Moreso than in Danish fashion, Swedish fashion seems to fall into two very distinct camps: ultra-femme, floral and ornamental, and super-sleek, minimalist and occasionally quirky. Both of these particular styles can be done beautifully and look amazing on the runway; their juxtaposition is as refreshing as it is stark, giving us a dose of something new with every show.
Here’s what we saw on the Stockholm Fashion Week SS17 runways:
We’re talking lace, A-line silhouettes, close-fitting cuts and florals. No one does Swedish Midsummer Chic quite like Ida Sjöstedt and this season was no exception. Diana Orving‘s floaty prints came down the runway en pointe, making a statement about grace and strength.
We dug the vibe from Nhorm‘s weirdo-grunge to Greta Gram‘s structured sleek, and everything in between. Ida Klamborn‘s easy separates were tame by her standards, but still totally swoon-worthy. The professional take from Studio Heijne was a great use of color against traditional silhouettes.
