Indulge in the latest sartorial launches and stay au courant. Below, Vogue Scandinavia lists the releases to keep on your radar this November

Going to bed never looked this good

Copenhagen-based homeware brand Tekla, known for its impossibly crisp pyjamas and soft bedding, has joined forces with French fashion brand Jacquemus. “This collaboration between our two brands came naturally and spontaneously. I have always dreamed of developing a bedding and homeware line, with Tekla it was the perfect match,” said Jacquemus founder and creative director Simon Porte Jacquemus. “I’m a great fan of the brand and I feel we share the same universe and inspirations.”

The playful collection sees a bold use of stripes in a consistent colour palette, developed by Jacquemus in response to Tekla’s classic pieces. The patterns are used across percale bedding, a linen bedspread, terry towels and a bathrobe, classic poplin sleepwear, and sleepwear-inspired pieces including tops, shorts, a bra and a bandana. Jacquemus’ signature whimsy can be found in a lovers’ towel made large enough for two, a strapless top inspired by men’s boxers, and a bathrobe with an exaggerated belt and button-through closure that takes its cues from traditional sleep shirts.

The collection is now available exclusively at teklafabrics.com, jacquemus.com and in-store at Jacquemus’s Avenue Montaigne location.

Swedish Djuce releases a collection of sultry savoir faire

Best known for its ethically and sustainably produced canned wine, Swedish company Djuce now expands its horizon with a steaming hot capsule collection bringing together wine, art, and fashion. Working together with German artist Klaus Kremmerz and Henirrich – one of Austria’s most innovative winemakers – Djuce’s founders Philip Marthinsen and David Dworsky says that they “instantly fell in love with the rawness and simplicity of the artwork.” “We’ve been big fans of Klaus for a long time. Both his visual style, but also his way of capturing the surreal, witty, and sometimes mundane.”

The brand’s founders explain the origins of the capsule as somewhat spontaneous. “It was never planned as a collection,” says Marthinsen and Dworsky. “We made a couple of T-shirts for ourselves and our friends back in July, but now we’re getting daily requests on Instagram from people trying to buy them.” It’s not hard to see why, with the head-turning effect of the saucy graphics. “We can’t walk down the street wearing it without getting stopped.”

The capsule collection is now live on djucewines.com

Get creative this Christmas: Now you can design your very own necklace with Pura Utz

Known for playful aesthetics and colourful beadwork, Danish Pura Utz has curated a eclectic collection of fruit-shaped figures and delicately detailed symbols, garnering an avid fanbase among the fashion crowd. With its individualistic jewellery, the brand has helped define numerous looks based on personal style, and now they’re taking individuality one step further. Just in time for Christmas, you can now customise necklaces through the brand's website, where you can choose between four lengths and an array of beaded charms.

“We are so excited to finally be able to offer something so unique to our brand because we, due to our social mission, are our own production,” says co-founder Anna Waller Andrés. “And what better way to share this connection of two worlds with our community than by giving them the opportunity to have their very own piece made together with our talented team in Guatemala.”

The customisation feature is now live on purautz.com

Finnish Hálo finds a new inner-city home in Helsinki, opening the doors to its concept store

Having long operated out of its awe-inspiring glass cube in Levi, Lappland, now Finnish Hàlo opens the doors to a new location: Helsinki. ”We wanted a space where we can offer the scenery of Lapland, a place that is easily accessible to stylists and collaborators,” says Hálo founders Marta Valtovirta and Jukka Puljujärvi.

The resulting space was inspired by downy birch, different types of rock, grain of wood and the quietness of arctic scenery. Ice was implemented in the various glass and mirror surfaces and travertine stone plaster for walls, made to mimic snow. All fixtures (display furniture, racks, mirrors etc.) in store are drawn by Laura Seppänen and hand made by small companies and artisans in Finland.

The Hálo concept store can be found on Erottajankatu 19, Helsinki.

Toteme’s new evening capsule will illuminate this festive season

The season ahead holds so much more than bundling up in knitwear and sporting our warmest outerwear – ‘tis the time for celebrations and festive frocks. That’s why Toteme imagined intimate dinners and cocktail parties for its latest collection: a capsule of 19 evening pieces created exclusively for Net-a-Porter.

