THE LOVE CONNECTION || freedom to love the way you want to love
Choose your color. Choose your style. Choose your direction in life. It’s you who defines yourself. Regardless of age, gender or body shape.
Freedom is what we value above all. It’s at the heart of our BestBasics collection. We encourage and empower everyone to dress and express however they want.
We celebrate different approaches to freedom. This year, we celebrate the freedom to love the way you want to love. We’re proud to present ‘The Love Connection’: A variety of love stories, as told by real people, styled in 10DAYS BestBasics.
NINE & ALYAR
Alyar is born in Luxembourg and brought up in an American / Iranian household. He works as an art director and music producer. Nine lives in Amsterdam, does modeling work and speaks at events about body positivity.
Nine: ‘We moved in together right before the first lockdown. That meant there was nowhere to go, nowhere to hide. We really, really got to know each other. And that’s also love. Being free to be yourself. Your true self. With all the good and the bad. That’s exactly where we are right now.’
Alyar: ‘Totally. We’re now inseparable. But we still have our own lives. As in friends, work and hobbies. I think any healthy relationship should leave room for that. Allowing both partners the freedom to do whatever it is they’re passionate about.’
DIEDE & CHERONEY
Diede and Cheroney are both dancers. Next to this Cheroney also works as a dance teacher, model and choreographer.
Diede: We’re both professional dancers, so sometimes we’re away from home for weeks, or even months. But we don’t let that get between us. You need to have room to follow your dreams in a relationship. We happen to share the same dream, so we both know what it means to pursue it.’
Cheroney: ‘To us, freedom also means being. Being present, being able to be yourself. There are many countries where you can’t be yourself as a member of the LGBT-community. Luckily, we don’t experience it that much in the Netherlands. But when we do, we walk away. There’s no point in wasting energy on negativity.’
