shopping tip – a new store in town

Selected

SelectedFaces

Today Copenhagen gets a cool shop richer with Danish brand Selected opening a new flagship store at Frederiksberg Center. Do you know the brand? It is cool highstreet clothing and you might have noticed my fave leather jacket, which is from Selected. Definitely worth checking out. The store is divided in a men’s and a women’s area and the first three days after the opening there is 25% off all clothing. What’s not to like? Also, I have to have that suede jacket!

my london weekend

saatchiSohodrink

Last weekend I was in London for four whole days of relaxing, strolling around and enjoying the city. I lived in London for one year in 2009, so I always enjoy coming back as the city still feels a bit like home. This is not really a London guide, but simply a resume of my weekend. However, if you ever go there, you should definitely check out some of these places for shopping, dining and enjoying the UK capital.

  • Lunch at The Providores on Marylebone High Street. The street alone is worth a visit. Right in the middle of London, but a bit hidden a not so touristy with cool design shops, delicatessens and my all time favourite, Aesop.
    .
  • Drinks at Lounge Lovers. If you like a really well made cocktail and a quirky atmosphere, this place is the perfect choice. Of course there are many cool places to have drinks in London and last weekend I enjoyed some at Japanese Sake Nohana, which is also worth your Friday night.
    .
  • Dinner at The National Portrait Gallery restaurant. I know, it sounds a bit weird to recommend a museum restaurant. But this one is sort of a hidden treasure. You enter through the museum (which is kinda cool), have the most amazing view of the city, the food is simply fantastic and the prices are rather ok. Definitely my number one London-tip.
    .
  • Shopping in SOHO. Of course London is a mekka for fashion lovers like myself, and I always have to stop by the obvious candidates for high-end shopping like Bond Street, Duke Street and Liberty London. However SOHO has become a really nice place to shop over the last few years with a mix of street and up-and-coming designers.
    .
  • Museums to visit are definitely Tate Modern and Saatchi Gallery, if you, like me, enjoy modern art. Tate is always fun to stop by as you can walk there by the Thames and really feel the London vibe. However Saatchi is my favourite as it is smaller and always has amazingly curated exhibitions and the most fantastic venue.

Soulland

If you are in Copenhagen these days, there are some menswear bargains to be made. Some of my go-to brands like Soulland, Filippa K, Tommy Hilfiger and Mads Nørgaard are having their bi-annual stock and sample sale, and I would bet my right hand that there will be some goodies to be discovered. See you there? (Follow the links for information on the sales).

As I expected London is just fantastic. Today I had a delicious English lunch, walked around the city for what felt like 1000 miles and ended the day at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which currently displays the ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ exhibition. The picture above was a quick iPhone snap taken in the beautiful courtyard of the museum, which is furnished with tables by Eero Saarinen and chairs by Harry Bertoia; two of my favourite modern classic designers.

JACKET: Selected. SHIRT: W.A.C. PANTS: Won Hundred. SOCKS: Soulland. BOOTS: Balenciaga. SCARF: Samsøe Samsøe.

weekly wishlist

WeeklyWishBlue

This week there is a black and blue theme in my weekly wishlist; inspired by the leather backpack I designed in a collab with Daniel Silfen (obvious agenda pushing, I know). The bag is made out of soft leather and perfect for everyday use with side pockets and one zipped pocket in front of the back. I am so happy with the result. Do you guys like it? Besides that I am looking for a new leather jacket and fell for this one from H&M. Highstreeters really have stepped up their leather-jacket-game lately with great options from Zara, Weekday and Topman as well.

PANTS: Julien David.        JACKET: H&M.        KICKS: Reebok.        HAT: Larose Paris.        BAG: DanskMode x Daniel Silfen.
