OK…. I have to tell you something…. I actually was not allowed to buy anything this whole month… BUT firstly I bought this in sale… and secondly online, so I figured it would be delivered in February, and…. in addition… be taken out of my account in February since I paid with my credit card… How could I have known that they were here so fast! Well actually I should have known since if you order with us you receive it the next day as well. But still I LOVE them….What do you think? Will show how I wear it soon….
Prada opened their 24 hours museum yesterday in Paris. The initiative was to continue their exploration of reciprocal influences in visual arts, cinema and theatre.The 24 hours museum was designed by Francesco Vezzoli together with AMO (Dutch Pride: Rem Koolhaas’ think tank). The museum is only open for 24 hours (hence the name) in Palais d’Iena.
The museum is divided in three sections, historic, contemporary and forgotten. Vezolli is creating a “non-existent museum” where he shows his personal tribute to the eternal allure of femininity. But you have to take a look for yourself to understand….
When I lived in Londen, Prada had a similar initiative with the Double Club which was a pop up club and was a tremendous success. Don’t forget to take a look on their website as well! http://www.24hoursmuseum.com
I ADORE Iris Apfel, this is the kind of woman you want to be your grandmother, at least I would adopt her as my grandmother. She is 90 years old and breathes fashion. Some people have Kate Moss as a style Icon – in my eyes a bit boring- Iris Apfel is mine. You can recognise her from her round black glasses. She is also known as Rara Avis which means rare bird. I LOVE eccentric people like her who are not afraid to combine everything they have in their closet. She has designed a jewellery line under the name Rara Avis, and now she was the inspiration for MAC. Well she is my inspiration as well!
This week is quite busy since all the press agency’s in Amsterdam have their press day where they present their newest SS12 collection. Normally you are not allowed to take any pictures, not really sure why since when I buy the collections- which is 6 months before- I make pictures as well, but hey…. Some at least have to pretend they have some kind of power ;-). This was my outfit, I will show you some pictures of my best likes and tell you who had the best goody bag!
p.s. The vest by Edun will be online in two weeks!
