Time flies when you’re having fun. And this trip flew by way too quick! Here’s a small photo recap of my London trip. I was invited along with a small group of dutchies to visit London for the launch of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II. I love how they focussed on the make-up of the shoe instead of it’s appearance. The shoe looks almost exactly the same but the build is way different. This renewed version of the Classic All star features a premium canvas upper and a lunarlon insole. Also it’s a bit padded. So the overall fit is so so so much better than the original All star!

We arrived at the Hoxton Holborn hotel early in the afternoon after a slight delay to drop off our stuff and go for lunch with the whole group. After lunch we had a few hours to kill before the event. So we went for a turbo tour through SOHO visiting Palace, Supreme, Maharishi, Footpatrol, Nike town and last but not least Crosstown donuts (yes, I’m obsessed with donuts! beyond obsessed..). Afterwards we went to Five Guys for a quick cheese burger, cajun fries and a big ass milkshake (I know right: #fitgirl #eatclean) before we headed to the launch party.

When we arrived at Victoria house for the launch party we got a fresh pair of chuck II’s and changed into white overalls and safety glasses to end up in a crazy paint fight. So this brand new pair of chuck II’s is now covered in black speckles from the paint! which actually looks kinda cool! After the launch I met up with a few London based friends for a few more drinks and some relaxing at the hotel. Ended this day with a party for one at my superchill hotel room featuring a towel, some leftover donuts and netflix on my laptop, haha!

Woke up early on tuesday. Packed my stuff, had Eggs benny for breakfast and then it was already time to go back to Amsterdam. My last time in London was 5 years ago and I almost forgot how dope London is. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to shoot outfits and to meet up with some more good London peeps this time. But I will definitely be back soon!

Thanks Converse for the great trip. And big up to the squad (the 3 guys you see in the pictures) for the good company and dealing with my donut obsession!
