MTWTFSS S/S 10 collection (mondaytuesdaywedesdaythursdayfridaysaturdaysunday)
The concept store Weekday started up in Stockholm, Sweden when Örjan Anderson founder of the jeans brand Cheap Monday gathered a couple of friends who all felt something was lacking in the Swedish fashion world. They missed a store in-between high street fashion and niche brands – so they decided to create it themselves.Weekday became a hit from the very beginning – the mix of their own brand, favourite designers and new upcoming talents all at a good price charmed the Swedes. They now continue to grow with recent store openings in both Denmark and Germany.
Their own brand MTWTFSS (mondaytuesdaywedesdaythursdayfridaysaturdaysunday) consisting each season of 3 innovative silhouettes, is this season strongly inspired by 90’s youth culture and new wave music videos with their typical moving shadows.
The quirky Danish designer Peter Jensen now living in London made a 70’s inspired collection based on his own childhood memories. Peter who left Denmark a long time ago says ‘…we romanticise our childhood and place of birth the longer we are apart from it…’
