~ Interview: Jewelry designer Lenneke Kooijman ~

It’s a gloomy Tuesday covered by a grey Dutch sky. I am waiting in a warmed by candles and lights Italian café a young and very talented designer Lenneke Kooijman who stands behind a fast growing jewellery brand Lennebelle. She’s rushing in all smiles, petite and pretty as any of her jewellery creations. In a few minutes we are all settled down with cups of good Italian cappuccino to talk about her brand, easy elegance, children and plans for the future.
“Delicate, very feminine, and definitely of a high quality – these are the words which would describe Lennebelle in the best way” – proudly says Kooijman.

Q: So how was Lennebelle born?
L: By pure coincidence. I haven’t had a master plan or an academic background in jewellery crafting. I did study in the Dutch Art Academy but not at the department of jewellery design. However I was always deeply drawn to the beauty of a jewellery piece, to the story behind each and every of them.
One day the stars aligned and I started my brand. The signature glass tube packaging was inspired by a glass tube I found on an antique market and the colourful cotton tassels reflect my never ending love affair with colours. 
Q: How would you describe the character of the Lennebelle brand? Why is it different from any other jewellery brand?
L: Lennebelle is founded to celebrate delicacy and high quality. Any jewellery piece I hand-craft is to be worn for ages. Lennebelle jewellery is not an eye-catcher it’s an elegant touch to finish a look, to empower a woman to feel confident and beautiful.
Q: Talking about women, do you have a perfect Lennebelle lady in your mind when you create a collection or is it an abstract figure without age, face and personality?
L: Of course my jewellery could be worn by anybody. However I do have a character in mind when I work on a collection. I believe that my jewellery line speaks to elegant, young in their souls women who appreciate high quality and noble materials. Lennebelle mademoiselle doesn’t seek an attention with screaming “look at me” jewellery. She knows she’ll stand out by her impeccable taste and exquisite jewellery she wears. 
Q: She sounds like a very beautiful self-confident girl. Are you the same?
L: (smiles mischievously).
Q: Okey, well an impeccable taste it’s something one is born with or one works hard at. What’s your style receipt for impeccable?
L: I think comfortable, simple and clean look is the way to go. Think about those fantastic clean lines of Cos for example. Less is definitely more. I also tend to do quite a lot of feminine with a tomboy touch. My all times favorite is a tailored pencil skirt with my boyfriend’s shirt and a pair of cool booties. When it comes to accessories I’m a sucker for chunky scarves and dainty timeless jewellery – all by Lennebelle for course.  When it comes to make-up my main rule is to stay natural. I love effortless long hair, a touch of mascara and Bobby Brown pot rouge for lips & cheeks.
Q: Crafting a jewellery piece is a very creative process I can imagine. What does inspire you?
L: Pfff, it’s a difficult question; frankly quite a lot of things influence my creative process. I have an ongoing affair with colours. Those beautiful vivid or vice a versa tender hues give me an enormous inspiration. I’m also a devoted traveller. So I bring something back from my trips which definitely have a huge influence on me while I’m working on a new collection. Like this my vacation in Bali last summer has inspired a new collection. I’m also inspired by people a lot. A colleague of mine is such a stunning and exotic person that now I’m thinking to have a whole collection created inspired by her beauty.
Q: Would you mind to share your plans for future?
L: At the moment I’m very busy with a new line Lennebelle Petites for mothers and daughters inspired by a deep maternal love, my love to my baby daughter. The line has just been launched and it’s a huge success already (Lennebelle Petites will be available soon at Très Jewellery) I am also busy with a new collection for Lennebelle which will be quite exotic, maybe a bit Africa-inspired, dominated by power colours like emerald green, electric blue and scarlet red.
Q: How do you work when you are creating a new collection? Is it a hectic process or an organized step by step plan?
L: Creating process is quite a hectic thing in its core. I always start with a mood board. I pin my ideas, photos, colours, and pieces of fabrics – anything which gives me a kick of inspiration. Then I think about the forms and materials. When I have a clear idea about how the next jewellery collection will look like I choose a model and a location for a shoot. However I must admit that sometimes the process goes in a reverse way. I can see a model and be inspired by her beauty to create a new jewellery piece.
Q: Tell us about the materials you work with?
L: I work only with beautiful noble and ethical materials. Every jewellery piece is hand-crafted and I strictly assure that I offer my clients only a high quality product. I use sterling silver and 18K gold-plating. For the decoration I use gem-stones like rose-quartz and amethyst, pearls and silver or gold-plated charms. I always make sure that the materials which are used are ethical and fulfill all the necessary requirements. I create timeless, high quality pieces to be worn and adored throughout the years.
Q: What makes you happy?
L: My family, travelling, colours, freedom, a lot of things in other words (smiles).

~ My Looks: Summer Again ~

fashion bridge, fashion bridge blog, fashion blogs, dolce gabbana bags, dolce gabbana sicily bag in red, Diane von Furstenberg , Tres Jewellery, bracelets Tres Jewellery, street style Netherlands

A heat wave crushed onto the city waiving its summer good-byes and teasing us to pull out pretty S/S clothes again. It's a last chance to dip into the head-spinning summer lightness. I feel a spasm of panic  - how can I choose among all the eye-candy items only a few to put on the ever list time before packing them into a long journey to the next season? At the same time a rush of excitement goes through my body when eyeing crisp linen shirts, bright silks and embellished sandals. 
Summer, you maybe gone but your warmth and sweetness stays with me!

