There has been a while since I wrote. My son hade to go through a tough operation. Now he is well and I’d like to share this with you – som nice vintage. Enjoy!

Mode från Malmö

Stickat av Katja of Sweden är inte fel i höstrusket. Det är design och mönster som fortfarande håller, producerat i Malmö.

“Jag vill skapa mode för den levande människan i vårt sociala samhälle”, sa Katja Geiger.

Hon prioriterade funktion och god design vilket gjorde att designen inte förändrades dramatiskt från säsong till säsong. Hade kunden väl hittat Katja of Sweden så fanns modellen där, med modernt uttryck i form av ny färg och mönster.

Summer with Du Pont

Swedish summer in a Katja of Sweden dress. This was in collaboration with Du Pont. This is a timeless dress from the 70th with a cute print.

Katja Geiger wanted to create beautiful cloths in timeless design. Her collections didn’t change much every season. She had her type of styles and added a few details, colours etc. I would say this was a designer who worked in a sustainable way, a designer who would be very much in demand today.

Design a la Downton Abbey-ish

At Svaneholm Castle in south of Sweden you will now be able to enjoy beautiful designs a la Downton Abbey. The cloths were owned by Swedish ladies that have lived at the castle between 1860 to 1947. The cloths were bought in Copenhagen and Stockholm, for example the M. Bendix. The castle and its surroundings are beautiful and the exhibition nice. Don’t miss out if you have the opportunity.

Happy Midsummer Time

Nice summer dresses by the Swedish designer Katja Geiger. 

And here’s another one. Happy Midsummer. Take care and have a lovely summer holiday. I’d like to thank the model who make those dresses look modern and new! Katja of Sweden is timeless and it’s shown better than ever! Thanks mate!

What happens in Sweden?

The 6th of June is Sweden’s National Day. We’re in many ways a quite humble people – quiet, avoiding arguments and well educated. Today however we are allowed to really celebration our country. We don’t do it with patriotism, more with a nice day with friends and family, with music and dance and good food. 

I don’t very often look back in a nostalgic way but when it comes to fashion it’s fun. There’s so much to explore and lot of the traditional cloths and colours return in a modern touch. The skirt above is from the 1970th made by Katja Geiger, one of Sweden’s first successful designers. The print makes me think of a Swedish summer day in June, like the National Day.
