Meet Ruby Tuesday & Miss Ruby Tuesday

Spreading its love since 2011, Ruby Tuesday is a fresh concept label based in the Netherlands. While it still has a young presence on the fashion scene, Ruby Tuesday brings forth an authentic, yet accessible look, which can be best transcribed as effortlessly chic and transparently timeless.
After the big succes of the women's collection with it's iconic basics Ruby Tuesday decided to launch a small collection of fine pieces for the little ones.

The people behind the brand are amazingly cool, kind and slow moment lovers, they know the drill since they got a full house of girls themselves!

Ruby Tuesday will be in our store from Oct '12, Miss Ruby Tuesday from Jan '15!

Gorgeous Grey

Grey is the most versatile and complex of colours, you can create any mood with the right shade of grey, from the palest silver to the darkest midnight.
We love the softest grey from cool to warm to give a light sophisticated feeling to a room or exterior. Or dark and moody, envelope yourself and create drama.
Our grey's are different, they are created with natural pigments which reflect light in a different way making beautiful natural warm greys.

This year we will open our slow store Brands Unxpctd. Part of our philosophy is slow Art. To keep ourselves calm and pay attention to our sixth sense we have to slow down sometimes... 

Work of Leoniek Bontje
Et Dieu… crea la femme (film uit 1956 van Roger Vadim met Brigitte Bardot)
Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. (Chief Seattle)
In most works of Leoniek Bontje (Purmerend, 24-12-1969), you see women. Women who look tempting and self assured, like Brigitte Bardot in Et Dieu… Crea la Femme. These women look strong, beautiful and lovely. They are made of threads, so they are also vulnarable and changable.
The threads are like the lines of a drawing. But they are also symbol of ‘the web of life’. They represent the way of life, the relationships and connection between people. “For me, the threads represent the desire to be together, the connection between people. The threads can capture you, but they can also guide you like they guided Ariadne out of the Labyrinth, says Leoniek Bontje. “The threads tight you down and by cutting they give loose ends, so they also represent life lines for me”.
Leoniek Bontje studied Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and graduated in 2008. She showed her work in different places and galeries. 

We are thrilled to welcome Leoniek Bontje in our slow store and represent her work beautiful Art works
