Fire skies

When a fire alarm wakes you during your holiday midday nap and forces you rush out of the hotel just to hear that it was indeed a false alarm, at least you can take advantage of the fact that without this sudden distraction, this beautiful sunset would have gone totally unnoticed.
Luckily the only fire to be found was in the Virginia skies.

Back from the grave

I have just woken from very long hibernation period, call it a writers block if you like, but here I am back from the grave and ready to blog again. It’s like one of those moments when you feel the first rays of the spring sun on your face, and suddenly everything seems possible. To start off, I share some pictures from my Easter trip to Belgium. I mainly hung out in Gent and and Antwerp, where every avant-garde fanatics must-see destination is of course the Ann Demeulemeester flagship store. That beautiful establishment alone called for a picture time.

Under the Tuscan sun

Summer has officially turned into fall but I’m still in the reminiscence events from earlier this year. In April I was invited to Italy, to visit the studio of Barbara Bologna, the artist behind the clothing brand Area di Barbara Bologna. I spent a long weekend talking about and stalking her design process and designs, especially her F/W12 collection. She also showed me the beautiful Tuscan countryside where she resides; right where the sea and mountains meet. I think I left a huge piece of my heart to Italy: To its friendly people, great food and breathtaking landscape. Plenty of reasons why I must visit this magical place again.

In the showroom: OBSCUR S/S12 collection

Last summer I had the privilege of visiting the OBSCUR showroom in Paris and see what Spring /Summer 2012 looked like. This beautifully crafted collection featured light weight basics made of Japanese organic cotton and rustic looking linen jackets, without forgetting the typical to OBSCUR leather goods such as jackets with a new moldable collar and an oversize zippered bag. Designer Richard Söderberg‘s idea was to make the garments like an armor, protecting their bearer but still keeping them wearable. OBSCUR S/S12 will become available early next year.
