Words by Mr Chris Elvidge
Sweden's picturesque capital sits astride 14 islands at the heart of the Stockholm Archipelago. Criss-crossed with narrow cobbled streets and crystal-clear waterways, Stockholm is a beautiful, cosmopolitan city, but one that's also bitterly cold during the winter. It is this contrast between a vibrant culture and an unforgiving climate that is at the root of its much-celebrated style. Elegant and modern, but with a simplicity born of necessity, Stockholm's distinctive look is a reflection of the city itself, and one that has placed it emphatically on the style map.
Embracing this form-meets-function approach, we visited the city to demonstrate four versatile winter essentials that work at any time, day or night. Watch and shop our video above, or read on to find out more about the looks and the locations we visited.
