Ida Sjöstedt and the Silhouette of Fusion in Stockholm

by Irene Kaś

Ida Sjöstedt does not necessarily fall into the aesthetic firewall of Scandinavian minimalism. Her work focuses more on the french style silhouettes of light and airy vs the rigid line-ism of Scandi fashion. But there are still elements within her work that suggests a softer, subtler fusion between two separate identities of aesthetics. Her Stockholm AW19 show was parked on the cusp of those two worlds where pink and black contrast each other, and the ebb and flow of each silhouettes is accentuated by the ethereal feel of the clothes. Her show stood out not only because of it’s unique DNA but also the wonderful finishing that makes or breaks a collection..
