Sustainable fashion brands are everywhere. This has given way for more acceptance of the concepts that lead brands to circularity. Out of Stockholm, Sweden, the Scandinavian minimalist brand, Filippa K has founded the label with the motto “Designed To Last.” Circularity can mean many things for a lot of brands, and for Filippa K it started in 1993, and now it goes beyond just the materials they use in their designs.

Recently launching Limited Edition and Preowned which introduced the brand's circular approach to fashion, Filippa K takes their slow fashion ideals out of minimal design into intricate avant-garde designs. The Swedish design house has collaborated with Stina Randestad, an emerging designer hailed for her innovations in material combinations and unique fabrication techniques. Randestad would transform the clean lines of Filippa K into one-of-a-kind statement pieces as a blueprint for circular luxury fashion.

Randestad recalls the culmination of the “project’s outcome [as] twofold for me – it shows an artistic approach to upcycling, but it also shows an established brand taking a leap of faith, investing in a designer whose aesthetic isn’t perhaps associated with the traditional Scandinavian look.” She has taken bold steps for Filippa K clothing in this direction but as an admirer of its aesthetic. She continues, “It’s been a dream to use Filippa K garments as the raw materials when creating new ones – it illustrates that when you start with a high-quality foundation, remade pieces can be luxurious and long-lasting.”

Filippa K uses sustainable fibers, organic, natural materials, recycled polyester, and mono fibers or mixed polymers. With the Filippa K x Stinarand collaboration, the label decided to upcycle some of its finest archival pieces, rather than use recycled materials. This approach to circularity explores Filippa K’s slow fashion concepts.

Second-hand Filippa K garments were examined and selected for their durability and vitality. Stina Randstad, or Stinarand for this collaboration, reconstructed those selected garments into six bespoke pieces that leverage imperfections into sartorial abstraction. Stinarand describes the final products as “sculptural yet wearable,” alluding to the couture-like revisions of the minimal designs of the Filippa K label.

Stinarand says of her experience collaborating with Filippa K, “I’m very impressed at the level of commitment Filippa K is showing with their sustainability work, as well as their investment in creativity. It’s vital for brands to engage in larger initiatives of course, but also to provide a platform for up-and-coming designers to express their vision. Filippa K has entrusted me with the unique opportunity to freely explore how second-hand garments, samples, and claims can be transformed into something completely different.”

Working alongside the Filippa K team, Stinarand surgically created six unique garments, displaying shapes with fabric and textures that radiate a sense of liveliness and exuberance. The six upcycled Filippa K pieces are The Collage Cardigan, The Mesh Dress, The Layered Puffer, The Wavy Knit, The Shirt Dress, and The Metallic Blazer.

The Collage Cardigan is an oversize-crafted, collage pattern construction fabricated from five upcycled mohair wool Filippa K sweaters. Stinarand used other scraps and leather belts to create her signature “stiff and stretchy” wave design technique to construct the cardigan. She applies this technique by stitching together alternating colors of the knitwear panels. The cardigan has sections of black embossed croc leather details.

Stinarand created The Mesh Dress from scraps of three upcycled Filippa K dresses and two prototype garments in various materials like silk, satin, and triacetate. The asymmetric layers form a three-dimensional fabric technique using laser cuts for the outer layer fringed mesh. The black lines are a high-shine textile foil placed on discarded plastic.

The Layered Puffer is a fun piece to look at, and hopefully, as fun to wear. The complex, high-neck body-con jacket also has a zip-front dress underneath. Stinarand used four down puffer jackets in water-repellent polyamide from a previous Filippa K collection and four pairs of Filippa K’s Soft Sport technical jersey leggings. Stitching circular panels of a deconstructed puffer jacket, covering the overlapping layer, Stinarand creates a spherical structure. Blue and orange satin-wrapped cotton rope trim with a heavy zig-zag embroidery complete the puffer’s architecture.

The slim, Wavy Knit blouse uses viscose elastane from four upcycled and hand-dyed Filippa K milano sweaters. The Wavy Knit is another “stiff and stretchy” wave design from Stinarand, on the front and side of this fiery blouse, she stitched foil-coated heavy cotton canvas ribbons together with knitted material.

There is also the mini dress design, The Shirt Dress, constructed from four upcycled Filippa K menswear cotton poplin shirts, two womenswear cotton poplin dresses, and six pairs of Soft Sport gloss leggings in the stretch-polyamide. At the front and back of the dress are a sun flare design, a technique accomplished through stitching shirt material into stretched legging fabric, all the way down the skirt and vertical panels.

