Nature Extends


JANTAMINIAU, to me is a true artist. He designed a collection of 5 unique pieces, called ' Nature Extends’   for the Floriade. This is a World Horticultural Expo in Venlo, the Netherlands that will start from april 5th - october 7 th 2012. These pieces are almost nature itself! Beyond beauty if you ask me.
From 7 untill 13 May 2012 there will be a Floriade Fashion Week. I think this will be very interesting. The theme is consciousness and sustainability in Fashion. This will be presented from different angles and moments in time.  Goal is to inspire the visitor from the Floriade and to make them conscious and curious about their projects. 
Lidewij Edelkoort will give a lecture and catwalk photographer Peter Stigter will do a workshop in street photography. Also a workshop called " Design Piece" by Peter Leferink, will be very interesting if you ask me. These workshops will be available for fashion design students. I guess this is the only moment, that I want to be a student again!!

This long dress is amazing, it is almost if she is wearing a curtain, but she is not.....It is a very thin line. I love the contrast of the fragile dress and the leather jacket on top. I have found this picture on Stockholm-streetstyle.com

Capsule

Acne has just launched the new capsule collection designed in collaboration with London-based artist Daniel Silver. These pictures are just amazing. I love the ethnic feel of it. The two tone knitted cardigan has my name written all over it! I also love the two different colored sleeves and the pencil skirt without side-seams with this gorgeous print is just insane!

Bruno Pieters for WEEKDAY

Bruno Pieters for Weekday....Can anyone book me a ticket to Stockholm P L E A S E!  I am a fan of Bruno Pieters work ever since I did an internship with him in Antwerp after I graduated my MA in fashion design. 
When I think of Bruno Pieters I think of contemporary elegance and innovative lines. Bruno is the latest designer to join the Weekday Collaboration project. Before him there was Stella Goya, wich I also absolutely love.
The renowned Belgian born designer has created a collection that embrace his signature style, a design that is fresh, timeless and sophisticated. A collection that focuses on shape and proportion. Two important sources of inspiration were cubism and the late 1940’s style. Bruno Pieters to me is such a perfectionist, like Karl Lagerfeld he does all the photography of his collections himself. I really like it that he would like to keep control of his final look until the last moment. This to me, shows that he has a very strong vision of what he would like to present to the world.
The Bruno Pieters collection for both men and women is now available in selected Weekday stores. Unfortunately only in Scandinavia, so I guess this is a really good excuse for me to go to Stockholm again!

 3-dimensional eyeliner....I love this look seen at Richard Nicoll. A simple clean face, simple hair with this block at the end of the eye. I am going to try it myself....keep my fingers crossed!

Waterproof

These transparent PVC pumps by Richard Nicoll seem so handy for this rainy weather! Although they not seem to fit the models very well, in the right size everything will be allright! I Love the metalic nailpolish, S T U N N I N G !

Oh, this is Chanel by the way SS12, AGAIN an underwater theme. It seems that all the big Labels are swearing together like; OKAY, this season we are ALL going to do the same theme. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!? It is becoming rather dull, if you ask me...The setting from this show is fantastic by the way. The WHITE underwaterworld...Beautifully done!

Charlotte Olympia makes the most gorgeous shoes. I could never walk on them, since I am sooo tall, but they are also just so nice to look at! I don't know about the loafer trend that is setting in, but she also has the cat face in a low loafer model, good news for me! The gold embroidered cat face is so adorable. Here are some pieces from her FW 11 collection. I love the classic nude quilted satin clutch with removable hand-painted enamel and crystal brooch.Her logo is an spiderweb that you can also find on the trompe l’oeil suspender tights, with classic visible seam. Danger!

Phoebe Philo

I am sooooo looking forward to the CELINE SS12 show of tomorrow in Paris, it is not even normal! OK, that was a very bad literal Dutch translation too english, but I don't even care. Phoebe Philo is one of my favorite designers. To me, she is as modern as a woman can be. She tailors to a woman's sensuality, offering classic and chic looks with a subtle sexiness; FRENCH, but MODERN, I can't really find another word for it. Can't wait, oooh lala!!
