Day /DK








DAY Birger et Mikkelsen

"Founded in 1997, DAY Birger et Mikkelsen has grown to become one of Scandinavia's most successful fashion brands. Inspired by Asian tailoring and culture from over a decade spent in Asia, founder Keld Mikkelsen wanted to create a business focused on a design driven product with a craftsmanship revival—manifested in details such as embroidery and beading—and focusing on contemporary everyday glamour."












I really enjoy how their pieces are presented: the first set, very lovely—a lookbook that expresses feelings and relationships with the rustic outdoors and settings of objects / the second, very different and fashion driven, with more of a direct showcase approach of their collection and the details... I would love to know, when you look at both, which one do you prefer?

  2. Sarah,

    A little bit of Scandinavia! Yeah! (:

    I don't own one single DAY piece. But I really should, shouldn't I? I know that the big department store, NK, in Stockholm carry the line.

    Going into fall I am of course gravitating towards the more rustic looking collection. That long, gray sweather definitely has my name on it. And the hat too!

    Love to you,

    Mon

  4. I can't decide whether I prefer the lookbook set of images or the deatailed/showcase set...they are both beautiful!! The second set definitely sells me more on the actually clothes, and now I desperately want them all! But the first set of images is extremely evocative. Lovely post!
