I'm wearing a complete look (except the shoes) by Q/S Designed by. In one of my previous blogpost, I have already been talking about them. Their aim is to attract young and stylish people who aren't afraid of trying something new and help them express theirselves. The entire fall/winter collection is build up around the city of New York. Now I feel like I need to visit New York ASAP! I've actually never been to the city that never sleeps. Why's that? Wellll, as I've heard so many stories about this city, I kind of feel like I want to go for about two weeks and discover the ENTIRE city. Mission impossible, I know, but I do want to keep this trip for a point in my life where I can skip life here in Belgium for about two weeks and (maybe more important) can afford a two-weeks-trip to New York. 

Back to Q/S now, every month they will launch new pieces of this collection, which will be in different themes. For example, the September pieces are inspired by Central Park. It is described as "Q/S designed by Women goes outdoors in Central Park and creates an urban, streetwear inspired and slightly preppy autumn collection with cosy outfits made from fake fur velour, hairy yarns, velvet and chenille. The preppy effect is introduced through menswear fabrics with check, pinstripe or salt and pepper patterns on coats and gents‘ style trousers and is fashionably broken by unusual combinations, for instance by adding a casual hoodie or a blouson-style jacket." 

SPOILER ALERT: for November Q/S will have the Lower East Side as their main inspiration, so let's start that countdown. In their press release, the following tips were given so I thought I should share them with you too!
