It’s been a while now since I’ve fallen in love with the Danish style ethos which clashes with my personal style. It crept in with a few items from Ikea and now it’s infiltrated my accessories. I blame Skagen and their impossibly slim watches with a beautiful story and heritage. Easily explained away by my love for watches. THEN I attended the launch for their newly released bags and jewelry.
Transcending seasons, the black, stone, grey and sand leathers are sleek, simple and timeless. The brand draws it’s inspiration for it’s namesake town and the colours, textures and lifestyle entrenched in it’s surroundings. Their biggest customers are those return to the quality and consistency you can seldom rely on in a trend driven environment. For me it’s the dulcid hues and buttery soft texture that melts my steely resolve not to shop, as soon as I spot them. Exclusive to David Jones, you may even find yourself pacing suspiciously past them on your lunch break. I opted for the less creepy but equally strange enduring embrace when I spotted the Skagen Anja tote weave.
Maggie from La Petite Mademoiselle was more of a Skagen Mikkeline satchel girl and champagne girl on the night but then who wouldn’t be? The launch on the seventh floor of the Elizabeth street David Jones was beautiful. We got a lovely taste of what Skagen was all about, at the ‘hygge‘ complete with little handmade Froebel stars for our Christmas tree (how to here).
Perhaps if I buy hubs (hater of wearing watches) a Skagen which is functional without felling cumbersome, my multiple bag purchases will be less noticeable. That’s how fashion maths works right? On the other hand Christmas is coming up and I’ve been very good. Maybe I can give Santa a little hand because I’m sure he’s very busy.
