Fashion is everywhere

AFTERDRK x DIESEL

Tags: ,

Back in New York during Fashion Week I have been working on a very very cool project with Diesel to introduce their new jeans range called Fit Your Attitude. The idea behind it all is that there’s a jeans for everyone and for every occasion, an idea that I’m a firm believer of. Now I’m not going to ruin the surprise and reveal everything already, but there’s a video featuring me coming up on Diesel’s blog tomorrow, so make sure to check it out!

LOST & FOUND

Tags: , ,

I feel so honored being featured in the second issue of Lost & Found magazine. To me, this is not just another magazine, it’s different and the stories and images are more than interesting. For this issue, they ‘coveted’ my closet and asked me about the stories behind a few of my favorite items. We celebrated this second issue last night with a suuuper nice dinner in a cool spot in Amsterdam, where I also first saw the spread. I have to say, it still feels very unreal to see myself in all kinds of magazines.

This is my I’m-currently-moving-and-this-was-on-top-of-my-boxes-look. I’ve been painting/cleaning/moving my ass off this past weekend, to make sure we’ll be done before leaving for Paris Fashion Week this Thursday. I have a super duper full show schedule ahead, lucky me I am loaded with energy from excitement (moving to an insanely cool house + PFW = double excitement) at the moment! H&M jumper, Diesel jeans, Tommy Hilfiger shoes, Kurt Geiger bag and Style by Marina scarf.

HARTENSTRAAT 23

These pics were shot just a day before I left for New York Fashion Week, at the COS store in Amsterdam, to celebrate their opening in the 9 streets. I already extensively expressed my love for this chic H&M-sister (or brother, choose whichever you like), but I thought I’d share once more. The clothes are – most of the time – very well tailored, cut out of good fabric and simple, but always with a little difference about it. Just how I like it…

I’d say this is a lifechanging coat for me, no? Most of my outerwear is either black or darkgrey, so I’d thought I’d go for the opposite for once and choose white. Apart from the fact that it gets dirty real quick, I LOOOVE it! Gotta play Wendy the Builder again, we’re painting our house at the moment and I can’t let the boyfriend do all the dirty work. Won Hundred coat, Samsoe & Samsoe leather pants, Alexander Wang boots, Kurt Geiger bag and Rayban sunglasses.

MARNI x H&M

Tags: , ,

The Marni x H&M collection from my point of view. I have to say this collection is waaay more me than the Versace x H&M one, more toned down, awesome materials and some strong pieces. My favorites are the patent caramel leather mixed with grey fabric top, a bag in that same caramel color, the shoes (so comfy!), the pyjama suit, the patent black leather mixed with blue fabric jacket and even those yellow earrings. I know I haven’t exactly been a spokesperson for earrings in the past few years, but I’m getting more and more into them and they could really make a statement, no?

ALAÏA

These Alaïa lace-ups (and every other version/color of them) have been growing on me lately. They are the ultimate sexy shoe and I could use a shoe like that. I can see ’em collaborating with my Dr Denim (rolled up) jeans, with my Acne boyfriend jeans and even with a leather skirt. Too bad I need to be thinking interior now – since I’m moving in together with my boyfriend this weekend – so no happy feet for me in the next few months. That is unless I want to sit on the floor instead of an actual couch… Hmm, have to think about it. ph/ Jak and Jil

A PEEK INSIDE

Tags: , , ,

During London Fashion Week, right before the Burberry Prorsum show, I got a quick peek inside the My Wardrobe headquarters. So much fun and the stuff that’s coming in looks amazing. Sorry for keeping the message short today, but I’m moving out and it has to happen quickly and smoothly since I’m also preparing for Paris!

BURBERRY PRORSUM

Tags: , , , , ,

The show that I of course was most excited about while in London for Fashion Week is Burberry Prorsum. I would have never thought I’d be visiting shows this big, but my little girls dreams have been really coming true lately (I mean, Margiela, Viktor & Rolf, Rodarte). So, if Christopher Bailey would be dressing all women next season, the streets would be filled with cool cropped jackets in either a brown suède or an army green bomber version, with an exception of a tiny houndstooth printed wool coat or a chocolate brown suède button down one. I could live in a world like that. Especially in a world where also an oversized forest green cropped cardigan, crocodile leather gloves in either an orange or yellow hue are added and where peplums are taken to the next level. This is exactly why I’m in AND into fashion.
