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.

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.

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.

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!

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,

Raf Simons after a long break!

Hi lovely people,

It’s been a long time since I made a new blogpost. But It was very busy for me lately. I had a lot of work for school and it was hard for me to find the time to work on my blog. But the good news is that I will try to work on my blog more often.

But after a long break it’s always great to promote some belgian talent. So I’m glad that I can tell you all that Fred Perry and Raf Simons are releasing their, already, 9th collection together.

The SS14 collection is stylish, sober and refined. Really typical for Raf Simons. The different patterns and nice colors are great too! The collection is designed in vibrant, fresh colours such as orange, white, Persian blue, pink and yellow.

One of my favorite pieces is the geometric twill Harrington jacket, a jacquard bomber jacket with a sparrow print and of course the Fred Perry Shirt, who makes its appearance with a variation of detachable collars.

 

The SS14 collection is for sale since February 27th 2014 in their different Fred Perry stores.

Much love,

Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day!

Hi everybody,

It’s been very busy lately and that’s why I didn’t wrote much on my blog! But today I thought it was time for a new blogpost! It is a bit rainy in Belgium for the moment so I’m really looking forward to go on holiday! Last year I went to Rome and I had such a lovely time there. This year my boyfriend and I are planning to discover Bucharest! I’m not sure what I can expect but I’m in for some adventure!

RomeI made a lot of picture last year in Rome, but I didn’t had the chance yet to share them with you guys. I made a short selection of picture I made when visiting this beautiful city! I would love to go back soon because the food is great and the people are really lovely. Take a look and enjoy!

“Playful Dream” – VOGUE

Hi lovely people,

I have to admit it, I love fashion and I love food. And what is better than combining these two? That is also exactly what Vogue Gioiello thought! In its fashion editorial titled ‘Playful Dream’ published in the May 2013 issue, Vogue Gioiello created a delicious bunch of LEGO-made dishes combined with luxurious jewelry from brands like Fendi and Gavello.

Playful DreamThese LEGO-made dishes aren’t only really beautiful, they also bring back a lot of childhood memories! The LEGO-menu includes a slice of pizza, a great looking burger with fries, spaghetti bolognese and delicious sushi! These pictures are styled by Enrica Ponzellini and shot by Fabrice Fouillet. It looks like their collaboration has an amazing result!

“Vintage per kilo”-vibe!

Dear people,

Vintage per kilo

Yesterday evening, my boyfriend and I made an impulsive trip from Limburg all the way to Brussels! The place where you can find chocolate and beer on every streetcorner! But we don’t went to Brussels to get drunk on beer or to gain 20 kilo by eating chocolate, no! We went to Brussels to check out the Brussels after work shopping and vintage market.

Vintage per kiloVintage per kiloGoing to the vintage market was great! It was the first time I had the chance to experience the whole “vintage per kilo“-vibe! I can assure you that it was hard finding clothes in that total madness but it was worth it! It was great seeing all these people, searching for the perfect piece to take it home and I love the idea of giving old clothes a second life! Here are some pictures of the items I bought!

S2H001W3 Fashion Show!

Hi everybody,

Finally my exams are over! But before I’m gonna relax and have some fun, I want to share my S2H001W3 experience with you all! My good friend Elise and I went to Antwerp last friday, to watch the fashion show by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp! We had so much fun together and we really enjoyed the lovely show!

Antwerp

AntwerpBeside of the fact that the Antwerp six were present as jury, we also saw many great talent at the catwalk. But there are two designers I really want to show to you! One of them is Mattia Vanseveren. Vanseveren is one of the 14 master students at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp! His collection “PLAY TIME” was clean and sophisticated! With a great use of colors and forms. I’m also in love with the shoes he designed, they were really wonderful! Beauty and quality are two words that go well together with this collection!

Play time

The other designer I want to put in the spotlight is Minju Kim with her “BE COVER”-collection. I instantly went in a happy mood by seeing this collection. The colors were so brightening and the pieces were really fun to see! There was no other choise then feeling the lovely Korean touch in this collection! The skirts, capes and jackets created with rubber ribbons were to cute for words! It doesn’t surprise me that she won the H&M Design Award! Watch her design collection for H&M here! In september, you can buy this special collection at H&M!
