Five Fashion Finds at Bomboclat Festival 2017
The first ever Bomboclat Festival on the beach of Zeebrugge was a vibrant weekend full of hot dancehall rhythms, lots of dancing, and joyful people. The fashion had to follow suit, so we found five festival-ready outfits that were perfect for this colourful place.
Eline's style immediately stood out from the crowd. The broderie on her split back t-shirt was summery en chique at the same time. In her comfy but nicely fitting mom jeans and bow sliders, she was ready for a night of partying on the sand.
Sparkling from afar, we spotted Fayb's gold fanny pack: a bold accessory to a 'jeans shorts and white tee' look. Her style definitely made a statement, and that's aside from the one on her t-shirt. Shaving off all of her hair was part of an emotional process for many reasons, she said, so more power to her!
Fluted sleeves, peekabo cut, floral pattern: everything you need in a flowy beach top. Luna paired her top with slashed knee jeans and another must-have for this summer: round red tinted sunglasses. Luna: "I feel comfortable in my own body like this, showing a little skin but not too bare."
In this (almost) all black outfit, Ange doesn't disappear into the background. Instead she had a shimmer of gold on her shoes, and a pop of green in her headwrap, something that she started a whole movement around. "Osez le Foulard, dare to wear a headwrap!" Ange explains, "There are so many styles to try, many women feel empowered flaunting a colourful headwrap."
On the last day of Bomboclat, the weather was a little more gruesome. So Kris bundled up in comfy sweatpants, offset by some classic black Converse and a vintage feel jeans jacket. "I didn't really think about my look", Kris told us, "I'm inspired by a lot of things, but the West Coast style is kind of my favourite".

Meet 21-year old producer Messoins, the brain behind YouTube series #JourneyOfABeat
Music and storytelling: its a match made in heaven for Arsène Rurangiza aka music producer and composer Messoins. He makes the art of producing beats look easy in his YouTube series Journey of a Beat. Messoins takes his viewers on a musical journey during which he explains step-by-step how he produced a certain beat. The digital music composer takes his beatmaking videos to the next level by inviting artists for each session. They write lyrics to his beats and perform the song live at the end of the video.
