These pictures were taken in the Parc de la Cituadella in Barcelona. The parc was build for the world-exhibit of 1888. I love the whole 19th century atmosphere. Everything is huge, bombastic and very, very over the top. With all it's fountains and little ponds, it's the perfect park for a perfect summer day.
When the Vuitton suitcase and trunk factory celebrated its 150th birthday in 2004, they organized an invention competition among their employees. Whoever came up with the most brilliant idea for an extravagant suitcase won. One of the winners was the cake-box, but this one is even better. Take a look on what's inside...
These pictures were taken in the amazing Parc Güell. The park was originally meant to become a small village in Barcelona for factory-workers and other people with small income. Sadly nobody wanted to live in such a "strange and modern" park, so it became just a park. A place to rest, walk and enjoy the view. This outfit shows some of the basics that I like to wear on a holiday: Long trousers, a light blouse, moccasins showing a little bit of my ankles and of course my favorite, second hand sunglasses...
As I was recently browsing through my looks on Lookbook I noticed the immense lack of bow-ties. That's rather strange, since I wear them so often, at least once a week. Even on holidays I couldn't leave them at home. This picture's taken in Barcelona where I've been on vacation last week (hence the period of absence last week.)
I think I have the right to say: The summer season has finally started. The weather is hot. The sun is shining. And people are starting to show some skin. It's about time to educate all fine young men out there, on how (not) to wear those shorts.
Also highly educative for women...
