Amsterdam International Fashion Week: Lichting 2011 Lotte Mostert

After all the sad news, it's time for a good start. What's a better start than with a young, new designer? I know the answer: nothing! Let me introduce you Lotte Mostert. It's not that she's completely unknown, but defenietly one to watch.
What did she do already? What do you think about a internships at Haider Ackermann and Veronique Branquinho? And she was the best bachelor of 2011 of The Netherlands.
And now she made her debut at Amsterdam International Fashion Week with her collection That Makes The Inside Cover by the Lichting 2011 show, where the best academy graduates of 1 year show their collections. Lotte graduated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague.

Breaking News: The dead of Amy Winehouse

Today the world lost an incredible talent. She was well known for her signature hair and amazing voice. One of a kind. But I think it was just a matter of time until this day came for Amy Winehouse. At a young age of 27 she lost the battle with drugs and alcohol. Now it's our time to go back to black.

Scene On The Street

Fall fashion showed by two of my favorite young models with the lovely lips, Lindsey Wixson and Daphne Groeneveld.
Wearing designers like Proenza Schouler, Jil Sander, Miu Miu, Michael Kors, YSL, Prada, Givenchy and many many more on famous New York streets such as Fifth Avenue. Uptown meets downtown. That are a nice set of snapshots if you ask me! What's your opinion?

Amsterdam International Fashion Week: SIS by Spijkers & Spijkers

The sisters Spijkers had the honor to start Fashion Week with their second line SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers. They showed a collection called Bain du Soleil inspired by seaside visitors on the French coast and swimmers in the twenties with Marie Braun (Dutch first Olympic swimming champion) as their muse. I always love their simple and easy-to-wear clothes with graphic prints, zigzag patterns and stripes, and beautiful colors, like mintgreen, light pink, night blue and rusty orange. They used light and airy materials for an casual silhouette. The collection represents independence, passion and lifestyle and I like that!
Lovely, floral bathing caps
And of course...

Amsterdam International Fashion Week: Pauline van Dongen

Amsterdam International Fashion Week (AIFW) has kicked off, yesterday to be precise. And I want to introduce you Pauline van Dongen. She showed us innovative shapes and techniques with her collection Kinetic Landscapes. But despite that the clothes are still wearable. This show made me really excited about her work! What about you?

We can still dream about couture, right? The craftmanship, the details, the fabrics and so on. But it can not be otherwise with all those dreams on the catwalk. Just look at those gorgeous long and flowing capes by Giambattista Valli and Valentino! *sigh*
