Things I Love - Dagmar
Dagmar is one of the brands that I discovered through my new job. There is just something about their design philosophy and the quality of the clothing that has made me such a fan. Out of all of the amazing brands that I have gotten to work with, it really is Dagmar that I have fallen in love with.

As much as I love the clean and minimalistic design of Scandi-favourite Acne, I've always felt there was something missing from the fashion scene and I feel that Dagmar fills that void completely. Their concept of arty-chic mixed with quality designs give the fashion scene here in Scandinavia a nordic-bohemian vibe that I have really been missing. This kind of style is all over Iceland and has made them incredibly unique fashion-wise, but I have seen very little of this type of design in Denmark, Sweden & Norway.

I guess I feel that the Scandinavian minimalistic design side has been given so much attention all over the world but that disregards a huge portion of cultural capital here in this side of the world - artists and artisans that use wool, patterns and leather in a very scandinavian way.
Scandinavia is not all pole-thin platinum blondes in head-to-toe Acne. Really.
It's amazing how involved one get when you really believe in something! Happy to be spending my sunday sharing this with my lovely readers. I sometimes forget how lucky I am to have this little outlet to share all that inspires me. I will always love the merging of art & design.
