It was last year around this time that I got a chance to attend the Cool Nordic event in downtown Toronto. An event held by all the Nordic countries to bring forward the best of the best from Scandinavian countries. One of the most things I enjoyed about my experience was learning about how all of these countries follow the “less is more” way of thinking. Architecture, design and fashion all seem to follow the same thought process but they are so intriguing. Since that time, I’ve been randomly Google searching, Pinteresting and reading up on the Scandinavian countries and all I have to say is, there’s more to them than Volvo, H&M and Ikea and…. I REALLY WANT TO GO THERE!!! Badly!! Here is a little taste of Scandinavia…..
Skagen the Danish contemporary accessories company has been around for 25 years, designing simple, clean and accessible watches, bags and jewellery. I’m a big fan of watches and when I saw the Skagen watches at the Cool Nordic Workshop, I loved their simple designs. Nothing is better than a classic timepiece with great workmanship. I also got a chance to get a sneak preview of Skagen’s brand new handbag and jewellery lines. The bags are great, from everyday to going out.
