+ MBFW Berlin Have a Laugh

LAUGH – (verb) To express certain emotions, especially mirth or delight, by a series of spontaneous, usually unarticulated sounds often accompanied by corresponding facial and bodily movements. To see, and more importantly to BE seen – seems to be the theme for those attending MBFW Berlin, more of a party than a serious intake of...

+ MBFW Berlin LENA HOSCHEK

Exiting HIEN-LE’s soft-toned collection gliding toward the rack of photographers, I dive into SISSI GOETZE’s studio exhibition. Shirts hold a lovely detail with ties sliding through fabric tie-bars. The drape is soft and round without much complications but winged caps, cuffed trousers revealing ankles, and small layering details add the touch of finesse. But the...

Every so often, I come across a watch that takes my breathe away. Say what you want, you know it’s true as well. That’s why “the watch” is on your wrist…or you wish it were. So I scrambled for my camera when Jon Kleinhample – the wood loving maniac behind LMBRJK – sauntered out of...

+ Nude Espresso, London

A reddish-brunette with tightly swept back hair sits dead centre on the long leather bench. NO, this is not about chattin her up! Her one hand holds a red felt pen. With the other, she balances her cup of double espresso and a packet of A4 editorial images. Occasionally, her left eyebrow slightly arches before...

Every once in a while, one comes across a scenario that rewinds the clock several decades at a time. Amongst the hipsters and corporate wankers on the streets of Soho, a few seconds witnessed this gentlemen carrying himself with the confidence of a man that BELONGS. No not necessarily with a bespoke piece, but note...

Sharing the wood floored atelier above Avenue Louise 134 with PieceOfChic featured in our last VOIX article, is yet another duo team running the graphic design studio, Stoëmp. Gaetano and Wojciech come across as an incredible force and their love for living life is quite apparent through the INTERVIEW BELOW. Why even their studio name...

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...

Useless yet complimentary braces! And working quite well with the shoulder bag and red winter boots.

Dear Pleb: To start with the start is rational and to start with the end is unorthodox. I am irrational. So as not to keep you waiting, it ends with instant coffee at 4/78 Lebanon Gardens, Wandsworth, London, SW18 1RH. So about this tragic downfall into the consumption of instant coffee…“We’ve created Kenco Millicano to...

This was news to me: an entire career path dedicated to producing patterns. Those to be sold to fashion houses that either catalogue them as inspirational sources, or incorporate them straight into their seasonal collections. I was under the misconception that patterns simply appeared on cloth; it was never a design issue, a designed idea...

Remember Folgers? I resist an urge to gag. I point to those commercials where the dead are resurrected (noted: by the suspicious whisps of invading steam) and zombie out of bed to the tiled kitchen island to sip their American sized mugs of brackish liquid. Well I weep to add, I’ve never had those endearing...
