DENMARK / day two

A few weeks ago, I travelled through Denmark with many fellow architecture students.  These are my favourite photos of that trip (all of them are taken by me).  Move your mouse on the photos to find out more about what’s shown in the picture.

Day two started with some free time in the morning, which we used to visit the Dansk Arkitektur Center.  Unfortunately this was closed (they were preparing a new exposition), so we just spent our time in the beautiful bookshop.  After a quick stop at one of the many Lego shops, everyone meeted at the Danish Design Center, where we spent the entire afternoon.  The evening ended in Soupanatural,  a bar with organic soups and beer.  Every Sunday, this bar has an event called ‘Sofa Sessions’, where small bands will play an acoustic set.  This night we were very lucky:  A key is a key gave an amazing performance and all 57 of us became big fans!

DENMARK / day one

A few weeks ago, I travelled through Denmark with many fellow architecture students.  These are my favourite photos of that trip (all of them are taken by me).  Move your mouse on the photos to find out more about what’s shown in the picture.

The first day of our Denmark trip was spent in Copenhagen.  We took a big walk around the old center of the city, while passing some cool new buildings as well, and ended the day with a delicious dinner at BioMio.

DSGNRMRKT

Last Saturday, I visited “DSGNRMRKT” at the Modemuseum of Hasselt, a market where young fashiontalent sold unique fashion. I saw some pretty cool stuff!

I’m so in love with that coat by Ti+Hann!

Lots of colors and bold prints at Irene Heldens

Gewoon Lies

Gorgeous lingerie by MajoRey

Lalou Dandine

Fôret Féerique

Black Balloon

‘Marcellekes’,  as we call them, customised by (from left to right) Stijn Helsen, Cesar Casier, Marcel Vanthilt (obviously), Delphine Boël and Vjeze Fur from De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig.  They were auctioned to raise money for Think Pink (an organisation to raise awareness for breast cancer).

All pictures are taken by me.

HOERA! HIP HANDWERK.

When I visited the ModeMuseum Hasselt, they were hosting an indoor designer market called ‘HOERA! Hip Handwerk.’

IMG_3341I will devote this post to sharing my personal favourites.

MR LAPINNMr. Lapin sells lovely brooches (my best friend bought this one as a gift for me!), cute earrings, and adorable etuis.  The illustrations of Mr. Lapin (which you can find on the site) are pretty amazing aswell.  I couldn’t not include this one, quoting The Subs.

LOVELY MARIQUITAAt Lovely Mariquita, you can find the cutest polkadotted skirts and colourful stuffed animals.  Everything she sells just screams ‘cute’!

ART MIND1Art Mind‘s babushka-shaped ceramics express all kinds of emotions.  It’s amazing how many of these little postures she made, all expressing different feelings.  She also makes beautiful hairpins, rings, etc. with this babushka silhouette.

IMG_3367I’ve known Titi + The German Kid‘s stuff for quite some time now, back then she sold tanktops with hand-drawn illustrations, often personalised for the buyer, right now I like her I heart him and I heart her tank tops the most, all though her knitted frisco’s (does that word even exist in english?) and owls are pretty cute too.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything about Polly Rocket on the internet, but I do remember her cute knitted robots and penguins.

As you can see, there are a few designers left that I didn’t mention, unfortunately I didn’t take pictures of every stand and I don’t recall all of their names either… But I’m sure you found something you like between my picks!

IN HER SHOES

Last Sunday, me and my best friend visited the exhibition ‘In her shoes’ at the Modemuseum Hasselt (fashion museum in Hasselt).  IMG_3339

Obviously, this was an exhibition about shoes, shoes, shoes, and… more shoes.

DESIGNERSHOESExtremely expensive designer shoes….  (Pay attention to THE Manolo’s from the Sex and the City movie!)

rem d koolhaas

… architectural shoes…  (Rem D Koolhaas is NOT the same person as the famous architect Rem Koolhaas, it’s his nephew!)

unknown

…beautiful shoes from less famous designers…

helena rietjens… pumps and boots with fabulous decorations…

ellen verbeek

… versatile boots…

… and more conceptual shoes.  You name it, they’ve got it!

highThe shoes were divided into high…

low… and low…

… and were surrounded with the glamour they diserve.

You can find more information at the website of the museum, In Her Shoes will be staying in Hasselt until November 8.

PS.  I apologize for the sometimes poor quality of the pictures!  The museum was rather dark and I couldn’t always use flash since several shoes were behind glass…  I also apologize for not always adding the name of the designer, I don’t remember all of the rather unknown designers.
