Project Description

De kers op de taart, dat is een oorbel voor een outfit. Als erkenning hiervoor schreef ik een Love Note aan sieradenmerk Justine Clenquet: een Frans merk dat fijne, minimalistische ontwerpen maakt. Love Notes is een langdurig project dat steeds een ander ‘favoriet item’ in het zonnetje zet, dit is deel 7 van de serie. Samen met fotograaf Laila Cohen ontwikkelde en produceerde ik dit concept, dat we publiceren op Imprint Mag: het online magazine dat high-end duurzame mode en design viert. Lees de Love Note hieronder en bekijk hem hier in zijn geheel.

We love our fashion. Noted. 

Love Notes is a joined project by fashion writer Lisa Goudsmit and photographer Laila Cohen. The series exists of editorial photographs, created with the help of stylist Anne Mertens, and  – of course – love notes. Those small letters express the deep feelings we have for the objects we shine a light on in the photos. Our favourite jeans for example, the ever-perfect striped top, and the parka that makes us feel like we can make it through the rain. (You can start singing here Mariah) Appreciating the items that surround us were status quo decades ago – as was saving for that one piece you really, really wanted to get for your wardrobe. Nowadays, many consumers seem to have lost the contact with the clothing on their backs. And with the bags on their back, for that matter. We want to rejuvenate that sentiment for our wardrobes, especially for the items we invest in. Enjoy these Love Notes and go ahead, write your wardrobe one as well.

You have so much charisma, one of you is enough.

Dear earring,

It’s true what they say; you really are the icing on the cake. If my outfit is a pie, you are the cherry. Call me a Christmas tree, but you are my favourite decoration. With you I feel like a precious Parisienne, a classy lady you know. Honestly, I’ve never been a look-at-me-and-my-big-earrings kinda girl, but ever since I found you, my ears feels naked without you. You are not an ordinary hoop or chain – you are both. You are elegant and edgy, shiny and sophisticated. You have so much charisma, one of you is enough. So Thank you. Thank you for framing my face and making me feel like a true piece of art, like you are yourself.
