After spending years studying under and working for Italy’s most renowned ateliers, Swedish born designers Natalia Altewai and Randa Saome joined together to launch ALTEWAISAOME in 2009. Their brand is a blend of their home country’s style and high fashion from all over the world. Their exposure to Swedish fashion and international brands has allowed for the duo to create a line with unique detailing and clean designs using simple, monochrome color palettes that are perfect for any woman of the world.
SS14 is ALTEWAISAOME fourth time showing at Stockholm Fashion Week, and they came out in a big way with this elegant and at times angelic collection. Certain looks consisted of an oversized jacket or sweater and layering was prevalent but instead of layering two pieces, the duo referenced the style choice in a single piece. Dresses had an additional body wrap that created a strapless dress look that was camouflaged with the entire dress itself. The detail is easy to miss until the 20th look.
The collection is an ultra modern and feminine showing of the duo’s fashion IQ that spans beyond their home city, Stockholm.
