One of the awesome benefits of being a blogger are the invitations to events and showrooms. A few weeks ago, I got such an invite from Pure Diffusion PR to come check out their (enormous) showroom and to get to know some of the brands they represent. It’s always great to meet some of the faces behind the many press mails we get and to actually be able to see and feel the collections.

They had a few brands I didn’t know but that’s probably the best thing about these meetings: discovering new brands! And I’m so glad that I did, because they had way too many brands I fell head over heels in love with!

FAVORITES

Let me introduce you to some of my favorites:

1. KIM AND ZOZI

Colorful, festival-proof and awesome. That’s all I need to say to describe Kim and Zozi.

2. HIPANEMA

Maybe a bit early for actual summer gear but I had to show some items from this brand. It’s a.b.s.o.l.u.t.l.y. great! Lot’s of bright colors, great fabrics, lovely snits and amazing beachwear is the focus at Hipanema! Let the craving for summer begin. (Oh boy, winter hasn’t even officially started yet.)

Gorgeous bracelets… I called them the ‘lazy bracelet’ (NL: luiewijven armband) because you don’t need to waist time by closing 10 different bracelets. Just put on one of these and you’re ready to go. Brilliant…

Also love the design of the rings below.

This printed bikini is going on my must-have list for next season. Isn’t it perfect?!

3. PEACOCK BLUE

Still in need of a beautiful sweater? Definitely check out the Peacock Blue collection. This Italian brand has beautiful items in soft colors with fun details and amazing quality. They are truly as soft as those onesies we all seem to fall in love with. (Don’t you just hate those sweaters that make you feel like you’ve rolled into a haystack for over an hour?) Pricey but ooh so beautiful.

Pure Diffusion_visit_PR_Showroom_Antwerp_lovelifelovefashion A This right cashmere grey sweater is perfect to add to my Christmas wish list at the last minute. I absolutely adore it.

4. HAPPINESS

Happiness is a $10 Tee. This brand has many classic white shirts with funny prints and text. They often mock high fashion brands but in a funny, still respectful way. Refreshing.

Pure Diffusion_visit_PR_Showroom_Antwerp_lovelifelovefashion CThe items are of course not just $10. More around 40 euro. But you do get a lot of awesomeness in return for this (still affordable) price.

5. SPEKTRE

Many beautiful sunglasses of SPEKTRE. Clearly the colored glasses will remain popular next summer. I could even pick out a model as well as one of the Kim and Zozi bracelets. (OMG! *happy dance* Thanks Pure Diffusion!).

6. SPACE STYLE CONCEPT

Think classy, feminine, sensual and Italy. These two dresses of Space Style Concept really stood out. The red beauty was part of the Holidays collection. Perfect for Christmas, right?!

Pure Diffusion_visit_PR_Showroom_Antwerp_lovelifelovefashion EOf course they had many more great brands and pieces. But the ones above definitely stood out and are totally me. Again a big thank you for the invite and the lovely tour in the beautiful showroom(s). It was a perfect day to get some final Christmas wish list inspiration!

Is there a brand that is new to you too? Or did you already knew all of them? Love to hear.
