Story of a Band – Kinsfolk

They are young, fun and oh SO stylish. Guys, meet Peter and Dominik, who form Kinsfolk  – a Slovak indie duo based in Denmark. And guess what? I got to hang out with them in Odense the whole afternoon which we spent by taking some shots, as their new single just came out, and chatting about everything –  music, life, and  Denmark. They told me so much interesting stuff that I decided to bring all of that to you – and for the first time in both English and Slovak. Let me know what you think! X

  1. How was Kinsfolk formed and why “Kinsfolk? “

D: Kinsfolk actually started as a side project. As the cousins, we were growing up together and have been playing together since 2008 under several band-names, often with some other people. Our last band was called Parting Mouth and at the time when Kinsfolk was formed it was still active – we released a record, played shows and so on. When the new band was formed, we just wanted to try something different and be just the two of us. So we recorded ”Adelaide” and it felt natural to automatically come up with the new name for the band. We have considered a number of names but we liked ‘Kinsfolk’ the most. We are family after all and this title tells it to people too, you know? But I guess we pretty much thought it sounded cool as a band name as well.

Faux Fur for Cold Summer Days

I know it’s June, so.. a coat? What the hell? Well, here in Denmark, the weather is every day’s surprise. Last weeks were so warm that I felt I’m on my seaside holidays somewhere in the south of Europe. Well, well. This week has been cloudy, rainy and evenings had been kind of cold. Or maybe I still just didn’t get used to this Danish climate. At least, it was a great opportunity to take out my faux fur coat out of the wardrobe, and cuddle it up!

Florals for Summer? Groundbreaking.

These summer days in Denmark are warm, lazy and beautiful. What is better than taking a walk under the sun and being carefree for a second, shut down the busy world around you? Botanical Garden in Odense is such place, a place where you should go if you want to slow down. At the moment, all its flowers are blooming and it’s such a little hidden paradise. That’s why me and my friend Lisa decided to do a little photo shoot there!

Velvet Skirt x Industrial Vibes

I always loved industrial areas of the city. To me, they have this kind of different, cool vibes. Odense, the city where I live in Denmark at the moment, is more of a fairy tale than industrial and underground. Despite of that, there are a few spots with this kind of vibes I’m talking about, and I decided to capture them on blog. On this occasion and also because summer finally came to town and to this cold country (what, believe me, is a reason to celebrate)  I finally took my velvet skirt out for a walk!

The Future of Fashion at Copenhagen Sustainable Fashion Summit 2016

Fascinating, arty and influential. That’s what fashion is to me. I love fashion. I love the process of creating clothes, the art and ideas of minds behind it. As Eva Kruse, the founder of the Sustainable Fashion Summit said: It makes us love, desire, excite, reject and change. Over and over again.” It’s with us every day and forms a huge, inseparable part of our every day lives. Daily, we wear clothes. They have impact not only on us, how we feel in them or what statement we make, but also on our planet. This impact defines the future of fashion.

That’s why sustainability and fashion are two words which must go together. It’s also the reason why they were discussed earlier this month at the world’s largest event on ethics in this industry in Copenhagen. When I heard of it, I knew I can’t miss it.

Must See in Beijing: Lama Temple

Beijing is a city packed with things to see. Some might be a bit overwhelmed by the size of it, the noise and its vibe. In the „Must see in Beijing“ blog posts, I will introduce you places I personally think one shouldn’t miss on a visit to China’s crazy capital. Lama Temple is with no doubt one of them, and our first stop.

Lama Temple, also known as The Yonghe Temple (Palace of Peace and Harmony), is the most renowned Tibetan buddhist temple located outside of Tibet. It was converted to lamasery in 1744 after it served as a residence to Emperor Yong Zheng. Nowadays, it is home to Mongolian and Tibetan monks and an active place of worship where people come from afar. Beijingers also come here to pray – for luck and happiness, occasions such as weddings and births but also for businesses and even exams.

Mario Testino’s No Limits

It‘s morning on 11th May and I‘m walking through Copenhagen’s busiest shopping street Strøget, heading to the venue of the day, full of excitement. Morning just like any other, only Denmark was sunnier and warmer than ever.

I’m arriving at the cozy art gallery in the heart of Copenhagen. The fact, that there is something happening is obvious, when a yard looking like it was taken out of some Italian film, gets filled with journalists and bloggers from all over the country and abroad.

Sipping my obligatory morning drink – yes, coffee, I am about to explode from anticipation. What could be just an ordinary routine to others, who are working in fashion for a while, is the biggest thing ever to me.

Days like this #1 – Sunny Odense and Studying

I feel like these days are kind of chilled. Not like I’m not busy or anything like that (the opposite, help help!), but since the sun came to Odense, the city where I live and study in Denmark, its vibe has changed. Anyways, every now and then I will do posts called “days like this” where I will share my daily life, new places I discovered in town and thoughts I have in mind. 

To give you a picture – Odense is a pretty small town (third largest in Denmark though) and a home to Hans Christian Andersen, the world’s famous author of children’s fairytales (The Ugly Duckling, The Snow Queen or The Girl with the Matches, to name a few). It is a cozy town where life goes slowly. At least this is how I feel after I got back here from China. It is also biking town – I think I even read somewhere it’s one of the best cities in Denmark for bikers.

Finderskeepers Design Market Denmark

Early days of May were not special only because the sun finally (and thank god) came here, to cold Denmark, but also because the Finderskeepers Design Market came to town! Yes, Odense harbour was packed with visitors heading to see the latest pieces made by local designers. And as I came to conclusion that the weather is biking friendly, we decided to check it out as well!
