A lovely project by Iman Whitfield featuring gorgeous pieces from LoveStories ! The video gives insight into a loving relationship from the point of view of ‘the boyfriend’. Little details, stupid things, and charming elements are the things why he’s in love with her, even when that means eating kebab, walking into metro gates, and acting out the same film scene every single day.
Such a lovely new lingerie brand created by fashion/interior stylist Marloes Hoedeman. I have always loved the idea of wearing lingerie as outerwear and that’s exactly what LoveStories is about. Creating a look in which you feel comfortable and sexy at the same time. Visit the flagshipstore in Amsterdam’s ninestreets - Herengracht 296.
Yesterday I finally got to see the movie “Her”, at first I was a bit hesitant because I think Joaquin looks like the creepiest man ever in this movie. But then again when the movie started it was not the story that blew me away.. but wow such good styling, locations, colour choices and music. Amazing, got me inspired immediately !
I am so happy to introduce you to a new monthly category on maiohwn called “Spotlights On” where I’ll be visiting lovely people who inspire me in all sorts of disciplines and take a peek in their lives! This month I would like you to meet Zinaida van Latesteijn, hardworking mom, lover, sister, daughter and friend of many. We started the day buying the most beautiful flowers on the market, picking up Chloé (daughter) from school and ate the best falafel in town at her place. It was such a productive fun day, we even cleaned out her shoe closet for her upcoming sale on Sunday 5th of October. Make sure you don’t miss it!! I’ve already seen some pretty treasures over there…

Oke.. breathe, it’s 2am while I am writing this post because I really cannot believe how it is possible for one shop to contain almost everything I have ever dreamed of! I want to cry in a corner and look at this image until the sun comes up….
My daily make-up routine… I’m such a rookie when it comes to make-up really so I always buy the easiest applicable products that are out there for me. I recently bought this eye brightener from Bobbi Brown which works so well, it has this lipgloss kind of tip which makes it easy to apply. Another one of my daily favourite is my eyeliner from Hema, it’s simply the best!
On September 4th H&M will be introducing their new Studio collection at Vogue Fashion Night Out in Amsterdam. I’ve already spotted some lovely coats and a glittery pants suit which I’m sure will be sold out super fast ! Be there from 18-22hr and make a chance to be featured in the November issue of VogueNL !
I was just leaving the house today and tadaa! there was my funny postman with my new shiny shoes from Asos. I always get super excited when my packages arrive since I mostly do my shopping online. On top of that I was wearing this fluffy soft candy wrapper dress today which made it all just perfect !
Although summer seems to have left us.. this tropical beauty keeps my summer feeling a little bit more alive at home. The weather has been so strange and cold lately that I can’t really figure out what to wear exactly. I did bought this nice metallic knitted top and super soft thick white dress the other week which i’ll do an #ootd with soon !
Bought these two beauty’s on our vacation last week. It feels so long since I’ve worn anything else besides my go to pieces, “my engagement ring” as everyone likes to call it >.< + the bracelet I gifted myself after getting accepted into art school and of course the maiohwn golden necklace. So I thought let’s change it up a little with these two gems from stories.
A collaboration shoot by two fashion design graduate students Dennis Bareiro & Isabella Doelwijt.
“We want to create a new image for fashion that combines all sorts of disciplines in order to inspire other creatives and stimulate future collaborations.”
Both collections were created from different concepts and idealities. The men’s collection by Dennis Bareiro, called S-ET > EP -0:21:39, represents an important snapshot of a video from his childhood. A moment in which he was fully devoted to the time he lived in. The women’s collection by Isabella Doelwijt, called maiohwn, is a reflection of the spatial sense of emptiness set in balance with the invisible presence of your own visualizations.
By putting these two separate collections together they’ve created a daring image of women/menswear, pushing the idea of collaborating and achieving bigger goals by joining forces with a team of creatives.
I am so happy with these two super soft sweaters from Zara, just what I needed ! For a long time I had ignored v-neck sweaters because I really didn’t like them (especially not on men, still!). But now I think it’s kind of sexy in a subtle way on women plus I don’t get that sort of claustrophobic feeling I often get with other sweaters I own…
Soo.. I woke up this morning watching an interview, watch here with Zoe… and omg I love her glasses so much ! Anyone who knows me must know that I have a weakness for glasses, especially when they’re cat eyed ! So I went looking on the internet and yes ! I found them hahha on this website called smartbuyglasses.. My wish-list just keeps on expanding, o dear..
When I lived in Stockholm for a while I went to this perfume store called BYREDO.. and fell for this scent called Seven Veils, it reminded me of something from my past, yet my future… It smelled like the idea of me when I’m older, if that makes any sense ? So I took a sample with me (long time finished), but never got the time to go back and get the bottle. So it’s still on my wish-list as for this nice cardigan and sweater too^^
I just had to post this beautiful thing called Madeleine, an analogue odour camera… wow, the same as a camera records the light information of a visual in order to create an image, this machine records the molecular information of a smell ! So interesting and beautifully designed don’t you think ?
It’s finally here ! My very own maiohwn necklace… totally having a little “carrie” moment overhere ! hihi^^ And I am so happy to say that I may give you 10% discount on your order using the code MAIOHWN. Isn’t that great ?! Be creative and make up your own version at mijnnaamketting.nl
For some reason it always helps to get myself some nice new stationery before starting a new school year. Somehow it gives me a bit more drive and inspiration to start I guess… I got these beauty’s at an online shop called SISORIGINAL, they have a really nice selection of Moleskine products and one of my favorites Furoshiki Shiki on sale too !
