Dansk Dreaming

Actually, anything Scandinavian.

My niece Sarah just returned from a holiday in Europe. Much time was spent in Denmark where her partner Peer lives (in Copenhagen). Last weekend, Sarah gave me a guided tour of her purchases and I was really impressed. Now, Sarah is in her twenties and I am 42 but the cuts of many of the pieces she bought (I think) would cross the generations. Sarah has excellent taste so all of her choices are age-appropriate, chic and very modern.

If you are new to Scandinavian designers, I suggest you educate yourself. Many stores will only post within the EU but New Zealand Post's YouShop service can forward parcels sent to the UK on to New Zealand. Here's a quick introduction to some of the best Scandi high street labels:

Soft feminine silhouettes with a modern edge.

A little bit rock and roll.

Blaise jeans

Baily boots

Mi Stretch dress

What all the cool girls wear.

Pistol Short Black Contrast

Cleo Wool Grey Melange

Sydney Twill Crepe Petrol Blue

Interesting plays on shape and form. Selected pieces available at TK Store in Auckland.

Quirky cool.



  1. So awesome!

    Funny you should put that top Mads Nørgaard skirt up... I looked at it every single time I went into the shop but for some reason I never tried it on. I've been thinking about it quite a bit.... Regret!!!

    1. Well, Peer has a credit card and access to a post office has he not?
