Danish brand Ganni is set to open three souvenir pop-up stores following fashion weeks in Copenhagen, New York and London.
Each store will sell limited edition Ganni branded, traditional souvenirs, such as keyrings, posters and bottle openers, all of which are heavily influenced by everything Copenhagen. The pop-up stores will also sell exclusive hand-painted ceramics displaying iconic local imagery and a ready-to-wear collection, also inspired by the city.
“With the souvenir pop-up shop we’ve turned our love affair with Copenhagen into a literal manifestation in the shape of merchandise. A traditional, and let’s be honest, often ridiculed medium, but with the help of artist Ana Kraš we’ve given it an artistic bordering pastiche point of view of Copenhagen,” says Ditte Reffstrup, creative director at the brand.
The stores pay homage to the city and the endless inspiration it has provided the brand. Kraš shot some of Ditte and her husband Nicolaj’s favourite things – including bicycles and angels – to feature on some of the merchandise as well as in the latest collection.
The first pop-up opened in Copenhagen on January 31 and will remain until February 4. The store moves to New York from February 8-16, and in London on February 14 where it will take up residence at Selfridges.
