A little stylish birdie at work pointed me in the direction of Essentiel’s newest collection, I took a peek, and down the rabbit hole I went! After their previous cheeky Bashful collaboration, Disney and Essentiel teamed up again, this time on a limited edition Alice In Wonderland Collection. The whimsical, wonderful world of Wonderland has been translated into bright pop-art pieces, sweet-but-cheeky t-shirts and graphic prints. Alice, Mad Hatter and White Rabbit, I’d love you all, but the Cheshire Cat pieces are the ones I really want to get lost with! Take a trip down the rabbit hole for my favourite pieces Available now online and in Essentiel stores. Pictures courtesy of Essentiel
What better way to start my week than a spot of breaking news! Swedish fashion giant has just announced their latest collaboration partner for their annual capsule collection, and this year, Balmain will be bringing their glamourous magic to to the masses with a collection for H&M that will include women’s and men’s clothes, shoes, and accessories. Mark your calendars, book in a day off and be sure to head to H&M (or hit the web) on November 5! The collab will then be available on the company’s e-commerce site and in stores worldwide.
Disney came a-knockin’ on the door of Essentiel, the trend-driven, endgy and urban prime of Belgian fashion, and Inge Onsea and her team more than happily obliged. Together they came up with this urban fairytale of a collection, with the sweet Bashful – one of Snow White’s Seven Dwarfs – as the center of attention. His sweet half smile and cute blushing cheeks have made him an iconic Disney figure, and now grace the white and soft grey pieces of this collection. Bashful contrasting with big, colourful sequins, a slauchy, casual sweater over a structured neoprene skater skirt, or the complementing neoprenen top with it’s golden flower appliqué, nothing is too crazy for Spring! A touch of weekend casual for a Saturday shopping trip, a touch of fashion for coffee with the ladies or full on fashionata, these pieces cater to your every sartorial wish Ohhhh, go-o-o-osh… The Bashful Collection is available from this week at Essentiel stores or via http://www.essentiel-antwerp.com.com
Just found your dream place and looking for that perfect piece of furniture that will give it that contemporary yet timeless touch? Spruce it up a bit, add a bit of fashion to that Ikea collective you already have? How about some Alexander Wang for your living room? Besides being the head honcho at his own self-titled brand, creative director at Balenciaga, he seems to have gotten the hang of collaborations, for after his epynomous collection for H&M last year, he has now offered his designer prowess to Italian furniture company Poltrona Frau. Infusing their classical furniture making skills with his urban design, the collaboration line includes 2 beanbag seat and one trunkbar, all in black leather with contrasting brass trimmings. Love these items and want them in your appartement? You might want to start saving your pretty pennies, because the price is also designer worthy: $8,800 for the beanbag and $18,500 for the trunk.
