STYLE TALK WITH MILOU

STYLE TALK WITH MILOU

Milou van Poortvliet works as a Marketing Communications PR Manager at Diesel Benelux and she always looks impeccably cool. She is one of those girls that can effortlessly get away with wearing head to ankle menswear, while still looking super sexy. She owns the other half of my Balenciaga earring (that we bought when we …

AMERICAN WEST

AMERICAN WEST

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 …

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT / MILITARY

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT / MILITARY

Last (but not least, ha!) in our The Kids Are All Right series is Moisha, showing how the military look is done. Military can be a bit tricky, especially because it can be quite the sensitive thing to be called a ‘trend’. But I do believe the right army green parka or strong boot (we …

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT / DENIM

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT / DENIM

Is there anything other than denim that never really comes and goes, that is always just there though still can be called a trend? Maybe leather – in the form of a biker jacker – but eventually denim always wins. It’s been out there since the late 18th century and there is no doubt that …

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT / ROCK

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT / ROCK

Rebellious, raw and a little rough around the edges. It might seem like a tough trend to follow when you’re not the typical rock ‘n roll type of woman, but with a little femininity in the form of lace or a girly dress, rock becomes much softer (and thus easier to wear).

DENIM STORIES WITH ANOUK

DENIM STORIES WITH ANOUK

Denim is an ultimate classic (and classics we adore), even though it comes in uncountable varieties. Whether it is a denim jacket, a good old pair of skinny jeans or one of the boyfriend-kind. We all know how difficult it is to find the right one, a match made in heaven. The one that makes …

COLLAR UP OR DOWN?

COLLAR UP OR DOWN?

I have a slight feeling the upturned collar that I used to do back in the days is making a comeback. Are you in or out? Collar up or down? Denim Jacket, Diesel; Shirt, Rika.

HAPPY EASTER (IN ALL WHITE)
OUR OWN i-D

OUR OWN i-D

Starting in 1980 as a hand-stapled(!) fanzine with text produced on a typewriter, i-D Magazine came a looong way. A Thursday ago they launched their Benelux version together with denim tastemakers Diesel and I have to admit my pinky toe is still a little numb from the heels I wore to the party. (I am …

WEARING WINTER WHITE

WEARING WINTER WHITE

My mom always used to try and teach me black boots don’t go with white jeans and – even if in most cases she’s right – this is my attempt to prove her wrong. My attempt on wearing winter white (thé color of this month) too. I mean I wouldn’t try this with knee length …
