Visiting the JUNAROSE Showroom in Copenhagen

Really cool army jacket with leather look sleeves and on-trend aztec detail.
Stylish suede waterfall blazer.
Cool T-shirts with prints!
The softest, most funky hairy knit! The more I looked at it, the more I loved it.
Black quilted bomber style jacket with rosegold zipper. Amazing, and so versatile!
Camilla from JUNAROSE showing off the musthave black and grey dip-dye jeans 
(sorry for the poor lighting - I hope you can still tell that she's one gorgeous lady!)
Greys and prints are hot the coming seasons!
Navy , stripes, denim, knit - the collections go so well together.
This is just a tiny snippet of the collections for the upcoming seasons, but it bears great promise!

I tirsdags var jeg til møde hos JUNAROSE - det nye, danske plus-size mærke fra Bestseller, som I sikkert allesammen har hørt om efterhånden. De åbnede deres webshop i sidste uge, og jeg var nysgerrig efter at se nærmere på tøjet, samt få lidt mere info omkring dem. Jeg tog derfor ind til deres showroom i København, hvor den søde Camilla og jeg fik os en god snak om mærket, kollektionerne, designet, samt tanken bag dette. Det var superhyggeligt, og dejligt uformelt - præcis som jeg kan lide det. Camilla fortalte bl.a. at der kommer 8 (!) kollektioner om året, og at der kun sidder én designer bag JUNAROSE. Det var jeg ikke klar over, så jeg var vildt imponeret over begge dele. Jeg fik lov til at kramme på alt tøjet i deres showroom, som I kan se, og jeg var meget tilfreds med kvaliteten af tingene. Det var kun et meget lille udpluk af de kommende kollektioner, og alligevel forelskede jeg mig hovedkulds i adskillige af tingene. Der er noget for enhver smag, kropstype og stil. Der er bodycon-kjoler, t-shirts med print, jeans, jakker, frakker, blazere, skjorter, strik - you name it! Der er også kælet for detaljerne og leget med forskellige materialer. Mange af tingene kan styles så de passer lige præcis til ens egen stil, så der er rigtig mange anvendelsesmuligheder. En anden ting jeg var rigtig glad for at se, var at kollektionerne hang så godt sammen. Både i farver, i teksturer og i udvalg. Der er tænkt over, at man skal kunne sætte tingene sammen. Det lyder banalt, men for mig er det en vigtig detalje. Selvfølgelig var det ikke alt i kollektionerne, som ramte lige præcis min personlige stil (det ville også være for meget at forlange), men jeg kunne sagtens se det fungere for andre. Det vigtigste for mig var at se, at det er et trendy mærke, med et ungt udtryk og moderigtigt design. Der er ikke noget "mormor-tøj", og man skal kigge langt efter standardleggings og tunika! Alligevel synes jeg at kollektionerne rammer bredt, og jeg kunne snildt både style forretningskvinden og gymnasiepigen indenfor samme kollektion. Det er fedt! Det er bestemt ikke sidste gang at jeg kommer til at blogge om Danmarks nye plus-size brand, og jeg glæder mig rigtig meget til at følge JUNAROSE for fremtiden - den ser nemlig ret så lys ud.

P.S: Udover på deres egen webshop her, så sælges JUNAROSE bl.a også hos Asos Curve - og jeg ved at butikker som Nanna XL også har ting fra  JUNAROSE fx.

This Tuesday I had a meeting with JUNAROSE, the new danish plus-size brand from Bestseller, that I'm sure you must have heard of by now. They launched their webshop just last week, and I was curious to have a closer look at the collection and get some more info on the brand, so I headed to their showroom here in Copenhagen. The lovely Camilla and I had a nice chat about the brand, the collections, the design and the thought behind it. It was a really casual chat and a super nice atmosphere, just the way I like it! Camilla told me that there will be 8 (!) collections a year, and that there's only one designer behind them all. I didn't know that, and I was super impressed by both. I was allowed to hug all the clothes in the showroom, as you can see, and I was very pleased with the quality. They only had a limited amount of items from the collections in the showroom, but I fell in love with quite a few items anyway. There really is something for everyone, every shape and style: bodycon dresses, t-shirts with print, jeans, jackets, blazers, shirts, knit - you name it! They've also payed attention to details and played with different materials. A lot of the things can be styled to go perfectly with your individual style, so they are quite versatile. Another thing that got me excited, was the fact that the collections go so well together. Both in colour, textures and styles. This may sound basic, but it's an import detail to me. Obviously not everything in the collections appealed to my personal style (that would just be asking too much), but I could very well see it working for someone else. The most important thing for me, was seeing that it's a trendy brand, with a youthful and fashion forward design. There was no "granny wear", and no standard leggings and tunics! But I still think that the brand has a broad appeal, and I could easily style both the business woman and the high school student from the same collection. That's fantastic! This definitely won't be my last time blogging about Denmark's new plus-size brand, and I'm looking forward to following JUNAROSE in the future - because it's looking really bright.

P.S: Besides selling on their own webshop here, JUNAROSE is also sold on Asos Curve!

    1. Hi Els, I've been stalking you a bit, too ;-) I'm not an ambassador though! Just always looking for new designers and shops to recommend to my readers and I was excited to see something from Denmark! Really love JUNAROSE, so hopefully I can collaborate more with them in the future. Have a great trip to their showroom in Amsterdam, I'm sure you'll be amazed! xx

    1. Ej øv, Miriam! Du må ikke give op endnu, for der kommer så meget mere. Jeg er ærlig talt begejstret, og det er jeg sgu ikke blevet betalt for eller bestukket til at sige. Hold endelig fortsat øje, for jeg er sikker på at du vil finde noget du kan lide i løbet af de næste par kollektioner!

    2. Hej Miriam - samme her - kedeligt! Da jeg læste at Bestseller skal lave plus size, var jeg meget spændt, men tænkte også - BARE DE TAGER HENSYN TIL AT VI KAN IKKE GÅ MED SAMME SNIT SOM ALM STR PIGER - og de gjorde de slet ikke! Det er bare alm tøj :(

    3. Jeg forstår slet ikke at du ikke synes at de har taget hensyn. Jeg har efterhånden set så mange plus-size piger i Junarose, helt op til str. 54, og tøjet sidder rigtig flot på dem! Deres jeans har stretch og de er med højere talje end ellers. De har mange bodycon eller figursyede ting, men det er der jo også mange plus-size piger der kan (og vil) gå med. Derudover har de altså også ting, som er oversize på den cool måde. Jeg er bestemt tilfreds, især da det er deres første kollektion der er ude nu. De skal jo altså lige have lov til at komme igang.

    1. It really does! Aaw, that's so sweet of you. I would've loved to, but they chose some other danish bloggers. Hopefully I can still collaborate with them on some other projects! Either way, I think they are a great addition to the plus-size industry! I'm excited to see what you've picked, babe. And congrats on being an ambassador, you deserve it! :-* xx
