Filippa Berg – vintage queen

Make it last contributor Filippa Berg lights up the gloomy streets of Stockholm with her ever-inspiring vintage wardrobe. Her style is recognizable and unique, but at the same time always updated and fun. Filippa inspires us more than most notoriously planned fashion stories in magazines – a true beauty, from inside and out.

Altewaisaome – basics that lasts

The designer duo behind Altewaisaome, Natalia Altewai och Randa Saome,  presented their most office appropriate collection yet, and the tailored pants caught our eyes. It’s easy to forget to look at the great basics when watching a fashion show, but these ones stood out, and it was fun to see Altewaisaome mastering with standout basics. Black pants with different lengths and shapes are something to invest in and cherish for a long time. Classic pieces like those simply go with everything – year after year.

House of Dagmar – both fun and smart 

House of Dagmar is among the Swedish brands celebrating ten years – and they do it with obvious energy, leaving a first stage for a second, more confident one. The fall collection shows an inspired, rather bold part of Kristina Tjäder – in a good way. One of the best garments is a knitted sweater made from ecologic alpaca. Interestingly cut and with a sustainable material. House of Dagmar has genuine ambition towards a more sustainable fashion scene.

Back – versatility wear

After a crazy busy year, Ann-Sofie Back decided to present her ten year anniversary collection for BACK with an intimate dinner at Konstakademien. And consider how much she’s had at stake, the brilliance to the collection was even more impressing. To mark the jubilee, the collection has an air of cliché heritage; featured for exampel in various monogram prints. “Using fashion as a masquerade, concealing who you really are rather than revealing it has always played a big part in Ann-Sofie’s work”, the show notes stated. The prints aren’t only good for everyday masquerading, but also for versatility: use the gigant print textile as a cloth for your dinner table, as in the case of the presentation yesterday, or as a scarf for cold winter days – for yourself or your dog.


The second day of Stockholm Fashion Week reminded us of a few things: it’s easy to forget to look at the great basics; a vintage style is so much more unique than a style built on only the latest trends; a piece of textile can be used on more than one occasion.
