Sofie Brodén is doing her final study year in the field of marketing strategy and social media strategy. She is born in Sweden but her fondness of France has brought her to study and to work in Paris on three occasions. It has almost become her second home country. Sofie is interested in how fashion and art reflects cultural trends. She’s a hobby photographer and find inspiration in structures, shapes and surfaces in the surrounding environment. Art is everywhere. For Trend Tablet she gives a glimpse of her current hometown, Stockholm.
“I love Stockholm for its contrasts and that you always have the water near by. From the vibrant city centre you reach the green oasis; Djurgården in only five minutes by tram (20 minutes by foot). There you can take magical evening walks in the Scandinavian summer light. For those who prefer house-spotting, the city’s architecture covers all styles from the traditional red cottages to the more futuristic office buildnings. Every area has a different feeling, Vasastan with its pastel colors and relaxed atmosphere, Östermalm with the exclusive boutiques and SoFo (South of Folkungagatan), the creative, hipster area on Södermalm.
Find inspiration in the Josef Frank designed patterns at Svenskt Tenn and seek the modern style at Tjallamalla who sell vintage items along with new Swedish fashion designers. Stockholm is a city that appeals to everybody whatever your style is, and I’m sure you will find your favorite place.”
