Fading in

lensoutfit2

To end our little trip, we decided to make some outfit pictures in this beautiful SANAA building. We didn’t decided which one of us would show his outfit since we didn’t really know how the inside would be like. In the end, it seemed Joeri’s blue-white outfit fitted perfectly with the atmosphere of the museum.

 

Finding the right spot to take some shots in here wasn’t the most difficult part. The windows provide some great light inside and every space from the cafetaria to the picknick place is just suitable for a perfect picture.

Louvre Lens

louvrelens5

As architecture fans and online follower of SANAA buildings, it was time to finally see a masterpiece in real life. After our small getaway, we went further to Lens. What previously was a city that lived from the mine, is now a city that starts to focus more and more on the art scene. The first step to this was obviously the new Louvre.

 

 

 

 

SANAA is an architecture duo from Japan. Those Japanese always know to tickle us with there fragile shapes and materials. The entire cite (there’s a park too!) of Louvre Lens is organic. The building looks straight, but is curved very slightly. The park is completely organic. The lighting is placed arbitrary, so are the plants and the pedestrian walkways. When you’re outside the building, you can feel the link with the mine history Lens has. But once you’re inside, the shiny aluminium walls and the details really let you think of some futuristic place.

The great wall

Defining our style in just one or two words is hard. We are not getting impulses from just one (sub-)culture. Keeping our eyes open for what happens in the entire fashion scene is what we like to do.

 

 

In this look Pieter was definitely inspired by streetwear. From a sporty hoodie to classic Vans sneakers. Because the entire look is black, it still has its elegance and chicness. Where do you get your inspiration from?

Getaway

dhotel1

Besides our summer vacation (that still has to come though), we also decided to do a few small trips this summer. This time, we choose for a place in Belgium. This hotel is the perfect place to come to peace. Everything you can imagine is available in here. From wellness, a swimming pool, a restaurant and all over the place a quiet atmosphere. Besides the facilities and the atmosphere the architecture and the rooms are breathtaking. A place where everything feels right and that makes you calm.

Because we decided to go on a trip in our own country, the car was the most obvious transport. Although Belgium isn’t that big, we were still stuck with food and take away drinks in our car. So not getting gross was not an option. An all black outfit was a must to travel (with lots of food).

Summer bottom guide

styleguide1

We are both more winter types when it comes to getting dressed. We like layering and wrapping us self in. So the change to summer clothes is always something we like to delay. Since we’re struggling every year with this change and thought you guys maybe have the same struggle, we’re here with – hopefully – a helpful guide.

 

1. A jeans short: Very easy to combine and easy going. Just wear a pair of sneakers with it and you’re ready!

 

2. Slippers are hard to combine. Only wear it with shorts when you go to the beach! We wore it with a costume pants to make it instant chic!

3. There’s a thin line between sandals and slippers, but there definitely is one. These Teva sandals are so minimal shaped that you can combine them easily with everything.

 

4. When you don’t want to wear shorts but jeans are too hot, cut a hole in an old jeans to make the heat more bearable. Besides that, high top sneakers like these converses are also hard to combine with shorts, so if you aren’t a pro in combining clothes don’t try it out of your house.
