‘We are Mrs. Van der Heijde and Mrs. Van Dries. She lives in Amsterdam and I’m visiting her. We just went shopping for tableware at this lovely crockery shop around the corner. You should go there some time.’

‘It’s so nice to be together in a picture for once. Will you send it to me? I’ll write down my home address. And please give your business card to my friend, she does own a computer.’

I used to work for Crazy Johnny, a Waterlooplein celebrity. He was a pro in buying and selling vintage and he was the first to sell those flared adidas training trousers that everybody wore during the nineties.

Mark and his son Tiago like to dress alike. When I met them they were wearing their favorite Saturday stroll outfit. Slick blazer, fancy shirt and, to top it all off, a pair of sunglasses. There’s one difference though, Mark explains: ‘He’s better-looking than me.’
