THE CIRCLE OF FASHION

Posted in Fashion by stylecouch on April 30, 2009

You do not have to be that old to feel the life circle of fashion… It is also a nice excuse of keeping your closet loaded instead of sorting out…however that is necessary once in a while. However, certain items are definitely keepers!! At the moment I am happy that I kept my sailor striped t-shirts and the laced vintage skirt!!!

STEVEN MEISEL

Posted in Fashion, Photo by stylecouch on April 29, 2009

Many of my favorites and most inspiring photos are shot by the American photographer Steven Meisel – very often for US and Italian vogue – but among them also beautiful pictures of his friend Madonna and the latest campaign for Lanvin.

Diane Steverlynck  is a Belgium designer who studied textile design at La Cambre National School of Visual Art in Brussels. 6 years ago she opened her own studio in Brussels, presenting textiles and objects with passion and history. I fell in love with these cool puzzle style taborets made of raw wooden pieces kept together with coloured rope. A functional but very decorative design! More information on www.dianesteverlynck.be

Revival of the skinny leather belt

Posted in Fashion by stylecouch on April 23, 2009

Belts are really strong in the fashion scene again. For the played down but cool and chick look with chinos and no socks in the shoes – which is one of  the advantages of the spring time I really love!, I would definitely go for the very narrow belt. The minimalistic ones are available in many cool colours – but also the rivets are still essential for the rockability look! I like Chloe’s styling with feminine flounce blouses or military inspired shirt with golden buttons! YouHeShe and Net a Porter have many cool ones. For budget shopping I can suggest Second Hand shops which still have lot of them at extremely reasonable prices – happy hunting!

STAY IN THE ORIGINAL BAUHAUS RESIDENCE

Posted in Art, Travel by stylecouch on April 21, 2009

One of the famous Bauhaus schools is now transferred into a trendy hotel. The hotel is located in the former East Germany, Dessau in the asymmetric concrete  building is designed in 1925 by Walter Gropius himself – he was the founder of the Bauhaus school of design. The building was closed in 1933, during the Nazi regime who saw it as un-German and too influenced by cosmopolitan modernism.

The minimalistic building has colour high lights as orange walls, yellow ceilings and red furniture. Breakfast is served in the original canteen where the students used to eat – the chairs are designed by the most famous student at the school, Marcel Breuer.

Spring and sun means ice cream to me!!! Why not do that with style? Hansens Flødeis, which started back in 1922 has the coolest design – and extremely good ice cream not to forget!
