The lake & stars

Refinery29 is one of my favourite fashion-related webs: it's fresh, full of news, and always supporting emerging and indie designers. These days, a section called The countdown, features videos of 5 designers and the atmospheres of their studios just before fashion week.

Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman are the designers behind The Lake & stars, one of the brands Refinery29 covered this time.


The label is named after a Victorian term for a woman who is skilled in the bedroom. The pieces are all about details and comfort. Many lingerie houses design beautiful underwear, but forget being practical.

The great thing about The lake & stars is the use of cotton-silk, mixed with other fabrics such as jacquard or PVC. That makes the pieces wearable, yet sexy and feminine.

On a completely different note, thanks to everybody who vote this blog for the fashion bloggers awards. It's such an honour seeing my work valued.

Oh my, I love these pieces.
And by the by, I feel the same way about vintage photographs. Sometimes I spend hours in the pools on Flickr just enjoying them, there's something sweet in them and I love the atmosphere.

I'm really in love with good old fashioned feminine underwear at the moment.

Especially with Stella McCartney's new range out. So subtle and sexy in only a way that only a woman can really understand. ie, no strings in sight!

If grunge is on the comeback, I hope it's a more sophisticated showing this time around! Though, really grunge never left the northwest coast of the United States!
