Inspired by their home, Tiger of Sweden twisted traditions into a look for the modern man.
Designed in collaboration with Swedish artist Jakob Krajcik, Tiger of Sweden’s florals were a common motif throughout. Distorted like inkblot tests in places and microscopic in others, there was hardly a bouquet on display but touches of delicate patterns within an otherwise dark collection provided light and needed relief. The boldest moment? A heavy leather biker jacket hand painted like a meadow by the artist himself.
We hate to point out the obvious but Tiger of Sweden AW16 had an entirely Scandinavian feel to it. From the mostly dark colour palette like a cold winter to the sprinkling of nature inspo (the wolfish jacket and teddy fur shearlings are must haves). Even down to the distorted florals that are inspired by Dala prints, worn on the traditional dress of people in Dalarna.
Let’s go to work
The simplest pieces were inspired by workwear, think utilitarian field coats and bomber jackets, but that’s certainly not to say extravagance was lost. You only have to look to the final two suits, in blush pink velvet to see Tiger’s playful edge, breaking away from their overall theme for one last hurrah.
