Icelandic Designer Opens Store in Copenhagen

Icelandic fashion designer Gudbjörg Reykjalín opened a design and art store in a quiet side street in Copenhagen, Linnésgade 35, last month.

The store is called Mums Filibaba and carries clothing from up-and-coming designers, fun home appliances, accessories, artwork and photographs from a range of artists.

Reykjalín told Fréttabladid that she has received positive response from customers.

When asked about the name of the store, she explained that it is a Danish saying. “Danes use this word for things they find particularly good, ‘mums’ means in fact just yummy. We thought it was perfect for the store because it indicates that we only sell good things.”

Reykjalín has lived in Denmark since 1992 and graduated as a fashion designer from Haandarbejdets Fremmes Seminarium in Copenhagen in 2005. “I call it my hometown […] and I expect to stay in Denmark. I always like coming to Iceland, though, recharge the batteries and my designs are under significant influence from Icelandic nature.”

She designs clothing under the label Greykjalín.
