Vans in collaboration with Sandy Liang

Accessories A trend setter since 1966, Vans is always ahead of the curve. For spring, the ‘Off The Wall’ brand partners with New York designer Sandy Liang on a fashion forward collection of footwear and apparel. Known for mixing materials like fleece with unique colors and prints, Sandy Liang draws inspiration from her hometown New York and its downtown cool kids, her grandma, and the hand-me-downs of her youth. The quirky collaboration features unique takes on five classic Vans styles plus a head to toe apparel including a hoodie, tee, bike shorts, bucket hat, and crossbody bag.Across each of the Vans x Sandy Liang footwear iterations, materials play a defining role. From fleece-like cheetah prints to metal jewelry affixed directly to the upper, each is as unique as the last. With a built-in ankle bracelet and multiple metal charms sewn directly to the pink velour upper, the Sandy Liang Era stands out as the hero of the lot. Also noteworthy is the similarly styled Old Skool (a second Old Skool colorway features black butterfly art and custom laces), and a cheetah print Classic Slip-On Platform and Vans Sport.On the apparel side, the theme of ‘90s nostalgia continues with marbled colorways and butterfly iconography. The Sandy BF Hoodie features an exaggerated boyfriend fit with novelty eyelets on the hood some with piercing detailing along with embroidered and screen-printed graphics. The Sandy LS BF Tee is made of heavy cotton jersey with novelty wash and discharge bleach art Butterfly graphic on chest and is finished with Checkerboard sleeves. The cycling inspired Sandy Bike Short is a cotton spandex blend with novelty snakeskin print and 7” inseam. A polka dot printed twill Bucket Hat with contrast satin lining and faux sherpa fashion bag—the Sandy Crossbody—featuring a single adjustable strap, exterior zip pocket, elastic cording for extra carrying options, metal hardware and a logo patch mounted on leather rounds out the accessories.   The Vans x Sandy Liang collection will be available in February 2020.

Dr. Martens teams up with A Bathing Ape

Accessories The iconic, original Dr. Martens boot 1460 will turn 60 this year, and that may be celebrated. Starting this month, a series of collaborations with 12 world-famous brands follows. Each of these brands has made its own design for the 1460 boot. The first partner in this series is the Japanese streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape'.  Six decades of self-expression. Six eras in which Dr. Martens has grown with the subcultures that embraced them. Sixty years in which they made their carriers stronger. Dr.Martens has seen the world change drastically. But one thing has remained the same all the time: the 1460 boot. Over the past 60 years, the distinctive silhouette has been shaped and toppled by countless subcultures and freethinkers. The boots mean something else to everyone who tightens their laces. So Dr. Martens transferred the 1460 boat (not only in honor of their anniversary, but also because of the start of a new decade) to 12 innovative and world-famous brands, labels and designers. Together with them Dr. Martens their iconic silhouette in a new jacket. In 2020 a brand new boat will be released once a month. The legendary streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape' is the first to take a turn. Dr. Martens has revived this creative relationship and is now working with them for the fourth time. BAPE (A Bathing Ape) was founded in 1993 in Tokyo, Japan. The origin of BAPE lies in the Harajuku culture of the early 90s. Their most distinctive design, the 'BAPE 1st Camo', became a legendary status symbol.  BAPE has often used British culture as a source of inspiration. For the 1460 REMASTERED collaboration series, they have made the perfect mix of their own legendary camouflage print and dr. Martens' classical DNA. With this they bring an ode to the history of both brands.  This special edition has eight lace eyes and a black nose of soft leather that is flanked by a green BAPE first camo print. The boot symbolizes the best of both brands. The famous BAPE STA  logo runs across the center of the boot. The yellow BAPE logo on the hi-loop completes the picture.  We are excited to share with you the coming collaboration later this year on @numero_netherlands. The boot is available from 25 January 2020 - in very limited numbers - in selected stores and online via drmartens.com.  The iconic, original Dr. Martens boot 1460 will turn 60 this year, and that may be celebrated. Starting this month, a series of collaborations with 12 world-famous brands follows. Each of these brands has made its own design for the 1460 boot. The first partner in this series is the Japanese streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape'.  Six decades of self-expression. Six eras in which Dr. Martens has grown with the subcultures that embraced them. Sixty years in which they made their carriers stronger. Dr.Martens has seen the world change drastically. But one thing has remained the same all the time: the 1460 boot. Over the past 60 years, the distinctive silhouette has been shaped and toppled by countless subcultures and freethinkers. The boots mean something else to everyone who tightens their laces. So Dr. Martens transferred the 1460 boat (not only in honor of their anniversary, but also because of the start of a new decade) to 12 innovative and world-famous brands, labels and designers. Together with them Dr. Martens their iconic silhouette in a new jacket. In 2020 a brand new boat will be released once a month.

