In the ultimate Scandi collaboration, Swedish high street brand & Other Stories has teamed up with up-and-coming Danish-designed brand Brøgger, just two years after the brand debuted at Copenhagen Fashion Week.
The 12-piece capsule collection starts at £59, and is full of Brøgger’s signature moves – eclectic prints and contemporary silhouettes interspersed with feminine flourishes and power dressing.
Designer Julie Brøgger was inspired by her late mother for this collection, an attorney in the 80s and 90s with a penchant for ‘a really good power suit with a strong shoulder’. But she also believed that you should ‘always dress up your femininity’, hence a collection full of big shoulders, colour-blocked blazers and floral prints.
Standout pieces include a pink and black dual-print floral midi dress, a pink and black check print blazer with oversized shoulders and a sharp pink and red trouser suit. Full of nostalgic 80s throwback references, it walks on exactly the right side of the line between costume and contemporary.
We’d wear the floral midi dress with the chunky black loafers, and throw the colourful blazers on top of a plain white tee and light-wash straight leg jeans, the finishing touch being the chunky gold chain necklace, of course..
