When it comes to fashion, I like looking for original and timeless things. This isn’t always easy, as designers of original things sometimes get a bit carried away. And when it comes to timeless things, these quickly become old hat. I’ve been walking past the shops of Hester van Eeghen for years now, and their window displays are always colourful, original and... timeless.
Hester van Eeghen has made leather her speciality
She has three shops in Amsterdam’s Nine Streets, an area which is well-known for its small shops. The first one only sells shoes, while the second sells mainly bags and wallets. The third one opened this summer and sells men’s items.
Colour is her thing
Hester van Eeghen specialises in colour, which she uses everywhere and with daring combinations. As the seasons change, I love looking at her new creations, shapes and models, with the consistently colourful theme. The ranges she produces are sometimes daring but never garish. If you think wearing the shoes she designs may be a bit too much, you can always choose one of her beautifully crafted bags. Back-to-school is a great time to buy a new satchel!
I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, but I prefer to be followed on a bicycle than on Twitter. I love Amsterdam for...its little streets, riches, treasures and all of the spots where you can get a really good beer. Follow the guide! My little extra: discovering nature
