I've been trying to wrap my head around what this week was like for the past 3 days and it has't been that simple. I was in Amsterdam for just 2 days, but it felt like forever as Christina, Kim, Sonia, Kaila and I were frisked away from morning 'till night, seeing as much of the city as we possibly could. To say the least, it was probably the most exciting & wonderful trip I've ever been on.
Ever since blogging became a part-time thing for me, I've wanted nothing more than to travel and see as much of the world as possible through the gaze of fashion & art. After reading endlessly on art history and constantly wondering about how much culture has made Fashion such a wonderfully varied industry, I've been itching to escape NYC- even the States in general for that matter- in search of what it means to be in an environment and how that shapes your perspective on the world around you. With Johannes Vermeer being my favorite Renaissance painter, I've always wanted to see Holland in person, and I really couldn't believe how accurate the paintings I've seen all my life are.
Amsterdam is a city situated around canals, as you might have guessed, and the interplay of water, air and sun is absolutely magical throughout the whole city. From our first day touring around the city, I couldn't believe how insanely beautiful the light looked everywhere we went. It peeked through the early Fall trees and bounced off of the water like nothing I've ever seen. Christina and I managed to get ourselves VERY lost when we broke off to explore and do some vintage shopping, but that is always my favorite thing to do in a new place, so I ca't complain. I can honestly say I've never been so drawn to a city before.
Which brings me the very reason we found ourselves there in the first place: Hanazuki. After a few hours of strolling around the city and a nice lunch, we made it over to This is a Robot Studios, where we were introduced to this very, very new brand that follows the adventures of Hanazuki, a little moon flower girl who tackles the dream world with the help of all sorts of little cute creatures. More on that in the next post, though, Hanazuki's tha bomb!
