'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! ;)

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! ;)

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.
