How would you sum up Swedish fashion in a sentence?

Despite being aggressively fashion and trend-conscious, Swedes have a very practical approach to clothes. Pure clean and simple.

Do you have any favourite Swedish Designers?

Part from our own design I love Lovisa Burfit and 5th avenue shoerepair.


 What are your favourite shops to visit in Sweden (fashion, interior, food)?

Sweden is full of fantastic shops in different parts and cities. In Gothenburg where our head office is located you have For interior; Artilleriet, Market 29. For Food you have to visit Barabicu, amazing restaurant. Bakery: Alvar & Ivar ; Sourdough Bakery is a small neighbourhood bakery in Linnéstaden. They bake Requirements marked sourdough bread of locally produced flour, and some sweets like cakes and biscuits. For Music:   Other Long Way Skivhandel is Gothenburg’s largest second hand store for music and film. Here you’ll lose yourself easily a few hours in a huge and well-stocked selection of vinyl, CD, DVD, blu-ray and turntables. For Fashion; NK, Grandpa, Tara, Grace all these are life style shops with a mix of contemporary brands to high end brands. In Stockholm the range of stores is a lot bigger. One of my favourites spots are the MOOD gallery, which also have one of the best restaurants in town. Bouqeria.


What do you think makes Scandinavian style different to any other and what do you love about it?

Scandinavian is pure and Simple and that is also what I love most about it.

Do you have any Scandi style icons you can share with us?

I have..J Maja Ivarsson she is an artist and a true fashion icon. She is Rock chick and she is always well dressed for any occasion. 

Do you have any favourite places to visit in Sweden that you suggest our readers to go if they were to take a trip over there?

Than I Have to recommend Torekov in south of Sweden where we have our summer house, this place together with the whole archipelago at the west coast is a must when you travel to Sweden.


Are there any Swedish dishes you think our readers must try?
