”It squeezes all the advantages of a capital city into somewhere small, cosy and friendly”
On hidden gems in his adoptive city Copenhagen
December 18, 2020
With a background in psychology and a sideways move into menswear design, Englishman Graham Addinall is now the Fashion Director at Copenhagen-based Dossier Magazine. He moved to Copenhagen from England 15 years ago, and has taken his adoptive city to heart ever since — and has bought a great kitchen table.
My favourite thing that makes me proud of this city: That it squeezes all the advantages of a capital city into somewhere small, cosy and friendly. And the food scene is awesome.
My favourite weekend routine: Saturday morning is toast and marmalade in the kitchen, having time to listen to my ‘Discover Weekly’ on Spotify, not getting dressed until 11.00. Then keeping local to Vesterbro for shopping, eating, drinking and meeting up with friends. At the other end of the weekend – a pre-dinner gin and tonic on Sunday evening and a catch up on English soap operas.
My favourite route for a run or walk: I only run if I have a bus to catch (which is never). For a walk during summer though, you can’t do better than a circuit of the harbour taking in Islands Brygge, Christianshavn and back along Kalvebod Brygge.
