in the show, Lina Sandberg, a young Swede I met in London last year, she rocked this runway.
I have to admit, I don’t know very much about this swedish designer Karin Malm, graduated from Saint Martins in London but I do know I love the silhouettes in her collection, the usage of different fabrics and the gorgeous belted coats. One of you my lovely readers called me a coat-kindagirl and I guess you’re right on that one.
I’ve posted about a few other designers from Stockholm Fashion Week that I liked, Rodebjer and Whyred on Flingly, there are still a few more to come.
As some people may know already I’m pretty loyal to Scandinavian brands, not only because I’m Norwegian myself but there are so many fantastic designers and talents up there which appeal to me through the simplicity, quality materials, and clean lines. Right now Stockholm Fashion Week is ongoing and I wish I was there, when I’ve looked through images from all the shows I’ll post about it.
