The first Global Denim Awards are a fact. Last night at De Hallen in Amsterdam young designer Jonathan Christopher received the award/cheque worth  10.000 euro. The Global Denim Awards is an anual event that pairs the worlds premier denim mills with emerging designers. This year it were six designers: Stefano Ughetti, Gizem Turan, Jonathan Christopher, Fernanda Fernandes, Bhavesh Samji and Anneloes van Osselaer.

The collections were judged by a panel of international denim experts based on the merits of the design and innovative nature of the denim fabrications. The award – 10.000 euro – was made possible by e3, the winning designer also will have the collection displayed at the Kingpins shows around the world.

Jonathan Christopher presented a collection together with ITV and got his inspiration by nomads. His Nomadum collection gives a peek in the different worlds of nomads, the urban nomad wondering through the city but also the ones that go through rough terrain. Destroying the garments, and getting it dirty, collecting waste material and making it into something beautiful. Jonathan Christopher made it into a modern,  rough collection.

They’re the icing on the cake of a standout look. They’re you’re go to accessory after a short night of sleep. They’re another way of expressing your sense of style (or humor). And they come in such great variations this summer! Mirrored (as seen at Alberta Ferretti), see through (Miu Miu), embellished (Prada), aviator-shaped (Dior) and butterfly-inspired (Fendi, Just Cavalli, Dsquared). The options are innumerable and, in fact, apart from this season’s trends any shape or size is perfectly fashionable as long as it matches your face and complements your outfit. To get you fully inspired for the upcoming hot summer months (or for your holiday destination) we’ve created a BIG inspiration gallery full of head turning sunnies. Sunny side up!

Maison Martin Margiela, Gianvitto Rossi, Fendi, Sophia Webster, Rag & Bone, Pierre Hardy and Jimmy Choo have some strong ones in their collections. Now you might be thinking.. What the peep is this shoe trend all about? But after you’ve browsed through our gallery there’s only one thing on top of your wishlist.. Show some toe, have a lovely summer with happy feet!

What can we say, a good hat not only makes a perfect outfit, but also a beautiful picture. No wonder so many mad hatters visit fashion week every season. From felt to straw, square shaped, flappy or asymmetrical, from sober to brightly colored; a light weight hat is your go to accessory this summer. Great for that mysterious look, nice little extra SPF and completely on trend. Right Marni, Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Acne Studios and Olympia Le-Tan? Our best bet: the white Panama. Hats off for this stylish S/S trend!

Oh animal print, we just can’t get enough of you. We might have said everything there is to say. The past few decades we have adored you more than you know of. We’ve ditched you and fallen back in love with you for so many times. And still it’s not yet over. This summer too we’re preparing to rock you like no other trend. We’ll bring the slightly updated version of you back into our closets. Sure leopard, our love, you’re our favorite this time around too. Yet we’re using you as a subtle little extra. On a pair of shoes, a shoulder bag, a silly hat. New variations come in crazy animal prints taking pretty literal. Like on that red baboon dress we shot, or the cock printed coat Mira rocks in one of our pictures. The print possibilities are endless, you’re such a wild thing!

There are those fashion lovers that stick to black their entire life. And there are fully white attire fanatics around just as well. But for everyone else the good old black & white is the safest go to color combination. No they might not even be called colors, but the styling options they provide are never ending nonetheless. Just take a look at our streetstyle gallery and tell us there’s not a look you’d love to wear yourself. Well? Isn’t the black and white trend a all time favorite that is just for everyone. You might not like prints, you could be totally against wearing dresses, perhaps high heels are you’re worst enemy, but the monochrome look you can’t resist. Work it with a little sixties vibe this season and look at fashion luminaries Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Rodarte and Celine for inspiration.
