Inspiration | Black jeans




The good old black jeans is one of my favorites and definately an item that will get you through all the seasons. No matter what. I'm still wearing the Kex from Acne, great skinny fit!

AIFW | Jan Boelo



It was Dutch designer Jan Boelo's first time to show at Amsterdam Fashion Week and it was one to remember. He just finished his study Fashion Design at the Utrecht School of Art and did various traineeships at Paul Schulten's, Jan Taminiau's and Balmain's. He started his own label in 2010 and he's a big Rock 'n Roll fan which definately shows in his Balmain-inspired collection. I like!

Inspiration | Loves to Have


I'm really delighted to tell you that since last week I'm also writing for Dutch fashion site Loves to Have. Loves to Have is kind of a portal to live, high end label shopping, but it's much more than that. Loves to Have offers the latest high end fashion news linked to shops. Set up more than a year ago they now thought it's time to expand their Loves to Have team with new bloggers to further promote this very special approach in fashion blogging. And of course I'm very excited to be a part of this. I wrote a few blogs already, go check them out and there will follow many more. With special thanks to Nicoline!

AIFW | SIS by Spijkers & Spijkers


Yesterday evening the Amsterdam Fashion Week kicked off with the SIS by Spijkers & Spijkers fashion show. SIS is the second line from designers Truus & Riet Spijkers and for their S/S 2012 collection they were inspired by the twenties and Olympic swimmer Marie (Zus) Braun. And that was visible with the bathing caps and the summer-like play- and bathing suits. I'm surprised that the sisters are into denim as well; next year we can buy a denim jumpsuit, a denim suit or skirt from SIS by Spijkers & Spijkers! Nice work! Photos by Team Peter Stigter.

Denim | Acne Fall 2011

Although ripped jeans is getting a bit last season, leave it up to Acne to make sure that you probably would wear it anyway. Then again, I first like to see this very artistic ripped denim jacket for real. To be honest, I'm not to sure about the fit...to say the least!

Inspiration | Front row

This week it's Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris and as usual big names like Chanel, Dior and Armani are featuring their masterpieces work. Also, Dutch designers Jan Taminiau and Iris van Herpen had the honour to show their haute couture collection yesterday and the press was again impressed by both their collections. As usual, it's important who's sitting front row and what's everybody wearing and you would expect the nicest labels and highest heels. But editor in chief of the French Vogue Emmanuelle Alt is not sensitive to those rules at all and wears just what she likes. And that's what I like about her..!

Streetstyle | Paris

Just booked my trainticket to Paris and although it's three months still to go, the idea that I'm going makes me happy already. First I have to decide if I shall buy myself a new Nikon 50mm lens as it was adviced during that great streetstyle photography workshop from Team Peter Stigter. It's probably a wise thing to do if I want to upgrade my streetstyle pics a bit... Here's a pic from last year and I edited with my mobile camera app, just for fun!
