Bags & Fashion

With this blog we go back in time. Not only because this vintage coco bag has a vintage look and feel, but also because we did this shoot 4 months ago. You might remember other photos on this blog that were taken here as well as I really love this location: Le Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh. It took French painter Jacques Majorelle forty years of passion and dedication...

Spring is here! The birds are singing in the morning, you are meeting your friends on your favourite terrace, the trees carry blossom and you leave the house with bare legs - even though it is actually still too cold to do so. But hey; it's spring! It's in the air and there is no way around it. Everybody is happier, more relaxed and extra energised during this season. The...

They say you should never judge a book by its cover and it’s what’s inside that counts, and with those adages in mind, can we determine someone’s personality type by looking inside your purse? Our relationships with our bags supersede any of the connections we may have with our clothes and other accessories, with the exception of shoes as they are similar in the sense that we can never...

No Bag, No Story! – As you might know these four words constitute my personal motto. The bag is the most important accessory as it defines your style, distinguish yourself from others, completes the outfit and carries your world. It is therefore not without reason that many different bags have been designed and made through the years in terms of various models, by different brands, in diverse price ranges,...

The Eastpak Floid Backpack is one of my favourite allround bags. This bag is perfect for the every day city-life as well as leisure and holidays. I got this bag just before our trip to Marrakesh in November last year as I thought that this would be the perfect backpack for this city trip. My husband mostly carried this bag most of the time as a real gentleman. After we...

Yesterday was the last day of fashion month! And again it has been a true celebration to watch all the shows in which the most famous designers showed their new collections for Fall/Winter 2016-2017. But also on the streets of the four big fashion capitals, it was a true fashion party. Starting in New York with temperatures that were too cold to go outside whereafter London was calling. Milan...

When I was asked to be the ambassador of the launch of the new concept of a well known Dutch brand and shop, I was thrilled and honored. After 65 years Duifhuizen wanted to introduce a new concept and I was very excited to be part of that. In 1953 Mr. Duifhuizen senior started on the attic by making wallets by hand on the requests of his customers and...

This blog shows you my favourite bags of Milan fashion week that were presented by the fashion designers for Fall Winter 2016-2017 so far. Milan is home to many designers that I love, like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Fendi, Marni, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tod's and Emporio Armani. And again they make my heart beat. Whether it is with great boxes that can only be carried by strong sleeping beauties, striking pink shoulder...

This trend is not a new one, but an oh-so-nice-one! We are awaiting another summer in which we are going to embrace the playfulness of fringe. It has a touch of bohemian, tribal, 70's and the Wild Wild West. It is an eye-catcher for sure. These bags are relaxed, effortlessly cool and incredibly fun. The style is ideal for the weekends as it is great to twirle around with a fringed bag. The designers Emilio...
