Scandinavian Fashion - Under-the-Radar Brands to Know
Scandinavian fashion has many rich facets influenced by multiple countries and cultures. To pinpoint one overarching style, like with the Scandi home decor design movement, is not so obvious.

There are, however, a few common traits that are prevalent in a Scandinavian clothing company. They each develop a strong style identity, whether bold and fashion-forward like ROTATE or understated and wearable for every day like Mads Norgaard.

Nordic style clothing has a reputation for being urban in style, monochromatic and minimalist. Perhaps this is due to the international fame of Swedish brand Acne Studios. But several playful and flamboyant Scandi fashion brands exist and they are not afraid to use color and bold prints to express themselves. Notable labels include Ganni, pictured, and Stine Goya.

It makes sense for outerwear brands to flourish in Sweden and Denmark, considering the harsh winters they endure. Rains make ultra-sophisticated waterproof raincoats, and Saks Potts quickly garnered attention for the number of celebrities spotted wearing its long leather foxy coat.
