LIKE TO HAVE: DAISY KROON S/S COLLECTION

January 21, 2011

Daisy Kroon is a fashion designer from Rotterdam. Well that’s one thing I like, because I live there as well. But when I was introduced to her new collection I had to have it all. Simple, minimalistic and a beautiful combination of blue and brown. Inspiration came from a trip to Sweden when she was just a child. I also love the way she presented the clothes in the jungle like surroundings. Daisy Kroon is sold at Wendela van Dijk and Nen Xavier in Rotterdam and at Soepboer&Stooker in Amsterdam.

NEW SPOT: DE STADSKANTINE AMSTERDAM

TRIED & TESTED: NEVY AMSTERDAM

November 29, 2010

Most striking feature:

The restaurant is build directly on the water and because this is a fish restaurant, physically speaking, you can see the fish swim where you’re sitting. Well we don’t live in the Cariben so the water is not so clear but hey, you need to have a little imagination. I visited Nevy during the opening in 2008 and I know that I’ve tried some of the best sushi on their raw bar and some oysters at the entrance.

This december chef Tom Aikens left his London home to prepare a three (40 euro) and four (50 euro) course meal for Nevy. Aikens is known for his excellent fish preparations. Till 19 december.

TRIED & TESTED: LABELS AMSTERDAM

November 28, 2010

Most striking feature:

Shopping for great items on a reasonable budget. This is the place to go at the Utrechtsestraat if you want to do some serious shopping. I’ve spotted some dresses, a nice jacket with big shoulders and more for around 60 euro per item. And I discovered the brand Mina UK (what happens to be a favorite of Sienna Miller – and is she a style icon or what?) with beautiful dresses and tops. What are you waiting for? Go!
