    The PO.P Collection “Prints”, is our second collection for Spring/Summer 2017, and its fun motifs and bright colors are guaranteed to make it fly off the shelves. We spoke to Anna-Karin Malmsten, our print designer at PO.P, who explained how the Prints Collection was created. “The work of gathering inspiration for the collection began in mid-February 2016. But it was only after our inspirational trip to London in early March that the work of designing the actual prints took off,” explains Anna-Karin.
