I hope you guys appreciate today’s post, because it’s special in a sense that it’s featuring menswear, which is quite rare on the blog. It has two and a half reasons why I couldn’t just ‘walk away’ from mentioning it; most of all it’s ZARA, and that’s already something worth to be mentioned, the second is that the scene is happened to be the beautiful Budapest, and a half is that every woman needs a stylish man;) ZARA’s men’s collections always manage to stay masculine and sleek by aiming the men on the go. Making a return for the fall collection, the range includes chinos, leather jackets, trench coats, tailored blazers and oversized bags in the selection of heavy materials – perfect for business or travelling as well. The black&white images and the streets of Budapest recalled the perfect forwarder of the winter months, not to mention the masculine silhouettes and clean lines worn by dashing young models…As can be expected from Zara A/W13 collection it is such a simply yet sophisticated affair that is effortlessly stylish.
Ich hoffe, euch gefällt der heutige Post, denn er ist etwas Besonderes in dem Sinne, dass er von Männerkleidung handelt, was auf diesem Blog ziemlich selten ist. (more…)

While checking out the latest Jil Sander menswear collection from Milan Fashion Week – in which Jil chose to use colour and did it with real precision and charm – started to wonder what and who is today’s male idol, what makes a man/boy charming in the real world versus on the catwalk. From the woman point of view I would say a man is to be man if you know what I mean; masculine, tidy yet slightly stubbly, stylish but not overly dandy. That’s our husband/boyfriend/lover-to-be; but what about the new generation of literally beautiful boys? Hazel eyes, freckles here and there, curly tresses and slender proportions suggesting a bit of untouchability…being a blank beauty so to say is rather in today. But beside the new wave of male models; in fashion, sometimes the reminiscence faces of the old ‘in’ (which was more man-like) walks in and still attracts – it often takes the form of nostalgia but that’s a drag. I guess there is no conclusion of this post nor an answer, it’s a challenge for us to accept, understand and catch up with the latest male in-s; but if you ask me David Gandy is my eternal idol. What do you ladies say?
Während ich die neuste Jil Sander Männerkollektion von der Mailänder Fashion Week betrachtete – in der Jil sich entschied, Farbe zu benutzen und dies mit großer Präzision und Charme tat – fing ich an mich zu fragen, wer und was heute eine Männeridol ist und was einen Mann/Junge in der realen Welt gegenüber dem Catwalk charmant macht.
