The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Let Your Hair Down in Copenhagen


3. What to Do


Skip the touristy big-box stores that line Strøget and head instead to bohemian boutiques like Brinja. Located in the burgeoning Islands Brygge quarter, the shop creates fanciful, mod-sixties-style one-off dresses. YiiP, Christina Julsgaard’s trendy dress shop set amid the stucco villas of the Jarmers Plads neighborhood, features prêt-à-porter collections that combine cool minimalism with graphic prints and bold colors. Cooler still is the Munthe plus Simonsen boutique, where all-noir knitwear, suede jackets, and flowing tops are accessorized by slashings of trimmed fur. It's a far-cry from Bohemia, perhaps, but a must-stop for any fan of Scandinavian fashion.
