Do you remember you first teenage crush? I think it’s been 14 years that I bought my first ‘Balenciaga’ Le Dix Motorcycle bag. No, I wasn’t a wealthy 14-year-old, I bought a faux leather dupe without knowing I bought a knock-off and to be honest: […]
There used to be a time I was an avid follower of the 5 Piece French Wardrobe method. I was intrigued by the idea of building an entire wardrobe around finding the perfect basics and adding just a few (yes, I think 5 pieces every season is a few) not-so-timeless pieces to spice things up a bit. Sounds like the perfect definition of my personal style: lots of basics, with the occasional show piece.
Anyway, it must have been around that same time that I bumped into this piece of leather perfection at a local store. Small, minimalistic, sturdy.. just awesome. I’m not sure what held me back, because quite a few bags have been added to my humble collection, but somehow I’ve never been able to get this one out of my head. And what do we do with things that get stuck in our heads to the extend that it even appears in our dreams? Right. We grab it while we can. So that’s exactly what I did.

‘Now that I found my perfect leather jacket, I’ll defenitely stop buying them every single year..’. I can still hear these words coming out of my mouth after I bought my leather love last summer. Little did I know what oversized leather goodness would come to me while strolling down Maasmechelen Village. I visited the village because of the Belgian Pavilion, a platform that was given to Belgian designers like Véronique Leroy, Filles À Papa and Christian Wijnants (just to name a few..) to showcase their collections. Awesome. But ofcourse I did some shopping as well, and bumped into my new oversized friend. Love the detailing, love the roughness, I even love the little stars on the inside. Need I say more?
