Micky Hoogendijk

“I’m sitting with Micky at the kitchen table in her cozy home, which also houses her beautiful studio. Our first acquaintance. Initiated by a mutual relationship. Something beautiful was born. It immediately felt right. I was enchanted by the surroundings, her endearment, softness and strength. Our worlds connected. The result, a special friendship and collaboration.”

Sisley Paris

May 2021 I received an email from the French beauty brand Sisley Paris. The head office in the Netherlands asked if I would be open to a brainstorming session for a possible collaboration. Sisley is a fan of Halsduk. A few weeks later, I sat down with the PR Officer of Sisley Netherlands. Halsduk and Sisley both stand for quality, exclusivity, sustainability and femininity.
Our brainstorming session resulted in a collaboration with a third party. Namely Van Loon Galleries in Vught. Together we organized the successful event where art, beauty and fashion came together in October 2021. A group of 80 women enjoyed a unique experience where all the senses were stimulated.

Masterly The Hague

October 21 to 24, 2022, a special Biennale took place in The Hague. A Biennale of contemporary designers and Old Masters. Masterly The Hague. 
“Ode to the Dutch Landscape” was the theme of 2022. 
Especially for Masterly The Hague, I developed a limited collection inspired by the work of the Dutch Old Master Aert Schouman (1710-1792). 
The Masterpiece kimono tells the story of 1 of Schouman’s artworks. The prints of the silk kimonos Grås, Magnolia and the men’s kimonos are also inspired by Schouman’s work.
