New Love: Zinga

During the Modefabriek I was walking around hoping for a nice brand new to discover. I saw the clothes of the brand Zinga and I fall in love. The fabrics are amazing just as the shape of the clothes.

The comfort of the clothes is so good that it feels like a second skin. The lightweight fabrics allows you to layer without giving it a huge effect. The clothes hold their shape. Different materials are mixed: cashmere with leather for example.

When I saw the new collection for the winter I just fall in love. I am in love with their cardigans and leggings. Hopefully I can add some of the pieces to my wardrobe. Below you see a preview of the winter 2012-2013 collection, but also some items for their summer collection. I will keep you updated about this lovely brand.

Weekly Journal

I had a great week! Some things that I have done: I went to the Modefabriek, two of my friends have passed their degree, I had two lovely days in Amsterdam with my best friend, went to the openingshow from Sjaak Hullekes during Fashion week, had fun bowling with some friends and enjoyed my free time. Today is my first day of my graduation. I am so excited about it, because I can't wait until I got my degree. From now on I will work 6 days a week and blog as much as I can. I think it will be a hard time, but when I do things that I enjoy it also gives me energy. Take a look below to see what I have done this week. I am glad that I enjoyed my time with my friends and fashion. Hope you like the photos that I made this week!

AFW: Sjaak Hullekes

I had the honor the enter the show of Sjaak Hullekes during the opening of the Amsterdam Fashion week last Wednesday. Thank you Sjaak for inviting me for your show, I had an amazing time!

Sjaak opened the Fashion week and also presented his new underwear collection. Besides this collection he also shows his fall/winter 2012-2013 collection with both loose fitting and slim cut items in different layers were placed in the outfits. The idea behid the collection is the essence of our life, namely the elements, treasures and resources of our planet.

The result was a total collection of shoes, hats, scarves, gloves and overcoats in which the retro styles, bohemian dandy and richly represented.

Pretty collection with items that I want to add to my closet even though it was a menswear.

Inspiration Look

Simple and clean, a style that is close to mine. I love playing with a statement item in my outfit. And I have to admit that most of the time I wear white, black and grey. Because when you add a statement piece, like a necklace, neon color blazer, unique shoes or an oversized bag your outfit has a message. When I saw this outfit I really loved it, because it is an outfit that I can wear too!

Sisterhood By Jil Sander

Raf Simons draws inspiration from elite college life with Jil Sander’s pre-fall 2012 collection. The photographer Ben Weller captures models like Hanne Gaby Odiele, Karolina Mrozkova, Tilda Lindstam, Katya Konstantinova, Katie Fogarty and others in a room setting where they study, chat and have fun. The collection has all the trappings of an ivy league wardrobe with cardigans, sweaters, skirts and lush coats. I have to say that I find this setting cool and unique, because it shows the daily life.

Stephanie Baechler

The Swedish Stephanie Baechler follows a Fashion Master at the ArtEZ in the Netherlands. Her portfolio contains photos, drawings and fashiondesigns. From her interest in mass production of clothing and their consumption, the idea was to design clothes from existing materials. It seems not innovative, but the idea from Stephanie really is innovative. For a project she used curtains, plastic bags, packaging and various types of dust, on a very special way these are combined. This picture she has recorded and printed on new substances, with this she designed new clothes.
I really like the conceptand designs!