The final piece from the Filippa K x Stinarand collaboration is The Metallic Blazer. This oversized wool menswear blazer from a past season is reinterpreted with a mirrored signature pattern. Printed through a heat transfer process, Stinarand shapes the metallic plastic foil in blue, silver, and holographic green and orange. The abstract arrangement forms the letters FKSR as a sign-off to the collaboration of creativity and circularity between Stina Randestad and Filippa K. 

Stinarand meticulously identified and selected pieces with qualities that indicated the potential of new life. These materials inform her creative vision and introduce unexpected textile combinations that implement techniques that transform the minimal, understated Filippa K aesthetic into one-of-a-kind fashion statements on circular luxury fashion.

Koenigsegg

Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars

This article is about the Swedish car manufacturer. For the former small German state, see Königsegg.

Not to be confused with Koenig Specials.

Koenigsegg Automotive AB (Swedish: [ˈkø̌ːnɪɡsɛɡ] (About this soundlisten)) is a Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars, based in Ängelholm, Skåne County, Sweden.

Company[edit]

The factory building in Ängelholm, Sweden

The company was founded in 1994 in Sweden by Christian von Koenigsegg, with the intention of producing a "world-class" sports car. Many years of development and testing led to the CC8S, the company's first street-legal production car which was introduced in 2002.

In 2006, Koenigsegg began production of the CCX, which uses an engine created in-house especially for the car. The goal was to develop a car homologated for use worldwide, particularly the United States whose strict regulations did not allow the import of earlier Koenigsegg models.

In March 2009, the CCXR was listed by Forbes as one of "the world's most beautiful cars".[3]

In December 2010, the Agera won the BBC Top Gear Hypercar of the Year Award.[4]

Apart from developing, manufacturing and selling the Koenigsegg line of sports cars, Koenigsegg is also involved in "green technology" development programmes beginning with the CCXR ("Flower Power") flex-fuel sports car and continuing through the present with the Jesko. Koenigsegg is also active in development programs of plug-in electric cars' systems and next-generation reciprocating engine technologies. Koenigsegg has also developed a camless piston engine which found its first application in the Gemera, which was introduced in 2020.[5]

Koenigsegg develops and produces most of the main systems, subsystems and components needed for their cars in-house instead of relying on subcontractors.[6]

In January 2019, Koenigsegg sold a 20% stake in the company to Swedish electric car manufacturer (Egstrand & Lundgren), National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS), for US$171 million.[7]

History[edit]

Prototypes and production[edit]

The Koenigsegg CC prototype which became the basis for future models of the company

The initial design of the CC was penned down by Christian von Koenigsegg. Industrial designer David Crafoord realised the sketches as a 1:5 scale model. This model was later scaled up in order to create the base plug for the initial Koenigsegg prototype that was finished in 1996. During the next years, the prototype went through extensive testing and several new prototypes were built. The prototypes initially used an Audi V8 engine but after the engine supply contract fell through, the next candidate was the Flat-12 race engine developed by Motori Moderni for the Scuderia Coloni Formula one team, in which this engine was raced under the Subaru badge in the 1990 season. These Subaru 1235 engines were purchased and modified for use in the CC; this deal failed when the founder of Motori Moderni died, sending the company into bankruptcy.[8][9] Eventually Koenigsegg developed its own engine based on the Ford Modular architecture which was used in its early sports cars. Later on, Koenigsegg developed their own engines from scratch, including control systems and transmissions, which is very unusual for a small size sports car producer.

Factory history[edit]

Christian von Koenigsegg got the idea to build his own car after watching the Norwegian stop-motion animated movie Pinchcliffe Grand Prix in his youth.[10] He took his first steps in the world of business in his early 20s running a trading company called Alpraaz in Stockholm, Sweden. Alpraaz exported food from Europe to the developing world. The success of this venture gave von Koenigsegg the necessary financial standing to launch his chosen career as a car manufacturer.

Initially, Koenigsegg Automotive was based in Olofström. In 1997, the company needed larger production facilities and moved to a farm, just outside Ängelholm. On 22 February 2003, one of the production facilities caught fire and was badly damaged. Koenigsegg then acquired an abandoned air field to use as his new factory building and in late 2003, one of the two large fighter-jet hangars and an office building were converted into a car factory. Since then, the company is located near the still-active Ängelholm airport, clients can arrive by private jet nearby. Koenigsegg controls and uses the former military runway for shakedown runs of production cars and high-speed testing.

