Winter wonderland in the kitchen

Winter wonderland in the kitchen by silksofine featuring vintage plates

Summer is often identified and described with the words ‘free’ and ‘freedom’. I’ve met Free People about three years ago and it was crash for first sight. They were, and still are completely different from any other online stores by keeping this very bohemian, fresh vintage image. They are striving to reach the smart, creative, confident and comfortable in all aspects of her being type of girl/woman, who’s free and adventurous, and also as they explain; ‘sweet to tough to tomboy to romantic. A girl/woman who likes to keep busy and push life to its limits, with traveling and hanging out and everything in between; who loves Donovan as much as she loves The Dears, and can’t resist petting any dog that passes her by on the street.’ Free People offers – besides the clothing line – also a range of shoes, bags, accessories and lingerie. UK-born beauty, Daisy Lowe fronts Free People’s new campaign for its Intimates collection where Daisy stars in a series of romantic images shot by Guy Aroch. Accompanying the images, Free People has also released a video starring the Daisy and male model, Jacques Naude. Titled, ‘Neighbor’, the short film captures Lowe as she’s attempting to get her neighbor’s attention with a series of quirky and funny moments…Simply lovely and free. PS.: Don’t forget; as much as summer is the time of ‘freedom’, it is also the best time for falling in love;)

Sommer wird oft mit den Worten ‘Frei’ und ‘Freiheit’ identifiziert und beschrieben. Ich habe Free People vor drei Jahren kennengelernt und es war Liebe auf dem ersten Blick. Sie waren, und sind es immer noch, völlig anders als alle anderen Online Shops, indem sie ein sehr bohemehaftes, frisches Vintage Image haben. (more…)

If you would like to define vintage fashion, strictly speaking, is clothing and accessories that are at least 25 years old and usually carry the signatures of the era when they were designed/produced. However this time frame has loosened recently and we consider much newer pieces vintage. Wearing vintage is a bit like living in a baroque house, or eating with hundreds-year-old gold cutlery; it has high historical and aesthetic value, it provides individuality to the wearer or owner due to its rareness. The goodwill value of vintage, in the business life, turns into tradable assets, which increase in value over time…This is how the whole collecting tradition works, whether we talk about paintings, vintage clothes or veteran cars. No matter if we consider vintage furniture, bags or jewellery, there is one truth, people fall in love with the history behind the pieces.

Versucht man Vintage Fashion zu definieren, so spricht man streng genommen von Kleidung und Accessoires, die mindestens 25 Jahren alt sind und üblicherweise den Stempel der Ära, in der sie designt/ produziert wurden, tragen. (more…)

I really appreciate good-size clutches because of two reasons: everything fits in it what you need during Fashion Week – notebook, iPad, charger and basic make-up, while it looks ultra stylish at the very same time. The Parisian streets were buzzing from clutches in different colours, shapes, materials but they had a thing in common: they all looked gorgeous as the wearers were holding them tight with the matching nail polish and rings on their hands. Do you have a favourite piece?

Ich schätze eine größere Clutch aus zwei gründen: alles, was man während der Fashion Week braucht passt rein – Notebook, iPad, Ladegerät, etwas Make-up –  während es zugleich ultra stylisch aussieht. Die pariser Straßen waren voller Clutches in verschiedensten Farben, Formen und Materialien, aber eins hatten sie alle gemeinsam: sie sahen alle toll aus, wie sie von ihren Trägerinnen mit dem passenden Nagellack und den passenden Ringen an den Händen  festgehalten wurden. Habt ihr ein Lieblingsstück? (more…)
