LFW SS22: Tiger of Sweden

ACROSS the street from The British Museum, inside the gates of Bloomsbury’s Montague Gardens, the Tiger of Sweden SS22 presentation titled Performance, opened with exactly that.

A group of contemporary dancers began their routine (choreographed by Franka Marlene Foth) barefooted on the garden’s lawn, lunging and twilling to the sound of the beating music while dressed in moveable ToS tailoring.

Their dance was interrupted mid-way by models decked in more refined versions of the house’s SS22 offerings, including leather, denim and wool suiting, contrasted with pleated silk shirts and dresses.

Inspired by W. B. Yeats’s poem The Wild Swans At Coole, The Stockholm-based fashion house, famous for its heritage tailoring, showcased womenswear alongside menswear this season, with a largely minimalistic collection featuring injections of polished sportswear.

From drawstring detailing to white gum-sole ankle boots, designer director Bryan Conway amped up his typically muted designs with a leisure-focused twist for SS22.
