Tabernacle Twins and Stine Goya

I discovered these lovely fashion brands in Copenhagen. I am very impressed with the fashion design talent in Copenhagen - I came across many gorgeous boutiques housing considered designs in relaxed silhouettes. Copenhagen overall is a young and trendy laid back city, and I am already planning another trip to unveil more hidden nooks and crannies and flea markets.

Tabernacle Twins - I love their multicoloured washed grounds in contrast to the heavy black graphics

Taken from their website: 
"TABERNACLE TWINS collections capture a surreal wonderland filled with fictive characters, quirky landscapes, fable creatures and random combinations. Exploring the unpredictable and wicked details of common life, TABERNACLE TWINS develop unconventional constellations in contemporary silhouettes.

Stine Goya is another brand I kept stumbling across. Stine Goya studied at CSM and launched her label in Copnhagen. Moody print onloose silhouettes
