A Fashionable Christmas | Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store

Now that it feels cold outside and the days are getting shorter, I'm realy looking forward to Christmas.

The Flagship Store by Normann Copenhagen is decorated for Christmas as from November.

This year, the theme is a merry fashionable Christmas where chic black and white are combined with elegant gold and silver.

Love the way they used the Pocket Organizers to make an Advent calendar in a fun way.

Flavourites Live 2014

In the beautiful former industrial factory Kromhouthal in North Amsterdam I admired last Saturday around 160 web shops with beautiful fashion, interior accessories and jewelry at the Event Flavourites Live. 
It felt like walking through a large covered souks!

One of my personal favourite was the Pikaplant: these are no-maintenance indoor plants. They recycle the water and air contained in their Jar. Also very innovative and beautiful to see were the wonderful Air Plants hanging perfectly along the large industrial windows. With Air Planting you plant your plants in the air instead of in a pot, and because the plant filters chemicals from the air and adds oxygen, you also plant fresh air. Maintenance: 1x weekly spraying with water. 
it was a fun shopping day and it's always nice to see the shop items in real life!

& Other Stories | shopping in Amsterdam

Finally I had the possibility to admire & shop in the newly opened & Other Stories store in Amsterdam (the opening was in October). A brand under the H & M group proving a more high end and luxury line, but still very affordable, influenced by elements of Scandinavian fashion style. 

The shop consists of 650 square meter (yay!), spread over two floors where items like ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, beauty, accessories and jewelry are pretty divided in different sections. Launched in 2013 and chain stores among others in Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Milan, Paris and Stockholm. & Other Stories is simply stunning and beautiful light what makes shopping very pleasant. Styled with lots of marble, industrial details, green plants, light wood and beautiful fashion photos : you understand a walhalla to make snap shots with my phone. 
& Other Stories is really a store that you can not miss if you are in Amsterdam !

Luckily for us they also have a great online shop :

address: Heiligeweg 26-28, close to the Kalverstraat shopping street.
