Hand Me My Leather

It’s spring! Well sort of….there’s a bit of sun and I don’t need to wear gloves, hats and wooly scarves anymore. Anyway it means that normal people start wearing spring clothes: lighter fabrics, brighter colours, floral prints, etc.  But all I can think of is that I desperately, utterly, immediately need a pair of black leather shorts…….

I’m afraid that finding the right pair will be a “mission impossible”. I don’t want the “gay bar” type of shorts, they shouldn’t be too oversized and they should have the perfect fit. But I’m not going to give up! Look how great these shorts are!

Dedicated Followers of Fashion

In case you stay at home tonight, I recommend watching the next Dutch documentary,  called “Trendspotting Londen”. The documentary is about London as the capitol of streetstyle and shows new young fashion talents. Also interviews with fashion editors Suzy Menkes and HillaryAlexander, Louise Wilson (director of Central Saint Martins) and street fashion photographer Yvan Rodic (Face Hunter).

Rock Fashionista Fashion by Gestuz

One of my favorite clothing brands is the Danish label Gestuz. Since their start in 2007, I adore their clothes; simple but not plain, stylish but not too trendy, well made, perfect fit, etc. According to their website the Gestuz girl is a  “laid-back rock fashionista”:   

g0I sort of meet their description….ahum……., except the part about the sneakers, and replace the “sipping cocktails” with “drinking beer”…….

The Gestuz campaign photo’s are incredible good and could replace any fashion magazine photoshoot. Take look at them:

Like a Virgin Part Two

Once upon a time there was an eighties actress named Molly Ringwald. She always played brilliant roles in cool teenage movies like The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. If you haven’t seen these movies, shame on you!

Anyway, I had to think of her when I was listening to the hot new band of the moment: The Virgins. The Virgins make excellent eighties pop music. A bit like Franz Ferdinand, but more poppy and less ‘arty’. The Virgins make the perfect soundtrack for any Molly Ringwald movie!

They are a band from New York City and formed in 2005. They’ve had one self-titled album out in 2008 (with a chewing gum cover to match their bubblegum pop). Some facts: Rolling Stone magazine voted their song  “Rich Girls” as one of the best 100 songs of 2008, model Jessica Stam was seen wearing their T-shirt backstage at a Lanvin show and their songs have been used on the tv-show Gossip Girls.

They’re playing at the Paradiso, Amsterdam on the 11th of April and at Rotown, Rotterdam on the 12th of April. And, if you happen to be in London and plan to go to the Camden Crawl festival, they’re also playing there.
