A London Snapshot With Pernille Teisbaek


With her beatnik-meets-boho style, Danish blogger Pernille Teisbaek looked the part of a local when she landed in London in May. As luck would have it, the usually rainy skies gave way to spring sunshine and the stylist and editor of the website The You Way was happy to play tourist with Michael Kors.

Wearing pieces from our Transeason 2015 Collection that she picked out at the newly opened Sloane Street Collection store, styled in her signature effortless fashion, Teisbaek took to seeing the city. The Kors London Travel Diary was her guide to everything from art galleries to high tea. Read on for a peek at some of the highlights and plan your own trip to the bustling metropolis.

10:00AM: SHOPPING  Stopping traffic and stopping by the Michael Kors Sloane Street Collection store in Chelsea.

Start your day with a visit to our new Sloane Street Collection store, and then shop your way down King's Road  for a true Chelsea experience.

Q: What was your favorite piece you found at the Michael Kors Collection Sloane Street store?
“The jewelry is stunning—the knot gold ring and bracelet are so elegant and timeless, they were, for sure, my favorites!” 
Q: What was your impression of London street style?

Q: What’s the one thing to Instagram when you visit London?
“The beautiful surroundings of the Serpentine Galleries—it’s an amazing spot.”

5:00PM: SITTING & SIPPING  Finishing the afternoon in an oh-so-British way with a tea and treat at Claridge’s in Mayfair.
