Concept shop Kisan on Laugavegur is a true paradise for shoppers in desperate need of a last minute birthday gift or in search of some fashionable or nifty new items for the household. Founded by Þórunn Anspach and Olivier Bremond, Kisan is today an essential part of the downtown-shopping district. Over the years the couple has travelled all around the world and, discovered a wide range of quality products and high-street brands from top of the list manufacturers, which can be found in the shop. An almost overwhelming diversity of interesting stuff greets you from the first step inside. The aim is to have a little bit of everything and bring together unusual as well as luxury items that meet the owners’ demanding standards.
Inside you’ll find accessories, clothes, shoes, stuffed animals, interior decorations and various indulgence products such as hair and bath goods. A nice selection of photography books, CDs and well-made baby clothes make for perfect gifts as well as the funny lamps in the shape of dinosaurs or penguins. Now also in store are new bags and wallets from the noted Irish designer Orla Kiely and a colourful jewellery line by Nathalie Costes. If you haven’t discovered Kisan yet, the shop is worth a look. Whether you like it or not, you’re bound to discover something new and exciting you just need to get your hands on.
