Iceland: probably the highest style density in the world

I’m just back in Paris. I have to say how amazing is Iceland. Imagine a 190’000 souls city 200 km far for Arctic Circle where everybody is creatively dressed . I’ve never seen such a high style density elsewhere. Reykjavik is definitely a hotspot for inspiration. Sublime landscapes and lovely people. For the first time I didn’t meet any too-cool-for-school folks, 100% of the people were OK to be face hunted. Last Sunday, the national newspaper Frettabladid published this:

For those who are not fluent in Icelandic, there’s a traduction on reykjavik.com.

    Wow, does everyone in Iceland have access to fabulous vintage or does it just appear that way? Where do their clothes come from?

    They are all fearless! I wish Hollywood could be like that.

    I just went once in Blue Lagoon (huge hot lake) for a party… Otherwise I didn’t have lots of time for the countryside.

    You are a true visionary, and there is no place, as it seems, that you can not capture style, except maybe my city. Cleveland, OH is almost 99% devoid of fashion. I challenge you to come here and prove me wrong. :)
