Bralette, Lover; Trousers, J Brand. Earring, Pamela Love; Sweatshirt, Band Of Outsiders. Bra, One Teaspoon; Shirt, Equipment; Playsuit, One Teaspoon. Silk Camisole, J Brand; Bikini Bottom, Rachel Comey. T-Shirt, 6397. Cardigan, 6397; Jeans, Current/Elliott. What better way to kick off the first half of a fresh literally love-able month – hello February! – with a new editorial? You Smiled Because You Knew (c/o Arrigo Boito, made more known by Shakespeare), inspired by Valentine’s Day, but without the heart shaped balloons and personalized chocolates. Because all we réally need are silk pj-like trousers, complicated bra tops and soft striped men’s style cardigans… Photographed by Sabrina Meijer. Styled by Nicole Huisman. Model Pascale Alberti @ De Boekers. Make-up and Hair by Yokaw @ Angelique Hoorn. All clothes via The Dreslyn. Special thanks to 3-room boutique hotel Sweet Dreamz for letting us shoot at your place. EDIT: Thank you Peggy for pointing out the quote was actually originally by Arrigo Boito.

GÉMEAUX, NUMÉRO

Tags: , , ,

How fabuleux is Maggie Mauer in this editorial by Julia Hetta for Numéro November 2013? The styling is right on the edge of the unwearable (those super long sleeves do nót come in handy for the average 9 to 6 job, haha). But it is oh so beautiful. While the rest of ‘Gémeaux’ was about the fine lines between women’s and men’s clothing and Maggie only plays half of the astrological twins in this, this one photo stood out to me most. The shapes, the volumes, the colors. And the shoes, the shoes! Very inspiring! Full editorial to be found in Numéro November 2013.

WAKING UP IN PARIS

Tags: , , ,

No no no, we are not in Paris again! These shots were taken right after Waking up in Paris on our very last morning in our temporary apartment in the 16th arrondissement that was just too beautiful to not use it as a background for one of my ‘editorial’ try outs. And what better subject than my Fashion Week partner Anna and her neverending story of hair? As some of your might have noticed, I am concentrating more on photography and a bit less on ‘me’ around here. For the ones that come here to see what I am wearing, don’t worry, I will keep posting images of what I wear on a regular basis (hopefully in a more creative way than just snaps on the go). It is just that I feel like it is time to develop what I am really truly passionate about and that is photography. I am still kind of a rookie when it comes to creating imaginary stories – these shots are all taken without any proper lighting (just natural light) – but I thought it would be fun to take you on my photography journey of trial and error (isn’t that the best way to learn?). Thank you friends of TravelBird for letting us stay in your utterly gorgeous private home.

ONEINDIG SCHIER

Tags: , , , ,

Ever since the launch of Dutch Vogue back in March, I am a loyal buyer. Subscriptions are not my cup of tea, but I am a faithful white cover collector. I have to admit I do not read it cover to cover – I am skipping most of the interviews unless they are with people I already found interesting – but I definitely have my favorite spread each and every issue. This time (November issue), it is one of the spreads from the ‘Oneindig Schier’ editorial about the new silhouette, starring Mirte Maas, styled by Dimphy den Otter and photographed by Annemarieke van Drimmelen. It is just beautiful.

JESSICA HART FOR MAISON SCOTCH

Tags: , , ,

Jessica Hart looks a-ma-zing in this Maison Scotch campaign. Minus some of the super-boho items, this is what I want to look like all spring/summer. I love the first outfit – have to have those knee patched jeans! – and that leather jacket in the third look is the bomb. Let alone the outfit with the cut off jeans shorts, the linked belt and crispy white shirt, finished off with some subtle gold jewelry. Very cool. ph/ Benny Horne for Maison Scotch

BRING IT ON

Tags: ,

We all know that it’s fall that is waiting for us right around the corner. Only until a couple of days ago I was kinda still waiting for summer and whenever someone would bring up the word fall, I was like ‘wtf are you talking about, summer hasn’t even been here yet’. But after seeing this editorial in Cover Denmark (styled by Emelie Johansson? < kind of having a style crush on her work) I think I’m ready. Fall, bring it on! ph/ Le Fashion
