When the phone call came asking me to attend Stockholm Fashion Week this season, one of the first brands that sprang to mind was Dagmar. It’s a brand I’ve loved for some time and one which caused me to do a little dance when their pieces were finally stocked by Net-a-Porter.
Dagmar is a Swedish brand that is truly loved the world over and their autumn winter 2013 collection only solidifies my allegiance to their stylish clothing. This season their coats and cover ups spoke to me more than anything else. Their beautiful almost sweater like coats with leather detailing and ribbed side panels will be the death of my credit next season. Then there are the beautiful off-the-shoulder dresses that seem to pull in at all the right places to give the illusion of the perfect silhouette. What woman wouldn’t love such a creation?
While the clothes left us breathless, the hair had us all talking and tweeting. For Spring Summer 2013, designers told us that stripes were all the rage from head to toe. Dagmar seemed to take the trend into the new season by give us “Tigger” like striping in the hair. It’s a look that probably shouldn’t leave the runway but was absolutely brilliant for show.
