Fashion Fever

  You guys may have seen it on my social channels, but I’m happy to say that I’m a Hunkemöller ambassador! A few weeks ago the sweet ladies from team Hunkemöller asked me what I would wear to Fashion Week. And most importantly what would to wear underneath it? When I think about the fashion weeks I see everyone expressing themselves with their favorite clothes. I’ve sadly never been able to go to a fashion week, but if I would go I would pick out my favorite pieces and strut my stuff. So if I can’t go to the fashion weeks, I’ll bring them to me! I’m wearing my favorite blue shirt from Zara, I’m crazy about this piece. It’s classy but with a twist and you can combine it with everything! My Levi’s jeans is my best buddy and I love the bigger fit.     Thanks to Hunkemöller you don’t need to overthink what you would wear underneath your outfit. Especially for this occasion Hunkemöller created the Fashion Week collection! How cool is …

Happy Pills

We always get excited whenever we discover creative talent from our own little country, Belgium. The first thing we saw from jewelry designer Jasmien Witvrouwen was a cute, little seahorse pin. We were curious to see more and she surprised us with the rest of her fun collection. That’s why we couldn’t be more happy to share the unique story behind Happy Pills. Happy Pills is about a feel good story, although it all started out on a less bright note. Jasmien is a young, creative lady who never sits still. 2 years ago she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and gastroparesis. This diagnosis hit her like a bomb. Her life is with ups and downs now, but Jasmien decided to embrace the little things. Those small, but magical moments that make life worth living. She turned her life upside down and that’s how the project ‘Happy Pills’ was born. She started out making little earrings with ornate funny spells like ‘Kiss my ass’ (a hidden message to her former employer) and ‘No more Tinder’. Wearing these …

Feelin’ FENTY

In this blogpost we’re channeling our inner Rihanna and we really went for it. What we love about RiRi? She is smokin’ hot, has an incredible fierce style, has no care in the world and she’s our future best friend. We adore her Fenty x Puma collections, so here’s to you Riri! We love to play with different kind of styles, so it was so much fun to do this cool and laidback shoot!  With to die for bombers, some Fenty pieces and killer glasses we felt our inner Riri growing. Talking about Fenty x Puma, Lars finally got his hands on some awesome black velvet creepers (after dreaming about them for ever)! He combined them with black trousers and his Weekday puffer jacket. We really love the oversized puffer jacket trend, the bigger the better! Perfect to look a little more bad ass. To give his outfit the perfect finish Lars’s wearing his pink Polette sunglasses. Keep your eyes open for these see-through sunglasses, it’s gonna be such a big hit this summer! Find your favorite at …

❄ ❄

  Temperatures have been dropping heavily, so now is the perfect time to take all my winter coats on a stroll through Antwerp. In this post I combined high-end brands with high street brands. I like to mix and match things up a little, cause let’s be honest I don’t have the budget (yet) to wear a full designer outfit. Therefor I try to buy good pieces whenever I can. Since a few months I have a new lover: my purple Wim Bruynooghe bag. Yes, I’m in love with it. It’s a little see through and fits perfectly with all my outfits. It’s a cool thing to support your local designers, so you really need to check out this amazingly talented and inspirational Belgian designer! This military inspired green coat from Primark is the ultimate addition to my coat collection. When wearing it, it makes me feel like a girl boss but feel classy at the same time. To spice up my outfit I put on my new fluffy leopard scarf from Urbancode London.     …

A Glass Affair

  We’ve  both been wearing glasses for most of our lives. But lately we’ve been experimenting with all kind of different types of frames, colors and sizes. A pair of glasses can be an amazing accessory. It’s the perfect finishing touch to add to every outfit. So pick a pair that works perfect for you and think about you wardrobe!     Our go-to website is polette.com/nl/. They have so many cool frames in different materials and colors, the options are endless. We’re sure that you’ll find your perfect pair. Or go crazy and pick not one but two (or more) pairs, cause honestly we can never choose. We both opted for round glasses. Michelle went edgy with the Adonis White in white and gold, while Lars chose for a more classical version of the Calvin Brown with brown tortoise. Why Polette? Because we can’t survive with just one pair of glasses. we love to have different options everday and change our glasses depending on our mood. Polette  offers you the perfect combo between quality and low …

Silky Day Dream

  Every morning we have the same struggle: leaving our warm and cozy beds and enter the cold, hard world. The idea to wear your sleepwear as daily wear makes it already a lot more bearable to leave our beds and start the day. They say fashion knows no comfort, but in this case you’ll have more comfort than ever. It’s no wonder we are smitten with the pyjama sets from The Cocoonalist. Lars is wearing the silk red pants and the cotton mandarin collar shirt with COS sneakers and finished his outfit off with gold – Dean – glasses from Polette eyewear. With the eye catching red pants (we can’t stop staring at them… ) you can create a classy look with a shirt or a more laid back one if you combine it with a cool t-shirt. If you find the red color a little to eye poppin’, wear a more low key color. There are enough cool pyjama sets on The Cocoonalist website.     Michelle is wearing an even more colorful combination from The Cocoonalist. The purple …

Goldfetch x Strellson

  Now that the temperatures are heavily dropping it’s time to hang those lovely fall coats back in the closet and bring out the heavy winter gear. Like every year I get slightly bored with the options I already have and feel the need to add a few cold weatherproof- updates. So I couldn’t be happier than when Strellson asked to help me find some ultimate winter essentials.     Strellson offers tailored wear for business minded men. They’re best known for their sleek design and classic approach. Clear lines, with a clear brand DNA. They offer formal wear, but with an edgy, urban twist. It’s fashion for the corporate boys who wanna be recognized by their own, unique and creative view, while still respecting the rules. The Strellson collections are designed in Switzerland and made in Europe.     I opted for a blue/black plaid jacket (stepping out of my comfort zone here, since I’m rarely seen wearing prints) in combination with a heavy knit turtleneck sweater for a formal, but cozy look. I …

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 …

Suited Up

  Something that many of you may not know is that besides of shopping in the menswear collections, I’m also not scared to roam around in the womenswear department. 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. Like the print on …
