Leendert meets Ingrid - Stijlmeisje

Living as a couple, working as a team. That’s the credo of illustrators/designers Leendert Masselink and Ingrid Bockting. For over 20 years the two work for a large variety of clients; ranging from fashion magazines to business magazines, from bookcovers to culture campaigns. But how satisfying working in commission is, the desire grew to create […]

Creating a visual platform by doing that. And today I can introduce to you a new Stijlmeisje-contributor: Eline. Eline is an illustrator who focuses on the small things in life.

Spice it up

Poivre Piquant - L'Artisan Parfumeur - Stijlmeisje

I rarely write about things concerning beauty. The one and only reason for that is because I’m quite a layman when it comes to make up and cosmetics… Why spend a lot of money on makeup if one looks far more beautiful without it? It’s not that I’m a proclaimer of the ‘wear-no-makeup-movement’ or something, but I just […]

Let’s start the weekend (and especially end this very, very rainy and windy workweek) with a big smile. Well, it certainly made me smile… Ever heard of Yoga Joes?

Algaemy

Algaemy - Blond and Bieber - Stijlmeisje

Although one day is far too short…. so much innovative, cool stuff to see over there! One of the things which caught my eye was ‘Algaemy‘ by Berlin based […]

The Future of Fash..

The Future of Fashion is Now - Stijlmeisje

If there’s one new exhibition at the moment which you can’t ignore these days (at least, if you live in the Netherlands) than it’s The Future of Fashion is Now at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Posters of this exhibition are hanging everywhere in the streets. So I was delighted that last week I was invited to come to Boijmans Van […]
