style q&a with Helga Vala Helgadóttir

Describe your style in 5 words: 90s. Street. Retro. Sparkling. Classy.

Favourite stores in Reykjavík: Second-hand stories and Hildur Yeoman. You can always find something unique in vintage stores. My favourite is Spúútnik and Wasteland.

Favourite piece: This sweater I bought in London. It’s from a brand called KYE, it’s a Korean fashion brand. It’s green with a zipper and a gold turtleneck.

Something I would never wear: T-shirts and sweaters with logos on it that say like “Bitch” Yesterday I saw a guy that said, “Relax bitch,” and I was like, ok, that is something I would never wear.

Lusting after: Some white high heeled leather boots. I’ve been looking for it but I have to find the perfect ones. I don’t want Cowboy-style ones.
