Army of Me

I have over and over before complained about the avant garde scene here in Sweden/Stockholm- how it doesn’t really exists. But I guess I have to re-frase myself and just say; it’s a little bit harder to find, and I’m glad to present to you; Army of Me. A Swedish fashion label founded in 2008 by Daniel Wahlberg and Richard Sjöblom. When I saw their show the other day during Stockholm Fashion Week I came to think about what they say about their design; the idea is simple- combining classic designs from the west with avant garde fashion from the east. I think their S/S 15 is an excellent example of just that.

A Japanese/Swedish duo, one a milliner and the other designer.
¨ We live in the middle of the woods and our designs are inspired by nature. They don’t have perfect forms and you can shape our hats to create your own expression. We’re inspired by materials that evolve, like leather and denim.¨
