Nordic News – February 2017

I can now say that Spring is on its’ way, YAY – Although I know it may not look that way for those of you in Iceland – hope you’re all keeping safe in the heavy snow! But, weather aside, February has been a busy month for us, full of fashion weeks, street style galore and more new products and collaborations than you can shake a stick at! So, I’ve rounded up all the best bits of February for you (there’s A LOT of them), so enjoy!

  • As if we weren’t impressed enough, the well-known Swedish sneaker brand Eytys has taken a step further, away from sneakers, because last week they introduced their first dress shoe – Kingston. You’re going to want to take a good look at these and then buy them, trust us.
  • Offices don’t have to be ugly and they don’t have to be stressful, they should be places of beauty, tranquility and productivity and & Other Stories are making this a reality one perfect object at a time. Their new stationery/accessories line will be released in March and we are already queueing up for it!
  • New star restaurant of SW1 in London is the wonderfully stylish and tasty Aster by Finnish chef Helena Puolakka. As part of the restaurant’s enticing and delicious menu, there is the Nordic answer to all your afternoon tea prayers! For ONLY £20 (an absolute bargain if you ask me) you will dine on a series of open sandwiches and delightful pastries alongside signature cocktails or hot drinks of your choice. With fresh Atlantic prawns, dark rye bread, blackcurrant herring, cinnamon knots and lingonberry macaroons on offer, all I’d really need is the sound of the rolling Arctic sea and a warm fireplace to dine by and I would feel right at home.
  • Our favourite Swedish lady Zara Larsson will be releasing her HUGELY anticipated new album ‘So Good’ very very soon AND she has been busy playing house with our favourite Swedish high-street brand H&M, and has designed a collection with them! The collection will be available from 18th May. TRY TO STAY CALM.

  • We’ve rounded up our 10 favourite looks from Copenhagen Fashion Week featuring Ganni, Trine Lindegaard, JEAN // PHILLIP and more!
  • Copenhagen-based designer Nina Bruun sat down with us for an inspiring interview where she talked about her time working at Danish super-brand Muuto, motivation, running her own business and the future of the design industry.
  • Zara Larsson has been absolutely killing it with exciting collaborations and this latest one is with the all-mighty Nike! Zara features in the campaign for the release of the NEW Nike Air Max Jewell and we absolutely love it! Full of sass, style and sports-luxe, if you thought you couldn’t love Nike and Zara Larsson more, you were very wrong.
  • Another look back at CPHFW (because we loved it so much), but this time it’s all about street style! We love how insanely inspiring the fashion posse is and you are not going to want to miss out on all these amazing outfits – Part 1Part 2 & Part 3 – Get ready for major outfit envy!
