Interview March 21 2011
Who are you and why did you decide to start a blog together?
Jenny: We’ve been close co-workers for years at a media intelligence company in Copenhagen and have always shared one big interest…..
Sebastian: Fashion and style! We’re always showing each other new purchases and sneak away during work hours at Fashion Week to attend any shows we can.
Jenny: And we finally took the plunge and decided to start a blog together! I’m 29 years old from Sweden but based in Copenhagen and I was the co-founder of the popular blog Copenhagen Street Style.
Sebastian: I’m sooo excited! This is the first time for me to blog… We don’t have the same style in fashion but this is what I think will make the blog very interesting. I’m 28 years old and live in Nørrebro Copenhagen, one of the most interesting places in Copenhagen.
Describe your style?
Jenny: Nostalgic, preppy, obsessed with Peter Pan-collars, the 60′s and classic Americana. For me comfort is everything. I live in men’s-style shoes and loose-fitting dresses. If I’d have to pick a few inspirations at the moment I’d say the Amish, the french singer France Gall and old frontier-movies. I wear western bow-ties to death and 75 % of my wardrobe consits of APC-clothing. We have very different styles but I love Sebastians moody dark and deconstructed pieces.
Sebastian: Black, black, black, denim and skinny… I like to spice it up with detailed pieces and a accessories. I love Jennys style – it always make me happy to see her.
What are your favorite designers?
Jenny: At the moment I’m totally obsessed with designers from New Zeeland and Australia such as Twentysevennames, Secret Squirrel, Lover and Ruby. Of course my long-time favorites are APC and the American brand Dear Creatures.
Sebastian: David Andersen. I like his details… And then I have a thing for Rick Owens.
Do you have any style-icons?
Jenny: I have a girl-crush on Zooey Deschanel and love her girly style. I also love Kirsten Dunst and the Lula-editor Leith Clark.
Sebastian: Audrey Hepburn :-) And James Dean, Karl Lagerfeld, Lenny Kravitz, David Beckham and Lady Gaga…
What is the staple color of your wardrobes?
Jenny: Hahaha….Sebastians is black without a doubt :-) Mine is dark blue.
Sebastian: Just as Jenny says… I try to get some colors into my wardrobe.
What is the one garment in your wardrobe that you couldn’t live without?
Jenny: I’d say it’s probably a green floral 50′s dress that I got some years ago at a flea-market in Brooklyn when I lived there. It’s so cute and has the sweetest bow-belt. Best thing….it was only 10 dollars.
Sebastian: Hmmm… I think it would be my blazers. I love my blazers, it’s always so easy to dress up.
Is there anything you would never wear?
Jenny: Well I’ll never say never but I think jeans are the most uncomfortable things created so I will probably steer clear of that.
Sebastian: I don’t think so… I like to try to wear everything. Dare me :-)
What is the one fashion-tip you live your life by?
Jenny: Always dress according to your personality!
Sebastian: Cool and casual.
Do you wear any accessories?
Jenny: Very seldom….I have lots but I always forget to put them on. I’m always in a hurry in the mornings.
Sebastian: I love accessories! When I go out I like to wear a lot of bracelets and sometimes necklaces. I always wear my watch and belts.
What do you like about each others styles?
Jenny: Sebastian is always immaculate and has an excellent eye for details. His tailored blazers and jackets are to die for and he can spot a designer piece from miles away!
Sebastian: I love Jennys courage to wear colors. She always looks fresh and posh. I love the girly french style!
What are your faveorite spots in Copenhagen? What shouldn’t people miss?
Jenny: My favorite café is Kalaset! It’s the perfect relaxed place with such a nice crowd. Raw42 on Pilestræde is another favorite! They make the best spinach and basil-juices in the world. My favorite art-spot is the V1-gallery in Kødbyen (meat-town) and apart from that Nørrebro is generally a really great and vibrant place! The street-parties in the summer are the best events of the year! You can’t find a more relaxed and laid-back place than Copenhagen in the summer.
Sebastian: I’ve been living here all my life and I just love Copenhagen. Especially in the summer… Oscars (close to the City Hall) and Pussy Galore’s (Sankt Hans Torv, Nørrebro) are awesome places to enjoy drinks in the sun. A lot of different people comes to these places which I love. I also like to walk around and just pop into places – I try to find the places that aren’t too crowded. People have to go to Jægersborggade in Nørrebro!! I don’t like Baresso for example.
Is there anything you dislike about Copenhagen?
Jenny: The sky-high rents…..but that’s about it really!
Sebastian: The price for a cup of coffee.
What kind of music do you like?
Jenny: I mostly listen to indie-rock and love The Strokes, Tired Pony, Broken Social Scene and Girl in a coma.
Sebastian: I like pop and dance. Anything that can make me happy and dance :-) I’m not that picky in music… At the moment I listen to a lot of Danish bands/artists, Xander (son of Anne Linnet), Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Camille Jones and Fallulah.