The Koenigsegg badge was designed in 1994 by Jacob Låftman, based on the heraldic coat of arms of the Koenigsegg family. The shield has been the family's coat of arms since the 12th century when a family member was knighted by the Germany-based Holy Roman Empire.

Ghost Badge[edit]

After moving into the abandoned airfield, which once housed the Swedish air force's "Johan Röd" squadron, Koenigsegg adopted the "ghost symbol" that the squadron had on their planes, which were Saab AJS37 Viggens aircraft (the squad also used the English phrase "The show must go on" on their aircraft as well) as a tribute to the squadron. The badge is seen on models built in the factory that was converted from their hangar.

Attempted purchase of Saab[edit]

On 12 June 2009, the media reported that Koenigsegg Group, consisting of Koenigsegg Automotive AB, Christian von Koenigsegg, Bård Eker and a group of investors led by Mark Bishop had signed a letter of intent with Saab to take over the brand from General Motors. General Motors confirmed on June 16 that they had chosen Koenigsegg Group as the buyer of Saab Automobile.[11] The deal, set to close 30 September 2009, included US$600 million in financing from the European Investment Bank, guaranteed by the Swedish government. By comparison, in 2008 Koenigsegg with its staff of 45 produced 18 cars at an average price of US$1 million each; Saab employed 3,400 workers and made more than 93,000 cars.[12]

General Motors announced on 18 August that the deal had been signed, although certain financing details remained to be completed. On 9 September 2009, Koenigsegg announced that BAIC was going to join as a minority stakeholder in Koenigsegg.[13]

In November 2009, Koenigsegg decided not to finalise the purchase of Saab and therefore, left the negotiations. The timing uncertainty of finalisation of the take over was the reason Koenigsegg stated for leaving the deal.[14]

Models[edit]

A Koenigsegg CC prototype was first publicised in 1996, while the full carbon fibre production prototype having white paintwork was finally unveiled at the 2000 Paris Motor Show. The first customer took delivery of a red CC8S in 2002 at the Geneva Auto Show and four more cars were built that year. Koenigsegg was established in Asia later that year with a premiere at the Seoul Auto Show. In 2004, the new CCR, which was basically a high performance variant of the CC8S, was unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show; only 14 were produced.

In 2006, Koenigsegg introduced the CCX, a new model, that was developed in order to meet worldwide regulations for road use. This meant the car had to go through extensive development in order to meet the latest and most stringent safety and emission standards that the world's authorities demanded; Koenigsegg had to, for example, develop their own engines and other related technologies. Furthermore, Koenigsegg is the only low-volume sports car manufacturer to pass the new European pedestrian impact tests. Just after Koenigsegg passed this test, the requirement was deemed too complicated for compliance by low-volume manufacturers, so it is now unnecessary to meet these regulations if the production volume of a given model is less than 10,000 cars annually.

In 2007, Koenigsegg premiered the CCXR, a biofuel/flex-fuel version of the CCX. The car features a modified engine, fuel system, and engine management system that enables the car to run on normal gasoline or ethanol, and in any mixture between these two fuels. Ethanol has a higher octane rating compared to regular fuel and has an internal cooling effect on the combustion chamber, which allows for increased performance.

In 2009, Koenigsegg released information about a special edition car called the Trevita, of which three were planned to be made but only two were finished due to technical problems. The Trevita, which translates into English as "three whites", has a body made entirely of Koenigsegg's proprietary material consisting of diamond-coated carbon fibre. The Trevita is based on the CCXR, and therefore has a power output of 1,032 PS (759 kW; 1,018 hp) when running on biofuel.[15]

In 2010 Koenigsegg released information at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show about a new model called the Agera, which translates into English as "take action/act". The Agera features a Koenigsegg developed 5.0-litre V8 engine coupled with variable turbo geometry turbochargers having a power output of 973 PS (716 kW; 960 hp), mated to a newly developed 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The Agera's design follows a clear lineage from the previous Koenigsegg sports cars, but adds many special new features, such as a wider front track, new styling and aerodynamic features, and a new interior; including a new lighting technique called "Ghost Light" by the manufacturer which consists of microscopic holes to hide the interior lighting until it is turned on, which then shines through what appears to be solid aluminium.[16][17] Production of the Agera ended in July 2018 after being in production for eight years when two of the three final edition cars were presented to their customers.

