When we ask Isabelle about her favorite Halsduk item, her answer is, “my favorite Halsduk item (kimono jacket, pants or scarf), I must say I wear my kimono jacket the most. So I guess that will be my favorite item then. But of course the beautiful silk scarves by Slava Fokk and Joris van Spaendonck have a very special meaning for me.”

Bettina Kampert

Bettina Kampert, staff member D-OPS Air Traffic Control the Netherlands (LVNL).
As a staff member, Bettina is a jack-of-all-trades. Besides all common support tasks in the field of policy, procedures, communication, stakeholder management, finances, etc., she is above all a safety net and an oracle. Colleagues can come to her with many questions, but also for pitching new ideas, sharing concerns or just chatting, it all comes along. Furthermore, the cooperation with the director is so good that many reflection and evaluation conversations take place; what’s going well, what could be better…. I enjoy these conversations, I’m still learning every day!

What is her favorite Halsduk item?

The Halsduk kimono jacket. What a picture and what a beautiful quality. I feel great when I wear it. Sometimes on leather pants with heels underneath but it also goes with ease with jeans and cool sneakers making the kimono super versatile as well.

The answer to the question what is your favorite Halsduk item is, “It’s hard to choose from the beautiful pieces you create. For example, the silk kimono you made for me gives the feeling of sporty, chic allure.
And the shawl in the picture is an all-rounder, a magic wand. With a suit, casually folded or nicely tied. It is always successful. Very nice to be able to add allure in an instant.”
