If you are one of those people who take the September issue of Vogue very very seriously and hold on to its every single word then you must visit Stockholm. When I came across Vogue’s list of world’s coolest neighbourhoods back in 2014, I just knew I had to visit this place. So, four years later and barely enough money in my bank account, there I was on the fourth floor of a typical minimal scanidinavian design apartment, staring through the window at a questionable cat, sipping my morning coffee in the coolest neighbourhood of the world. Commonly known as Sofo by the locals.
This once dead Stockholm urban sanctuary is now home to some of the hippest bars, cafes and must vist not for profit vintage stores. Now lets go on a journey and discover what makes this enclave so interesting and colorful and how you can have the perfect shopping experience here.
For all your Scandi homedecor needs all in one place. They have a great selection of ceramics and bath products. A must visit on my list. P.S: They have a very cool instagram page as well.
For all your independent Scandi designer clothing needs, housing some very interesting vintage wear and while you’re at it don’t forget to grab a coffee.
For all your moisturiser and hair care needs. I must warn you though, even though their products are a bit expensive once yo go inside you might go a little crazy, plus their packaging is to die for.
Parlans Candy Store
For all your candy needs. After a little retail therepy you must vist this Jetsons inspired decor, 60’s uber chic candy store. They even have a wide selection of popsicles.
For all your accessory needs. An ethical local brand housing a wide range of ecologically prepared natural grain leather wooden clogs, natural rubber shoes and bags. Gifts anyone ?
For all your everyday must have needs. Grandpa is catching the attention of tourists worldwide featuring vintage and Swedidh designer wear with a collection of bags, shoes, clothing, sunglasses, tableware and even quirky stationary that’s so so stilish.
For all your authentic vintage reqirements. My absolute favourite and a must visit, stockholm stadsmission is a complete non profit boutique with a sole aim to provide social care for a more humane society. They even house childrens books and vintage records.
