H&M joined forces with internationally acclaimed artist Jacob Felländer to create yet another one of their highly anticipated collaborations, its launch conveniently coinciding with Stockholm Fashion Week SS 2022. Jacob Felländer is known for his multi exposed photographs that give the viewer a feeling of being able to look at a subject from several angles at once. On 2 September 2021 H&M launched a collection of a fabulous array of separates, all created around Felländer’s art. The hope is that the project called The Great Escape will encourage people to explore and develop their own creativity through fashion, art and technology, to repurpose, recycle and re-use.
LESS IS MORE
One of the standout offerings at Stockholm Fashion Week SS 2022 is without a shadow of a doubt that by Stylein, with its wonderfully wearable, must-have capsule collection. Simple and quirky, flattering and easy-to-wear, each of these minimalist pieces deserves a place in the forward-thinking fashionista’s wardrobe.
Another diamond in the crown of Swedish fashion is House of Dagmar, based in Stockholm and founded by sisters Sofia Wallenstam, Karin Söderlind and Kristina Tjäder. The undisputed queens of ‘less is more’ House of Dagmar’s collection is a mix of feminine, sophisticated and contemporary design stocked at the iconic Galleries Lafayette. This collection consists of a delightful selection of utterly wearable staples in black, white, red and neutrals. We’re in love!

A nautical current ran through many of the collections with classic, forever-in-vogue stripes – pretty much regarded as the Swedish Summer uniform – popping up in many collections. From subtle pinstripes adorning coats and shirts to bold stripy dresses gagging for a stroll on the promenade, stripes have always been a perennial favourite with Scandinavians. House of Dagmar included various stripy pieces into their classic collection, equally Philippa Agaton’s boldly striped, ankle-grazing tunic is evidently one that’ll never be out of fashion, Hope included a classic double-breasted pinstripe suit into their repertoire and Re : Leased offered a sustainable version of the popular stripe.
LOUNGEWEAR AND SPORTSWEAR
Over the past 18 months loungewear and sportswear have become more prominent than ever as global lockdowns prevailed and although it seems the trend is waning a tad, many designers at Stockholm Fashion Week SS 2022 have opted to include into their collections pieces typically suited to relax in both indoors and outdoors.
We adore Filippa Agaton’s super elegant sporty-look co-ords that are as suited to relaxing at home as they are to a hard day in the office. Iggy Jeans ensures you’ll get noticed in their artfully embellished, fun creations, and so do Lazoschmidl and Charlott Vasberg. A delightful shorts-and-shirt ensemble that stood out is the lavender tie-dyed co-ord by Hope. This little purple sunset number will no doubt cheer up the dullest of days!
The focus was squarely on all aspects of the Fashion Industry’s enormous responsibility towards ethical practices and a greener environment. A considerable proportion of the contributors to Stockholm Fashion Week SS 2022 – brands like Remake Stockholm, Popswap, Arkivet, Gemme Collectives, ReRobe and It’s Re: Leased – hosted presentations, activities and talks focused on innovative solutions like recycling, re-purposing, swopping, remaking, embellishing and redesigning while at the same time showcasing their own creations.
Various brands impressed us and they all deserve a rightfully earned fashion thumbs-up: House of Dagmar for their well-rounded collection of easy-to-wear, stylish pieces, Zamina Scillasdotter for their dreamy, otherworldly creations, Stand Studio for their brave & bold colours and Stylein for their perfect little capsule collection of pieces you’d like to live in, go to the office in and go to the beach in. An honorary mention goes to Filippa Agaton, Emerging Designer of 2021, for a super impressive collection of pieces, each of which we’d love to have in our wardrobes!
As we bid farewell to Stockholm Fashion Week SS 2022, we thought we’d leave you with some wildly inspiring street fashion as spotted in and around Stockholm.
Goodbye until next time, hej då!
