ABOUT PRLE’S COLLECTION
For AW18 Bill Murray has been the main source of influence. A character of many interesting attributes, but it’s his self-confidence and none-existing need to accumulate to what’s expected that has shaped the collection. It’s an interpretation of the public figure Bill Murray. Reflecting his diverse persona the collection consists of an eclectic range of garments and accessories.
From basics, such as grey sweatshirts and hoodies, to the multi-pocketed and practical fisherman vest
and comfortable corduroy jeans on to more eccentric faux fur pieces, and finishing off with some new headwear for the season including caps and bucket hats.
There are some obvious sports references in the collection as well, as the dad-core:ified checkered baseball shirts.
the golf associated “Pebble Beach” printed tops with its undeniable, and the velvet side-striped track pants in an soft 100% wool fabric. All curated into the PRLE aesthetic.

ABOUT K-OURAGE’S COLLECTION
Breaking new ground
2018 it is the 50th anniversary of the student riots in Paris 1968. We try to find that spirit and the breaking of new ground for women in a modern interpretation. The collection is a mix of traditional menswear seemed to be borrowed from your boyfriend or dad and womenswear flirting with 60’s couture but ripped or unfinished. The ”good girl” falls apart. La bourgeoisie falling apart. Clashes of tones of greens mixed with silver represent hope for a lighter future.

ABOUT RAVE REVIEW’S COLLECTION
The main inspiration behind the collection is witches. We wanted to work with recognizable interior fabrics such as checkered table cloths, rugs and heavy cotton laces and combine it with black leather and graphic prints. These materials resembled of the stereotypical clothing of witches that we know from movies and fairytales. For us the witch theme stands for feminism -being powerful and mysterious, sexual and provocative – all the features that we want to highlight in the collection and also what is characteristic for our brand.

ABOUT REBECCA BJÖRNSDOTTER’S COLLECTION

The bold colour palette echoes the Scandinavian wilderness; metallics, tans, rich prune combined with bolder accents of poppy red, bright yellow and intense blue.
ABOUT HOLPP’S COLLECTION
holpp will show the present, not the future. We release a new collection every season, and work close to the borders of the release. All seasons fall into a consisting line of timeless jewelry. a mix of our favourite pieces and our two latest collections ”Icicled” and ”Silver pearls”.
Collection ”Icicled” was created from spilled silver from another production in what became a naturally flowing and curving appearance with an organic, graphic, geometric element in its final rigid shapes as “icicles”. Collection ”silver pearls” is made from the grace of an barouque pearl, the oddity of the keshi pearls. The melted shape of an coin pearl. they all look different. Diversity is amazing in many ways but What if we found one pearl and love that shape? The love for silver prevented us to go for the pearls them selves. We made moulds from the pearls and casted them in 925 recycled sterling silver.
Designer: Sofia Holpp

Greetings from Mars, where we are spending this spring and summer 2018.
We are mainly relaxing around the pool and taking long walks in the garden wearing our graphic station frotté outfits. You can get them in red or black, they are really cool and comfy.
Yesterday we observed a splendid cosmic dust storm. The locals have beautiful hats which protect them from the radiations but don’t block their view. We’ll bring you a station souvenir brooch.
The red craters are simply stunning. We wish you could join us.

Baumgarten Di Marco
Sustainability is Baumgarten Di Marco´s strongest and most important hallmark, therefore the collections are not bound to a specific season, but instead seen as an extension of previous collections.

In May 2016 the brand BOW LABEL was launched with 20 products. Categories are earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets with focus on earrings and rings.
During the following year, the collection have expanded and developed. BOW LABEL does not work in seasons but releases news a few times a year. The strategy when developing new products is to make updated versions of the excisting key pieces with the ambition to build a strong base line with a sustainable design philosphy and caractheristic appearance. The base will remain in stock for many years. Some slow sellers are also being removed along the way to give the collection as a whole a more updated and tight feel. Alongside we also work with products that has longer design periods and more complicated product development. These products are a way for us to express our creativity and to build our brand, therefore these products have more unique features as well as a higher price. Our strategy for the assortment in the collection as a whole is to not have too many products in the collection, to be able to really give each and every style their time and place. When we develop new products we view all styles as individuals and we always ask ourselves: is this needed?

Tear is a word with many meanings and an interesting word to put into sculptural forms. The collection is all handcrafted in silver with details of fresh water pearls, Keshi pearls.
Keshi is pearls that grew without a nucleus. The pearl is formed when a bead nucleus is rejected and are composed entirely of nacre. All pearls are different and that’s what make it more beautiful and unique.

Götesson cites the every day as his main inspiration, seeing it not as mundane, but as the driving force behind his creative endeavors. Cut it. Tie it. Stick it. Twist it. Manipulating his materials with innovative craft, Götesson treads the line between art and commerciality (with no apologies gi- ven).
It all stems from everyday utilitarianism, here are clothes created to be worn, and worn to create in. Having grown up in the forested Swedish province of Småland (a literal translation of “small lands”), Götesson weaves his hometown’s sensibilities into his designs. “There’s also something very romantic about it. It’s important when I make stuff that I feel an attraction towards what I make.”
