I am back! Finally! I have had one of the busiest weeks of my life and although this week is no better, I feel like I have achieved a lot and really been thinking about what is next for me.
So, yesterday, today and tomorrow are Stockholm’s fashion week and although I have not been going to all the shows (Work and sleep had to unfortunately come first) I have had a great time. I have so much to tell you about in terms of all the sustainable things I have learnt with what is to come, and more will be revelled in different posts but for now I want to show you some of the incredible shows I have gone too so far and get the ball rolling with being more updated and consistent with sharing with you guys.
So a few shows that I went to and really enjoyed were Newhouse, Busnel and Johannes Adele. They all showcased their AW18 (Autumn collection) and it was really nice. Now I am not going to lie to you, especially Newhouse and Busnel, were very typically ‘Scandinavian’ in terms of simple colours and not a lot of wow to it which is beautiful and very minimalist but not something I wasn’t taken away by. There were a lot of clothes that I really liked, I love that white is so popular and beige which always match with lots of different colours and its a lot of over sized coats which is great.
For the Johannes Adele, I decided to share a few pictures with colour because they were the ones I liked the most and to show their interesting collection of layers and fabrics, however a lot of the other clothes were black and grey. They also had the most wonderful silk scarfs that were used in the different outfits which said ‘Everybody loves the future’ which is brilliant! Everyone should love the future and do everything they can to make the future bright and healthy! I hope that is the theme for a lot of companies, to love the future and make a difference.
Newhouse had a very country feel to it, a lot of beige and brown colours and tweed, I am a very big fan of this type of clothing as I think its neat, simple and professional.
Busnel was very similar with lots of white too and I absolutely love the big coats, hats and sun glasses. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of clothing I saw and could see myself wearing but I wasn’t expecting such a lack of colour as this spring will be all about the yellows and blues but maybe after all the colour during the warmer seasons we might need to take a breath and have clean simple colours.
So after day one of fashion week I can see that this autumn will all be about getting in touch with our country side, looking like we are walking through the airport from our own airplane and dressing like we might bump into our ex. At fashion week I don’t get lots of chances to chat to people and ask about the sustainability side to the walks so bare with me as I do my own research to report back to you all!
I hope you like the pictures, I did a quick shoot with @emelie to get pictures of her fashion week outfit before we headed to the grand hotel, (which is so fancy and beautiful) we took pictures inside as it is -10 outside which is ridiculous and I cannot deal with that type of cold, but I wasn’t feeling very photo friendly recently so here is one picture of my outfit, with my ‘Only elephants should wear ivory’ T’shirt that I love and a pair of black jeans (as I came straight from work). I hope you like it and I look forward to learning more with you this month during my blogging every day! So please leave comments below of what you think or message me here or on Facebook with your ideas, views and questions!
