Founded in 2006 by model Helena Christensen and her longtime friend Leif Sigersen, this Danish boutique presents beautifully arranged apparel, jewelry, flowers, and vintage curiosities in a serene, garden-like space. Metal watering cans, weathered iron chairs, potted plants, and rakes surround the entrance of the narrow shop, mimicking the languid, dated feel of the impeccably displayed merchandise within. Bouquets of flowers complement 1930s bucked brown heels, crocheted handbags and teddy bears, 1970s cologne bottles shaped like vintage cars, and silver candlesticks. Racks of apparel display 10 Danish designers (and one, Ritsuko Shirahama, from Japan), with pieces from the owners’ own Christensen and Sigersen line mixed in. The in-store collection is inspired by Scandinavian farmers, featuring simply cut denim, cotton dresses, and tunics in shades of white and cream. Best selling Danish designs include ruffled pastel button-downs from Baum und Pfedarten and feather-soft viscose tops by Iben Høj. Christensen and Sigersen create accessories by hand, favoring knotted leather baubles and wooden trinkets on thin leather straps. While the summer wares can be pretty but tame in their conservative cuts, the fall season brings a covetable collection of knits and coats, like belted olive trenches and draped white jackets by Copenhagen-based designer Eluise.Wedding Planner
