Taking a break

Just in time before college starts again, taking a week off to go on holiday is the perfect way to end summer. But it’s also hard, knowing lots of work is coming in the next weeks. It will also be the last time that I take all my shorts, summer Tees and slides with me: packing was never so easy.

The sun here, in Valencia, is always shining and especially burning your skin. So you can’t avoid going to beach for some cooling. For this trip to the sea, I just took my new vintage Adidas shorts, a white Tee and slides. Plus, I also got my backpack with me to carry some other stuff.

Outfit upgrade

Normally, I prefer an outfit that is effortless and comfortable. However, this time is different because going a wedding needs a little extra. No skinny black jeans with trainers for me, but a more thoughtful outfit. I replaced the jeans by dark blue suit pants, which come a little bit above my ankle. Underneath, I matched it with my white Acne shoes.

Also no classic white shirt for me, but a little bit oversized T-shirt. I’m not the person that goes to a wedding in a full costume, but I like a funny twist in my outfit.

Talking with Ken Thaodee

Rooms dedicated to work are most of the time a mess. But I think the mess makes it cozy. That moment when you move your stuff from your bed to the desk and the morning after you move everything back to the bed just brings a productive feeling. I think a lot of us recognize this.

This time I brought my camera with me to Ken’s studio in the center of Antwerp. I already dedicated a post to Ken’s work. He studies Fashion and you could also just read that from the pictures. I love the white space with the beautiful wooden floor that ensures that the personal

touches grab your attention. And again you see the humorous things just like in Ken’s collections.

But after talking about his designing skills in fashion and interior, his personal styling is not to forget. Playing with colors and proportions also pops up again. I always admitted people who create their own world with their styling.

Early season change

As you know or not, the sun has disappeared in Belgium. It’s over with the shorts, T-shirts and open shoes. Even that cold, I had to take my winter boots and jeans out. But you don’t hear me complaining about that. For my outfits, I prefer winter dressing instead of summer dressing. I can finally go into old habits: layering.

I’m using my basic bottoms here. As every winter a pair of Original Clarks shoes are a key piece for me. They fit perfect on a skinny Levi’s jeans. And everything just fits on a jeans and Clark boots, like this grey tee and jeans jacket from Scotch & Soda.

Wander day

There is nothing better than walking through galleries on a lazy and hot day. Not far away but in your hometown. Being a tourist in your hometown always brings you surprising things like good expositions. The last free, lazy and hot day I went to the local centrum for actual art, Z33.

Paper-Scissors-Stone is the first big solo exhibition of Leon Vranken. In his work we see a game (Stone beats scissors, scissors beats paper and

paper beats stone) with materials. He cuts through buildings, objects and two-dimensional elements. Sculptures are out of balance. At the end, there is only the essence, the line, just like the outcome of the game, unpredictable.
