As winter approaches, you might spot an unusual sight on the streets of Denmark: fashionable people (mostly women) wearing an all-in-one ski suit worn predominantly by toddlers.

These ski suits (or rather "flight suits") have become a fashion trend in Denmark in recent years, and they show no signs of stopping.

Sam and Josefine discuss the past, present and future of this trend with lifestyle expert Julia Lahme, and what it says about Danish culture as a whole.

We discuss:

  • How flyverdragter are linked to the importance placed by Danes on fresh air
  • The history of flyverdragter - from shipyard apparel to fashion item
  • Why it is deemed a human right (kind of) for small children to have flyverdragter in Denmark
  • Flyverdragter in other countries, and how it is a growing export market
  • General fashion trends, especially as the Covid pandemic finishes
