+ VOIX: Hien Le

If you allow the massive graffitied face by the front entrance to put you off from buzzing the bell at Eisenbahnstr. 11, you’re missing out immensely. Buried within – by which I mean you have to shoulder past several doors, a couple of courtyards, one holding a quaint two-story house, and then descend into a...

A grey mist swallows up Berlin but in a Cuvrystrasse apartment-turned-design studio at no.21, a wood stove sends comfort waves from the far corner, keeping the pace flowing for the eponymous duo of ISSEVER BAHRI: Derya and Cimen. Their welcome is as warm as the massive wool jumpers being respectively worn and in protest of...

+ Railed Ring 17.825

Out of a basement design studio comes the freshly fabricated Railed Ring 17.825 by GabrielDesigns in conjunction with Brussels-based LMBRJK Studios. Product Details: 19 layers of 1mm Slovenian spruce wood – wine designed (whilst listening to Andrew Lawrence), sized to 17.825mm diameter, laser cut, glued, hand sanded, and rubbed down with teak oil finishing.

Pedro is cute and furry. He knows this. Given his esteemed self-regard, he sits at the head of the table. Literally ON the table. And watches and waits. For the coffee being hand ground, milk being foamed, bread toasting away, Hollandaise sauce being whipped up and drizzled atop the chicken. Breakfast of champions and Pedro...

+ Until Gabe Returns

A 2006 Chateau La Tour Margaux calls for an egregious DINNER so a “black-toed” chicken with butter-soaked rosemary stuffing was thrown into the oven while the evening witnessed aperitifs, mashed sweet potatoes, ginger carrots, and steamed cranberry sauce. But far be it for winos to restrain to one bottle so the competitor that rose to...

+ SISLEY FW 2012

There’s an old photograph of a charcoal grey jumper being worn in a Dean & DeLuca. A happy smile accompanies the coffee in hand; you could feel invincible against the NYC winter winds. After years of replacement attempts, one worthy of the legacy finally arrived in this season’s SISLEY collection. Looking back at the winter...

+ XX Into Bruxelles

Excruciatingly bad coffee saved by a bag of exceptional M&Ms, KFC as the only remotely edible source of consumption, and outrages against drivers cruising less than 200kph sums up the majority of the trip from Berlin to Bruxelles. But as backs stretch in anticipation of destination, Calgary switches to Sunset and the lyrics draw two...

+ HiGH Mag – RADIO ROSCO

The sirens just heard over BBC live footage seems to mentally bring a close to an idyllic, though hard-worked, summer spent in Tel Aviv. Recently published on HiGH Magazine, I distinctly recall stepping off Allenby’s bus-roaring sidewalks, and ducking through a doorway marked by a faded yellow sign. Housed on the ground floor of a...

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

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...

Fingertips never forget that particular feel. It’s sinfully soft and elegant, shimmering and confident. My first encounter was ten yeas ago, stepping onto a blackened show-room floor in Los Angeles. I turned and there to the left dramatically and strategically spot-lit, a 44 quietly eyeing me up. Dyed a blue so dark, it was on...
