Happy New Year!

It's almost the end of the year and I must say, 2011 did go fast. Very fast. But hey, time flies when you're having fun and are doing the things you like doing. No, you will definitely not hear me complaining. Let's hope 2012 will be as exciting as 2011. For all of you! Happy & healthy 2012!

Laura is hot

'Laura is hot, Doutzen is not'. Newbie girl Dutch-born Laura is featured in the Balenciaga SS 2012 campaign photographed by Steven Meisel and she was voted as one of the top ten newcomers. This is one of her first major campaigns after walking for Balenciaga in their AW 2011 and SS 2012 catwalkshows. Let's keep an eye on this girl. Oh, and next spring, messy hair required! ;)

NSF jeans

Even fellow blogger Fashionminded was impressed about the (mens) collection of this new Californian denim label NSF. And so am I about the 2012 women's collection. This relaxed boyfriend has got an amazing wash. Not available in the Netherlands. Not yet. Fashionminded and I will keep you posted. Of course. 

A.P.C. - minimalistic chic

A.P.C. is minimalistic chic. And sometimes slightly boring. But, however, it must be said, they use fine fabrics (especially wool) and the clothing is constructed well. Personally I like their fitted knitwear the best - as the knitted sweater above. I tried one on several times, didn't buy it though, don't know why, but I do like 'their Parisian touch'.

Update: saw this really nice A.P.C. anthracite knitted sweater at Zolamanola (Utrecht) this afternoon and guess what? I bought it! ;)

Italian Cycle

To tell the truth, it was my friend Desi who - years ago - drawed my attention to the Italian jeanslabel Cycle. She has been living in Italy for many years and and she happens to know the right fashion people over there. So I guess she was one of the first Dutch girls wearing Cycle jeans. Lucky her. The same can be said about Golden Goose, another Italian brand which is becoming quite popular over here at the moment, but again, my friend was wearing it years ago already.... How convenient to have a friend with a real good taste in fashion.

R13 was launched in the fall of 2009 in New York City and their jeans are made from Italian denim. They use a rugged but thin denim with just enough stretch to make their jeans feel very comfortable. How nice. And R13 turns out to be very strong at redesigning classic fits. For example, a baggy fit becomes a slouchy skinny fit and their skinny jeans is very relaxed...love this fit! How tempting. With special thanks to Denimology. You can buy R13 (only) at the recently opened shop 66 AVENUE in Amsterdam.
