Take it easy: Slip-On Sneakers

Posted on 21 March 2014

Take it easy: Slip-On Sneakers   A big hit this spring and summer but even during autumn and winter: the Slip-On Sneakers.   As seen at Givenchy and Jimmy Shoo,  myself I spotted them during the fashion show from Dévastée ( as you can see on my post about Dévastée). American sneakers brand Vans also offers a wide selection.   Because the model as such is very basic and ordinary, it is the used  tissue that makes you stand out from the crowd.   You can buy yourself a fancy Slip-On Sneaker at the brands mentioned above but with a bit of creativity you design your own personalized sneakers. Simple ones you can find at Primark and H&M for example.   Myself I really…

Le Pandorine: Stylish bags with a statement

Posted on 11 March 2014

Creative bags with a personal touch for an affordable price, you will find at Le Pandorine.

I made a visit at their flagship shop during my stay in Milan and took pleasure in reading all the nice and sometimes daring statements on their bags.

Wether you are looking for a handbag, a shopping bag or a beach bag, they have it all.

The prices are affordable, depending on the model and size, approximately between 25 and 65 EURO.

For this price range, don’t expect any leather but mostly plastic and faux leather.

A nice bag that glans up your day and that of others.

Macabre humor at fall/ winter collection 2014-2015, Dévastée

Posted on 6 March 2014

In a setting that gave the impression of a cemetery, models with a nonchalant look showed us loos fitted clothing.

With a messy bobbed haircut, could-be phantoms, walked with ease around crosses. A collection of only black and white with dark comedy prints was presented.

Trendsetting slip-on sneakers with a mosaic of mirrored glass pieces gave the look an extra touch of reflection.

Everyday and graceful clothing at Christine Phung

Posted on 5 March 2014


The fall/winter collection 2014-2015 of Christine Phung found place at Galleries Lafayette Maison.

In a ordinary room which was far to small, guests were jammed up together.

Models with naturally red cheeks from the heat, high ponytails and red colored lips, showed us

habitual feminine clothing.

Skirts and dresses above the knees, some tight, some loose, were seen in combination with V-shaped décolletés.

Warm toned colors, prints influenced by asian art and Swarowski decoration on the clothing gave an extra touch.

Not a awe-inspiring show but a nice collection with style.
