SHOPPING IN NORWEGIAN OUTLET

Everybody loves shopping. Well, alright, not everybody, but most of the people. But even those rare ones love sales and when you combine outlet and sale you have yourself a small trip to Norwegian outlet.

Norwegian outlet is situated some 30 kilometers south of Oslo, half an hour drive with the car or 40 minutes with public transportation.

We went there with no expectations, especialy knowing norwegian prices and seeing shops represented in the outlet.

Hugo Boss, Gant, Tiger of Sweeden, Nike, Philippa K., Lee, Bergans….everything from fancy to casual and sportswear.

Prices? Well, hot…. prices in general are high but there are sales from 50 to 70 percent so you can find sport jackets for 600 kroners or pants for 360. A bit high for me as I’m used to buying stuff in HM, Cubus or second hand but I didn’t leave empty handed.

I found this lovely dark blue shirt dress for just 100 kroners. Made in China, of course, but soaked in luxury

The material is lyocell (a form of rayon which consists of cellulose fibre made from dissolving pulp) that has a strong shape and it’s very nice to the touch. It’s going to be a nice everyday dress.

When I saw the original price, it hit me once again, how things are overpriced and how underrated human work is. Or is it the other way around according to new capitalism?

KUPOVINA U OUTLETU

Svi vole šoping, zar ne? No, dobro, ne baš svi (Debeli), ali većina ljudi (ja). No, čak i te rijetke individue vole sniženja, a kad se iskombinira božićna rasprodaja i sniženja u outletu imate mali izlet van grada.

Norwegian outlet smješten je nekih 30ak kilometara južnije od Osla, pola sata vožnje autom ili 40 minuta javnim prijevozom.

Debeli i ja smo otišli bez ikakvih očekivanja, posebno imajući na umu norveške cijene i vidjevši na internetu marke koje su zastupljene. One koje ni u kojem svemiru ne prakticiram.

Hugo Boss, Gant, Tiger of Sweeden, Nike, Philippa K., Lee, Bergans….sve od fensi do casual i sportski.

Cijene? Ha? Kako molim? Cijene velite?

Visoke. Barem za moj trenutni (povremeno zaposleni) standard. Istinabog sniženja se kreću od 50 do 70 posto, ali originalna cijena je ubitačna pa na kraju dođe na isto. Ne kupujemo. Doduše, sportska oprema se može naći za razumne cijene, tipa sportske jakne (koje su jako bitne ako idete planinariti) koštale su 600 kruna ili iste takve hlače 360.

No, ni ekološki osviještena (š)krtica kao ja (često kupujem u second hand trgovinama, gdje se nađe sjajna odjeća za malo novaca, a ja onda

1) ne trošim puno i

2) ne gomilam stvari koje mi nisu od životne važnosti) nije se vratila praznih ruku. Našla sam divnu tamno plavu košulja haljinu za samo 100 nok (80 kuna?). Made in China, ali božemoj, što danas nije iz Kine. Marka je Soaked in luxury. Baš za mene.

Haljina je od lyocell (neka vrsta celuloze) i ima dosta čvrst oblik i debelu formu, a na dodir je poput brušene kože. Bit će to sasvim zgodna svakodnevna haljina za proljeće, jesen.
