Modo Brussels

I ‘ve visited my hometown Brussels yesterday, like a real tourist with a map in the hand and camera around the neck (luckily NOT wearing shorts and sandals with white socks). It’s the fashion parcours Modo Brussels that made us tourists. That parcours was a good opportunity to visit all the cool shops in and around the Dansaert street. There were about 60 places to visit, for this event the shops had creative installations of Brussels’ fashion designers and students from Brussels’ fashion school.

The first store we couldn’t resist walking into was Kartell, home designstore, there Céline Lellouche exhibited her collection, impressive.

Next we walked by the lively shopwindow of Underwear where Tine Prophete showed her first collection.

We made a stop at the unique vintage shop Idiz Bogam. The lady on the left wore a piece of Vanessa Vukiceviks collection, who exhibited her work here.

Hunting and Collecting showed ‘stunning’ heads from Mouton Collet (two french jeweldesigners who are not scared of some extravagance)

Modo parcours made me discovered MAPP., a clothing store with a great selection of magazines in their store, Belgian designer Valéria Siniouchkina had her exhibition installed in the shop around her label Girls from Omsk.

End of evening.

fall is coming

After a few weeks of crappy weather here in Belgium, it feels like fall has started. The only thing I like about fall are the dark and mystic clothes, you can let your dark side show.

I can see warm clothes coming, attached with fur and leather. And when I say fur I mean all kinds of fur, not only the soft fur we know from our grandmothers coat. I mean long haired fur, sheepfur, plumes, fishleather, there are no boundaries no more, you will see anything that once was the skin of a living creature. The battle against the cold has started, mankind is prepared..

I see accessorizing taking a big role in the clothing process, accessories become part of clothes, and we ‘ll find new ways to wear accessories. The jewels aren’t there just to be pretty, they are there to make statements.

I see an overload of black and camel on the catwalks. A dark and shadowy fall is coming. The overall look of this fall is a tough one, only for the braves.
