style q&a

Describe your style in 5 words:

Hrafnhildur: Comfy, simple and warm.

Karítas: Boyish, comfy, and cozy. I like hoodies, joggers and oversized jackets. When I shop, I’m more in the men’s section.

Favourite stores in Reykjavík:

Hrafnhildur: Spúútnik, Zara, and 66° North.

Karítas: All of those and Kolaportið on weekends. But we mostly shop abroad on layovers, at Urban Outfitters or Topshop maybe. Our fav

Favourite piece:

Hrafnhildur: My first layer from 66° North. I am always freezing and I can wear it underneath whatever and then be warm.

Karítas: My North Face parka. I live in it.

Least favourite trend: 

Karítas: When we met, at 16, we wore like mini leather jackets, tight dresses, ripped leggings, and too dark foundation. It was the high school skinka look.

Hrafnhildur: That was so terrible. I remember wearing leggings that were ripped in the front and the back, a really tight skirt and a lace tight top. Now I am like, oh my god, that’s the worst. And the thin black eyebrows were awful. But that’s how we met, how we bonded.

Lusting after:

Hrafnhildur: I want a new Barbour jacket. Mine is vintage.

Karítas: A lot of jackets from 66° North, North Face, Supreme, and also the new Yeezy 500s in black.
