More RTW Fall 2011 That have catched my eyes

I see something real there, or not? These looks represent something that I believe will become bigger. These prints of photo’s of buildings and landscapes, styled with other prints or in other colors. And more importantly, the whole garment exists out of this/these photo/photos. As if you are looking through a human-shaped window into another world. And with becoming bigger I meant that I imagine that this will be a look of the ‘future’. I have seen these kinds of looks before though, but this is something that people don’t dare to wear (yet) but I see it happing that when people get used to it, it could become a trend.

English Licorice

Christian Dior Fall 2011 Couture

This is like candy.. I found this new collection yesterday on on my iphone (which is btw íf you have an iPhone and you love runway-fashion á must-have!) and I immediately had to think of english licorice. I do not like english licorice at all, dutch licorice is so much better! (OldTimers is the best) but, it – the english ones – looks always so cute and fun! Now look.. ..

like I said, I would not wear this, it is not my style, BUT cute and fun and just like candy !!

Images from, collages by me


Mentioned in both Spring 2011 as Fall 2011 RTW collections. The combination of blues and petrols (greens or turquoises). Which I have not caught on another website as a color-trend alert yet either, even while it was so striking. I think it is a fresh combo. I have this turquoise silk mens blouse, hmm I wonder what blue items I will mix with..stay tuned!

Now first check out my selection of looks on the runway.

In stores now:

Soft glitter and silver

Inspired by fabrics

T by Alexander Wang

A couple of months ago I discovered these two jumpsuits (below) at my work (vintage store Zipper at Amsterdam) They spoke to me. I did not find them gorgeous or beautiful, they just did something with me and I knew I would use them for something good one day.

Some time later I found the two pictures above from fall 2011’s collection of T by Alexander Wang and they reminded me of my two jumpsuits which where by now hanging happily in my closet waiting for their right moment. These fabrics give exactly the same feeling and have the same look. Good pre-fall look for this summer!

Silver and Glitter Vintage Jumpsuit both from Zipper and Coral Pumps from Ash
Vintage Clip earrings from Marbles and Silver and Bloodcoral ring from Nepal

Odd combinations that strangely are a perfect match

You have to be a bit crazy, dare to step out the box, to come up with looks like this. I myself love it A lot! Here some inspiration of the runway. This collection showed both edgy and less extreme combinations.

To shop: this time vintage from Etsy stores

And try to think ‘cut and paste’ as in ‘cut and customize’ on these combinations.. You could make sick outfits! These are all random vintage finds so it does not have to be expensive.

Pick A Color

A striking look seen on RTW Fall 2011 collections, a one color outfit.
A fun look which not much people might wear in daily life, I have mentioned this look in previous collections, so it isn’t a new look on the runways, but it would be interesting if people dare to wear it from now on.

And there is more ..

So you would wonder, what made all these designers choose to use this color?
The fact that it is a color that hasn’t been used in this big amount?
The fact that it is a color that is a bit tricky, but great if styled good?

I know where it came from:

This Orange MADNESS went to Fashion baby!

Netherlands goes to finale


There is no getting away from!

The years 2000, we have now been trough 10 years of the new century. The thing that I find interesting is that specifically these 10 years, have been repeating the last 100 years in which fashion has been developing enormously, and did this in a vision of the ‘time of now’. The phenomenon vintage has bloomed into a style itself, a style of personal styles. An age in which more and more people have choices en possibilities to create their own personal style by combining all these styles together. There have been created new styles as well, with futuristic elements, from architectonic- to simplistic designs. And the combination of these too is what intrigues me really. As if it is some sort of buffer between the closure (and a renewal) of a time that has passed and the beginning of a new period in which the fashion will be changing even more crucial then most of us would expect now.

The period of 20 years ago, which so, can be seen as vintage now. And which lays far enough away from us to repeat it in a new vision, is of course the 90’s. There is no getting away from it. I find it quite logical, and even predictable, but also fun! The first years when the 90’s (which actually, brought us a lot of ugly-ty as well) died out, no body wants to even think about it anymore. Understandable, it has been enough. But then, after 20 years, the recognition feels great, and it gives us the “Riiiight!” and “Wow, do you remember these?” feeling. I like it. And also this Pre-Fall 2011 collection of Emanuel Ungaro. Amazing photos! So graphical and neat, so feminine slightly dull, but in a way that it still gets your attention. The 90’s, there is no getting away from it! Lets enjoy this last piece of repeating and renewal of the last years of the 21th century!

traveling in time

I have this thing with vintage suitcases. I have been shopping online vintage for quite some time, and spend hours and hours finding vintage treasures. Specially on days when I’m free, and that are sadly rainy and cloudy as it is today. I make myself some tea, get my laptop (while my siamese cat joins me on the couch) and start wandering around in online-vintage-shopping world. And I have ran into a lot of vintage cases as well. I have always adored them and they bring me to this dreamy world where I imagine myself in a neat 50s outfit traveling with a set of 3 (which I love the most: one big case, a smaller one and a beauty- or shoe-case) to the most beautiful places in the world. Obvious when I will do this in real life, I wouldn’t be wearing that I believe, but I just like the feeling and thoughts that they give me, a real classic hollywood feeling. I haven’t purchased one yet though, because I don’t think I would use it (for now). But I will find and get my own one day, and until that day I enjoy browsing through images such as these.

thE color:Rust fall2010

One of my favorite trend colors this season, Rust! It’s so warm, and yeah it is a stereotypical autumn color, but I don’t care. I adore the feeling that it gives me; warm, comfortable and (somewhat, because I still want to be able to visit the beach) ready for fall. Plus it matched my love for hippy and folklorish outfits.
