Delicate snapshots

Currently ‘suffering’ from some post-fashion-week-syndrome, we are all thrilled, dazzled and exhausted, yet still are lively carrying each show and little detail in our heads and hearts. I’ll now make an attempt to sum up our last seven days briefly for you guys and more importantly provide a rather exciting visual treat with the usage of our own images taken by a Canon EOS M. Besides the tiredness, we are also dealing with the after effects of painful queuing in killer heels and zipping delicious alcoholic drinks, but despite all, we still wish that the season never ends.

This time we got to enjoy a few days of fashion madness in London, and thereafter in Milan for the very first time. Having previously lived in London, all the getting around went really smooth, mainly since most of the shows are concentrated at the Somerset House, as well as the designer showrooms that showcase an edit of contemporary and luxury designers over two floors to improve visitors’ navigation and ease. While in Milan it’s a bit like in Paris; in between the shows it’s a proper rush to get to one venue from the another, catching cabs and sort the maps.

Both cities though present the biggest names in fashion such as Mulberry, Burberry or Tom Ford in London, while Prada, Dolce&Gabbana and Valentino in Milan just to name a few, whereas in contrary to the big fashion houses, London also lines up the most refreshing and upcoming bunch of talents each season. Hence obviously there is a much bigger space for the underground scene in London; crazy blue hairs and eclectic styles strive to catch the press’ attention, while in Milan you rather spot hot brunettes arriving in heels and chic looks on red vespas wearing helmets.

To avoid cliches and generalisations there are argues for both; I mean London will always be the crazy, the dirty, the fun, the greatest place for the ‘anything goes’ belief. While in Milan there is an instant impulse due to the climatic zone and temperament; constant delays, matchless elegance, buzzing city life, the magical Duomo, the bella-s and ciao-s will make the Fashion Week stay unforgettable. Besides breathtaking shows, showrooms and great new connection, we enjoyed some rain and sun, croissants and cocktails here and there, the buzz around tastemakers, paparazzi, bloggers and celebrated stars. Thank you Spring/Summer 2014, you were such an unforgettable joy!

Wir leiden aktuell ein wenig am Post-Fashion-Week-Syndrom, wir sind begeistert, überwältigt und erschöpft und gleichzeitig erhalten wir jede Show und jedes klitzekleine Detail in unseren Köpfen und Herzen am Leben. Ich werde jetzt versuchen, unsere letzten 7 Tage kurz für euch zusammenzufassen und was noch viel wichtiger ist, euch einen ziemlich spannenden visuellen Leckerbissen anbieten mit Hilfe unserer eigenen Fotos, aufgenommen mit einer Canon EOS M.

Hello dear Readers! I’m finally back to you with some reports from yesterday’s busy happenings. The day started with a creamy latte, croissant and some massive rain blended sunshine. First I headed to the Somerset House where most of the designers have their latest collections, so if the show wasn’t enough you can actually have a closer look and touch – available for the press and mostly buyers. Just to mention a few, we’re currently falling for Zoe Jordan‘s degrade pieces and pastel hues as well as for the newcomer Negarin‘s silky textures and hand-painted prints. Both brands are based on the concept of balanced contrast; the androgynous with the feminine , the structured with the effortless and the classy elegance with the new cool but obviously capturing the essence from different angles.

The day continued with some shows such as KTZ at the Somerset House showcasing strong layering of sheer fabrics twisted ethnic aesthetics, while interpreting the traditional roots in the ‘now’. Distinctly modern, rebellious and definitely ones to watch. The cream of the day though was the 90-minutes-delayed, but more than fully packed Pam Hogg show, that was based on her very own dramatic performance lining up Second World War nurses in uniform-inspired separates,  whimsical headpieces, broken brides, black widows and breathtaking ballerinas. Such a diverse treat! I’m off to enjoy a few hours more in London now, will be back to you from Milan!

