PUMA x Stampd Blaze of Glory Black editions

Chris Stamp continues to join forces with PUMA and now introduces Stampd Athletics by Puma Season 2. Complemented with this release comes the Blaze of Glory sneakers in rendered tonal leather and suede panels. The shoe features a classic Trinomic sole with special toggled elastic closures for some extra heat. I love the sleek silhouette of the sneakers and the super balanced minimal aesthetic of it. The details can be found in the use of different fabrics like the perforated pieces, suede panels and neoprene finishes. It’s a well thought-through representation of the dark weaves inspired by Californian culture. And yes, they are a great match for the ladies as well due to its sophisticated looks. So, welcome to the sneaker family! A full look will be there soon, so to be continued..

Norse Projects presents AW15 Woman Editorial

To celebrate the launch of their first Women’s store in Copenhagen tomorrow, Norse Projects decided to celebrate this with a special AW15 Woman editorial. And I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with the outcome. After seeing the first arrivals of the AW15 line a while ago, I was already stoked about it but not sure what to really expect of it. But apparently the Scandinavian menswear brand took things to a whole new level and continues with their dedication to the female fans out there. And I couldnt be more happier, of course. In the editorial we see quality basics made from luxury fabrics like Japanese cotton, merino wool, lambs wool and cosy alpaca, executed in comfy oversized silhouettes and boxy fits for a relaxed look, but all with a strong female elegance to it. Next to some neutral greys, whites and blacks, Norse decided to inject some subtile colors as well with pastel pink, deep navy, army green and camels. Perfect to integrate with your winter wardrobe. For those living outside of Copenhagen, …

Stampd introduces Womens line for AW15

I’ve been waiting for this line to drop since I found out about it a few months ago and yes, it’s almost here! Stampd introduces their first women’s capsule line, featuring tees, jerseys, sport tops and a cropped version of their iconic strapped bomber. Even though the ladies can pick from the boys section as well, it’s nice to see founder Chris Stamp dedicates a full line to the streetwear gals, and gives us a warm welcome. Expect a fine mix of quality materials the luxury streetwear line is known for, such as neoprene and performance tech fabric updated with sleek silhouettes to complement the female form. And, of course, lots of black staples are involved. Available from November 17 on 12AM PST online only, where each item is limited to 100 pieces. Still making some decisions, what about you?

On a Coat hunt

Yep, it’s that time of the year again to search for a new coat to survive coming winter season with. Although I’m excited to add a new cover-up, i’m always struggling to find the perfect one. It’s a piece you are going to wear for almost every day during a period of 2 to 3 months, and therefore easy to get bored by really soon. And don’t forget it has to match with your entire wardrobe (that’s where the hard part comes in). Investing in the right piece is the real challenge in here, so I decided to go on an online coat hunt first. These online treasures pretty much sums up my list of dream coats, yes, dream coats as most of them are too expensive for the current state of my wallet… But it can be really good coatspiration instead while searching for a more affordable one. Or maybe, maybe I just win the lottery and buy them all. (dreaming won’t hurt right?!) Charlie May Alpaca Coat – €1030,- &Other Stories Wool Blend …

Merging the best of both worlds: Très Bien x Stüssy

I was pretty stoked when I found out that Swedish store Très Bien linked up with Stüssy on a Fall ’15 menswear collection, with a strong minimalistic approach to it. The two brands blessed us with a range including some boxy T-shirts with an embroidered option, loose-fitting shorts, a long-sleeved polo, a coaches jacket and a pair of sunglasses to complete the look. Using Italian fabrics with more contemporary silhouettes, the collection finds a perfect balance between Stüssy’s Californian skate and surf roots and Très Bien’s refined Scandinavian perspective. “For our generation, Stüssy, together with other U.S. brands like Nike, Levi’s and Champion, was the uniform at a certain age,” Hannes Hogeman told to T Magazine, who, along with his brother Simon, runs Très Bien. “The designs came effortlessly, to be honest. It was more about removing details, changing the cuts and adding some fabrics that you may not usually get from Stüssy.” It will be no surprise to you if I admit I would wear every single piece of this collaboration, that’s why you …

A talk with jewelry
designer Renathe from
StillWithYou

Meet jewelry designer Renathe Todal Tande from StillWithYou! I recently reached out to this lady for this ‘A Talk With’ column as she continues to inspire me with her effortless taste for jewelry. Renathe started the StillWithYou studio only a few years ago and her pieces are now worn in over 30 countries all over the world. The Copenhagen-based jewelry designer has this weak spot for dark, minimalist silver pieces, she works mainly with raw crystals and delivers a strong focus on longevity both in style and quality. As she describes ‘staple pieces for the minimalist’. After I found out about SWY through Instagram, I thought it was about time to get to know her and Renathe’s latest collection designs a little bit better, so here we go! Hi Renathe, please introduce yourself! “I am orginally from Norway and moved to Copenhagen in 2010 after studying political science in the south of Norway. I started making jewelry as a hobby in December 2010, and now run StillWithYou studio in Copenhagen.” You’re a jewelry designer and …

Gosha Rubchinskiy x New Balance 990V3 for GQ Germany

Moscow designer & photographer Gosha Rubchinskiy got asked by GQ Germany to shoot the New Balance 990V3 sneaker style and the results are beyond! Rubchinskiy, who stocks from street style shops to high-end boutiques like Dover Street Market and Tres Bien, takes the shoe to a whole new level. We can see the sneaker in a Soviet’ish setting – something the designer’s known for – styled with some serious normcore aesthetics. We have to thank Sam Jarou & Veneda Anastasia for that, as they took over the editorial’s styling & art direction. The team succeeds in proving that the sneaker needs nothing more than a basic ensemble to be an absolute stand-out.

Veneda Anastasia for adidas Originals

One of my mayor girl crushes, model Veneda Anastasia, has a really cool collab going on with adidas Originals with this campaign titled #SelectedByVeneda. What it exactly is, no one really knows. Yet. But they have my attention for sure as they already shared a few video’s of Veneda teaching you some lessons, wearing her fave pieces from the sportswear giant. Veneda Budny is only 20 years old, but already has marked the fashion/streetwear industry with her fresh personality, stunning looks and exquisite style. She’s not only an aspiring model, like she writes on her blog, but also established herself as a sneaker enthousiast, dedicated hip-hop listener and a dj. The Polish-born model got discovered by one of Denmark’s leading model agencies and things went quick from that moment on. After graduating she became a familiair face around Copenhagen, not only as a model but also by playing gigs in this city’s nightlife. She now moved to New York to take her model career to a next level. But what I love most about Veneda …

A talk with fashion designer Melissa Araujo

It’s time to introduce you to a new column on un-cluttered: ‘A Talk With’. In this section I’ll catch up with like-minded individuals who inspire me on a daily base with their unique approach on minimalism. For this first column I reached out to fashion designer Melissa Araujo who I’ve virtually met on Instagram a while ago and keeps surprising me ever since with her effortless style and minimalistic designs. Melissa runs her own clothing label inspired by architecture and geometric shapes with a timeless feel to it. In this way Melissa’s allowing modern women to wear the pieces year around as a statement or a staple piece. Hi Melissa, please introduce yourself! “I am originally from Brazil, moved to Canada to pursue a Marketing Degree, but once I finished, realized it was not as creative as I thought it would be. As I was deciding on what to do next with my professional life, I started to remember that many of my friends were always asking where I bought my clothes and where they …
