    WAKING UP IN STOCKHOLM

    STOCKHOLM FASHION WEEK

    24-26 August, 2015

    Traveling is always a time for discovering new cool design settings, so it’s hardly surprising that our vacations and boutique hotels go hand in hand. Last week, as we jetted off to Stockholm, Sweden, for a few day of fashion shows, we teamed up with the super-stylish HTL Hotel Kungsgatan, possibly one of the best hotel choices in town. This meant not only lots of interior design inspiration, but that we were also walking distance to Fashion Week and could always get a good night’s sleep before the early morning shows. Perfect, innit?

    The HTL Kungsgatan is centrally located, right on Kungsgatan, but feels somehow hidden away from the bustling city streets. The vibe in the common rooms was always fun, young, and laid-back with a nicely buzzing atmosphere – especially at breakfast time. As an added bonus, the hotel is a local foodie favorite – and was one of our ours as well. Our room was cosy but well appointed and felt very trend-setting in its design, with a great attention to detail throughout.
    The edgy interiors and smart functions also allowed for a great use of the space, which always comes in handy when traveling with a bunch of bags. The feature that made us go from like to love? Definitely the gorgeous courtyard area (with top-notch furnishings!) where you can enjoy a ‘well-deserved’ drink, after your show-marathon. Seriously, could this hotel be any cooler?

    Starting off the week right, with what has become a bit my daily uniform this summer: straight-cut baggy pants, mesh Marni sneakers and my latest J.W.Anderson purchase. All in all, a perfect sports/fashion hybrid.

    A LOOK BACK AT FASHION WEEK STOCKHOLM

    Hej, beautiful Sweden! If you’re following us on Instagram, then you probably know that we took a trip to Stockholm Fashion Week this week to check out the best of Swedish design talents. With a packed schedule, it was a whirlwind 3-day-event in the city, filled with great shows. The (few) SS16 menswear collections were all about denim, sportswear, baggy pants and understated elegance. Stockholm seemed definitely full of distinctive voices – all yearning to be heard – but only a few really hit a commercial sweet spot. Once again, we couldn’t help but catch the effortlessly cool vibe where both style and function met, this time around, with all eyes on 3 of our favorite Swedish fashion houses.
