Jonas Splinternet

test

As we mentioned before, Bram and I will be guests on the new TV-program Splinternet. And yes! Tonight is the night! This evening you will see us streetstyling Lore and Jonas, aka Bockie De Repper. The crazy splinternetcrew invited us to their container to see us streetstyle life in action. We chose Jonas with his love for flashy prints. In Jonas’ opinion, fashion and a sense of humor go hand in hand. So don’t forget to put up 2BE tonight at 19h55 and check it out!

Zoals we al eerder vermelden, zullen Bram en ik te zien zijn op het nieuwe programma Splinternet. And yes! Tonight is the night! Vanavond kan je zien hoe we Lore en Jonas aka Bockie De Repper streetstylen. De gekke splinternetcrew nodigde ons namelijk uit naar hun container om onze ‘life streetstyle’ vast te leggen. We hadden er onmiddellijk Jonas uitgekozen met zijn liefde voor zotte prints. Mode en humor gaan voor hem namelijk hand in hand. Stem dus vanavond om 19u55 af op 2BE and check it out!

Lore from Splinternet

test

Next week, a brand new TV show called Splinternet will start on 2BE. A young team of six web-tourists will make a daily selection of what they find inspiring and fascinating online. We cannot reveal much yet but can already tell you that Ghent Street Style will pay a visit to the Splinternet container. Do not worry, we’ll keep you informed when this episode will be aired.

In the meantime, we can get you acquainted with Lore. Lore is the editor of the Splinternet team and a real vintage addict. The suit that she is wearing is a lucky find, namely an original Pierre Cardin. Lore loves to combine vintage pieces with modern design and by the look of it she does it well!

Suit: Vintage Pierre Cardin
Shoes: Vintage
Rings: gift from mother and Carine Vyfeyken

Minju Kim for H&M

test

We all know that H&M and collaborations are a perfect match. We’ve all stood in line for their annual collabs with big brands such as Marni, Margiela or Roberto Cavalli. But H&M doesn’t forget about young talent. Every year they organise the Design Award and this year the winner is Minju Kim, a student at the Fashion Academy in Antwerp with Korean roots. We got the opportunity to meet this promising young designer and take a look at her collection and were both very impressed. Not only is Minju incredibly friendly, her collection turned out beautifully with candy coloured, voluminous silhouettes.
Minju’s source of inspiration was the author Junji Ito and his Manga novels. She loves to dive into his world of black and white drawings and give them her own colourful interpretation. As a designer it was difficult to simplify her collection so it could be commercially produced by H&M, because she never thought real people would wear her collection on the street. Her favourite piece is the monster yellow coat with detachable back. She had to fight really hard to keep this one in the collection. Minju also loves the T-shirts with her drawings on them. It’s the most commercial and wearable piece in this collection but she is very pleased with the result.
Minju’s collection will be available from the 17th of October in Brussels and Antwerp, but sadly not in Ghent! Anyhow, we advise you to make a little roadtrip for this collection because it is just too good. We can assure you the fabrics are really beautiful and qualitative and the prices are very reasonable! Thank you Minju Kim and H&M for the amazing interview and the great afternoon! Now it’s hoping I can get my hands on that sweater…

Laetitia

test

A few weeks back, we paid a visit to Antwerp for the Antwerp Fashion Festival. Spread all over town, you could score special discounts, visit blogger closet sales and find great afterparties to finish a day of shopping. We paid a visit to the Pinko boutique and were suprised by Laetitia’s style: elegant and feminine, but with visible influences from the male wardrobe, which is suspected to be one of the main trends for this fall. This look is easy to copy: invest in some manly pieces (or just pay a visit to your local vintage store) and combine them with basics, such as a black skinny and chelsea boots. Laetitia is a true vintage addict, mainly because of the economical aspect. Laetitia is a very creative person: she studies graphic design, sings, plays the violin and the piano, paints and is a model. So she prefers to put her money in new instruments or painting supplies instead of clothes. It’s all about setting priorities!

2de Hands & Tiany

test

As you guys already noticed in the teaser, we were guests in the beautiful loft of 2dehands.be as part of a collaboration with fashionista Tiany Kiriloff. Tiany got the chance to look for bargains on this auction site and this quest was recorded in several short films, in which she gives all sorts of tips on shopping and selling on 2dehands.be. It seems as if she really got the hang of it, looking at all the treasures she collected, including a Chanel 2.55, Kenzo shoes, clothing from Dries Van Noten, a clutch of Yves Saint Laurent and (my personal favorite) a beautiful winter coat by Sandro. All of this cost no more than 4.000 euros! So be sure take a look at this bargain site and, while you’re there take a look at my personal page! I’m cleaning my wardrobe, so expect a lot of updates during the next few weeks!
