Une source d´inspiration; G.D.

Ooh la laaa...c´est magnifique...c´est...incroyable!
Her blog is more delicious than a french chocolate croissant!!
(hm, I´m actually not really sure about that...)

She´s coming to Amsterdam...! And she will probably come during Amsterdam International Fashion Week in july.



I would love to know her opinion of the streetstyle fashion in Amsterdam. Because, to be honest, the style you see here is nothing compared to the fashion style you see on the streets of Paris:





She started her blog in june 2006 posting funny and sexy illustrations like these ones:







But she´s mostly known for her fashion treasures, found on the streets during fashion weeks.









What I like about her site is that she´s not only posting complete outfits but also the faces. She´s getting somewhat more intimate with these people she encounters and sometimes writes a short story of the meeting.









I hope to meet up with her and have a lil photoshoot with my Yashica. :)

But I´m sure I´m not the only one in The Netherlands who knows about this. I think it´s gonna be a lot of pushing and shoving, biting, punching and kicking (á la Japanese style) for a picture of Garance Doré.

Ik kende haar niet... Maar ga meteen een kijkje nemen! Ben ook benieuwd wat ze van de streetstyle hier vind... Ik zie zelden een erg hip meisje. Meestal van die standaard merkenmeisjes (Uggs/minnetonka's, skinny, tuniekje, geblondeerd haar), maar dat is geen stijl als je het mij vraagt. Merken zijn te koop, mode een beetje, maar stijl al helemaal niet. Of je ziet die 'alto' streetstyle lopen (zo noem ik het altijd maar). A la Agyness Deyn zeg maar, vintage look, etc.

Maar nou NOOIT eens stylisch, klasse, zoals de actrices in modefilms hihi (love that)


Ik vind die outfit met die bontmuts trouwens echt geweldig!

Garance was one of the first blogs I started reading. She is truly inspirational, and her humor is spot on.
Now, about your blog. I would follow your blog even if I deleted 90% of the rest. I love your sweet commentaries that go along with your photos. And sometimes you really crack me up. xo

Very nice that she is hitting the streets in Amsterdam. I hope she enjoys herself. I missed her in Sydney I hope you make up for it by catching her in A'dam..

EY!!!
super total congratulations on your Yashica...
there's hard any thing as lovely as film...


on the other hand, if you are about to make an opinion on depressed street fashion, you should come to Montevideo.....

Lucky! I hope you meet her! I would have a ton of things to ask/talk about with that lady.
Well, just stopping by to tell you that I found out the mystery photographer of that W Korea shoot I posted. His name is Hong Jang Hyun. I hope your summer is going off to a good start :)

I take my hat off to the way Francesco (the one in red cardigan and black blazer) dress! I think I saw his pictures (the one with green trousers and checked blazer) a couple of months ago at The Sartorialist. He is an absolute perfectionist. His style is elegant and refreshing. Absolutely one of a kind! I wish more men could dress up like him!

"Because, to be honest, the style you see here is nothing compared to the fashion style you see on the streets of Paris"

Don't get mistaken.
In my opinion, there's just one week during wich one there's stylish people here. It's called Fashion Week.
French people are kind of mental blocked for style fantasies, for many reasons.
