Muller van Severen for AD Spain

Jil Sander SS11 Backstage by James Cochrane

My August thoughts are live at flounce.fi. My trip to Antwerp made me research some Belgian fashion- and furniture designers. I’ve been obsessed by Muller van Severen for a while, too bad the gallery in Antwerp representing the designer duo was closed during the latest visit.

Also, how good was Jil Sander’s SS11 collection designed by Raf Simons. The combo of white cotton t-shirt and volume bottom creates a perfect contrast.

Antwerp

Two snapshots from my favorite city, Antwerp, where my loveliest friends took me for a surprise trip. We stayed in an AirBnb but went for drinks to Hotel Julien, where I’m definitely going to stay next time! As much as I love Paris, weekend getaways do wonders for the mind.

Margiela for Hermès AW2001

Margiela the Hermès Years – exhibition left me longing for straight and strapless necklines. As refreshing as it was to visit an exhibition where no photos were allowed, I would have loved to share details from some of my favourite looks, such as a strapless wool jumpsuit from AW2001 collection.

This shape can look easily tacky, but combined with long and volumous bottom makes it interesting and in a right way akward.

St. Vincents concept store, Antwerp

I spent the weekend in Antwerp and as a result my phone is full of pinterest-ready pictures and mind filled with inspiration from well curated concept stores, galleries and – of course – Margiela the Hermès years -exhibition. After Paris, the city felt extremely fresh; modern architecture and interior everywhere, gorgeus stores and really kind people.
