LOWLANDS

I guess you could say we have our very own Coachella in the Netherlands, for twenty years Lowlands has been the festival of festivals. This was the first time for me being able to go and it all started at the Converse Compound. Seeing Ben Howard – after dancing to the tunes of Django Django – do his thing on stage could be described as magical, goosebumps head to toe. I have to say my weekend could not have taken off any better than this, shitloads of fun!

CLOSET AFFAIR 2.0

IN MOTION

Tags: , , ,

Going in a more sophisticated -with less colors and prints- collection, Ready to Fish_ presented their new collection called ‘In Motion’ in Amsterdam on Tuesday. Inspired by movement of dancers, they came up with clean cuts and simple pieces, while trying to keep it refreshing. Going through the collection, I fell for the amount of white, a black semi-sheer long shirtdress and a coated dark jeans -which is nothing new, but I have never seen such a nicely done coating before.

Victoria Spruce, Vogue Talents Award Mark Goldenberg, Vogue Talents Award Ichiro Suzuki, Fashion Collection of the Year winner Marius Janusauskas, winner of the Diesel Award For the eleventh time in a row, the Italian city Trieste was all about ITS, International Talent Support, a platform dedicated to the scouting and support of young creative talents from all over the world. If there is one thing in fashion that I absolutely love, it is seeing young talent, real talent. This year’s concept was all about the duality between GOOD and EVIL and everyone visiting ITS, whether as a jury, contestant or as press, had to choose for one of the opposite poles. Over the past few years I have seen the work of many fashion students and graduates, but I have never been so impressed by anyone until Ichiro Suzuki. He got inspired by the works of Bridget Riley, Escher and Vasarely and English classicism and his collection was nothing like any other collection I have seen recently from such a young designer. Mind. Blowing. The young Suzuki says to create his alter ego when designing, which was clearly visible when he entered the catwalk in an easy white t-shirt, jeans and flipflops. Apart from attending the jewelry and accessory exhibition and the fashion show, I was lucky to discover the beauty of Trieste as well, with its amazing architecture, beautiful sea and of course delicious food. I mean seriously, Italy is the only country where I gain weight easily.
