Despite the strong Scandinavian roots, Cheap Monday has conquered the world; the brand is currently available in more than 35 countries through about 2000 stores across the world. Ever since the time when the first 800 pairs of jeans with the characteristic skull logo hit the market, Cheap Monday has had a rapid growth and development while staying loyal to their signature denim goods and customer friendly price range. Smelling a tiny hint of rebellion, the Spring/Summer 2014 collection – that was shown during Stockholm Fashion Week last week – suggests confidence with an in-your-face aesthetic, channelling bold artists from the 90s and customers from the 21st century. Daring to take the coolest approach, the strong street-wear vibe didn’t fail to take over the collection, showcasing collage prints, prints on prints, patchwork looks, cut-outs, large details and gold – just like nowadays’ young crowd demands.

You guys might remember this post about the upcoming Bik Bok x MK & Ashley Olsen collaboration from April. The twins have just launched this new high-street collection which lets you shop their vintage-inspired cool for less than €100 – but only if you live in Norway or Sweden or you wish to shop online. As stated on Vogue ‘The collection reflects their own grungy-glamorous aesthetic with the luxe basics that their label The Row is famous for; layers of jersey, chiffon, angora and leather, and oversized accessories galore.’ There are a range of black structural jackets and skinny black faux leather leggings on offer, besides the tailored sweaters, silky blouses, roomy shirts and the boxy bags the Olsens have become known for. Over the past few years the Olsens have made their stamp on the fashion world, winning CFDA Designer of the Year for their work on The Row and yet by opening new doors for bringing some high-street flash available for the crowd. See the full collection here! Happy shopping!

What defines ACNE? Exceptional Scandinavian edge, quality, denim and effortless coolness. And what defines ACNE miniature? Stylish and pure designs, raw denim and cuts that fit perfectly on children while being both cute, playful and functional. With the release of their first ACNE Miniature collection in 2008, children were able to get that signature ACNE Studios catwalk look in miniature sizes! Since then, each collection proves just how special these clothes are. ACNE’s excellence much lies in Jonny Johansson’s creative imagery; the brand’s designer has decided to adapt the best-sellers of the adult collection for children almost 6 years ago and ever since its success is been growing. You can find the mini version of the statement jeans, marble print T-s and sweaters in blueish hues exclusively on the Internet much to the delight of the online-shop lover moms and older sisters.

Acne Resort 2014 (All images: Acne)
Acne Studios’ Resort Collection 2014 is androgynous with a little twist of shine, while comparing to the previous ones there has been a shift; we saw heavy leathers and dark boxy tailoring that has been transferred into more fluid silhouettes and softer colour palette. Natural materials, fluid satin, sequins juxtaposed in the silhouettes including draped evening wear, coats and utilitarian workwear that embraces movement and free creativity. The collection, as always, paid homage to the scandinavian heritage of oversized shapes, prime quality, and to the minimalistic approach of the slightly masculine tailoring with some coolness attached. Jonny Johansson once again, did something outstanding by redesigning his Stockholm garden in terms of prints. Bravo!
Die Acne Studios’ Resort Kollektion 2014 ist androgyn mit einem Hauch Glanz, während es eine Veränderung im Vergleich zu den Vorherigen gibt: Wir sahen schweres Leder und dunkle kastenförmige Schnitte, die nun in fließendere Silhouetten und sanftere Farben transformiert wurden. (more…)
