TRIED & TESTED: SKIING IN RUKA

December 21, 2010

Saturday afternoon I tried some skiing. I did some skiing years ago in Austria and Switzerland, but I got hooked on it again. I like fast sports, I like the cold (because you’re moving, you’re not so cold) and I like the surroundings. The beautiful nature. And in Ruka in Lapland it’s so quiet. It’s really a paradise for ski-lovers.

MARLIES DEKKERS SHOW IN LAPLAND

December 20, 2010


Marlies Dekkers invited me on the trip to Lapland. Apart from all the great and fun activities we did, the fall 2011 Fashion Show was planned on saturday evening.┬áThe bus took us to a cottage in the middle of a forest. Imagine this: candle light dinner, reindeer skin, everyone dressed up by the dresscode ‘roaring twenties’, Mathilde Santing singing. Romantism all over the place. Not quite a coincidence because the new collection of Marlies Dekkers told us her love story. She is deeply in love and while her man wrote her a song (which Mathilde Santing sang) she dedicated this collection to him.

After this we learned that the brand Marlies Dekkers is, from now on, divided into two brands: the haute couture line marlies | dekkers and the younger, cool brand called Undressed. To speak in images: Lady Gaga would go for option one (a bit more extravagant), I will go for the second one (a bit more minimalistic). I love the new typography. And if Marlies Dekkers uses my body as a canvas with her designs I will be sure to feel like a foxy, fashionable lady. Even underneath my clothes.

ON THE ROAD: LAPLAND

December 16, 2010

This afternoon I’m flying to Lapland: home to Santa Claus. I’ve never been there but this last week I can’t stop thinking about it. About the temperature (-20 celcius, can I handle that?), the nature, the reindeers and the sun (is she there or does it feels like night the whole day?). But I’m also looking forward to the purpose of this trip: Marlies Dekkers is taking me. Marlies Dekkers is the queen of lingerie and she is going to show us (the press) her newest collection. I will be back home this Sunday but I won’t be publishing anything till Monday (and that would be my report about this freezing, but wonderful, experience in Lapland).

Have you been to Lapland? What was your experience?
