A C C E S S O R I E S / Leather Goods

For the first time in a long time I felt greedy and my wish list got substantially longer in a few hours. Dutch department store De Bijenkorf invited me to take a look at the new arrivals of their newly acquired brands. Luxury shopping in Amsterdam had been almost non existent since they started stocking up on everything from Givenchy to Phillip Lim, Margiela and Acne. It is even said that thanks to De Bijenkorf we have a Dutch Vogue, as labels only want to advertise in countries where their products are available, and since a little while they now are.

What I was most impressed by was the collection of leather goods, a perfect mix of timeless staples and pieces with iconic status. Yet still with a very Dutch feeling to it; nothing too crazy, seasonal or embellished, but all investment pieces. Very 'Degelijk' which does not have an english translation but which basically means something solid, reliable and long lasting. (The only thing my mom cares about when buying shoes. - Must. Be. Degelijk.) I loved to see these luxe labels in this context, my favorites were both Wang's: an asymmetric pair of pointy pumps and the Kori boots with the mirrored cut out heel.

There is nothing retail-wise, as satisfying as a quality leather goods.

I like the cleanliness and the marble backdrops. SO nice, I always wanna redecorate my home and furniture whenever I visit your site Ivania! Btw check out my new Acne Studios outfit post on how we're tired of making statements with our clothes and prefer to have them say "I've finally shut up" lol. Plus there's a GIF of me twerking, HAHAAahahaha...

Ik heb me een tijdje afgevraagd wat de designer items in de Bijenkorf precies deed werken in een land als het onze, behalve het feit dat je er gigantisch hebberig van wordt natuurlijk. Maar jij slaat de spijker op z'n kop! Ze kopen inderdaad stuk voor stuk hele degelijke doe-maar-normaal-dan-doe-je-al-gek-genoeg-items in. En nu ik er over nadenk doen ze dat eigenlijk wel heel goed. Sterker nog na dit stukje ben ik er nog meer van overtuigd dat ik gewoon voor die designer shoes moet gaan waar ik al minstens drie keer voor naar de Bijenkorf ben geweest. ;)
