The summer season is over us and no matter if you are into festivals, if you are going to spend your time at the beach or you are staying in at your summer house, Hunkøn has some styles to get you into the right vacation mood.
Here at the office, summer time is the best time at the year, and we really look forward to swimming, having time with our dear ones and spending our days without no plans. We talked to our Head of PR Cille, our CEO Trine and our Creative director Anne about their plans for the summer.
Anne – creative director at Hunkøn:
What are you doing this season?
Im going to Croatia with my boyfriend and two kids and we are doing something as simple and oldschool as camping in a tent. It´s going to be so cool and im so looking forward to chilly days, doing nothing except being together and taking time as it comes.
We have a small ”kolonihave” – a small house with a green garden in the city where we are grillin, doing the garden and drinking cold rose wine together with good friends, while the kids are playing outside.
What are you looking forward to?
I look forward to swimming with my kids. Normally we have a busy time, but summer times are anything else than busy, its just cosy times chillin and taking everything as it comes.
And then i am a food lover, so ofcourse i look forward to all the great food they have in Croatia and all the fresh fish we are going to eat.
Which Hunkøn styles are you packing?
Trine – CEO at Hunkøn:
What are you doing this summer?
I am staying here in Denmark with my family and hoping for a sunny summer. I am planning being a turist in my own city and going to see all the things I normally haven´t got the time to see. We are going swimming at Refshaleøen, biking to Broens marked to eat the best burgers in town from Gasoline Grill and enjoying that we live in one of the best cities in the world.
I also have a small dream about visiting Vesterhavet, but lets see what comes up. Most importantly summer is all about taking time to do exactly what you feel like.
What are you looking forward to?
Going to the beach, eating ice cold watermelon, having a cold drink and just chilling.
Which Hunkøn styles are you going to wear for the summer?
Cille, Head of PR:
What are you doing this summer?
Summer is the best time of the year. I am a July child, so summer means birth day party, swimming in the ocean, hanging out with my daughter and husband and strolling around in Copenhagen in our new Christiania bike.
We are also packing our bags and driving to the Northern part of Jutland where my parents are having their summerhouse. Im so looking forward to chilly days with no plans, swimming in the ocean and having a nap during the day.
What are you listening to:
Normally i am going to a lot of festivals since I used to be a music booker, but since I became a mom i haven´t had the time. This doesn´t mean that music is not part of my everyday life, now it´s with me when I drive around in Copenhagen, make food or sit at the office. Right now i am really into Charlotte Day Wilson, the danish artists Jada and Soleima and then I love Solange.
What are you eating this summer:
I love food and on Sundays me and my family love driving around in Copenhagen trying new small shops, drinking great coffee and chilling. I like coffee places like Arrebo on Nørrebro, The Coffee Collectice and Rist on Værnedamsvej - some of the most expensive coffee in the world, but also some of the best. On day i will make a foodie guide for you guys :-)
In the Nothern part of Jutland there is a tradition for selling fresh strawberries and watermelon from small shops on the street, and for sure i am having strawberries with cream and sugar.

A festival chat with Mille Gori
This week we sat down with the lovely tv host Mille Gori, to talk about her plans for the summer in Denmark. We know Mille loves the festival season, so who else to ask about where to go, what to see and what to wear at this summers festivals.
What are your plans for this summer?
This summer I work in a circus. I haven't had a summer vacation for almost 7 years and I am really a festival girl, so this summer I have planned a lot of one-day tours to visit different festivals from Heartland to Skanderborg and Musik i Lejet. I cross my fingers and hope for a great summer, with a lot of sun.
We know you are going to a lot of festivals and also performing on one of them. Where can we meet and hear you?
This summer you can meet me in Circus Summarum, which is one of the greatest events for children in all ages. First in Copenhagen and then in Aarhus and then I will visit the children's area at the beautiful festival Musik I Lejet 19th of June. You should go visit it.
What can you recommend to hear and experience if you are in Denmark for the festival season?
For many years, Roskilde Festival was my favorite. Staying at a camp with all my friends and being awake until early morning was fantastic, but time changes and now my favorite festival is the beautiful Smukfest in Skanderborg in Jutland. It´s a great combination of beautiful surroundings with nature, creativity and the good mix of music and cozy moods in all corners. I really love it.
And then I would like to highlight one of the new festivals in Denmark, Heartland, it offers talks, exciting food experiences, beautiful surroundings and music and areas for children and adults.
What is a good festival for you? Who to hang out with, what to eat & drink?
A good festival for me is where i am not in a hurry, but where i have all the time in the world to talk to the people i meet and dont have to plan the whole day. Its a day where I give myself time to drink a cold beer, hear music in the sun and enjoy the spontaneous things that may come.
What is a great festival outfit for you?
Festival outfits means loose comfortable clothing, practical and then it has to be something I can move and dance in. I love colors and a summer festival calls for colorful clothing.
Tell us about your 3 favorite Hunkøn pieces for your festival season and how and when will you wear them?
Three very colorful pieces of clothing, simple and practical. It´s also three styles you can dress up but at the same time feel relaxed in, and I especially love the Roxie Jumpsuit. The thing i love about colorful clothing is that it allows you to do everything. You can both go "more is more" and add everything from belts to accessories or you can go simply and still get a wow effect.
How do you feel when you wear Hunkøn and why do you like our clothing?
I think it's nice with a brand that makes clothing for all days. Hunkøn has clothing that fits for party, work, an active day and relaxation. I love all their colors and the fact that they have clothing where I can both feel feminine and sporty at the same time. And then of course i love, that it is a Danish brand.
For me clothing should be nice to wear, I hate things that squeeze and make it impossible to do whatever falls into your mind. For me it´s important to feel and look nice at the same time. That´s what Hunkøn does for me.
