While the Rützou collection was on the whole perfectly feminine, floaty and wearable, it didn’t make much of an impression on me… Especially after spending a little time pre-show browsing through The Chronicle, an absolutely beautiful magazine compiling breathtaking imagery and orchestrated by the label. Perhaps they should have handed out The Chronicle after the show, so as not to take the attention away from the clothes…

The very first show of the very first day also was one of my favourites from Stockholm Fashion Week so far. Simple lines with interesting details and striking colours and fabrics, an ever so slightly preppy style in bits… I wasn’t familiar with Rodebjer before, it is now firmly on my radar.

Minimarket is one of the shows I was looking forward to the most and it didn’t disappoint with a Cleopatra themed collection. While at times I thought they pushed the theme a little too far, I was on the whole quite taken by a really playful collection with great prints and very strong (if not slightly acrobatic) footwear.
Another highly anticipated show for me, Whyred took my breath away with pops of watermelon red against a neutral background and a sexy austere vibe reminiscent of naughty catholic school girls. With its French soundtrack, the show took me straight back home to Paris in the 60s.
