It is quite a different feel at Designer Zoo where you get to see designers creating in their workshops before you browse and buy. Another hip addition to shopping in Copenhagen is Normann in Østerbro, just north of Copenhagen’s centre, whose cavernous store stocks its own award-winning brand of off-beat homewares, furniture and Danish-designed fashion.

Fashion shopping
Though they wear their style understatedly, people in Copenhagen are said to be more fashionable than anywhere else in Scandinavia. Think layering and clothes that are effortlessly chic as well as bike-riding friendly. To pick up a few pieces, head to the fashion district in Indre By (inner-city Copenhagen) and pop into Day Birger Mikkelsen, a leading Danish brand with elegant, sexy, designs. The classic women’s fashions at Designers Remix is just as smart – and pricey. A firm men’s favourite is Mads Nørgaard – very Danish, smart, timeless gear (now also for women and kids).

Add just the tiniest accessory by jeweller Georg Jensen and you will be set to take on the best design in Scandinavia – in the best of Danish style.
