Kronkron store was opened in the year 2004. The store was located on the main shopping street in Reykjavik, Laugavegur.
The owners of Kronkron are the designer duo Hugrún Árnadóttir and Magni Þorsteinsson.
"We started out with a few up and coming designers like; KTZ, Marjan Pejoski, and the Danish brand Wood Wood. We quickly grew and took aboard more labels such as Eley Kishimoto, Roksanda Illincic and Henrik Vibskov. Our little, beutiful shop became too small for us and in March 2006 we moved to a much larger space on Laugavegur 63, close to our old spot.
The new space gave us new ideas and further more, we could add more labels. Today we also carry established labels such as Vivienne Westwood, Sonia Rykiel, Marc Jacobs and Bernhard Wilhelm.
We have always aimed at a wide range of customers, of all ages and both men and women. Our wish is to be fresh, fun but at the same time we take our work seriously. The store is a fun mixture of colors and styles, like visiting a sweets factory filled with goodies".
They aren’t limited by trends or seasons but the spirit of Kron by KRONKRON is timeless and above all feminine. All collections are made to mix and match previous collections, making the design easily collectable and timeless.
