FASHION WEEK SS 17: Recap New York

They say that in fashion world September is equal to January. Why? Because this month is all about a new beginning. Or - to be more precisely – it’s all about the launch of new collections. 

We flip through our September issues and are being introduced to the new trends and collections of the new season. The Autumn / Winter season. But that’s not it. No, we’re also looking forward. Further into the future. Because, during the well-known Fashion Weeks in the fashion capitals, we’ll see the collections for next year’s Spring / Summer season. And this event, with the duration of four weeks, is happening right now!

Traditionally, New York is the first one to be taken over by the fashion industry, then London, Milan and last but not least, Paris. While all of the models, photographers, fashion gurus and journalists etc. have meanwhile moved themselves to the city of London, I would like to reflect New York Fashion Week for a moment.

Though I wasn’t there in person, I have seen all of the fashion shows via the website of Vogue. The shows of Tommy Hilfiger, Proenza Shouler and 3.1 Phillip Lim were definitely my favorite! I’ve put together my 60 favorite looks of the whole thing in this slideshow down below. What do you think?

LOOKBOOK: Pyjama Shirt

Survived the first week of high school. I have started my last year in this place - if everything goes as planned. It’s getting serious now. Within a few months I will be able to do whatever I want. Traveling, moving back to my dear Amsterdam - everything is possible. Seriously can’t wait J. But first: I have to graduate. And I’ll have to work hard to manage that.

When I seriously try to be a good student and to make my homework, I cannot deny that I get distracted sometimes and find myself screening the Internet for gems. Yes, I have to admit; I’m slightly addicted to online shopping. And the fact that I’m actually very good at it, doesn’t help. For example; last week I spotted this leopard printed pyjama shirt from LoveStories with 70% off. Score! 

The famous pyjama shirts from LoveStories combined with a leopard print. What more do you want in life? For the people who don’t understand that it’s normal nowadays to rock your pyjama shirt as a normal shirt - well - we probably live in a time where that's okay. I don’t know. 

So, about my outfit. I was wearing the pyjama shirt with a blue cotton button-up shirt from the label Oxence based in Paris. They have the best classic button-up shirts, a must have in every closet. Make sure to check it out! To make the look complete, I wore a pair of Levi’s 501 and simple white slip-ons. Do you like it?

FAVORITES: An Ode To Vagabond

For today’s article I wanted to share my enthusiasm for the shoe brand Vagabond. If you have never heard of this brand before, it’s a good thing that you’re reading this now. Because man, they’re amazing. And I think everyone should know!

Vagabond is a Swedish fashion brand, but they are mainly known for their awesome shoes. I would describe them as minimalistic, timeless and of high-quality. At the moment, I’m the proud owner of two pairs of Vagabond shoes.
