Backstage, frontow, and behind the scenes, this is what caught the eyes of photographer Victoria Stillwell at the Whyred AW14 show.
This Monday, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Stockholm was inaugurated by Swedish artist and style icon Titiyo, followed by Whyred’s AW14 show. Founded by designer Roland Hjort in 1999, Swedish brand Whyred is all about contrasts. Contrasts where black meets white, stiff meets soft, and the expected meets the unexpected in a nonchalant elegance.
Inspired by Swedish painter Sven X:et Ericson and fictive muse Artist X, the AW14 collection mixes sharply tailored suits and flowy dresses with updated workwear and soft fury details. The subdued palette of black, grey, beige, and dark blue was contrasted with splashes of metallic and expressionistic patterns.
