A meatball a day!

Hi lovely people,

Dorien and I were in Antwerp last week, to visit the different PR agencies were we could discover the new trends and brands for next fall and winter. After that long day we really needed some food to restore our powers! And what is a better place in Antwerp to enjoy a lovely meal then Balls & Glory?

ballsgloryII.jp_-e1381151828684Balls & Glory is located at De markt in FelixPakhuis, close to the MAS. We can sure say that this is a lovely location. Not only the exterior is pretty, but also the interior is lovely. The long wooden tables filled with grapes in a bowl, a bottle of water and napkins are really cozy looking. The nice reading corner is a lovely place to sit back, relax and enjoy a good lemonade. Another good thing to know is that Wim Ballieu, owner of Balls & Glory, also recently won a Golden Palm for this innovative restaurant concept.

Make sure you definitely try out one of their delicious meatballs the next time you’re in Antwerp, Bruges or Ghent. Because: ‘a meatball a day, keeps the doctor away’! Take a look on their site to check out the right address and opening hours. Big thumbs up for Wim, and I hope one day he would like to seduce Hasselt with his great Balls & Glory-conceptFW 14-008

Herschel Supply CO. FW 14/15

Hi lovely people,

Another brand I laid my eyes on during the press days was Herschel.
I was already aware of this brand before the press days, but after seeing their fall and winter collection for 2014/2015 I even felt more in love with the brand.

Here is some information for those who don’t know the brand Herschel. Herschel Supply Co. is a brand that manufactures fine quality backpacks, bags, travel goods and accessories. The company was founded in 2009 by the brothers Jamie and Lyndon Cormack. The 2 brothers adopted the name of the small town where three generations of their family grew up and so Herschel Supply Co. was born.

Herschel Supply Co. is now based in Vancouver, Canada and manufactures timeless products with a fine regard of detail. Hershel supply co. is a true modern brand with a nice touch of heritage.

FW 14-004I’m madly in love with this brand because of their vintage touch. Their use of fabrics, prints and colors make these backpacks look so fresh, timeless and lovely at the same time. I can’t wait to buy me one soon! Here are already some of my FW ’14/’15 favorite backpacks and accessories. For more bags and accessories of Herschel Supply CO. you can take a look here.

H3500

Dear people,

I’m finally back after my two weeks of vacation. And as you all know, I’m always up for new and inspiring concepts. That’s why I want to introduce you all to H3500.

 

H3500

Our home is a translation of our personality. We want to show people the way we live or want to live. We want to share the feeling of our home to the world. Not many people know that this kind of communication starts with our house number. That is why I want to share this wonderful H3500 project with you all!

Studio Hectica had the great idea to change the boring house numbers, in vibrant and attractive graphic pieces. That’s why they create a personal house number, that perfectly fits your way of living. They also make sure they use materials and techniques specially chosen for your house number. This with the right typeface and a new personal house number is born.

Delicious Modern Art

Hi lovely people,

Art was, is and will always be a very good way to communicate with people all over the world. Sometimes art is an answer to problems or a gateway to another world. But most of all, art is there to love and enjoy!

Rineke Dijkstra

Another thing that there is to love and enjoy, is food. Bring these two together and something wonderful happens. That’s exactly what Caitlin Williams Freeman thought! Caitlin is a lovely lady who works in The Blue Bottom café in San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art. She and her team sells wonderful pastries, based on art.

Enjoy but watch out, you might get hungry !

Birds of Paradise!

Hi lovely people,

Yesterday I had the chance to discover the new exhibition in the Fashion Museum of Antwerp with a few fellow bloggers. We had a great evening, talking to each other and taking a look at this wonderful exhibition for the first time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The exhibition “Birds of Paradise” is an ode to the plumes and feathers in fashion. Plumes and feathers have always been a sign of beauty and preciousness. Like by princesses and queens to express their femininity by using feathered folding fans when going to a ball.

Kate McCgwire

For designers, it’s always been interesting to use the feather as a sign of freedom and lightness. Thierry Mugler used these feathers to create his own “bird woman”, a silhouette with the form of a butterfly.

Thierry Mugler

Alexander McQueen is also one of the designers whose work is shown at the exhibition. With his own interpretation of the swan Lake, a design based on the duality between the white, good, swan and the black, bad, swan!

Dress MoMu

I was impressed by the different silhouettes and the lovely scenography of the exhibition by Bob Verhelst. I also want to thank Belmodo and MoMu Antwerp for this lovely evening.

It’s still possible to visit the exhibition till the 24th of August.

Much love,

xoxo