At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg presented a new model named the Regera, which translates into English as to "reign" or "rule". The Regera uses the Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) transmission. Below 48 km/h (30 mph), motive power is by two electric motors on the rear wheels and the internal combustion engine (ICE) is disconnected. Above 48 km/h (30 mph), the ICE is connected by a fixed ratio transmission with no gearbox, torque vectoring by the previously mentioned electric motors and boosted by a third electric motor attached to the driveshaft.[18][19]

Koenigsegg initially based its engine on a V8 engine block from Ford Racing. These engines powered the initial run of the CC monikered cars. The block for the 4.8 L (4,800 cc) V8 in the CCX (Competition Coupe Ten, to celebrate ten years of the company) was cast for Koenigsegg by Grainger & Worrall of the UK who also cast the block for the Agera's 5.0-litre engine[20]

In late 2018, Koenigsegg showed potential customers in Australia the replacement of the Agera via VR. Teaser sketches were released by the company at the same time. Initially, the model was rumoured to be called "Ragnarok" but the public unveil of the car at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show revealed the name to be Jesko, after the founder's father Jesko Von Koenigsegg.

The Jesko uses a development of the 5.0-litre V8 engine used in the Agera which has a power output of 1,298 PS (955 kW; 1,280 hp) on normal gasoline and has a power output of 1,625 PS (1,195 kW; 1,603 hp) and 1,500 N⋅m (1,106 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,100 rpm on E85 biofuel.[21] The engine is mated to a 9-speed multi-clutch transmission having seven clutches called the "Light Speed Transmission" (LST) by the manufacturer. The focus of this transmission is to have faster shift times. The car will come in either a high-downforce, track-oriented or a low-drag, high speed Absolut variant.

On 3 March 2020, the Gemera was unveiled on an online broadcast. It is scheduled to be released to the public in 2022. There will be a limited production of 300 units. This will be Koenigsegg's first four-seater vehicle. The vehicle is powered by a small engine called the Tiny Friendly Giant (TFG). The car also features full-length Koenigsegg Automated Twisted Synchrohelix Actuation Doors (KATSAD).[22]

List of models[edit]

Records[edit]

Koenigsegg CCR at Broughtons, Berkshire, UK

On 28 February 2005, at 12:08 pm local time, in Nardò, Italy, the CCR broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest production car in the world, having attained 387.866 km/h (241.009 mph) on the Nardò Ring (a circular track of 7.8 mi (12.6 km) circumference), breaking the record previously held by the McLaren F1.[55][56][57] It held the record until September 2005 when the Bugatti Veyron broke the record again by attaining a speed of 408.47 km/h (253.81 mph), proven both by Car and Driver and Top Gear. Both of the records set by Bugatti and McLaren were set on Volkswagen's own test-track Ehra-Lessien, which features a 5.6 miles (9.0 km) straight.[58]

In 2008 the German magazine sport auto conducted a 0–300–0 km/h (0–186–0 mph) test for production cars, with the CCX winning the event in a total time of 29.2 seconds.[59] The CCX also accelerated from 0–200 km/h in 9.3 seconds.[60]

In September 2011, the Agera R broke the Guinness World Record for 0–300 km/h with a time of 14.53 seconds and a 0-300-0 km/h time of 21.19 seconds.[61] Koenigsegg improved this record with the One:1 on 8 June 2015. It attained 0–300 km/h in 11.92 seconds and 0-300-0 km/h in 17.95 seconds (a 3.24 sec improvement over the 2011 Koenigsegg Agera R record), it also attained 0–322 km/h (0–200 mph) in 14.328 seconds and 0-322-0 km/h in 20.71 seconds.[62]

The Agera RS World Record Car on display at the 2018 North American International Auto Show

On 1 October 2017, an Agera RS set an unofficial record for 0–400–0 km/h (0–249–0 mph) with a time of 36.44 seconds. The record was set at the Vandel Airfield in Denmark and broke the record of 42 seconds set by the Bugatti Chiron a few weeks prior.[63]

On 4 November 2017, an Agera RS set a new record for the world's fastest production car with an average speed of 447.19 km/h (277.87 mph). The record breaking run was done on a closed 11 mi (18 km) section of Nevada State Route 160 in Pahrump, Nevada, United States. On the same day they also beat their own 0–400–0 km/h record they set a few weeks prior (33.29 seconds compared to the old record of 36.44 seconds).[46][47] It was later confirmed via the instrumentation that the car topped out at 457.94 km/h (284.55 mph)[46][47]

On 23 September 2019, Koenigsegg set a new 0-400-0 km/h world record when a Koenigsegg Regera completed the run in 31.49 seconds. This was 1.8 seconds faster than Koenigsegg’s previously unbeaten record, set by the Agera RS in 2017.[64]

6 of the best Stockholm holiday homes for rent right now

Stockholm is a city ensconced in nature, spread across 14 islands, as well as thousands of skerries and rocks. So there’s something for everyone in the Swedish capital, whether you’re after a culture fix or an adventure in the great outdoors – or both.

