Denim on denim

To wear denim on denim is not that easy as it seems. It always looks so effortless and great on somebody else, but I find it really complicated and never can pull this look off. These two streetstyle pics prove (again) the opposite and are excellent examples of doing it right. Guess I still need a little practice...

R13 SS 2013

R13 is still one of my favorite jeans labels; amazing denim, perfect fit and with just the right details. And in a way they're pretty creative as well. Again, with the rigth details. Enjoy a few looks from their spring 2013 collection. Sadly still not available in the Netherlands, online at Shopbop and SSense

Emerald green

Cavalli Fall 2012 

Kenzo Spring 2013 

 Miu Miu Fall 2012

Acne Spring 2013

Pantone, the global authority on colour, named emerald green as thé colour of 2013. So what makes me curious at this point is who was first? Is it really Pantone or is it the gifted designer who's discovering the right track? Anyway, Cavalli, Kenzo, Miu Miu and Acne are designers with predicted talents concerning colour choice...

The Man Repeller

to repell ~ to cause aversion or distaste 

She's one of the most influential bloggers at the moment and yet she has launched her blog 'The Man Repeller' only two years ago. Leandra Medine's blog is mostly about trends that women love and men hate, where she features self-portraits wearing edgy and eccentric pieces that risk repelling the average man. Medine is very funny and perhaps that's just what differentiates her from all the other streetstyle blogs out there. 'I think what’s so interesting for people is that I don’t take it so seriously and yet I am still immersed in the fashion industry,' she said in an interview with the BOF (The Business of Fashion). 

About two months ago I wrote a blog for the Dutch fashion site Loves to Have about the statement Tee she was wearing during NYFW. It turned out to be a 30 euro American Apparel T-Shirt and she mixed it with a Marc Jacobs pants from the SS 2013 collection. Controversial and fashionable at the same time. Yes, The Man Repeller is definitely one of my favourites now!
