The clean, crisp lines and high quality craftsmanship of Danish design brings a cool Scandi vibe to your life. From Denmark to Singapore, meet DANSK, a new, multi-brand, lifestyle boutique on River Valley Road, stocking a range of contemporary Nordic fashion, accessory and décor brands that we’ve fallen hard for.
There’s something about contemporary Nordic style that just feels right in tropical Singapore, but it’s not always easy to find products which capture that unique Scandinavian spirit. Danish entrepreneurs, Betina and Louise, have made it their mission to fill the supply gap. They’ve been hosting successful pop up events in Singapore for years and finally, they’ve launched their very own showroom! From home décor to accessories, fashion to bikes, DANSK’s simple, well-crafted pieces work so well in our equatorial environment.

Here are our favourites:
Ex-buyer for Danish fashion giant IC Group, Louise Werling Jasper relocated to Singapore from Copenhagen and immediately fell in love with Singapore’s rich, multicultural society. Jasper Living’s garments are very much designed with the modern woman in-mind, who still wants to stay chic in Singapore’s hot climate! Her boutique design company, Jasper Living, creates handmade jewellery and apparel inspired by her surrounds. Louise’s gorgeous pieces speak volumes of her admiration of Singapore’s vibrant neighbourhoods, from Chinatown to Little India, Kampong Glam to Korea town. Her elegant, handmade jewellery is as popular in Singapore as it is in Denmark. We’re also loving Louise’s Asian inspired apparel range in breathable, 100 percent cotton, Arabian Keffiyeh fabric. Each stunning limited edition piece is also available online.
Beautifully made, high quality kid’s clothing crafted from natural fibres can be hard to come by on this side of the world. Copenhagen Delights is a Hanoi based, Danish designed children’s clothing range, delightfully filling a gap in the Singapore apparel market. The charming brand offers both everyday wear and special party gear for your little ones. Dress tiny tots to fussy teens in Copenhagen Delight’s gorgeous designs of stunning silks, rich velvets and crisp, cool cottons.
If they’re good enough for Princess Mary of Denmark, then they’re good enough for us common folk, right? Danish cargo bike brand Nihola Bikes have been creating their ultra-light bikes in Copenhagen for the last 18 years. Easy to steer and simple to ride, Nihola cargo bikes are perfect for transporting children plus a week’s worth of groceries! Singapore’s smooth terrain, many bike tracks (not to mention crazy car prices!) make cycling a safe and affordable way to cart around your most precious cargo.
Psst… For the AW16 season DANSK will launch their very own line called DANSK kids.
