Chosen out of Men's Paris Fashion Week I came to an absolute favourite AW13 collection. A collection where uptown meets downtown and from a designer who knows his tailoring inside out. Too bad I didn't notice this designer before, 'cause he's a true talent that knows how to mix different styles to one perfect clash, which we wanna wear all. I'm talking about men's wear designer Juun J..

Juun J.'s decidedly modern approach to design is deeply rooted in his masterly knowledge in classic tailoring where he shatter old notions to create new and refreshing silhouettes catching the modern eye. Largely inspired by youth and street culture Juun J. aptly calls this 'street tailoring'.

I'm absolutely over the moon by the AW13 collection Juun J. brought us at Paris Fashion Week. He showed us a sturdy, but elegant look with an oversized powerful silhouette. The feel was wide and big, but at the same time tailored and suited. There was an army colour palette, which I adore, with highlights of metallic and creamy white topped by showstopping neoprene sweaters with bold fairylike animals on it.

The looks I loved most are the ones with short signature boxy bomber jackets integrated into long wool coats as you see above. It's the perfect clash between the Parisian chique and the Tokyo streetstyle boys, where the classy classes dine with the edgy street-ish hipsters. Juun J.'s the bomb(er)!

I'm back to life and back to reality. The holiday season already seems far-far away like an ancient story and working life started again. Talking about the holiday season I spent mine in NYC, Paris and hometown Amsterdam and, gosh, it was amazing. So this post will be an intro to 2013 with a flashback to my holidays with some Parisian and city-that-never-ever-sleeps vibes. Saying that I still have to wish y'all a happy new year, since I haven't posted anything since December '12. Shame on me! Some people say it's too late to do the happy new year thing, but since it's a positive thing I think we can just pull it off and still say it, right?! So here it comes: A splendid and booming 2013 with lots of love and fantastic moments with your loved ones. May it be your best year so far with tons of elan and panache!

My holiday season started out with a trip with one of my besties to amazing concrete jungle where dream are made of: New York City. It was my first time in the Big Apple and I'm totally hooked. I'm in love with buzzy NYC! I think I just need to live there once. I'm in love with its lights, the restaurants, the skyscrapers, the beat, the hysteria, the yellow cabs, lovely Central Park, the thousands of squirrels, all the cool shops and brands, Brooklyn, Williamsburg, Greenwich Village, SoHo, Upper East Side, Meatpacking District, the three big bridges, hidden spots, clubs, the streetstyle, the ambition, the windows, the lofts, the brick walls, the theaters, the art, the dance, the museums, the vibe and so much more. I could go on for at least a day why I'm so crazy in love with this amazing metropole which makes you shine bright like a diamond of excitement and ambition. I was fortunate my gorge friend, Vivian, already went to NYC so she new some cool places. Besides that we have some friends living there who showed us around and “Heya, I'm going to NYC, so hook me up with the coolest spots in town” on Facebook is the best idea, so that's what we did. In one of my next posts I will tell you more about my favourite spots in NYC, with an – as I may say so myself – impressive and amazing list of hotspots which makes you wanna go to beloved New York right away, oh right away. I wanna be a part of it: New York, New York!

With Christmas I was in Amsterdam, but right afterwards I went to Paris, je t'aime. No, not alone, but with the 10 of us, so sweet and chique Paris had to prepare for some hysteria. We were only there for two days, but a ball we had. We wandered Le Marais and the Jardin des Tuileries and its surroundings, and as my friends and I are real foodies we ate and ate, and no, not only the delicious macarons from best in town Pierre Hermé. We had lunch at typical French restaurant Chartier, which is simple, but so-so good and had dinner at stunning Kong. An amazing hotspot right at Pont Neuf, overlooking the Seine with an amazing glass domed roof. The food as well as the interior at Kong is a fight between the moderns and the classics. The atmosphere is as if Philippe Starck met a Japanese geisha in Paris and the food is a fusion between the French and Japanese kitchen, which leads to the perfect collaboration between distinctive culinary traditions which makes your mouth water. Kong is a feast for your senses, a must visit in Paris. It isn't by accident they shot Sex & The City as well as Gossip Girl at this panache restaurant.

Now, back on track in Amsterdam, the fashion hysteria began again speaking about the men's fashion weeks all around the globe started in London, now happening in Milan followed by Paris later on this week. That last one, the one in Paris, I will visit. I just got back from Paris, but I can't wait to go again, especially 'cause I will visit some runway shows. Bring on those macarons and show me some drooling men's fashion & swagger at Paris Men's Fashion Week!

For the past 6 days I visited New York for the first time in my life and – GOOD GOD - I love that city to the max. A lot more about that shortly on the blog. Back home in Amsterdam, coming straight from the airport, I rushed myself right into the press view of the new Abercrombie & Fitch store situated in the heart of the city. Welcomed by living greek statued bouncing models wearing no tops we were led in to the world of hysterically scented Abercrombie.

Being asked “Hey, what's going on?” by all the A&F models, dancy music, dark walls, palm trees, warm and sultry lighting, well-organized glass display cabinets, little mazes and smelling the brand's typical signature scent they succeeded once again in creating a world they know best. Abercrombie & Fitch is big in NYC, but now it's time to hit Amsterdam. The store will open on Thursday the 13th of December at 11 am at the Leidsestraat 32-34 in Amsterdam. It's gonna be big, so be there or be square. Bring it on Abercrombie!

Some of you may know United Nude from their innovative heel-designs, others from the iconic Lady Gaga. Anyways, they sure know how to bring it original and now you can get all of that design and originality on sale. Yes, I'm talking about discounts. Do I have your attention now? Yeah, I already thought so.

United Nude, the brand that was founded in conceptual design, elegance and innovation, has their sample sale in Amsterdam going on at the moment. The sale is on from the 21st of November 'till the 11th of December. From ejection-molded shoes to high-end carbon fiber heels: United Nude got it all. So bring it on and hurry up to their pop-up store at the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 262 in Amsterdam to get a pair of UN'ies for prices varying from 25 up to 100 euros. Now we're talking right?!

Yesterday I picked my favourite men's shoes out of the their collection. The elan brand spoiled me with some awesome men's booties with an amazing heel design. Grunch black swag it is, with a bit of a rockstar thing going on. I'm lovin' it!
