Munthe entered the fashion world 20 years ago, but in 2014 Naja Munthe relaunched the brand, breathing new air to her designs that are known for their predilection to unique details. Munthe store is located in Store Regnegade, a hip street in the heart of Copenhagen, and features a great selection of the brand’s four yearly collections as well as accessories and interior design items. Inspired by Scandinavian minimalism as well as her travels around the world, the designer and creative director of Munthe Naja Munthe creates feminine, elegant, and hip garments that combine elegant simple lines with a touch of exotic and street style elements.
When Stig Pedersen opened his first store in Copenhagen back in 1969 he Couldn’t have imagined that approximately 50 years later, Stig P would be among the most notable stores in Scandinavia. Except for the original shop Petersen opened in Kronprinsensgade, there are now two more clothing shops located in the multicultural neighborhood of Nørrebro and in Copenhagen’s high-end district Frederiksberg.
Located in the picturesque city center of Copenhagen, Henrik Vibskov’s boutique is certainly one of the clothing stores fashionistas should visit. The eccentric Danish fashion designer has steered clear from the black and minimalist lines that characterize the Scandinavian design and added bright colors and geometric shapes to baggie trousers and dresses. His boutique at Krystalgade, one of the most scenic streets in Copenhagen, offers a great selection of his own designs as well as other brands’ accessories and beauty products.
Mads Nørgaard has said that his designs aim to make girls and boys look more sexy and tough. Combining classic lines but always with a modern touch, Nørgaard seems to have reached his goal as his garments last throughout the years and never cease to be considered fashionable. The successful Danish designer opened his store in 1986—the same year he launched his own brand—right next to his brother’s multi-brand shop. Nowadays, both stores are owned by the renowned designer and sell notable menswear and womenswear while often transforming the stores into cultural platforms hosting art performances, live concerts, exhibitions, and design collaborations. Some of the brands Mads Nørgaard has chosen to put in his store’s selection are Commes des Garçons, Saks Pots, Freya Dalsjö, and Stine Goya.
