Yesterday I went to the bookstore to buy myself a bunch of magazines. The summer isn’t the most inspiring time for magazines. They’re usually full with articles about how to look good in a bikini, miracle diets that make you lose half your body weight in ten days and luxurious holiday destinations to tropical islands……..so I started to look for something different and to my surprise, I found a wonderfull magazine called Russh. It’s an Australian bi-monthly magazine and their May/June ’09 issue is now in Dutch stores (altough their July/August ’09 issue is already published!!!).
What I like about Russh is it’s perfect mixture of retro and modern. I’s not as sentimental-romantic as Lula, but it’s also not a big parade of trends that only last two months. I usually tear out the pages of magazines I like to make scrapbooks, and I wanted to tear apart the whole magazine…. so that’s good!

This sunday I will spent the evening with Dutch fashion designers Viktor and Rolf. I will wear my pyjamas, make myself a cup of hot chocolate ( the weather is horrible here, so I think I’m allowed to drink hot chocolate in the middle of the summer), and turn on the tv.
There’s a Dutch tv-show called “Zomergasten” (Summer Guests). Every sunday evening there will be a different guest, and that guest can decide what (fragments of) tv-programs and movies he or she wants to see. This sunday Viktor and Rolf are the guests.
What to expect:
- “Neues vom Kleidermarkt”: a German tv-programm about fashion;
- “De Vierde Man”: a Dutch movie from director Paul Verhoeven (1983);
- “Ludwig”: an Italian movie from Luchino Visconti (1972) with legendary actress Romy Schneider;
- “The Hours”: a British/American movie from director Stephen Daldry (2002) with Nicole Kidman and Julianne Moore;
- The documentary “In and Out of Fashion” by William Klein, with fragments of a young Yves Saint Laurent;
- Fragments from dancing scenes from Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (“Top Hat”, 1935);
- Fragments from MTV “Made”.
The evening will end with the movie “Maurice” from director James Ivory (1987), with Hugh Grant in his first major film roll. The movie is set in England in the early 20th century, so expect a lot of impressive costumes.
And ofcourse the host of the show will be interviewing Viktor and Rolf.
Sunday the 26th of July, VPRO Nederland 2, 20.12 h CET.
Last year saw the rebirth of the famous Ossie Clark label. Ossie made gorgeous clothing in the sixties en seventies (muted colours, moss crepe fabric, floral prints by Celia Birtwell, empire-lines, trumpet sleeves, bias cut), items that are rare collectables now and they are wanted by many vintage loving girls. So the rebirth of the label was something to be excited about, altough there seemed to be a lot of mixed feelings: It could never have been better than the originals.
The critics got it right this time: the first Fall 2008 collection was quite horrible and didn’t have any connection with the originals. The second collection (Spring 2009) was much better but also did seem to miss the “Ossie” spirit. But finally the third collection for Fall 20o9 was, in my opinion, fantastic.
After three seasons the label is already shutting down due to “market conditions”. The label’s latest designer, Israelian Avsh Alom Gur, left after designing the Fall 2009 collection to design his own signature line.
Check out the next pictures to see the past collections.
