Northern Exposure

September 20, 2012 BY CAPSULESNEWS

Monday night at the New Museum, some of the most promising Nordic designers gathered together to showcase highlights from their SS13 collections to a crowd of stylish New Yorkers and fashion-forward Swedish and Finnish ex-pats. Organized by Capsule, International Playground and the Consulates General of Sweden and Finland, the six selected Nordic brandsall exhibiting at Capsule Women's NY this weekpresented an eclectic mix of asymmetrical dresses, printed suits, and a heavy dose of innovative accessories as guests sipped on custom cocktails from Purity Vodka. Participating designers included Minimarket, Samuji, R/H, Daniel Palillo, Hope, and Altewai.saome. While each brand has a distinct point of view, the overall assortment was representative of the vibrant, exciting world of Nordic fashion.
