Tuesday, April 1

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,
Molly xo.

Pretty much anything black appeals to me. One question though: in the first pic, is she wearing one scarf or two scarves? I love the way the black drapes around her neck like that. Awesome catch, Molly.

I love the Denmark style! I have certainly been missing out.

Thanks for laughing at my potentially harmful sense of humor! :-) links trade, perhaps?

The black dress is very nice, but I love the jumpsuit even more, so cute, the sleeves are great.

I love that kind of slouchy chic style too and those danish ladies sure as hell know how to dress. That brand looks really elegant, loving the little hats in the first two pics.
