SLOW FOOD SATURDAY
KRUKMAKARGATAN, 24 NOVEMBER
Four fashion shops and a literature-shop, all located on Krukmakargatan, has invited four restaurants and a coffee shop slash roastery from the region to jointly create a pleasant experience with a focus on well-cooked, slow cooked food (slow food) and tailored and sustainable fashion. Saturday, November 24th is now known as Slow Food Saturday. Between the hours of 12-16 the restaurants Sjögräs, Steam, Södermalms Delikatesser and Tjoget together with Johan and Nyströms Kafferosteri will offer slow food and drinks inside the stores of Nitty Gritty, Nitty Gritty Grit Girl Store, Our Legacy, Papercut and Uniforms for the Dedicated.
Beyond Sofo, Millennium walks and plain chilling at Medis, there is a part of Södermalm that during almost ten years now has grown older, stronger and braver. The area extending from Mariatorget and all the way down to Hornstull is a driving and an entrepreneurial spirit that has during the years given birth to shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, theatres and hotels. Here you will find commitment and core values and a long-term thinking with a focus on sustainability and quality. We believe that more people would like what we do if they only knew that we were doing and have therefore created the Slow Food Saturday.
NITTY GRITTY IN COLLABORATION WITH STEAM
Nitty Gritty in Stockholm was founded in 1991 as a reaction to the increasingly homogenised clothing store chains that dominated trade in Sweden at the time. We value each product as much as we value the strength of its brand. Today we have one women’s store, one men's store and a online shop where we offer men's and women's clothing, shoes, accessories, skin care and fragrances in a unique mix that constantly interpret the signs.
Steam serves dumplings, Asian-inspired soups and salads prepared with their own recipes and flavours as clean as possible. The raw materials are carefully selected and all that is served should be as fresh, locally grown and fairly as it can be.
NITTY GRITTY GRIT GIRL STORE IN COLLABORATION WITH SÖDERMALMS DELIKATESSER
Södermalms Delikatesser / Delikatessen Bistro Bar is housed in what was previously one of Stockholm's oldest fire stations from the late 1800's. The focus is French, and here you can enjoy classic French bistro dishes for both lunch and dinner.

OUR LEGACY IN COLLABORATION WITH SJÖGRÄS
Our Legacy was founded in 2005 by Jockum Hallin and Cristopher Nying. Our Legacy currently operates two stores in Stockholm, a shop in Gothenburg and is found in approximately 230 of the best fashion boutiques around the world. The men’s collection of Our Legacy combines the seriousness of a 90th century business look - confidence in sharp cuts - with the soft likes of artist - aesthetically experimental and emotional.
Sjögräs creates honest, well-prepared food from the classic French cuisine with a spice of Swedish influences. In addition to serving food from both sea and forest they carries Northern Europe's largest rum selection. Over 18 years Sjögräs has housed Södermalm and has become a well known classic among Stockholm's restaurants
PAPERCUT IN COLLABORATION WITH JOHAN & NYSTRÖM
Papercut provides a personalized selection of international magazines, DVDs and books. You'll also find gift items such as Penguin products. A perfect blend of inspiration and pleasure. In short, a deli counter for the popular culture enthusiasts.
Johan & Nyström founded his coffee roastery in November 2004. It all started with a bunch of passionate coffee enthusiasts who wanted to change the Swedish coffee culture and convey a sense of craftsmanship, exclusive roasting techniques, more fun, and just more and organic coffee.
UNIFORMS FOR THE DEDICATED IN COLLABORATION WITH TJOGET
The brand Uniforms for the Dedicated has shaped a name and expression by combining playful design with environmental awareness of products and projects in fashion, furniture, music and film. Creative Processes coloured by a passion for the previously unexplored combined with a focus on contemporary craft and quality, this with the ambition of creating timeless products for the inquisitive gentleman.
Tjoget consists of three parts; the restaurant Linje Tio is one of those. Linje Tio’s goal is to take their guests on a continental trip through southern Europe. Chef Daniel Gustavsson, formerly Gordon Ramsay’s in London and head chef at F12 in Stockholm, interprets Uniforms for the Dedicated by a warm merger between the French Riviera and Stockholm autumn. Slow cooked, of course.
Comme as you are
Colourless yet not collar less. Rei Kawakubo's second line of her Commes Des Garcons universe named Comme des Garcons Comme des Garcons has created a spring collection that explores the symmetric, the patterns and collars more than colours.
”For years, I was the best-kept secret in Milan…”
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
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”.
G-Shock X Kevin Lyons
G-Shock X Kevin Lyons Multi talented street artist Kevin Lyons has teamed up with Casio to design a limited number of their model GB5600B-K8. We are proud to be one out of very few selected retailers who can offer this unique timepiece. Included within the model’s Bluetooth capabilities are music control, time sync, incoming call alert, incoming email alert, incoming social media alert, phone finder, and out-of-range warning. The model was also designed with a tap-function that allows the wearer to double-tap the watch screen in order to silence the alarm/vibration alert.
Time for traditions
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.

We had a French customer in the store the other day. He was in search for a coat and asked about what brands we had to offer him in this particular category. A member of the Nitty Gritty Crew started to show him some A.P.C coats, familiar to monsieur of course. Then further on to Aspesi, Barena and Harris Wharf – all Italians, hm, well yeah, some of them “heard of” even by Mr Paris.

Among the things that we value most in our daily work are the relations with our highly appreciated suppliers. Without our strong brands there wouldn't be a strong mix of brands, and we often receive comments about how strong our mix of brands is.
The Bench - Rob
Rob from Manchester was in Stockholm to visit friends. We discussed the role of independent shops and the importance of buying quality over quantity. He used to love the range of shops in Manchester and what they offered but felt that it has declined in recent years with only a few still up to standard.
The Bench - Mattia Crepaldi
Mattia works at Aspesi and was in Stockholm for the first time last week to visit his clients, and of course Nitty Gritty
