MAKING STATEMENTS WITH MARKBERG
Markberg is here to rock your wardrobe.
Markberg is rebellious. Markberg is that one friend in the group who owns a motorbike and rides through the night. She’s also the friend that has your back, through thick and thin. She’s unruly and wild, but she’s sophisticated and sharp. She’s got attitude, she’s got substance and she’s got class. We’re delighted to introduce you to Markberg, the Danish accessory brand that has landed at Magpie Style.
As with many rebels, a strong sense of romance runs deep through their veins, and the same can be said for Markberg. Founded by real-life couple Mette Astrup and Rune Klemmensen, the Markberg narrative is one of love, commitment and beauty, with an edge. The duo strive to create sensational accessories that you’ll use and cherish for a lifetime. Now, this is a love story with depth and devotion; animal welfare, human rights and environmental initiatives are all core chapters in the Markberg tale.
Their Scandinavian style shines through and gives their products a certain uniqueness that is refreshing to see on the New Zealand market.
THE MUST HAVES
It’s rare to discover a brand that offers beautiful products that are well-made, reasonably priced and functional, but Markberg ticks all of those boxes. There’s more than meets the eye with Markberg delights, so let’s get better acquainted with some of the wonderful items that we currently stock, shall we?
Firstly, let’s take a walk on the wild side with the ‘Vega’ cross-body bag, which we’re thrilled to offer in black, yellow snake print and leopard print, made from buttery, Italian calf skin and goat skin. These exotic looking bags are adapted for the everyday, with a zipped internal pocket, a zipped external pocket, a magnetic button closure and adjustable cross-body strap. This is the ultimate statement bag that will turn heads styled with casual black clothing and Chelsea boots during the day, or your go-to cocktail dress and heels for those special events.
Whilst it takes a dash of daring to opt for the yellow snake print, it’s guaranteed to spice up any outfit, and the compliments are yours for the taking. But don’t delay, with limited numbers available in New Zealand, these eye-catching bags won’t stick around for long.
Now, whilst we’re surely in denial about the arrival of the colder months, it needn’t put a dampener on your mood or your style. Markberg’s gloves are simply some of the most stylish we’ve seen. They’re timeless additions to your seasonal wardrobe that will last many a cold snap to come.
Enter their ‘Helly’ glove. These gorgeous gloves are part wool, part leather and we’re fully in love with them. The knitted element of the glove can be worn folded down as shown, or pulled up for that little bit of extra warmth up the arm. Either way, your hands will be both warm and chic this winter. Now, the ‘Helly’ glove has a magic trick up its sleeve. When sporting your new Markberg gloves, you can still use the touch screen function on your phones and tablets. This is certainly one brand that understands the life of a busy woman.
With three different sizes to choose from, you’ll never have to suffer ill-fitting gloves again. In general, we find that a taller woman will usually opt for a larger size, to allow for plenty of wrist coverage. That said, the Magpie Style team are only too happy to talk you through all of our sizes in store or online here.
