With the age and having worked and lived in the ever-changing fashion industry since quite a bit, ones’ shopping habits need to show some sort of consciousness and loyalty towards your own personal style. By the way, are guys any conscious shoppers? Anyway, what my routine is lately that I’m trying to make  inspiration boards, browse streetstyle blogs and most of all check my garments from last season to see what could be mixed and matched with my new in-s. Besides the must-have pale-pink wool coat, I’ll definitely go for a pair of thigh-high suede boots, preferably the flat ones though. While searching for the proper style, I ran into this lovely video staring Kate Moss for Stuart Weitzman‘s AW13 ‘Made for Walking’ campaign video. As much I love everything about the shoes, that much I love the video too; directed by independent filmmaker Balthazar Klarwein, the  short film brings to life the tangible thrill of Kate Moss stepping out in central London wearing Stuart Weitzman boots paired with her very own stylish and sexy attitude. If the shoes and Moss herself wouldn’t be appealing enough, a modern remake of the classic Nancy Sinatra song ‘These Boots Are Made for Walking’ is played throughout the video. Will you guys get a pair too? – because we are sold!

Mit dem Alter und weil ich schon eine ganze Weile in der schnelllebigen Modeindustrie gearbeitet und gelebt habe, sollten die Einkaufsgewohnheiten schon ein gewisses Bewusstsein und Loyalität zum eigenen Stil zeigen. (more…)

Ports 1961 catwalk show - Milan Fashion Week

Ports 1961 catwalk show – Milan Fashion Week

What a beautiful second day we had in Milan yesterday, starting with a delicious breakfast with the girls from Castor and continuing with reviewing the latest Giles and Mantù collections from up-close (literally up-close, I got to try on an outfit!!!). Full of delicate textures and digital prints, Giles carried on his signature lip prints applied on cool dresses, volumed pastel pink coats and appliquéd onto chiffon sleeves, while the digital prints pictured Kate Moss.

Mantù also did something truly beautiful; with the inspiration board picturing detail-rich architectural master pieces, the dresses spoke of the same; beaded collars, floral embellishments and clean lines featured their Spring/Summer 2014 pieces. The highlight of the day though was the Ports 1961 show for the very first time in SilkSoFine’s life – from the first to the last minute our attention was driven by the stunning palette of walking beauties. The collection lined up colours from wintery whites and blacks to warm late summer slash autumn camels through springy pinks reminding me of the four seasons, in the shapes of boxy coats, A-line skirts and pleated dresses. The day ended with proper ‘dolce vita’ feeling in the companion of delish cocktails and light dinner.

Wir hatten gestern so einen wundervollen zweitenTag in Mailand! Er begann mit einem leckeren Frühstück zusammen mit den Mädels von Castor und anschließend schauten wir uns die aktuellen Giles und Mantù Kollektionen aus der Nähe an (und ich meine buchstäblich aus der Nähe, ich durfte sogar ein Outfit anprobieren!!!).

Kate Moss’ accessories collection that is featuring tablet cases and phone covers has been unveiled! The supermodel held an intimate lunch the day before yesterday at The Ivy – as stated on Vogue, where she summed up her inspiration “I was inspired by all the things I love. It was very much about the texture and the detail – a star, a stud, some leather.” The collection that drew inspiration from the model’s own wardrobe, reflects a luxurious grunge edge thank to the range of crocodile leathers, sharp yet classy silhouettes and sophisticatedly studded details. The Kate Moss Accessories collection for Carphone Warehouse launches in selected stores and online at from July 24. Prices start at £14.99 for a smartphone case (designs available for iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4) and go up to £49.99 for a large tablet cover (see the full collection here). Watch out, the second collection is already on its way, so you better stock up your very first Kate Moss piece!

Kate Moss’ Accessoires Kollektion, die Tablet und Handy Hüllen beinhaltet, wurde enthüllt! Das Supermodel hielt vorgestern ein vertrauliches Mittagessen im The Ivy ab – wie die Vogue berichtet, wo sie ihre Inspiration zusammenfasste: “Ich wurde von allen Dingen, die ich liebe, inspiriert. Es ging dabei sehr ums Material und die Details – ein Stern, Nieten, etwas Leder.” (more…)

British supermodel and tanning icon, Kate Moss, has been announced as the new face (and body) of St Tropez’s fake tan campaign. The images, which were released last morning, include photos of Kate lounging around the pool wearing nothing but the tan itself, while in another shot dressed in a stunning white costume that enhances her perfectly golden skin. I guess that St Tropez’s collaboration with Kate gives them the ultimate stamp of approval on the quality of their products and will attract many more loyal customers. One of the best known beauty skincare experts in the world, Nichola Joss, who’s work is routinely featured in the highest profile magazines, including Vogue, In-Style and Marie Claire was also on board to create Kate’s look with flawless finish, and let her shine again.

I reckon that you all have heard about Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, and also about Cara Delevingne being frequently referred to as the ‘new Kate Moss’. If you know how they look, you immediately realise that it isn’t much about having the common outer traits. One thing they share for sure is that they both made a stir in the fashion industry and success came fast to both of them. Before Kate there was a strong preconceived idea of what beauty was and she effortlessly changed it, while – besides undoubtedly being the new beauty idol – Cara has rather made a difference with her inner traits. She has a great energy, and it’s rare in life that you find a person who honestly doesn’t care, and does it in a rather cool way. It sets a good example for the fellow models. It’s the fresh vivacious smile where her biggest charm lies. In basically a year or two, she made it to all the runways, has been on the cover of Vogue, appeared in ads for Burberry, Chanel and H&M, and is currently the face of the Yves Saint Laurent Beauty campaign. Delevingne’s star is clearly in the ascendant, and many have hailed her as the successor to Moss’s crown – most probably very rightfully…

Ich schätze, ihr habt alle schon mal von Kate Moss und Cara Delevingne gehört und auch, dass Cara Delevingne häufig als ‘die neue Kate Moss’ bezeichnet wird. (more…)

Burberry Prorsum AW13

We were lucky enough to spot Cara Delevingne as she was trying to sneak in to Somerset House’s backstage before the Issa London show. Obviously she did not manage to escape from the flashing lenses of the constantly ready photographers, who caught her pulling crazy faces and posing in ‘cute as f#ck’ shirt. So where in the world is Cara Delevingne now? Most probably halfway Milan Fashion Week to Paris Fashion Week. / Wir hatten so ein Glück, Cara Delevingne zu erspähen, als sie gerade kurz vor der Issa London Show versuchte, in den Backstagebereich vom Somerset House zu schlüpfen. Offensichtlich konnte sie nicht dem Blitzlichtgewitter der immer bereiten Fotografen entfliehen, die sie beim Grimassen Schneiden und mit einem ‘cute as f#ck’ Shirt erwischten. Und wo auf der Welt ist Cara Delevingne nun? Höchstwahrscheinlich auf halben Weg von der Milan Fashion Week zur Paris Fashion Week. (more…)
