Rabens Saloner, Copenhagen
A unique and beautiful store in the centre of Copenhagen
Rabens Saloner was founded in 2007, by Birgitte Raben Olrik. An adventurous, creative and a traveller at heart. Most of the collections she creates on her many journeys to exotic and hidden places in the East, as she strives to find small artisans to help bring her collections to life.
Today the brand is being sold in big parts of the world. At the core of the brand lies the important feeling that everything has to come from the heart.
In the basement you'll find interior products. As Birgitte lives half of the year in Bali, a lot of the interior items come from there. The rest is handpicked from her many travels around the world. To mention some examples they have glasses from France, rugs from Morocco, African towels etc.
The main floor is for Rabens Saloner clothes mixed with handpicked vintage items from Los Angeles. Also there are brands from around the world such as jewelry brands (the FF's, Dream Collective), makeup brand (K Weiss), underwear (Love stories intimates) and scented candles (P.F. Candles). At the top floor you will find Marie-Stella-Maris care products.
All these brands combined with Rabens Saloner create what they like to refer to as "The Rabens Universe" - a unique atmosphere.
"You’ll find small niche brands, that you won’t find everywhere else, like the products of Marie-Stella-Maris. My favourite is the body wash and body lotion. The consistency is fantastic!"
When you carry a garment from Rabens Saloner, you stand out. If not by the design, then by the luxurious fabrics, that are often handmade and hand-dyed by small artisans in Asia. It’s an ever-developing journey for Birgitte to find and work with new, exciting people that help create her universe.
Asia has been a fascination and love of hers for years – and it’s likely to continue to be so.
