SQUARE TOES

Ahh, I love the square toes on these icy blue ankle boots. They would be perfect with the white cotton dress I am wearing as I am writing this (though not so much with the 32°C today, ha!).

Ankle Boots, Acne Studios.

OLAF HUSSEIN’S ‘FIRST’

When it comes to Fashion Week, Amsterdam is always first on the calendar. What else is a 'first' is young menswear designer Olaf Hussein, who debuted on the catwalk last Thursday. In the midst of all the hectics that went on backstage, we had a chance to meet this talented guy and his creative business partner Daniel to talk about their very first show, their inspiration and future goals.

But in order to process the effects of this little ball of fire, we must enjoy responsibly (yes, you’ve read that somewhere else before).

THE NEW FRINGE

Yay for the fringe no longer being an exclusive thing for the western and/or bohemian festival girl anymore. The fringe is back - from never completely being gone (oh the cyclical thing that is called a trend) - in its most modern (and flattering!) way possible and I am loving it. Especially when it's in the form of the softest leather skirt ever. (In case you haven't noticed, I am very much into skirts lately.)
