Technically, I'm an eighth danish. [My grandad's mum is danish] But i spend most of my holidays there so that must count for something right?
Well, I'd love to be because every time i visit Denmark [in particular Copenhagen], the cities are literally packed with well dressed ladies, all clad in high end fashion. I think with all of the hype based around Paris/Milan/London/New York, other style meccas go unnoticed, and Denmark would definitely qualify.

So, you can imagine my excitement i came across danish brand ELUISE. Not just because its a danish brand, but also because it's got that simple, yet baggy style that i dearly love. According to the S/S 08 text the line is:
"it's inspired by travel, movement and time. the silhouettes and drapings are influenced by designer louise stubkjear's ability to work in a simple way with the natural shapes of the material combined with a classical expression"
And even though i can't really see the link between time, it is clear that the draping silhouettes of the white jumpsuit, and the playful beach romper are definitely reminiscent of the 1980's [and earlier's] jetsetters.
When i take on of my 40 yearly trips to denmark, i will try to visit the store and post some pictures up. [i MAY be going to the end of April, but these trips can be very unpredictable!]
Have a good evening,
