Let’s explore with Palladium

test

 Everyone has those brands that bring up a lot of memories from their childhood. To me one of the most important brands is Palladium. Our family had the habit to travel to all kinds of far and exotic destinations every summer. For one month we went back to basics and explored countries such as Sri Lanka, Haiti, Ecuador, Malaysia, Botswana, Uganda,… Every summer a different destination and a new adventure. A pair of Palladium boots was a true companion during all those hiking trips through the dessert of Morocco, the jungle in Ecuador or the savannah in Botswana. I have worn out countless pairs, just as my parents and my sister. I couldn’t be happier that this classic is now making a comeback. If you haven’t noticed, Palladiums are hot and this makes me rediscover the brand. This time, I decided to pick a black pair. They will be my companions this summer during festivals, our big trip planned to Indonesia and all my next exploring adventures!

Joan

test

It’s my personal believe that style is something that runs in the family. It probably has to do with education. If you are around parents or siblings that pay a lot of attention to detail and aesthetics you probably have a greater possibility of sharing that interest. Anyway: one of the greatest things is to have a sibling that shares the same interests as you. This is the case of Joan, little sister of Gladys. Just like Gladys she has a very interesting personal style and is extremely creative. She is actually a vital part of Gladys’ blog since Joan is the one behind the camera. And if you see her work, you can tell she is already very talented for someone who’s only 16 years old. We can’t wait to see how she will evolve in the future!

Minju Kim

test

To our great surprise we ran into Minju Kim at the fashion show of the KASK. You may recognize her as the winner of the H&M Design award 2013. She got the opportunity to design her own collection for H&M. It turned into a great success. The collection was sold out in a few moments. Minju studied at the Fashion Academy of Antwerp, but is originally from South Korea. She is one of those designers whose personal style is a clear reflection of her designs. She is wearing shoes of her own design and a top by a local Korean designer. Let’s stop for a second to focus on het beautiful plexi Delvaux bag. I’m jealous already! Belgian designer Eddy Anemian, a 24-year old student at La Cambre, won this year’s H&M Design award. We can’t wait for his collection to hit stores!

Shoes: Minju Kim
Pants: COS
Shirt: Au Jour Le Jour

Sander

test

Menswear is without a doubt more challenging than womenswear. The options are a lot more limited and this in all price segments. Therefore Sander gives a good example of a perfect look for a hot summer day. The printed denim shirt gives a modern twist to the classic denim on denim look. In combination with the white canvas sneakers and the statement glasses, this look really comes together. Sander works at the communications agency Gents and loves to get creative in his free time. Interior DIY’s are one of his favorite hobbies. You can read all about it on his Tumblr page. He also has a huge passion for tattoos. He already got three and is planning to get even more. We are curious to know what you think about tattoos? Hot or not? Or a more important question: timeless or just a temporary trend?

 Glasses: Trussardi
Shirt: River Island
Jeans: Scotch & Soda
Schoes: Vans
Belt: from Morocco

Angelique Foré

test

Belmodo is a Belgian pioneer on everything that’s happening online. The lifestyle newssite already exists over 5 years now and has just taken a huge step forward by closing a deal with Borgerhoff & Lamberigts (B&L). So it’s about time we introduced you to Angelique, partner of Belmodo but most of all a very cool chick. The outfit she is wearing here is a mix of statement pieces. That’s why we decided to photograph her on the empty catwalk after the KASK fashion show. The electric blue perforated skirt is a true eyecatcher, but you have to choose your underwear wisely. “My pink fluo panties was one step too far.” she jokes. Angelique loves combining high end labels with cheaper pieces. “No matter what day or occasion it is, I notice that I’m always wearing something from H&M.” And indeed, her clutch is from the conscious collection!

Clutch: H&M Conscious
Skirt: Michael Kors
Shoes: Dries Van Noten
T-shirt: Comptoir Des Cotonniers
Jacket: Essentiel (sample)
Bracelet: Magali Pinchasi
Watch: Casio
Ring: Isabelle Lenfant
