NIKE CORTEZ

Tags: , , ,

About a week ago, Vogue magazine locked Nicole, Lizzy and me up for a day in this awesome new studio called Automat, with a table of healthy snacks, a polaroid camera, my usual camera, a rack of clothes and a few pairs of Nike Cortez sneakers, to each style and capture three different looks. They kind of remind me of old school bowling shoes, but in a really cool way… For the first look – with the black Cortez – I kept things really simple with a black silk shirt, a matching silk scarf and wide legged trousers. For the second look – with the classic white pair – I styled a sweater from the menswear department (which makes me look a bit like an ice skating champion) with suit trousers that have eyelet details all the way down the side. And for the last look I paired the metallic Cortez with my new favorite velvet trousers and a classic striped shirt and big gold dangling earrings. For more images and to see Lizzy’s looks, go to Vogue. Pictures by Nicole Huisman. This post was created in collaboration with Vogue and Nike.

Yes, I made it! I ran half a marathon in super hilly San Francisco! It was a long – sometimes even painful – journey, but it was probably the most satisfying thing I have ever done in my entire life. On to the next?

SPORTSWEAR AS CASUALWEAR

Tags: , , ,

Wearing sports clothes as part of a casual everyday attire is nothing new under the sun. Classics have been making their biggest comeback. Think Nike Air Force, Air Max 1… Kind of like a family tree that reincarnates and starts all over again.

MONTHLY CRAVINGS

Some of you might think ‘huh, what’s this new face doing here?’ and some of you might recognize me from the first Style Talk back in April. I am Nicole and I work as a stylist and shopping editor at Dutch ELLE and from now on I am going to throw in a monthly wishlist on afterDRK. Kicking off with my greatest love – denim! Because denim is versatile and best friends with my other great love, leather. Because it can be dressed up ├índ down, it works for many and for many occasions. MiH Made in Heaven, or MiH, is one of my ultimate favorite denim brands. Mainly due to their unexpected fits, like a high wasted semi-skinny with trumpet legs – my personal favorite – or the slouchy chopped and cuffed boyfriend Phoebe, here combined with the ultimate sexy: a deep ballet back. Light jeans I like to match my light blue denims with crispy white, to keep things fresh. Leather biker This leather jacket from BLK DNM is the newest addition to my personal wardrobe, the best biker ever made. I have to admit the price tag is quite hefty. But when items really suit the rest of your closet and your personal style, they are worth the investment. I have been wearing it ever since it passed the cash register. Cozy knits Is there anything more comfy than cozying up in a cuddly sweater? Dries van Noten makes this seasons best, with a subtle shimmer detail. The soft structure of these kind of knits makes a good clash with raw denim. Sneakers and beanies In my spare time, I like to wear my denim cool and boyish, with an easy-going sneaker and hair-care-free beanie. Accessorizing Denim gets an instant upgrade from a handsome bag or refined jewellery. Necklace, Tiffany & Co.; Beanie, Carhartt; Sweater, Dries van Noten; Sneakers, Nike; Jeans, The Row; Leather Jacket, BLK DNM; Bag, Sophie Hulme. by Nicole.
