People who live in Amsterdam have the habit of thinking ‘everything happens in Amsterdam’. Well folks, last weekend proved me wrong. Stijl Maastricht invited The Digitalistas to visit their fashion show and to experience a true Burgundian night in the beautiful city Maastricht. Without a doubt, this event was happening!

See it shine already? Each year the Cannes Film Festival and amfAR host a charity fashion show and gala. This year’s theme is ‘gold’ and the show is curated by no less than Carine Roitfeld.
Okay, so the Louis Vuitton locomotive was THE eyecatcher of the show a week ago. But is a piece of decor -even for a fashion show– worth spending (reportedly) $8 million??? Maybe as an anti-reaction to the crisis, the luxury brand has no worries for its sales to drop. Still…
Yesterday evening, one of our favourites of the Dutch fashion scene, Claes Iversen, presented his Spring/Summer ’12 collection in an empty office-building. The show started with a short black & white video, featuring the Dutch actress Liz Snoyink.
The theme of the collection is based on the lovestory of a woman and her meticulously composed wardrobe. But it also underlines that fame and wealth go hand in hand with loneliness and transciency. Claes took some famous 5th-Avenue-ladies as an example like Jacky Kennedy, Nan Kempner and Mona von Bismarck; rich, upper-class figureheads, that posessed impressive private couture-collections, and at the same time their lives were marked by loneliness and melancholia.

Oui, oui, it’s Paris Fashion Week! Dutch designer duo Viktor & Rolf presented their latest autumn/winter 2011 collection at the Jardin des Tuileries’s Espace Ephémére. A runway show full of red faces, black and white outfits with a little bit of red. Hilary Alexander (Telegraph) wrote about a futuristic ‘Jurassic Park’ feel, as gleaming short-strapless dresses, jackets and pleated skirts appeared in silver leather, bristling with multiple applications of jagged-edge fins and fans. Well, didn’t we all love that exciting movie back in the days?
We were very eager to see the fashion show of Lhana Marlet, a former intern at Alexander McQqueen’s fashion house. Lhana showed her collection ‘Eva’s Apple Revisited’ last night at the Amsterdam International Fashion Week, a collection inspired by her fabulous mum (and designer of label Eva’s Apple). The Digitalistas met her for a little chat. Want to see the video? Check it out below.
Is it for real?!? We spotted this cute girl before the fashion show of INDIVIDUALS started. Her coat, her scarf, her clutch. And even the scrunchies! Oh dear Lord, The Netherlands has her own Tavi!
Dutch designer Jan Taminiau showed his two collections ‘Jan Taminiau Demi-Couture’ and ‘Jan Taminiau Haute Couture’ during the Amsterdam International Fashion Week’s kick off Wednesday night. The Digitalistas were – ofcourse! – present.
