One of my favourite collections from Paris Fashion Week was from my favourite pair of Dutch twin sisters- Truus and Riet, creators of Spijkers en Spijkers. Their AW10/11 collection is classic and modern and very wearable. Vogue Italia wrote an article about them, which you can see here. They knew camel is huge for winter this year and they incorporated it heavily in their Fall collection. I’ve kept these photos for over 6 months before I could show them to you. But now that the collection is in store, I can disclose these to you to my heart’s content!
Wearing a wool cropped jacket, Miss Sixty top, vintage brocade skirt and YSL ring. The Fall collection was inspired by the movie Metropolis.
This is my favourite piece from the collection. As you know I’m an avid lover of jumpsuits, rompers and playsuits alike. See this post for example. I especially love this Spijkers en Spijkers one because I can wear it in winter, whereas all my other jumpsuits are summer varieties. Here it is featured in a magazine editorial. Exquisite.
This is the ‘Michael Jackson’ jacket which is so-named by me because of its metallic sheen. This jacket is featured on the front cover of their look book. Love it!
These blazers have a semicircle cut-out collar which allows showing off of neck pieces. I like!
Here I am with Truus, one twin sister and one half of the talented designer duo. The jewellery used for their runway is from MAWI (pronounced ‘Moi’) which we also stock, you can see more of their pieces here.
Just a quirky fact on the side: in Melbourne we kiss once on the cheek, in Paris everyone does it twice on both cheeks but apparently the Dutch do it 3 times! That’s why I bumped heads with Truus and missed the 3rd cheek kiss. How embarassing!
Now if you want more than a sneak peak at the collection, you know where to find us. Spijkers en Spijkers, only stocked at Cecylia in Australia.
