Carin Wester Lookbook










Looking over these photographs from Carin Wester's Fall 08 Lookbook, I am once again reminded that Swedish designers do not get the coverage they deserve. The designs are simple, elegant yet fashionable without being over the top. There is a delight to be found in the clever detailing, and I must say that the colour palette is perfect for autumnal weather without being too obvious a choice. I am particularly keen on the addition of suede shoes, a timeless decision for the colder weather and more casual looks. The second to last look is most definitely something I could see myself wearing.

Currently playing: Undone (Sweater) - Weezer

  5. I agree that Swedish designers are often overlooked by men's fashion press here in the UK. I'm sure that Carin Wester has a significant following in Japan though. Thanks for sharing the lookbook. I love the styling of it all! My personal favourite look is the fourth one.

  9. If you were closer, I'd make you the cinnamon mocha latte. :)

    Thanks for the costume comment, as well, Dap.

    Loose trousers are the fit to wear right now. I adore the look. Casual yet fresh!

  14. The orange striped cardigan is my favourite!

  15. I loveee the third and final looks. Swedish minimalism is my favorite. I definitely think that they're hitting the radar more (especially in the U.S.) due to the success of Acne. Hopefully other lines will soon be floating their way across the pond. God, when will THIS be the norm and A&F/American Eagle outlawed?! I await that day...

  18. I KNOW!!!! I've been SO AWFUL when it comes to replying to my comments, but thank you for all the wonderful, kind words! I hope you had an amazing Halloween and hope your Monday went well!

    The orange in this collection is wonderful, orange is such an under-appreciated colour, don't you think?
