Birds of paradise

26.3.14

The weekend is fast approaching... Looking for a nice way to spend your Saturday? Why not visit Antwerp and go see the new exhibition at the fashion museum aka MoMu? I had the pleasure to preview 'Birds of Paradise' last Thursday and really loved it. Feathers, fluff and plumes - the haute couture on display showcases them all. From Marlene Dietrich's unique coat made from swans down to soft Chanel dresses and an intricate Dior dress with rooster feathers. Our guide knew the ins and outs of every design - who knew the art of 'plumissage' makes ordinary chicken feathers look like something from another world?

Time left? The Nationalestraat, where the museum is located, is lined with some really nice shops. Visit bookstore Copyright, next to the museum, or wander down the street and pop in Garderobe Nationale, Access, Dries Van Noten and Filippa K.

Weekend wanderlust

14.3.14

Here's some inspiration for the weekend: a beautiful campaign starring Erin - sexy tomboy roaming the streets in Malta - these abstract colour clouds by Kim Keever and The Shape of The Season - an online shopping guide combining the best clothes e-shops have to offer. Weekend dilemmas: thinking about letting my hair grow into a blunt bob, just like Jessie. And what about white nailpolish? Yay or nay? Have a nice weekend!
