On the importance of the right accessories

How about Mansur Gavriel and Irina Gachechiladze? When shopping for accessories, it’s so easy to find exactly what you thought you needed, but not really. It’s a trap! It’s one of the most over-saturated markets, with bad buys all around. All the more reason to go looking for exactly the right accessories. Here’s a couple… More

I’ve got your back

Exposing your back feels like risky business. Far more confronting than wearing a deep neckline or a very short skirt, I think. You feel vulnerable and naked. But sometimes there’s no shame in showing that side of yourself. It’s also delicate and beautiful. This Wolford body exposes and covers at the same time, simultaneously stimulating… More

Mujinga

Komono just launched one of their best collabs to date, if you ask me! Baloji is never just but always more than one of the following things: a poet, a composer-lyricist/beatmaker, scriptwriter, actor and performer, video artist and stylist. Born in Congo, Baloji grew up in Belgium, bringing together the best of both worlds in… More

Ada Kokosar, Italian stylist living in New York, created a universe of shapes, textures and minimal perfection, building her story around her own… More

H&M Studio AW15

Every time H&M launches another capsule collection or collab, I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. You know you’ll get good value for your money, both style and quality wise. So when I got the chance to shoot some pieces from their H&M Studio AW15 collection shown in Paris this Spring, I enthusiastically paired… More

Stellasport

Yes, I’m one of those women who draws motivation out of a fashionable sports outfit. I plead guilty. So when the new Adidas Stellasport collection popped-up in my inbox, I had my sights set on some new gear. I must admit that the allover animal print was bold, even for me, but from the second… More

Pigeon perfect!

I’ve got this thing with animals. No shit Sherlock! And I’ve got this thing with my new Levi’s Lot 700 High Rise Skinny. I fill it up nicely and it’s just that damn comfortable. It’s my new daily staple. Grab, slide, button, add a simple T or a white shirt, go for sneakers or heels,… More

Bloomon

When they asked me to test a new flower delivery service in Antwerp, I was skeptical at first. I had an instant vision of dull bouquets of classic shapes and flowers. Until I took a better look at what Bloomon had to offer. Could it really be? Beautifully designed bouquets, affordable prices, delivered at your doorstep?… More

Chloé Georgia

A woman falls in love at least a couple of times a year. Over and over again: with the love of her life, that fabulous pair of shoes, that special coat and, oh yes, that one designer bag. My new life partner? The Chloé Georgia mini. Ever since I started working, I’ve been investing in… More

Swedish melancholy at its driest

Sometimes you just feel connected to a brand. I had been seeing Stutterheim raincoats all over the place.

I stumbled upon their poetic tagline, “Swedish melancholy at its driest”, and immediately knew what… More

IRIS

“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

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
