If you follow me on twitter, instagram or snapchat then you know it was that time again... the Press Days! This time it was all about the Fall/Winter collection for clothing and accessories and Spring/Summer for food. That sounds so exciting, right? Let's take a look at the new collections!
Let's talk accessories. Herschel Supply Co. is a pretty well known backpack brand with features found inside hiking backpacks and travel bags, such as a laptop pocket, air mesh straps to increase airflow and comfort, and more good stuff. This season they have created some young and fun backpacks ready to be worn by the cool kids. What do you think?
Happy Socks makes, as its obvious name clearly states, all kinds of happy socks for both men, women and kids! Besides socks, the brand also manufactures underwear! For the FW15 collection, Happy Socks has collaborated with Billionaire Boys Club, owned by Pharrell Williams, and created fun new underwear and socks with all kinds of money signs on it.. showing their worth. An important accessory, besides underwear and socks, is lip balm with SPF! You should not forget about taking care of your lips this summer, so Bodysol has created three different lip products to keep them hydrated and healthy. They come in those convenient ball shapes.. a must try!
Yz'Bel is another accessories brand focussing mainly on jewelry and exclusive silk scarves. The jewelry is influenced by Indonesia and has an exotic and contemporary feel to it. The production of these products is even done in Bali by women who can work from home (and so take care of their family). I think that is a beautiful concept and the jewelry pieces look very intricate and special.
You may already know that I am a big fan of Salt & Pepper. I know where I am shopping once I move into a new home. I mean, their kitchen supplies and decorative accessories are just so amazing. There is very little that I do not love by S&P. Here are some more examples of what I love.. this is from the current collection and should be in stores soon, if not already! Copper and rose gold accessories caught my attention. These gorgeous champagne glasses make everything look more classy. And then there's the marble plate and cups collection that is so in tune with the current marble trend. As always, S&P is doing it right! What a nice way to present small bites, such as these sardines by Cognac, on a beautiful marble plate!
You know what I really love? A nice comfy bed. I also really love having blue bed sheets, so when I saw this beautifully made up bed with Mistral Home textiles I knew I had to test it. It was so comfy. I surely could have slept for hours. Mistral Home does not just produce bed sheets, but pretty much everything you can imagine in a home that is related to fabric: table covering, curtains, pillow covers, plaids, seat covers, and more!
Time for some clothing. If there is a brand that absolutely wowed me, then it was Edith & Ella. This brand was created in 2004 by Line Markvarsden, who named it after her grandmothers. The clothing is very colorful and this season you will notice influences of from the past too. I came across a nice long dress that just reminded me of the 1920s. Speaking of dresses, you will find lots of those. So, if you are more of a girly girl.. then this brand is for you. Heck, I'm not even a girly girl.. and I am loving it!
Sothys is a bit more expensive brand when it comes to skin and body care, but it is also very exclusive. You will only find it beauty salons, so it is used by the experts. For this summer, Sothys has created a whole new line that will protect your body against the sun whilst nourishing it. It also has a really nice dry oil for your body with subtle glitters in it. I am ready to shine this summer. What about you?
Remember that I wrote about my Cien lipsticks? Cien is a home brand by the Lidl supermarket and they have expanded to even more products! Now you can try all kinds of shower gels, hairsprays and more good stuff! All available for a very inexpensive price. The bottles look nice, right? I love the different colors! I wonder how they smell!
Let's finish the first part of the 2015 Press Days with Nude Diamond jewelry. A brand new jewelry company in Antwerp that focuses on minimalistic designs. The great thing is that all the necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings are completely customizable, from the size and number of diamonds. On the left, you have earrings, in a middle a beautiful tiny necklace and on the right this gorgeous ring. Oh my god. Is that ring not amazing? These diamonds by Nude Diamond sparkle from every angle so that makes the minimalist look even more special. Is there something you loved in particular from these brands?
