Go out with a bang. That is what I am trying to do, by showing the new Chanel s/s 2011 collection. I have decided to quit blogging, although it kind of hurts, it’s for the best. Thank you all for reading and following, you were the best. The blog will still exist, because of the articles I wrote. That way, people can still read all the fashion news from the past.

CHANEL S/S 2011
How on earth can a 77 year old German guy know exactly what fashion needs? Apparently, it is possible. Where other would have retired, Karl Lagerfeld is Kaiser of the Fashion World. His latest collection for Chanel blew me away, once again. This man has never dissapointed me. What a hero. His collections always remain ‘Chanel’, but yet are innovative and fresh. As his latest collection is. Secretly, I never want this man to retire. Karl, if you are reading this: don’t ever stop and become at least 200 years, please?

For bigger pictures, I recommend: ELLE.nl

I’m sorry for the lack of updates lately. I’ve been very busy – good busy – with trips, work and internship. I’m also trying to ‘heal my addiction to my laptop’. So I’m sorry, you’re going to have to entertain yourselfs these couple of weeks.

I do wan’t to give you this, enjoy. And I hope to see you guys around, in August!

It looks like this week is going to be a Chanel week. Not a very big coincident: Chanel is probably my favourite label. The Chanel Cruise collection this year is fan-tas-tic. Starring the gorgeous Georgia May Jagger that looks a bit like Brigitte Bardot (another personal hero), the clothes are real eye-catchers.

We see knee-high boots, lots of earth-tones, seventies wide-legged and high-waisted pants and long summer dresses. Exactly the way I want to look in summer! The show was ended with the model of the show (…Georgia indeed) on a motorcycle with a very cool guy driving her.

Hurray! Where the show of Chanel’s Cruise 2011 collection was a party itself, the campaign ad’s are candy for the eye. With the beautiful Georgia May Jagger as face of the campaign, the ad’s are magnificent.

The lovely Georgia poses near a stunning car with an evenso stunning guy in there. The ‘daughter of’ has a je-ne-sais-qoui attitude while the guy is obiously intrigued by her. Who wouldn’t, in those outfits.

My favourite ones? Below!

This week, I visited the exhibition Zwart (Black) in the Antwerp’s Fashion Museum. An exhibition filled with the most beautiful black gowns by Givenchy, dressed made of hair by Iris van Herpen, a movie by Gareth Pugh and more.

Not just designs we’ve seen on the catwalk, but also hystorical and traditional black clothing along with the history of the black clothes. Of course, the Little Black Dress by Coco Chanel couldn’t be absent.

There is even, how unruly, a black wedding gown by the brilliant Dutch designers Viktor & Rolf made of black silk satins.

As we see in the art of painting, black  is a genius way of playing with the light. That is way this exhibition closes with the part ‘Meesters van het licht’ (Masters of the light). Outfits made out of feathers, synthetic hair, lace or 3D-creations. That is where you’ll find some genius pieces by Yohji Yamamoto, John Galliano, Patrick van Ommeslaeghe and Alexander McQueen.

Definitely a must-see. If you are under 26 years, the exhibition will only cost you 1 euro.
