Event: Press Days SS14 Part 1

 Yesterday, I attended the Press Days for Spring/Summer of 2014. It was the first event I ever attended and I must say it has been the most stressful, chaotic but also the most amazing and wonderful day of my life up to now. I feel like I could do this every day. Because of the awesomeness and because of all the things I have to tell and show you, I am going to split this post into two posts, part two is coming soon.

This part acts about PR-agency Marnix&Ally, who also celebrated their first birthday yesterday. They are specialised in belgian/ecological brands and labels, which I find a true advantage as I got to know lots of new brands. To celebrate their birthday, we got spoiled with homemade cookies, pies, cakes and lots of other sweets and we also got to taste the vegetable juices of Jus Jus, the first belgian cold-pressed juice and detox company. They have various flavours to offer, it is impossible to choose only one! Ellen and An-Katrien from Marnix&Ally welcomed us with open arms, they were incredibly sweet and friendly.

Next up: the brands. I discovered so many cool brands I can't believe. Marnix&Ally have fashion, accessoires and interior, really everything one could possibly need.
Starting off with LN|KNITS. It's a currently booming label by the Belgian designer Ellen Kegels. She makes beautiful handmade knitwear, and her brand actually consists of two parts: LN|Beanies, that offers mostly accessoires like scarves and beanies, and LN|Andes, that also offers warm comfortable cardigans. 
LN|Beanies is made with the help of Ellen's mother and her 'grannies', who stand in for the knitting. Both collections feauture beautiful alpaca whool, which gives a very soft feel and a luxurious look to the items.


The next things I wanted to tell you about, are accessoires. Marnix&Ally had a lot of accessoires brands to offer: fabulous shoes ( Marco Tozzi, Kennel & Schmenger), great handbags ( AWARD/T, O My Bag, Mieke Dierckx...), the funniest and happiest socks on earth (Sock You) and the coolest 2D and 3D printed jewellery by DAMN. Some pics I took:

Shiny slip-ons by Kennel & Schmenger. They really had the coolest sneakers ever, for both women and men.

Overview of all the Marco Tozzi shoes. 

Beautiful and -most important- ecological leather bags by the Dutch brand O My Bag

Hat + the awesomest bags ever (the black one is on my wishlist) by AWARD/T

Love the couleur cachée concept by Mieke Dierckx. (Picture from the site as I forgot to take one yesterday, very professional
The coolest socks around: Sock You! For an instant shot of happiness! I was so glad I discovered a pair of them in my goodiebag!
One of my favourite brands: DAMN. They make 2D and 3D printed jewellery. How cool is that?
This 3D printed pin: yes please!
To end with, I want to show you these amazing pillows and seats by the (again) Belgian brand P-LO. They make interior objects, mostly pillows, and you can customize your pillow as you wish. Another fabric, size or color? No problem! I also discovered SIXINCH, an interior label that works with foamcoating. They make the most awesome seats ever, I could really see myself sitting on one in my loft/house later.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Marnix&Ally for inviting me, I had a real blast and I absolutely loved it! 
Thank you for reading!


  1. LN beanies zijn zo leuk! Mijn mama kocht er laatst eentje, alleen zijn zo'n mutsen echt een ramp met mijn haar :( Die sokkencollectie is trouwens ook best geweldig!

  2. Die tassen zijn mijn favoriet! Leuke post!
