GDRN is wearing:

  • Dress by Hildur Yeoman
  • Shoes by Dr. Martens. They’re my favourite.
  • I’m not quite sure where this sweater is from.
  • Vintage bag from Spúútnik

style q&a

Describe your style in 5 words: Comfortable. Turtlenecks. Flashy but stripped down.

Favourite stores in Reykjavík: I often go to Yeoman, Spúútnik, GK Reykjavík, and Húrra Reykjavík. Those are my go-to shops.

Favourite piece: Quite recently, I bought these shoes that have LED lights in them. I’m going to use them at Airwaves. I felt like a five-year-old when I found them, I was so happy. They are really bright and can be static or blink—I’m kind of afraid I’m going to give someone a seizure.

Something I would never wear: There are probably a lot of things I would never wear, but you can never say never. Maybe I’d say I’d never wear this now but then I’ll buy it two years later. But in 2007 or 2010, I had this Adidas sweater, yoga pants, and Kawasaki shoes. It was a horrible combo. I would never pair those together again!

Lusting after: If I want to buy something, it’s always just something I find at that moment. I don’t go into shops to find something because I know that I will always find something I like and will want to buy it and it will probably cost too much. That said, I really want to get a cool, vegan fur jacket for the winter. A big one in white or light brown.
