No trip to Copenhagen would be complete without a shopping trip to one of Acne’s three stores, Scandinavia’s most successful avant-garde fashion brand. The Pilestraede boutique is the label’s flagship housing its full men’s and women’s collections, while the Norrebro location is the archive store where you can pick up past season pieces at significantly reduced prices.
Don’t miss the ever-inspiring HAY House with its cutting-edge Danish and international furniture, interiors and homeware set in a magnificent art-nouveau building. The store sells typically minimalist furniture finished in quality materials and a pared-back colour palette, offset by colourful, print-heavy cushions and rugs, modern lighting and quirky stationery, making it impossible to leave without a buy.
