Sissy Boy. Sweet memories. I remember the opening of the first store in Amsterdam, back in 1982. I just moved from the countryside to The Big City and became an instant fan of their fashion collection – and their pretty staff. We all were.
Now – almost 35 years later – the Spring-2016-press-breakfast where they turned the White Space into a cosy home, proofs that Sissy Boy is still going strong. What started as a fashion boutique turned into a lifestyle concept store.
Sissy Boy 2016 interior trends
I think trends are fine as inspiration, though it is important to handpick only what complements your wardrobe, house and/or lifestyle. If you hate red copper, forget about it.
But if you love it, you can have a field day! The red copper trend is here to stay. Due to its warm colour both a perfect match for a greenish seventies style (persian rugs and hanging plants) interior or a more minimalistic one.
I love the little red copper stools, watering cans and plant pots. I’ve been here before – yes, I did macrame my (purple!) hanging baskets back then – but still embrace (part of) the seventies interior style. I’ll stick to one or two plants this time around.
The new women collection
The Spring 2016 collection is inspired by ancient Japanese martial arts. Like Aikido and Judo. Both dynamic forms of intuitive power and respect for movement focussed on balance, meditation and self-control.
This reflects the luxurious homewear collection in cupro and merino wool. Think kimono’s and karate pants, volumized wrappings with bow ties. Geometric ikat prints inspired by Japanese origami.
With the Spring ’16 collection we again strive for a higher level. We produce everything ourselves. We love the product, we love people. We live our lifestyle concept. – Maja Krsic | Creative Director
