Swedish designed clothes in feminine vintage style from Emmy Design

Emmy Design is a Swedish women-owned brand that designs and produces feminine clothing in the most beautiful retro and vintage style, inspired by the time and fashion from the 1940s , 1950s and 1960s ! Emmy is particularly known for their focus on fit and their high quality of materials, where they predominantly use natural materials for optimal comfort.
Emmy Design was founded in 2010 by Swedish designer Emmy Nilsson. Emmy graduated from Copenhagen's Fashion and Design School in 2008, and after two years as a freelancer, she started the brand because, on the one hand, she was tired of the job uncertainty as a freelancer, and because, on the other hand, she had a great desire to create something for herself that combined her interest in history and vintage clothing with her skills as a designer. Emmy started the company alone and in 2015 her sister, Lisa, became a partner in the company. Lisa has a degree in business administration, so it was very natural for Emmy to ask her if she wanted to be part of the company. Lisa said yes, and since then the two sisters from Småland have further developed Emmy Design together, so that the brand is now sold in over 50 European retro and vintage stores! It's true power sisterhood!

A small vintage brand with strong values

Emmy Design always aims to produce clothes for their customers that last season after season, both because they want their customers to have the best and because sustainability and concern for the environment form a large part of their company values. That's why they only make two collections a year (spring/summer and autumn/winter), and their clothes are always produced in limited quantities, which helps to maintain the brand's quality standards! Emmy's knitwear is produced in a small factory in Morocco, and their other clothes are made in a small factory in Lithuania. Emmy Design has a good collaboration with both production sites, and when you stand with the clothes in your hands it is easy to both feel and to see that they have been created in competent hands under good conditions.
Furthermore, it also means a lot to the two sisters that women of all sizes and body types can buy their clothes and feel fantastically comfortable, so even though it is a very small company, they design clothes in all sizes, including plus size , and they develop the whole time on their size range, so that in the future they can offer even more types of customers their fantastic clothes.

Mondo Kaos has been carrying Emmy Design since 2011 and we love their timeless designs and exceptional quality that will fit perfectly into your wardrobe, whether you're specifically going for a retro/vintage inspired look or you just want to add some vintage romance to your wardrobe ! We have clothes from Emmy Design all year round, and our selection includes dance-friendly swing pants and feminine A-line skirts , and of course their fantastic knits in the form of different blouses and - not least - their signature cardigans!
High-waisted trousers and skirts in classic vintage style from Emmy Design
We have a small selection of Emmy's fantastic swing trousers and A-line skirts , all of which are perfect both summer and winter, because they are predominantly made of high quality linen and viscose, two natural materials that allow the skin to breathe, which also makes the trousers particularly suitable as dance pants for Lindy Hop and swing dancing!
All our Emmy trousers are cut high in the waist and designed so that they define the waist and emphasize the hips and bottom - some of their models even have an extra high waist that really puts the focus on the waist! In addition, they have wide trouser legs that help to give a nice silhouette and that suit most people!
The skirts from Emmy also have a high waist and are cut in a simple A-line design, which makes them suitable for many different looks and occasions, because they can easily be dressed up or down with a t-shirt or a classic shirt blouse, and they also have belt loops so you can further define the waist with one of your favorite belts!

Emmy Design's signature Cardigans

Our absolute bestseller items from Emmy Design are their signature knits: the Ice Skater Cardigan & the Peggy Sue Cardigan. Both are 100% wool and of very high quality.

The Ice Skater cardigan from Emmy Design

We fell in love with its feminine, classic design and amazing quality from the start, and today it's one of our most popular styles among all the clothes in the store because it goes perfectly with everything. It's especially good for your waist-cut retro and vintage dresses, because the design is specifically made to create the iconic hourglass silhouette with its full shoulders, V-shaped neckline, horizontal cable knit and the short waist. It's simply a fantastic cardigan, and we think it's an absolute must-have in your wardrobe!

Peggy Sue cardigan from Emmy Design

The Ice Skater Cardigan's little sister is called Peggy Sue and this is a permanent part of the spring-summer collection from Emmy Design. The difference from the Ice Skater cardigan is that Peggy Sue is in a thinner knit with a hole pattern. It has the same great cut with full shoulders, V-shaped neckline, horizontal cable knit and the short cut that cuts precisely at the waist so it fits perfectly with your high-waisted trousers, skirts or dresses.
