My first stop was at the Hotel Hellsten situated in the heart of the city. It has an eclectic lounge full of old vintage suit cases and Budda heads and with its maroon walls has a cosy feel and my favourite find here was the Mosaic Chair in the lounge. I love the tropical pattern...feeling inspired and its only day one.
Although this city has an established art scene and great fashion brands like Acne, Monki, Cheap Mondays, H&M who's head office by the way is in the city centre....has a different vibe to Paris. I would describe the fashion as ' Less is more', colours are refined and the cut is clean and simple but still distinctive.
