Day 2 of my report from London during London Fashion Week 2010

DAY 2
Almost the entire day was spend in the gallery along with Mada van Gaans, Bas Kosters, Non by Kim and employees of the Dutch Fashion Foundation. The rainy weather did not stop us from exploring the well known Dover Street Market at the end of the day. Little did we know, that Dover Street Market was not that known by the folks on the streets, which made it a little harder to find.  Nevertheless, we were unstoppable.  

WINDOW SHOPPING
We were asthonished by the beautiful shops at Bondstreet (Mulberry! Miu Miu! Chanel!) and got overexited by the beautiful windows. Dover Street Market was a pleasure for the eye aswell. The beautiful garments by Comme des Garçons, Peter Pilotto, Azzedine Alaia, Hussein Chalayan and Lanvin in combination with the explicit shoes by Pierre Hardy got our creative minds work.  

VINTAGE
When in London, you can’t go without at least one visit to a vintage store. Tired of strolling around through the rain, we took a cab to Brick Lane: a street filled with vintage shops and all sorts of cute restaurants and bars. And not just that, there were also lots of boutiques with a special range of diversity of labels like Margiela, Balenciage and more.  

DINNERTIME
Of course, we enjoyed a typical English meal once again (pizza…) we got into a biological Italian restaurant that was a interiour shop aswell. Along with the Dutch designers we enjoyed our very tasty light pizza. Mmm! 

BEDTIME
All in all: a day in sign of research. Fabrics, labels, windows and stores where Dutch design would fit well!

Today I read an article on Valetmag.com about vintage clothes that I have to share with you. I’m a fan of vintage. The clothes are pretty unique, most of the times. Besides that, with the whole upcoming trend of fur coates, you can better buy a vintage fur coat than a new one. A fake fur one is always better, of course.

Back to the vintage clothes. Valetmag gives it’s readers a tip that I’ve never heard of. Here it comes: “All you have to do is mix one part vodka with two parts water in a spray bottle,” says Janie Bryant, the costume designer for Mad Men. “It works every time—that’s the power of vodka for you.”

It should totally remove every dull or nasty smell there is on the clothes. Now that’s a good tip!

Being ‘green’ isn’t something for dull, whitebearded, socks-in-sandals wearing men anymore. Yves Saint Laurent, as always on top of the trends, came up with a new fashionable yet environmentally-conscious concept.

YSL is launching a new capsule-collection called New Vintage II. The idea? They make new dresses out of vintage fabrics, old cuts and silhouettes and unused designs to create a new limited series of dresses.

 There are 121 pieces total right now sold at YSL flagship boutiques in Paris, London and New York. Haven’t had a trip to Paris planned yet? Now you do! Oh, when you are visiting Paris, make sure you pick up some of those Lanvin Stamps!
