DIFFERENT DNA.

LEATHER JACKET - ASOS / RED OVERSIZED SHIRT - VINTAGE / LEVI'S SHORTS - VINTAGE / BLACK WEDGES - TOPSHOP / CROSS NECKLACE - NO BRAND / HEADBAND - DIY
It might not really show off on these pictures, but this red shirt is fabulous! The colour, the fit, the details... certainly one of my favourite items. Actually most of my best finds are vintage, although I hate the smell of vintage stores and well most of the time going through the racks and piles of clothes disgusts me, I always find great treasures and I leave with a very satisfied feeling.

AIFW || FINAL RECAP.

Here is my final AIFW post after going through more than 1500 pictures.
INDIVIDUALS - NATURE'S CHILD A show filled with designs by students from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute.

GENERATION 12 - IROTSUYA by HANNA SIWECKI Hanna is one of the graduates from Artez who showed her collection -called 'Network'- at AIFW during the Generation 12 show. Although I usually hate orange coloured items, this look is just perfect. Another aspect I really like in this collection is the use of plexiglass parts.

GENERATION 12 - YONA VAN MANSFELD showed her ‘Elusive clashing’ collection, which is based on contrasting elements: colour contrasts and a clash between modern and ornamented fashion.

FRANS MOLENAAR PRIJS 2011 - ANNE BOSMAN was inspired by emperors and kings, as well as baby clothes.

FRANS MOLENAAR PRIJS 2011 - MARIUS OP 'T EYNDE was inspired by cycling and the control of body and mind. Marius' collection was definitely my favourite, a collection with many futuristic & graphic prints. Simple classic, but surprisingly modern.


FRANS MOLENAAR PRIJS 2011 - MAGNUS DEKKER the winner of the Frans Molenaar award; 10.000 euro which he can use to further develop as an independent designer. Magnus’ collection was all about contradictions, inspired by hysterical soccer fans and the flags of their country. He showed colourful, voluminous designs with several flag prints. This navajo inspired look is my favourite, I love the entire look!

SAGE & IVY  one of the highlights during AIFW. Alexia van Engelen showed her by water inspired collection called hemisphere ON water! Since they built a catwalk under water, it was like the models were walking on water. The feminine collection, the water, the sun, the models and the music created the perfect picture together... Goosebumps all over!

AIFW || HUNKEMÖLLER.



One of the greatest shows to attend during AIFW was definitely the 'Brazilian Summer flavours' show from Hunkemöller. Sexy & flirty girls showing the new Spring/Summer 2012 collection in a double show; seductive lingerie and exotic beachwear. Everything was just right; the collection, the performing & the looks of the models and the final with Kim Feenstra during Beyonce's "Run the World" song. Not to mention the music and atmosphere during the show, I just wanted get off my ass and dance. I also added a video to give you guys a better impression and you can also see me sitting frontrow with and thanks to Debbie at 1.25!

DIY || BANGLES.

BANGLES - DIY || GREY JUMPER - TOPSHOP || JEANS - TRUTH OR DARE
I was about to throw away some ugly ass bangles when I thought I could also renew them very easily! I just took some leather and jeans rest fabrics, cut them in strings and wrapped them around the bangles. I only glued the beginning and end of the strings so I can easily remove them when I want to use some other fabrics. Et Voilà, I have some 'new' bangles without spending a dime!

SKINS.

LIGHT PINK BLAZER - BANANA REPUBLIC VTG || WHITE TEE - H&M DIVIDED || SNAKE PRINT LEGGINGS - ONLY || POINTY HEELS - ZARA || CHOKER & SNAKE RING - NO BRAND
This is the outfit that I wore on the first day of AIFW, a day that didn't start very well... I had like 10 minutes to choose an outfit because of the shitty weather ruining my plans, I cut my shirt, missed my train, my hair got ruined by rain & wind. ugh. Fortunately I was still on time since fashion shows NEVER start on time!
As I was slithering my way to & through Amsterdam I noticed some people were looking at my leggings like they saw an actual snake haha. Although probably a lot of people won't dig this trend, I think snakeskin prints are the new leopard prints. So you better get used to it! Kiddin'! Will you be sporting this trend?

Very.co.uk, one of the top online fashion retailers also have a nice range of summer dresses from many new fashion brands. In addition to women's fashion, there is also a section for menswear which includes top brand clothing such as Diesel jeans and Fred Perry shirts as well as mens  fashion trainers.
