What a mess.

On a boring saturday, in my messy room.


Queen of Knits pour H&M

November 28, 2009

A while ago I read on Wikipedia that Sonia Rykiel was the next designer after JC that will be designing for H&M: Sonia Rykiel pour H&M. She’s a great designer and I personally think H&M should be proud to have such a great designer as her designing for their company (And I’m sure they are very, very grateful.) I totally forgot about the whole Sonia Rykiel for H&M thing and when I was reading the dutch ELLE today I came by ads for this collection. So this news isn’t that recent anymore, but I’m still going to write a post about it. The collection consists of ladies underwear. The prices are really reasonable. I’m not a fan of everything in the collection, but a little diversity is always good right? And that’s exactly what she did, but still she managed to make a collection instead of garments that don’t have a connection at all. The collection will launch on December 5 and will be available in 1500 H&M stores all over the world. Not only in the H&M stores but for the first time for H&M the collection will be in the Sonia Rykiel stores too. This is not the only collection she will design for H&M in 2010 she will design a knitwear collection (ofcourse, this is where she’s famous for) plus an accessory collection on 20 February.

A must-have item this fall is the biker jacket. And I picked my favorites with a little explanation why I choose that particular jacket. You can click on the pictures to see them in full size.

Picture: http://style.com This is my absolute favorite. But it’s really the overall outfit that does it for me. The model plus the jewelry makes it look so chic. The jacket is from Blumarine.

And then there’s this amazing biker jacket by Diesel. The gradient effect in the shape of smoky swirls plus the black and gray in the jacket make it look so mysterious.

This jacket from Julien Macdonald has an military edge to it, yet it still manages to stay chic. The things on the shoulders are kind of abstract which is why really love this jacket. The shape of the jacket  itself is so minimalistic but the ‘spikes’ on the shoulders gives the garment that extra boost. You shouldn’t wear this jacket when your broad-shouldered though. But I think that speaks for itself.

This vintage jacket from the 80’s was on the website of Nasty Gal. The oversized tuxedo lapels look amazing in combination with the black leather and the gold buttons.

You can buy this jacket for 248 dollars on nasty gal.

When Autumn comes

November 26, 2009

Their ready-to-wear collection for Autumn 2009 isn’t that new at all but since it’s freezing right now I decided to do a post about this season’s clothing. And since there’s still 50 percent of Dutch blood flowing trough my veins I thought it should be about Viktor & Rolf. In their ready-to- wear collection for the Fall 2009 have those neutral colors that can be seen on almost every runway this season. But we’re still talking about Viktor & Rolf and who are they when they don’t add a little crazy touch to them. I see alot of geometric shapes that come in small details but also draped garments and neutrals (as I’ve said before in this post). Personally I think the main focus in these garments is in the overall shape of them. The details look magnificent, big bold and beautiful mixed with minimalism. The Greek sculptures that were on the runway kind of showed were they got their inspiration from.

While I’m sitting by the sides in gymnastics because my foot is sore. I decided I should post a pic of sweaty kids.

Dove of Style

November 20, 2009

Fierce Stone cold sober, New York and her latest single Do You Want The Truth or Something Beautiful (same title as her album) are songs I love, and could listen to 24 hours a day. I’m talking about Paloma Faith . She’s an English singer and actress, was born in London and her voice got compared with Etta James’ on Jools Holland. But that’s not all, she’s also becoming a favorite in the world of fashion and is (in my opinion) a real fashion icon already! Her style is influenced by the 50’s and most of the time she can be seen wearing vintage clothing. She’s in one word unique, her look and her voice. She’s half English and half spanish, which explains her spanish name: Paloma which means dove. This also explains the dove tattoo on her shoulder (which looks amazing in the New York music video) and the two doves on her album cover.

On the last picture she’s working a creation of Ashish Gupta.

Her album: ‘Do you want the truth or something beautiful?’ Has been in the stores for a while, but if you don’t have it already: Don’t hesitate and buy your own!

This made my day

November 19, 2009

Gosh, after school I went home preparing myself to leave again within five minutes to shit, pack my bag and leave for the tube. I’m on my way to Pal Maas to finish the latest pieces of clothing (with some other teens) for the fashion show Saturday. When I get there, around 12:00 midday I see all the lights are off. Kind of embaressed I (incognito) try to open the door and show no reaction on my face when the door doesn’t open. I want to scream but decide to sit down for five minutes and the ugliest part of Rotterdam. I want to die and make some calls. Okay, this is nice. Turns out it starts around two. I get back to the tube to visit my favorite coffee shop in Rotterdam, grab a medium latte and visit the H&M. But before I get to tube I see a creepy man staring at me. I walk faster but he gets there before I can cross the street. He follows me and again I want to scream and die. Then he tries to talk to me, listenig to music I pretend I do not hear him. He keeps following me, luckily the tube is there when I run up the station and leave that filthy place. Now I’m still in the Coffee Company and it’s loaded in here. I still want to die because I have to return to that creepy place within two hours.

Already seen the new series on FOX? Glee is about a Spanish teacher who tries to reform the Glee Club to it’s former glory. Emma Pillsbury is a teacher on the same school, she has enormous eyes, a sweet personality and is a mysophobic. After watching the first six episodes I couldn’t help it to see some similarities between Emma Pillsbury and Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl). Although Emma isn’t about the brands, since the whole Glee series isn’t about fashion or the upper east side of Manhattan there were just a few things that reminded me of Blair, the girl she was in the 1st season of Gossip Girl. And no, I’m not suggesting that Glee copied the whole Blair look. I just wanted to tell ya’ll.

Glee’s first season airs on Wednesdays 9/8 C on FOX .

Gossip Girl’s third season airs on Mondays 9/8 C on the CW.

Put a ribbon on this, this year.