Exploring the principle of tuxedo dressing with modern execution, Toteme signature sleek silhouettes and updated classic cuts permeated the line-up. “These are pieces that have the allure of tuxedo dressing but with an easier expression,” says founder and creative director Elin Kling. “Like tuxedo trousers that are cropped, worn with an open tuxedo jacket.” Beyond the cropped tuxedo suit, we find a cocktail dress in lustrous velvet; a knitted vest with pearl embroidery, pearl-embellished kitten heels; and a soft-grained leather clutch.

The capsule is now live on Toteme and Net-a-Porter.

Goodbye grey – it’s time to soak up the winter sun in Stine Goya’s latest launch

Winter is certainly on its way, but you wouldn’t have assumed so after examining Stine Goya’s new drop. The Danish designer wants to whisk us away to sunnier climates where a beach and a cocktail is the only thing you need to concern yourself with. The first drop of their pre-spring offering embodies the ultimate winter getaway: palm trees and sandy beaches with Goya’s signature colourful combinations. New botanic-inspired prints adorn flowy dresses and gathered crop tops, while sporty swimwear is treated to the brand’s evergreen Adonis Check.

“We are beyond thrilled to launch our very first Beach collection – just in time for winter sun vacations. Extending our range with resort-style ready-to-wear and swimwear makes so much sense to our brand DNA,” says the designer. “It’s a category that lends itself exceptionally well to bold colours, hand-painted prints and playful styles. I’m especially fond of our languid caftan in the Artist Canvas floral print, perfect for transitioning seamlessly between beach to bar.”

So grab your passport and book that flight now because this collection is all you need to pack…

Pre-Spring 2023 Beach is available online and in store from 18 November.

Maria Nilsdotter ventured into the archives for her anniversary collection

Aptly named Cabinet of Curiosities, Swedish jewellery designer Maria Nilsdotter presents a collection of decked out career highlights in celebration of the brand’s 15th anniversary. “This collection is a literal revelry in the archives. I’m inspired by the idea of antique cabinets of curiosities; an eclectic treasury of peculiar objects linked together by the person collecting them,” says Nilsdotter. “It is how I imagine my jewellery being immortalised by its wearer, almost like an autobiography.”

As it is a celebration, the pieces came dressed for the occasion. An 18 karat gold ring in the shape of a lynx is studded with black tsavorites, well-loved jaw and gargoyle details are recurring in bracelets and necklaces, and a bee motif is revisited in pieces cast from a combination of gold and antiquated silver with freshwater pearls. The main event, however, is the John Bauer-esque statement necklace resembling a dragon’s vertebrae, which is lavishly adorned with diamonds.

Cabinet of Curiosities will be released in three drops from November 17, in stores and online.

These new fuzzy carpets with iconic Scandi prints will warm up your flat

Swedish design heritage takes centre stage in rug company Layered’s latest collaboration with designer and illustrator Stig Lindberg. Best known for his work at Gustavsberg’s porcelain factory during the ‘30s (where he went on to be creative director between 1947 - 1957 and 1972 - 1980), Lindberg’s imaginative and eye-catching prints have become cemented in our Nordic design history as true Scandinavian classics.

Throughout the collaboration, we find these muted yet playful prints inspired by nature on new interior details, woven into rugs and blankets. Lindberg’s popular Berså print is released in a grey-white colour scale, and the carpet Gunnel (a pattern created by Stig’s wife that was never put into production during her lifetime) now comes in a white version. Finally, for those who want to make a clear visual impression in their home, a new carpet is presented in a striking black and white pattern - Domino, based on a collection of art objects designed in the ‘50s and ‘60s.

The rugs and blankets are available now at layered.se

We’re going cuckoo for ATP’s latest launch – proving a party shoe doesn’t need to be sparkly

Trying to find your sartorial footing this party season? When it comes to footwear, Swedish ATP Atelier has the answer.

In need of a new party frock? Gant reinstates its rental service to save us this season

Have you ever stood in front of your jam-packed wardrobe, an important event looming on the horizon, and uttered the words ‘I have nothing to wear’? Unfortunately, it is a tale as old as time – and one of the reasons why the fashion rental market is booming in the Nordics. One of the purveyors of this new party process is Gant, who returns this festive season with its Gant Rent concept in its Stockholm store (among a slew of other locations).

Whether it be a winter wedding, office party or New Years Eve itself, Gant Rent’s offer of festive pieces for up to four days is sure to save many from a sartorial affliction. “It’s a great way to expand your wardrobe and explore the Gant collection - all whilst supporting circularity,” says Jessica Cederberg Wodmar, EVP of global sustainability and corporate social responsibility at Gant.

After all, why would you buy a snazzy party frock you’ll only wear once when you can rent it?

