Scandinavian design and Scandinavian brands are my favorite ones, because hardly anyone knows how combine simplicity with elegance and create a perfect design with attention to details. That is why a visit to the Fashion Weeks in Stockholm and Copenhagen this season was an absolute must for me. I guess the style of the German woman is very close to the Scandinavian and the truth is: if I had to choose for the rest of my life for only one label, it would be a Scandinavian one!
So I decided to explore Scandinavia and shot great photos, met stylish people and discovered great labels! So today, finally my favorite impressions and the latest trends from the north are online.
Ick bin ein Berliner
Who would have thought that our capital would become a trend metropolis?
In fact, I’ve seen a lot of looks, which I can’t describe otherwise than typical Berlin: simple, black, edgy, sporty, rave and a bit of grunge. This streetwear look is nothing but a Berlin uniform and so I was very surprised to see this typical look also in Stockholm (Hope, Stand & Dailyroutine)
varnish and leather!
This trend makes me VERY happy, because the vinyl or patent leather trend STAYS!
Honestly, this trend was never really gone for me, but it’s even more wonderful to welcome this wonderful trend on the catwalk again! Whether at Lala Berlin, Baum&Pferdgarte or By Malene Birger – my favorite material was everywhere and a true statement!
Two are better than one
More good news? The two piece trend is not over yet.
Whether it’s a school girl outfit or big business – with a two piece you’re always dressed well and trendy! Especially the oversized and bigger models (eg Rodebjer, By Malene Birger, Whyred, Lala Berlin) are essential in the coming season and belong to the closet of every trendsetter.
Green and Red!
I’ve notices this season the frequent occurrence of the two complementary colors red and (dark) green. Hardly a label (Lala Berlin, Rodebjer, Byredene Birger, Baum & Horsegarten, Whyred, House of Dagmar) had a collection without the two colors. On the one hand the two colors could not be more different statements and sent loud signals, on the other hand, it was a full strike and provided the necessary depth. All in all, the interplay between the two colors made the collection perfect and harmoniously. I’m enthusiastic and can’t wait to get a red dress and a green two piece.
A trend that is very popular in Germany is the utility look. But the trend doesn’t come very masculine as usual, but is shaped by the feminine body. Olive green, large, attached pockets and practical materials match perfectly with feminine contrasts and make a look immediately edgy. It is no wonder that so many labels (including House of Dagmar, Rodebjer, Henrik Vibskov) loved it. Practically can also look pretty good!
