Indicating Spring

Spring is around the corner and it’s high time to take geranium cuttings. The geranium or ”pelargon” as we call it in Sweden is easy to grow and lovely with its fresh green foliage and rich blossoming. Nowadays the geranium comes in many colours and shapes, but the Swede’s favourite is the classic Mårbacka. Pale pink has never been prettier!

Among the Scandi interior and fashion accessories 2017 there´s a lot of sophisticated pink. Right now, in the early days of sunlight and soft rain…I definitely go for pink.

The stylish limited edition

Since some years the Scandi brands have taken to launch a limited F/W collection. This Fall we see lots of limited editions, may it be a collectors item, like Gloria Solid Silver by Broberg & Ridderstråle for Klong. Or a sassy raincoat from Stutterheim…Let’s take a look:

Swedish eco-brand Klong celebrate 15 years by presenting an anniversary collection focusing on innovation and sustainability and the combo creative art + fine craftsmanship. Among the objects, Gloria Solid Silver by Broberg & Ridderstråle, is a given collectors item. Gloria is handmade in collaboration with acknowledged jewellery designer and goldsmith Rey Urban (1929–2015).

Fritz Hansen knows how to make their iconic chairs, like The Ant™ by Arne Jacobsen (1952) trendy and contemporary.  In Fritz Hansen’s limited edition Choice 2016 The Ant™ is dressed in a warm grey-dyed oak veneer with powder-coated bronze legs which lends a subtly weathered look to this sleek beauty.

Stutterheim goes NYC

Swedish brand Stutterheim has opened a shop in New York City, perhaps with the aim to spread the famous Swedish melancholy world wide? ”Through our melancholy we come up with new ways of seeing the world and new ways of being in the world”, Stutterheim claim. And then the brand add a great deal of humor to their handsome collection by naming their gear according to the rather stiff dress codes of some Stockholm areas. It is actually spot on. Södermalm, Vasastan…I am awaiting an Old Town creative but sensible parka!

Mrs Beige?

This Spring there’s lot of sand and camel in the Scandi style. Some brands goes as plain as possible, which is actually a clever shortcut to elegance. Like the classic Marimekko bag in such a dry colour it’s form and details are almost invisible. But imagine it with crispy white! Or immaculate black…Other Scandi brands adds a little touch of yellow to the laid-back and natural…The result is a stylish camel.
And Mrs Beige? Well, that’s the kind of in between colour I prefer as my basic colour this season.

Stutterheim Raincoats

”Melancholy shouldn’t be confused with depression. Melancholy is an active state. When we’re melancholic, we feel uneasy with the way things are, the status que, the conventions of our society. We yearn for a deeper, richer relationship with the world. And in that yearning, we’re forced to explore the potential within ourselves – a potential we might not have explored if we were simply content.”
Swedish company Stutterheim is spot on when it comes to embracing the Scandi melancholy. And their raincoats are a stylish alternative to gore-tex and velcro. Stockholm comes in six colours and sizes XXS – XL.
