Here at Fashionista, we heart Swedish design.

That's why we were thrilled to pop by the Ace Hotel last night to check out Stockholm-based label Hope's fall collection, as well as its 10-piece collaboration with Nina Persson, lead singer of The Cardigans.

Designer Ann Ringstrand's signature collection was full of the stark, rumpled separates the brand is known for, including a black, white and grey checkered cardigan, as well as a shearling-lined three-quarter length coat that felt warm enough to withstand a Chicago winter.

And the collaboration with Persson? We'd most definitely call it whimsical (and that's not a word we use often).

A fox fur collar--so gorgeous--was attached to a sparkling purple belted coat; a subtle geometric print livened up a sweet blouse; and a skirt--which looked like it was made of exaggerated netting--gave new meaning to tulle.

The pieces mixed in well with Ringstrand's core collection. Indeed, we'll happily admit: This celebrity's fashion line wasn't created in vain.
