Summer, summer, summertime!

Coral Flamingo watch from Triwa Miami Deco collection

Since the moment Triwa Watches were introduced in the Netherland, they’re one big hit! Every self-respected fashionista loves the pretty colors, the childish plastic bracelet often mixed with an little ‘ordinary’ golden time plate.  The prices are really oké, so it’s not that you have to save for months or even years! No, you can just go to the store, see all the candy and pick one, or two, or three. Every season Triwa comes up with some new colors, prints and inspirations. This time it’s Miami, baby! Digitalista. M. immediately fell in love with the one named ‘Coral Flamingo’! “Because this watch matches perfect with her favorite lipstick for this summer Chanel Rouge Allure Génial….”, she said. Yes, Coral-like as well. We even think she found her ‘new it-color’!

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. And because Barbie is our friend too (which girl didn’t’ play with her for hours and hours when she was little), we are still fascinated by her amazing wardrobe. Continue reading

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

Digitalistic tunes: energetic Matt & Kim from Brooklyn

Mat & Kimm at Hilfiger Denim Live

Last week at the very cool Hilfiger Denim Live party in Paradiso Amsterdam, I spotted Matt & Kim (a music-duo from Brooklyn) for the first time. I immediately fell in love with those guys. They rocked the club with their energy-filled performance like nobody else did! Especially Kim drew my attention. This small girl on drums, hit her drumsticks like another day would never come. And the best was, she had an amazing smile on her face all night long! She and her friend Matt had so much fun on stage that me and my friends went crazy on the dance floor. I liked it so much! To get in the right mood this morning, hereby one of their songs; Daylight.  Watch, listen en then fall in love…

Designed by a well-known name: Paloma Picasso, daughter of the world famous Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. Continue reading
