    Gudrun Sjödén: Ladies, look unique

    by Sjalen Updated Mar 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gudrun is a Swedish designer who have made herself quite a name and today has shops in the 3 main cities (plus one in Germany). Her clothes are very personal and in a comfortable Scandinavian cut, yet every year inspired by other cultures. In the last years, she has had Chinese embroidered jackets, Russian coats and other things to vary with her cotton basic wear in cheerful colours or with flower pattern. She also has some assesoirs and a few things for your house.

    What to buy: Comfy, yet stylish sweaters in cheerful colour mixes.

    What to pay: A bit more than average but this is not H&M. Still affordable compared to world fashion gurus.

  • Supermarkets! Beware!: Booze n supermarkets

    by mattalthor Written Jan 12, 2007

    Beware!

    In Sweden, they dont serve strong stuff in supermarkets. Maybe up to about 3.5%. I could only find Cider up to 2.5%. No wine at all.

    For alcohol, its pubs, restaurants or the State Owned Alko shop I'm afraid

    What to buy: Pear Cider

    What to pay: Drink costs a lot but no more than elsewhere in say Denmark

    More shops: Hamngatan

    by cheezecake_deli Written Jun 2, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The area around Hamngatan contains many shops and department stores - it seems to be a popular place for Stockholmers to shop. It's much like any high street shopping in the western world - pleasant but a bit sedate.

    What to buy: Clothes mainly.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the place to be if you are looking for the non-traditional shops... Overhere you can find more clothes for youngster, a bit trendy or a bit alternative! It´s located on Södermalm, the place to be in Stockholm if you want to see the new generation!

    There are also a lot of nice bars and restaurants

    Subterrania: Goin' deeper underground

    by bobs12 Written Nov 25, 2005

    Not shop, rather an entire underground shopping complex. Excellent in cold weather (which Stockholm has in abundance), you can walk for miles under the main city streets where it's warm and cosy.

    What to buy: Er, I wouldn't buy anything, it's all rather expensive.

    What to pay: You can expect to spend every last euro.

  • Tall Women's Fashions

    by peach93 Written Nov 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing that I loved about Stockholm was the selection of clothing stores for women there. There are clothing stores for women everywhere, of course, but if you are really tall like me and have, well, a larger than average bustline, finding cool clothes and lingere can sometimes get tricky. In Sweden everything fits! : ) I was thrilled to death, I have to tell you. It was also great buying shoes there because nearly everything was in my size, whereas at home I have some trouble sometimes. It was heavenly. The styles and colors of everything were also right on. Highly recommended.

    Shopping in Stockholm: Shopping in Stockholm

    by sue_stone Written Aug 29, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We did quite a bit of shopping on our weekend in Stockholm....didn't really buy anything, but plenty of looking!

    In the city, there is a large shopping area, made up of pedestrian malls, shopping centres and department stores. Most shops are open 7 days and you should be able to find everything you might need here.

    We browsed through many of the chain shops, enjoyed a visit to a fancy department store called NK (www.nk.se) and walked up and down the pedestrian malls, pausing to look in home ware type shops and the occasional shoe shop.

    What to buy: In the old town there are loads of tourist/souvenir type shops (as there always are), but there are also some interesting gift shops and local craft type places. Best idea is to wander around and do a bit of window shopping, with the occasional visit inside for a closer look.

    We did come across one great toy/children's wear shop called Kalika (Osterlanggatan 18) where we couldn't resist making a purchase for a relative's new baby.

    What to pay: Not that much cheaper than London unfortunately.....

    Gallerian shopping centre shopping in the old town shopping at a market one for all you Americans! shop signs near the big malls

    KappAhl: Clothes again

    by Maline Written May 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KappAhl is like Lindex a clothes store. In approach I would say it falls between the bolder styles of H&M and the more conservative style of Lindex. KappAhl is very popular with families with children, thay have lots of kids clothes. There is also a lingerie section, accessories and swimwear if the season is right. H&M. Lindex and KAppAhl are also typically found in every Swedish town, small or big.

    What to buy: Basic fashion, sometimes a bit bolder clothes. Nothing cool for your teenager though...

    Lindex: Womens clothes

    by Maline Written May 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lindex is a chain of stores that sell clothes, mainly womens clothes I think. The style of the clothes is quite toned down, nothing too loud or strange is for sale here. Their range of lingerie is quite wide and very popular with Swedish women whereas their regular clothes are not as popular. If you are a plus size woman you may want to have a browse through their racks though, they have quite an extensive plus size collection.

    What to buy: Most popular is their underwear and swimwear range. Apart from that and other clothes they also sell affordable accessories, sunglasses, belts and the likes. There is also kid's clothes.

    What to pay: A pair of trousers from 30$ perhaps. A pair of sunglasses for 10$.

    Lush: You can smell it a few blocks away ...

    by Maline Updated May 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Lush stores are not unique to Sweden, rather they are orginally from Britain I think. But since they opened across the bigger cities in Sweden there has been a lush-mania creeping up.

    What to buy: This is definitely the place to go for bubble bath, soads, shampoos and other bath items.
    There is skincare also, but no make-up.
    A personal favourite is the Celestial skin-creme and the Figues and Leaves soap bar...
    Hmm, but then if you have a tub in your hotel room, get a bath bomb to wash away the city dust in the evening.

    What to pay: From 2 US dollars/ 2 Euros and up...!
