Birds of Paradise

I know I am so out of season by wanting these CHANEL tatoos....but I just looked at them again, and especially the chain bracelets are pretty amazing. I am thinking about getting a real small tatoo as well. I just love Niels Holgersson, and I found the cutest little birds on the back of a 20 Kroner bil in Sweden:
The 4 small ones can be a really nice tatoo, what do you think? Have a nice weekend!

Theyskens resort

This denim, as seen on the first picture is RAD. I found my favorite word again. With the sidesplits and the relaxed styling, don't forget the shoes and the mirrorglasses she embodies a certain coolness I can't even imagine. Oliver Theyskens resort collection for Theyskens theory is all about quirky tailoring.
The goal of the cutaways and collar slits, he explained, was to give jackets the ease of a cardigan without losing a shred of their edgy elegance. I also love the way how the pictures are taken, great angle. It is almost as the girls from the streets, walked straight onto the runway. A beyond interesting collection!

New Blood

I just spotted these illustrations from artist Tara Dougans. She has illustrated the the student collections from the Design Academy of Antwerp. Artist Tara Dougans interpreted the breakout final collections from this year's seven graduating students, an international mix hailing from Germany, Poland, The Netherlands, Belgium and Japan. “I thought about all the talented people I have met who burn brightly, and the concept of ‘a moth to a flame,’” Dougans explains of her finely wrought graphite illustrations with an entomological twist. I am curious who the designer from the Netherlands is. I have visited two graduation shows last week by the way. I will show you some pics of them later. I think it is always inspiring to see New Blood, with high HOPES and DREAMS....

Fringy Margiela

I remember going to an exhibition of Martin Margiela in Antwerp. Exquisite! I thought every men or women that walked into the gallery was actually Martin Margiela. I see him or her as an observative person. I would like to go to my own exhibition incognito, just too see what the publics reaction would be towards my work. It is just interesting, that we just do not know who he is....ok in my mind he is a men;)
This resort collection of Martin Margiela, has this slightly seventies glam. The hippy feel, which I love. Although I can see were Margiela got his inspiration from, I still love this total collection. Unlikely for margiela it is almost trendy, if I must say. Referring to the fringes, the seventies feel and the translucent (long)skirts. I love the soft focus-color blocking, what a ravishing collection!

Philip Lim....Ava Adore


The temperature is rising and then goes down again.....one thing that REALLY made me happy this morning is looking at the resort collection of Philip Lim. Immediately I get the song Ava Adore in my head....or Perfect...Sorry for being sentimental, but it is so nice to see a collection that comes so close to perfection. "the beginnings of a quintessential summer wardrobe", Translation: loose layers and relaxed silhouettes.....Again you see the grey melee suit, did I just discovered a trend? I also saw it at the collection of Stella mc Cartney; the whole suited up thing. It looks a bit like pijama-dressing. I really like the idea of dressing relaxed in an elegant and edgy way....
Also pay attention to the bags....PERFECT

TEE

I don't know how the designers do it, but the resort collections are out! These are my three favorite looks of T by Alexander Wang. Simple Elegange with and Edge in jersey fabrics. I haven't worn grey-melee for a while now, but I am starting to like it again. Dressing up and dressing down all in once!

Stine Goya

The talented Danish designer Stine Goya has designed her second collection for Weekday. This collection is very playful and sensual at the same time– My latest collection for Weekday creates a contrasting mood that is soft and feminine with a confident and strong attitude. Added details as gold press buttons, zippers, soft shoulder pads and tiny pockets emphasize the playfulness of the collection, says Stine Goya.The watercolored black and white print is so amazing! Just guess what I have bought in Stockholm....I will show it to you later...

Urban




























Shopping is what I did a lot the past few days.....in between sun bathing ,having super nice food, meeting nice people and having a good time. Stockholm is breathtaking! Or did I say that already? One thing that really got to me was the smell, it is soooooo good! As if there is constant perfume in the air. So fresh, sparkling and sweet!
Here are some pictures of Urban Outfitters. The shop is a mixture of all things GOOD! Inspiring books, the cutest jewelery, lomograpy camera's and mostly scandinavian design I guess. Rodebjer a favorite swedish brand of mine was there too! Also Cheap Monday and Mini Market just to name a few... Gosh, I want a shop like that in amsterdam!
