Color from Sweden

Emma Lundgren graduated from London's Royal College of Art this summer with an MA in Textiles. She grew up in Sweden, and has set herself to channel Scandinavian (and other) folk patterns with unusual sophistication. I discovered her work here.

This kind of intense color is showing up occasionally in fashion now, I notice, even though subdued, faded, washed-out & muddy palettes remain mainstream.
