From champagne breakfasts to city parades, discover here how Norway's most stylish celebrated their country's constitution day

As we go into our first spring without restrictions after two years, every day feels like a small celebration. With Norway's National Day (17.mai) being all about meeting family and friends, sipping on champagne, and basking in a city lined with blossoms and sun, it couldn't have come at a better time.


Plenty of our favourite models, musicians, and fashionistas cheered “hipp hipp hurra” and celebrated Norway’s birthday with waterfront brunches, city parades and some impressively intricate bunad designs. Here we chart how the Norwegian style set spent their national holiday.
