Mary Katrantzou For Topshop

Designer Mary Katrantzou launched her third collection for Topshop and when I saw these photos I am very excited about it. Take a look at some preview photos from this collection. Each item has the signature from Katrantzou like prints and the silhouettes. One of my favorite is the dress. I really love the print on it and it has an unique look.

I love that the outfits are fading away in the background.

Hopeful Blue

The HOPE design team feels playful and enlightened this season. The starting point of the collection is the colour Blue, symbolising freedom, serenity and the Nordic light. I like the color blue, because it gives a fresh look. You see sporty suit styles in the spirit of the 90’s and traditional folklore weavings are interlaced with a bohemian 70’s state of mind.

Weekly Journal

Spring is coming, the temperature is rising, the sun is shining, people are happier. I love it. Spring is my favorite season of the year. Just like last week I was busy with my thesis and worked a lot. Besides that I bought two amazing shirts. One from Maison Scotch, this one I was craving for every since I saw it in their lookbook. And the other one is from the Zara. I love the print of it and it feels very thin and graceful.

This week I will enjoy my last week being 21 years old.

Study material for my thesis.

Beautiful Monday morning.

These black pumps are one of my favorite shoes. You can wear them with almost every outfit.

Love the sunset.

One of my shoes from Miu Miu. Love the brand and the unique items that they sell.

My new iPhone4 case from Frenchonista. Thanks Samia.

I love the app Instagram. I think it is the app (besides Facebook and Twitter) that I use the most. Last week I reach the 200 followers. Do you already follow me?

Reading books for my thesis. I love reading, so it is not a problem at all.

My new shirt from the Zara. Love the print.

Say cheese :) Maison Scotch always has lovely necklaces attached to their clothes.

This is a detail from my new Maison Scotch shirt. I love the betron stripes and the colors. I think I will wear this shirt very often coming spring.

Till next week.
With love, Manon.

Different Kind Of Bags

In June 2012 Ilvy Jacobs graduated on the Artez in Arnhem for the study Product Design. Designing bags is her specialization. For her graduation collection she refering to the bag as a packing function. Because of that Ilvy started to investigate ways to create a longer duration through a form and material addition.

Below you see two of her bags. I love it, especially the doctor's bag.

COS Campaign Spring/Summer 2012

Since COS also has their own store in Amsterdam I come here quite often. The quality of the products is amazing and I love the unique items that they sell. They really have a great eye for details and finish. I saw these campaign photos and I just had to share it with you. In the photos you see the details of the clothes very good. What is your opinion about this campaign? Can’t wait to visit COS again in Amsterdam.

Looks From Humanoid

I have a confession to make, I love luxury clothing items. Like you may I am still a student, so I have not much money to spend on clothes monthly. But I think that when you buy less stuff from H&M for example and more items that are from a better quality you make an invesment.

There is one store in my study city (and favorite cities to shop in The Netherlands) called Humanoid. This is an amazing store full of luxury items. I can walk around in this store for hours and still not be bored.

Today I want to share their new looks for coming spring/summer. Sorry for the overload of photos, but it was hard to make a choose from all the beautiful looks. You can also take a look at the webshop from Humanoid.

With a mix of opposites this collection shows a perfect balance between different aspects and the perfect answer to the need of every women.

McQ Fall 2012 Line

When I was in New York City last summer I visit the exhibition of Alexander McQueen. Ever since I am interested in fashion I love the designs of McQueen. On Monday the new collection from McQ was refiled. Gorgeous collection, beautiful carpet and I have to say that Sarah the name of Lee maintains.

A carpet of brown autumn leaves, a hut in the middle of the forest with blaring techno music and a supermodel in an ivory ball gown giving out drinks.

Th collection was for women and men too. But today I want to tell you something about the women collection. This collection majored on a classic McQueen silhouette. The nipped-waist, military coats and jackets, full-skirted outline, and embossed leather. A bustier hilt-dress over a black lace shirt, that is something only McQueen can do.

As the show finished, the last model pulled a rope up underneath the fallen leaves and her way back to the hut in the middle of the scene. Love the concept, the clothes and everything about this collection.
