A BETTER BLEND
Every year in December Anouk and partner-in-crime Sophie Peelman organise the pop-up A Better Blend. A retail innovation offering out-of-the-ordinary Christmas gifts and decorations. A Better Blend has grown to be a successful project combining over 100 new and upcoming brands that complement and strengthen each other. This way these creative minds create a fresh and different shopping experience, rather than the chaotic assortment in stores during the holiday season.
Every girl needs her jewelry. Anouk translated her brass and gold fascination into the accessory brand Kyss jewelry. Her love for design and geometric shapes is clearly reflected in this minimalistic collection. All jewelry is made of brass and gold plated with 18 carat gold layer. The name, Kyss, is Norwegian for "a careful touch, as a sign of love and respect." Exactly what a jewel should be.
Triggered by each others creativity and driven by the same professional level of irony and self-relativism, designer Anouk Taeymans and self-invented copywriter Sigie Jacobs decided to refrain from pleasing the world and switch to doing their own absurd thing instead. #BITCHPLEASE was born. Since Facebook and Instagram didn’t really like their choice of words, the girls were obliged to behave (just a little) and recently changed the name to PLEASE BEHAVE.
As a design expert Anouk frequently collaborates with brands that have a corresponding vision on aesthetics and quality. Fascinated by the world of entrepreneurship and eager to inspire wherever she can, Anouk is constantly looking for new challenges, collaborations and innovative ways to express her sense of aesthetics.
