I ended up being a little rushed in the morning—I was walking in the Gucci show—so to be honest this outfit was more of a quick decision than something really thought-out. And I had some important appointments, so I had to keep it simple (some Italians get slightly shocked by my color explosions). It’s a Phillip Lim dress with an Erin Fetherston top and a vintage sparkly waistcoat.

I’m really into flowery dresses at the moment. I love finding vintage items with interesting fabrics and patterns that show a little history. I had to go to the airport today—a last-minute job in London, so no more Milan shows for me—and wanted to wear something comfortable and easy. I guess it’s very “hippie traveler.” It’s a vintage dress with a waistcoat I dug out of my dressing-up box from when I was little, with some beads and a necklace I made myself.

    I like Iekeline and not because I’m Dutch myself but in her style I see a lot of my country! The street-style of the young Dutch. Wonderful. I’ve seen better examples than this look on her tho this looks great too. You go Iekeline! I love our models for being such good ambassadors for the Netherland as a stylish country. Because we are and we are underrated!

    Yes I’m one of the shocked Italians by your explosion of colors. Actually I like colored dressess or whatever, but this is a little bit overdone. Maybe caused by the fact that I never was a fan of the hippie culture and their clothing style. Nevertheless, as a model you’re doing great. You Dutch models are wellknown for their attitude the easy way a designer can work with you etc. Actually you’re all down to earth girls. You’re a good successor of Dewi Driegen whom I still miss, okay sometimes she appears in a show, but much lesser then I like.