Тепловая волна ударила по городу, восторженно отдавая последние прости лету. Мы как будто запрыгнули в последний вагон поезда, направляющегося в невесомость и легкую дымку лета. Спазм паники на секунду что-то крепко сжал внутри - как же я могу выбрать из всех этих прекрасных вещей всего несколько, перед тем как отправить их в долгое путешествие до следующего сезона на верхние полки шкафа? В тоже время приятная волна восторженного детского удовольствия прокатилась по телу при виде открахмаленных белых льняных рубашек, яркого шелка тонких шарфов и играющих в лучах солнца кристаллов украшений. 
Лето, ты может быть и ушло, но твое тепло и пьянящий аромат все еще живет во мне!

~ Travelling: Fallin' in Love with Paris ~

Postcards from Paris
I think Ive never before experienced the city like this almost empty apart for standard touristic spots. We rented bikes and crossed the whole city stopping to shoot some photos, to drink a cup of strong French coffee and to glimpse into a day of Parisian life. If you ask me the Woody Allen question: “When is Paris the most beautiful by day or by night” I’d say and it may sound extremely cheesy yet true “When you’re happy”.

Открытки из Парижа

Не ошибусь, если скажу, что я еще никогда не видела Париж таким – практически опустевшим, с нагретыми светлыми улицами и кучкующимися людьми с фотоаппаратами в руках лишь в самых фундаментально туристических местах. Мы взяли впрокат велосипеды и исхолесили весь город, останавливаясь сделать несколько снимков летнего города, выпить крепкого кофе и заглянуть в растаювшую в августовском воздухе жизнь парижан. Если мне кто-нибудь задаст Вуди Алленовский вопрос: «В какое время Париж наиболее прекрасен?», я отвечу может быть и не оригинально, может быть и бонально, но зато правдой: «Когда ты счастлив».

~ My Looks: Once Upon A Time In Paris ~

Fashion Bridge, Fashion bridge blog, street style, Paris street style, paris street style summer, Carrie Bradshow in Paris, Tres Jewellery, Vanessa Mooney Tres Jewellery, Hermes Kelly Bag


We are who we are. But without a doubt the environment we live in, go for a holiday, travel for work has the major impact on us. When I’m home, in Holland I tend to dress up according to my mood. I think it’s the freedom which is in the Dutch air. You can put on whatever your left foot wishes and nobody would care a damn. This is what I like about Holland. But when I’m travelling I unconsciously tend to adjust my outfits to the city I’m going and to my schedule for the day.
This time in summery almost empty Paris I wanted to play into Carrie Bradshaw (I know I talk a lot about her lately, but she’s such a great inspiration for me. And maybe it because I re-watch in 150 time the series) – full midi skirts, chunky yet feminine accessories. Vintage Hermes Kelly bag added something “French” to my outfit. And the wedgy sandals made sure I can walk and bike the whole day without complaining on the pain in my feet.

Мы те, кто мы есть. Однако было бы глупо отрицать, что окружающий мир, города и страны, где мы живем, куда ездим в отдыхать или работать, никак не влияют на нас и на наш стиль. Когда я дома, в Голландии, например, я одеваюсь согласно моему настроению, по принципу: что хочу, то ношу. Это, наверное, свобода, которой пропитан голландский воздух. За это я и люблю мою страну, всем совершенно все равно, как ты выглядишь и что ты делаешь. Вот она - свобода выбора. Но вот когда я собираюсь в поездку, я бессознательно «подгоняю» мой образ под город, куда я направляюсь, и под распорядок грядущего дня.

В этот раз в летнем и практически пустом Париже мне захотелось поиграть в Кэрри Брэдшоу (в последнее время я часто ее упоминаю, может быть, потому что этот персонаж до сих пор является неисчерпаемым источников вдохновения, а может быть просто потому, что я в 150 раз пересматриваю «Секс в Большом Городе»). Женственный силуэт, пышная юбка миди в крупный цветок, избыток украшений – Кэри бы точно с одобрением улыбнулась мне. А винтажная сумка Hermes Kelly добавила немного «французского» шарма моему образу.

~New In: Fabulous Necklace ~

fashion bridge, fashion bridge blog, street style, Samantha Wills necklaces, Samantha Wills Nederland, Tres Jewellery, Samantha Wills Tres Jewellery

This summer was/is a hell of a hectic one. I'm working really a lot and in a spare free moments I want to grab every single ray of sun, every moment to wear a pretty dress, every warm evening outside and a great weekend trip with the loved one.
Work requires me to be constantly on the go. So I'm trying to opt for as comfortable as possible outfits within professional of course. Mostly I opt for crisp white shirts/T-shirts or oversized cotton sweaters in candy colours. As always accessories is a sphere where I let my imagination go. This stunning Samantha Wills necklace has without a doubt become my summer absolute favorite. I love the eastern design, beautiful hardwear and a combination of turquoise stones with antique gold.
Fabulous it is!
PS. talking about weekend get-aways: I'm heading to Paris this week. Come with me on this trip via my Instagram  (@alexandravsamarina)and get inspired by my previous trips to the majestic city HERE, HERE , HERE and HERE.
