Stockholm Fashion Week has come and gone. What conclusions can be drawn for the upcoming fall and winter from these long (and freezing) fashion-filled days in the capital of Scandinavia? First of all, it is clear that some change has finally come to the Stockholm fashion scene. New Swedish designers are taking over the runways and cool kids are dominating the front row. Instagram kids are walking the shows and rappers are performing on the runway. Suffice to say, the new generation has revamped fashion week in Stockholm this season. We spotted the five biggest trends for fall 2016 that were seen on the catwalk during Fashion Week in Stockholm—the five fashion trends that the cool girls of Stockholm are already rocking.
The trend: Gamers are the new fashion icons
Living in a world where you are online 24/7 is the only natural state of today’s youth, as we were basically raised by the web. We have access to platforms that allow us to be exactly who we want to be. Online, everything is possible. The cool kids of Stockholm try to use that same mindset in the real world by dressing however they want. DRKN, a clothing brand originally made for online gamers, closed Stockholm Fashion Week this season. They believe in a world where there’s no difference between reality, fiction, ethnicities, genders, generations, and social classes. Their unisex collection allows everyone to look like they’re about to shut down the whole game with their killer uniform. This has never been seen on the runways of Sweden before, and that's exactly why we're loving it.
