GIRLS IN FILIPPA K: CHLOE LEENHEER

GIRLS IN FILIPPA K: CHLOE LEENHEER

She is an actress and photographer and apart from wrapping up the last month of the highly successful theater play War Horse in Antwerp, Chloé Leenheer also previously starred in our Denim Stories. As she’s currently on stage 7(!) times a week – busy bee much? – you can imagine how excited I was when …

YOGA ROOKIE

YOGA ROOKIE

I can run, but I am a total rookie at yoga. It’s 2014 and I tried yoga for the first (and second, and third) time this year. Can you believe it? My first yoga lesson was a few months ago, when one of my friends took me to a class to try it out. What …

SEASON CHANGE

SEASON CHANGE

It i funny how at the end of each cold season, I always long for the day to stuff my Winter coats in a deep dark corner of my home (in the hopes I’ll never need them again) and switch to hot season clothes. And then on the first properly warm day, I’m like: “What …

THE SUMMER ISSUE

THE SUMMER ISSUE

It is July and that means it is summer!! Wait, not really, not in Amsterdam, but at least I experienced some of it in Ibiza last week and the good news is that I will be spending some time in the sunny Gran Canaria ánd Los Angeles this month. I thought we would only be …

RUFFLES FOR A DAY

RUFFLES FOR A DAY

First a dress, now a skirt. It must have been ages since I last wore one, let alone one with ruffles. I like it though and it feels good to mix that tomboy deep down inside me – I used to climb in trees, not play with Barbie dolls as a kid – up with …

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING

As you are reading this, I am walking around Paris to hunt down the coolest bag and other good things that are just better when bought in the city of romance. I kind of restricted myself to visit no more than three stores, since there is more things to do than just shopping, right? One …

AN HOUR LEFT

AN HOUR LEFT

This is my third and almost last day in the beautiful Barcelona with Mango for their #MangoSummer experience and I am super sad to be flying back to normal life (and ugh, rain plus cold) in Amsterdam tomorrow in the afternoon. My flight is around 1pm, so I will have an hour or two in …

A FAVORITE

A FAVORITE

This is one of my absolute favorite combinations; a crisp white classic cotton shirt, worn with a somehow sporty jacket. It is always fun to play with a bit of a contrast, whether it is in styles, shapes, colors – ok, maybe that one not so much – or volumes. Jacket, Acne; Shirt, Gina Tricot; …

BEGIJNENSTEEG

BEGIJNENSTEEG

Now that we have a scooter to navigate around the city, this hoodie tied around my waist was more of a functional choice than a fashionable one, since higher speed means more wind which equals instant cold. Yes, I could have easily put on an angora jumper or a snugly coat, but spring sprung a …

TORTOISE

TORTOISE

Some might say I have the best collection of coats, I like to think the same goes for my sunglasses. I developed this ‘thing’ for sunglasses in an early stage of life, when I used to buy all kinds of sunglasses while on vacation for what seemed just for the sake of buying them. One …
