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.

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.

The Bench - Robert Levine
In November Robert Levine will turn 21. Robert, who originates from New York, has chosen to spend his last four months as a 20-year-old kid in Stockholm. One can wonder why, when all that Stockholmers around the same age want to do is to go and live in New York for a while, the place to be, where it all happens! One can only assume…
Neighborhood & WTAPS
With a history that extends almost as long as Nitty Gritty’s, The two Japanese brands Neighborhood and WTAPS have been in the top segment of streetwear ever since they saw the light of day in the mid 90’s. Tetsu Nishiyama, or TET as his signature, became a pioneer of Tokyo’s young and vibrant Harajuku districts fashion scene when he started a few brands in the early 90’s. About the same time, motorcycle enthusiast Shinsuke Takizawa wanted to bring about a brand that could express the lifestyle that Shinsuke and his friends were devoted to.

Since it’s autumn and everybody seems to want a new coat we thought that we might as well give you some background information about the different kind of coats that Nitty Gritty offer this season.

The Bench - Paulina Liffner
This is Paulina Liffner von Sydow, the Swedish bag- and accessory designer that in a very short time has become the favourite among a number of style icons in Stockholm. When she came by the Nitty Gritty head office the other day to show her next collection for our buying team, we kindly asked her to strike a pose at `The Bench´ for us. Because in our concerns, she´s just as stylish as the fashionable crowd that so highly appreciate her bags.
The Bench - Oscar Richt
If you are getting away with a look that is some kind of a cross over between 70´s porn star and Jude Laws character Dickie Greenleaf from The Talented Mr Ripley, you definitely got some sense of style.
Spalwart, A.T.P. & Little Liffner
Just in between the menswear international fashion weeks and trade shows and the up and coming international women’s shows in Paris and London, Sweden manages to squeeze in a kind of fashion week as well. It’s not something that Nitty Gritty in particular is a part of, and as you know, we don’t work with that many Swedish brands. Main reason for that is that we first and foremost try to offer a unique mix of brands for our home market, and since most Swedish multibrand stores offer a big selection of Swedish and Scandinavian brands, we try to do it differently. We do like our fellow Swedish business colleagues, and have the greatest respect for their work, and some of them have made it into the Nitty Gritty concept.
