Once upon a time… there was a beautiful boutique in the middle of the most luxurious street in Amsterdam. Looking like a real palace with all white gold interior, huge windows and beautiful roses. A few weeks ago I had the chance to enter this romantic little shopping-heaven at the Dior boutique, and I was blown away. A day of fittings for some exciting upcoming events and it actually felt like a fairy tale.
The ready to wear spring/summer collection for 2014, designed by Raf Simons, inspired me a lot. It sure was one of the best shown collections during fashion week last year. Not only did the collection amaze me but also the concept behind it.
Raf Simons envisioned a whole new women for this new collection which intrigued me. Just like he said, “I wanted to feel that you wouldn’t know quite where these women were coming from and where they were going to, that they exist in a new place of change and possibility.” That’s just where my blog and I stand for: always trying to learn, be inspired, create and do new things to inspire the people around us. So I felt very blessed to collaborate with the Dior-team in Amsterdam for this special fitting, and as you can see the styling results are stunning. What I loved most about the items we've chosen is the recognisable and characteristic Dior-look, but with innovative and creative sparks at the same time.
We came up with four different ensembles, suitable for four different occasions. From a Parisian Chic look to cocktail, and more casual looks with an unexpected touch. I was head over heels with the silver metallic heels combined with the see through jumper and bright yellow skirt. I'm ready for the upcoming events! A
