Blue Blood Tee

Like this Tshirt from the Blue Blood Fall collection!

Next generation

According to Carine Roitfeld and co of French Vogue these young and fresh-faced models are thé rising stars at the moment. They are all French models and could be seen as the next generation of power players. Well, and we all know how significant Carine's influence is in fashionworld.....Besides, this photo was shot by Viktor Demarchelier, son of great fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier.


Nice version of a sequin jacket! Photo from Jak & Jil.

With or without

With or without a little knit? Knit sweaters tight around the shoulders is a trend we see more often lately. What do you think, is it just 'a thing' for chic men in Milan and golfers? Or should it be allowed again...? Photo from Jak & Jil.

Renate for Replay

I must say, Renate Verbaan looked fantastic on the Replay catwalk showing their SS 2010 collection at AIFW last week. Photo from ILoveFashionNews (Peter Stigter).

Garance in FOAM Fotografie Museum A'dam

FOAM Fotografie Museum presents a unique fashion blog photo exposition!

Dondup Jeans

About 15 years ago I bought my first real jeans jacket in London. This jacket was from the brand French Connection and I really felt in love with it at that time. Through the years a few Levi's jeans jackets did their best to please me.... But now I found myself a new 'best jacket', in Italy. This Dondup jeans jacket has got a beautiful faded colour blue, the perfect length and is worn out at the right places. (Picture of the jacket later this week...)

To Long-Nam

To Long-Nam is a young Paris-based fashion designer. In 2000 he graduated in Fashion Design in Berlin and after a few jobs as a designer assistent he founded his own company. This fall he will launch a menswear inspired womenswear collection with beautiful suits. Definitely a designer to look out for. Well done!

Garance Doré in Amsterdam

Garance Doré was in Amsterdam! She is one of my favourite bloggers and she was invited over by AIFW to jury for 'Lichting', the runway show for the recent graduates of the seven Dutch fashion schools. Garance blogged that she really liked all the cool girls on bikes in Amsterdam....Photos from Garance Doré.

Miu Miu winter 2009 campaign

Have a look at these wonderful photos of the Miu Miu winter campaign. It is a surprising twist because there are no celebrities involved this time. Miu Miu goes minimal!

Our Bette Franke

Have a look at these gorgeous photo's of the Dutch topmodel Bette Franke from the Vogue Nippon of August!


Kate Moss is always ahead of the game and now she has been spotted with these black patent ´Jackson´ loafers by Repetto. The Repetto store in Paris said that there is an increased interest in these patent shoes available in black or white. The ´Jackson´ loafer will be online available from ASOS and in the Repetto stores from August. Let´s beforehand practice the moonwalk!


Pietrasanta is a small village on the coast of northern Tuscany in Italy. A town with lots of artists, sculptors and galleries. It is considered as the number one place in the world for marble working. And with his narrow cobbled streets and lovely restaurants it is 'a visit you can't refuse'!

Black summer

For those people who still say that wearing black in the summer is out of the question. This looks certainly summery to me. The sleeveless coat is beautiful! Photo from the Sartorialist.

Wonderful combination!

Different fabrics and different colours, but a wonderful combination! These pants are só winter 2009! Photo from the Sartorialist.

Pucci Denim Bag

Who could think that Emilio Pucci, the most colorful designer in fashionworld, would design a denim bag? This Pucci metal and denim bag is wonderful!!!

Bike Fashion

One of my most faithful readers had an accident on her bike a while ago. Everything is fine with her. The driver of the car did not see her because 'she was dressed all in black'...what a stupid thing to say! So Chrisje, these photo's are for you!


Everybody in Paris was talking about the Givenchy Haute Couture Show. Amazing pictures from Jak & Jil.

Have a seat!

Is there a more beautiful way to discover your seat at this Dior show? Photo from Café Mode.
