Sofia Ruutu and By Malina created a collection merging her Scandinavian style with By Malina’s feminine and unique style house codes. A capsule collection is most effective with pieces that integrate into women’s existing wardrobes. The results are items that emphasize mix-and-match with both neutral and bold elements.
Sofia wants to celebrate being a woman, by creating this collection that built that sexiness into her sleek, minimal style through seaming on dresses and trousers that shape and elevate, to show more skin but creating the options to be in your comfort. The woman in mind for this capsule collection is strong, powerful and confident. Sofia wanted to celebrate the female form but retain the masculine and Scandinavian elements. The shapes are both feminine with the essence of masculine cuts, figure-hugging silhouettes and open backs are mixed with floor sweeping lengths and timeless cuts.
The collection consists of fourteen pieces, combining occasionwear and everyday staple pieces. The perfect suit pant in a timeless grey colour, matching with a double-breasted cropped blazer - which can be styled endlessly together or separate. The outerwear consists of the chicest longline Taupe wool coat and an Oat coloured long faux fur coat. Occasion wear dresses in very unique silhouettes, the black dotted tulle dress with a seethrough skirt mixed with a maxi silk dress with a scarf detail than can be styled to create different expressions. The open-back scarf dress with not only the boldness in the exceptional Dark Green but also the mermaid shape and scarf detail. The collection also includes staple knitwear, a wrapped cardigan that can be styled as a dress with boots or elevating your comfortable loungewear look with matching pants, created in a structure so elevating it can still be worn with heels. Lastly, the Ballerina set, a cropped shirt and matching wrap skirt in a classic black colour. Sofia has always had her heart in ballet, and let that inspire her attires.
The pieces you as easily wear today as years from now. It’s also made to last, in materials such as wool, silk and EcoVero viscose. With so much versatility from a single piece, the entire collection can be the foundation of your eternal capsule wardrobe. Choose your new wardrobe hero from Sofia’s collection.
