SHOOTING, POSING, DREAMING.

Last monday Cedric, Patrick and I joined forces on taking the next big step into a project we have been really excited for way too long now. 

Patrick and I have somehow ended up making music. We don't exactly know why but what we are sure of is that this was the only way to unleash all kinds of ideas and little fantasies we had gathered and built together around fashion, photography and music beats. When you spend so much time with people you love and click with, ideas keep piling up and at some point it doesn't matter how crazy, weird or out of your league such ideas might be, they need to get materialized; become real.

We'll go by The Thins for now and our first song GUNS 'N POSES prod. by TORVS is already a fact. this 31st of October, or Halloween, or my B-day (however you wanna call it) we will give all our closest and dearest friends the first hear at what the beginning of this adventure already sounds like. Like this, on November 4th GUNS 'N POSES will be officially out and ready to be yours, a party anthem, a new memory.

Stay tuned!:

For now, I leave you to Marcus Marr's - Pleasure Moon, what our lives sound like at the moment.

DREAM GIRLS LOOK LIKE DREAM BOYS.


Last time I surfed Paparazzi Models's site for beauty and inspiration, I encountered Karolijn's face and I've been Girl-Crushed ever since. Not only do I need everything she's wearing in these pictures urgently, but I would more than love to have the chance to work with her once!

DANCING QUEENS.

 But since I've met you and moved to Sydney, I haven't listened to one Abba song. That's because my life is as good as an Abba song. It's as good as Dancing Queen. - Muriel's Wedding

HALLOWEEN, MY BIRTHDAY & OTHER PRIVATE MATTERS.

October has officially started and I actually can't wait for it to be over!

Because this 31st of October, like any other 31st of October since 1990 also known as Halloween, will bring my birthday along.

Last time I celebrated being a year older, way too many weirdos, and rude unknown people crashed causing a lot of unnecessary drama. Therefore this year I wanted my party theme to match my worry and wish to keep things creme de la creme once inside; and whatelse could be more exclusive, fun and nostalgic than playing highschool again? wear private school uniforms and pretend our daddies and mommies send Bentleys to pick us up after class? nothing.

And well, since this one night institution will need a head bitch in charge, who else could I be on a Private School themed party than Mrs. Blair Waldorf herself?!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN MONTH ERRBODY!

RAGE IS CUTE, HATE IS FIERCE.

Last time while in Paris I found this gem at the Cheap Monday store in Le marais and fell in love with it's sadness. The faster and colder days get, the more I fall back into my autumn patterns; music gets darker, slower, dreamier, outfits get heavier and moods get gloomier. 

This fall I'm looking forwards to wearing more leather than ever; from head to toe if possible and not necesarily all black. I'm also desperately looking for _the_ leather backpack of my dreams but if my wallet isn't able to go for high end options I guess I'll have to wait and get lucky either in vintage or raid every flea market in town possible. 

"Reason" by Spooky Black trully kills me and I think his mixtape and album are a gift from sad boy heaven.

CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO SHINE.



There's something about every-day-jewelry that makes getting out your door way easier. You throw something on, you think you're ready but the cherry on top is still missing. It's also funny how simply having a new necklace can make your whole wardrobe feel new.

Ever since I mysteriously lost my last cross necklace, the hunt for a new one was long and hard mostly in a country like the Netherlands where neither crosses or catholicism were ever popular beliefs at all. I personally don't follow any religion but my own drive to do whatever I love and makes me and those around me happy. That, and a little bit of discipline and gratitude make up for the perfect religion imo.

I found this 20's silver cross with black encrusted stones at my favorite antique shop in my town: Bibeloo Antiques.

WE NEED SOMETHING BAD TO BE GOOD.


"VICES" for WE THE URBAN issue #8. 
All photos by Cédric, styled by moi.
Hair: Geo Timmerman.
Grooming: Francis Krol.
Model: Jelle @Muskmodels.
Assistant photograpy: Mohamed Barzini.

1. Kleptomania, Smoking.
2. Chocolate, Vanity.
3. Masochism, Ecstasy.
4. Alcohol, Speed.

I think this might be one of the funnest concepts we ever brought to life this far. Not only was Jelle a DREAM model boy to work with for this specific idea, but having full freedom on a subject such as 'Vices' was just awesome. I'll just let each picture speak for itself! I think everything's quite clear lol.

LET'S GLOW NOW.


Taken with iPhone, woops!

But this is just a sneak peak of Joeri Woudstra's aka Torus upcoming video for "Creepin". I was the chosen and lucky one to do the styling for it and we can't wait to show everybody this magical, trippy and sinister visual recipe cause it's gonna kill to be quite honest. His new EP "TEMPLES" is about to drop in an upcoming late november and it will be something "MASSIVE, ETHERIC AND DIVINE" as Mr. Torus describes himself. I personally already heard half of the songs on it and all I know is that I need it on my every playlist as soon as possible.

HOLY INTERIOR: LELLA AND MASSIMO VIGNELLI COFFE TABLE.


Just like puzzle pieces perfectly put together, this Lella and Massimo Vignelli coffee table would be the ultimate upgrade and final missing piece in my home interior puzzle. The fact that you can actually rearrange each black marble shape holding the glass plate for a less uniform support makes this coffee table very playful and even more desirable. And though nothing beats marble and a beautifully cut thick piece of glass, my DIY spirit does feel a little awaken to make my own version of this masterpiece.

DEAR DEARS
