There are just not enough words to describe how beautiful Bali – the Island of the gods- really is, all those perfect postcard pictures just don’t do justice to the striking, magnificent views of crystal clear blue waters, tropical jungles and sublime sunsets.
Being the true treasure trove of natural beauty that the island of Bali is, the unrivaled views of the dense jungle are enough to swerve you to just go with the flow, letting your senses guide you. Following this trail of curiosity, one can never know what the day may bring, thus versatile ensembles that pass as day to evening wear will suffice where ever we end up. The archetypal singlet and shorts are glammed up with a blazer and dress shoes for him, while a slinky cocktail dress with draped gather detail still retents its allure paired with some elegant sandals for her. Turquoise and teal are the key to this colorful expression of sophistication.
Enjoying the breathtaking nature and rejuvenating transcendence of Bali, heightening your vacation experience with the comfort of a luxury resort is worth every penny. Soaking up UV rays lounging around our private pool villa, we take a casual approach to resort wear. Sporting classic styles with a hint of prep and boho chic pushed through a vignette of muted warm colours, our looks feature a vintage leaf printed button down shirt and caramel brown denim bermuda shorts for him, flanked by a maroon multi-way jumpsuit and wooden beaded necklaces for her. Not only is it proven that vacation time proposes many health benefits, travelling is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.
As many fashion trends become saturated in time, some timeless styles not only last but also prove to be perfectly fusible with contemporary designs. Putting a twist on the beloved boho aesthetic, many haute couture designers have adopted the dark bohemian look and mixed it with the romantic gothic and gypsy style featuring ethnic prints and sheer black with excessive silver jewellry as seen on her, or the more modern minimalistic hippie style featuring tie-dyed prints combined with black leather apparels as seen on him. The progressiveness and urban retrograde is marked by the men’s leggings and leather fanny pack. With so many blendable elements, you can always reinvent your appearance.
Bali is frequently dubbed “the Island of the Gods” and the sense of calmness which is so deeply rooted within Balinese heritage will take a firm hold on your soul as soon as you may ever witness the beauty of the island. Tropical degrees may call for the typical dowdy tourist attire, yet we are in absolutely no case willing to compromise our style standards. Besides, resort wear has become its own fashion niche. Striking a balance between beachy lounge wear and elegance, the more dressed up satin-look take on the Hawaii shirt for him is paired with some white bermudas, flanked by a wide legged jumpsuit in navy for her. Not all those who wander are lost, especially if you travel in style.

Fancy oneself descending the stone steps surrounding the French riviera, imbued with that contagious joie de vivre ambling down the boulevards. Our colour palette comprising beige, taupe and terra blend into the environs, featuring a palazzo pant for her of which the raffish yet ravishing snake skin print is subtly reprised by the matching pocket square for him. Elegance is good taste plus a dash of daring!
We were completely stoked when we were invited to the catwalk show of Anbasja Blanken’s newest ready-to-wear collection at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam, this time presenting a collection of women’s trousers under the name “ALA BLANKA”. Laying eyes upon the pictures from Anbasja Blanken’s first catwalk show at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam in January 2016, her fondness of trousers and the exceptional skill and vision with which she creates them is indubitable.
Zyanya Keizers’ work is a true mixture of art and fashion, which is substantiated as each of her collections is an expression of fantasy and ethereal beauty. Zyanya is renowned for her advocacy of a timeless aesthetic and in her work a strong appreciation for nostalgia, as well as a surreal vision of the future is clearly visible.
Singer Maika opened the show for Monique Collingon this time, her strong vocals and poppy sound provided the perfect up-beat and uplifting ambiance for the presentation of the SS17 collection named “The Conscious Collection”. A sustainable ready-to-wear collection, which just like the previous two collections is made almost entirely (up to 70%) from Waste2Wear materials. These materials have been produced using a special recycling process which has been developed over eight years, using plastic bottles to create fabrics that closely mimic silk and crêpe. A really fun detail is that the label in each item of clothing will tell you exactly how many plastic bottles were used to create it. Even the other fabrics such as lace and details such as buttons and zippers have been produced following eco-friendly methods. As a designer, Monique Collingon takes responsibility by using modern technologies that support sustainability.
