“There has been a complete change this year. Do I think, as a publicist, that I now have to have my eye on some kid who’s writing a blog in Oklahoma as much as I do on an editor from Vogue? Absolutely. Because once they write something on the Internet, it’s never coming down. And it’s the first thing a designer is going to see.”
A quote by Kelly Cutrone, who has been organizing fashion shows since 1987.

The two most popular women of 2009 became one. What? Yes, we’re not kidding! Look at the picture above and you know what we mean. Lady Gaga sized down… The little Gaga Barbie doll looks very eehm…cute? (No, that’s not a good word for naked boobies covered up with some black tape.) Oke, fierce then! And despite of the fact that we had an overdosis Barbie and Gaga this year, we still love the combination of those two.
Kids say the most funny things! I love their foolish and straight to the point attitude. They say what they think without wondering if it is a bad thing to say. Very honest and most of the time very funny. Like for example the little nephew of Garance Dore.
Couture-pieces are precious and delicate, so try and find occasions- besides parties and galas- to wear these frocks, not easy! Elle Italia has found a new way to wear couture. While rollerblading! You wouldn’t come up with that one right?
Photographer Alexei Hay put model Liya Kebede on rollerblades, and this is the wonderful result….
Digitalista E. has a Starbucks addiction. Digitalista K. almost has one, especially for the skinny vanilla latte. Imagine if more Starbucks were coming to Amsterdam. (we only have one at Central Station)
We found a stylish solution to hold your sizzling hot Starbucks cup, designed by Azumi and David. It’s a muff that comes in gold, silver or black.
Someone at the Fash Pack got his hands on the lookbook of the Sonia Rykiel for H&M knitwear collection, set to be launched in February. And thanks to our sharp eye gazing through the net, we can give you a preview of that lookbook.
First of all, we love this young version of Sonia with the same voluminous red hairdo. It enhances the playful and colourful collection featuring sweet dresses, shorts, a jumpsuit and striped jumpers. No Rykiel without the stripes!
It seems to be a new trend in Fashionland to make short movies to introduce a product, and the use of iconic actresses to do so. Think of Audrey Tautou for Chanel, Marion Cotillard for Dior and now Christina Ricci for Donna Karan.
Parisian palace of delicacies, Ladurée is well known outside Paris for its refined pastry, and especially macarons. And we must admit that besides adoring cupcakes, macarons are also delicious.
Did you ever taste macarons tasting like cotton candy? No, then you’ll have to try these. Especially for Colette, Ladurée made macarons with cotton candy flavour, and they come in a charming box with polkadots.
