We (well, Samia, in any case, and her lovely ambassador Beertje who absolutely rocked both a Spijkers en Spijkers vintage dress AND the Fatima clutch) were lucky enough to attend the first show of the Amsterdam Fashion Week: SS14 SIS by Spijkers and Spijkers. Thanks to the great Maison PR!
‘Do you have to have a reason for loving’, says the caption and for loving Spijkers en Spijkers we are willing to love for any reason, or without it. Whatever they want, really, because we LOVED it!
The collection is clearly inspired by Brigitte Bardot, and specifically the way Kees van Dongen must have seen her, while painting her. This collection takes us to sunny and romantic places in the south of Europe. It makes us want to sip wine in a tiny village near Saint-Tropez, or, why the hell not, in Saint-Tropez itself! Or stroll around in Sevilla, and listen to some Javier Bardem lookalike playing the guitar.
Spring Summer 2014, if you will look like this, can we just skip winter, please?
