MoMu Fashion Museum Antwerp: Let me find you a reason to visit Antwerp in Belgium. If you are looking for an answer to the question whether fashion is art, you should definitely visit MoMu until the 1st of April. This selection of the already ongoing exhibition, MoMu Now, includes notable names from the Belgian fashion scene such as Raf Simons, Haider Ackermann, or Ann Demeulemeester, but also younger talents such as Christian Wijnants and Peter Pilotto standing alongside silhouettes donated by major foreign fashion houses such as Balenciaga or Helmut Lang. The MoMu collection consists of approx. 25,000 objects, mainly clothing and accessories, 7,000 of which have been added over the past five years thanks to new purchases, gifts and long-term loans. I guess it calls for an Antwerp trip!
Bianco by Camilla Pihl: Do you guys know Camilla Pihl, one of the favourite Scandi-bloggers of mine? Her latest collaboration with Danish footwear company, Bianco, is still available in selected stores and online, although there is a waiting list. Surprised? We are not, as this stylish woman created the most coveted shoes for fall ever. The range includes black ankle boots made out of suedes and croc leather. “Like every girI I love shoes! Over the years, my blog readers have always commented on my shoes, and shoes have become one of my trademarks, so to have the opportunity to design my dream shoe collection is truly amazing.” – said the blogger in the Press Release. So which style are you ladies gonna go for? I’m personally into the ‘Croco Ankle Boot’ the most.
