Manchester

test

A few weekends ago we were invited by Young Creative Chevrolet for a trip to Manchester. Young Creative Chevrolet is the art contest in which we have been part of the jury for the past two years. This year our Belgian winner in the category of Visual Art , Siska Mingneau, came in 3th in the international competition. The assignment was to transform the Chevrolet Aveo into a vehicle that could transport every die-hard Manchester United fan to the game. Siska’s design was inspired by the Do It Yourself trend. By coating the car with chalk paint, the Manchester fans can leave a message to everybody that drives by. We got the chance to celebrate Siska’s performance in Manchester together with all the other international candidates. We enjoyed a weekend filled with a tour of the Old Trafford stadium, a Manchester United football game and amazing food and drinks. When we walked around Manchester, we noticed something very shocking as streetstylebloggers. Don’t worry, we got everything on camera and will report on this soon.

Contemporary Fashion Days

CFD-Map-FFI-stockverkoop-stocksale

It’s time for the annual Contemporary Fashion Days, also known as the stocksales. Between 6 and 10 November 42 Belgian labels are selling their stock and samples in Antwerp, for only a fraction of the shop value. The offer ranges from topdesigners Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester to smaller labels, from accessories and shoes, to clothing for men, women and children.

Flanders Fashion Institute or FFI collects all this information and creates a CFD plan, that can be found in all fashion places in Antwerp. Those that can not get their hands on a physical plan, can find the information in their free ‘Guide To Belgian Fashion‘ application, the perfect tool to plan a fun day of shopping. Talk about perfect timing with the long weekend coming up! Nederlands >>

The Opposites

test

We suddenly got a call from Gill from AK Culture. He asked how we felt about interviewing The Opposites. The students of Leuven would be welcomed with performances by Safi & Spreej, DJ Dysfunctional and of course The Opposites. Completely stunned and slightly nervous we started preparing some questions.

‘When I think of Belgians I always think of Kickers. I used to have neighbors with Belgian family and every time they came to visit, they were wearing Kickers shoes.’ Before we realized it, the interview started. Their answer to the question what identifies their style was ‘the duoscarf’ and they wrapped themselves together in a black and white Ikea blanket that was lying around. It’s obvious that Big Two and Willem De Bruin love a good joke and they love to share these pranks on Social Media. ‘Our openness to our fans comes naturally. But like in our videos, you only get to see a part of our life. We base the clips on our life experiences, but of course with a certain artistic freedom.’ Even tough they do not follow any fashion blogs, they jokingly call themselves fashionista’s. ‘But our matching Nikes were pure coincidence!’ they assure us.

In a flash the interview was over. After the obligatory Instagramshots, Bram got free game to shot the duo backstage, only a few minutes before they got on stage. That’s where they showed us why for years thay have been one on the most influential hip hop bands of the lowlands. With hits as Broodje Bakpao and Thunder they are bringing back Thunderdome and we are happy about this. The Nineties are officially back!

Streetstyle at Fashion Talks

test

Last week, the first edition of Fashion Talks, the fashion conference organized by Flanders Fashion Institute took place. Visitors were treated to a day filled with lectures by Chris Snyder, Stephen Burell and fashion journalist Tim Blanks and a visit from Queen Mathilde. Everybody from the Belgian Fashion scene was present or wanted to be present. This is why we organized a collaboration with FFI, to go streetstyling during the conference. That way you can get an idea of the atmosphere that day. One this is certain, it won’t be the last edition of Fashion Talks!
