Stockholm Fashion Week showcased over 30 different fashion brands for SS15, mainly womenswear with a splattering of menswear.  Erik Bjerkesjo was one of talented Scandinavian designers that walked the runway this season, and minimalist lines and toned down colors ruled his ready-to-wear collection. Having started as a luxury shoe designer, Bjerkesjo has recently branched out to include well-tailored and modern clothing.

The SS15 collection was named “Storm Within” and his simple but expressive lines allude to a basic exterior, but chaos inside, which makes for a unique vibe. Boxy, square cuts and juxtaposed matte and shiny fabrics gave off a utilitarian vibe, a sort of utility/work uniform gone stylish. The colors were basic, with mainly black, navy and a small section of white, with red being a brighter option for a few looks.

The ever trending shorts suit will continue on for SS15, as per Eric Bjerkesjo’s point of view, and we see images of a more “formal” tuxedo, with black and white color blocks built into a more casual look. Sleeves cut at the elbow, followed by what can only be described as “arm bands” were an interesting detail, of course, letting those elbows out for a springish, summery look.

Looks like minimalism is the name of the game for SS15, at least in Scandinavia.
