I’m still on my Iceland kick.

9 Sep

Another interesting thing about Iceland, there isn’t any American retail or restaurant chains.  I know, catch your breathe.  They’re able to dress themselves without the Gap, Old Navy, and whatever other retail chain that Americans rely on so much in the morning.  There is one large mall where they have a TopShop (British retail chain), Zara (Spanish chain, now in the US) and G Star Raw.  The outcome to their attire is more thought and purpose in what they wear.  If it’s not that, it’s based on function in wearing hiking gear or protective clothing to keep them dry from the rainy weather.

Here’s a street blog I found that captures what you see walking around the downtown area.  Click on the link to direct you to Reykajavik LOOKs blog.