Gant Rent will be available in London Regent Street, Stockholm Birger Jarlsgatan, Paris St. Germain, Paris Capucine, Madrid Serrano, Berlin Leipziger Platz, Munich Hofstatt and Lancy La Praille between December 1 2022 and January 31 2023.

Feeling blue? This limited-edition table made from recycled stockings is the best medicine

Each year, over eight billion pairs of tights are bought, worn a handful of times and then discarded. Made from petroleum, this wear-and-tear item is arguably one of the fashion industry’s worst culprits. To combat the growing amount of hosiery thrown into landfills, in 2020 Swedish Stockings launched its Recycling Program – collecting stockings from all over the world, no matter the brand, to transform into other products. “I believe the highest form of sustainability is longevity. My mission with Swedish Stockings has always been to extend the life of tights, women's foremost wear-and-tear garment,” says Linn Frisinger, founder of Swedish Stockings. The best way to do so? Turning tights into tables.

Joining forces with Gustaf Westman, the hyped furniture designer known for his playful and colourful objects, Swedish Stockings created a collection of tables made from recycled Stockings. “I love that when Swedish Stockings had waste they couldn’t use themselves they asked me if it could be used in furniture instead,” says Westman. Now, they’re adding onto the existing assortment with a limited edition of four new blue tables.

The four blue tables will be available on 13 November, online at gustafwestman.com and swedishstockings.com

Sophie BIlle Brahe’s new jewellery box has us on cloud nine

There’s something otherworldly about Danish jeweller Sophie Bille Brahe’s designs. With a penchant for pearls, her organic shapes are somewhat surreal, even dreamlike, in their irregularities. Expanding beyond her fineries, we find the eponymous founder shares the same sentiment when it comes to jewellery boxes. “A jewellery box is a place where you put your dearest belongings, it is the keeper of your intimate dreams,” she explains.

While her velvet clad boxes remain as popular as ever, Sophie Bille Brahe today releases a new collaboration with Brown's fashion: a reflective cloud-shaped box. Clouds are an enduring symbol in Bille Brahe’s creations to the point of being a signature – even the tables in the brand’s Copenhagen showroom are cumulus formations.

The Cloud Jewellery Box is now available at sophiebillebrahe.com and Browns Fashion.

& Tradition welcomes Note Design Studio to its roster with this must-have trolley

The Nordic interior hub & Tradition has added a new name to its roster of star designers: Note Design Studio. As a multidisciplinary studio, Note Design Studio shies away from one clear visual identity, but still keeps functionality at its core. "When we are designing a piece, any piece, that means we have a function in mind. “We need to solve a problem,” says Kristoffer Fagerström, partner at Note Design Studio. A sentiment which permeates the studio’s first addition to & Tradition: the Alima trolley.

Featuring a strong graphic frame in chrome or matt black powder coated steel, this metal silhouette contrasts against a natural leather handle and removable wooden tray in oak or walnut. Its wheeled feet ensure easy manoeuvrability, allowing the trolley to be used in multiple ways in your home, whether that's as a side table or simply as a storage piece slid under your desk.

The Alima trolley is now available on andtradition.com

This is the J. Lindeberg launch we’re bringing to the slopes

Having cornered the market for fashionable activewear, J. Lindeberg doesn’t sacrifice sartorial flair in lieu of function. A sentiment that rings especially true with its latest ski collection. Peppering our snow-bound suitcases with rhythmic swirling patterns and a punchy colour palette, J. Lindeberg proves its understanding of how to elevate sporty attire. As J. Lindeberg’s head of design Neil Lewty aptly puts it: “Our 'fashion on the slopes' approach to skiing makes sure everyone will look great without compromising on comfort or functionality.”

The ski collection will be released from November 2022, until February 2023 in stores and on jlindeberg.com

OAS new capsule is the perfect father’s day gift

Swedish resortwear brand OAS has made a remarkable journey. With a curated line-up of beach-friendly attire emblazoned with the brand’s handmade prints, ‘70s flair spans teddy sets and desaturated printed swirls. While sticking to its design DNA of luxurious leisure, with exciting developments on the horizon (watch this space), the Stockholm-based brand now expands its carry-over styles with a long robe. “The new Long Robe was born to become yet another staple of ours,” says Oliver Lundgren, founder and CEO.

Styled by Hanna MW and shot by Rami Hana on street cast models in Sicily, the new robes in four colourful prints find their way onto our list of ideas on what to get the hardest giftee there: our fathers. A gift we are thrilled to borrow (steal) next time we come to visit.

