Nord7 Is the Elegant Comfort You Want in All of Your Clothes

Nord7 is one of those rare and special fashion brands that immediately captures hearts with a unique and universal design, ultimate comfort and wearability, and an approachable brand face. Inspired by the Nordic countryside and minimal Scandinavian design, founder Antonia Montero’s first collection under the Nord7 moniker, achieves all of that.

With a minimal palette of well chosen, bright colors, and a Spartan design set of thoughtfully structured lines and color blocks, the Line sweater collection brings clean elegance to comfort wear. The added benefit of purchasing handmade, durable pieces makes these timeless designs a staple piece in any wardrobe.
