Some of you may know United Nude from their innovative heel-designs, others from the iconic Lady Gaga. Anyways, they sure know how to bring it original and now you can get all of that design and originality on sale. Yes, I'm talking about discounts. Do I have your attention now? Yeah, I already thought so.

United Nude, the brand that was founded in conceptual design, elegance and innovation, has their sample sale in Amsterdam going on at the moment. The sale is on from the 21st of November 'till the 11th of December. From ejection-molded shoes to high-end carbon fiber heels: United Nude got it all. So bring it on and hurry up to their pop-up store at the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 262 in Amsterdam to get a pair of UN'ies for prices varying from 25 up to 100 euros. Now we're talking right?!

Yesterday I picked my favourite men's shoes out of the their collection. The elan brand spoiled me with some awesome men's booties with an amazing heel design. Grunch black swag it is, with a bit of a rockstar thing going on. I'm lovin' it!

Hell yeah, the second international issue of biannual magazine PRESTAGE is finally there. Sold worldwide in over 22 countries you can easily say this Dutch magazine is the most international one in the bunch and, all mighty, it looks divine.

The new issue is named 'The Magic Number Seven Minus Two' and magic it is. The series, the interviews, the newly discovered talents, the lay-out, the feel, the look, the cover(s), the launch party: it all breaths panache and elan, just the way I adore it. As you may now I love launches and especially when it's a dashing one, so of course I was there to celebrate this joyful new issue.

PRESTAGE is one of my favourite fashion magazines without one single doubt. So what makes this all even better? Well, the magazine asked me to do the styling for a serie, photographed by Robin de Puy, with swagful artist Cata.Pirata who's the lead singer in the amazing South-African/Dutch band Skip & Die. I was filled and thrilled with happiness and the result turned out amazing if I may say so myself. The shoot was there, 'cause PRESTAGE interviewed rising star Cata about the band, her life, her thoughts, experiences and motivations. Now you wanna know what it all looks like, right? I know you want want. Okay, ready?! Here it comes!

Besides my very own shoot, I assited stylist and PRESTAGE's fashion director Amber Myhre Bosch with some exquisite shoots in the magazine as well. Apart from that there are some more shoots I absolutely fell in love with. I picked some of my favourite pages out of the new issue. I'll tease you with some cool snaps. Start drooling and get indulged!

After all of this I got you kinda hooked, right? Well, in Holland PRESTAGE is available at Bruna, Ako, Selexys and Atheneum and worldwide in the greater book and magazine shops. Besides that it's sold at some of the globe's most panache fashion stores as Colette in Paris and Selfridges in London, at over fifty selling points in NYC and more points situated from Amsterdam to Tokyo. So move that bun and get it over to the store to buy this dazzling magazine. You won't regret it, I promise you with all my heart.

It has been way-way too long since my last blogpost, but guess what? My elan is back. With tons of panache of course. Amen to that! It all went blank as I didn't know what to blog about any longer. The case is I had to find the renewed me. Meaning I had to be more selective and search for cool stuff I adore to the fullest. Well, here I am again. Say hai y'all!

My off-blogging time wasn't dull and quiet though. All that happened was there to sparkle me up with a new boost of smashing new energy. Looking back there were two big off-work highlights. Don't the hell tell me why, but these two were my oh-so-sunny relaxing vacation to España and a panache celebration of Halloween with my beloved bestests. A moment of coming to oneself and a moment to realize you have to love the things you DO have. 

I'm a traveller and I love to explore and search for hot-spots and hidden places, but going to our family home in España stays amazing. It's all about doing nothing. Totally nothing. Just embrace the sun and eat delicacies. So that's what I did. 

After a time of clearing my mind and refinding a treasure of new energy, work started again and it started good. Lots of awesome styling work, but still there were some things that had to be done. So there was our annual gathering of dead cocaine icons, pumping whores and wacko serial killers, portaging the name 'Halloween'. It was a thriller night and, gosh, we got our freak on so damn hard. This for me was the end of chapter whereupon all new started. What better way to close a period dying with your bros and sisters and raise from death? I know, barely nothing. Don't believe me? Look at here!

I know this all sounded as if my mental state was in a condition of total wackoness and depression, but it surely wasn't. I just found the rose golden key to new inspiration and energy. MR ELAN PANACHE is back and he'll give you some. Bring it on! BAM.
