Highlights of the Press Days 2013

A quick look at DEPT, which is all about mixing print and color.
A fun aspect of being a blogger is that I can share with you all the latest things that catch my eye. Surely enough, I went to the press days of 2013 in which the spring and summer collections of 2014 are displayed. Get ready for an extensive overview of the things that really caught my attention! 

Tosca Blu is an Italian brand that creates bags and fancy shoes. The bags of the spring and summer collection of 2014 consists of flashy and bright colors but retain a classy look due to the use of timeless shapes. All of them emanate luxury and style and here is a small preview of what is coming soon:




Sandwich_ has a huge collection: from dark to colorful and eventually to soft white, brown tones in the summer. This collection is inspired by botanics and flourishes through colors. What stood out to me was the special paint print used in many of Sandwich_ clothing items, see the picture below (the summer dress).






Stills stood out to me right away. Their 2014 spring collection is called "Emerge" and consists of many jackets, business pants and amazing dresses. Even from far away I could tell that this brand exudes sophistication and class, but what I find so amazing about this brand is one of their dresses. This amazing white dress looks so beautiful and when you take a closer look, you will notice the complexity of this dress. What I found most amazing is that it reminded me of the bones of a skeleton, if you look at the side of the dress. Yet it is done with so much beauty and style. Just wow.






Nee Make Up Milano is an exclusive brand that emphasizes the elegance and seduction of women. Its name comes from Italian, in which 'Nee' means rebirth. The beauty products all seem to have an elegant touch as most of its products are packaged in simple black. It has various lines and I was very curious about the foundation. They do offer colors for a darker skin as well, so that pleased me. I also liked that these items do not contain parabens and hyper allergens. So, this is definitely a brand I would like to get to know better in the future. Unfortunately, the products can not be bought in stores yet, only from beauticians and hairdressers for now.




Iceberg Candles are more than just candles, because it is an ornament that gives a natural and pure ambiance in your home. Moreover, the candles come in high-quality boxes that protect the candles and can be reused afterwards, something I found quite pleasing. The candles have a wooden or cotton wick and are made of a 100% vegetable wax.



Elisa Lee is a Belgian jewelry brand that creates very creative and edgier-looking items. I find it a-typical and it would go perfect with tougher (rocker) looks but it would work just as well with a classy look, too, if you wanted it to be edgier. So, what's not to love?




Pinko is an Italian clothing and accessories brand that has the most flamboyant products just screaming for attention in their spring and summer collection for 2014. The bags and shoes contain lots of spikes and the dresses are super flashy in all kinds of bold colors. Everything would be perfect to wear for a fashionable night out at a big fancy gala party! Here is a small sneak peek of the amazing accessories:




Just have a look at this gorgeous pair of Dolce & Gabanna sunglasses. Are they not just amazing? I absolutely adore the color, the shape and the design on the side. It is so feminine and fun, perfect for the summer of 2014. Everyone is surely aware of this brand and knows how high-fashion its products are and all those elements can be found in this example too. Perfection.



Oil & Vinegar will probably be a bit familiar among most of my readers. I own many products by this brand, so I had to share their Christmas collection with you all. If you love cooking, oil, vinegar and other delicious goodies, then you should definitely enter this store! Or if you happen to be looking for an excellent gift (for e.g. Christmas) then this is perfect. All the delicious things I saw and now want!




Last but definitely not least, Salima Thakker Jewellery is a Belgian brand that has exclusive and classic jewelry put in a contemporary jacket as you can see in the first picture. What appealed to me was the simplicity but richness, if that does not sound too contrastive for you!




On a site note, I would like to add that I tried out the BaByliss Curl Secret and it worked like a charm. I still think it is a bit too expensive for me right now, but it is surely going on my wish list! What an amazing product and it was easy to make curls with little effort. Other than that, I would like to thank all the PR-Agencies I visited for sharing their amazing brands with me. I had a lot of fun, received amazing goodie bags and learned so much more. Thank you kindly! I hope you, my lovely reader, found the shown images as beautiful or interesting as I found the products.
