Heritage Forward

This fall/winter, Napapijri celebrates their 30-year anniversary with their Heritage Forward concept. The dual name of the concept refers to their history ('Heritage') as well as to the present and future of their brand ('Forward'), which they reworked into this gorgeous coat. Applying this concept to this design, the coat can be worn inside out, by which you get: or the Heritage side (white), or the Forward side (blue). With Heritage, the inspiration for this design was the famous Rainforest jacket and its 80's vibe. Forward on the other hand represents the 'Make it Better' mindset that Napapijri engaged to. "Seeking innovation beyond aesthetics and functionality, this mindset enables solutions that respect our world". Which one is your favorite?

Napapijri certainly is a brand that I love to wear, not only because of their great quality and recognizable designs, also their commitment to our climate and nature in general is striking. Following their ongoing commitment to “Make It Better”, the whole Fall/Winter 2017 collection is 100% fur and down free. 

Insert: most-comfortable-white-shoes-ever-alert. I found these Nike kicks on Sarenza, one of my favorite webshops, and their fit is ah-mazing. One tip that I want to give you: try them before you buy them! I normally have size 37,5 (EU size) in sneakers but for this sneaker, I had to take one size bigger, so 38,5. Beware!

Finally (!), I found a jumpsuit in which I do NOT look as if I'm pregnant. For this unidentified reason, every time I try jumpsuits, they seem to totally misfit me and make me look like I've gained loads of weight. Fun fun fun (sarcastic tone). It has actually not occured since last summer that a jumpsuit fitted me well, so happy kid over here! This one's from the October collection of Q/S Designed by. As said in my previous blogpost about them, the entire fall/winter collection is build up around the city of New York. So every month they will launch new pieces of this collection, which will be in different themes. I'm already excited to talk to you about the next collection of November which will be all about: the Lower East Side! Talk to you soon, peeps!
