fresh mess for garage dec/jan 2010: shiny, happy people

Pop a happy pill of Nordic cool.

For Garage Magazine’s travel and arts issue, I wrote about Norwegian-born fashion brand, Moods of Norway. Founded in the small, picturesque town of Stryn where Moods of Norway still has its headquarters and showroom, the brand has grown into an international name in fashion. With stores in Europe, the US and Japan and a celebrity following, Moods of Norway continues to set men’s fashion on the edge in its sixth year now with fun, frisky use of colors, sheen and outrageous prints.

For its current collections, Moods of Norway offers sharp suits in either tartan or romantic folk prints. The latter seems to get inspiration from the traditional Norwegian art of rose painting – the prints are ornate and rococo. My personal pick would be this bordeaux jacket (pictured upper right corner on the page) emblazoned with tone-on-tone floral patterns and features a contrast piping on the lapel. It looks so lavish and luxurious!

Also captured in this column is the magnificent Norwegian nature – the snowcapped mountains and the fjords. No wonder Norwegians are happy people (but the award went to their neighboring Danes), they are blessed with good looks and a stunning country to live in.

Show some love and get your copy of Garage Magazine’s December/January 2010 issue. It’s available in many newsstands in the Philippines.
