+ Tea&Scones

Winter rain in Lisbon calls for a bit of interior preoccupation. So initiates the investigation of the 7th floor Restaurant Bar of Hotel do Chiado. Understated yet sophisticated, it’s apt for an afternoon chat with friends or for a quiet read of your favourite journal with a bit of tea. Shortlink http://eeb.me/PYjDR

+ Saturday on Mulackstraße

“What do people wear in Berlin on the weekends?” – I was asked. I couldn’t formulate a response so instead I took my camera to popular Mulackstraße to find the street hosting a lively party. Of course the fashionables (mostly Mitte Hipsters) come for a look about and here are the takings:

+ Fashion Hacking Sunday

In a rooftop atelier at the ‘far end of the world,’ Mieze Schmuckermeier – Berlin based founder of Fashion-Hackers – hands me a foamy coffee to offset the soggy weather. A silver-studded baseball cap tops off the black of Mieze’s Cleopatra-styled hair, cut to the chin, and I realise she’s dressed to work. I am...

From the racks of Do You Read Me?, it was Gather Journal asking to be plucked this time. Though meant as a gift, I couldn’t help but photograph the pages created by Michele Outland and Fiorella Valdesolo.

Dear Interconnected Net: The sun rises. No that’s not quite correct. Let’s start over. It’s getting light out, the sun must be up. Then the day continues as portrayed in the above photo. Thereafter, the dimmer is lowered and night reigns. The banality of the greyness is strangely comforting. Brits are always going on about...

After much searching and sweaty trekking, GabrielDesigns has at long length located PORT Magazine in TLV. Solidly written articles, beautiful photography, and rich content – a prized piece to invest in. Looks fantastic on any coffee table or bookshelf (had I a coffee table or bookshelf) but definitely seems to belong in the kitchen as...

When December came I was older And snow was finally on the ground Soldiers lining up, cameras feeding the world With pictures that would mark my mind I heard his woman scream as she was begging for trust Then turning ghost-like behind the court A shotgun blast, as new years passed Oppression was on the...

+ MBFW – In the Tent V

January in Berlin isn’t the most agreeable of weathers. But the rain and cold didn’t stop us at MBFWB from looking our fashionable best! I think my favorite moment in the past four days was seeing the wide brimmed hat being escorted through the rain.