The robes are now available on oascompany.com

Dior just revealed the best equestrian boot to elevate your autumn wardrobe

When we first spotted Dior’s Empreinte boots in the French Maison’s cruise 2023 collection, we marked our calendars awaiting the release. Adhering to the equestrian theme of the cruise collection, the riding boot style in black calfskin leather – adorned with a gilded monogram CD buckle – is an ode to the brand’s exquisite attention to detail. Deceptively simple, the craftsmanship seen in the pared-down silhouette, honeycomb elastic and heat-formed instep testifies to Dior’s talented artisans.

Finally, we can take the Empreinte boots off our wish lists and welcome them into our autumn wardrobes. And in truth, wild horses couldn’t drag us away from obtaining them.

The Empreinte boots are now available on dior.com.

Swiss watchmaker Longines welcomes Jennifer Lawrence into its family

Jennifer Lawrence’s star power is undeniable. With an impressive cinematic pedigree, having won her industry's highest accolades, she has in no way settled – instead establishing her own production company Excellent Cadaver. As such, Lawrence works diligently with charitable causes advocating for gender equality, making her just the type of bold and empowered woman that Swiss Watchmaker Longines wants to embrace.

Now, Longines welcomes the American actress into the family as its Ambassador of Elegance. “Jennifer has the ability to imbue every character she plays with reality and authenticity, and off-screen, this translates into an elegance that is both natural and relatable,” says Matthias Breschan, CEO at Longines. “She is an inspiration to girls and women of all ages and we are proud to welcome her to the Longines family.” Lawrence is equally excited about the partnership, saying: “Longines has long been synonymous with timeless elegance, which to me, can be defined as a quiet powerfulness met with grace and confidence. And as a native Kentuckian, I’ve always associated Longines with the Derby and the embodiment of tradition.”

Wood Wood reimagines Alvar Aalto’s iconic Stool 60 in brand new colours

Highlighted in our review of Alvar Aalto’s most recognisable pieces the Stool ‘60’ is a lightweight, pragmatic, practical, and, most importantly, stackable piece of Finnish design excellence. First launched in 1933, the stool quickly gained popularity across the Nordics. Now, Danish lifestyle brand Wood Wood has given the piece a contemporary update by painting it in new hues. “Although simple in appearance, the Stool ‘60’ is actually an innovative, sophisticated piece of furniture. To me, it’s a true design icon,” says Wood Wood co-founder Brian SS Jensen.

For his own interpretation, Jensen wanted to show respect to the original form. “We experimented with more distinct colour applications while preserving the beauty of the birch, which I think is an essential part of the Stool ‘60’’s story,” he explains. It resulted in three new iterations: Bothnia Blue, Factory Yellow and Powder Pink – with the natural pattern of the birch wood still visible beneath.

The pastel-hued interior pieces are available from 5 November on woodwood.com

Eternal icon Claudia Schiffer launches collaboration capsule with Frame

Scandinavian-owned Frame and Claudia Schiffer have joined forces to give us a sustainable capsule that’s both timeless and on trend - just like Schiffer herself. Comprised of six knitwear pieces and two pairs of jeans, the new styles are inspired by the supermodel's own winter wardrobe. Schiffer loves the outdoors, so versatility is a key feature of the collection, and she's also a fiend for a good jumper, so you can be sure the knitwear is made of the most luxurious sustainable wool. The sailor’s stripes that have been making runway rounds the past couple seasons are present, and for anyone not ready to embrace the low-rise denim hype, these classic jeans could be your saving grace.

Elhanati and Khaite continue their buzzy collaboration, now launching necklaces and bracelets

The romance between Danish goldsmith Elhanati and buzzy New York brand Khaite seems unending. Expanding on their collaborative collection (which debuted in February 2022), today marks a new addition: 11 limited-edition line pieces to complete the Khaite wardrobe for Resort 2023. The extended Khaite x Elhanati selection includes the collaboration’s first necklaces—in pendant, choker, and lariat styles – and the first bracelet, along with new hair clips and earrings, all crafted in the Danish jeweller’s Copenhagen atelier.

“Khaite doesn’t present collections; we present a woman,” explains Catherine (Cate) Holstein, founder and creative director of Khaite. For resort 2023, Khaite traces that woman’s evolving relationship to embellishment— it’s intensified and accelerated while remaining integral, not an afterthought. “This concept of foundational adornment is at the heart of our collaboration with Elhanati, so the moment was right to explore new forms,” Holstein says. “It is a continuation of our story, where Khaite and Elhanati meet,” Orit Elhanati adds.

