    The most elegant show is always Jesper Hovring, dressmaker and the designer of my future wedding dress!  The yellow jumpsuit gave me chills when I watched her walk down the runway.

    The funnest show was easily David Andersen, completely unforgettable.  It wasn’t a fashion show it was a sci-fi movie!  Watch the show here.  The music was awesome as well.

    If you go to any Magasin in Denmark or Illum in Copenhagen, you must try on Day Birger et Mikkelsen.  Every item is very high quality and don’t let these pictures intimidate you, they have clothing for every day wear.

    There was something amazingly sexy about the movement of several of the Barbara I Gongini looks, recommend watching the show a quarter of the way in for these two dresses in particular.

    The most beautiful coat I’ve ever seen in my entire life was made by Bruuns Bazaar.  I would go to Illum to visit my coat and whisper sweet nothings to it…until some awful (or lucky) person bought it.  This year the AW14 did not disappoint.  The grey coat below looks plush!  I may have to visit it…

    Spotlight on Han Kjøbenhavn

    Today is the first day of Copenhagen Fashion week!  Here is the official schedule, and even though I’m not currently in Copenhagen I’m very excited.  Danish designers are some of my favorites, and it also helps that many haven’t been discovered yet so I can get some good deals.  I have been lucky enough to go to Malene Birger’s boutique in Copenhagen, as well as visit Jesper Høvring in Frederiksberg.

    But for this post I want to point out that I am not the only one to fall in love with Danish Design.  J.Crew has too!  They are currently carrying two of Han Kjøbenhavn’s sunglasses (here and here) for men at reasonable prices.  Unfortunately ladies, Han Kjøbenhavn designs menswear…but these sunglasses would make a great gift for that special guy in your life!  Next time I’m in Copenhagen I’m definitely going to grab a male friend (Danish men are the best dressed men on the planet!) and check this boutique out!
