Ivan Grundahl / Niels Hemmingsens Gade 4 / 1153 Kobenhavn
It is quite rare to find a designer who can use a palette of dark muted colors such as black, grey and beige cleverly, and Ivan Grundhal is one of them. Playing with only black and grey, with careful layering of asymmetrical lines and uneven silhouettes, each of his collection is very avant garde with a mysterious aura. Although he already has 3 boutiques located in Denmark. Norway and New York, but his first shop was opened in Niels Hemmingsens Gade 1982, which surely you don’t wanna miss. What I especially like about his collection is each items are like an investment that you can keep on wear and layer, never out of season.

Storm / 1110 Copenhagen
This very hip boutique is the city’s high fashion centerpiece, with everything from Dior Homme, Dries van Noten, Visvim to Kitsuné, all carefully curated and displayed. No wonder it was once awarded as “best retail space” in 2008 by Dansk Fashion Award and has been the most sought address among stylists, photographers and other movers and shakers in the fashion industry. After scouting many hip boutiques in this city in search for a Han Kjøbenhavn handmade specs, I shouldn’t be surprised when I finally found them here. Inspired by 1950’s luxurious eyewear, this hard-to-find items come in sunglasses or normal frames. As a big fan of fresh, unique and extraordinary perfume, I was delighted to find a Byredo Palermo perfume which is perfect for warmer climate with its Bergamott and rose hints.
Despite the name, you will feel calm with Storm' fresh and clean interior