Fosbury & Sons opens in Amsterdam

Fosbury & Sons opens in Amsterdam

Design Fosbury & Sons has moved into the former Prinsengrachtziekenhuis (Prinsengracht Hospital) in Amsterdam. The final redevelopment phase has been completed - the building, listed as national monument, has been entirely transformed into stylishly appointed offices and work places, inspiring meeting rooms, event spaces, and a restaurant where entrepreneurs and companies can meet and mingle. Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht, the first international location of the eponymous Belgian co-working concept, occupies 6,000 sqm. (64,583 sq.ft.) of an imposing monumental building. The iconic premises offer room for more than 250 companies and entrepreneurs. The founders of companies such as Blendle, Van Moof, TicketSwap, Ace & Tate, Top Notch, Tony Chocolonely, The Media Nanny and Temper are among the first members of Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht. ‘It’s our first location outside Belgium’, says Stijn Geeraets, co-founder of Fosbury & Sons. ‘It speaks for itself to launch in a leading business hub such as Amsterdam. While researching suitable locations we came across the building’s owners, Millten (Foppe Eshuis and Lennard Rottier) and Million Monkeys (Maarten Beucker Andreae). As partners we opted for a joint venture to operate the former Prinsengrachtziekenhuis. It’s almost unreal that we’ve been able to occupy this beautiful canalside building with so much history. Obviously, we treated it with utmost respect, and we set out to make it a special place for locals. Also, we believe the Netherlands are ready for our vision of beautifully appointed work places with a professional yet welcoming atmosphere’. Art & Design The interior design of Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht has been created by design duo Going East. The aim to restore the structure’s former glory and grandeur has been used as a starting point. ‘We decided to reinstall parquet flooring in the suites, just like we had seen in old photographs’, says Going East designer Anaïs Torfs. We intended to recreate an authentic Italian palazzo atmosphere alongside the canals. We emphasized the beautiful arches and some of the dilapidated ceilings have intentionally been retained. This has resulted in an interior where contrasts take centre stage: old vs. new and classic vs. modern, along with detailing in colourful marble, rich wool fabrics and vintage design. Beside design, art plays a pivotal role in the interior design. In collaboration with Grimm Gallery and The Ravestijn Gallery the communal spaces are adorned by modern art and photo works. On display are eye-catching sculptures by American artist Nick van Woert, all curated by Grimm Gallery. Additionally, works by lensman Koen Hauser (The Ravestijn Gallery) are presented which feature a bold and contemporary take on still life. Last but not least, a series of custom artworks by artist Sarah Yu Zeebroek add a Belgian touch. Fosbury & Sons Café Next to the stylish offices and meeting rooms, members are able to meet at the Fosbury & Sons Café. Occupying 230 sqm. (2,476 sq.ft.), it is situated alongside an idyllic and sheltered inner garden. Members can indulge in special dishes and international classics, all freshly prepared on a daily basis by its very own chef. The venue can also be accessed through a half-day membership (breakfast or afternoon treat included) or a full-day membership (lunch included). The building which Fosbury & Sons occupies a 19th century building which was known as Prinsengrachtziekenhuis (Prinsengracht Hospital) until 2014. Since 1994 it served as a branch of Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis (OLVG Hospital) and gained the status of outpatient clinic. The last beds disappeared two years later. In 2014 the building was sold to Millten and Million Monkeys. Commissioned by real estate developer Millten, and in collaboration with architect Roberto Meyer of MVSA Architects, the monumental building has been thoroughly renovated over the course of five years. About Fosbury & Sons Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht is the first branch outside Belgium of Fosbury & Sons. The company was founded in 2016 by Serge Hannecart, Stijn Geeraets and Maarten Van Gool who set out to radically change the office world with the motto ‘Not Your Ordinary Office’. Following the first location at the WATT Tower in Antwerp, a 7,000 sqm. (75,347 sq.ft.) was launched on the premises of a modernist landmark building in Brussels by Polish-Belgian architect Constantin Brodzki. Additionally, Fosbury & Sons opened two other venues in Brussels in 2019. Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht is the first Dutch location of the Antwerp-based company. A second Dutch location in the Amsterdam Westerdok area is currently being developed and is expected to open by the end of this year. Additional branches are to open shortly in Antwerp, Valencia, Ghent, and The Hague. Fosbury & Sons is the answer to bland office space and monotonous work by offering its members not only a pleasant environment, but also full autonomy, flexibility, connectivity with other entrepreneurs and companies, and a necessary dose of fun.

