Pernille Teisbæk is an undeniable star of social media, a model and fashion editor who made her name into a globally recognisable brand. Being Danish, she promotes Scandinavian designs and herself favours a simple style identified with Scandinavian aesthetics. Now the time came for Pernille to write a book on the very subject that brought her fame – dressing Scandinavian.
I was very curious about the book and when I finally got it, I read it in two afternoons. The lecture of “Dress Scandinavian” left me with a feeling of a slight disappointment, because in my opinion the subject was treated in too superficial manner. On many pages filled with a great number of good pictures there was very little content, I didn’t learn anything new. The book left me with a sense of an unfulfilled promise. True, living in Norway Scandinavian style and fashion is something that surrounds me every day, so it is no wonder I didn’t find it groundbreaking, but even despite this daily exposure I was hoping for some more practical tips and inspiration on how to do it better. All in all, the lecture was enjoyable, a light entertaining reading that perhaps is more valid for those who would like to master a basic understanding of the Scandinavian style.
