The fashion houses keep returning to Scandinavia for winter inspiration, but there’s more to the Nordic countries than dodgy Christmas jumpers

They are used to dressing for winter in the Nordic countries — perhaps that’s why they’re so good at it.

Contrast delicate winter pastels with earthy browns, snow whites and forest green. Shades of cool grey, blue and eucalyptus round out the naturalistic colour pallete.

Rustic materials and chunky knits bring an artisanal feel to this recurring trend.

Light metallics and reflective details recreate light on water to add subtle sparkle.

Think the timeless beauty of sparkling oceans and lush pine forests.

Cosy but elegant
