Oslo shopping
I am flying to Oslo in a week, can anyone recommend cool, interesting shops? Maybe things that you don't find anywhere else? Boutiques you like?
Or nice cafés, restaurants?

I dont live in Oslo, but I do live in Norway. Can't help a lot, but there are many H&M stores. You should visit "Steen & Strøm", a mall. They sell Burberry, Bruuns Bazaar, Filippa K, Hugo Boss, Gant and so on.. Oslo also got a Louis Vuitton store not long ago. There is also a Zara store. Maybe this site can help you: http://www.visitoslo.com/index.php?c...11&language=en&

Honestly Oslo shopping sucks I lived there for 6 months and I was ery dissapointed..the best place to shop is wthout doubt the area called Grunelykka, is a more bohemic area with a lot of second hand shops and
independent shops...have fun!

Bogstad.v/hegdehaugs v.:

Voga, bogstadv. 1: Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs, Tsubi, April 77 etc. www.voga.no

Kamikaze Donna: YSL, Prada, Gucci, Cavalli etc

Sole Service - Sneakers. Vans, Adidas, Marc Jacobs Vans etc. www.soleservice.no

KOMA (inside a bigger "department"store (not a department store, but i guess it looks a little like it) called Tatler) - Diesel, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, alot of vintage, etc

M.A - Balenciaga, Ann D, Rick Owens, Marni, Miu Miu.

MaxMara - Sportmax & Maxmara

There's also a really good vintage-store called "Tonica vintage" , but it's very hard to find, as it's "hidden". I think the street is called Schonings gate / street, or something similar, but i'm not sure..

This is def. the best area, but i guess Frogner and Grunerlokka has some OK shops to. I would ditch Steen & Strom as they sell mostly basic clothes, except for store "Norway designs" who carry, obviously, alot of Norwegian designers.

If you're interested, Oslo Fashion Week is next week (starts at 12th or 13th, i think) and i think you can get tickets. I'll be there

If you have only 2-3 hours for shopping, i would stick to bogstadveien (vei = norwegian for street).

Hope this helps.

Edit: I've got some adresses:

Vóga AS

Bogstadv. 1, 0355 Oslo
22 69 07 60

Kamikaze Donna AS

Hegdehaugsv. 27, 0352 Oslo
22 59 38 45

Sole Service

Oscars g 19, 0352 Oslo
22 59 44 11 (they got several stores in Oslo, so i'm not sure if this is the one close to bogstadv.)

Koma

Bogstadv. 11, 0355 Oslo
23 20 23 23

Max Mara

Hegdehaugsv. 23, 0352 Oslo
23 33 03 10

Tonica Second Hand

Schønings g 14, 0362 Oslo
22 60 22 06

Unfortunately, i was unable to find the adress for M.A, but it should be pretty easy to find.

This is btw the information-site for oslofashionweek: www.oslofashionweek.com , if you're interested.

You can't shop there That's only clubs for golf playing..

By the way, you should visit all the stores at Grunerlökka if you like vintage, secondhand and markets.
