Yes, it’s MBFW Berlin time again: black bags are packed, shirts folded, suits selected, and cameras good to go. See you all inside the tent! Shortlink http://eeb.me/NbjPt

+ Anticipatory Brunch

I wake to the sound of air, getting thin in flight; And the intangible blur, where shadow kisses light; Hear, withering skies, do you? The fallings of my vagabond dream, and morning dew. It’s an institution, therefore capitalised: Brunch. It’s sacred and holy, marking the boundaries between the nightmarish business week spent smiling at imbeciles,...

+ Notes on Autumn

“…Dinginess, insanity, immensity, and use Are the lozenge projected from the square of these views.” – Edwin Denby Where does morning coffee take you? Not breakfast coffee nor brunch coffee. I mean Morning Coffee with the sun still low on the horizon. You’ve left the warmth of slumber and the first breeze of your day...

+ 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:

+ LMBRJK SADL STOOL

“Berlin, twenty stools, three days, an opening party, it’s going to be SWEEEEEEEEEET,” promised architect-turned-designer Jon Kleinhample, last we ever so sluggishly spoke, slumped down into a brown leather sofa. Several glasses of Slovenian wine with an old friend and design colleague of ten years will have this effect. I was passing through from Berlin...

+ MBFW SS2014: Hien Le

After a tempestuous night of precipitation plus a few drinks at Interview Mag’s party, the Berlin sky is blue and clear marking the start of MBFW Berlin Spring / Summer 2014 Collections. First up is Hien-Le. Spring leaves, dragonflies, and pastels comprise the majority of the motif – pristine and correct. But to what extent...

+ 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...

+ MBFW Berlin Finished

Jan 15th to the 18th. Four days of fashion observations. The tent is a strange place were I’ve noted people to hug and kiss FW acquaintances they hardly know. And where they avoid like the plague the ones they actually do know…strange. I stay with my trio of knowns and have a fantastic blast. But...

+ MBFW Berlin MICHAEL SONTAG

For the MICHAEL SONTAG show, I managed to borrow a few images here from Berlin-based fashion photographer Scott Elliott making an occasional appearance this season for a few shows. The catwalk is unusually black and the red spot lights give a dramatic boost to Sontag’s collection paired with boots that remind of 17th century French...

+ MBFW Berlin DIMITRI

Dimitri – this designer constructs. The necessity of a bag to compliment an outfit, the addition of fur around the neckline to bring out a monotone piece, or the expression of a pattern needing only itself, a long pea to visually elongate the legs, or allowing elegantly simple strap shoes to do the work.

+ VOIX: Ralf Rüller

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...

+ VOIX: Issever Bahri

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...