Hallo liebe Leser! Ich melde mich endlich wieder bei euch mit Berichten über den gestrigen Tag und seinen vielen Ereignissen. Der Tag fing mit einem leckeren cremigen Latte, einem Croissant und massivem Regen mit ein wenig Sonnenschein dazwischen an. (more…)

Jessie's pick

Jessie’s pick

Although Berlin Fashion Week already lies behind us I can still feel the breeze of sleep deficiency and the need to sort my thoughts and impressions. As inveterate as fashion week in Berlin is as great are the post-fashion week events – because people cannot get enough. Ever.
Last week I was presenting the G-Sessions opening event based on the 30th anniversary of Casio’s G-Shock model. It is actually a session of 4 events so I am still up to a closing party and post-closing party. Great expectations I guess. For this second event G-Shock collaborated with the most important bloggers from the Berlin blogger sphere. Among them were Jessie from Journelles, Jakob from Dandy Diary, Stil in Berlin’s Mary Scherpe as well as Katrin from Metropolitan Circus and other incredible bloggers. Each of them had the chance to stage their very favorite G-Shock model of which we could admire the results during yesterday’s event. Within a very beautiful yet simple and minimalistic installation the photographies of the bloggers and their selected favorite were exhibited. Naturally every watch was displayed properly and obviously ready to be bought. While Carl Jakob decided to wear the Maison Martin Margiela G-Shock (review it in last Sundays post) that has been designed in the frame of their latest designer collaboration, Jessie opted for a more colorful and fancy version in ice cream pastels. I consider this as a very well thought through summer adequate decision, since summer seems to be having an inner conflict of either being authentic or playing the cool side.
Since Voo Store hosted the event and will also be hosting the upcoming G-Sessions events and because Kenzo, Carven and co. finally brought their new collections into the stores I benefited from my attendence yesterday and reviewed the new sweaters and embroderies for you. I must say that Voo Store in Kreuzberg is one fantastic store, offering an incredible vibe that no Kenzo store or department store could ever provide. For sure this is not for everybody but the ones, looking for a contrasty and grounded high-fashion shopping experience. While the Kenzo tiger did not caught my attention too much during the last seasons, the new cloudy and heavenly implemented prints are more attractive to me. The unostentatious label embroidering in light silver is the character I was wishing for in times of the tiger that is still of great actuality. I always had this strange feeling that this Kenzo tiger was taking all over and did not leave space for individuality. Since I am hyper-sensitized by now, I feel this dangerous penchant for this Kenzo creation and I do not hope that I will end up with a tiger in my closet when this should be long gone. Maybe I will opt for the clouds, what do you say?

Auch wenn die Berliner Fashion Week nun schon wieder ein ganzes Stück hinter uns liegt, verspüre ich noch immer einen Hauch meines Schlafdefizits und dem dazugehörigen Drang, meine Eindrücke passé passieren zu lassen und zu sortieren. So unverbesserlich, wie die Berliner Fashion Week ist, sind auch die ‘Nach-Events’ – weil die Leute einfach nicht genug kriegen können. Immer. (more…)

You usually follow blogs because you either share the blogger’s interest, personal view on fashion, lifestyle, or wardrobe; first and last, the ones, which you can almost identify yourself with. In my eyes, Camille behind the Camille Over the Rainbow blog is one of these bloggers with all of her androgynously chic and crisp white-on-white or black and white matches. In today’s street-style cavalcade it’s hard to point out a few icons who really follow their own way of perceiving up-and-coming, and fading away trends or fads. Keeping a unique flavour in style despite the ever-changing fashion world is crucial, mainly if you put it all out there, and yet becoming a role model of many.

Normalerweise verfolgt man Blogs, weil man entweder die Interessen des Bloggers teilt, die persönliche Ansicht auf Mode, den Lifestyle oder den Kleiderschrank; vor allen Dingen diese, mit denen man sich nahezu identifizieren kann. (more…)

No matter how digitalised world we are living in, there will always be a need for print publications. It is so much about holding a heavy piece of book, its texture, its smell, the beautifully printed images. These six books I have chosen to show you have seducing visual material on fashion and beauty. The Little Black Jacket series styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld featuring over hundred celebrities, while each showcasing Chanel’s eponymous tweed black jacket. Model Kitchen stands out a bit because it is also a very functional cookbook, in which there are 75 ‘clean living’ recipes featured from Cesar Casier. The Allure of Beauty was written by film critic Karen Durbin in collaboration with ELLE magazine and is filled with inspiring quotes and images of cinema’s most captivating actresses. In Vogue is the definitive history of the world’s most famous fashion magazine describing its evolution from Diana Vreeland to Anna Wintour. Bazaar Greatest Hits is a fabulously stylish visual journey through fashion history. Closer celebrates the diversity of subjects that has made Scott Schuman, The Sartorialist’s photography so unique. Which one of them is on your wish-list?

Egal wie digitalisiert die Welt, in der wir leben, ist, es wird immer das Bedürfnis nach gedruckten Werken geben. Es ist schön ein schweres Buch in den Händen zu halten, es anzufassen, es zu riechen, die wunderschön gedruckten Bilder. (more…)
