Jonny Johansson mastered to translate a paradox thought into our summer wardrobes: “It is interesting to me that even though we live in a digital age with a free flow of information, there are many countries who want to close their borders. I prefer to focus on openness and looking out into the world.” The openness came to life by the use of loose and fluid silhouettes. Prints repeated themselves in various options but always combined differently. The air of an urban, somewhat nomadic feel ran throughout the lineup, and not only because the pieces were inspired by scarves and blankets; the designer experimented with oversized shapes and volumes to create an airy look. And even if Johansson is not known for setting political statements through the fashion lense, this collection had us thinking, too.
