Good wind

Always liked the expression wishing someone “good wind”. I guess that means having the wind with you… pushing you along and not against you making it harder to get anywhere. Well on this day we had good wind. Can you tell? Check it out.

Celebrating Design

by barund CPH

As we kick off Copenhagen Fashion Week SS13, there is only one thought that comes to our mind –

Celebrate good design – Come on – It´s time to celebrate!

When we walk around Fashion Week and check out everyone´s hard work, we really appreciate all the attention to detail that goes into creating all of those fabulous designs, products and brand experiences for the world to enjoy. We REALLY appreciate all the wonderful materials, leathers, silks, wool, cotton, fur…and all of the great styling, shows, graphics, stands.

So come on Copenhagen…let´s celebrate design this week, let´s make this city happening, oh and be sure to read your Dansk Daily.

Trash Couture

by barund CPH

“Couture is not only for the chosen ones, in a hidden world behind thick couture house walls. Couture is for all the women who are attracted by the beauty of creation and the dreams that flows within it”.

 – Ann Wiberg, Trash Couture.

To add to our list of must-haves…A Trash Couture gown by Ann Wiberg and Nanna Lowe.

Tried and tested by Kirsten Dunst, Penelope Cruz, Rachel Weiz & Vogue, Vogue, Vogue to name a few.

All dresses are handmade in Copenhagen, Denmark and created from scratch with original colouring of silks, recycled leftovers from the big couture houses and vintage embroideries.

The Ballroom was the first couture salon ever in Scandinavia to provide the Scandinavians with a couture experience normally only offered by the big couture houses in Paris.

In 2012, Trash-Couture opened its first flagship boutique on Bredgade 8, Copenhagen. An absolutely gorgeous experience!

It is a gift to be let into the Trash Couture universe. Go and see it or see more at Trash Couture.

Hot Hot for Spring

by barund CPH

During Copenhagen Fashion Week –  AW12, we couldn´t help but drool over some extremely cool glasses spotted on the Agents for Transit. So we had to ask – who made those shades…and thus we discovered Oliver´s Peoples – and after checking out the brand it all makes perfect sense.

The designs of this California based brand, has been a favorite of many a cool person that we think we have seen on several films. Do you know this feeling? You spot something amazing and you want to freeze the scene and find the link to the shop – well now we have found it. See for yourself – Oliver´s Peoples.

Yum – Eye Candy!

by barund CPH

Inspired by Rika! The Holland based designer/brand Rika keeps showing she is homo superior by evolving her buisness with inspiring projects. For example a super fine bed and breakfast hotel located over her shop that is lovely. Now we discover her magazine designed/identity created by NR2154. The font designed for it and the graphics are gorgeous! Did we mention it is gorgeous? Check it out NR2154 – eye candy! Beautiful work! Must get our hands on an issue!
