‘Wise Men's Clothing', is what the name really means, which is ironic, for Spaksmannsspjarir is an exclusively women's boutique. Enigma may well be the theme of these designs, for they have mystically deep hues and imperial cuts. Not all can carry off the almost ethereal look, but they do have much to select from. Strong, deep materials moulded into feminine works of grace and teamed with just the right accessories: every creation is in a class of its own.
The vibrant and historical culture of Iceland comes alive in this store, made famous by its myriad of hand made articles, such as bags, mittens, scarves and decorated bed-linen. Managed and designed by a feisty lady, this little gallery makes Iceland an unforgettable memory for all those who stop by. A gifted interior decorator as well, she will advise you on colours, design and furniture, and will even come to your home (within Iceland, of course), for a personal evaluation at about 9700 kr an hour. The designs have also been part of many an exhibition, and if you are looking for something to spruce up your pad, a couple of hours at Ma Mi Mo might just reveal some uniquely tasteful surprises.
An Icelandic lady-designer owns and runs this pretty little shop, Aurum. She sells only her own lines of jewelery and clothing. The design is excellent, modern and special, so this is the place to visit if you want to bring back something really unique from Iceland. Aurum is a place where beautiful things and rather reasonable prices go together.
