Vogue Fasion Night for Fashion lovers

If you are in Amsterdam on September 13 2012 then here is something for you if you are a Fashion lover: Vogue is having a Fashion Night on September 13 in collaboration with the Bijenkorf, one of  Amsterdam biggest and most beautiful stores. What an amazing shop window at the Bijenkorf this is. I love the reflection of the houses in the window.... those are the moments I love living the city live.

Hudson River (closed down)

You might wondering what is happening in the picture above... It is a scene in one of the little streets downtown.... those quiet streets, where people sit and eat outside on a nice Summer day. And those days shop owners take their newest finds outside to work on.

Yesterday I made some pictures at Hudson River, a shop in the center of Amsterdam filled with vintage furniture and Americana... The perfect place if you love huge metal industrial signs and  other unusual furniture and decoration for your home. Every few months a container full of American finds, all collected by the shop owner himself is shipped to Amsterdam. It is also the address to shop stars like I have on my kitchen wall!


Located on Haarlemmerdijk 39, Restored is all about beauty, balance and originality.Restored focus on representing talented young designers, and offering them a platform to bring their products and visions to a wider public.

In the store you will find beautiful garments, accessories, items for your interior, magazines and more. The products are manufactured with attention to craftsmanship. They have innovative details, are hand made ​​and produced in small quantities.

I love to browse this shop for little star pendants for my necklace and it's my address for Anthology and Frankie magazine.

New Amsterdam City guide

                                                      © Amsterdamnext.com  
A new updated city guide - Version August 16 2012 - is now up for download.
I also finally made a beginning with the Dam + Spui areas where you will find Concept store Options, H & M Home, Zafra and Mariska Meijers. But there is still a lot to write and photograph.

At Utrechtsestraat I added Hutspot! And the new home for A store without a name is to be found at the Haarlemmerstraat. And do have a look at Lodsh in the Leidseplein area, a new store with a home collection that is based on global influences. Please do let me now if you come across something really cool in town... meanwhile enjoy your stay!

Update: Hutspot is now closed but will re-open in December 2012 at Van WOu straat 4
