+ barcelona through a lens

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.

+ the sunday bag

Sunday has arrived and though I dread tomorrow, at least I can have an enjoyable day, most likely sipping coffee at my favorite joint. For that, I’ve armed myself with sketchbook, drawing utensils, and a warm hand-made scarf from Iran (my thanks Amir!). And my passport…just in case I’m suddenly forced to escape the country....

+ saturday bag

We’ll see how far I get but the goal is to photograph the contents of my bag every day for a week. For all I know, this might be the most epic failure of a post series if nothing of the contents change. But it does make one aware of what’s actually inside the mysterious...

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.

Ladies and Gentlemen, take a close look – black silk tie neatly fastened with a silver tie bar and the peek of a silk pocket square – THIS you only get in New York City. The daily wear of this young architect modulates classic tailoring with urban chic. Quite interesting what you find on NoHo...

+ red friday

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!

These oxfords are the first of many shoe shots to come. Covertly shot with an iPhone cam, we’ll be checking out the shoe styles of Berlin’s U12 metro line. Stay tuned for ‘U12 SHOES’ series!

+ party for the parental units

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...
