Drama #2

We met Siri (20) by accident while we were talking to Millan from the previous post. It turned out that they became friends while studying the same major. "I watch loads of movies all the time, both old and new ones. My relationship to clothing is pretty much the same, I love both old and new clothes," Siri explained.

We ran into this charming girl who goes by the unusual name of Millan (24). She spends her rainy days in Bergen studying drama science. When we asked Millan where she liked to shop, she did not hesitate in saying: "Noa Noa is like a second home to me, but I also shop quite a lot at H&M."

Grow a mustache

Henning (24) is a busy busy guy who not only works at our favourite store, Pepper, he also works as a freelance journalist and music producer. He listed 2k, Henrik Vibskov and the straight Swedish Filippa K as his favourite brands (all available at Pepper). When asked if he had a fashion tip for our readers/viewers, Henning fascinated us as he said: "It may sound cliché, but don't be afraid to express yourself through what you're wearing. If people express themselves through music and interests, why can't they do it through style?"

Balloon of Bergen

This lovely young girl, Anne (19), caught our attention from hundreds of meters away. Her colourful outfit stood out from the greyscale dressed crowd (one would really think that people dressed more or less in vibrant happy colours on 17th of May, but obviously, that's not the fact). "Today I have enjoyed a nice breakfast which consisted mainly of sour cream porridge [traditional Norwegian dish]. Now I'm on the way to the fun fair where I'm going to ride crash cars!"

Ja, vi elsker

17th of May is Norway's national day, for those who didn't know. And for the occasion, Inger Lena (37) and Bjarte (32) took part in the city's parade. They are members of the veteran bicycle club, Cyclus (which by the way celebrated it's 100 year anniversary this year).

Animated art

This was the second time that day we ran to get a picture of a great guy like this, Gaute (25). He was actually walking around thinking about his exhibition, which was supposed to be exhibited later that very day. It was his graduation exhibition (this was his last day as an art student). "I recently made a total promo-package for the electronica performer Njaal, who is quite known in Bergen's club scene. I made an animated music video, a cover and a poster. It was pretty fun."

While walking through our favourite street, we saw a tiny glimpse of colour from across the road, so we ran for it. And we caught Christian (21). When asked if he was a aware of style and such, he answered: "Well, it is a part of my life, but I'm not obsessed by it. I'm just preoccupied with being comfortable."

It takes two

We didn't plan to take pictures this day, but when we stumbled across these two fashion-forward funny girls, Carima (23) and Hege (23), we just had to ask. "I'll only let you take my picture if you borrow me your shades," demanded Carima. A little surprised by the request I [Alisa] mumbled a "sure". "And also, make sure you write that my jacket is from a store in Iceland called Naked Ape."

Again and again

After sighting the colourful girl to the left, we went up to her and asked if we could take her picture. To our surprise, we found it was Victoria(19), who has previously made an appearance at Brgnstil together with her sister Inga (21). And just seconds later, Inga stepped out of the next door shop. They really bright up the streets of Bergen! "We're actually not only friends, but also sisters. You didn't get that last time," Victoria laughed. Now that you say it, we do see the resemblance!

Another couple we stumbled upon while thinking about crossing the road, is Ingrid (20) and Robert (21). Robert has the unusual occupation of a machine-operator at the cinema. When asked about their style, Ingrid didn't have much to say: "The one over there [points to Robert] tries not to care about it, while I admit that I do care a bit."

While stopping by one of Bergen's finest stores, Pepper, we were impressed by this stylish employee. Her name is Elisabeth (20) and besides working at Pepper, she is also on the board of the county's youth filmclub, HUFF (Hordaland Ung Filmforening). "I love many of the brands we have here at Pepper, especially Acne and Filippa K. Besides Pepper, I get my clothes from Fretex and my mom's closet."

Three's company

This charming trio which consists of Siri (21), Kristoffer (25) and Ellen Marie (24), caught our attention while standing by a zebra crossing. Siri studies to become a teacher, while Kristoffer is already occupied as one. Ellen Marie is an art student in Bergen (not unlike several of the other people pictured on this site). "Kristoffer just bought a bread knife at a flee market. He is very proud of it," laughed the girls, talking about Kristoffer showing of his knife [in a box] for the picture.

Julie (21) and Almendra (20) were headed to a local bar for a cold beer in the sunshine with their friends. When asked to describe their style, both chose two words: retro/hippie-chic. "I like to shop around second hand stores, and I especially do a lot of shopping when I'm in Copenhagen," said Almendra and added "And I shop a lot at H&M, of course."

Det lille kaffekompaniet

This lovely barefooted young lady, Synne (21), works at "Det lille kaffekompaniet", a famous coffeshop in bergen. Be sure to visit it if you're in town, they are simply the best!

Simon says yo

This is an acquaintance of ours, Simon (16). He's funky as hell. He's in a band called Freddy Bang, who plays a mix of indie/rock/funk [The number of musicians you find at Brgnstil is astonishing]. There just isn't much more to say.
