FASHION WEEK FUN


           
28.01.2011
Amsterdam Fashion Week kicked of last wednesday. Yesterday I went to Bas Kosters' show and I loved it! It was more a party than a show really. Crazy clothes, great models (sort of androgynous boys and girls) and fantastic visual effects.

THIS IS HARDCORE

           
THIS IS HARDCORE
22.01.2011
Love Magazine is one of my all time favourite magazines. Everything they do is so cool and avant garde. Therefore I need to get my hands on their latest issue, issue 5, as fast as I can. The theme: transgender / This Is Hardcore.

MARANT GIRL

           
MARANT GIRL

An Isabel Marant girl doesn't wear a lot of make-up, in fact she doesn't even brush her hair. She wears flipflops, boots and heels in a relaxed way. Skinny jeans, leather, fur... But most of all slouchy t-shirts and cardigans with holes in them. Black, white, grey and hints of colour like pink and green. She might look a bit like Emmanuelle Alt or Isabel Marant herself. She's not fashionable, but stylish. I like that.

Here are some pieces of the Elin Kling for H&M collection. I want the leather jacket, the white trousers with the torn hem and the nude dress with metal back detail. Can someone tell me WHY we won't be able to buy the collection in Holland? What's the harm in a little online shop?

Wow, this is a fashion-blogger-dream-come-true. Elin Kling is presenting a capsule collection for H&M this February. Very cool and all, but... the pieces will only be available in Sweden. What's that all about??

When I think of a beautiful woman, I think of Guinevere van Seenus. She is just so unbelievably beautiful, it's almost otherworldly. Here she's featured in the Acne newspaper in 2008.

Aaah, ofcourse! Emmanuelle Alt will take over Carine Roitfelds place at Vogue France. What a great editor in chief she will make, particularly style wise. Or will she start to dress like a power woman now? No...

THE SARTORIALIST: THE MOVIE

           


08.01.2011
For years now I've been checking The Sartorialist at least a couple of times a week. It's funny to see the man behind the camera and mostly, hear him speak. Scott is very serious and semi intellectual here.
A year ago I met Garance Doré (Scott's now girlfriend) and she was so nice and sweet, I can't even begin to tell you. I think they're a fun couple.

TORN

I need to stop being so neat about my clothes. A few holes here and there, a ripped pair or tights... who cares? A torn up look is it right now.

TELL THEM TOM!

           
TELL THEM TOM!
04.01.2011
”I don’t get the need for this immediacy. In fact, I think it’s bad.
The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they’re online, the world sees them. They don’t get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They’re in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They’re overexposed, you’re tired of them, they’ve lost their freshness… In addition, all of the fast-fashion companies that do a great job, by the way, knock everything off. So it’s everywhere all over the streets in three months and by the time you get it to the store, what’s the point?
I’m holding everything back… The clothes are not going out to magazines before January issues. The clothes are not going to celebrities before December. The images are not being released online until December, when they’ll go online on my Web site.”
Tom Ford, 2011.



LEATHER KING

Check out this short film made by The Selby. Love the ironic last shot of the man cleaning up all the mess the leather king made...

SLOUCHY LEATHER

           
SLOUCHY LEATHER

I just adore these leather pants from Acne (bottom). I like the fact that they're not too skinny, but a little slouchy and comfortable. Because every time I've tried on a pair of skinny leather pants, the fit was terrible. And with a more loose fit, I think you can prevent this problem.
Elin Kling from Style by Kling sometimes wears a pair from Topshop (top), which I love even more. Can't find it anywhere on the internet though!

In 2011 I will never again have ice cold feet! I've ordered Sorel snow boots and can't wait for them to arrive.
Happy New Year!
