A little insight on me and my fellow Danes. Let's admit it. We love stripes. We loooove them!
My reason for bringing this up, is based on a little observation I did, in the first days of my arrival in Copenhagen. After being away from Denmark for some months, I decided to take a quick stroll down the main shopping street in Copenhagen wearing this stripey cotton Zara shirt. Besides it being waaay too hot to wear for the most awesome weather DK's had for years, I noticed that everyone (almost everyone...) was wearing stripes. You know, how when you notice something, you can't unnotice it? Yep, my head instantly started counting, until I just gave up. They were everywhere, including my outfit of course.
I don't know why we Danes have such a love towards stripes. Maybe because we're a country surrounded by water and have always been happy sea folk? Coco or no Coco, we've had our fair share of stripes in history as well! Being an aspiring print-student, I cannot ignore the most favourite and popular (not just to the Danes) print of all times - and let's be honest, it suits everyone in one way or another! And then again, who doesn't like a bit of sailor-action anyway?
P.S. Thanks to Spanish high-street, who obviously love stripes as well!
