Bringing Sofie Back

Swedish born designer Ann-Sofie Back claims she works in fashion because she doesn’t take herself seriously enough to be an artist. Not an artist? I beg to differ. For the past nine years Back has continually done her own thing, disregarding trends and taking inspiration from concepts such as “failed everyday glamour” and embarassment. Her work is conceptual and never boring, and for that, I offer up my deepest appreciation.


Known for her inventive silhouettes, Back chose to highlight the shoulders with this collection.


Back has had a knee and kneepad fixation for a couple of seasons now and I can’t lie: I’m into it.


There’s obviously something masculine about this coat, but somehow it makes the wearer look quite fragile.


I’m not normally a fan of sheer, but I love how the cut and the material work together here and highlight the collarbone.
