15 Scandi Items To Covet Ahead Of Arket's London Launch

Because our northern neighbours do it best...

It’s official. We’re experiencing the second wave of the global fashion epidemic that is, Scandi-mania.

Last winter, we rushed to invest in all things ‘Hygge’ from sweet-smelling candles to Ganni's cult tee. And surely enough, just months after the Danish trend infiltrated the British market, we were introduced to 'Lagom' - the sustainable approach to life.

But this season, we’ve stepped our obsession with all things Scandi up a notch. Yep, we've even gone so far as to ship the Swedish go-to brands the fash pack rely on to our shores.

Scandi go-to Weekday is setting up shop in London this summer alongside H&M's newest brainchild, Arket. Intrigued? Just imagine if & Other Stories and COS had a fashion baby... Yup, it's set to change our shopping game forever.

So in celebration of the impending Scandi invasion, we've scoured the shops for must-have items to covet ahead of the grand launch...

The 'It' Swimsuit

It's finally that time of year again. And you're soon going to have to make the biggest fashion splurge of the season on the 'It' swimsuit. And good news, as the Scandi fash pack do swimwear well. We have our hearts set on this copper one-piece from Swedish high street fixture, COS.

The Scandi Answer To The Summer Tee

There is no denying the formidible influence Ganni has on our tee game. The Scandis rock up to fashion month in the latest 'It' t-shirts and somehow always manage to make such a casual garment look luxe. So we couldn't round up the best buys from our northern neighbours without including a Ganni tee. You are very welcome.

The Logo Shopper

This season, we're experiencing the rise of the logo. Case in point, Vetement's DHL tee and our newfound obsession with Ikea. So look to Danish born Samsøe & Samsøe for the 'It' bag of the season. Carry it over your shoulder on your annual city break or trade in your basket bag when hitting the beach.
