Uniforms For The Dedicated AW18 collection felt fresh and charming, yet still had its street flair. Shown at the traditional classic hotel D’Angleterre, models came down the catwalk styled with black berets, a red flower, white socks and black slippers, which made most people smile. From flared coats to sleek jackets and from trousers to shirts and crewnecks, the collection offered it all in many versions.
The outerwear offered everything from classic woollen coats to sports jackets. Among the stand-outs were a black woollen coat with red striped cuffs and white trimmings on the inside styled with a simple t-shirt and pair of easy-to-wear trousers, it is classic, elegant and had enough edge to excite followers and others alike, another stand-out was the dark green sleek coat with large side pockets at the waist. The collection also had a few throw-away pieces such as some of the white t-shirts and easy-to-wear trousers, but overall, the collection was everything we have come to expect from the Swedish brand
