It’s about time that we give it up for the Norwegians. Specifically the folks in Bergen. They’ve truly mastered the art of looking fresh in vintage fashion. After 4 wonderful days spent in Oslo, I headed to Bergen, the second largest city in Norway and quite the hub of art and culture. Bergen’s old enchanting streets are alive with a fresh grove, charming cafes, galleries and an array of antique shops. The country truly blossomed after the Black Death wiped out more than half the population and Vikings were forced to set out on their raids. No sign of pillaging and death now with the country pouring $680 million into its new Opera House. Yay for Bergen! This wonderful economic boost allowed for a new wave of creative people, who make drop-crotch pant wearing cool, to inhabit the city. They’ve adapted a laid-back style that speaks to modern trends in an unfussy way that seems to say, “Yea, I woke up this way.” Surrounded by these stylish Norwegians and wonderful vintage shops, it was only a matter of time before I stumbled into one the same way I would into a bar offering a killer happy hour. Second Love was the spot and a pair of Stella McCartney pants, an oversized black turtleneck and a grey Marc Jacobs military jacket was my poison.
