EAT | DRINK | SHOP | THINK at Hotel Droog A’dam

This spring we got the chance to enjoy a lovely weekend at Hotel Droog, Amsterdam.
A little designheaven in the midst of Amsterdam with a stunning view over the rooftops of Amsterdam, fully equiped with a little kitchen, bedroom, livingspace, all totally filled with beautiful Dutch design. The hotel is part of a multi-space location that opened its’ doors in 2012 and has become the destination for a drink and a bite in the beautiful cafe, to do some exclusive shopping in the store filled with wonderful brands, or to be inspired by exhibitions in the courtyard and finish the day with a stroll through the fairytale garden. A perfect place for a dreamy weekend in Amsterdam!

OBJECTS WITH A STORY…

SABELLAR X SPONS vormgevers

Last month a dream of one of our clients from Spain came true with opening her wonderful online conceptstore ‘SABELLAR’, a fashion and decoration concept store, in tribute to the Mediterranean way of life. We were honoured to be working on their visual identity with these images we shot and styled, as we share the same values. Like craftmanship, authenticity, a choice for honest production, fair to every chain in the process. All handmade with love, mostly by local artisans, often teached by generations of families into products which provoke a feeling of happiness. Created with a soul…

To wear…to eat…to enjoy!

‘A CELEBRATION OF SPRING’

Spring deserves to be celebrated. And what better way than to do it exuberantly with ranunculus, the springflower ‘pur sang’ This delicate beauty is available in white, yellow, orange, pink, red and purple. Its petals open up piece by piece, so you can slowly day by day see more and more of her beautiful heart.

Did you know that the buttercup symbolizes charm? When someone gifted a ranunculus in Victorian times, then he said: “I think you’re full of attractions. Oh, those were the romantic days…

LIVE YOUR DREAM

On one of the first days of this brand new year 2017 filled with blank pages, i like to share a dreamjob i was lucky to work on by the end of last year. A collaboration with Little Creative Factory, a wonderful childrenswear brand from Barcelona, Spain. Just as last summer we were asked to shoot images of their gorgeous wintercollection. This brand is all about making dreams come true, so with a grateful heart we styled and shot these images.

‘A DIFFERENT VISION ON FASHIONPHOTOGRAPHY’ – exhibition Kunsthal

Last weekend on a stormy autumn sunday i visited the wonderful exhibition of Peter Lindbergh, one of the most influential fashion photographers of the past forty years. The exhibition ‘A Different Vision on Fashion Photography’ is an ode to Lindbergh’s oeuvre from 1978 to the present day. It features more than 220 photographs. This spectacular overview of Lindbergh’s extensive oeuvre also presents exclusive material varying from previously unseen material from personal notes, storyboards, props, polaroids, contact sheets and films to monumental prints, in a large-scale retrospective of the photographer’s work. Ever since i started studying fashion his pure black-white photographs have been my favorites. So all the reason to visit his first ever exhibition in Holland at the ‘Kunsthal’ Rotterdam.

Peter Lindbergh introduced a new realism into photography. His timeless images redefine the norms of beauty. Influenced by the language of film and by playing with the type of the strong, self-willed women. His portraits radiate a certain lack of inhibition and physical grace. This humanist approach and idealization of women set him apart from the other photographers as he prioritizes the soul and the personality. His vision presents them in their pure state, ‘in all honesty’, avoiding all stereotypes as he favours a face with hardly any make-up, bare in a way that enhances the authenticity and the natural beauty of the women he photographs.

As British journalist Suzy Menkes points out “refusing to bow to glossy perfection is Peter Lindbergh’s trademark – the essence of the images that look into each person’s unvarnished soul, however familiar or famous the sitter.”

‘MY FAVORITE FLOWER’

FOR THE NEW ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN OF BLOEMENBUREAU HOLLAND

Last week we were asked to collaborate and shoot an image for a new advertising campaign for Bloemenbureau Holland, called #lievelingsbloem or ‘My favorite flower’. Since nature and flowers are one of our biggest inspirations that was an absolute dreamjob to style and shoot. Lucky us, we just got a lovely gift that week after a shoot in Amsterdam, so these colchicum bulbs, one of Autumn delights’ for sure, were perfect for this occasion. Not only because of their promising beauty, but also as a reminder that sometimes on the least expected moments in life you’re fortunate enough to meet people that give you wings…
