How to: Festival Fever

How to: Festival Fever

Read more...

Coachella might be over, but worldwide festival fever has officially begun. I bet a million girls by now have frantically cut and ripped their jeans, rummaged through vintage stores to find the perfect fringed Kimono and applied tons of bumble & bumble surf spray to shine on muddy, plastic-beer-cup covered ground, instead of a red carpet.

I love a good hippie vibe reinventing itself every year, after all the only place to rather mess up your outfit (and definitely ruin your shoes) is a music festival. Psychedelic colors and flowery hair bands still work, as does anything with feathers applied, a hem withdrawn, and an instagram retro filter to take the right selfie - very preferable at sunset.

Then again: since Kate Moss legendary stepped out at Glastonbury festival in Hunter Boots, sporting the “I just had sex backstage”-look, we all know that the only fashion item needed to hone any festival look is a rock star husband. I’m working on it.

Art is my challenging and beloved heroine, the sister I always turn to when other inspiration seems to fail (no, am not talking the art of high heels: this never disappoints).

It's the fine art, the "haven't seen that yet", the thinking out of the box that I'm referring too. Now that the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam has just reopened, and with an interview with queen Vivienne Westwood in mind ("Visiting galleries is an investment in yourself"), I'm full of anticipation and drag my (also very inspiring) friend Pieter to see some mind-blowing contemporary masterpieces. We were actually planning to stay forever, and are excited like little children, only to find the Museum's doors closed: but yaaay, bar opened.

So instead of enjoying the exhibition "Beyond Imagination", we indulge in something else (and very much "beyond limits"): wine. Very stimulating for coming up with our own work of art, which is why by the end of the night I find myself INSIDE a box, my friend fumbling with his iPhone, both again like little children: giggling that is. Anyway, art has to be done forward and understood afterwards, right?
