Gudrun Sjödén strives to make colourful clothes in natural materials with an emphasis on Scandinavian design. Designed to be versatile, her pieces can be mixed and matched now and with future collections for all woman of ages, shapes and sizes. Sounds good.
Gudrun's all-encompassing manifesto is revealed in the pages of her web-catalogue where models span the ages from 20 to 60 with a remarkable model who is 98! Gudrun models occasionally too - demonstrating that one does not have to be thin to fit into her clothes.
Gudrun Sjödén Design has been around since 1976. Her contribution to a greener world is to create timeless designs with a long life-span. That's a good way to look at especially since her products are a little more than I usually like to pay. Landscapes, fruits and flowers are Gudrun's inpirations. I find her designs to be folkloric much like the sweaters I recently purchased from the Serbian tricoteuses IVKO - but that's for another time.
I've bought the selections shown above. (minus the boots, but I know a Kat that would probably like them!) I let you know how they work out. I'm sure that Canadian Customs will practically cripple me with duty.
