A STYLISH SUMMER IN STOCKHOLM

Jean Paul Gaultier is coming to Stockholm this summer - are you?

Stockholm has been style capital for centuries - from "Queer" Queen Kristina in the 17th century, to the golden days of Greta Garbo and not to mention modern day style icons like Robyn, Marcus Schenkenberg and Alexander Skarsgard.

But this summer, Sweden's capital city ups its Fashionista credentials because gay fashion icon Jean Paul Gaultier is coming to Stockholm.

From June 15 - September 22, Stockholm's Arkitekturmuseet will present 'The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: from the Sidewalk to the Catwalk. This is the first international exhibition devoted to the celebrated French couturier, a retrospective of his work. According to Gaultier there are no rules in fashion, everything depends on the limits of one imagination, so it is fitting that that this show makes a stop at Europe's alternative style capital. <http://www.arkitekturmuseet-gaultier.com/>

You just have to look around the city to understand why Stockholm is seriously cool. Home to cult-labels like ACNE and CHEAP MONDAY, through to the multi-national trendsetting duo Hennes and Mauritz (H&M) - whose collaborations with both the pop and style world have you queueing round the block whenever it launches. And shopaholics be ready to be indulged. From designer brands to vintage chic, Stockholm's shopping districts from SoFo to Ostermalm will give you some serious style cred.

And if it's style you want, style you're going to get. A citybreak to gay and lesbian friendly Stockholm is an amazing way to upgrade your weekend. Firstly it's a beautiful city of beautiful people. Secondly, there's so much to offer in way of fashion and culture for the discerning visitor. Thirdly, Stockholm is less expensive than you'd think - a recent Skyscanner survey puts an average weekend break to Stockholm cheaper than Madrid, Paris or Barcelona. All in all, this is THE city to visit this summer.
