Last night, Swedish fashion editors, designers, and hangers-on piled out of taxis in Stockholm’s Djurparken, where Filippa K. was holding her Spring/ Summer 2008 show. Amazingly, no one seemed to mind hiking up a little dirt trail through the woods in their stilettos to get to the runway, or the fact that the show was more or less in the middle of nowhere. Can you see jaded fashion industry insiders hiking in the woods in their Manolos? In February, people freaked out because Luella was showing on 11th Avenue! As for this show: The womenswear collection was stronger than the men’s, and both carried this season’s nautical theme well into next year (so go ahead and buy that MJ jacket Faran)! We were very happy to see that purple (our favorite color!) dominated the palette in both women’s and men’s. But will guys outside of Sweden wear nautical purple denim? Here’s hoping! --ALISON COOL