The Khaite x Elhanati collaboration will be available to shop from 3rd November from www.elhanati.com and www.khaite.com

Skall Studio is bringing even more of its production back to Scandinavia

"There’s always a little bit of Beatles in India,” the Skall sisters said of their eponymous brand ahead of their latest show at Copenhagen Fashion Week. And it is true: India has long influenced the Danish brand, marking both craftsmanship and design, with production spanning both Denmark and India. “For many years we have worked with the small family owned Hjelholt spinning mill, one of the last remaining spinning mills in Denmark, and OK Babystrik, one of the last remaining knitting factories in Denmark,” say the Skall Sisters. “This is something we want to upscale.”

Now, the brand is bringing more of that production a little closer to home. By partnering with Malmö Industries, a small Swedish sewing company where each style is made by the same person from start to end, not only are you able to trace the production process. Each style is also made in a limited number. “For example, we have made 100 blazers – each one with a label that indicates the number,” the Skall sisters explain.

The Malmö Industries pieces will be available 4 November on skallstudio.com

This recently released and reimagined signature bag by Schiaparelli is surprisingly understated

Musing about his autumn/winter 2022 ready to wear collection, Schiaparelli’s creative director wrote “I thought a lot about what was elemental for this collection, and I meant that in two ways – not only what was fundamental, but what comprised the basic lexicon of the Schiaparelli wardrobe.”

In a collection epitomised by Schiaparelli signatures, as seen in anatomically-inspired design details and gold, we found ourselves struck by the perennial Secret Bag, reimagined for the season in crocodile. Next to its avant-garde siblings – such as the wide-mouthed face on the Anatomy bag or the perky nipple clutch, this flap-bag style featuring a classic top handle and brass padlock closure lends itself more to everyday use.

An unexpected investment, it’s a must-have for those in-the-know, and a no-brainer addition to our very own assortment of accessories.

Comfort comes first, a concept Aiayu has nailed with its next drop

As we all try to figure out how to balance fashion and function, it seems Danish brand Aiayu read our minds with its latest drop. Made for the metropolitan woman, the brand’s 2023 Vol. 1 finds its footing in utilitarian styles, soft silhouettes and – you guessed it – comfort. Inspired by the late 1960s, with a muted colour palette of cream and navy with the occasional pop of red, the collection travels from bed to the office and back again. All while adhering to the brand’s sustainability ethos, of course.

So settle in until this coming spring, and patiently wait for this curated closet of workwear sets, striped knits, and the undeniable star of the season – the office appropriate PJ.

Inuikii's new unexpected shoe addition is the perfect archipelago accessory for SS23

While the soon-to-be sleet covered streets leave us with very few footwear options, there’s nothing stopping us from daydreaming of the perfect slides for spring/summer 2023. And as if manifested, we’ve found a superbly strong contender in Inuikii’s latest lineup – the Sabot Venezia Clogs.

Float to 'Cloud 9' with Stine Goya’s dreamy pre-spring 2023 collection

In the words of the designer herself, Stine Goya is all about “dopamine dressing”. For pre-spring 2023, Goya dials up the dopamine and invites us to a new dreamscape, aptly named ‘Cloud 9’.

‘Cloud 9’ delivers the brand’s usual exuberance, but with extra attention paid to three-dimensional textures and forms. Fluffy, cloud-like knits and airy, ethereal dresses shape the collection, inspired by Teamlab - a collaborative group of artists, engineers, animators and architects whose installations showcase how human interaction brings art to life.

Look out for the almost reptilian-like pieces coats in recycled sequins which catch every light, or our personal favourite, the liquified tulip print which challenges interplay between nature and technology.

And no accessory is more integral to an enjoyable winter holiday than a pair of great ski goggles. Lucky for us, Swedish eyewear brand Chimi just released their new and improved model.

"Spending most of my teens in the slopes I was always searching for a clean look to wear," says Charlie Lindström, Chimi's creative director. "When we designed our first ski goggles my mission was to set the most minimalistic design possible without compromising the function and technique." The brand's new style – 02 – is a follow up with details that are even closer to fashion. Featuring two lenses with a magnetic fastening system, 100 per cent UV protection and multi-layer face foam for a comfortable fit, they’re the ultimate accessory for your next alpine jaunt.
