Ilja Visser showed us her new collections during an intimate lunch. An interesting part of the lunch was the color-theme: many shades of white. Gazpacho soup, cold rice salad with vegetables and a panacotta dessert, white was the main color. Blending perfectly with the decoration on the table.
Having a color theme is a good idea when you’re hosting a dinner. It gives you the possibility to be creative in many ways. Think of how challenging it would be if you don’t use any artificial food colouring. Just get that mind of yours working. For now here’s some inspiration>>>

Did you actually know that shooting hoops is the second most popular sport in China? We didn’t. And it inspired the designers from Nike to re-invent the Hyperfuse basketball sneaker. It is now a seamless state of the art shoe, not only to play ball, but also to show off your early adoptive sporty side. Watch Shane Kohatsu -innovation lead for Nike Basketball- explain the new design:
Some other things we learned at the presentation:
1. If singer/songwriter Alain Clark had not taken the musical path, he would have dreamt of becoming an NBA basketballer.
2. Magic always happens in the KITCHEN. Ha! Told you so!

Time flies when you’re having fun. Last weekend it was Lowlands-time again. But slightly different than the past years for Digi K. This time she really went camping… There has to be a first time for everything, right? For 2,5 days she wandered around the Lowlands-premises on her All Stars Converse. Having fun with her friends, watching bands and artists perform like The Roots, Lykke Li and Jamie Woon, and chilling at the Converse Compound.
A photo-diary after the jump….

Enjoy H&M‘s Autumn/Winter styles. Featured in the video are model Karlie Kloss, Anne-Sofie Johansson (head of design at H&M) and Nathalie Hartley (editor from InStyle magazine).
We like: the retro feel, the camel coat and eggshell cape, the knitwear, the warm tones and the oversized parka. What about you?
Does it always feels like 24 hours in a day isn’t enough? Do you have the idea your job isn’t satisfying anymore? Do you want to find your Mr. Big, getting married, buy a grown up people house, having kids and a successful career, traveling around the world, make a bestseller…. and all of that BEFORE you turn 30? Well, we think you have the twenty something blues. No worries! See it as a gift. Live in the ‘here and now’. That why it’s called ‘the present’.
