MY FAVORITE SHOPPING SPOTS - COPENHAGEN

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

Copenhagen is absolutely one of the most fashionable cities in Europe! It is also home to several of my favorite fashion designers like Henrik Vibskov, Christian Westphal, Stine Goya, Peter Jensen and a lot more. Vintage shopping is also quite popular in Copenhagen. Just make sure you are loaded when you visit the breathtakingly beautiful stores here because nothing in Copenhagen is cheap. 


COS

I discovered COS when I was strolling around one of the malls in Antwerp. Since it is based in Copenhagen I thought it would be cheaper to shop there. But it turns out the pricing is just the same. 


Illum

Illum was my point of reference when I was roaming the streets of downtown Copenhagen. Believe me you won't get lost with Illum's beautiful lighting display. Illum carries a wide array of Scandinavian designers as well as more mainstream European and American labels. I would have liked the store better if they have a section showcasing Danish designers.


Nag

Nag is famous for stocking obscure underground European labels. Unfortunately, when I visited their store last year they didn't have too much stuff other than those Canada Goose down-filled jackets. According to the SA, they usually have more variety during summertime. 


Paristexas

My favorite store in Copenhagen is no other than Paristexas. It carries all of my favorite designers like Rick Owens, Damir Doma, Alexander Wang, Boris Bidjan Saberi, Mihara Yasuhiro and Julius. The staff is very knowledgeable about the labels their carry so ask away if you have any questions. 


Henrik Vibskov Flagship

I am a huge fan of Henrik Vibskov so it was quite a treat to visit his lifesyle boutique in Copenhagen. Aside from his own line, the store carries other labels like CDG, Bless, Willhelm and Pendleton. I totally love the ambiance of this store. You should totally check it out if you are in Copenhagen.


Wood Wood Flagship

If you are looking for the best in streetwear in Copenhagen then Wood Wood is the store for you. Aside from Wood Wood's own line, it also carries several streetwear favorites like Jeremy Scott, Head Porter, Bernard Willhelm and the like.
