What makes love true

This short film for Tiffany edited by Garance Dore and her hubby Scott from the Sartorialist is so adorable. It makes me think of Valentines day already....I normally don't have anything with this day, but it is so sweet to see that love is in the air...

I have never put my love for velvet under the chairs or sofa's.....this is a literal translation from a Dutch saying. It just means that I really like VELVET. This skirt, seen at the Swedish Elle Gala is stunning! Just the right color and worn with a simple top. I think there is a "liking" coming up for plise skirts....just so you know...

Yesterday I went to see the exhibition: "Dream the world awake" from Walter van Beierendonck at the MOMU in Antwerp. This was a really explosive exhibition with looooooots of colors and prints. I will show you some more pictures later. These embroidered watches as bracelets are GRAND! If they would have been for sale, I would have loved a silver pair!

I just love this SS12 ready to wear show invitation from CHANEL. No I didn't recieve this myself, but anyhow, great pastels of this underwaterworld...

If you want to make me happy, show me a collection that consists of VELVET with this antique grey-ish undertone, the color Burgundy, well this is not Burgundy, it is more a wine reddish color and Black leather. This Pre-Fall collection of THE ROW, shows simple and basic styles in the most beautiful materials. It feels soft and strong at the same time. I would love to know who made these pictures. They almost look like these old fashioned "very wrong" portraits that you can make at your local photography shop in town, but there is a subtle difference.

My favorite piece somehow is the deep blue Burned out Velvet top. And is that a leather turtleneck, shown in the first pic!? AMAZING, with this casual jacket on top. A really inspiring color pallete if you ask me. Now I am going to listen to some velvet underground...

The Pre-Fall collection from REED KRAKOFF is just insane. I am so inspired by the long leather gloves worn with a plain grey melee Tee. This is a grey cashmere sweater is even more chic than a Tee. A really stunning look worn with the black Nappa ribbed black leather gloves. Also this Ivory Silk compact layered Top tones down the look, but is such a strong silouette at the same time. This Raisin/ Black modern chiffon layered top , shown on the third picture, worn with the gloves is for sure my color inspiration for this Fall. I am wondering were I can find such a color...
