magic of online retail



I’ve been contemplating for a while on one very old but obsessive idea…something I wanted to create, but never found a physical space for. Now the world of internet comes in handy, it’s giving out virtual spaces almost free of charge.

So I’m putting together an online boutique – simple, basic, but very much loved and tended with care. I’m searching for deco objects, music, zines, apparel, silkscreen prints and handmade accessories. I’m very inspired by the north, infested with private online shops where, mostly women, sell all the lovely stuff they create. Mommies on a parental leave, yeah, but all with the best artistic education ever…just check varpunen.bigcartel.com for instance.
Annie Larson is my idol too, and the humble Stand Up Comedy boutique from Portland, Oregon.
I plan to function in themed editions and a small selection, right enough for the moment in time. And the best way to know when and where it will happen, watch this space!

COS spring/summer 2012 lookbook

my page got some blogger bug... i really hope it's over now, because i have just so much to tell!


Some simple and predictable freshness from COS. I like the blues and the greens, but I hope to see some rust or ochre appear here and there. It’s the 90’s sort of cleanness, without any fuss or unnecessary details…but there are no exceptional pieces either – it’s the combination that grabs the attention: the printed suit with shorts or a flood-length printed trousers and an extreme shoulder navy top. I’m not sure if this sterile and grown-up fashion is tailor-made for my taste, but COS lookbooks are always just a deviation from reality of a large surface high-street boutique filled with hits and misses of the current fashion consumerism. I’m rather sure to buy my entire wardrobe at COS….again!

HOW TO BE A PERFECT LIVE BAND tutorial


(administered by Gable at Beurscafe last night)

  • start slow, like any other band kneeling on the floor and fiddling with extraterrestrially complicated equipment.



  • entertain your public by blowing into two flutes simultaneously.


  • make sure your guitar is missing some strings and is tied with a cord.



  • swap, sample, interact. Put 'Bonsoir Bruxelles' on a loop.


  • buy your instruments in a toy store, choose brightly coloured ones.

  • do the foot action.




  • put a cat sticker  on your guitar
  • grab a bunch of unnecessary stuff and use it as a drum effect.



(always employ the key of your hotel room as a music instrument)


  • tear a wooden crate in pieces, smash it on your head for a more convincing stage action (only while pretending you are a drunk fox in London)




  • do more floor action, amongst the debris.

  • NEVER forget Elvis.



  • give up trying to be cool! just go see Gable do their thing.
Today I felt like I needed to breath the cold digital winter air…I felt that my current position in blogosphere was suffocating me…I took a ride out into the infinite snowy fields and filled my lungs anew…and I felt that I needed to share.

This is a more personal and honest part of what I do. I run an image blog ± (Various Sources) on Tumblr, write a good old fashion blog .origami mon ami since 2006, and since recently publish a fashion fanzine Various Sources. All Brussels-based, I’m no globe-trotter, although I do explore the Northern part of the Old Continent with immense pleasure.

I want to share what I think, see, like, wear, buy, want, make, do, visit, love, know, discover, find, lose, keep, get, give, take, share
