Love Dagger

Why would you only cautiously test the common boundaries a little when you can be a true rebel, completely unapologetic towards the social norm for what is deemed fashionable? Trend neutral styles are either boring or gaudy, but only the latter could ever be unique. Identifying herself as an eclectic designer, Sabine Staartjes takes inspiration from the 80’s, the urban scene and some high-class elements. Cooking them up into a cacophony of vibrant colors and lively prints, the flavor of her label Studio Sabine Staartjes is clearly defined. Show Me More…

I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo

When neons are framed by black and caught amidst electric blue surroundings, something awe-inspiring happens. Especially when the last late afternoon sun rays cast a sultry hue across the iridescent walls. Ever since raves kicked off in late 80’s England, the rave fashion trend has gone through a multitude of evolutions. Show Me More…

Brand New Revolution

It might take a few fashion faux pas before you learn how to master the skill of mixing loud prints, but that is what experimenting and having fun with fashion is all about. Iconic prints such as glenn plaid, tropical prints and stripes are continuously exiting and re-entering the scene at random intervals, and it seems like they take their turn as the season’s leading look. Glenn plaid is clearly well represented within high-street collections this year, but with our fondness of imprudent style clashes we prefer to infuse them all into rather playful, casual yet tailored ensembles.

Blessings

The wide blue sky is slowly swept by a gradient golden hue, as the sun is crossing the meridian. Regardless of the smoldering heat, the exquisite landscape of Santorini invites the curious traveler inside of us to explore and admire its flora and verdure. The winding white paths trail past gorgeous pines, palms and an occasional cactus, casting demure earth tones that contrast the stark white villages and misty caldera horizons. Show Me More…

Wearing Out My Shoes

Towering cliffs, indigo waters and picturesque white villages are the staples that hold the unsurpassed magic of Santorini together tightly. Falling in love with this Greek island comes so effortlessly while making your way up and down the winding narrow steps on the hills, catching the view of the sun setting above the volcano, while it slides into the glistening Aegean sea. Putting countless treads behind our heels, even brand new shoes will be worn out before we ever reach the end of the tiered white mountain hubs. For the traveler is impelled by curiosity.

Natural Complexion

Just a perfect day spent in the magical small Balinese village named Ubud? Imagine a quiet and secluded hideout, tucked away between the wavering palms and endowed with an infinity pool which offers enchanting views of the jungle. A little bit of paradise enjoying total relaxation and complete tranquility within the comfort of a luxurious private pool villa at Komaneka at Bisma. Of course we prefer to work on our sunkissed natural complexions in style, sporting swimwear on a par with the jungle forrest vibes. Show Me More…

Help Me Lose My Mind

The purity and transcendence of an all-white interior becomes even more imposing when it is amassed with bold design, and architect Zaha Hadid certainly was ahead of her time when she created her works, well-known for their fluidity and hyper-modern aesthetic. Presenting you with this place of quasi-science fiction with its curved shapes and winding spaces, Zaha Hadid invites you to dream, feel inspired, imagine different worlds and escape the daily grind. Translating these fluid shapes into fashion, the minimalist look experiments with this dynamic. Over-accessorizing or adding too many items or appliques would detract from the style, so keeping it simple is key. Show Me More…

I Don’t Wanna Dance

Modern day punk rock style carries elements from various former subcultures, with the example being original Dr. Martens boots. Show Me More…
