To avoid fashion week overload even before London Fashion Week starts, I thought I’d share some of my images from Stockholm Fashion Week in a slightly different way. As I was browsing through all my photos to find what to feature first, some colours started popping out and it became obvious I should present the SS12 Swedish shows to you chromatically.
Orange was completely ubiquitous and used in a variety of ways depending on the labels. Some like Cheap Monday used touches of it while others went for a monochrome silhouette or contrasted orange with other (even brighter) colours.
I always find myself strangely attracted to orange but I never wear it (apart from an ill-fated pair of orange combats back in my raving years / teens). I think now, rather than evoking clandestine parties in the forest, orange makes me think of Hermès and all things lovely and French.
