“I love the physical change from life in the city to the tranquility of the summer house. It is a journey we all make in Sweden every July, and I wanted to capture that transition in this collection. It is the movement from one mental state to another, and the wardrobe that goes with it.”
–Jonny Johansson, Creative Director
The relaxed mindset of the Swedish summer house applied to menswear archetypes. A pared down collection with formal fluidity.
Trench coats are cut long in linen, while house coats in light gabardine are wrapped with a sash belt: comfortable layers in which to lounge and relax.
Crochet tanks and shrunken sweaters are like the family heirlooms that decorate the summer house, with simple flowers embroidered as if a family tradition.
Long tailoring has individuality, with buttons that sit high on a suit jacket, often mismatching as if personalised. Some jackets and house coats have crochet embroidery at the seams.
Pieces are rendered in the traditional colours of Swedish summer houses, such as a trench in faluröd red, or the long line of a loosely cut suit in dalablå blue.
Chiffon is like the transparent curtains of the house, used for tailoring, shirts and shorts, as well as the outer layer of a bomber, revealing the ribbing beneath.
Plaid checks, like tea towels stored in drawers, are oversized and used on trenches and trousers of extreme volume.
Trousers sit high, sometimes fitted to the curve of the waist. Their roominess suggests a new ease to take from the summer house and bring back to the city street.
Slippers and elasticated back sandals are like crochet, while others have the irregular scale markings of fish leather