We’ve picked out six of the best Stockholm apartments for rent across the wider archipelago that offer a dose of design inspiration to boot.

Villa Drottningholm by Ralph Erskine

Villa Drottningholm, Stockholm - holiday homes for rent in Stockholm

From £1,820 per week via The Modern House
3 Bedrooms

Villa Drottningholm takes its name from the nearby Drottningholm Palace and was designed by Byker Wall architect Ralph Erskine for his family between 1956 and 1963. Its bold, Modernist design is a stark contrast to its historic neighbours, and it was considered pretty radical at the time of its construction. The Stockholm rental property can sleep up to seven people.

Sea Cottage in Saxarfjärden

Sea Cottage for rent in Stockholm via Airbnb

From £174 per night via Airbnb
1 bedroom

You can’t get much closer to the water than this cosy couples’ cottage in Saxarfjärden, which nestles into a cliff beside the sea. Owned by an architect, the Stockholm archipelago apartment is available to rent via Airbnb and it’s pretty lo-fi, so don’t expect such luxuries as a flushing toilet or hot water on demand… What you do get is peace and quiet, and unrivalled views across the Stockholm archipelago – especially from its dining terrace.

Contemporary Kungsholmen penthouse

Kungsholmen penthouse Stockholm apartment for rent

From £329 per night via Airbnb
3 bedrooms

If you don’t fancy roughing it, this Stockholm apartment is a contemporary bolthole for exploring the city. It has been recently refurbished, with the traditional Swedish stove ditched in favour of a cool concrete fireplace in the living room. Textures have been sumptuously layered across the three bedroom abode, including marble counters in the kitchen, crisp white walls and a mix of parquet and stone flooring. A bonus is the balcony with views out over the surrounding rooftops.

Nacka industrial loft

Nacka Industrial loft

From £140 per night via Airbnb
3 bedrooms

For rent in the Nacka area of Stockholm County, this holiday apartment sits within a converted industrial building and offers proximity to the city – a 10 minute train ride away – and the lake for swimming. A simple monochrome colour palette has been used across the loft’s light-drenched interiors, with a few bursts of colour coming courtesy of kilim rugs and wall hangings.

The Heleneborgsgatan Residence in Södermalm

Stockholm holiday home for rent

From €200 per night via Kid & Coe
2 bedrooms

The light-filled Victorian townhouse sits in the much sought-after Honstull area of Södermalm. Its ground floor houses an open-plan kitchen and living room, while two bedrooms are tucked on the level above. Interiors combine period features with a cosy Scandi vibe, and the Stockholm home – for rent via Kid & Coe – has views of the Riddarfjärden from every room. It is crowned by roof terrace and has access to a leafy garden.

Casa Barone in Ingarö

Casa Barone

From £968 via Airbnb
4 bedrooms

Casa Barone was built in 2007 by Stockholm-based practice Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff, and digs into the side of a steep waterside plot in Ingarö, Stockholm County. Its layout is ‘topsy turvy’ to capitalise on its lakeside views, with the kitchen and living room filling the top level – and branching off to an outdoor terrace – and bedrooms tucked below. Both levels have floor-to-ceiling glass and face onto the water.

Tensions grow over Ukraine with the trading of threats

Fears that Russia would invade its neighbor or seek to undermine the government of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy have dominated Blinken's travels this week to meet with European allies.

Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met Thursday on the sidelines of a ministerial meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in Stockholm, Sweden.

“The United States and our allies and partners are deeply concerned by evidence that Russia has made plans for significant aggressive moves against Ukraine, including efforts to destabilize Ukraine from within and large-scale military operations," Blinken told reporters.

During his meeting with Blinken, Lavrov charged that the West was “playing with fire” by denying Russia a say in any further NATO expansion into countries of the former Soviet Union. Zelenskyy has pushed for Ukraine to join the alliance, which holds out the promise of membership but hasn't set a a timeline.

