I already had the Danish brand Skagen on my radar, but when my mother (encouraged by me, I admit) bought herself one of their watches when she last visited me about two weeks ago, I knew it was going to be a matter of time until I got something for myself as well. I am now in the phase of choosing what, which is never an easy task for me when there are quite a few pieces I’m musing about, watches in particular, of course, but also jewellery (and even handbags – the Anja wool tote with leather trims is particularly appealing). Simplicity, craftsmanship and functionality are the qualities that stem from every piece. The streamlined, minimalist Scandinavian design meets style that stands the test of time, and that can be the very definition of modern elegance.