Tommy Hilfiger reveals the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collaboration

Fashion Tommy Hilfiger is pleased to reveal the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collaborative collection co-designed by iconic American designer Tommy Hilfiger and six-time Formula OneTM World Champion and global brand ambassador for TOMMY HILFIGER men’s, Lewis Hamilton.The fourth collaborative collection between the American designer and British racing driver makes positive strides forward in sustainable practices and embraces the notion of “Style For All” - a belief that great style erases all boundaries in gender, age, ethnicity and body type. The Spring 2020 TommyXLewiscollection will be available on a gender-neutral tommy.com page and in select TOMMY HILFIGER stores and wholesale locations globally starting February 16, 2020. Fans of the brand can visit tommy.com from January 21, 2020 for a sneak peek of select styles that can be added to wish lists before the collection becomes available globally. In the lead-up to the collection’s launch, two unique pieces will be released online, providing a taste of the greater Spring 2020 collection’s aesthetic. The utilitarian TommyXLewis backpack will drop on January 28, 2020 and the TommyXLewis flag crew neck sweater will drop on February 5, 2020.  The Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collection fuses two worlds: the brand’s strong menswear heritage with Lewis’ streetwear style, celebrating iconic designs that embody the modern American wardrobe. Loyalty sits at the heart of the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collection, and is reflected in pieces that nod to classic archive styles. Unexpected detailing, such as reversibility, adds function to classic outerwear silhouettes; new fits are seen on hoodies and cargo pants. Military blues and greens blend with neutral tones and neon pops, infusing the classic tracksuit, bomber jacket and field jacket with a modern edge. The Spring 2020TommyXLewis collaborative collection is more conscious than ever, with over 75% of the apparel featuring sustainable elements, including 100% organic cotton. Sorona®, which is made from a plant-based fiber, was used as a sustainable alternative to down. The collection also utilizes lower impact washes and recycled textiles on styles including denim pants and shorts, woven tops and the bleached trucker jacket. The collection will premiere at the TOMMYNOW runway experience at Tate Modern, The Tanks on February 16, 2020 in London, United Kingdom at 8 p.m. GMT.   Tommy Hilfiger is pleased to reveal the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collaborative collection co-designed by iconic American designer Tommy Hilfiger and six-time Formula OneTM World Champion and global brand ambassador for TOMMY HILFIGER men’s, Lewis Hamilton.The fourth collaborative collection between the American designer and British racing driver makes positive strides forward in sustainable practices and embraces the notion of “Style For All” - a belief that great style erases all boundaries in gender, age, ethnicity and body type. The Spring 2020 TommyXLewiscollection will be available on a gender-neutral tommy.com page and in select TOMMY HILFIGER stores and wholesale locations globally starting February 16, 2020.

Moco Museum

Art Moco Museum in Amsterdam is a boutique museum with a wide range of inspiring modern and contemporary art, focusing on bringing modern and contemporary art to the general public. After opening its doors in 2016, Moco has committed to exhibiting iconic works by internationally renowned artists. The collection consists of unique street art pieces and modern, and contemporary art by Daniel Arsham, Banksy, Basquiat, Haring, Hirst, JR, Koons, Kusama, KAWS and many more exciting artists with which they  offer visitors an unparalleled collection of subversive art in which irony and humour are used to reflect on modern society. A one-of-a-kind experience aimed at a wide audience, a visit to Moco is a true eye-opener among being a must place to see in Amsterdam. Moco Museum uses the power of art to challenge the norm, to reveal the truth, to broaden consciousness and to challenge the world around them.  The Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum has made its home in Villa Alsberg, a townhouse overlooking Museumplein in the heart of Amsterdam. The building was designed in 1904 by Eduard Cuypers, nephew of the renowned Pierre Cuypers who designed Amsterdam’s Central Station and the Rijksmuseum, which is at the opposite end of the square. This privately-owned residence was one of the first family homes built along Museumplein and retained this function until 1939. Subsequently, the house was let to priests who taught at the Saint Nicolas School in Amsterdam, and later it was converted into an office for a law firm. Moco Museum is the private initiative of Lionel and Kim Logchies. For over 20 years, the art couple has worked with international art legends. From Picasso to Koons, from Hirst to Warhol. Creating the Moco Museum has allowed the entrepreneurial couple to display incredible works of art that would otherwise remain private and unseen to the general public. The majority of the art has been made available to the museum by an international network of collectors. A part of the MOCO earnings will be donated to charities that are close to the couple's hearts. The museum is truly a must place to see  for visitors as it includes a lot of incredible, fun and exciting art both indoor and on their exterior garden. The artist selection is wide and captures everyone's attention. The museum could not have any better location that it does, normally there are cues, however we suggest pre-buying the tickets online ansd skipping the line at the entrance. The building has 3 floors full of paintings, statues and incredible art instalations all around you everywhere you look inside; the museum also has many pieces presented on their beautiful garden surronding the building.  Moco Museum is known for hosting many great events through-out the year. While there also check-out their boutique on the lower floor with a big selection of art, posters, books that you can purchase for your own collection. Currently the museum exhibitions range from Banksy, Kaws, Arsham and many more; while incredibly exciting exhibitions are coming to Moco very soon including many female artists. More about it soon on our website and social media. for current exhibitions, tickets and more information go to mocomuseum.com and @mocomuseum on social media.   Moco Museum in Amsterdam is a boutique museum with a wide range of inspiring modern and contemporary art, focusing on bringing modern and contemporary art to the general public.