“I want to make it crystal clear: Turning our neighbors into a bridgehead for confrontation with Russia, the deployment of NATO forces in the regions strategically important for our security, is categorically unacceptable,” Lavrov said he told the OSCE meeting.

The United States and its European allies have struggled to warn Russia off any military action and reaffirm support for Ukraine without moving so forcefully as to give Russian President Vladimir Putin a pretext to invade.

American officials and their allies acknowledge the uncertainties, including whether Putin is prepared to invade Ukraine or is maneuvering to bring President Joe Biden into one-on-one talks on security concessions.

Putin said Wednesday that Moscow would seek Western guarantees precluding any further NATO expansion and deployment of its weapons near Russia’s borders. Lavrov followed up on Putin’s call for a new security arrangement, stating that reaching an agreement on a set of “long-term and legally binding security guarantees is imperative to prevent sliding into a confrontational scenario.”

Alexander Vershbow, a former U.S. ambassador to Russia and former deputy secretary general of NATO, said he sees little or no prospect of the U.S. or NATO providing Putin with such guarantees. “He’s simply not going to get” an agreement to rule out further NATO expansion, Vershbow told The Associated Press.

Vershbow also ruled out the U.S. or NATO agreeing to halt the kind of military assistance they have been providing to Ukraine since 2014, including arms, training and intelligence sharing.

Russia and Ukraine have remained locked in a tense tug-of-war since Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in 2014 following the ouster of the country’s Kremlin-friendly president and threw its weight behind a separatist insurgency in eastern Ukraine, which has killed more than 14,000.

Vershbow said Russia would not have an easy time if it chose to invade Ukraine, whose military is better equipped and more capable than it was in 2014. “It would be very costly for the Russians in terms of casualties,” he said.

Ukraine and the U.S. estimate that Russia has at least 90,000 troops on its border with Ukraine, while Russia charged this week that Ukraine has amassed about 125,000 troops, or about half its military, near the rebel-controlled areas in the east.

Addressing the OSCE meeting, Blinken urged Russia “to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity to de-escalate, reverse the recent troop buildup" and “return forces to normal peaceful positions.”

The Kremlin has voiced concern that Ukraine may use force to reclaim control of the rebel east. And adding to the tensions, the head of a Russian-allied, self-proclaimed separatist republic in the east appeared on Russian state television to say that he could turn to Moscow for military assistance if the region faced a Ukrainian attack.

Ukrainian officials have denied an intention to reclaim the rebel regions by force.

Blinken sought Thursday to pre-empt Russian claims that Ukraine was threatening Russian interests. “Ukraine is in no way posing a threat to Russia or seeking a confrontation that would justify a Russian military intervention,” the American secretary of state insisted.

Blinken also met separately with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba. Kuleba tweeted afterward that Ukraine and the United States “are closely working together on developing a comprehensive deterrence package, including severe economic sanctions, to demotivate Russia from further aggressive moves.”

John Herbst, a former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, said Thursday that Putin appeared to be “testing Ukraine. He’s testing the West.”

Herbst, in a discussion at the Atlantic Council think tank, argued the Biden administration’s response has been strong so far, leaving Putin “hoping now simply to get some sort of concession either from Ukraine or perhaps from the United States.”

“Putin is definitely as serious as he could be” in the standoff, countered Ukraine analyst Hanna Shelest.

The company was founded by Erling Persson in 1947, when he opened his first shop in Västerås, Sweden.[11] The shop, called Hennes (Swedish for "hers"), exclusively sold women's clothing. A store was opened in Norway in 1964.[12] In 1968, Persson acquired the hunting apparel retailer Mauritz Widforss in Stockholm, which led to the inclusion of a menswear collection in the product range and the name change to Hennes & Mauritz.[11]

Marketing and collaborations[edit]

In November 2004, select stores offered an exclusive collection by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. The press reported large crowds and that the initial inventories in the larger cities were sold out within an hour,[21] although the clothes were still available in less fashion-sensitive areas until the company redistributed them to meet with demand.[22]

In November 2006, the company launched a collection by Stella McCartney and, also in November 2006, by avant-garde Dutch designers Viktor & Rolf. In March 2007, it launched another collaboration designed by the pop star Madonna.[23]

For spring and summer 2009, the British designer Matthew Williamson created two exclusive ranges for the company – the first being a collection of women's clothes released in select stores. The second collection saw Williamson branch into menswear for the first time, only in select stores.

For Spring/Summer 2011, the company collaborated with fashion blogger Elin Kling, which was available at select stores only.
