I had the pleasure to meet the creative artist and DJ Pablo Lücker from Puresang in Amsterdam! Curious to find out more about his extraordinary ART EXPO PABLO LUCKER at VondelCS I asked him a few questions about his work of art, inspiration and successful collaborations with Porsche, Wednesday Whiskey and Hennessy. The talented Pablo graduated from Design Academy in Eindhoven and over the years he developed his own style and special signature. Led by his biggest passions in life- art and music, he travels the world and finds inspiration all around. Meeting the positive, ambitious and passion driven Pablo was more than interesting. His enthusiasm is contagious! Read the full interview, take a look at the gallery and dive into the colorful imaginary world of our spotted designer! Pablo Lucker in the spotlight!
Can you introduce yourself to our Spotted Style followers?
I am Pablo and I am 30 years old. I am a designer, a DJ. And I make art.
Your last successful project is the ART EXPO PABLO LUCKER. Can you tell us more about it? What inspired you to create it and how did you get so passionate about it?
I had the chance to do an art exposition. It was at Vondelpark, at the VondelCS. Beautiful environment and big building with enough space inside and outside. I was working for this project and cooperated with different brands in order to show that art is more than paintings. If you have a strong handwriting you can use it and apply it on cars, bathtubs or even shoes.

One of our first spotted fashion dictators Monica rocked her personal record at Nike Women’s Run! It is time to applause her and let you know more about the event… One of the largest running series for women in cities all over the world – Toronto, Hong Kong, Paris, Milan, Moscow and of course Amsterdam. On May 16th, 6023 women took over the streets of Amsterdam to push their boundaries and run their best 10KM! The race was amazing! Seeing more than 6000 women ready to rock their running shoes and beat their personal records really plays a very motivational role to do your best.Especially when you hear the crowd cheering for you through the streets of beautiful Amsterdam. So, having that many people supporting you does the trick – beating your personal record never seemed easier!
If you are brave enough to start, you are strong enough to finish! #betterforit #werunamsterdam
Yesterday we had new models in the spotlight and their names are Snoopy and Belle! It did not take long until we went back to one of our favorite spots in Amsterdam. Gallery 5&33 at art’otel opened its doors yesterday to reveal the beauty of the travelling exhibition ‘Snoopy and Belle in Fashion’. Our editor in chief Nadina Gorano was warmly welcomed at the entrance of the modern gallery, by the lovely Manon van der Brand, Sr.PR Manager of Maison PR. The gallery was transformed into a real fashion paradise, full of mini Snoopy and Belle models and each of them was wearing a different outfit from world famous designers and fashion houses. The outfits were with a special attention to the detail and each of them was a real piece of art.
The event was classy, stylish and full of glamour. We were happy to spot some familiar faces from the fashion world at the opening. Our friend and spotted model Joyce Bakker was one of them. We enjoyed the looks of the fashionably dressed vinyl dolls, having a glass Moët et Chandon champagne and delicious bites. Choosing our favorite couple of dolls was difficult, taking in mind the great work of each designer, so we had to make few rounds until we pick our winner. Spotted Style’s top choice was Edwin Oudshoorn’s glamorous look of Snoopy and Belle.
The Dutch designer attended the official opening of the fashion exhibition and signed the stand where his dolls are placed. Edwin’s romantic designs of the suit and the dress of Snoopy and Belle got our attention. The rest of the outfits were created by Anna Sui, Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, Oscar De La Renta, Giorgio Armani, Hermés, Betsey Johnson, Bibhu Mohapatra, Calvin Klein Collection, Christian Siriano, Costello Tagliapietra, DKNY, Diane Von Furstenberg, Dsquared2, Dries Van Noten, Emanuel Ungaro, Isaac Mizrahi, Isabel Marant, J. Mendel, Kenneth Cole, Lisa Perry, MAC Cosmetics, Opening Ceremony, Philip Treacy, Rodarte, Royal Asscher, Swarovski, Tracy Reese, VPL by Victoria Bartlett, and Zac Posen. If you are familiar with the work of the brands, you could spot easily which outfits are designed by the certain fashion house.
Snoopy and Belle definitely have style and if you are seeking for a new inspiration, the right place to find it is at the gallery 5&33, art’otel! Snoopy and Belle will be in town and you can meet them until 23rd of June at Gallery 5&33 in Amsterdam!
