Brilli


The Belgian designer Natalia Brilli puts a new spin on that old saw: If you have to ask how much, you can’t afford it. Among her catalog of curiosities is this fake Rolex watch, called a Nolex, which she covers in soft buttery leather, suggesting that if you have to know the time, you also can’t afford it.

Brilli, who has designed accessories at Rochas, is hypersensitive to the conclusions people draw about the character and status of someone wearing a luxury product. So far, she’s encased everything from skateboards to medical alert bracelets in black or silver leather. But sometimes, she’ll pick a bright electric hue. Really gorgeous if you ask me, I put the Nolex on my wishlist..

BLOW UP

I have seen a movie once, BLOW UP, what a great film. Anyway I found this picture on nowmanifest. Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi share with us the original print that was blown up many fold to create the patterns for Preen’s SS 2012 collection. I have always been interested in how prints can be percieved. When you blow something up, it suddenly becomes a new shape. This screen just looks really amazing!

Leather jacket...Where Art Thou?

Ok, this leather Balenciaga jacket is to dye for. I love the casual way of dressing of Miranda Kerr by the way. But she will probably look good in anything.....in any case... Love the Cropped trousers and sharp stiletto's underneath. Or the long dress + Leather jacket looks stunning.
It has been a while that I wrote about my leather jacket obsession. I just can't find the right one for the right price. And in my personal life I seem to lose all my leather jackets. They get stolen, I leave them in places or I just lose them and never find them back. I have seen a nice one online, maybe this one I will keep forever....

The French..

I have a special fascination for French women. Their natural beauty; effordlesly CHIC.
Jane Birkin for me is such an inspiration..and Audrey Tautou, more modern. Off course Garance is in here too. Really cool, how she just cut of her jeans... I love to read her blog everyday, it's hilarious! I mean that in a nice way, she writes in a way, how I think but don't say out loud. Really refreshing and super funny.

HOLY SMOKE

Bjorg Jewelry is my ultimate favorite of this moment. Their SS12 collection is really great. I wrote about the SS12 collection of Veronica B Vallenes here earlier. And now I know what it was that I really liked from this collection: the jewelry. She made a collaboration with Bjorg Jewelry for this show...... amazing.
The first picture is my favorite, this jewelry is amost like a sculpture on your body. All materials are 100 % natural and obtained in accordance to environmental preservation. There is a conceptual approach to all of her designs that encapsulates both previous and present collections as balancing acts between the fine and the raw.
Whether the specific inspiration comes from surrealism, Charles Darwin experiments or ancient myths, there is always a link through an industrial approach to conveying nature in a piece of jewellery. L O V E  L O V E  L O V E it!

Girls Say YES to boys who say NO


"Girls say yes to boys who say no"....I have no idea why I picked this tee;). I love ZOE KARSSEN. This Amsterdam based brand can best be described as T O N G U E  I N  C H E E C K styles for the girls downtown. I love it how they can present a brand that looks so simple in such a C O O L way. Their model indeed for sure has the SWAG. Their blog is also really H O T. I am really in the mood for this tee, just don't ask me why...

Ribbon in my hair

 
This will be my hair inspiration for today....I am really into high ponytales. Something that I didn't try yet, is wearing it with a ribbon. I am going to do that...Ok, this will actually be my whole face inspiration, love her eye shadow (shaWOW) and eyeliner. It is so fascinating how such an old picture can be so modern all of the sudden! Or at least that is what I see...

BED PEACE


Somehow I got lost in the pages of the SARTORIALIST......it is so inspiring to see what people wear on the streets. Suddenly I found this picture of a women that looks like if she is wearing her pijamas, but she is not. This line is so thin, but she definately pulled it of!
I have been wandering a lot about how to decorate my new apartment. But that is another topic....I really like the idea of wearing your pijamas on the streets. On some webshops it is even possible to personalise them with your own initials. This would be such a cool gift for christmas by the way. O F F C O U R S E  you have to wear it in the right way. But done right, it can look so effordless chic and relaxed (those are my favorite words). Here are some pics that are on my mind; John and Yoko rule this style if you ask me.
