Stylist Lalle Johnson has worked with men's fashion for decades, and has become widely known for his timeless and integrated style. His r?sum? includes everything from big fashion magazines to Oscar Jacobsen, Veronica Maggio and Hennes & Mauritz, and he is now joining forces with Dressmann.
The exclusive Lalle Johnson Collection will be available in selected Dressmann shops and online store as of 21 august. And if we take the word of the style icon himself, it reflects his style and standards of quality "one hundred percent".
"It is a classic collection while also being easy to play with. It is also very easy to combine, as it includes everything from suits, blazers, chinos, coats and shirts to knitted garments and accessories such as ties and hankies," says Johnson.
For his work with the collection, Lalle Johnson has taken inspiration from Italy:
"There is a lot of 'Milan' in the designs and style, including soft and comfortable elements. At the same time, the spirit of Scandinavian is present in the choice of colours and expressive character of the accessories. It's soft, elegant and stylish, " says the stylist.
The results are garments and accessories that not only function well on their own, but which - as Johnson points out - are easy to combine with each other, and what you already have in your closet:
"Everything has grey, blue, brown and green in different tones, which makes the collection very versatile and not least: integrated. People who know me are aware that I'm always thinking in terms of integration."
This is a seasonal collection. I just delivered the second part of the collection, which consists of spring 2018, and it looks absolutely fantastic.
