Flux Shop invents itself every month
The trendy crowd in Stockholm has a new favorite place: The Flux Shop on Tjärhovsgatan 14, Södermalm. Every month they present a new brand. They look for the things we wish were sold in our city, but isn’t. The aim of the company is to create Nordic clothing based on a conceptual approach to the process, where experiments with forms provide the setting for the visual motive in the design.
The danish avantgardist Barbara I Gongini is being sold until November 25. Then a new designer will be shown.
You will also find a growing collection of "Flux-works". To buy or participate in. Paintings, sculptures, dinners, lectures and unexpected services. Anything is possible. Fluxus is an art-ism based on humor and simplicity. Fluxus is not a movement or a style. It is an attitude. The shop has only been open a week, but already the leading auction house Bukowskis will will be auctioning an artwork from Flux Shop on the 17th of november.

I really like Dala horses, but there are plenty of trendy souvernirs to buy when you are in Stockholm. Trendy clogs, black and white fabrics and tray are just some of the ideas.
