GREAT (shared) SPACE FOR RENT!

_R5A9771

After 8 happy months in our popup shop at Gl. Mønt 21 it’s time for us to move on – because we have decided to become a real shop some place else. But it’s with a bleeding heart we have to say goodbye to the cosy space in the very center of Copenhagen’s bustling shopping life.

We are certainly going to miss the vibe and the fun loving people of Lala Berlin with whom we have shared this lovely space – them on the upper floor, us on the lower.

We hereby pass the space on, but it is important for us to find someone who will take good care of it and treasure the shop as much as we have.
The space is available from August 1st.
Please contact shop@yvonnekone.com for further info.

Blowing in the wind

In the 90s I was wearing maxi skirts paired with trainers most of the century. This spring the maxi skirt has sneaked into my wardrobe again but in this time I pair it with our wax print shoes just like the beautiful Clara

Spice up your day!

Finally all our wax print versions are available in our shop. If you like them you shouldn´t hesitate too long -just a little advise since they seem to leave our stock pretty fast these days;)

WAX PRINT VOL. 2!

Making plans

_R5A0813

This is me. In Tuscany a few weeks ago when we were visiting one of the factories that produces our bags. I´m probably looking into a problem with a zipper, but it does not seem to trouble me.

The process of finding the right partners to work with has been long and challenging -I almost gave up during the process. But now it looks like all the sleepless nights and hard work have finally paid off. When I´m here in the middle of the production process I feel so happy and exactly in the place I should be. However there is never enough time, even if the normal work day is from 8-23 while I´m there. So I have been trying to figure out how  to solve this problem. And after my last visit the solution was suddenly clear; I need to be in Italy more often, but most of all I need to stay longer. So in order to be able to experiment more and make room for more innovation in the process, I´m going to stay in Italy for 1 month from the end of this summer. I´m going to bring my 3 kids (and leave my husband behind;() while I will try to juggle home school and production visits. And as a bonus there will be time to  enjoy the beautiful landscape, the great people and maybe learn a little Italian. I can´t keep talking via google translate.

Thanks to Line the production process has once again been captured. I look forward to show you glimpses from our last visit very soon. Besides Line my sales manager, Annika and assistant, Sara was there and it was such a joy to see what amazing people I´m working with. Grazie!

Sunday couple

_MG_1489_R5A2920_R5A2924_R5A5618

I love that special, lazy Sunday feeling that can be hard to find during the week. I usually do absolutely nothing on Sundays but today I´m going to put on my sandals and bum bag and bring my family for a little trip outside the city. Enjoy your Sunday! I hope it will be filled with joy and tranquility.

May…

…equals sandals. Every day!

I already gave you  a little background info about our t-strap sandals, but if you have not tried them on yet it´s about time. The leather sole is baby soft and extra bouncy so you can actually wear them for days without getting the “flat shoe” feeling. I´m so happy you liked them too as I must admit I was a little nervous when we 6 month ago decided to stock A LOT of them. But now that the stock is almost gone it turned we made the right decision the day we placed the production order. THANK YOU!

Psst…

Bum bag

You have seen our bum bag many times before but the reason is that this bag is SO practical and cool at the same time. What more can you ask for in one bag, perfect for festivals, travels, cycling well even dancing!
