COOL HUNTING

laborius_reykjavikstory1.jpg

When the impossibly stylish creatures of Reykjavic need something new and natty to wear, the sharpest of them are now heading to the just-opened Liborius. Designer Jòn Sæundur is famous locally for his Dead clothing line—a dark, vicious collection with a fan base that includes members of Metallica and Placebo—and now his new boutique is following suit. Taking a turn toward the light, Sæundur's space is breezy but sharp (think white walls-meets-taxidermy), and he's stocked it with selections by Pierre-Henri Mattout, Velour, and Yoshiko Creations among others. In addition to serving as a fashion feeding ground, Liborius functions as a stage for in-store performances by some of Sæundur's favorite local bands.
