Imaan Hammam

The is not one week where this is not happening. I have a new supermodel crush and this time it’s 19 year old Dutch fashion model of Moroccan and Egyptian descent Imaan Hammam.

Imaan was discovered in Amsterdam’s Central Station by an agent from CODE Management in 2010 and just a couple of years later she she was given the honor to open a Givenchy show as an exclusive. Anna Wintour has been a true support of Hammam and mentioned the model in her editor’s letter the first time she appeared in the magazine. She also appeared on the September cover of American Vogue, a cover which very few models, much less new faces, are able to secure. Hammam has walked for all the big names, like Prada, Jean Paul Gaultier, Balenciaga, Versace, Fendi, Proenza Schouler and Dior.

Imaan is not only a star, but she is one to be watched out for:

Morocco with Daily Paper

Amsterdam based label Daily Paper released the images of the first part of their Spring/Summer 2015. For the look book the label travelled to Morocco, the country that served as the main inspiration for their collection. And you can clearly see Morocco’s color palettes and fabrics in their fashion. And this shit turned out to be dope af. I must admit that I have a secret fetish when it comes to look books. Like a lot of them pictures are so good that I want to pin them on my wall, just so I can look at it every day. For more than just one season.

Morocco Morocco After travelling to Morocco for a photo-shoot in early 2014, the design team of Daily Paper got inspired by the culture, colors and fabrics of the Moroccan people. Upon their return they got back to the drawing board and created 2 collections for the SS15 collection. The first chapter is mainly focussed on the color palettes used by the Moroccan people and their use of fabrics, while the 2nd chapter shows influences from ancient and modern ‘Berber tribe’ elements. The collection is an ode to North African culture and is filled with well tailored staples such as: All over print T-shirts, nylon vests, classic bomber jackets, cotton rain coats, and all over embroidered jogger pants.
