Café de Concert performs at Moods Of Norway opening in LA
On July 9, Oslo planted a flag in L.A. as the Norwegian fashion brand celebrates the official grand opening of its Robertson boutique, the first in the U.S., and previews its fall collection. Designers Simen Staalnacke, Peder Børresen and Stefan Dahlkvist were on hand to meet shoppers, with cocktails and waffles plus a live performance by pianist Aksel Kolstad. Snow was trucked-in for a cross-country skiing demo. The store showcases kitsch such as an actual-size golden tractor (the brand’s logo), a white picket fence and a jam-jar chandelier. The colorful and youthful line retails between $25 and $850 and runs the gamut from dresses to three-piece suits to T-shirts and denim for men and women.
