Northern Lights

Altewai Saome

As I mentioned in my last post, on Monday night, International Playground partnered with the Swedish Consulate and the Finnish Consulate to host Northern Exposure at The New Museum, a joint fashion presentation of six Scandinavian designers.  Since I did not make it over to either Stockholm or Copenhagen Fashion Week this season, getting to have some of the major players come over for a mini Spring 2013 showing here was a real treat.  The selection was diverse.  Representing Finland, Daniel Palillo showed his sci-fi inspired street attire, Samuji presented classically tailored feminine garments, and R/H provided casual offbeat sportswear infused with a sense of quirk.  Representing Sweden were Malmo's most innovative new design stars Altewai Saome, showing off their signature structural silhouettes, Minimarket, who presented eye-popping digital prints, and Hope, showing their trademark brand of preppy minimalism.  While each designer only showed four looks, it was a representative glimpse into what's going on in the North, especially for those who weren't familiar with the designers. Here are some highlights from the night.
