Adnym’s SS23 collection was spurred by a single image. “It was a picture of a mother and two daughters, all wearing ties,” says designer and co-founder Stefan Söderberg. “It felt very smart and innocent at the same time.” It’s a fitting image for a brand that has been doing genderless fashion since well before it was cool. Presented via lookbook, shot by Elisabeth Toll an hour and a half north of Stockholm, the collection builds upon Adnym’s covetable offering of relaxed tailored separates and breezy suiting.
Contrasts, like those in the aforementioned reference image, are explored throughout the collection. Jackets featuring two-toned fabrications – shirt fabric in the front, a heavier suit fabric in the back – and contrast stitching offer subtle juxtapositions. An enlarged sunflower print covers a smart shirt and trouser set to “balance the elegant style”. Even the looks are juxtaposed against their backdrop. “We wanted a rough location to create a nice contrast against the smart looks,” notes Söderberg.
There are tougher elements, too. The thoughtfully tailored knee-length shorts, paired with an oversized blazer, shirt and tie skews a little bit punk. Then there are those double pleat leather trousers with cargo pockets. They’re met with a matching leather vest.
But the standout is that double-breasted powder blue suit. “It was the first fabric that I put aside that I wanted to use,” says Söderberg. “It shows confidence to enter a party in a powder blue suit.”
