A Norwegian in New York

MM No. 270


Maren Morstad is a twenty-seven year old Norwegian Art Director who works at the creative studio, Eyeball, in New York City. Having previously lived in London for four years, in December 2012 she decided it was time for a change of scenery and landed with two suitcases filled with Maison Martin Margiela, ACNE Studios, vintage treasures and one lamp.

She calls home a minimal loft in the heart of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, where she feels a deep sense of community that brings back memories of her hometown Oslo. Maren’s wardrobe is a true reflection of her personal style; she is a great fan of men’s shirts and blazers that she mixes with feminine bottoms. On the weekends you can often find her having dinner at “Do or Dine” or sipping a drink at “Project Parlor” dressed in the most effortless outfit.
