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.
