Paying homage to Sweden’s rich history and especially the typical Scandinavian restraint seen in the redesigned royal palace of Sweden Kungliga Slottet, the Spring, Summer 2017 collection by Tiger of Sweden ranges in influence from the ornate to the understated.
Using the contrasts seen throughout the collection to create a sense of intricacy, depth and a contemporary feel, the collection mixes Baroque garden-inspired prints on one-and-a-half breasted suits, bombers and windbreakers, with utilitarian zip-up field vests in monochromatic shades.
The juxtaposition of minimal and maximal or old and new can be seen with suits being worn with trainers, or with regency-style morning suits paired with nylon field jackets. And although it may seem like a confusing jumble of styles, the collection was unified by the consistently sharp cut that Tiger has become known for.
The light art as a back drop of a castle at the show was amazing and I can safely say that the label has pulled of another top-quality collection of contemporary styles which are as desirable as ever.
