Who is be­hind the Day fash­ion brand?

NITSA It’s the brain­child of Keld Mikkelsen, a Dan­ish de­signer who wanted to blend beau­ti­ful, eth­nic in­flu­ences from his trav­els with vin­tage touches and Scan­di­na­vian sim­plic­ity. The first store opened in Copen­hagen in 1997. Now Day is a global brand, with home­ware and ac­ces­sory lines, too.

What in­spired the new Day col­lec­tion?

In­dia, with its an­cient tra­di­tion of hand­craft­ing and beau­ti­ful tex­tiles, as seen in the em­broi­dery, bead­ing and prints.

And the must-haves?

Look for spe­cial pieces that you can layer: a pais­ley tu­nic, cham­bray shirt with metal­lic em­broi­dery and an asym­met­ri­cal dress.

What are the sta­ples?

The tu­nic is a Day es­sen­tial: it’s per­fect to dress up or down, and can be styled with jeans and heels, or shorts and sneak­ers. A silk maxidress also works over your bathing cos­tume or worn to a din­ner party.

Who wears Day?

Imag­ine a so­phis­ti­cated, mod­ern gypsy, and you have the in­de­pen­dent, cre­ative Day wo­man. The 2nd Day line is fash­ion for­ward, dar­ing and play­ful.
