Hermes Spring 2014 RTW (All images: Fairchild)

Hermès Spring 2014 RTW (All images: Fairchild)

In case you are already missing the warmest season, the Hermès Spring/Summer 2014 collection is definitely something for you as Christophe Lemaire took the Hermès woman into the jungle. Lemaire’s big influence was Henri Rousseau, the French artist, who painted jungles without ever having seen them. The venue just as much recalled a summer-atmosphere as did the collection; deep green jungles depicted the beautiful landscape of the Amazon. The range of summerish looks spoke of botanical freshness, embracing warm earth-colours and head-to-toe floral prints.  The loose garments such as 3/4 trousers, straight dresses and trench-like airy coats flowed effortlessly around the body in a comfortable, yet slightly feminine manner. Relaxed silhouettes indicated the tropical-ease-of-living, while some statement leathers contrasted – or rather balanced – the  simple culottes and low-cut shirts. By carefully sticking to that effortless chic that defines the Hermès look, it’s was both natural, wearable, and not least lovable.

Falls ihr schon die warme Jahreszeit vermisst, dann ist die Frühjahr/Sommer 2014 Kollektion von Hermès definitiv was für euch, denn Christophe Lemaire nahm die Hermès Frau mit in den Dschungel. (more…)

How to survive post-summer depression?

We are talking about post-summer depression when you’re feeling down because you’ve just realised that summer is over and there will be no sun, swimming in the sea, sleeping under the stars, feeling the warmth of the sun on your face, dancing in the summer rains, summer loves, sexy summer gowns – for almost a year. Usually the feeling of down is stronger, the better the summer was. It’s even stronger if you realise that an average person has about 70 summers during their lifetime – only 70. Trying not to make it too dramatic, the truth is that unless you are living far up north, there is still a chance for plenty of days with proper sunshine, flowing dresses and warm kisses on the balcony of your favourite cafe downtown. If the climate tricks us, we still have a few tips to give heed to:

1. Seize the sunny moments – try to take a walk, work and be outside as long as the sun up and out!

2. Embrace colours – A colourful nail polish, a newly bought colourful painting will light up your every-days!

3. Instead of massive coats, use clever layers by incorporating your summer wardrobe into your daily outfit during the colder seasons!

4. Print out your vacation photos and don’t hide them in an album; palms and blue skies will keep you warm in the heart!

5. Don’t forget; a little sweat in the rain did not kill anybody yet – keep up your daily jogging!

6. Company, company and company – don’t replace your social life with romantic movies and pancakes!

7. Think positive; each season has its beautiful side, give it a try and explore it’s magic!

Have a beautiful autumn dear All, and don’t forget to share your tips with us!

Wir sprechen von Post-Sommerdepressionen, wenn wir traurig sind, weil wir gerade realisiert haben, dass der Sommer vorbei ist und es keine Sonne, Schwimmen im Meer, unter den Sternen schlafen, die Wärme auf dem Gesicht spüren, im Sommerregen tanzen, Sommerliebe und sexy Sommerkleider mehr gibt – und das für fast ein ganzes Jahr.

EINFACH BERLIN (credits: @iambarnie)

I was wondering whether I’m too late with this whole post or not but then I remembered the ‘never too late’ cliché, so here it comes: The story started during last Budapest Fashion Week, as in the after party massive EINFACH BERLIN T-s caught my eyes, but you know how it is – the delicious cocktails and fashionable crowd  kept me more busy than making an effort in digging deeper what does EINFACH BERLIN stand for. A few months passed by and they were there again; on Facebook, a sudden Press Release in my mailbox about the upcoming Nanushka x EINFACH BERLIN collaboration and a list of a diverse range of cooler than cool events – open-air film screenings, exhibitions, picnics and parties running under their name – that took place last week in Budapest.

To fully fill up my curiosity I managed to steal some words from Levente Trellay one of the core members of the EINFACH BERLIN team:

Reka / SilkSoFine: How did you guys come up with the idea of EINFACH BERLIN?

Levente / EINFACH BERLIN: Let me recall one of our previous interviews…We figured out the whole idea together with some friends from Berlin as both parties were sharing the enthusiasm for a cultural exchange. The birth of those friendships also meant the birth of EINFACH BERLIN. The whole idea is much about seizing the summer so to say, celebrating a cultural niche, openness and not least Budapest as our very own Berlin.

Reka / SilkSoFine: Why Berlin and not London for example?

Levente / EINFACH BERLIN: We’ve been cherishing a much more personal relationship with Berlin than with London from the beginning, two of us also used to live there, we go back quite often…they are more alike.

Reka / SilkSoFine:  The mini festival is over, how would you evaluate it?

Levente / EINFACH BERLIN: It much lived up to our expectations, honestly, it had the vibe! Thank to our friends’ support and the ever growing network we are dealing with, the mini festival embraced some art, gastro, music, fashion in collaboration with restaurants, bars and Hungarian designer, Nanushka. It’s been the greatest pleasure to see as these fusions worked out.

Reka / SilkSoFine: Is there going to be an ‘EINFACH BUDAPEST’ movement in Berlin as well?

Levente / EINFACH BERLIN: Yes exactly, our goal is to start the vice versa story in Berlin.

Reka / SilkSoFine:  And what about the Nanushka collaboration? I’ve got really excited…

Levente / EINFACH BERLIN: It was Barnabas’ idea to sort of fill in the ‘fashion’ gap during the mini festival, and since we mutually respect each other’s work with Szandra Sandor ( Nanushka), it turned out really good. We needed the photos quite fast though so Barnabas just photographed the pieces on me and her sister at the Nanushka-base.

Reka / SilkSoFine: And my last question would be, what’s the most attractive and special about Berlin for you?

Levente / EINFACH BERLIN: Let’s see…most of all Berlin is very complex, diverse and exciting. The atmosphere suggests openness; it’s very receptive. And last but not least it’s very personal – many thrilling details, cleverly used public spaces that makes it very lovable and livable for someone blessed with constant thirst for the rhythm of Berlin’s vibrant life.

Reka / SilkSoFine: Thank you Levente and we wish you all the very best for the future!

Ich hab mich gefragt, ob ich nicht schon zu spät bin mit diesem Post, aber dann dachte ich an das ‘Es ist niemals zu spät’ Klischee, also los geht’s: Die Geschichte begann während der letzten Budapest Fashion Week, als mir massiv viele EINFACH BERLIN T-s bei der After Party ins Auge fielen, aber ihr wisst ja wie es ist – die leckeren Cocktails und die modische Menge haben mich mehr als genug beschäftigt, als dass ich mir die Mühe gemacht hätte, tiefer zu bohren, wofür EINFACH BERLIN steht.
