What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘Norway’? Trolls? Vikings? Oil and gas? Or maybe Ole Einar Bjørndalen? If you know who the last one is, congratulations, you know quite a lot about Norway. But can you name at least one Norwegian clothing store? Most of you will probably say ‘no’. Today we want to fill this gap and tell you about 5 Norwegian online clothing stores every shopper should be familiar with.
Established in 1994 and aimed at supplying Norwegians with brands not previously available, Stress became a place where Oslo’s sneakerheads go to get laced. The first brands that appeared there were Stussy, Carhartt, Adidas. These iconic brands are still important to the shop. Standing for over 20 years, Stress was also the first shop in Scandinavia to sell Nike as a lifestyle brand, rather than strictly as sportswear.
Halens.no offers its shoppers a finely selected choice of clothing for women, men and kids, gifts and household goods. Originally Scandinavian casual streetwear brands like Only, Veromoda, and Vila are offered alongside smaller brands like Happy Holly, Amy’s Stories, Trulymine and a few others. The Household section (‘Hjem’ in Norwegian) offers a collection of cozy and stylish interior items.
Ellos came to Norway from Sweden in 1983. It’s a huge online store with a wide product range varying from clothing and makeup to electronics and household items. What makes Ellos special is its separate plus-size section with a great choice of fashion apparel and shoes for curvaceous ladies and sturdy gentlemen. If you want to shop Scandinavian brands, then Ellos is a store you should visit.
Concept boutique Boozt is a curated universe of fashion and design. Always on top of new and modern trends in fashion, Boozt remains aligned with contemporary culture in every sense. Designed with the highest usability and simplicity in every detail, Boozt.no offers high-quality casual wear, sports clothing, as well as classy and chic party dresses and suits.
The name of the store speaks for itself - Moods of Norway is a quintessence of the truly Norwegian shapes, colors, materials and styles mixed with contemporary fashion trends. Founded by Norwegian designers Simen Staalnacke and Peder Børresen, the brand unofficially offers two stylistically opposite collections: traditional apparel made in soft colours, and bright clothing with geometrical prints. You can imagine how different the two collections are when we tell you the three names of Moods of Norway fans: Metallica, Coldplay and Katy Perry.

P.S. If you decide to shop at a Norwegian store, you need to know that:
Norwegian currency is called ‘Norwegian Krone’, and has two abbreviations: NOK and kr.
Item color in the Norwegian language is ‘Farge’, size is ‘Størrelse’, ‘Antall’ stands for quantity, ‘Add to cart’ is usually ‘Legg i handlekurven’.
If you don’t want to spend hours trying to figure out what ‘Pikétrøyer’ is or which ‘Leveringsmåte’ the store offers, you can ask someone at Parcl to help you with shopping in and shipping from Norway!:)
