The Way I Felt Today

Sometimes you can stand out by keeping it simple, especially when the shapes of seemingly basic garments are revealed to have more dimensions at second sight.

In stark contrast to the boisterous effect of countless neon signs proclaiming their message in the streets, the magical way neon lights bounce off white in a round room with fluid edges can be quite tranquilizing.

Supermassive Black Hole

Contrast. That is exactly where two different realms clash, yet in a very surprising way consolidate each other.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

What a delightful sight! For the first time in about 6 years, parts of the canals in Amsterdam have frozen hard enough to walk and skate on the ice.

Breathe

Once the magic of the December festivities has worn off, winter can seem quite a dreary time to get through without the holiday decorations and celebrations. January is often a melancholy month that can feel long and trying, with spring being all that we long for.

The year 2018 has fallen upon us and how other than to start the new year in style with some old Hollywood glamour, with a playful ton-sur-ton purple and fuchsia color palette beautifully caught in a soft spotlight.

A combination with fuchsia gives it a more sultry and seductive savor, leaving it up to the lustrous silky materials and shiny sparkles to give it the festive feeling that is perfectly suited for New Year’s Eve.
