“IRIS”, the documentary I’ve been looking forward to for months now. 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.

Lucien De Roeck

Last weekend we visited the museum of Ixelles in Brussels. Both for the impressive collection of Belgian artists as well as their temporary exhibition on the likes of Lucien De Roeck (1915-2002). We knew Lucien’s winning poster design for the city of Antwerp back in 1934, from the replica hanging in our friends’ living room; picturing Antwerp as… More

SuTurno

I’d like to drop you a quick word. In between the organized PR chaos. Just like the apparent chaos in the prints of SuTurno. Always in control, a perfect trompe l’oeil. See what you want to see, love what you want to love. Making controlled decisions, in a spontaneous way. That’s also how I like… More

Beauty

I dedicate this post to all the beautiful women that surround me, but one in particular, the one that introduced me to Yves Rocher. You know who you are! A true beauty in every way possible. I’m at the end of my twenty-something years and I’ve always been quite lucky when it comes to my… More
