inspiration: SLOUCHY BOOTS with SHORTS

August 16, 2012 § 2 Comments

On Tuesday I received these boots from ZARA that I had bought online. I’m absolutely in love how nicely they slouch down the leg. The slouchiness of it gave me a flashback to ISABELLE MARANT‘s Spring 2011 collection. Jeans shorts with wide belts sitting low on the hips, playful dresses with thick waist belts – all paired with slouchy, unlined boots. Later today I will post images of today’s boot outfit. Stay tuned!

my passion: FOOTWEAR

August 13, 2012 § Leave a comment

Currently working on the last spring collection for 2013. To kick-start the design process, we work on rough renderings first prior to going into to-scale technical shoe sketching. I love the technical side of footwear, working with shoe lasts makes me very happy! HAPPY MONDAY ❤

LEATHER pants/leggings

I’ve always had a big passion for anything made out of leather. My profession as a footwear designer has spiced up this devotion even further. Real snake and soft kid suede, rich tumbled calf leather and vegetable goats… the list of my favorites is endless. Numerous fashion houses have put emphasis to their love to this material in the latest fall 2012 fashion collections: Alexander Wang has perforated leather tops and bottoms, Acne showcased entire dresses made out of leather, Proenza Schouler promoted slouchy-fitting leather jackets. So far my loyalty had been limited to skirts and leggings in leather. Tomorrow I’ll give you an insight into my latest footwear sketching! / CELINE bag (made out of the most smoothest sheep nappa), Mango pants, CHARLES DAVID heels, ZARA white silk top and suit jacket

A basic pointed pump can be turned into a fashion statement by adding a chain around the ankle. The inspiration for this styling derives from the latest ISABELLE MARANT footwear collection. I love any focus on the ankle! / CHARLES DAVID pumps, self-made Jeans shorts, ZEBRA top by F21, glasses and blazer VINTAGE, CHLOE bag, pineapple belt found in Hong Kong, watch by LONGINES
