An editor’s note

For a while I have been posting various articles on this website. The articles I posted varied from new fashion items, party pictures, cool gadgets to an incidental recipe. I would like to thank all the readers up till now for following my “blog”. But it is time to move ahead.

We will be merging this website and content to a new platform. Take things to a new level and focus more on the international aspect of the articles.

So, now you talk about “we”? That’s correct, together with Daniel, my coworker, we are building a new online magazine about lifestyle, fashion and all the things related to that.

I have been inspired by many bloggers and magazines but I think this website could become more than just a collection of short blogposts. From now on, we will slowly move to the new magazine. One of the next steps is working together with international writers.

You are very welcome to read and enjoy the new website, and please do participate in this project. We are looking for writers, editors and other people that can help us grow this magazine to become the new cool thing on the Internet. And beyond.

For more information, feel free to contact me via derek@applestreet.nl or the contact form. I hope to see you all in the near future, online and offline…

Filling Pieces – The gap between Haute Couture and Street Couture

A few months ago a friend of mine bought a pair of Filling Pieces shoes at Ontfront in Amsterdam. I was familiar with these beautiful sneakers from blogs and websites but I’ve never seen them in real life. Now I’m jealous every time I walk next to my friend while he is wearing his bordeaux Filling Pieces Boat boots.

The brand has been established in 2009 in Amsterdam by owner and designer Guillaume Philibert. The concept behind the brand is that the shoes are the gap between Haute Couture and Street Couture. They are sporty but you can also wear them when you’re going for ‘smart casual’ with a chino and a blazer.  Soon I’m going to add a pair of these beauties to my shoe collection. You should do the same!

Workshops for your company

The “Style for men” or “Stijl voor Mannen” workshops are already a great success. Giving advice for men in small groups is a good way of helping them with their styling. But, what is even better, if you have an event at your company, I can help you to motivate your employees, train them and make them more aware of style on the workfloor.

Not only in the office, but in your restaurant, bar or shop the theme of “style” is important. Training your employees and managers is a good way of lifting your business to a new level. I’m glad to help you out with this. Simply contact me!
