Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Stockholm recently concluded.

The odd scheduling of the fashion calendar meant

designers present next winter’s look, a/w 2014

during the current winter season.

Curious, but such is the fashion world’s timing.

Many of the collections presented during Stockholm Fashion Week

offered pieces which are easily translatable

and readily incorporated.

True to a Scandinavian aesthetic, the clothing is

neat,  clean,  precise,  uncomplicated.

A few highlights for Stockholm Fashion Week
