Can Fashion really be slow?

Tags: Womenswear

Can Fashion really be slow? If it's slow, can it still fit in the “fashion category” or shall it simply just be called clothes. Well, we'd like to believe that it's still possible to produce slow fashion that fits just perfect between the trend and the need. Let´s take the Swedish brand House of Dagmar as a great example of this. In a few years they have managed to build a sustainable brand with real quality values. Their design is elegant, yet unconventional, brave, yet sophisticated, practical and wearable, yet sensual and glamorous. Last year they won one of the more prestigious Swedish fashion awards, Guldknappen (The golden button), and are today represented in only the best stores there is, such as the Nitty Gritty Grit Girl Store…

Aspesi is also a brand that during the past years has grown mainly because they make a damn good product! Their designs are timeless classics that fit most grit girls irrespective of age, style, profession and size of wallet. This is the first season we carry Aspesi in the shop and why not check it out on Saturday while enjoying the Slow food Saturday event at Krukmakargatan, where you can try a bunch of slow cooked dishes made by our fellow neighbours at Södermalms Delikatessen and Steam.

Slow down Grit Girl, you'll get there…

Vu is Chief Operating Officer at Mojang, makers of Minecraft, here in Stockholm and travels a lot, but always visits us when he is in town.

Roland has been a loyal Nitty Gritty customer since the very beginning back in 1991. But this day, when we caught him on The Bench, his main purpose of visiting Krukmakargatan wasn´t to shop for new clothes, but to collect the latest issue of the Japanese Outdoor Fashion Magazine “Go Out”, sold by our shop neighbour Papercut. Thanks for stopping by Roland!

This is Gisela Rydberg. She works at Nitty Gritty. Well actually she doesn't, but she's hanging out here a lot and she lives just up the street from our stores so she's more or less like one of us.

I have nothing to do if you take making clothes away from me…

Bits And Pieces

… says Ichiro Nakatsu from Osaka. As a young boy he used to go to the America-Mura (American Village) area of his home town and visit the vintage store located there. At the time they offered a great selection of American casualwear such as numerous variations of five pocket denims, button down shirts, Hawaiian shirts, military pants and jackets. He did this with the purpose of finding something as beautiful, comfortable and well aging as his childhood overalls made of Cone Mill denim cloth.

”For years, I was the best-kept secret in Milan…”

”For years, I was the best-kept secret in Milan…”

Bits And Pieces

The quote comes from Serbian born, Milan based designer Dusan Paunovic. With his self titled brand ongoing since 1999, he has kept true to his values of being very personal with his customers and clients. He keeps a small distribution in order to have control over it and to develop long term relationships with the stores he supplies. From this spring, that now includes Nitty Gritty.

Things that make a difference

Things that make a difference

Bits And Pieces

Maybe you are aware of the heritage of Nitty Gritty, or maybe you are not? The whole thing started back in the early 90's with three guys who actually where more into northern soul music than fashion. But they still felt an urge to create a platform in Stockholm for different kinds of sub cultural phenomena's whether it was driven out of music, fashion, sports or whatever that they felt interesting for the moment. This is probably why we have taken quite a few different directions throughout the years, but still maintained our backbone of inspiration and development in the sub cultural sphere. We have always admired people that come from different backgrounds and makes their own things and are dedicated to their beliefs and that “goes all in”.

Time for traditions

Time for traditions

Bits And Pieces

We always go on about how much we appreciate brands that know how to keep hold of their history and at the same time keep an eye on the horizon and into the future. That keeps them relevant, up to date and probably also in business for another hundred year or so. Christmas is similar, it’s the time when you value traditions and evaluate the year that has gone by and at the same time look into the hopefully bright future. You make new plans and promises both to yourselves and to your beloved.
