So  while the girls were jumping in the pool, I spent lots of time working and trying to figure out how to re-brand the BODIE and FOU blog. I think I have now find a design that fits the effortless, simple and minimalist interiors I like to share but which will also allow me to share with you more articles on fashion, well-being, surfing and …

The BODIE and FOU pop-up store opened its doors at the inspiring Vipp flagship store in Copenhagen on Saturday and started on a high, with the visit of her H.R.H. Princess Marie of Denmark who purchased our Limited Edition BODIE and FOU x Vipp15 bin.  Pretty amazing, isn’t it?!

The event has been a success and there is now only a couple of bins left in the shop which you can reserve but they will only be available for collection from the Vipp flagship store. However, fear not, Vipp is starting a waiting list and the BODIE and FOU x Vipp bin will be available at the end of the pop-up store and you can also pre-order it online from us.
