Designer Profile: Simon Ekrelius

Simon Ekrelius - London Fashion Week S/S 2010.

A fellow Swede, the London-based designer Simon Ekrelius, is making headlines all around town right now. I am personally stunned by his latest SS 2011 collection. With inspiration from the London Gherkin (Norman Fosters tower 30 St Mary Axe) and the fabulous Grace Jones´ silhouette, he has presented a collection full of contrasts and drama.

And it is all there, everything that make up good design; straight lines, a “strict” colour palette (black, grey, silver and white) and a wide mixture of textures. My personal favourites in this collection were the harlequin style, black and white jumpsuits which are wearable as well as stand-out-from-the-crowd outfits.   Architectural design with a personal twist, I would call it. Love it!


  1. You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
    Oh living Aten who creates life.
    When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
    You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
    Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
    You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son.
    You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
    Men see you, but know not your ways.

    ...thanks...sweet sugar...
