BOYY BAGS

BOYY BAGS

From top to bottom, left to right:  KARL 24 in Rose Dust, ROMEO in Toy, FRED in Sunrise and DEVON in Suede Sage.

BOYY is an international brand launched in 2006 by designers Jesse Dorsey and Wannasiri Kongman. You surely already saw this brand plenty of times, both on magazines and social media.. lots of amazing pics can be found mostly on Instagram! What gets me of all the BOYY bags is the well defined structure, the usage of different materials, such as the black suede lining that can be found in almost all their models, and also the statement frontal flap closure.

As the designer themselves say their philosophy “has always been that a women’s accessory should have a masculine feel, balancing out a woman’s femininity, sort of a yin-yang thing…” and that’s actually what makes them so cool and unique.

Lately I’ve been dreaming of adding one of them to my collection, its just so hard to choose among all the models and nuances offered!

MADS NØRGAAD ESSENTIALS

MADS NØRGAAD ESSENTIALS

Long sleeved basic striped t-shirts from Mads Nørgaard

Being a fan of Scandinavian brands led me to visit Mads Nørgaard boutique while in Copenhagen. Obviously couldn’t leave the shop empty handed. I went for two long sleeved t-shirts that immediately got my attention, the one on the left is not what I would usually choose but it’s so springy and made me think of lazy days out that I immediately tried it. The second one is basically a mix of the colors I love the most. They are perfect on their own or also paired with a denim jacket or plain black one!

BREAKFAST AT SONNY

BREAKFAST AT SONNY

Where I would love to be right now!! 

Sonny is a cozy and welcoming café right in the center of Copenhagen. I’ve seen a lot of people posting about going there, so I was pretty curios to try it out… went there on a snowy morning and sat down in one of their comfy bench with check huge cushions. Ordered what can be considered as a typical danish breakfast, that consist in soft-boiled egg, rye bread, butter and cheese.. delish! Also went for a matcha Granola with yoghurt, apple compote and Aronia! All of this with a cappuccino that is always present during my breakfasts.

In the pics you can also see an espresso cake and sweet roiboos tea; all recommended.

Flowers and candles are everywhere in the place, so there’s a constant and relaxing hygge athmosphere there. It made me sit there enjoying my time. I get it why it is so well considered and popular, it is surely a place I will definitely spend more time once I’ll be back!

Vintage Trench / Pants from Zara / polka dots top from Calzedonia / slingback from Chloé 

The sun’s finally out so I am enjoying it while it lasts having a coffee walk with my furry love. I am also so happy that it’s finally time to take out of the closets all of my beloved trench coats and spring shoes such as the slingback I am wearing. Winter has been way to long this year!

LUSIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

LUSIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

Located 40 kms north of Copenhagen (just about 45 minutes by train) in the city of Humlebaek, the Luisiana Museum of Modern Art is set in an amazing location that looks directly at the Øresund, the stretch of water that separates Denmark from Sweden. It’s a very peaceful place where everything’s connected: the buildings to the landscape and to the hundreds of art pieces.

Founded by Knud Jensen in 1958 owes it’s name, Louisiana, to the original owner Alexander Brun’s three wives. They were all called Louise. Don’t you think that’s a funny coincidence?

As I was making researches for what to visit while being in the danish capital, one of the things that everyone kept recommending was this place. I spent a whole afternoon there and I can say that it’s definitely one of those places that should be top of your list when you visit Copenhagen.

Louisiana has an extensive permanent collections that include the Giacometti Gallery, Asger Jorn’s work, Warhol pieces and the amazing installation Gleaming Lights of the Souls by Yayoi Kusama. This last installation is really an amazing experience that makes you get into an amazing world made of lights and shadows.

Until the 27th of May you can also admire an extensive collection made of160 pieces from Picasso’s original ceramics that represents a late, fortunate and highly imaginative part of his work. I was also lucky to see the The way I think collection by Georg Condo. An amazing mix of input from artists such as Velazquez, Manet and Picasso, together with elements of American Pop Art.

A must-see that you cannot miss!

A place I will gladly come back to, maybe in the summer time, to enjoy its amazing gardens even more.
