In the campaign 'My Town My Tracks' thee creatives from different cities around the globe talk about their favourites around town. Tokyo was up first, but this time around Onitsuka Tiger looked towards the low lands and asked three DJs for their story: Olivier Weiter, Miss Melera and Arjuna Schiks. They talk about their Amsterdam favourites below, but check out the Tokyo version of the campaign first! (..more)
Some people think sleep is a waste of time. But I’m a person who values their rest. Hell, if I have nothing to do, I’ll happily spend the day snoring in bed. But not too long ago, I had to drag myself out of the warm little nest I made to attend to opening of one of Amsterdam’s best new shop additions; Urban Outfitters. (..more)
Everybody that knows me will tell you: I haven’t got the faintest idea of time. I’m pretty much always late, although, since I turned 25, there was some improvement. Apparently, you really do grow up a bit with time (pun fully intended). (..more)
Girls, women, let’s get real: not everyone of us is blessed with a booty that makes 50 Cent rap about ‘them apples’. Fortunately, after the push-up bra, Levi’s invented jeans that push your butt to new heights. Literally.
I’m a sucker for Scandinavian design. Although Danish, Swedish and Norwegian brands have been popping up in a variety of Dutch stores for a while now, not many of them have a store of their own. But I have some good news for my fellow Northern enthusiasts, and fashion aficionados in particular: Danish fashion brand Samsøe & Samsøe has opened its first store outside of Scandinavia, and it is located in our very own Utrechtsestraat!

Lately it seems like we can’t see the wood for the trees with all those markets and pop-up stores we HAVE to go to. So I’m very sorry to have you strolling around and emptying your wallet again, but I couldn’t keep this market a secret from you.
We like young people who aren’t scared to take a risk. As an Artmanagement student Kim (22) already took a sabbatical to work for an event organisation, but after the words ‘We can’t pay you any more’, she had two choices: “I could go and work at Albert Heijn, or make the dream of owning my own second-hand store a reality.” And that’s what she did, which we are all too pleased about because it gave Amsterdam a new gem with Het Kaufhaus.

Once upon a time there were two young women aspiring to make people think, but even more so to make them laugh. Their combined efforts resulted in an awesome new brand, called F I S H & W O O D S, where they present you with seasonal collections of printed bags that do just that. (..more)
A couple of months ago, two friends called Isabella and Fleur decided to start a jewellery brand. Inspired by female strength, mythical stories and in particular the Amazons they designed a new line, which represents everything we love about being a woman. (..more)
Now there are some things that I wish I could pull off but can’t. Nata Ryzh’s collection is one of those things. Sure, there are some pieces that could work (the less bohemian ones in the beginning), but that seventies vibe never really did the trick for me, unfortunately. I do think everybody else should wear it, and make the streets of Amsterdam an even better and happier place to look at (while making me green with envy). (..more)
