Trash&Treasures XXL edition garage sale extraordinaire

The best place to shop? We say Brick Lane in London! One of our favorite spots to buy vintage treasures! So we love the idea of a Trash&Treasures event during Amsterdam Fashion Week, inspired on the popular garage sales you see in London. Especially when the event is mixed with live music, Bols cocktails and some hot bloggers. Like the Digitalista’s for example! Continue reading

We love: Valtifest and Ray-ban

In summer, there are two things we love: Ray-ban (wayfarer, pilot and the new Rare (!)) and Valtifest (one of the best festivals in Holland during the summer). This year the two come together for a spectacular music battle. Are you great with a trombone? Or is your voice better than Madonna’s? Upload a small movie on www.ray-ban.com/nl and maybe they’ll pick you as one of the eight best music talents. The eight finalists have to battle which each other on Valtifest on the 4th of September. We will be there for sure, so sing for us! PS. Dress up like an cool idiot, because that is what Valtifest is about!

Dutch design for Barbie

Barbie loves Bas Kosters....and so do we!

After her own show during New York Fashion Week last year, Barbie took the plane and came to Holland for a new show with some of her Dutch designer friends.

New Amsterdam based EASTPAK Icon store. For the cool kids.

My first memories of EASTPAK, brings me back to high school. Everybody had an EASTPAK! Not as spectacular looking as they do now, but oké (well in fact, my friend had a pink one…Yes, in our village, a pink bag was very rare). We pimped our bags, by putting personal notes on it. Think signatures of friends, kisses from the boy you had an eye on, etc. Nowadays, the EASTPAK collection is so diverse, that you don’t have to spice it up with a big, black pen anymore. No, young, talented designers clear the job for you! It’s nice to see, that a brand with just one main-product, stays up-and-running for years and years. I know for sure, that if I go back to my old high school, the kids will still carry an EASTPAK. If not? Tip: just visit the new Amsterdam based EASTPAK Icon store on Hartenstraat 23.  For Cool Kids Only! Continue reading