Almost forgot to tell you about this fun Marni dress I found the other day ! It reminds me a bit of the dress Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman [the polo match scene]. I am still thinking of ways to wear it for fall though.. it’s getting way too cold already !
I have been looking forever for the perfect fall/winter pink coat that is actually affordable and not as expensive as those beautiful Carven or Dior ones… But today I saw this pretty sandy colored one at Zara and fell quite in love with it, not to mention those heels. Also how gorgeous are these delicate brass bangles from Restored ?!
The perfect activity for me while i’m laying sick in bed these days… House hunting ! I can’t wait for me and my boyfriend to move in together ! We’re finally seriously doing this, and it feels great ! Been doing a lot of home inspiration on the i-net too which gives me even more butterflies. Fingers crossed now for a nice place to call our own home !^^
Yesterday night I celebrated the launch of a new Dutch Magazine called F.A.L.L. Which is founded by a friend of mine Milou Verbeke. The magazine is a mixture of Fashion Art Literature & Lifestyle and will be published 6x a year ! I absolutely love the lay-out of the magazine and I think that the concept will inspire lots of creative people to follow their dreams, maybe even with the help of F.A.L.L. Keep your eyes open for a copy of your own at the smaller book-concept stores near you !
Saw this short film on a friend of mine’s fb the other day. And I’m totally in love with it ! It’s also from the same guy who directed another film I really really like ‘Matthew Frost’ for Jalouse. Watch it here !
The last few hours of 2012, while reading all these best wishes and amazing goals I wonder if anything I wished for last year came true. I think so.. except for that billion dollar wish do… Anyway I’m not going to say my wishes and goals out loud, because then I know for sure they won’t come out. But I do wanna say that I’m grateful for every sad and happy moment 2012 gave us, a little less the sad ones of course.. but hey,
As I once read; without knowing sadness there is no experience of happiness.
It’s finally here ! Our lookbook for COM’BIN’A'BLE s/s ’13 a project I did in collaboration with Dennis Bareiro. The collection is a mix of modernism, vague memories and feelings inspired by people who are comfortable in their way of life through time. It is a story of men and women who show their passion for quality and sustainability in a unique way.
The ability of combining these aspects in a way of living is an aspiration to live by.
I have enjoyed making this collection so much and I’m so grateful for everyone who helped and stood by us throughout this amazing process.
I would like to introduce you to my latest project in collaboration with Dennis Bareiro, Sharon Jane D. & MUNKICLOUD. This is just a small preview of the collection we made, be sure to stay tuned for more !!
Wauw, just spotted these sweaters on instagram and totally fell in love with them! The fit, the prints the pictures and the concept are just right up my alley. The designs were inspired by nature mixed with technology and produced with photoshop, amazing..
Say hello to my new vintage Jil Sander bag, found this one on marktplaats.nl ! The material is suede, so I don’t know if now is the right time to wear it outside with the super cold snowy/rainy weather here in Amsterdam but we’ll see !
So recently I got introduced to this new dutch brand called Mujjo by my brother. He bought this beautiful iPad sleeve on their website, and I totally fell in love with it. The design fits perfectly around the iPad, looks very stylish + gives it great protection. Nowadays there are so many accessories for our devices it’s a bit insane. But this one right here just seems honest, looks pretty and does the job ! Also check out their touchscreen gloves, super handy ^^
The other day I discovered a new secondhand store nearby my house and found these two amazing items ! They are both from a really old collection from h&m, back when it was called “hennes”. Ironicly that same day I had just seen the crazy cool new spring rtw ’13 collection of Loewe, and I thought that somehow my mind was leading me to find something similar without even noticing^^
Yesterday night I had the chance to be at the press launchparty of 9straatjesonline new shopping concept called QRoute. The idea is basically to make the term window-shopping a reality ! You know when you see something really really nice in a window and you gotta have it but the store’s already closed ?! Well now there’s a solution for it ! Just install the 9straatjesonline app, scan the qr-code of the item in the window, checkout with paypal and tadaa ! Your item will be delivered the next day [worldwide]. Sounds pretty nice to me !^^
This summer I went to Paris with the bf for my birthday ! We had such a nice time there. And now with all those pretty Paris Fashionweek pics everywhere on the internet… I really want to go back so so bad !! sigh*
Say hi, to my new raincoat ^^ The skirt I’m wearing is actually made from a towel which my father uses when he’s painting ! I really loved the colors on it, so I turned it into a skirt for today’s outfit post !
I’ve been getting a lot of sweet compliments on my nails lately. So I thought let me show you guys how to do it yourself, in just three steps ! First set your nails with a transparent base coat, then apply the dots with the head of a fine needle. Let your nails dry completely and then finish it off with a new layer of transparent polish. That’s all ! enjoy.
For a long time I’ve wanted to take MAIOHWN to the next level, but somehow I never really did. Last summer however, I finally had the courage to make some decisions and start fresh! Today I’m finally back with the results, and I’m so, so, sooo excited to take you with me on my new adventures!
Together with Nimlog/Munkicloud I’ve built a website for maiohwn that will provide you with an insight into my life, the things I do and most importantly love!
