Nitty News - Week 19
Native Americana fashion and food
Hopefully no one has missed our guests in the Nitty Gritty Showroom behind our menswear store. The highly appreciated and beautiful pink coloured El Taco Truck of Stockholm has opened their pop-up Taqueria and will serve Mexican Tacos made with love and the right spices. One who is always very inspired by the native Americana is Hiroki Nakamura - the creative force behind Visvim.

Bedwin & the Heartbreakers
Masafumi Watanabe is the mastermind behind our latest addition in our brand mix. Bedwin & the Heartbreakers is a Japanese street wear label founded in 2004. Their motto is Paramount Quality which is something we always aim for at Nitty when we search the globe for new and interesting brands that could make it into our stores.
With a sharp edged flair in the fabric selection, lots of courage in the design and an impressive determination and dedication in their work, Swedish designer duo Natalia Altewai and Randa Saome is one of the brightest shining stars on the Scandinavian fashion sky.
Nitty Gritty Music – Almost Blue
Bedwin & Heartbreakers has hit Nitty Gritty and as a dedication they named the collection after Elvis Costello’s song almost blue.Read more
Nitty News - Week 13
Working with Aspesi is in a way similar to reading a book by the American author Paul Auster. Just like Mr Aspesi, Auster likes to involve colour. The quality of the work is often refined and of great quality without ever being extravagant.
Mismo & A.L.L.
If Nitty Gritty had been a bag and accessories brand, we probably would have been like Mismo. The perfect combination of old traditional craftsmanship shaped in a smart updated design to fairly humane prices. The small leather goods are just perfect, the colour combos of the canvas/leather totes, shoppers and backpacks have something for every style and the branding is always very discreet and humble. It is a small company with big ambitions that always put quality in the first room. Just like Nitty Gritty.Read more

Travel Report CPH and Milano
In a few sad attempts to make you all believe that buying fashion is actually a quite hard and tempting job, we have written about snowstorms in Paris, late nights in Florence and how hard it can be to adapt to the time difference between Stockholm and New York… well Copenhagen was no picnic either. Lost luggage, more rain and snow, a pregnant womens buyer with an appetite for destruction and malfunction key cards at the hotel!

Can I kick it?
There always seems to be a fashion week going on somewhere… and during that fashion week there seems to always be at least one collection that got their seasonal inspiration from the big Apple. The energy, the melting pot, the urban vibe etc etc. We don´t argue against that, we sure know what they mean, we are no exception, we also love New York City!
Nitty Gritty Music - Lydmar Hotel
It’s that time of month again when Lydmar Hotel is overrun by Nitty Gritty Crew and guests.Read more

Can Fashion really be slow?
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.Read more

Is it the English discrimination or the French chic or maybe a combination of the two that makes a Drake product easy to define and point out?

This week we would like to highlight two really iconic birthday boys and we are going to start out with the oldest one. The never ending story of Fred Perry has come to chapter 60. It´s a true story containing sports, music, sub cultures, street style and true working class heroes.
If you take into consideration that the Nitty part of this week's news contained kind of an Island twist, It's not far off to start the Gritty News by telling you that Helmut Lang lives on Long Island.Read more
