Peas with goat cheese snow at Souvenir in Ieper. 2015 has kicked off, but it happens these days that I think back about the things that were great last year. What better than have a scroll trough all my Instagram posts of 2014 and take a trip trough memory lane…. I must admit, looking at these moments, it was a good year. Why not share the best of my Instagram memories? I went trough all the great trips I made last year, the restaurants I visited, the wonderful work collaborations and the unforgettable art shows and exhibitions I went to. Here they are. It’s a selection, a best of.
Street art is one of my weak points when it comes to art love. Maybe because strong street art has that rough edge I like so much, or has the tattoo scene something to do with it? Street artists often mix complex stories with a message about the modern world as they travel it in a non-conformistic way at night. I don’t know, the fact is when Banksy, Roa, or let’s say Martin Ron hit the streets with recent work, they get my attention straight away.

Christophe Urbain is one of those real ‘entrepreneurs’ who just think and act at the same time. Result (this month): a brand new store ‘breeded’ in the cellar of his (third) store Rewind Men, opened last week for the press and ‘the Ghent-scene’. B.L.C.K. Fashion freaks know: black is always good but is back as never before. Black makes it possible to focus on pure shape instead of color and that is fascinating and liberating at the same time. What to expect? Only black stuff: fashion, objects, furniture, scents. Labels? DRKSHDW en Lilies collecties of Rick Owens, Avelon, The Last Conspiracy, A.Friend by A.F.
