Blogger Funda Christophersen – Minimalistic and Polished

Funda is the founder of the website By Funda, the Copenhagen based platform is a true inspiration! The stylish globetrotter is expecting her first baby, a boy, this winter (congratulations). We stepped into her minimal and relaxed wardrobe for a serious dose of style inspiration.

STYLE “Casual, comfortable and minimalistic.”

FAVOURITE DESIGNER “Céline, The Row, Loewe & J.W. Anderson.”

SIGNATURE UNIFORM “Before I was pregnant it was definitely jeans and a ribbed turtleneck. At the moment I’m stuck in loose tops, dresses and skirts, which I feel a bit too feminine in, but are fine for summertime.”

SIGNATURE PARTY LOOK “A long sleeve slim fitted top with a high waisted skirt and chunky pumps or boots.”

JEANS “Topshop mom jeans and Levi’s 501.”

 

BAG “I love Céline bags and prefer a larger model for everyday use. Loewe also makes some dreamy bags. I have a clutch that I love to wear when I go out.”

SIGNATURE JEWELRY “I always have a lot of gold jewelry on. Some of my favourite pieces are my Omega Seamaster watch, my Cartier Trinity ring & my Cartier Love bracelet.”

SHOES “I love all my Céline shoes, at the moment the most comfortable are my babouche slides! Also I love sandals from the Swedish brand ATP Atelier.”

TRAVEL LUGGAGE “It depends on where I’m going! I mostly plan every outfit, so I don’t have to bring too much that I won’t wear. I’d rather bring a few more shoes and bags.”

MOST OUTRAGEOUS THING “A white Céline top that I found on sale with wide sleeves and a pocket in signature Céline print.”

INSPIRATION “My main source of inspiration is from my many travels. Also I really get inspired by style icons from the 70s, such as Jane Birkin and Charlotte Rampling.”

CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF “Probably a cliché – but I can never have too many shoes.”

USED MOST “As I have been getting heavier during my pregnancy my babouche slides from Céline have been all I can wear these last couple of months! So even though they were a bit expensive to buy in L.A., they have been worth every penny!”

 

BEST BUY EVER “My Trinity ring from Cartier which represents me, my mom and my grandma.”

RECENT BUY “Ever since I found out I was expecting a baby boy; I have spent all my money on baby clothes.”

NEXT BUY “A new large bag maybe, where there is room for baby stuff! I need to wait a couple of months with buying clothes for myself.”

NEVER EVER WEAR “Mini shorts.”

 

MISSING IN YOUR CLOSET “At the moment it’s definitely pants as I can’t fit into any of the ones I have.”

CLOSET TO RAID “Natasha Goldenberg has the most incredible wardrobe with a lot of amazing pieces from Céline, Loewe, Vetements and Gucci!”

BEAUTY “Everything without perfume and parabens when it comes to skin care products, which can be a bit challenging to find sometimes.”

BEST BEAUTY BUY “I recently bought Eau Thermale from Avène, which is so refreshing to spray on your face and body during summertime!”

 

 

SCENT “Byredo Blanche.”

BEAUTY ADVICE “Remember to always remove makeup and clean your skin morning and evening! Add some facial oil, it makes your skin look renewed and fresh.”

READY IN 5 MINUTES “I think I would need at least forty-five minutes to get ready as fast as possible. But a comfortable outfit and neutral makeup is all I need.”

MUSIC “A few of my favourite tracks at the moment are: Tame Impala’s, Yes, I’m Chaging, Jonathan Wilson’s, Desert Raven, David Bowie’s, Life On Mars and The Last Shadow Puppets’ Dracula Teeth.”

BOOK “I actually don’t read that many books, but I love interior magazines and art and fashion coffee table books, which are great for inspiration.”

NIGHT LIFE “Before getting pregnant I loved to go out and dine with friends and drank a lot of champagne. We used to go to Pluto, Llama, Pastis, Beau Marché and Victor in Copenhagen.”

 

BEST CITY “I love L.A. and have visited the amazing city four times within the last two years. Besides that, I love France – especially St. Tropez and Paris.”

BEST STORE IN YOUR CITY “Storm in Copenhagen has been a favourite of mine for years! Besides that, I love Holly Golightly, Leah Maria & Illum’s new accessories department, which has brands like Céline, Loewe, Chloé and many more.”

BEST STORE “The Line on Melrose Place – I love everything about it.”

INTERIOR STYLE “A mix of Danish classics, travel finds and vintage.”

FAVOURITE ITEM “Aside from my Wegner chairs and Poul Kjærholm table I love all my green plants.”

INTERIOR ADVICE “Make your home personal! Use a mix of new, vintage and items found on vacation – that way you’ll have a lot of memories in your home.”

HOME REFRESHER “I add small items from my travels or fresh flowers and new plants.”

NEXT THREE BUYS “A Flos Snoopy lamp. A drawer for baby clothes and a lamp for my dining room table.”

DREAM PURCHASE “Hans J. Wegner. Flagline Chair.”
