“Fashion is the science of appearance, and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be ” -Henry Fielding
Rose & Born has quietly built a name for themselves as must visit if you happen to be in Stockholm, Sweden and happen to be into fashion. The store was established in 1989 and has become a mecca for those interested in menswear. Here is how Rose and Born describes themselves:
“We have our base in the classic British style. Add to that Italian playfulness, paint and a modern twist, you [get] Rose & Born. Before each season we design the collection of inspiration from travel, our own creativity and above all by listening to our customers. We work exclusively with Italy’s leading weavers and the production of garments made in small family businesses in Italy. They are companies that live and breathe clothes and have done so for generations. The result is clearly reflected every season.”
Here is a quick look at their Fall/Winter 2010 Lookbook. Whats great about Rose and Born is their ability to create classically English styles while being insanely reasonably priced. Wool/cashmere ties are $65 while Beautiful wool and wool/cashmere sportcoats run around $600.
