Girls like bling "Zlda"

Zelda Beauchampet born 1979 Utrecht, The Netherlands. Graduated at the Design academy majoring "Man and Identity". Her products must become part of the imagination of its user, this is a key factor and very important to her. Take for example her handscape jewelry, specifically designed to be as changeable as its wearer's daily mood.

Checkmate "Opening Ceremony flannel shirt"

Opening Ceremony Classic Flannel. The unique print on this flannel features an enlarged magnified tartan.

Opening Ceremony likes to take classic garments and push the boundaries towards a more contemporary design. You can definitely see this in this original magnified check. They also do a very nice desert boot called the M1.


Nike merged two great ideas together to make one brilliant sneaker. They took the Air Structure Triax ’91’s and incorporated a basketball shoe upper. The midsole closely resembles that of the Jordan VI.

Inside of the shoe is a different colour than the outside.

"NIGEL CABOURN - Edmund Hilary/ Everest parka"

The Edmund Hilary parka is based on the exact jacket Sir Edmund Hilary wore on his conquest of Mount Everest. His actual jacket is now housed in the Auckland Museum, New Zealand.

The Nigel Cabourn Authentic line is a unique collection consisting of original clothes inspired by Nigel’s rare archival pieces from the 1940’s and 1950’s.

p.s. please don't ask me what this parka costs...

Personal shopper: varsity jacket

In some shape or form the varsity jacket appears in a lot of different collections at the moment. You can dress it up or down, go for colour or ton sur ton like the black on black version in the picture above from COS.

New denim bible...

I bet you did not know about this brand "DUNDERDON"

Born in the Swedish port town of Gothenburg in 1997, Dunderdon is Sweden’s most innovative workwear company. Founded by carpenter Per-Ivan Hagberg, the mission at Dunderdon has always been to create clothing for craftsmen who appreciate superior construction and smart design.

Per-Ivan has always been driven by a vision that there would be no filler designs in the Dunderdon line, that each product would have a reason for being and would satisfy specific needs. This remains a guiding credo today.

A dirty mind is a joy forever "Burton Love 2009"

To me this is the best snowboard artwork ever. My Burton Uninc has better qualities, but otherwise I would definitely get this Burton Love board from last season. Question; could riding this Burton Love board be considered cheating on your girlfriend?

Thom Browne.

Thom Browne dresses like an insurance adjuster circa 1957, eats the same breakfast every day, goes out for his morning run and wears pants that are way too short. Besides all these boring facts he's the men's designer who's going to save the suit from extinction.

Thom Browne is renowned for his ground breaking ways of showing his collection, like having the models show in an ice rink or swimming pool. The innovation that he puts in the shows contradicts his product. The product is all about traditional craftsmanship and serious quality, check out the clip below and you'll understand what I'm talking about.

A splash of colour to brighten up your day "Anon Figment Winterfresh"

I am not going to bore you with technical specifications, as Anon is a Burton Snowboards owned company, you can trust the quality with your eyes closed.

The thing I like is that you can set yourself apart from the rest with one of the many colour ways that these goggles are available in.

I want the winterfresh, and you?

One of the few museums that I really like "PINAKOTHEK DER MODERNE"

If you ever find yourself in or near Munich, one of the must do's is visit the Pinakothek museums. My personal favourite is the Pinakothek der Moderne with a very large selection of design, art and architecture.
