Monday 07 February 2011
Swedish designers experimented with earthy colors and 1970s-inspired silhouettes this season.
Diana Orving has placed herself on the Scandinavian fashion map recently, thanks to her flowy blouses and dresses and well-cut maxi styles.
Carin Wester's women are "cold and beautiful, but they would stab you in the back;" they presented creations inspired by 1950s film noir and Hitchcock movies.
Futuristic end time scenarios served as inspiration for Cheap Monday's collection.
One of Sweden's leading designer labels, Filippa K, went for a minimalist yet feminine look.
A "sea captain sailing up to the North Cap" gave Hope design ideas including furry boots, heavy knits, and capes.
Whyred's collection was labeled as "intense elegance" featuring interesting color combinations and prints as part of lean silhouettes.
New label Altewei Saome presented structural pieces for girls that "want to experience something new."
Camilla Norrback showed a heavily 1970s-inspired collection (velvet jumpsuits!).
The movie Nikita and the character of the same name inspired design duo Dagmar for their tough but beautiful pieces.
The most 'princess-y' collection came courtesy of Ida Sjostedt.
