On Catalogs

Apparently, catalogues are still a thing: ‘Now, some 20% of the website’s first-time customers are placing their order after having received a catalog, says Craig Elbert, vice president of marketing for Bonobos. They spend 1.5 times as much as new shoppers who didn’t receive a catalog first.’

Moving To Amsterdam

My plans were once again sidetracked and unfortunately I haven’t shown my blog the love it really deserves. Our moving to Amsterdam (we’re leaving Melbourne next Saturday, yay!) took up more time than expected and work also needed to be taken care of. Once we settle in Amsterdam, mid-May, things should be back on track.

In the mean time, here’s some of the blogging I’ve been working on, among others:

How fashion editors wear their sunglasses

Swapping powerlessness for social change

Mood of the week: inspiring colours

Dries Van Noten: Inspirations

Fashion designers behind camera

Style Eyecon: Alain Delon
