Catwalk Trend Fall Winter 2018: Vivid Prints

Vivid & vibrant, that’s how we like our prints these days. Lead by the colorful examples of Balmain, Marni and Versace we can say our winter worries have never felt this far away. Futuristic (galaxy vibes at Balmain), nature inspired (red roses at McCartney, butterflies at McQueen, XL flowers at Valentino), household related (spoons and porcelain plates Dolce & Gabbana) or Art Deco (colorful heads at Marni). Any busy print will work and keep anyone you encounter busy (unraveling the details) of dizzy (just from looking at it). Head to toe prints work very well for the holidays and prints on prints are still a look. Have fun with it and be the prints charming in any room of any X-mas party you attend.

Catwalk Trend Fall Winter 2018: Skirt + Sweater

We’ve talked about it before. Skirts and sweaters remain a most popular combination. Pleated skirts and cable knit sweaters, but also floor sweeping tule skirts and fleece hoodies (Burberry). In fact we’ve seen so many variations to the classic combination anything goes really. We prefer the sweaters, blouses and knits as chunky as possible. But if you like your tops a bit more tight (H&M), that’s a good look too. Mix and match your way into this trend and twirl your way through winter!


Catwalk Trend Fall Winter 2018: Small Bags

A returning trend, season after season: small bags! For fall/winter they came in the shape of tiny handbags (Altuzarra), necklace-inspired (Emporio Armani, Giambattista Valli), attached to belts (Emilio Pucci) and Dolce & Gabbana even had them on a drone flying around their show venue. Whether leather (Loewe), fake leather (Stella McCartney), Velvet (Dolce & Gabbana) or fur (Chanel); a teeny tiny handbag is your go to accessory for winter. Who needs jewelry when you can have this type of bag on you all night. And, bonus, you might even be able to fit something more than a 50 cent coin into it!

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.

Catwalk Trend Fall Winter 2018: If the shoe fits…

December 11, 2018 by  
Filed under Fashion, womenswear


Bold & chunky of sheer & shiny; when it came down to footwear we saw both ends of the spectrum. Masculine & Feminine or a mix of both worlds. Cause even the chunkiest dad shoes got a shiny touch in form of diamonds (Gucci) and a metallic finish (Margiela). Not to mention the rainbow colored Burberry sneakers. Faux fur details/tassels (Balmain, Saint Laurent) might give your look that little extra something. But sparkling beads and sequins (Alberta Ferretti, Christopher Kane, Dolce & Gabbana) might do the trick too. Whatever your footwear of choice will be, make it a statement one. And don’t overthink it too much. Cause if the shoe fits..

The @itsmaysmemes coats are all over our Instagram this week and we can’t help but feel inspired. These puffers aren’t as impressive in size, but they sure make up for some statement streetwear looks. Keeping warm in a camouflage printed puffer, a pink metallic one or a turquoise number worn with a waist belt. And prepare yourself for some scaling up. Next season you’ll be like Kylie, Rihana or Haily dwarfed by a pair of xl puffers. Bearing the cold was never this easy. Giant jackets are the new wave.

Cycling to work like us? Then you´re definitely gonna need a pair of these. No winter wardrobe is completely without a decent scarf, a cool beanie and a tough pair of gloves. When it comes to dresscodes – how to wear them this season – options are endless. Wear a long pair of ladylike gloves (Ferretti, Demeuelemeester), opt for a sweater which has them attached to the sleeves (Balenciaga), pick a pair of stylish lace – yet not very warm – gloves (Dolce & Gabbana) or pick a pair of sleek and sheer (almost like a pair of tights) gloves (Alexander Wang). You can even wear just one glove on one hand (Louis Vuitton). Whatever way you wear your gloves make sure they fit right and don´t leave your designer gloves on the buss or loose them on your way home.
