Denham Showcase store this month | If it's not Indigo it's Black

At Denham they are delighted to have secured the iconic corner-shop location at the intersection of the Prinsengracht and the Runstraat. The new location creates a dynamic visual link between Denham’s mens store at Prinsengracht 495 and its womens store at Runstraat 17.

Guide update | De negen straatjes | Nine streets

De 9 Straatjes (The 9 Streets / Alleyways) is a collective name given to the nine cosy and picturesque shopping alleyways in the Amsterdam Canal Belt connected by bridges. Next to a big variety of shops, from unique and well established fashion labels, to specialized interior shops and everything in between. The area is filled with great bars, restaurants and coffee corners. In this area a new shop can pop up any week. I collected some of my favorites and made some new pictures.

ELLE Inside Design becomes ELLE Festival

Inside design becomes ELLE Festival, one festival combining ELLE , ELLE food and ELLE Decoration | Amsterdam June 27-29-2014

De tiende editie van Inside Design Amsterdam, afgelopen september, was een feesteditie. Bijna 150 ontwerpers presenteerden hun werk in designzaken, metrostations, boekwinkels en koffiebars in de Amsterdamse binnenstad. En voor het eerst in tien jaar was er niet alleen ruimte voor interieur, maar ook voor mode en food. Dat beviel zo goed, dat we in dit ELLE jubileumjaar nog een stap verder gaan: vanaf nu gaat Inside Design Amsterdam gebroederlijk samenwerken met zusjes ELLE en ELLE  Eten, en maken we er samen één groot feest van onder de nieuwe naam ELLE Festival.

ELLE festival, het lekkerste mode- en designevent van het jaar, georganiseerd door ELLE, ELLE Eten en ELLE Decoration.

De Jordaan & de 9 straatjes in hartje Amsterdam.
Gevestigde namen en jong talent uit de wereld van design, mode en food presenteren hun kunsten en diensten vanuit verschillende ELLE-huizen én in de straten van Amsterdam. Daarnaast viert een aantal winkels het festival mee! 

27 - 29 juni, het eerste weekend van de zomer, als de dagen het langst en de nachten het lekkerst zijn.

Design Icons | Get a free ticket for you and a friend | February 8-9 '14

After a successful first edition in 2012 |see my post here|, Design Icons will return annually as of 2014. The much awaited upcoming edition will take place on February 8 + 9, once again in the beautiful venue of De Overkant. This former shipyard has been restored into a charming event location. Situated on the North shore of ’t IJ, there is a beautiful view to the city center.

The industrial atmosphere of De Overkant is the ideal setting to showcase the design icons of the past century. 60 dealers from all over Europe will gather, offering their finest vintage design pieces from the 1930s - 1980s. A diversity of objects will be presented: from well-known classics to anonymous designs, with Eames next to Mies van der Rohe and from Italian-chic to raw industrials.

In collaboration with Design Icons we have a free ticket for you and a friend to come to 'De Overkant' and admire all these design icons yourself. Simply leave a comment below and we will pick a winner next week! | comments closed |Congratulations Deborah Bos, enjoy! |
