New York: Kisan

Another shop with a cat in its name. It used to be one of my favourites in Reykjavík as it had this Parisian state of mind, but it closed. Now there’s a shop in New York as well as a webshop. The owners have travelled the world and they carefully selected their brands. And that goes to show. They sell a lot of pretty foreign stuff which I really like: perfumes, notebooks, candles, handbags, jewelry, travel items, house thingies (once saw this very nice Bambi lamp), design clothes … Back in Reykjavík they used to sell the prettiest selection of Icelandic lópapeysa (woolen) clothes in town (but of course – it was rather expensive). Now they have among others Kron by Kron Kron, a drop dead gorgeous Icelandic brand and the Belgian brand Essentiel.

Kisan, used to be on Laugavegur 7. Now there’s a shop called Maia. It also sells pretty things, but the focus is more on clothes.
