Born in New York City, fashion designer Elin Nyström attended FIT before founding her downtown-chic clothing brand Stylein in 2001. In 2003 Nyström moved Stylein’s headquarters to Sweden — following up a few years later with her first concept store: a combination studio, shop, and showroom. In addition to being a strong presence in the Swedish market, Stylein’s elegantly simple leggings, chiffon blouses, silk dresses and printed rompers, and other designs “inspired by energies of life” have worldwide appeal. You’ll find them everywhere, from Copenhagen and Helsinki to Tokyo.

StyleinMinimalist lovers, prepare to be seduced: Equally sexy and sumptuous, these streamlined designs by Swedish designer Elin Nyström exude pure downtown sophistication. Soft draping and even softer fabrics — marled jersey, lighter-than-air silk — enhance knit dresses, plunging V-neck tops, sheer tanks, maxi skirts, and more in a color palette where classic blacks and greys mingle with muted pastels and kaleidoscope prints.
Sparkle & ShineA glittering wardrobe isn't just for night owls. Spring is the season for sporting a little shine 24/7. Crystal jewels, silver sandals, and sequined tanks and skirts are perfectly appropriate for the daylight hours (pair with lightweight blazers and tees for the office or errands). Of course, there's no stopping you from dressing up these pieces when the sun goes down. Head out for some after-hours fun in jacquard cocktail numbers, embellished jackets, and wax-coating skinny jeans.
