Northern women in Chanel

Aside from the rustic styling of bonnets and milkmaid braids, lacework and peasant skirts, there’s more to be admired in this shoot starring Julia Hafstrom and Linnea Regnander. First of all, it’s beautifully shot on European countryside by Peter Farago. Secondly, it’s epic. The photos come from a project called Norther Women In Chanel, a literal title if ever there was one. It features 45…

Saved by the collar

Skinny jeans, a slouchy grey tee, a relaxed black jacket. It could all end up dully unnoticeable, the kind of outfit that fades into the insignificance of the masses. But it doesn’t. A solid silver collar is the insurance against boredom; the accessory that completely changes the whole look of this outfit.

Playing with fire: Rooney Mara

It wasn’t until I was reclining back on a long-haul flight to Stockholm, e-book reader in hand, that I decided to give Stieg Larsson’s Millenium trilogy a shot. To make my way around Södermalm’s landmarks without having Larsson’s seedy backstories in mind suddenly just didn’t seem an option. I was glad I indulged; it was a far better alternative to whatever films the in-flight entertainment…

Acne 60s shift dress: daily discovery

With the 60s fashion revival comes a desire for a wardrobe update that takes in (at least) two things: colour, and mod 60s-inspired cuts. But if you’re shopping for a curated wardrobe of high quality, long-life pieces that will take you beyond right now and into 2012, you’re better off resisting the psychedelic prints and opting for the classics. Perusing Acne’s flagship in Stockholm recently…

In house fashion magazines take note

When you travel through a country you always have all manner of gratis paraphernalia thrust before you. Nearly all of it is blatant advertising generally promoting a shop or a venue you’d be better off not frequenting. Every now and then, however, you encounter a rare gem of ‘freebie’. When in Stockholm that gem of a free print title comes in the guise of department…

The Stockholm uniform

Having spent time in 13 different cities this year I can say without a doubt that those with the strongest cultures develop something of a trademark sense of style – a uniform, if you will. In Paris that trademark leaves young Parisian girls able to do their eye makeup with far more collective perfection than anywhere else you can travel in the world. In Florence…

Smile in the city

Sitting in my Stockholm hotel room and taking in the BBC World Service I have to say it seems rather surreal to think that New York, like much of America’s East Coast, is in the grips of both the tail end of summer and Hurricane Irene. For the fashionisers affected, I hope that it all dissipates without damage and that life shortly returns to normal…

Backless with a reversed cliche

From the neck down – that’s generally how backless clothing works. Not in this case, however, where one self-styling lady takes high waisted summer short shorts and pairs them with a simple white tee. Reversing a summer cliche, this svelte figure has taken the tied-knot from the front, highlighting the small of her back instead of her midriff.
