City Guide: Copenhagen – Where to Shop

Copenhagenshop

This is the last Copenhagen Guide post (for now) about all the shopping hotspots in Copenhagen. You can find my favorite restaurants here and my favorite places here! Hit the comment box, if you have any questions regarding a visit to Copenhagen! My blog is highly biased to the inner-city, because I live there myself. But there are some amazing shops in Vesterbro and Nørrebro too!

Copenhagen is a great city for shopping, however your wallet isn’t gonna like it! For Italian high street brands such as Zara, I recommend you to skip this in Copenhagen: the Danish Kroner to Euro ratio is not in your advantage, therefor most high street brands are more expensive in kroner than in euro (sad face). However, there are great Scandinavian brands which are hard to find in the rest of Europe and of course there is the notorious “Danish Design”!

Wood Wood, Grønnegade 1, 1107 København K, website

Wood Wood used to be more of a street wear shop, but the last couple of seasons they have shifted more to a high-end concept store. They sell great brands such as Kenzo, Commes des Garcons and ofcourse their own brand.

Storm, Store Regnegade 1, 1110 København K, website

Copenhagen’s concept store, they sell a lot of crazy expensive goodies such as Celine, Balmain and Givenchy. My favorite is their beauty department where they among others sel Diptyque. Definitely a must visit when you like shops such as Colette in Paris.

Christian Louboutin, Grønnegade 6, 1107 København K

Do I need to explain more? Cute little shop, filled with shoes to die for…

Birger Christensen, Østergade 38, 1100 København K, website

At Birger Christensen you will find traditional high end brands such as Celine, Givenchy, and Maison Martin Margiela! To be honest, this is a bit more of a “window-shopping” kind of boutique for me, but they sure sell pretty stuff!

Marc Jacobs, Christian den IX Gade 3-5, Denmark 1111 København K

I love my Marc Jacobs iPhone holder and you can find it in their store!

Acne Studios, Pilestræde 40, website

Who doesn’t loves Scandinavian design? At Acne’s Studios you can find all their mighty fine shoes and jackets (my favorite), while getting impressed by the shops interior.

Holly Golightly Clothing, Moentergade 5, 1116 København K, website
Holly Golightly Shoes & Accessories, St. Regnegade 2, 1110 København K

At Holly Golightly you van find brands such as Balanciaga, Proenza Schouler and Rick Owen. The above shops are all in walking distance from each other, so great to combine (if your wallet is big enough at least).

Pedde & Stoffer, Klosterstræde 15, 1157 København K, website

At Pedde & Stoffer you can find more of the young high-end brands, such as Isabel Marant, Opening Ceremony, and T by Alexander Wang.

B56, Bredgade 56, 1260 København K, website

B56 is cofounded by Stephanie Gundelach, one of the girls behind Denmark’s biggest fashion blog anywho.dk. She and her mom own the place and they have a great sense of trends. You can find heaps of Danish brands such as Stine Goya and Wackerhaus.

Norse Projects, Pilestræde 41, 1112 København K, website

Norse Projects is known for their minimalistic design, great basics made from good quality. In their shop they also sell other brands such as A.P.C. and Woolrich. Great shop to show the boyfriend.

Le Fix, Kronprinsensgade 9B, 1114 København K, website

Le Fix has a great selection of men streetwear which has a selection somewhere between minimalistic Scandinavian design and Britisch hooligans. The guys working there are really helpful (which is actually quite a refreshing attitude, for Copenhagen’s standards). They sell their own brand and also brand such as Barbour and Stone Island. Definitely go visit, even as girl, because they also have some great accessories. And hey, who said we can’t wear a mens sweater?!

S for Sneakers, Pilestræde 52, 1112 København K, website

Running is HOT in Copenhagen, it seems like everybody is doing it. Which results that there are some great running gear shops. S for Sneakers is something in between the traditional (boring) running shop and quickstrike sneaker shop. They have an amazing assortment of running clothing from brands such as Nike and Puma: Jordan’s, those extra colorful pants or a N.B.A. jersey is what you can find here.

Naked, Pilestræde 46, 1112 København K, website

Line & Jo is my favorite Danish jewelry brand. Their style is “tough”, but always refined with a feminine touch.

Jane Køning’s jewelry are minimalistic and romantic at the same time. Their Love tag is their most known item.

