Beggin For Thread

Prominent in many alternative subcultures and clothing styles, studs and spikes have been bringing a rebellious edge to fashion as far back as the Middle Age. All though, have gone through quite the transformation since the Samurai, Celts and Romans attached them to their armors. Used to make a bold statement by punks in the 70’s and metal heads in the 80’s, the leather clad studs and spikes look has lost some of its edge since the new millennium. Show Me More…

Spring always casts such a polished glow over the streets of Paris, especially the ones lined with signature Haussmanian buildings made from pale limestone.

Cold War

Once morning has broken on the first day of spring, the sparse sun rays make us feel quite eager to abandon our jackets.

Square People

Easing into the last winter month like an ever-thirsty pansy yearning for spring, it’s almost making February feel like the longest month of the year rather than the shortest.

Stranger / Lover

Admittedly never really looking forward to the cold winters in Amsterdam, one could still never disregard the cozy charm of the streets around the Central Canal district with the early morning mist lingering over the waters.

Winter Song

In January, doesn’t the icy cold seem even more brisk once the December holidays are over and the NYE festivities have been left behind? It might all be in our heads, but not necessarily the reason why we gravitate towards dark colors while styling our outfits.
