It's not in our nature to spruik, but while we're on the topic of things to do-and-see in Copenhagen, we're going to list another 'must' on the tour guide.

It’s Glitz!

It’s Glitz!

Anyone who was in Melbourne recently for the Fashion Festival would or should have been aware of a neat little jewellery sideshow presented by the Glitzern girls. Glitzern is one of those must-go-to shopping destinations whenever you're in town because the store's stock of accessories is like a metaphor for the city. There you'll find an eclectic mix of Australian art jewellers, costume ranges and rare vintage pieces. The more you search, the more you find. And it was upon hearing of Glitzern's Earring Festival that we came across the over-the-top designs of Lia T.

Time’s Up

Time’s Up

Danish discovery #2: Time’s Up, the coolest vintage store in Copenhagen. It took a couple of attempts to find this shop. There are so many side streets and back streets connecting the city so it’s easy to get lost, especially when you’re terrible at taking directions and don’t know the language. Guilty of both. For fashion curators this store is a dream. First spotted: Lanvin drop earrings in original packaging. Gasp! A pair of Calvin Klein two-tone snakeskin pumps. Next: a 1960s Burberry trench, Celine shoulder bag, Charles Jourdan satin pumps with studded heel. It’s got everything from Deco to New Look, space age to 90s excess. Amazing!

Say Hello To Susanne

Say Hello To Susanne

Another discovery from the city of Copenhagen, one relatively new to the Danish fashion scene. Having spent a morning on Silkegade, one of the many side streets slightly off the city's central shopping strip that are home to the more edgy and innovative fashions, Susanne Guldager's summer collection, Esoteric Dreams, was spotted on the racks of Nag, a niche boutique specialising in exclusive and upcoming designers.

Can Karen Get Any Cooler?

Can Karen Get Any Cooler?

I have just come back from a lovely little sojourn in New Zealand. The bulk of our time was spent saturated in beautiful scenery on the south island but I was desperate to head to the north and check out The Department Store for a bit of shopping.
