Scandinavian Inspiration

Wednesday, 28 September 2011

So the Indian Summer has hit London and we are not complaining. Last week we experienced a taste of winter when we took a trip to Scandinavia. It. Was. Cold. There is something beautiful about the Scandinavian darkness and cold, it seems to spark a certain type of gothic inspiration that we very much adore. It has brought us bands such as The Knife, Fever Ray and The Radio Dept., minimalist fashion labels such as Acne, Whyred and Weekday, wood crazed interior design and films like Let The Right One In, Persona and Festen (The Celebration).

Here are some photos that we took on our journey and outfits we put together inspired by Scandinavian heritage.
