Over at London Fashion Week today, I bumped into gorgeous Gudrun Rogvadottir. She's one half of Faroese knitwear label Gudrun & Gudrun, the business brains behind the brand. I know that I probably should be telling you about Great British style, but this season there's a special Scandinavian section at Somerset House and I'm a sucker for Nordic design. Proving that Casual Glamour is a global phenomenon, Gudrun R was wearing a chunky hand knit sweater and the metallic shoes her grandma wore for her golden wedding anniversary. Fabulous.
And we all know what Gudrun & Gudrun is famous for...
|Far right: as worn by Sarah Lund, the jumper of truth & justice.|
The company director very kindly talked me through some of her favourite pieces from the latest collection. The 'landscape' sweater is inspired by the colours of the Faroese sky at dawn - if Sarah Lund ever makes a comeback, I bet she'll be wearing one of these:
And this cardigan is made using a traditional Nordic knitting technique.
When I asked Gudrun how she felt about the end of Lund she told me, ' The Killing might be over but the jumper lives on.' And she's right. The Danish detective may have disappeared from our screens but I now have a new Scandi style icon to fill the vacuum. Moving on, people. Moving on.
