Left: Angie really loves horses...Right: Akris greige Ai horsehair bag

Horses also get haircuts…

…And still Angelina Jolie wanted to be sure that no animal was harmed for the sake of her just purchased ¢5000,- Akris bag. Respect.

The bags of the Swiss fashion brand (they just released an accessories range this year) are all made of ponyhair. Not just ordinary ponies, but Mongolian nomadic horses (I guess they’re more hairy?) who just had their annual haircut.

Digitalista M. likes: mint colored sneakers from Nike

Even if I wear heels most of the time, I can fall in love with sneakers. Like for example these cool mint colored Nike Air Royal Mid VT sneakers.  Aren’t these pastel candies cool for easter? Or what about this purple-on-purple monochrome explosion? The Air Royal Mid VT’s are constructed from a special synthetic that makes everything pop.

Digitalistic Tunes: Micky Green

“Oh Micky you’re so fine, you’re so fine, you blow our mind, hé Micky!’ We could ‘ve written that famous line, after listening the new single T.L. from Paris-based singer Micky Green. Who she is? A blond style-icon and former muse of Karl Lagerfeld. What she makes? Think groovy, jazzy, vintage and poppy songs!

Dutch Face

Supporting our local heroes: model Melissa Tammerijn

The market of Dutch models is a very successful market. Not only Doutzen and Lara are doing fine year after year, but a whole group of young, fresh and most of the time blond girls are shining on the international runways, ads. and magazines. The most freshly face of today is Melissa Tammerijn. ‘That Dutch power strikes again!’

Chanel denim quilted sneaker

Catch of the Day: Chanel quilted denim sneakers

While M. and I are still drooling over my friend L.’s Chanel 2:55, we have to find a more affordable alternative until we can buy one ourselves. This might come in the shape of this Chanel denim quilted sneaker. Okay, it’s not a bag, but the fact that these sneakers are quilted, makes us feel a bit closer to the o so wanted bag…(or it could be a form of wishful thinking).

The sneakers also show some similarities with the Ked’s, but let’s be honest, these are Chanel, and that’s way cooler!

Shake, shake, shake…shake your booty Christian Louboutin!

Who did ever imagine that the old man Christian Louboutin can dance? In a short movie he shows us that shaking his booty is just as normal as designing shoes!  In the exclusive movie ‘Dancer in a Daydream’ he dons his red soles  jazz shoes for website Fashionair. Looking good Christian!  Wanna try a dance with me? Watch a sneak peak below.
