Yesterday was the big opening night of Amsterdam Fashion Week and I was invited to visit the launch of Colgate's new MaxWhite One luminous toothpaste as well the SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers show. This show was the official kick-off of the Amsterdam Fashion Week catwalk programme and it also was my very first time at Amsterdam Fashion Week. As you may understand I was very excited!
The twin sisters Spijkers showed a collection inspired by the young Brigitte Bardot. It featured a lot of lightweight striped and checked items, as well as playfully printed tops and dresses, suits, shorts and denim skirts and jeans. There were quite a few off the shoulders tops with puffy sleeves I didn't really like, but I thought most of the collection was actually really nice and perfect for the summer. I especially loved the see-through organza skirts towards the end of the show and some beautiful, boyish suits. You can find my favourite looks after the break.
Thank you Colgate, Cream PR and the Spijkers en Spijkers team for the invitation and the very nice event and show! Photos are by me and via Team Peter Stigter.
