I was invited by Hübsch for their VIP launch of the Autumn/Winter Collection 2019. I've known the brand for several years now and to be able to get a sneak preview of their newest collection was an opportunity I couldn't resits.
So on June 13 I got out of bed early (very early I must admit) to be in time at Schiphol Airport to hop on a plane to Billund, Denmark where I arrived after a one our flight.
At Billund airport Anders from Hübsch was waiting for me to drive me to the hotel in Herning. We had a nice talk about the differences and similarities between our two countries. My first acquaintance with Denmark, was a great one. In no time we arrived at the hotel where they had arranged a room for me.
It looks like they know me a bit, my favourite colour scheme ☺
After unpacking and freshen up I, together with some other lovely ladies, was taken to the Home of Hübsch where we were welcomed by Daniel Henriksen, one of he founders of Hübsch and led into their showroom. After everyone arrived he introduced himself and the rest of the team and told us what to expect for the rest of the day.
After the first glimpse of their collection, taking pictures of course, getting acquainted and having drinks, we got a tour by the design-team. They told us how the new collection came about, the choices they had made for fabrics, colours and materials, and why. So with this in mind, we got the opportunity to stroll through the showroom again, There was a lot of filming and taking pictures going on as you can imagine.
Next up we got a lecture by trend expert Annette Eckman. She told us all about her places of inspiration, Amsterdam and Lisbon being some of them, and why travelling and living is essential.
She made that clear by sharing her pictures with us she's taken while travelling and showed where she found the inspiration and spotted the trends. You can also find them on her Instagram account.
After listening and sitting down for an hour it was time to get active again. Time for some floral excess!
We where led to the photo studio, a gorgeous room, which was filled with flowers. All organically grown by FLOR.
After a short introduction we all got to choose our vase and get creative by making our own bouquet and take pictures of it when finished. I tried to incorporate the colours of the Dutch flag into my arrangement a little as you can see ☺
There where different colour backdrops in the studio where you could style your bouquet for the picture. To show how important the backdrop for the mood of a picture is, I took one with different colour backdrops. Which one is your favourite?
And of course, after being that busy you get hungry, dinnertime! Tables where set beautifully, all with Hübsch products of course, and we got to enjoy a delicious all vegan menu (first time for me) with a perfect matching wine and great company. Of course Instagram accounts where exchanged.
Finally there where drinks & drinkish from ISH Spirits. All 'n all it's been a great day which I have to thank Hübsch for. We really received a VIP treatment and I want to thank everyone who made that possible. Especially Sabrina for being so sweet, warm and helpful during my stay in Denmark.
T H A N K S !
Next time I'll show you the pictures of all the pretty items I came across in their showroom. I've taken so many so I'm still in the process of selection and editing. Keep you posted though!
