Get your scandi on

No­body does style quite like the Scan­di­na­vians. And when it comes to the new sea­son, no­body’s nail­ing it quite like Lindex

While the world’s ob­ses­sion with all things Scandi is noth­ing new, it shows no sign of abat­ing any time soon. It’s hardly sur­pris­ing: af­ter all this is the re­gion that gave us brands like Acne and Ganni – both of which have be­come the foun­da­tion of ev­ery cool girl’s wardrobe (Alexa Chung, we’re look­ing at you).

But don’t think Scandi sta­tus is re­served for the rich and fa­mous; for SS17 there’s a high street gem waiting to be dis­cov­ered. Step for­ward Lindex: you might think it’s a quiet, unas­sum­ing des­ti­na­tion that deals in pretty lin­gerie, but this sea­son it’s so much more than that. In fact, one glance at the Swedish la­bel’s new look­book and you’d be for­given for think­ing you were check­ing out the new col­lec­tion from J. Crew.

Cool, preppy pieces meet el­e­gant, sil­hou­ettes and luxe sep­a­rates, mak­ing for one sen­sa­tional cap­sule wardrobe. Sim­ple tees are brought to life by the ad­di­tion of trum­pet sleeves; jeans come with ex­tra-wide cuffs and mil­i­tary but­tons; striped blouses knot at the front; and bomber jack­ets boast pretty em­broi­dery. There are blush scarves, bow-adorned bags and, of course, a wide ar­ray of undies. To sweeten the deal even fur­ther, we’ve bagged you 30 per cent off to help you live the Scandi dream. Who needs hygge, any­way?
