Amsterdam Trip 2006

We still talk about all the fun we had in Amsterdam and how inspiring it was. We went in March of 2006 and fell in love with how the city was completely filled with bicycles and tulips. We had gone to get inspired for our Spring 2007 collection called "Kiss me Quick in Amsterdam" and to this day we are still inspired by how grungy yet desirable this colorful city is. We long to go back!! (Cue the Music!) We went to the most fabulous flea market called Waterlooplein . Its an outdoor Flea Market and we found 2 pairs of kick ass motorcycle boots that we still wear to this day! We wish we bought that leather jumpsuit in the picture hanging on the tree below because our current "wish" piece is a vintage black leather jumpsuit! We spent four hours in the Eyeglass Museum called the Brilmuseum . We both got these strange amazing black frames from the 50's! Most of all, we fell in love with Herman Brood's paintings. He was known as the Elvis of Amsterdam and for his music and his rock star bad boy antics. While we were there, we listened to his music which jumpstarted his career as an artist, called Cuby and The Blizzards. They are one of our favourite bands and you can only get their earlier Cd's off eBay.
