New Year. New Me.

Every year, January represents the beginning of something new. Not only because it is the beginning of a new year but also because many people take the turn of the year as an occasion for a fresh start. So, this rather cold, dark and inclement month offers the perfect reason to take a look at your wardrobe and ask yourself: Am I ready for the new year? Do I want to bring a breath of fresh air into my winter wardrobe?

Here are some great items and pieces that I think you’ll love in the new year. And they come from brands you probably didn’t think about yet. Think: New year. New me. So why not try something new?


Let’s start with accessories. While you might easily figure out that Sandqvist is one of my favorite brands when it comes to bags and backpacks, I recently discovered the label NORTVI. Some of their items definitely made it to the top of my 2023 wishlist.
