One of my favorite Scandinavian brands is Samsøe & Samsøe! The Danish brand is all about clean design. Working in both men’s and women’s fashion, they take current styles and work them into their idiosyncratic aesthetic. After working for Levi’s and living in Paris, the cool Mia started working for Samsøe & Samsøe in her hometown of Copenhagen. Here she is in charge of the women’s department. Mia was in Amsterdam for a short city trip and I had the chance to have a chat with her and shoot some pictures.
