TRYING OUT THE SAMSUNG SMART
Ow wow !! It's been a while ago since I posted something on my blog for the last time. Alot of things happened the past few months, reason why my blog became a little much abandoned. I'm truly, truly sorry for letting you all down but things are slowly changing. In my non-blogging days I walked into this smart camera by Samsung and lucky enough I had the chance to try it out. I have to tell you that I was looking for a new camera though so this camera came right on time. since the day I started my blog I was using a big mirror reflection camera, the quality is super but the only problem was that strolling around cariing this heavy camera was quite tiring. I think I'm not the only blogger with this problem. with the Samsung smart camera traveling around it much easier because of the compact and small shape. But what about the quality of the pictures. It was time to try it out. In collab. with Super sophisticated and a friend we organised a shoot and I was stunned by the results. More coming soon but for now I leave you all behind with this sneek peek picture above.

PAUW IN A JEANS
pauw-men-menstore-amsterdam-pauwbv-kaiiwong-opening
Dutch men are fashion too and that’s more than clear when I had the opportunity to have a sneak peek in the new men store of Pauw Amsterdam. Pauw who’s known for their formal / sleek approach decided it was time to focus on the new generation and we are more than proud with that. Luxury in a new jacket combined with a good pair of denim is the way I would describe the style of the store if you ask me. Besides one of Amsterdam’s finest jeans maker brands called Denham, Pauw also sells Filling Pieces, Arc'Teryx Veilance, Adriano Goldschmied, Golden Goose Deluxe and many other brands. A great addiction when it comes to menswear. Soon there is more to see about this shop on my blog. Cant wait ?? Do not hesitate to visit this store at the van Baerlestraat 88-90 Amsterdam here

VOGUE | THE BIRTH OF A QUEEN
Fairy tales do exist and even if it lasts no longer than two days you still remember it ever after. You might wondering where I'm talking about. It started with a prince Willem Alexander and a beautiful princess Maxima who became king and queen after the previous queen abdicated the throne. The people of the Netherlands were full of joy and so was I when I received an invitation from Vogue to attend their organised Queens Ball in the heart of Amsterdam. Everyone was looking beautiful from head to toe. Women in Jan Taminiau and Claes Iversen and men in their tailored suits. At that moment Hotel The Grand was the place where all the royal magic happened. The champagne was flowing heavily and through all the joy and laughter the new issue of Vogue appeared. In this special edition of Vogue Netherlands Karin Swerink (Editor in Chief of Vogue NL) and team focuses on the life of our Queen Maxima before and after taking over the throne. A story of a princess, fashion icon and now Queen of the Netherlands told in fashionable way. A must see. Curious about the Queens ball night ?? don't hesitate to check out my Instagram and Twitter page.

Yesterday was the launch of the shop in shop of Avelon at SPRMRKT and without a doubt I was there to browse through the wonderful S/S 2013 collection presented by the Designer himself and team. In company of a glass of wine and sweet macarons I made my way through the self-designed installation by the designer and I must say that I am totally inspired what I'm gonna wear for upcoming season. So I spotted some T-shirts with edgy prints and denim pants mixed with leather details and oh yeah, forgot to tell you that besides the main collection Avelon also sell some unprecedented and one of a kind pieces. Curious to know where I'm talking about. Go and take a look at

AVELON POP-UP STORE SPRMRKT

AVELON + SPRMRKT
And just before I couldn't wait any longer it happens. After Rotterdam, Dutch brand Avelon will launch their Pop-up store in one of Amsterdam's nicest multi-brand stores SPRMRKT and of course I'm there to celebrate that since I am a big fan of this brand. This all happened when I bought my first Avelon piece a few years ago. What I love about the brand is what Erik calls the "understated design". Even though his designs look discreet at first sight, you will find more and more details when observing it. Fashion for the eye but wearable without being over the top. Surely keep an eye on my blog to read the post of the upcoming launch. I'm looking forward !! See the site of Avelon right Here

MEET VIVE L'HOMME
vive-l-homme-timothy-wattimena-ssdsusudio-susudio-prjctams-amsterdam-menswear-kaiiwong
With proud I represent to you Vive L' Homme. A new menswear brand based and founded in Amsterdam. Spotting this brand during Modefabriek I had a short talk with founder Timothy Wattimena who explained his cool brand to me. Vive L'Homme translated in English "Long Live the Man" targets on T-shirts. You are probably think, "What's new about starting up a T-shirt brand ??" but let me tell you the shirts of Vive L'Homme are different. Creating T-shirts out of rich materials and fabrics like cashmere, bamboo and silk the brand represents another level when it comes to T-shirts. Simplicity meets luxury and design at Vive L'Homme. Rumor has it there will be a store located in Amsterdam but for now let's all keep an eye on this brand. Follow this upcoming brand on twitter here or their Facebook page here
