If ever I was to go shopping for new clothes, instead of thrifting, I might visit these two Swedish designers, who's folk sensibilities definitely appeal to me.
Gudrun Sjöden's Swedish folklore is beautiful and colorful, and she is, on occasion, known to sample some Frieda Kahlo, into the mix, which is just dandy by me. Ewa i walla, on the other hand, sticks to muted colors, with colorful accents, and much more earthier, imaginary country-girl looks.
This landscapes make me kind of homesick for beautiful, summery Scandahuvia. I don't know if I would actually fork out a couple of hundred for a dress, but perhaps investing in quality, and pieces you know you would love for years to come. I mean I'm still kind of kicking myself for not investing into a couple of Ivana Helsinki pieces I yarned for like five years ago.
Scandinavian style can be other things besides minimalism for sure.
