The nicest combo

You went so fast, I didn't even get your name. Care to send it via the Brgnstil?

Sunday, December 2, 2007

Beklager for lite oppdateringer, men Karoline har sluttet med siden. Dermed sitter jeg med arbeidet alene. Vi har alltid drevet Brgnstil som en hobby på fritiden, men nå er det faktisk sånn at det er lite fritid og lite penger (vi får jo tross alt ikke betalt for å holde på med Brgnstil). Værforholdene i Bergen er jo heller ikke perfekte, med mye regn og mye mørke. Dette gjør det ikke lett for fotografene.

Jeg håper dere forstår hvorfor ikke Brgnstil kan bli oppdatert så ofte som egentlig er ønskelig.

Kommentarfunksjonen blir midlertidig skjult, mest fordi jeg er lei å slette negative og usaklige kommentarer som ikke er relevante.

Runa (16) likes to wear tight jeans, large t-shirts with a cardigan and always a scarf! - I buy most of my clothes at H&M and Pepper, but as long as i like the outfit, i'll wear it, regardless of brand or shop.

Details matter

Cato (25) is an art student

Notice: I don't mean to advertize for Platekompaniet. It's just I always stumble upon great-looking people there. Besides, it's dark and raining outside.

is like....NIKEEE!!

Snorre Solberg is a young and dedicated sneaker freak. He started collecting "for real" a year ago. Now he's got a pretty amazing collection of kicks. "I dont collect special types of sneaks, like for ex. Air max, but I'm more into having a variable collection even though most of my sneaks are Nikes".

Here's our new photographer, Maria. She's our newest addition to Brgnstil, and you'll be seing quite a lot of her photos here in the near future. We're looking very much forward to cooperating with her and bringing you more inspiration.

Wanna be a street style photographer?

Kjære lesere,

I det siste har vi hatt det veldig travelt og vi ønsker ikke at det skal gå utover Brgnstil, et prosjekt vi er glad i. Derfor søker vi nå et nytt medlem i Brgnstil-familien, en fotograf som kan hjelpe oss til hyppigere oppdateringer. Vi som jobber med Brgnstil får ikke betalt for arbeidet vi gjør, men er du interessert i god stil, fotografering og mennesker er dette kanskje noe for deg.

Om du er interessert, send oss en mail der du forteller litt om deg selv og det er fint om du legger ved noen bilder du har tatt.

- Brgnstil, Karoline + Alisa

Future plans

We met these guys at the new Dropz store in Skostredet, Claudio (28) and Giovanni (35).
Claudio had loads of good Dropz-news to spill: "Well, this is pretty much our playground where we [the guys of Dropz - not all of them pictured here] only do things that we like. We are very different from each other and have quite different personal styles - it equals good business. And it's getting better and better. We're going to sell special edition pieces by Black Milk and Mocca which are made exclusively for Dropz. We are also going to start our own brand which will focus on quality. Maybe we'll even open a lounge."
Keep your eyes open for Dropz in the near future.

The ultimate matcher

We ran into Cecilie (21) at a record shop and immediately fell in love with her perfectly matched outfit. "I'm quite fond of colour and the 50's and 60's. I also sew a bit. I almost always wear skirts and dresses, so I own very few pants."

Paper feature

We are featured in the newest edition of Studvest, a local student newspaper. You can also view the article on the internet here. Check it out!

Heading for Paris

These guys, Mario (19) and Martin (21), are quite a cheerful bunch. "I'm in the marketing business as well as being a DJ - while Mario over here [makes pointing sign] is a skater/manager for Kakkmaddafakka, Snill Pose and Matias Tellez/writer for Natt&Dag. There's a whole lot of slashes," tells Martin. "And I'll soon be on my way to Paris," adds Mario.

Bergen = rain

Pernille (23) looked quite fresh and happy in the pouring rain. "I'm wearing a raincoat and waterproof boots because it's really practical. I dug up this scarf in my mother's closet."

Saturday, September 1, 2007

We adore Inga's (19) cute style. "Today I'm wearing tights, which are my fashion staple, and a new shirt from H&M. I often choose my clothes randomly, and never plan an exact outfit."

