Aloha, peeps! Shiny Sunday in Belgium means I'm off to shoot a look for this blog! This week & Other Stories launched a new co-lab collection in which they teamed up with legendary Kim Gordon - the iconic artist, writer, musician and co-founder of Sonic Youth. Her true inspiration was her daughter, Coco Gordon Moore, who got to be the face of the collection. A real Mother-Daughter collab I'd say ;) I got the opportunity to shoot one of the pieces that will be in the collection and already share them with you! The collection will be available as off the 31th of August online and in stores. Oh and if you'd like to see a short video about Kim and her daugter Coco, click here.
What to expect of the collection? Outspoken tees and hoodies, silk scarves, and tiny necklaces which are all customized with exclusive graphics created by Gordon herself. "The collection features handwritten artworks that are performative but also exude a vulnerability, contrasting the structure of the clothes."
Let me share one of her quotes of the press release with you: “Dealing with the structured shapes of T-shirts and hoodies in this collection was almost like working with empty canvases. I decided to do pronouns because I like the idea of a word, and the sense of drama surrounding it. Thinking of a word can create an atmosphere, and there’s a certain mystery about it… Today, I think women can curate their environment by what they wear.”
Having a soft spot for shoes, I managed to get myself a new pair of these really cool print sneakers by Made by Sarenza, actually Sarenza's own brand. I've mentionned them before and I must say their service is amazing. You order your shoes and already a few days later, they're on your doorstep.
Finally, the sequin trousers that I'm wearing here have been on my wishlist for a long time. They're from this British brand called One Above Another. I bought the trousers on ASOS, as they were finally on sale. Sad thing though is that you get this prickling sensation on your legs because of the loads of sequins. Still wondering if I should keep them or not. No pain no gain, right?
