Marie
”Top and pants both from pleats please by issey miyake and shoes from Zara.”

 

STYLE ”I would say my style is playful in a safe way. Winter is dark and layered; summer is full of surprises and sometimes very colourful. Through the years I’ve learned to be less spontaneous and more planned in my purchases. Quality over quantity.”

FAVOURITE DESIGNER ”Impossible to choose just one, but I would say Céline is my first choice. Then; Marni, Prada and Theory.”

SIGNATURE UNIFORM ”The jumpsuit! Easy, then I only have to decide on one piece instead of two. Saves time in the morning.”

 PARTY LOOK ”Something black. And red lips! I love the vibrant feeling you get from red lips.”

 

JEANS ”Nothing beats the feeling of finding a good pair of vintage Levi’s 501 that actually fit! Second runner up is a pair of APC jeans.”

SIGNATURE JEWELERY ”I have a special relationship with jewelery. I seldom add newcomers to my collection but then when I do, I use them forever. I’m always wearing my wedding ring from Cartier, a signature ring from Tom Wood and a birthstone necklace from Trine Tuxen. Also, I’m never fully dressed without my vintage Rolex.”

 

 

SHOES ”For hectic, everyday living I swear to my Adidas NMD and for office days my favourite shoes are my classic Chanel with a petite heel.”

MOST OUTRAGEOUS ”I do have a pretty crazy, patched pair of leather pants from Pucci. I still haven’t found an occasion to wear them, but I know it will come.

 

 

INSPIRATION ”I would say that traveling and meeting new people inspires me the most. My job includes traveling worldwide, and over the last couple of years that has been a big inspiration for me. I especially love to see what people wear to the airports – that says a lot. I tend to fall back on the Danish style as one of my favourites.”

STYLE ADVICE ”Feel comfortable in your clothes, it shows. And smile, happy women are the prettiest!”

CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF ”Black turtlenecks and white shirts, such classic items.”

MOST WORN ”My set from Issey Miyake, Pleates Please, is without doubt my most worn item.”

BEST BUY ”Some seasons ago I made a hugh sales scoop in NYC, the perfect black lace dress from Marc Jacobs’ runway collection! Even though it was on sale it still cost me one month of dinners for the family, but I’ve never regretted buying it.”

 

 

 

RECENT BUY ”A gorgeous pink wool blazer from Theory.”

NEXT BUY ”At the moment I’m pretty happy, but I know I always fall for autumn so let’s see in some weeks.”

NEVER EVER WEAR ”If there’s something I’ve learned over the years, it’s to never say never. But, cropped tops and belly tops are just not my thing.”

 

 

MISSING IN YOUR CLOSET ”I tend to feel I never have enough shoes…”

CLOSET TO RAID ”There are a handful of women on that list, but on top is Elin Kling. She has been my style icon for as long as I can remember.”

BEST BEAUTY ”I have fallen for products from La Mer. Never been more happy.”