Maria Black, Silkegade 13, 1113 Copenhagen K, website

Maria Black jewelry always has a sort of outer space feeling, a lot of oxidized goods with alienated forms.

Hay, Østergade 61, (2nd-3rd floor), 1100 København K, website

Hay is my favorite Danish interior brand. It is something in between Ikea (affordable) and Danish design (only affordable when you’ve won the lottery): all of their products have the minimalistic signature and always in happy colors.

Illums Bolighus, Amagertorv 10 1160 København, website

If you won that lottery Illums Bolighus will the place the splurge your money. This 3 floor interior department store literally sells EVERYTHING you van wish for. On the ground level, they sell a lot of cute interior items where on the top levels you can find their furniture collection. Even if you didn’t win the lottery, it is a great shop to wander around and absorb Danish design.

I hope you enjoyed my posts about Copenhagen and feel welcome to contact me if you have any other questions!

Happy (Belated) Birthday to Me

532077_10151373750371447_399681206_n

Hello blogosphere!

It has been a bit quiet here, but I have had a crazy couple of weeks! I had my final exam for my Danish education this week and last Thursday was my 26th birthday. It might be the first year that I thought “hmm, I’m getting old..” I had a great day though! My sister and brother from another mother came to visit me in Copenhagen and we spend the day in Tivoli (amusement park). We had the best weather and we literally took a nap in the afternoon sun. We finished our night with a 12 course dinner and some fantastic wine, I will post some of the food pictures later this week.

I love to celebrate my birthday, because I love presents 😎 These are all the wonderful gifts I received so far. My mom gave me the cutest birthday outfit from Zara and my dad gave me a Canon pancake lens (review is on its way) and some Mac brushes (haha, can you imagine this 60+ dad in a Mac store, totally lost in eyeshadow and blush). On days like this, I really miss hanging out with my parents. Obviously, I also had a (mini) period of being a rebel when I was younger. But these days I really enjoy being in their company, shopping with my mom or driving somewhere with my dad. So thanks lovely parents for being awesome!

My sister gifted me a new hairdryer, now there’s really no excuse to get some more volume in my hair. While I love make-up, I normally think my hair is just a burden. So for this summer, I’m really planning to (at least) try to blow dry my hair a bit more into shape!

The Nike short and Mac blush (from the in extra dimension collection) where little gifts to myself 😎

My sister and brother-from-another-mother also gave me this mug from Starbucks, so I will never forget where I came from 😉

Isn’t it a beauty? It is a blush and highlighter in one, with a consistency between liquid and powder. Normally I don’t really like glitter on my face and my every-day make-up is as matte as possible, but I definitely like this product on a tanned skin!

IMG_4231

These were the brushes my dad picked out for me, my goal is to own all Mac brush (okay not all, but most) out there.

IMG_4239

And last, but certainly not least, the boyfriend surprised me with some nice sneakers! These fly-knits are extremely comfortable, but so pretty that I actually don’t even want to use them to run in! They will match great with some summer skirts and dresses or even a boyfriend jeans.

With love,

Sample Sale Season

IMG_0882

My favorite time of the year is peeking around the corner! And I don’t mean Spring, because we all know that one is not around at all.. I’m talking about sample sale season 😀 I’m heading over to the Patta sale in Amsterdam upcoming weekend, but there’s definitely a lot going on in Copenhagen too.

Outfit of the Day

Image (1)
Hat – H&M // Necklace – Zara // Dress – Topshop // Jacket – Zara // Shoes – Jeffrey Campbell

Fashion Week is over so I thought it would be appropriate to put an outfit of the day picture. I don’t really do this too often, for starters i live by my sneakers+jeans uniform and in addition I still think it’s a bit awkward to just stand there in the freezcold without a coat, put on a blogger post and force somebody to make pictures of you..

I haven’t been as active this fashion week compared to last season, I’ve only visited 2 shows and an after party. But the best part about it (haha obviously besides the clothing, make-up and pretty girls) is definitely the open bars 😉 I’m looking forward to the next fashion week here, when it’s summer and you actually see more of the street style outfits than a lot of people in jackets and fur!

Note to myself: use your DSLR instead of your iPhone!!!

With love,
-Janet

I finally have pretty much all my shoes in Copenhagen! It took them a while to be moved.. When I just moved here, I bought one Billy at Ikea, but it was already too cramp to begin with. Last weekend I bought two more and now the collection is complete. I get so excited and relaxed at the same time when looking at my shoes 😎
