Katherine Waldenström delivers a timeless and sustainable collection that
fits easily into the varied and busy lifestyles of the contemporary urban woman.

Kishti Tomita x 2
On June 2nd we Found Our Voice
Breathing effects not just your voice but also your body movements, feelings, and gestures. As women we are taught to breathe from our chests, instead of our stomachs. Short breaths lead to stress, while big,
deep breaths from our core bring a sense of calm.
Yawning is a stress release so when we cut off our yawns we increase our stress levels. Kishti says we need to embrace our yawns for full stress reduction.
It was a wonderful evening that was made possible only through the enormous efforts of Kishti, who brought her bountiful talents and charm to the event, giving everyone an opportunity to discover something new about themselves.
Our second event, Morning Meditation with Kishti, will take place June 4th at 7.30 am. The event promises to help recalibrate your morning routine so that the day that follows is mindful and fulfilling. We’ll be serving healthy smoothies –
perfect for an early morning boost.
Unfortunately this event is now full but to get updates on future events, including more with Kishti Tomita, follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
Stock Sale continues
Our Spring Stock Sale brought many new faces to the Katarina Waldenström Stockholm Showroom this month. It was a delight to meet so many
new people,as well as to say hello to old friends.
As we prepare for new arrivals, particularly the addition of silk to the collection, we have extended the Stock Sale through mid-summer, so be sure to take the chance to stop by, say hello, and add to your effortless and elegant summer wardrobe. Select opening hours are announced at the beginning of each week on both Facebook and Twitter. That’s also where you’ll find announcements about events and special offers.
The Linda Longsleeve, in a variety of colour options, is just one item that will take you from the yoga studio to the lunch table – or perhaps to your sofa for a relaxing evening with friends. Casual, comfortable – and now just 300 SEK.
Lovely, gorgeous, beneficial cabbage
You might be wondering how a glorious head of cabbage can inspire a clothing line. To my mind, there’s nothing more stylish and contemporary than a healthy woman who knows how to take care of herself, both for her own benefit and for those whom she loves – and I find that anything that contributes to us all being our best selves is something that helps me bring my best to both my life and my work.
For far too long cabbage was seen as the poor cousin of the vegetable family, seen as old-fashioned and tasteless. I’m happy to see that cabbage is now enjoying a resurgence in popularity, with its wide-ranging health benefits being newly discovered. Not only does cabbage (particularly when lightly steamed) lower cholesterol and act as an anti-inflammatory agent, it also has anti-cancer thiocyanates,
assisting in the detoxification of our bodies.
While in the old days people tended to cook cabbage for hours until it was a grey puddle of mush, we know that the key to great food is great preparation – and this doesn’t have to be hard. Here’s a fantastic recipe that can be prepared in under 15 minutes and is so easy you will find it difficult to believe how great it tastes.
Chinese Chicken Cabbage Salad
What you need:
500 g cabbage, thinly sliced
1 tbs virgin olive oil
1 tbs rice wine vinegar
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tbs minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbs chopped coriander
Cooked chicken breast, thinly sliced
What you do:
Are you ready? Here’s what you do: toss all the above together thoroughly. And serve. It’s as simple as that. Super easy, this recipe will not only make your taste buds happy it will also leave you feeling refreshed and revitalised.
And finally, a warm thank you to Swedish author Jenny Åkervall. We were very pleased to host the book launch for her new novel På ditt samvete. The showroom was filled with so many wonderful visitors who all came together to celebrate Jenny’s talent and achievements. This book has people talking, so make sure to pick up a copy.
