EVAN Menswear | Rotterdam

Monday, February 5th, it finally happened, the spectacular comeback of designer Evaa Kuik! Her EVAN Menswear fashion show was a great success. Young, daring, controversial as ever, but also colourful and hopeful under the theme of ’The Cry Baby Club’. The idea was to create a new collection not only for men but for the first time also for women. The concept, based on the fascination of the designer for youth cultures, who define their style by outspoken designs in clothes and accessories. At the same time, the collection is an ode to all powerful men and women who have given the designer inspiration during the time of her illness and to fellow sufferers who struggle with the same disease. An impressive label with a strong story-telling.

Evian Fruits & Plants | Évian-les-Bains

Combining natural mineral water from the Alps with a unique pairing of fruit and delicate botanicals is a pretty perfect match! These new Evian flavours come in a beautiful water drop shaped bottle with a concept really focusing on nature fusions. Each of the three flavours mixes one fruit with one plant. The pink bottle is Rose and Grape, yellow is Lemon & Elderflower and red is Raspberry & Verbana. And as much I loved the red bottle and totally on board with every single one of those flavours, I’m a pink lover. Also amazing as a cocktail – gin with lemon, creme de cassis and some of the Evian grape & rose water. Love it! Which flavour is your favourite?
