The Stockholm Syndrome

Late March in Stockholm. Two weeks of playing hide and seek with Spring, some hope and some disappointment. Perhaps all the more having arrived from further south where the light had taken that unmistakable warmth, and temperatures had settled in their teens. Still, this beauty on water has so much to offer, we quickly forgot all our weather expectations. Spring as a time of rebirth, seeing the new light. As suggested by top model Lea T on billboards across town, try new patterns and brake the old, a celebration of courage and strength, “Spring Fashion, Spring Courage”
