Sweden. Land of meatballs, loganberries, vertiginously gifted aryans and - as of the past decade or so - a slew of world-beating fashion brands.
Though the Swedes have been dressing themselves impeccably for decades, it's arguable that the rest of the world began its love affair with Swedish fashion when Johnny Johansen founded Acne in 1996.
Since, the innovative clothing brand and media concept (alongside jeans and jumpers, Acne also produce a biannual fashion and culture publication) has helped catapult the super sleek Swedish aesthetic across the globe.
Now, a host of exciting, innovative brands producing high quality apparel and accessories are following suit. From Tiger of Sweden's contemporary take on tailoring and outwear to H&M's superlative high street offering, there's never been a better time to buy Swedish.
