Photo series: Ibiza

When traveling we always go loco on the photo front. These pictures didn’t make the cut into our Rural Ibiza Guide, but we think they deserve a post of their own on Yayzine. Welcome to Ibiza through the eyes of Michiel.       


Swedish melancholy at its driest

Sometimes you just feel connected to a brand. I had been seeing Stutterheim raincoats all over the place. They intrigued me and I decided to take a closer look at the product and the brand story that comes with it. I stumbled upon their poetic tagline, “Swedish melancholy at its driest”, and immediately knew what… More


Let’s go outside!

A few years ago we moved from a house with a big garden in the countryside around Ghent to an apartment in the outskirts of Antwerp. A whole adjustment for us outdoorsy types. But we fell head over heels for our prewar place with cute little terrace overlooking the communal garden of our building. You… More

Yay discovery: Finery London

There’s nothing more exciting than discovering new brands and sharing them with you. Latest addition to my fashion list? Finery London. I call it the UK version of COS.

Rural Ibiza guide

It was that time of year again. Time to escape it all. Recharge our batteries. Time to go back to the island. Ibiza, to most people, is still the walhalla of parties, decadence and booze, but we came to love a whole other side of the island. Which sounds quite funny as Ibiza is about… More

Tonight I had the honor of watching it in the presence of Dries Van Noten himself and the people of MOMU, the fashion museum of Antwerp. Dries has made a selection of films for Cinema Zuid in Antwerp, “IRIS” being on top of his… More


The perfect heel

When it comes to shoes, the options are limitless, or so it seems. But once you tried on a really well-made shoe, you won’t want anything else in the world. That’s how I fell in love with the Dutch brand Fred de la Bretonière, by slipping my toes into a pair of their Goldies. Fred… More

Wallpaper inspiration

“Don’t be like the rest of them darling!” A quote I religiously live by ever since I saw the light of day. Not that I try my hardest to be special, I just genuinely fall for the less evident things in life, I’m even drawn to it you could say. That’s why I’m having a hard… More


A short trip to Barcelona

Barcelona, a city loved by many, never visited by us, until recently that is. Somehow we always end up in Paris when it comes to city trips: that one occasion, that one expo drawing us in. So when Spanish airline Vueling invited us to go and celebrate San Jordi in their hometown, we made the… More

My favorite style moment of the day

s.Oliver asked me about my favorite style moment of the day. Well that’s a no-brainer! For me, getting all dressed up in the morning, ready to start the day, is my ultimate style moment. I love giving my look that final touch before heading out the door, picture perfect. At least for an hour or two! I… More
