If there's anyone who knows anything about clean, fluid lines and sharp silhouettes, it's the Scandivians. Tiger of Sweden (one of my favourite brands) sent this arresting monochrome look down the catwalk at their Spring/Summer 09 show. There's just so much to love here. A neat cropped black jacket teamed with a diaphanous plunging white jersey top (so Halston), worn with the shiniest, slouchiest masculine trousers (with roll ups).
