It’s fashion week here in Stockholm, and although this is a deco blog, one of the events just has to be mentioned here. You see, one of my favourite artists joined forces with two of the most talented designers this country has to offer, and the results are so cool! Jesper Waldersten teamed up with Astrid Olsson and Lee Cotter (the duo formerly known as V Ave Shoe Repair), and together they created the first collection for By the Number, inspired by a make-believe funeral and what one would wear to such an event.
While I don’t think I’d choose any of these garments for a funeral, they would make excellent outfits for every other day, or night. I love the flowing silhouettes that are a trademark of Olsson and Cotter, and my interest rises with the strange little quotes and dark motifs of Walderstens illustrations. It’s going to be a long wait until it’s in the stores this autumn!
