Quality over quantity: Fashion Manifest 04.03.2014, 0 Comments
How would you describe your style?
My style is classic, but is also influenced by Scandinavian minimalism and the season's trends. As a blogger, I definitely need to keep up to date with the trends, but at the same time pick and choose carefully, so my style remains my own and not just a reflection of "what's in". This is easier said than done, but I'm definitely getting better at it!
Where do you like to shop the High Street?
London is, without a doubt, my favourite city, but I also think Copenhagen is pretty good. I live right next to the shopping street, Strøget, so I often check out the high-street stores like H&M, Gina Tricot and Zara. The Danish high-street brands, for example Just Female, are also favourites. Otherwise, I do a lot of shopping online, including at ASOS.
Who is your favourite designer?
Maybe it's a little corny, but I love Isabel Marant. I am totally hooked on her simple everyday style, which always includes a few feminine details. I think there's something really powerful about her as a woman, which always shines through in her collections. She sets the benchmark for fashion, and is therefore someone to take notice of.
Who is your favourite Danish designer?
In my opinion, we have many talented Danish designers, among them Malene Birger. However, I think MUNTHE is very strong at the moment. The collection can be worn both everyday and for dressing up, which, for me, is really important. I am so excited to see how Naja Munthe develops the brand in the future.
What is the most important item in your wardrobe?
I have so great items in my wardrobe, which I am really grateful for! As a blogger, there are always so many new additions to my wardrobe, which means I am always getting rid of old things (otherwise I'd simply drown in clothes, shoes and bags). There are, however, a few things that I'll never get rid of, including my Balenciaga bag.
What do you think about accessories?
For me, accessories are the most important part of my wardrobe, as they complete every outfit. They can make a cheap outfit look expensive, or, on the other hand, an expensive outfit look cheap! I, therefore, always choose my accessories very carefully. My motto is: Quality over quantity.
Which trends do you love right now?
Spring is well under way in Europe now, but starting back in winter we began to see a lot of pastel colours used in, among other items, coats. This trend is clearly not over yet, and I therefore look forward to combining my basic wardrobe with items in baby blue and pink. And a little bit of colour on my skin, of course.
