ABOUT THE COLLECTION
At STAND we cherish tradition and craft of leatherwear. For us the true task is to translate luxurious material, such as leather, and integrate it into a modern day woman’s wardrobe. That is why we approached AW18 collection with a range of strong and elaborated staple pieces – as super worked classics.
With AW18 collection we wanted to explore a more relaxed and nonchalant take on investment pieces. That is why the duality between something chic and day to day wear is strongly present in this collection. With leather as a focal point of the collection we explored other materials in conjunction to it. Surfaces that play with an idea of leather imitation that can be seen in patent coated faux furs and experimental surface of a shearlings.
Experimenting with proportions resulted in a rather relaxed silhouette that is running through the entire collection. For this fall winter-collection we developed a rather relaxed silhouette to create enveloping feeling with lush material selection such as leather, faux fur and fine wool blends.
The concept of duality is present even in the color range of the collection. We wanted to push an idea of something very subtil and radical at the same time. Thats why colours such as dusty lavandel, pale blue, neon yellow and technicolor blue are present in this collection. A contrasting feeling of something luxurious and day to day wear is always present in our collections, in one way or another.
STAND girl values effortless individuality and quality at the same time being sexy in a nonchalant way. She is urban and she dresses up to dress down while still maintaining the feeling of lux that is important to her when it comes to style.
This season we are happy to present our first STAND menswear collection. The collection consists of leather classics such as biker jacket and progresses to more elaborated everyday streetwear styles in leather such as quilted jackets and track pants. To soften the sharpness of leather we have added the subtil suede, wool and faux fur to add dimension and richness to the collection.
The entire collection comes together in toned down and urban color pallet, such as navy blue, army green, tan and off-white that complements the classic STAND material selection.
For its Spring Summer 2017 collection, STAND introduces a strong lineup filled with the coming season´s wardrobe essentials, edited to include a sense of lightness and ease. It is a collection made in paper thin leathers and smooth suedes, adding a fluidity and softness to a soothing and light silhouette.
The collection is a clash of two contrasting elements; one consisting of sporty infusions, visible in utilitarian leisure pieces such as the upgraded bomber jacket, a lightweight parka as well as bottoms with elastic waists. The contrasting element is that of softer and romantic influences where frills, fringes, asymmetric lines and belts add femininity and edge to the collection. The recipe for success is to boldly mix the two parts of the collection together to get the contemporary look and casual street wise attitude that is the very fundament of STAND.
As an add on to the Spring Summer 17 Collection, six collaborative pieces are created with a vision of putting statement work into the collection. These pieces have uniquely designed embroideries, using an innovative colouring technique which has never been explored before. The embroideries, inspired by tattoo art, will be exclusively shown during the Spring Summer 2017 Show.
This seasons colour palette is carefully composed by on the one hand warm neutrals, from soft greige tones to bolder camel, graphite hues, and soft pastels. On the other hand, an infusion of vivid accent colours that inject a discreet sporty vibe to the overall expression of the Spring Summer 2017 collection.
STANDs signature biker jacket is naturally the heart of the collection. This season it comes in a cropped version and in new colour ways, always with familiar details and the perfect fit.

COLLECTION AW 2016
STAND A/W16 is all about wearability and personal style. If previous season presented a girly, sporty and playful version of STAND, this collection is a slightly more matured and multifaceted edition where the STAND woman can act as a modern chameleon, easily putting together day and night ensembles. Wardrobe staples are balanced with more cutting edge pieces, all with contemporary and up to date characteristics.
This seasons silhouette is generous and relaxed yet feminine and accessible.
Contrasts in materials are visible throughout the collection and tactility is of greatest importance where surfaces are both soft and hard, matte and shiny. Combining two or more materials and colours in the same garment is a new take on patchwork. The result is an urban camouflage; a bold mix of different kinds of long and short haired fur, colour blocking faux fur, shaded spotted fun fur and traditional camo coloured pattern let the wearer both stand out and blend in to the urban landscape.
STAND continues to explore the world of colour, adding a palette of autumn tones to the very essential black. Different shades of the same colour in a variation of qualities enrichens the colour card. The season’s rosty red accent colour is beautiful in all various qualities adding edge and playfulness to the STAND A/W16 collection.
