FASHION XX

+ perret schaad

Fashionable people are mostly free-looters. I admit to it, I submit to it, I pride it. Fashion Parties always promise the following (in order of importance): beautiful women, free booze, great clothes, and a selection of delectable finger-foods. And I can snap pictures without looking like a tourist. These images are from this previous season’s...

I really did have all intentions to go for the classic black chucks but when I saw the Jack Purcell leather high tops…chachiiinnngg!

As promised, Leo and Matilda sent over a couple images featuring southern French foot-ware. Note the bright stripy socks, definitely paired with trous. And ofcourse the classy feminine oxfords.

A quick walk between Wrangelstrasse and Oppelnerstrasse resulted in some nice fashionable shots. Including NEON ORANGE shoes! And ladies, a yellow/tan shoulder bag is IN.

I finally got around to processing a few images from Barcelona. Aaaah los colores de EspaƱa! Just a few days but I managed to capture some nice moments. I wish I had operated the camera shutter more frequently but with 25 degrees weather and delicious tapas and cold mojitos…I rest my case.

+ when in south france part II

A trip down to Nice to escape the cold Berlin air unintentionally ended up in some interesting fashion shots. Where even young teens have developed their very own personal and quite particular casual yet chic fashion. No doubt these youths will be discovering the sartorial world in just a few years coming.

Gentlemen of Berlin, North Italian tailoring has arrived in Berlin. DANDY of the GROTESQUE is a made-to-measure fashion house located on little known Gormannstrasse, number 17b. A Saturday walk over to a favored coffee shop resulted in passing by an open door and thus the convivial introduction to Itamar, the designer behind the name. The...

The U8 is essentially the metro line of the eccentric and the straight up weird. And sometimes it crosses into the creative. The latest sighting was gentleman who kept twitching his mouth into a sly smile and occasionally wringing his hand, making his gold watch tinkle. But of note was his mad mustard-yellow hawaiian shirt...

Summer’s slipping through our fingers here in Berlin but that doesn’t mean hats are gone quite yet. It can be JUST the thing to complete the look. And you don’t even have to pull rabbits out of them. However, be warned, you could end up with a Neal Caffrey flair.

Today, Kreuzberg was not to my liking, so I escaped and made it back to old Pberg. Where the red theme is still playing strong through the weekend! The red beanie speaks volumes.

It’s a brisky 15 degrees in Berlin with sunny skies, making it feel identical to a NYC autumn day. Red trousers seemed to be ideal for the weather and it seems everyone in Berlin agrees on the red groove today! Bon weekend!

Smelly and stinky, socks absorb all that sweat between your toes. Disgusting. Thank goodness they normally stay hidden. BUT! When the house party starts to kick up, stained whites or bland black may not be the way to bring on the dancing vibe. Checkered purple or the flash of pink can bring up the mood...
