British – ever so Nordic


Nordiska museet

2020-03-18 — 2022-08-31

It is British – but Nordic British!

Cardigans, jumpers and trench coats. Tartans and Doc Martens boots. Pyjamas and a cup of tea, a beer after the football match, tennis on Tuesdays and a stroll in the woods wearing a raincoat and wellingtons. These parts of Nordic everyday life are so common that we might not think about where they come from.

The Nordic countries are part of a globalised world. During centuries of trading contacts we have been influenced by nations in a position of power, such as France, Germany, Britain and more recently the USA. This exhibition is about Nordic fashion, clothes style and lifestyle with influences from Britain.

The narrative runs from the Middle Ages to the present day, a story told through fabrics, patterns, clothes and other things that have been shaped into a part of everyday life in Scandinavia.
