Spring Style Diaries Part: 2 With Gudrun Sjödén

Come sit with me and step into the sprightly hues of Gudrun Sjödén's oasis for spring. As you have seen previously in Part: One, the 2013 spring collection is filled with wonderfully vivacious colours that will make any dull day brighter in a glance.

This skirt is a fun combination of geometric patterns and contrast colours that was also fitting to add a playful assortment of styling elements. Here’s part two’s lookbook of the spring fashion jumble coming together–it’s a slight nod to the Nouveau Bohemian for the modern fashionista!

Recommended: Relax with a good book, a favourite snack, and inhale spring's enchanting whispers of inspiration.

The Gudrun Difference:
Aside from uniquely defined patterns in tuneful colours and their forward-thinking approach, the Gudrun Sjödén brand stands out for many reasons. But, one empowering effort in particular that we love is Gudrun’s Good Deeds (GGD). The GGD initiative donated 120,000 SEK (just about 20,000 USD) to the Hand in Hand project, an organisation that fights poverty through the endeavours of women. Hand in Hand's success have resulted in creating one million jobs, including the countries India, Africa, and Afghanistan.

Gudrun’s Good Deeds makes a way for 150 women to have the opportunity to start their own business. The brand's contribution will specifically aid women in textile-producing areas. With that in mind, it’s inspiring efforts like these that make me appreciate the clothing and designer behind a brand with a mission even more! You may shop the new spring collection here.


 “Sometimes we think that what we do is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be smaller without those drops.”     -Gudrun Sjödén
