+ Herbs & Eggs

+ Herbs & Eggs

Waking to a cold January morning – especially with scotched brains – demands steaming coffee and something piping hot out of the oven. So I’ve decided to forensicate some baked eggs for a continuation to the previous night’s warmth and coziness of close friends, dinner, cake, red wine, and whiskey. The hardest part is always...

+ MBFW Berlin Finished

Jan 15th to the 18th. Four days of fashion observations. The tent is a strange place were I’ve noted people to hug and kiss FW acquaintances they hardly know. And where they avoid like the plague the ones they actually do know…strange. I stay with my trio of knowns and have a fantastic blast. But...

Shot just before she went out the door but what do you make of the coat+cowhide bag+coloured scarf? Opinions? Comment below!

+ Comme des Garçons Berlin

For those of you who’s been in Fashion long enough, do you recall your own ’96 reaction to Dress Meets Body, Body Meets Dress? If you only know of this as the tagged Lumps and Bumps Collection, please consider yourself now erudite. Or how UN(?)-successful you thought the “guerrilla” stores would turn out to be...
+ Before Snow Falls

+ Before Snow Falls

There is a wintery light slicing through the streets of Berlin and the wind plays a sad tune against facades and through leaf-barren trees that only recently held golden leaves. But a walk through the city shows the Berliners aren’t ready yet for the snow to fall. As if wearing go-to-hell colours could keep winter...

Berliners beware, GabrielDesigns is back in town with the Nikon. You will be shot. And you will be headlined. First up was this chap I spied carting his bicycle up the stairs of Bernauerstraße U8. After a quick phone call, he jumped onto his machine to presumably head towards Mauerpark. But he looked back just...

In honour of Germany’s AUGUSTINER BRÄU, faraway friends, the spirit of travelling, and last minute train rides.

When the sun shines in Berlin, what else is there to do than sip rosé and sleep the late afternoon away?

+ Beyond Friedrichshain

Out in Lichtenberg where no sane Berlin hipster ventures out, lies an old warehouse wherein a small team of geniuses are designing the future. But like a ghost house, the top floor of this warehosue – unoccupied and untouched – is strangely frozen in time. Even the teacups are left out…with no whereabouts of the...
+ GORDON from Berlin

+ GORDON from Berlin

We have an extremely special guest making his debut today from Berlin, Germany. His name is Gordon, and yes he is a “gangstah hawk.” He resides in a concrete warehouse on the outskirts of the city and belongs to local photographer Scott Elliott. Gordon spends most of his time hanging out on his wooden perch...

+ VOIX: The Fundamental Group

Stephen pounds down the stairs from the design studio into the kitchen, scrambling to catch his flight with half hour to go. We assume it’s a mad dash to meet a client. In contrast, Gunnar languidly disappears for milk to make us some coffee. THE morning necessity taken care of, GabrielDesigns is then introduced to...
