I’d love to introduce you to Bandelier, recently discovered them online. It’s a leather accessories brand from Los Angeles, California. I love the nomad kind of style from the lookbook and the accessories look amazing. Simple colors, simple style, beautiful. For sale only on Mohawk.
I met my friend Hannah in Copenhagen while we worked on a dress for Pernille Rosendahl at Stine Goya together. And I am so very proud and excited to have her here with me in New York City where she is modelling with The Lions. Watch out for this girl!
I knew it!!! I’ve been a secret(but not so secret, everybody knows) fan of Kim Kardashian for quite a while now. The TV shows are my ultimate relaxing moments. I love the Kardashian sisters and I knew that when she started dating Kanye, she was gonna become Fashion cult. Kim on the cover of Carine Roitfeld’s (my role-model) CR Fashion Book was the confirmation. I’m glad Carine also saw the beauty in this fascinating reality show icon. Love it!
After an amazing time in Copenhagen at Stine Goya, a summer with friends in Amsterdam and France, I am on the move again. But this time I think I’ll stick around.. I just moved to NYC where I’ll work as a Design Trainee with The Row, I still can’t fully realise it. To me it’s the city with the most inspiring people, the exciting start of my career and a place I’ve wanted to call home for too many years. No more wanderlust.
*Newsflash* As of last Monday I am the new Design Trainee with The Row in New York City. I just had my first week at the studio and I am so excited to be part of this amazing company for the next six months. I knew The Row had high standards when it comes to textiles but am amazed by the incredible quality of all the fabrics, especially now I get to touch them, see them up close and get to work with them.
I fell in love with these hydro vase boxes from [ 10¹² ] Terra. The name of the brand “[ 10¹² ] TERRA” was inspired by the number of cells produced per day (10¹²) and glass cases called terrarium, made for collecting and showcasing plants. They’re all handmade and I think they’re really cute. I do wonder how long a plant will survive like this (with me, I try, but some plants just don’t make it). But they look amazing and I would love to get one, but I don’t think they ship abroad… The brand is Japanese and it’s started up and designed by Daisuke Tsumanuma & Kenichi Yamada. Love it.
Last Wednesday I finally went to the M°BA 13 Expo in Arnhem. Loads and loads of inspiring looks and definitely worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood. These were my three favorites pieces by Emma Eddy Anderson and Sabina Bryntesson. There’s something about these three looks that I can’t stop looking at them.. This room was like walking into my Friday • Inspiration Post but better!
The M°BA 13 Expo last until tomorrow! (Sunday 21st of July)
Me and my friends, Pina and Yaiza, were invited to a Jeu des Boules tournament organized by NATWERK in Amsterdam. We hesitated at first but decided we would join in on the fun. Little did we know that we’d be playing Jeu de Boule all day and ended up in the Finals! Unfortunately we lost to the amazing ‘Zissou’-team.
This has been one of the most fun and random Sunday’s in Amsterdam. We met loads of great people, had an amazing luch by BUSKRUID, got up on that stage with our ‘de-net-niet-beste/2nd place‘-trophy and sprayed the traditional champagne. Many thanks to NATWERK for a ballin’ Sunday and the Golden Jeu de Boules Set we got to take home!
Get your own set of Golden Jeu de Boules by NATWERK here.
P.S: At one point a group of French tourist walked by and stopped in total awe of this event and all the french stereotypes haha.

Exciting news to share with you all; I wrote a piece for TEDxAmsterdam about 3D Printing and its potential influence on the fashion industry.
“While 3D printing is nothing new, it was invented in 1984 by Charles ‘Chuck’ Hull, its influence on the fashion industry is. 3D printers are becoming more and more mainstream and available for personal use. And while 3D Printing will most likely influence fashion through homemade gadgets-like-items that will pop up in the streets and on streetstyle-blogs, the real revolutionary stuff is happening in Haute Couture.
Back in 2011 TIME Magazine named Iris van Herpen’s 3D printed dress one of the 50 Best Inventions of the year 2011 (image above). Iris van Herpen is part of Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture and known for pushing the boundaries of materials and design within the fashion industry. Last January she presented two new innovative 3D printed textiles during her ‘Voltage’ presentation during the Haute Couture Paris Fashion week.”
