Søstrene Grene’s latest collection is about to drop and, as usual, it’s all gorgeous

True to their brand, the Danish lifestyle store Søstrene Grene’s upcoming drop embraces balance and simplicity.


Inspired by their philosophy of achieving harmony and meaning by slowing down the pace of life, Søstrene Grene’s newest collection is all about tactile textures, pared-back design and simple functionality, not to mention the label’s indigenous Scandinavian minimalism.

Well, if you’re trying to rein in your spending, it might be best to avoid the shop for the month of September as their newest collection drops, although once you have a look at all the new, adorably Danish designs below, it’ll be almost impossible.
