Swe­den is the birth­place of so many of our favourite brands from H&M to Happy Socks, but spend an af­ter­noon in the Sofo neigh­bour­hood and you’ll quickly dis­cover plenty of newer and more unique fash­ion out­slets.

Sivletto, lo­cated in a base­ment off of a side street, with a small sign out­side mak­ing it easy to miss, it’s one of those places where you can buy vin­tage jeans, art books, and man­age to get a hair­cut and cof­fee all in the same place.

But Sö­der­malm’s most fa­mous shop is prob­a­bly Grandpa which sells ev­ery­thing from vin­tage posters and fur­ni­ture to fash­ion from lo­cal Swedish brands such as Uni­forms for the Ded­i­cated. From wan­der­ing around their store, though, you can clearly tell it’s not about the brands, it’s about the spe­cific prod­ucts — all metic­u­lously se­lected and cu­rated be­cause they’re the best of the best.
