Dubbed Dirty Disco Swedish Designer Jannica Hedlund transports us onto the dance floor with her recent #6 collection from her label Design By Issa. Inspired by techno bands like Format B & Markus Hamm, imagine yourself twirling & shimmying to the blaring sounds in a massive defunct warehouse clad with old paint smears on concrete walls. A range of airy silhouette’s that flow with your body’s movement! Hedlund uses a variation of neckline details on the dresses and blouses (plunging,v-neck,boatneck etc.) to accentuate the simple designs. The graphic print Kimono is a classic addition to the solid line. Each piece, from the lavender high-waist pants to the black boat neck dress are easily transitional for work or play. After reviewing her previous collections, I can honestly say that Jannica Hedlund’s work has consistently evolved and this #6 collection is by far her best work to date! She excellently conveyed her brand’s message through this collection:
Dress up. Undress. Dress down. Get dressed. Well-dressed. Dresses. The world looks good looking good. No-compromise clothes, fair fabrics, finery and freedom. Real impact. Inspired by it all. Cruel crispness. Heavy minimalism. More and less, more or less. Simply hot simplicity.
