Diesel’s current collection is all about what’s his is hers and what’s hers is his. We photographed a few of our favorite couples – all dressed in Diesel – and let them tell us their love story.

AN ODE TO SNEAKERS

Tags: , , ,

I am writing this as I just spent 3 days of wearing heels for at least 8 hours and a few miles a day. I love my heels, but there are only so many hours until any heel becomes unbearable.

MODEL PROFILES / NAMARA VAN KLEEFF

Tags: , ,

Namara van Kleeff (19, VDM Model Management) was scouted only seven months ago while shopping in Amsterdam. A few months later she walked her very first shows during Couture Week in Paris: Chanel, Valentino and Giambattista Valli. “The Chanel show was so special. Even the catering backstage was spectacular.” She left her hometown Zoetermeer and het cat Muffin for Sydney, where she is currently residing for modeling work.

MODEL PROFILES / KIKI BOREEL

Kiki Boreel (19, Code Management) graduated from high school exactly one year ago and has been modeling full-time ever since. Her highlights so far? A Vogue Netherlands shoot at the beach and the Olympia Le-Tan show during Paris Fashion Week (‘I got to drink champagne before the show and had to pretend I was a naughty schoolgirl’). She tells us all about her love for Joey Tribbiani and Sudoku puzzles.

MODEL PROFILES / CLARINE DE JONGE

Tags: ,

Even though Clarine de Jonge (16, VDM Model Management) still lives with her parents in a Dutch village called Bussum and has not finished high school yet, she has already scored some pretty big jobs since she got scouted as a 14-year-old (while shopping at Zara!). Last season for example, she was a Calvin Klein exclusive and even got to close the show. “Walking that show with the skyline of my favorite city – New York – in the background made me feel so proud! It was hard to hide my happiness on the catwalk.”

HER THE LABEL

Tags:

Summer has officially kicked off yesterday and that – more often than not – only leaves one big question… Who’s ready?! Most women immediately start to sweat (both literally and figuratively) when the first rays of sunshine hit town. Our bodies are never ready and finding that perfect bikini or swimsuit is like finding a bobby pin when you need one. Regarding that first ‘problem’, we obviously all have our insecurities, but I do believe we should definitely be more confident and embrace our beautiful selves. I mean we don’t need to be completely #flawless (my dearest Beyoncé) to be pretty.

GIRLS IN FILIPPA K: CHLOE LEENHEER

Tags: , ,

She is an actress and photographer and apart from wrapping up the last month of the highly successful theater play War Horse in Antwerp, Chloé Leenheer also previously starred in our Denim Stories. As she’s currently on stage 7(!) times a week – busy bee much? – you can imagine how excited I was when she agreed to play a role in our Girls in Filippa K serie(s).

AMERICAN WEST

Tags: , , , , ,

My first experience in the US was when I was 16 (maybe 17, possibly 18) and my parents decided to go to New York for New Years. I convinced them from the fact that they couldn’t leave me behind and there I was – too young to go party – with my mom and dad (who were too old to go party) – stuck at the tourist trap called Times Square to see the famous ball drop to the stroke of midnight. But it was there and then that I fell in love with the Big Apple, maybe even the US. Over the past few years I visited New York one but never too many times, mostly for Fashion Week, sometimes for projects or to visit a friend. I have been to LA three times, Las Vegas once and San Francisco twice. I even went on a fantastic road trip from Las Vegas all the way down to LA. My biggest dream though is to visit the real American West and go on a road trip without planning too much on beforehand. Preferably by motorcycle, just because it’s a little cooler (literally and figuratively). And so we teamed up with Diesel and mega babe Milou to create a style story inspired by the American West (please bare with us as we only know it from the movies).
