KOMA for angels and cowboys

KOMA: Yet another of my favorite stores in Oslo. The store was opened by former violinist Marte Krogh and is selling well established brands such as See by Chloe, Whyred and Replay as well as more up an coming brands and hand picked vintage items. Marte Krogh travels around the world to find the best vintage pieces. She has also does her own design. There are three KOMA stores, the one in Hegdehaugsveien 34 is certainly worth a visit interiorwise. Rough concrete walls and a nice display gives the store a really cool look.

reMade USA is upcycling old leather clothes and scrap into bags and purses. The company is founded by product designer Shannon South “out of the concern with creating yet another product to add to the gazillions already on this planet”. I admire her.

I found the 3rd district and Montmartre to the best places for nice independent stores. On Champs Elysee you have all the big chains and luxury stores of course, but everyone knows that…

These are my favorites:

5in1-1

Quoted from trehugger.com:

“A new fashion revolution is brewing in Williamsburg, fueled by a faltering economy, a desire to rein in the frenetic pace of senseless spending, and the spirit of reinvention. Brooklyn design collective/boutique 5 in 1 recently relaunched with a decidedly innovative twist: a weekend shopping experience with the designers themselves.”
