Fancies is a Grapevine series where we highlight an individual with supreme style. Our latest subject is Logi Þorvaldsson, a film producer.
Logi Þorvaldsson is wearing:
- Everything is thrifted! Nothing new.
- Vest from Spúútnik
- Shirt is my Dad’s Christmas shirt
- Scarf is vintage Chanel
- Pants are from Samhjálp
- Shoes are Red Cross
- Jewellery from Viðja Jewellery
Describe your style in 5 words (or more!): 70s dude. Leather rockstar. Forever-evolving.
Favourite stores in Reykjavík: All the thrift shops. Hertex, Rauði krossinn, Spúútnik and Wasteland, but my all-time favourite is Samhjálp. That’s a hidden gem.
Favourite piece: This Viðja jewellery gold dragon necklace—it’s my favourite piece ever. It’s custom-made so there’s only one in the world and it’s by an Icelandic designer. I also recently bought these leather Versace pants in London, where I live, but when I came to Iceland this year, I thought I was only going to be here for a month so I left them behind. But now I’ve been there for six months and I’ve thought about them every day.
Something I would never wear: H&M. Fast fashion is horrible.
Lusting after: I’m craving something Dior. The dream would be a proper full-on Dior suit, but I’ve also been eyeing some sporty vintage 90s Dior sunglasses. I’ve been scouring only vintage sites.
Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
