Amsterdam Fashion Week
Monday, 26 January 2015
Transparency is the keyword for Tony Cohens new collection. Leather, lace and consumers fur garments and colors black, grey and navy dominate both women- and menswear collections.
Cohen showed the new collection at Mercedes-Benz Amsterdam Fashion Week this weekend. His inspiration was directly translated to the collection. The idea for the collection came from his own need to be accessible to everyone. Personally I am in love with the simple yet sexy cuts of both collections.

Barbara Langendijk may not be known very well yet, but I'm convinced that this collection is going to wow. The new collection was inspired by a long trip Barbara to Japan. The culture, music, fashion, garments and people inspired her. The designer tries to avoid the conservative way of designing and working, and tests different options to achieve the same effect. For instance, this collection she used a roll-off system to create texture and volume in the clothes. The earth colors shocked by red make her collection accessible to a wide range costumers. Long skirts, nipple-free tops and bare backs are key words for the collection. The young designer absolutely achieved her goals.

Another postcard from Vienna.
This is a platz near the Hofburg, where princess Sissi used to live. The city is awfully cold. Everyone is walking around in thick coats, gloves, ear warmers or hats and scarves. The cold creates this cosy and Christmas feeling. It gets dark very soon, around 15.30-16.00, and that's when you'll notice how the Vienna is decorated. Almost everywhere you'll go you'll find either a Christmas tree or a Christmas market.
