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

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!

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 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).

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

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.

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.
