Stockholm Style with AD

The Swedish capital balances past and present with Scandinavian aplomb, its historic palaces and grand hotels co-existing with cutting-edge boutiques, restaurants and hot-spot bars. And while Stockholm looks like it is perpetually camera-ready for a magazine photo shoot, its vibe remains approachable and laid-back. On this journey with Architectural Digest, we will explore the city’s renowned design, fashion and architecture scenes, meeting with insightful locals along the way, including foodies, designers and the former Swedish consul general.
