Simon Ekrelius


First thing's first, I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who follows this blog as I now have 200 followers! But... It happened a lot quicker than I expected so I'm still waiting on confirmation on some of the prizes for the promised giveaway, and I want you to have amazing prizes rather than mediocre ones, so we shall have to be patient I'm afraid.

I'm not entirely sure why I haven't posted about Simon Ekrelius's A/W 10 collection before, the images have been stored up on my desktop for a while now.  The Stockholm based designer first caught my eye with his stunning look book, the mirror images and amazing prints were enough to win me over in a heartbeat. The prints in this collection remind me of the dust clouds created when you clap chalk board erasers together, kind of illustrated in the first image but in a much chicer way than when I was in Primary School...

I love the finishing touches like the head scarves and hats, even though they contrast to the main body of the collection, they seem to fit in perfectly. I think the stark, red contrast of the hat makes the 4th image down my favourite.

For more info and to see more of his past work, visit his website.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

  2. Indeed the collection looks great, headpieces included! The gothic make-up's interesting too. I also like the print on the last one, so very Scandinavian . . . Btw, seems like a lot of Scaninavian designers are becoming more internationally appreciated lately, which is great of course.

  7. I love the colors and prints in this collection!

    Anyhow, last year i did a vest very similar to the transparent skirt, and now seeing it here it's just weird.
    Haven't that happened to you before? Sometimes it's frustrating, 'cos i can't prove "i did it earlier" but oh well. I'm rambling, sorry.
