The key to scandi cool

SELFRIDGES is celebrating the best of Nordic style with a new pop-up, entitled The Scandinavian Co-op. The store, which opened today, has introduced a careful edit of 16 new brands that imbue the effortless, pared-down cool that is synonymous with Scandi chic.

“The calibre of international press and buyers that Stockholm Fashion Week is now attracting highlights the tangible excitement around Scandinavian design right now,” said Selfridges womenswear buying manager Lydia King. “It’s where we’re looking to for those wearable and confident collections, which are hugely covetable and – equally as important – very commercial.”

Although you might not recognise all of the labels on offer, from Stine Goya to Carin Webster, you will be familiar with the look they each champion; a refined and tougher version of off-duty model style. Silhouettes are still sharp and slim-fitting, but pared with a sense of ease.

“One of the aspects of Scandi fashion which I think excites people the most is that it’s a style of dressing with an inherent attitude,” King told us. “Even the tailoring, or eveningwear, is made to be worn with the ease of sportswear. It’s associated with minimalism and serenity, and rightly so, but where it becomes really compelling is in the case of an underlying sense of rebellion, which labels like Stine Goya and Designers Remix do so well.”

Couture Beauty: Spring/Summer 2014

THE most decadent fashion calls for truly beautiful hair and make-up, which is why the couture shows are such a highlight on the beauty calendar.

For spring/summer 2014, haute couture beauty has been as arresting as ever, with glittery eyes and spiky hair at Chanel, scarlet lips and bare skin at Dior and winged liner at Giambattista Valli. At Schiaparelli, idiosyncrasy was key, with feather-strewn hair, pastel brows and clouds of candyfloss curls all on show as part of the army of extraordinary model beauties.

See the best looks here.


Giambattista Valli/Orlando Pita kept hair simple yet modern, swept back from the face and worn loose down models’ backs.


Giorgio Armani /PriveSilvery grey smoky eyes lined with kohl were complemented by strong brows and pale skin.


Versace/Guido Palau tapped into spring/summer 2014’s love affair with poker-straight hair, with centre-parted, sleek styles either worn loose or – for those wearing hoods on the catwalk – fastened in eat chignons.


Versace /Pat McGrath gave models the glamour treatment at Versace, with perfected skin and a focus on eyes. Long lashes were complemented by bronze and black liner, with a bolt of peacock blue at the inner corners.
