What time better than the start of a new year to share with you the ‘colours’ that made it to the hitless of two word players in the field of color. Pantone presented the colour Marsala (pantone 18-1438), a naturally robust, dramatic, luxurious warm and earthy wine red that enriches our mind, body and soul (in these hard and cold times we live in) as thé colour of 2015. Marsala got it’s name from the fortified, tasteful and rich wine grounded in red-brown roots with a sophisticated, natural earthiness. Marsala combines perfectly with grey tones, sunny gold shades and taupe but also surprisingly well with today’s still very popular pastel shades.
Bands that re-invent themselves once in a while, have my full support. It’s good sometimes to reflect on what you are and how the band magic works. GOOSE, a Belgian band in the electronic dance/rock scene, had an interesting question about performing on stage and what does it do with you as a band.
Last weekend I was in London with my daughter Maui and I absolutely wanted to visit The Beauty Project at London’s trendiest megastore Selfridges. The Beauty Project is a mind-provoking and multi layered exploration of the definition of beauty and what it means in today’s society.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Rotterdam. I think it’s a city with more innovation power than Amsterdam, and they have less to prove to the world. It’s also the only Dutch town with a real skyline, 2 big rivers coming together and some exciting(but let’s be honest, not all buildings are beautiful) architecture. A few weeks ago, I got an invitation to join travel bag expert Eastpak who organized a so called ‘wildlife’ Tour in Rotterdam, to discover some new, independent small retailers, hair salons, designers and food concepts.
