Event report #1: Models backstage at our S/S 2012 fashion show

What took us so long? Felt like I had to sleep 3 days straight after the whole event and the cleaning up the day after were done. WE HAD A BLAST! Thanks to all of you who, re-posted the event, shared our links, visited the event (!) and made it so incredible worth all of the effort we and our dedicated team put into it. The photo's taken of our visitors at the wall of fame will soon be posted on our Facebook wall. Since we are still waiting to receive some of the pictures, we will be posting multiple photo reports of the entire event. Starting today with a close-up of our models backstage:

Fashion Week in full swing: Modefabriek DAY 2 pics

As we just opened our pop-up shop @ MC Theater Amsterdam about an hour ago, here's a photo report of our previous pop-up party with Trash & Treasures at the Modefabriek last Monday.

Apart from an overall very exciting time with our little boutique at Trash & Treasures, we used the little extra time we had to run around to inhale some inspiration. We stopped quickly at the NEXT /Cutting Edge platform where we hit the spot of A-COUPLE, a label by young designers Laia en Núria from Spain. They presented their collection named '1st trip: Saigon', a collection inspired by the Vietnam war. Well, a damn good looking war we reckon (pics 1, 2 and 3). They start out using very strict geometric shapes, but use flowing materials, which results in a great juxtaposition. Most remarkable in their collection are the loose knits that hug the body contours perfectly.

Later on, we ran into Robin (23) from Eindhoven (pics below). She works as a dancer and wears clothes from her own (!) label 'Prey of London'. Great style Robin and nice to meet you!

InPress: JUTKA & RISKA's OUT OF SPACE in Volkskrant Magazine

Sorry but I could not wait for the whole article to be available on our website, so here it is on our blog:
Apologies for the poor quality. For the non-Dutch: it's a neat little article on the phenomenon of pop-up stores in which they mention our upcoming pop-up store at the MC Theatre in Amsterdam the 25th of January.

Fashion Week PrepTime: Getting ready for takeoff #9

It's been a great weekend getting more stuff sorted out and planned. We feel like the planets are alining more or less at our pace, we could not have asked for more.

This week our upcoming (25th of January!) fashion show and one day pop-up shop was even mentioned in the Volkskrant Magazine (the magazine that comes with the Saturday Volkskrant newspaper). It was referred to as part of a whole story on the pop-up shop phenomenon in which they gave some tips of shops about to pop-up. Big thank you to the VK, we really appreciate that! If you want to read the full article (in Dutch), you can check it out on our site (direct link will follow soon).

To get you in the mood here's a tune from a band from the 70ties called 'SPACE', we would love to get our hands on record sleeves from this band. Their outfits look incredibly promising. Just like the ladies in this b/w photograph rocking another space inspired look from back in the day.

Goodbye SPACE SUNDAY, get ready for an over the moon Monday!

Fashion Week PrepTime: Getting ready for takeoff #8

"We girls can do anything like Barbie..." Check out this crazy 80ties Barbie commercial from YouTube. It certainly made me feel MUCH better. "We can be the first in outer space, fantastic fun in a far out place...." To get it out of your head, you need to listen to the whole song someone once told me... enjoy ;-)

We even DREAM about it! Only 15 days to go....  it's so strange: on the one hand we cannot wait, on the other we need all time that remains to get the whole event lined up exactly like how we see it in our dreams. Better get back to work now.

Fashion Week PrepTime: Getting ready for takeoff #5

That's what we call great timing ;-) He's back! E.T. Still wandering around the web with our mind in space, we found the following incredible story on 'Lost at E-minor' :

From the Ripley’s file comes this story from Cosham, UK, where 76 year-old Margaret Wells was recently re-united with her full-size handmade E.T doll after it washed up on the shore off Old Portsmouth, five miles away from her home. The doll, which had earlier been stolen from her home, was mistaken for a drowned human, resulting in a frantic call to the local police who returned the doll to Wells: ‘He has lost a finger and looks a bit roughed up. But he has a smile on his face’.

Fashion Week PrepTime: Getting ready for takeoff #4

In the midst of planning out the decor for our Amsterdam shop windows and deciding on the styling for the models presenting our new collection, we like to Google. And even though it does not surprise us one bit (we love it!), SPACE has been a theme in fashion many times before. We giggled when we stumbled upon this set of pictures of the Space Age Helmet Emilio Pucci designed for Braniff Airlines.

If we had to guess I bet we would not have come up with this brilliant story: Emilio Pucci's Bubble Helmet was designed (in the days prior to the air-bridge) to protect the coiffure from wind and rain on the walk from the terminal to the aircraft.

When we just rode our bikes home through the incredibly stormy streets of Amsterdam we certainly wished we had one of our own. These girls definitely look great and so does their hair!
