H&M Studio Vintage

H&M Studio’s SS21 collection is targeted towards those with a “playful free spirit who seek adventure and self-expression”. Inspired by the escapism and romanticism of fantasy tales and deep-sea voyages, this collection captures a carefree castaway feel. They use an electric colour palette of coral-orange, neon yellow mirror flashes of treasure and aquatic creatures, while neutral tones of beige and black keep the collection grounded onland. Their line also includes pieces from previous collections. Their collection will be available exclusively at Berlin’s Mitte and Stockholm’s Sergels Torg stores.

HOPE Stockholm

HOPE is a contemporary fashion brand that crafts progressive yet timeless designs using strong tailoring and attention to detail. Their items are meant to be explored in full assortment, rather than just one department. Their FW 2021 collection is  a study in the “(re-)definition of the term space and its influence on the self; personal space vs. public space, local space vs. global space – all of which, given the present circumstances, have been given new meanings and annotations”. Exploring dualities, their collection is made from pure wools, silk rayon velvet, hammered organza and soft satin. Check out more at the Stockholm Fashion Week website

Lazoschmidl

Founded in 2014 by Josef Lazo and Andreas Schmidl, this menswear brand is dedicated to fusing fashion design and literature. Each collection is developed from a script that determines the individual looks and respective garments. Scripts range from poems, to fictitious song lyrics, to short stories. Their FW 2021 collection is titled “CAKE” and it “ explores the visual identity that has been shaped by the way we dress - or have been dressed by our mothers“. The collection features cake paintings by Scott Csoke, corduroy ensembles, DIY denim, paisley prints and kid’s toy appliqués drawn by Humberto Cruz quote real-life memories. There’s also a return of the brand’s infamous ‘piss stain’ pants from Lazoschmidl’s very first collection entitled “Grand Poop” (2014). View it here

Rodebjer

Founded in 2000 by Carin Rodebje, this womenswear brand is rooted in feminist and environmental values. Rodebjer uses mindful consumption habits to make her cult favorite signature slouchy suits, draped caftans and iconic prints. For her FW 2021 collection, Rodebje presented looks based on the idea of a wunderkammer-a cabinet of curiosities. The collection includes a range of outerwear featuring early transitional blanket coats, winter cover ups in recycled wools, and re-down. There’s also an assortment of warm clothing such as knitwear, a nylon turtleneck, and a recycled wool coat with an exaggerated faux fur collar, referencing a 60s silhouette, in all black or jacquard pattern. And for the warmer weather, there’s an assortment of dresses, skirts, and shirting. Check out this collection here

Stylein

Stylein was founded in 2001 by designer Elin Alemda. The brand combines a timeless yet contemporary design expression using Scandinavian minimalism and fine fabrics. Their FW collection is based on a muse of who has left the springtime Swedish countryside for the vibrant Parisian pulse, where she lives her life in the evening and at night, rather than during the day. The collection embodies a vibrant and sensual vibe using long draped lengths in a monochrome and graphic color pallet with inexclusive fabrics with well-tailored cuts. See the show here
