Vårkoll Stockholm (Part 1)

While the weather gods seem to be difficult to decide if the winter is really over, loading Stockholm’s best shops up for the spring and the end still going and the meteorological seen already reached the capital. It is, as usual, a mixed bag and digestion, so we our site help you find the raisins in the cake.

On the right: espadrilles, Miu Miu, 1795 crowns on the nitty gritty. NK It can unfortunately noted that this spring is NK’s the same as before. NK It has never been more unexciting – upstart L’Ecole National exceptions – and “all the rest” in märkesväg is “everywhere else”. Paul & Friends is not better than good, so the only thing that can really recommend a visit NK Men Trend, which already has become really warm clothes. It shows Pour a cruel, if not colorful, spring collection, April 77’s collaboration with the guitar manufacturer Gibson, in the form of a limited edition collection, available only here and top international names like Neil Barrett, Jil Sander and Rykiel Homme has delivered own collections in absolutely world class. Then you can put up with that of “the Italian d: na” – D & G, Daniele Alessandrini or DSquared2 – is one of his best seasons this coming.
Nitty Gritty
Fashion temple Krukmakargatan may have in my opinion been undeservedly little attention here at our site. Especially undeserved considering that regular visits here have always been motivated and continues to be so even now when winter becomes spring.

Among the many goodies are new Japanese Lounge Lizard has great potential to become a sales success with a trendy collection. A retro-inspired ditto with pattern designs which may not reach Missoni heights, but still raises eyebrows is taken from GRP Florence and Baracuta celebrates 70 years as a brand with a completely different part of the store reserved presenting an anniversary collection, beyond the measurements of the garment made a little larger, is identical to the very first brand created. The most exciting story, however, has a French-Peruvian (!) Miscordia (French for “mercy”), whose two original French designers during a trip in Peru came to an orphanage, saw their logo and created an entire clothing line along it. There is no high-fashion garments directly, without a stripped – relaxed – collection without frills.

Lyxespandrillos from Miu Miu for nearly 2000 SEK pair is eye candy in the worst team, while APC shop half a stone’s throw away feels much more down to earth. Spring for the French brand with the music and the term “anti-fashion” as a guide in the creative work, has been the watchwords preppy sailor tennis and it permeates the entire collection, which is perceived as very uniform and uncluttered. Take an extra look at the short, double-breasted peacoaten in the colors blue and beige (2495) and the contradictory unadorned detailed cricket sweater (1295). And miss all means not to take part in this autumn’s maybe not quite as anticipated trend – the outer garment of the functional material – in the form of wind jacket in nylon (1995). New, exciting brand: Misericordia. Peacoat, APC, 2495 crowns. Jubilee Collection Baracuta

Speakeasy
When “far up the Rörstrandsgatan” became too secluded decided the gang behind the store Speakeasy to move to new premises that were “far, but still in the middle of the pulse.” For some time, are therefore the Artillerigatan 4 and gives a much better impression than the store Artillerigatan 2, best known for t-shirts to the prices and snooty attitude.

Brand range recognizable from the old shop, but has also been extended. Busnel, You Must Create, Samsoe & Samsoe, and soon also the first full collection from Our Legacy is available on the hangers.

Of the specially selected range of second-hand garments, much remains yet to unpack, but it’ll probably be a lick on it too, greets the owner couple. Until we recommend affordable shoes from You Must Create in different models (599-699), Converse and Gram Design should happen to feel trite. Shoes, YMC, 599-699 crowns. French with preppy blazer, 3495 SEK, in the foreground, APC

Le Shop
One of the most hyped early spring clothing drop’s been Marc Jacobs sneakers collection that is now finally in place in Le Shops skylfönster Birger Jarlspassagen. There is no cheap pieces we’re talking about – the cheapest model costs in 2595, the most expensive 3495 – and the shoes themselves are not particularly remarkable, but it is further proof of the Stockholm higher reputation as a fashion city to the collection at all is in place. And it sold one, often two, pairs a day, according to Le Shop.

In the rest of the range is Trovatas T-shirts whose motives stir up emotions and fine knitwear from the same brand and from Nice Collective, as usual in the upper price segment. Worst No one is white knitted ‘tennis jacket “for 3750 with extreme long arms.

Looking ahead, we can expect stockings from Gaspard Yurkievich and so should also be retail space downstairs a week already.

The least one can say about Le Shop is that when you think you have seen everything and you have only got a taste. It makes the store one of Stockholm’s most interesting – even in the spring! Marc Jacobs sneakers collection, 2595-3495 crowns. T-shirt with print “The Bermuda Triangle”, Trovata, 650 crowns. “Tennis Jacket” Nice Collective, 3750 crowns.

The AS greet spring welcome with Danish SNS as a new brand, with occasional pieces left from that of your reader so appreciated collection in collaboration with Nette Sandström (receiving sequel this fall, we may disclose), and with little else to show up . White shirts with colorful details in orange and turquoise from haussade Swedish Ulterior Motive, short-sleeved affordable (599) diton in different colors from the likewise Swedish Atlas Design and a very strong collection comes from the other side of the strait in the form of Won Hundred is also visible on the shelves. Before suppliers can take a breather shall also including Julian Red Jeans and shoes from familiar Gram Design, French Spring Court and Clark’s venerable fit under the roof of the store on Målargatan.

Knitted polo shirt, Trovata 1895 crowns.
Cable knit cardigan, Trovata, 1995 crowns.
Bags: Left: Vivienne Westwood, approximate price: 8500 crowns. Right: RAF by Raf Simons, 3100 SEK (decreased 50% from 6200 SEK).
Moreover, we recommend a visit to:
… Judith Mr Hornsgatan 65, which always has one of the city’s most exciting offerings, which mixes it up with newly produced garments and which is still by far the best among Stockholm’s second-hand shops. And, a not unimportant detail in this context, as we did after our trip out to Gothenburg stores: where very few garments costing over a thousand patches.
… Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair own store on Bond Street 46B. One of this spring’s very, very best collections are well worth to be enjoyed in full.
… Nearby City Mission Skånegatan 75 where gold grains are pouring in – despite an undersized men’s department – to, as usual, ridiculously low prices.

And just as the Gothenburg stores we open for part 2 when including Tjallamalla and shoe Coet within weeks received a considerable amount of spring news on the men’s side.
