About Swensk, Australia Pty Ltd
Although fashion comes and goes, the international brands stocked in our store share the common factor of enduring sophistication. Some people would call it minimalism but for us it is common sense, highlighting the wearer's achievements rather than the brands. For Swensk slow fashion means that our clothes are timeless, both when it comes to quality but more so when it comes to design. Interesting people never go out of fashion.
