In October we spent a couple of days in the truly beautiful Danish capital Copenhagen. In a world of riding bikes, laid back lifestyle, and Scandinavian design, we wandered the streets to find inspiration in every direction we took.
Our first point of call was meeting our Danish friend Nina, who welcomed us with some traditional pastries and homemade bread - a perfect start to the day. Feeling full and ready to hit the streets, we visited the local ‘rent a bike’ shop to pick up our mode of transport for the two days, slowly blending in with the natives.
Within minutes of being in the city it was clear to see that Copenhagen was thriving with culture, beauty, and creativity. Every street we explored was full of life and character, and individual style. Throughout these days we browsed the amazing array of fashion and design shops that Copenhagen had to offer.
One shop that we really liked was the boutique Storm Fashion, which featured a range of great designer street-wear and a fantastic selection of coffee table books. Other favourites included Wood Wood’s flagship store, Acne Studios, the renowned Hay House, and the menswear store Han Kjøbenhavn, who is mostly known for their amazing quality glasses. In Han Kjøbenhavn we were instantly hit with the incredible scents of Le Labo fragrances, and met with friendly service. The store showcased artistic pictures and interiors, whilst presenting a great curation of cutting-edge fashion - definitely one to check out.
Throughout our first day we were told by many people to head to Torvehallerne; a food market with stall after stall selling beautiful wines, fresh juices, and varieties of world foods. Vibrant colours and amazing scents greeted us on our entrance to the lively market. It was the perfect place to hide away from the mid afternoon rain spell, as we dried off and sampled a delicious pizza from Gorms Pizzeria.
The Danish culture is one that we truly felt at home with. Their appreciation for design is like no other, and we can’t wait to explore it again soon.
