Today only a short post about the fashion stops during our Blog’nhagen day. After we had breakfast at Maria’s place we headed over to Nyhavn, where we met “Brown Prince Jewelry“:
Brown Prince Jewelry is founded on the idea of combining the carving traditions and materials of Burundi with the finesse and design of Scandinavia to create a unique style of jewelry.
After hearing about their concept of design and the making of these necklaces, bracelets etc., we also went to a designer store in Copenhagen called “Baum und Pferdgarten“.
You probably know that we do not buy too many clothes ourselves, but this store was really really nice and their design concept for the new collection was presented to us by a really nice blonde girl in an oversized dress. I am quoting here, but I really loved the concept of their Autumn/Winter Collection 2012:
The starting point … is the subculture Mod which began in the late 50s moving into the early 60s. The collection is characterized by typical elements used by the Mods’ such as the Parka Coat, short jackets, slim suits, cropped trousers, A-line shapes, and of course the Italian scooter; represented in an iconicprint of an over accessorized Vespa scooter.”
When Toni and I went to London last year we also attended a 50s night at “Museum of London”, where we met Beatrice Behlen (author from our first issue) for the first time. She held a presentation about Fashion Styles in Soho in the 50s and told us all about these clothes and signature looks. If you are into this era, you should probably read “Absolute Beginners”. And if you want to dress like them: head over to “Baum und Pferdgarten“.
Well, there were a lot of fashion insights and great shops in Copenhagen. A little expensive perhaps :). But don’t you love the bracelets from Maria? Ashley with her cute striped shirt! And what I was wearing? The green men’s shirt you’ll spot in our new issue of sisterMAG. Paired with the simple black skirt with a little detail in the back from sisterMAG N°1 and last but not least a new bow-tie from a friend in Berlin who is thinking about selling them. What do you think? Would you buy one?
The earrings (yes, they are really large) are actually from H&M and are clearly influenced by Prada Collection Spring 2012 with their large earrings and 50s hair-do.
Many greetings, Thea
