The reworked model, called the Working Bag One Pocket, remains a bestseller to this day. Other standout items include a navy alligator-skin tote and a pair of grey suede ankle boots.

Freemarket is one of the most original concepts to launch in Denmark, and is based on the 21st-century phenomenon of tryvertising. Customers can register online for a monthly fee and then shop for up to 10 things from the Freemarket store each month. They then have the opportunity to try these items and can pay them by writing a review. Could this be the future of shopping? Watch this space.