Cool cat

We saw Sverre (32) the other day from across the street and working our way over to him was quite hard, but we don't regret a bit risking to get hit by a car! Check out his tiny iPod (attached to his bag) - the matching between the iPod and the belt is really cool.

Black Milk Basso

Anette (22) caught our eye with her great colour-combination. She is currently writing for Natt & Dag, a free paper/magazine which works as a source of inspiration to many people in Bergen. "I got this t-shirt yesterday from my friend, Torgeir. Not only is it cool, but also it's great promo for his online-shop,"

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

This charming lady was on her way to a wine and cheese party, but took time to share a fashion tip: "I think people should wear more colours. Black clothing doesn't make us happy!"

Saturday, July 21, 2007

Wimbledon perhaps?

Lars (24) has not only a great sence of style, but also a cool ride (check out the details on the wheel). "I would categorize my way of dressing as old school tennis style."

Colour coordinate

We think Valborg masters the art of colour-coordinating and matching with elegance and charm.

Air Max

Tarik (16) is basically our sneaker-guru. "These is my first pair of Nike Air Max. They're the best!"

The beauty of bargain

This girl, Elisabeth (26) loves her vintage. "Well, I actually bought this jacket for only 20 cent in Spain - it was a great bargain." When asked which second hand store she likes best in Bergen, Elisabeth said: "Klesskapet, definently. Mostly because they hand-pick and customize their items."

Saturday, June 30, 2007


These brothers, Pål and Axel, are part of a popular local band which goes by the lovely name of Kakkmaddafakka. Their shows are full of energy and humour, and this summer you can find them at festivals such as Storåsfestivalen, Malakoff and Lost Weekend. "A lot of our clothes are from a store here in Bergen called Steez, but not my [Pål] sunglasses. They're from Dolce & Gabbana."

Summer summer

Camilla (26) is a student in Bergen, where she majors in visual communication and graphic design. "Today I'm just going to relax, walk around in the town and eat ice-cream."

Wednesday, June 20, 2007


You may have noticed we don't publish pictures as frequent as we used to do before. That is because vacation-season has just started, and we're both in desperate need of some rest. So from now on, we will try to update every second day, but we can't guarantee anything. We hope that you'll still stick around for new people and new styles this summer.

- Alisa and Karoline, Brgnstil

Ayia Napa vs Roskilde

This guy's sweater was more a minty shade, so one can say that the picture doesn't really credit that. His name is André (20), and apparently we have taken pictures of some of his friends - it's kind of cool that a lot of the style scene people hang out together. André was carrying around a pile of travel catalogues, so we asked him a bit about them: "Oh, some friends of mine and I were kidding around and decided that we should go to a place where it's hot and touristy. But that just dumb, we're really going to Roskilde."

Sunday, June 17, 2007


While browsing through a stack of clothes at a sample sale, we ran into Torgeir (25) as he was flying around on his skateboard. Not only is he responsible for the Fashion Fuel sample sale, but also for a new online store called Dropz. "Today I am really happy and excited, because yesterday we got the distribution for a brand called Trainerspotter, and it's awesome." Check out the sample sale if you are in Bergen (from Wednesday to Saturday, from 12 AM to 6-7 PM)! Also - notice the cool watch on his wrist!

Kauf dich glücklich

This lady's attitude was obvious from across the street, we just couldn't pass by without taking a picture. Her name is Kjerstin (26) and she was waiting for her shift to begin at the much talked about café, Pingvinen. "I think clothes are important, to a certain point. But I do not care about fashion, it's vain." The text on her bag say 'Kauf Dich Glücklich" - anyone care to translate?

Earrings are a girls best friends

Summer has come to Bergen, and the city is all sweaty and sunny. We met Mari (18) at the local good-will shop, and she turned out to be a Brgnstil-reader! "In Bergen I shop at H&M and Pepper, while American Apparel is my favourite when I'm abroad. Recently, I have started to buy more things online. That way, the clothes I wear are harder to spot on other people in Bergen." Check out those sweet earrings too!
