Philip Warkander is the world´s first doctorate in Fashion Science. We asked him a couple of questions about the nature of fashion and its future: How can we readjust our business models to be more sustainable in our consumption and is there any trends to follow or how should we think when the seasons trends do not appear as clear?
Lacoste’s iconic logo, the green crocodile, is temporarily replaced by images of endangered species. It is in co-operation with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), where ten endangered species have taken place on custom-designed picnic shirts. The limited collection consists of exactly 1775 sweaters, the total number of animals left of the endangered species. Watch the movie here!
What characterizes a Fashion Icon? When do you become an icon and how? This is something that is not always easy to put your finger on. It may be a special look (like in the case of Karl Lagerfeld), a personality extravaganza (like in the case of Iris Apfel), an ability of great storytelling (like Acne) or for long and faithful service. Rohdi Heintz managed to pin all of these. Rohdi was an extremely talented and creative designer with the ability to always be at the forefront and very confident in his style. “I don’t care for overnight sensations” as he used to say.
We met Anders Rangenstedt during fashion week at Stockholm Fashion District and took the opportunity to ask him a few questions!

Scorett invests in sneakers with their new concept Sneakers Corner in Gothenburg. The idea of the new concept is to create an interesting and inspiring environment that offers the sneaker-interested consumer more than shopping. Sneaker trends, an art gallery and arcade games such as the classic Pacman will attract the consumer. Later this spring, the next store opens in Malmö.
Stadium Group are also set to invest in sneakers and are opening up the new Sneaker Point store concept. On the 20th of March, they launch their e-commerce platform and the first physical store opens two days later in Norrköping. In April, it is Malmö’s turn to get a Sneakers Point store. The concept will be a destination for anyone who loves sneakers and targets sneakers fans and a younger audience.
Fashion week at Stockholm Fashion District has come to an end. Thank you for being a part of making this week special, we have enjoyed taking care of you! Welcome back during the season and again in August for next fashion week, which will be during week 33.
“I am your sister”
The team behind Stockholm Fashion District wore t-shirts from World Market Sthlm with the message “I am your sister” during fashion week in support of organization Alla Kvinnors Hus working to help victims of domestic violence and their children. The income from the cloakrooms will be donated to Alla Kvinnors Hus.

Hi Dwayne Antonio Edmondson, purchasing manager at Babyshop Group, which is your favourite bar or restaurant in Stockholm?
“My favorite restaurant is Lao Wai, it’s the best vegan food in town. A favorite bar is Brewdog Bar on Södermalm, lots of nice beers on tap which reminds me of a bar in the East Village of NYC I used to go to when I lived there.”
