Maison the Faux Catwalk Fashion Show AFW Studio 2019

Het Compagnietheater was crowded Thursday night (Full House!). And we were all in for a treat. Maison the Faux has never been a label that holds straightforward fashion shows. “MAISON pour MAISON” was theater, performance and dance all in one. A multidisciplinary presentation with just a touch of fashion.

The scene presented a series of vignettes that explored all facets of a home. With multiple beds on stage and feathers falling from the ceiling scenes depicting bedroom behavior at it’s most extreme. Settings that reflect the chaos of rehousing. Performers and movers swanned around, maneuvering through the sets and feeling at home within the constructed framework. MAISON the FAUX had their performers breaking free from borders and walls, transitioning from lonesome and confined sensibilities towards a feeling of togetherness. 

All models, dancers, performers wore MAISON the FAUX’s interpretation of leisure wear. Home-wear in it’s most ultimate and elegant form. The looks consisted out of two-piece PJ’s, bedroom gowns, negligee sets and a selection of robes combined with sleeping hats and sweaters and T’s with MAISON the FAUX Melatonin graphics. The home-wear looks were styled with various interior products; pillows, duvets, sleep masks and even mattresses.

“There’s no place like MAISON.”

YAYA Catwalk Fashion Show FW2019

On Monday evening we took our seats at the Yaya fashion show at the Zuiveringshal in Amsterdam. What a lovely way to start the week! For Fall / Winter 2019 the Dutch fashion brand dived it’s collection into the mysterious Far East and the elusive Japanese society. “Where function meets form and words are as important as silence.” Titled “The Essentials” the show was about creating perfect harmony through contradictions.

Divided into three themes it kicked off with a series of cool and modern looks existing of fashion pieces in somewhat the same color tones. Like a white sweater worn with a white pair of joggers, off white boots and an off white cardigan. Or a skirt, top and boots in the same beige/sand colored palette. Dresses had kimono sleeves, knitwear came with balloon sleeves. The outfits appeared comfy, wearable and desirable all at once. Like the ultimate basic pieces, that are so strong through their simplicity, to build a complete wardrobe upon.

Prints of flowers, birds and dragons gave the collection it’s Eastern, Japanese inspired vibe. Caps and sneakers, bomber jackets, oversized hoodies, leggings and mesh details added a sporty touch to the looks. In line with the logomania trends YAYA was used a a print on some of the knitwear pieces.

A few teddys coats and fur jackets added some extra cosines. And we have a crush on those long puffers. To wear with those skinny jeans, army green shirt and sneakers. Or simply any other outfit shown that night. ‘Cause that’s one of the great things about the Yaya collections; they’re designed in a way almost all items of a collection can be worn together and they can also easily be blended in with your own wardrobe. And we’re sure ours is ready for this hint of the Far East.

Nikkie in Concert: where music meets fashion

Backstage people described the event as Nikkie’s own Victoria’s Secret show, but the show Nikkie Plessen pulled off this Tuesday night, was so much more than just that. NIKKIE IN CONCERT had (mostly) women of all ages going wild on a night filled with performances by some of the best Dutch musicians. Not many womenswear designers can say they filled a concert venue (AFAS) fit for 6000 people with fans and friends of their brand. And not just the line-up (Ronnie Flex, Waylon, Famke Louise, Lil Kleine, Ali B, Jeroen van der Boom, André Hazes and Xander de Buisonjé among others) was mindblowing. The audience filled with Dutch celebs (Martijn Krabbé, Johnny de Mol, John Ewbank), influencers (Noor de Groot, Monica Geuze, Kae Sutherland) and international topmodels like Kate Moss and Natascha Poly was just as impressive.

Anna Nooshin hosted the show, which formed the ultimate blend of music and fashion as models – dressed in the latest Nikkie designs – danced on stage to some of the greatest Dutch hits of the moment. When Waylon came on and performed his version of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean a Victoria’s Secret inspired scene filled the stage and we got to see even more of Nikkie’s new collection (short skirts, knee high boots and beanies were the main fashion message). Of course in such an enormous venue, with so many great artists performing you can imagine it was hard to focus on the clothes. We’d love to see a few more show pieces next time, but it was a night to remember nevertheless.

If any upcoming designer wants to learn about branding he/she can take notes from what Nikkie is and has been doing for season after season now. Might you wonder if she’s able to pull of something even bigger and better? Just stay tuned and see what the next Nikkie event has in store for us. But for now, just enjoy some of last night’s show a bit more by clicking through our galleries of Show, Model and Celeb images.
