LIVTHELABEL

  A while ago we got an invite to check out LIVTHELABEL, a new upcoming brand designed by Anouck Van Der Tuyn. The collection is a perfect balance between laidback and casual chique, we are sure that everyone can find a cool piece to create a LIVTHELABEL outfit. In this blogpost we’re twinning to the max again. We both loved the khaki colored bomber jackets and got inspired to create a super casual outfit with these eye-catching pieces. Lars is wearing the short bomber and grey sweater from LIVTHELABEL, the sweater has the sweetest quote on the back. “You are a good reason to be happy” With a pair of black cutout pants from Filles A Papa, Lars’s Rick Owens x Adidas sneakers and a transparent pair of glasses from Polette he’s totally LIVTHELABEL-proof.     Michelle on the other hand is wearing a long bomber jacket. It has a parka fitting but it still looks exactly like a bomber! How cool is that! We think that every girl needs a pair of good overknee …

I’m not really into the idea of pigeonholing. I love it when people express their individuality, regardless of gender roles or expected behaviour.     That’s how I bumped into the collection of My Sunday Morning. Their collection has a strong bohemian vibe, with soft cottons and warm cozy knits. But what really caught my eye were these impeccable suits. They’re more comfortable, relaxed and cozy than the sharp tailored suits from menswear collections. I decided to try one of their suits on for fun and I was amazed by how the pants fitted me like a glove! Unlike other dressed pants I wore before, these hugged me in all the right places and didn’t make me look like a 10-year old trying on his dads costume.     I combined the vest and pants from My Sunday Morning with my navy blue blazer, to add …

A ka so

  Recently we were invited for a cozy dinner with friends to talk about/get to know the brand Akaso. We couldn’t help but being very excited: the minimalistic, sleek esthetique combined with an inspiring background story. So we couldn’t wait to tell you guys some more about it.      Akaso comes from the Italian ‘a caso’, which means ‘by coincidence’. Coincidence is an important factor on how Philippe Vertriest, founder of Akaso, started his brand. As a father of two Ethiopian born daughters he came across the book ‘Painted Bodies’ about African body painting art. That’s how he got to the idea of making a brand in which he could unite Belgian Akaso designers with the Kara tribe in Ethiopia.     The people from the Kara tribe are known for their tribal, abstract body painting art. They paint on skin with the earth as a palette. Philippe organised workshops where six young male and female body painting artists from the Kara tribe could co-create with the two Belgian designers.
