In 2021, the king of denim, JACK & JONES, got a little sister. The international brand JJXX wants to redefine what a girls’ fashion brand can look like by focussing on denim, essentials and high fashion must-haves. They encourage young girls to be themselves by making them feel free, independent, powerful, capable and cool in everyday life. JJXX celebrates all denim lovers who value quality essentials with a good fit.

This fall, the JJXX collection contains lots of earth tones like army green, light beige/ecru and a little bit of camel, mixed with neon yellow, ocean blue or dark purple. Pimp your outfit with a trendy checked scarf or one of the bright coloured beanies.

Blazers in different shades of ecru or beige can this season be combined with both pants, long and short skirts. More of a dress type? Go for a long fitting dress in ecru, dark green or black.

Stay on trend with JJXX’s wide variety of parachute pants or pants and blazers in faux leather. Make sure you added some bright knits or bolero knits to your wardrobe for when it gets really cold.


JACK & JONES AW23 collection focusses on the use of responsibly sourced wool within all categories of their clothing. A staple product for every man’s wardrobe this season is the overshirt. The silhouette is a perfect layering piece for autumn making it a trans-seasonal style that is a key part of the Premium Collection. The look is classic yet contemporary and works well paired with smart black pants or iconic five pocket jeans.

The ultimate fitting for pants right now is the parachute. It’s JACK & JONES’ roomiest fitting to date, made in a crispy cotton quality that drapes really nicely. They’ve added a garment dye for a rich, washed-out look and string pullers at leg opening, so it can be worn open or cuffed.

When choosing a JACK & JONES jacket, the perennial favourite is still one of the most important styles for AW23. With the oversized cropped fitting and an over dye achieves the trendy look spot on. Although the puffer style has been around for quite some time, it’s a relatively blank canvas and therefore never feels outdated.

Now, more so than ever, women are dressing for the appreciation of other women, not for the male gaze. The FW23 catwalks focused heavily on power, femininity and “Bigger is better”. Dutch fashion brand JOSH V focusses this season on three complementing trends.

“Free Spirit Attitude” embodies the modernized 70s style, with warm brown colours, flared legs and layered textures. “The Forever Classic” refers to JOSH V’s playful suiting and reinvention of timeless shapes. And lastly “Retro-to-wear” embraces an eclectic mix of eras that, creating surprising colour combinations in each collection drop.

Dopamine dressing is the macro trend of the moment, which is largely lead by bold and vibrant colours. Embracing this, designer Josh Veldhuizen and her team have combined timeless colours with pops of trend colours like mint and sherbet to create a surprising and exciting blend.

The diverse FW23-collection features a wide range of fabric, transparent organza and boucle to emphasize the Josh V signature style. With many beautiful items for the cooler months, this collection will inspire everyone to step outside, get into the mood of the moment and feel powerful in their own skin.

This season, her. and her friends are heading into the wilderness. Surrounded by nothing but green, we calm down but also find new energy. This inspired her. for its FW23-collection where earth shades and organic textures play the lead.

Evergreens like a female suit, the mid-length skirt and shirt dress are supplemented by leather pants and long cardigans. The colour green, from soft sage to moss green and intense grass green, takes us along a refreshing walk in the woods. Together with earth shades and warm grey, this colour palette embodies the power of the essential. Her. added some refined animal prints and a warm orchid pink to make sure you can express your own identity in the middle of this often dark season.

Wear fashionable knitwear inspired by textures we find in nature to a lunch with friends or a relaxing weekend. The flowing, silky blouses and skirts, on the other hand, are reminiscent of the clear water of a running stream and invite you to prepare for a festive evening. All items can be worn both casual and dressed up, depending on how you combine them. Mix a silky soft skirt with an oversized sweater for the look of this season.

Bôtan Distillery started in 2018. What followed was an intense period of development, resulting in the world's first Botanical Spirits of home-grown herbs and flowers without artificial ingredients and without preservatives. Meanwhile, Bôtan has a wide range of gastronomic non-alcoholic drinks for every occasion.

With their Botanical Spirits you are able to create mindful and clean cocktails with a deep aroma palette. For those who want their drinks ready to serve, Bôtan created Botanical Cocktails too. Some of them are inspired by classics like Pisco Sour and Mezcal Paloma, but they also developed unique creations to put their signature on the map.

Newest member of the Bôtan family is Ginzu, an alternative for alcoholic spritzer like an Aperol Spritz. No chemical ingredients, no alcohol and a more refreshing taste. The ideal drink for the first sunshine!

For Bôtan Distillery's Botanical Wynes, fermented grapes are replaced by distilled herbs, which are then assembled with a selection of fruit varieties. They have nothing to do with the industrial process of de-alcoholisation and are not made to resemble traditional wine or imitate a specific grape, but to experience layered flavours and to use as a food pairing.

JARR is all about changing perceptions. They love getting people to reassess their ideas of what a soft drink can be using ancient traditions adapted for the modern world. Instead of creating a predictable drink that would immediately appeal to everyone’s tastes and expectation, they decided to start brewing kombucha; one that was unapologetically punchy, healthy and damn delicious. Enjoy it in place of artificially produced, sugary soft drinks, mix it with your favourite spirit, or use it as an alternative to beer, cider or wine when you don’t feel like drinking.

Brewing kombucha should always be done with passion, love, care and attention to detail. Therefore, JARR brews and bottles its kombucha in their own state-of-the-art brewery in Oudenaarde to ensure that it is crafted to the highest standards of quality and consistency.

JARR Kombucha naturally contains antioxidants, beneficial acids and is low in calories. After fermentation our kombucha goes through a bespoke metho
