Stockholm Fashion Week: J Lindeberg SS13
After a great emphasis on traditional tailoring and fabrics for A/W 12, it was refreshing to see J Lindeberg go back to it’s sport luxe roots. There is a great youthful yet elegant vibe in the collection as the brand expands it’s offering into womenswear. The Women’s side of the collection had some brilliant leather looks that landed on the chic side of rocker chick. The menswear had a similar aesthetic as the biker jacket was taken into the future in artificial materials, juxtaposed with a modern suit.
Shownotes cited the geometrical shapes created by nature as inspiration for the mixing of fabrics and colours. Much like Sweden’s endless nature and ultra modern society, the collection managed a near perfect balance of modern attitude and classical shapes. An inspired attempt for a brand that seems to finally have come full circle by adding a womenswear line that most certainly was not a side project. It felt organic and complimentary to the J Lindeberg man.
