+ MBFWB AW14 Recap

To prep for the week, the whiskeys at NEU! Bar were appropriately clean and vanilla smooth – perhaps too much so. Despite the pains of waking the following morning, a bit of gourmet coffee clears the brain and so started the HIEN LE show – the 10am opening runway for the latest Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week...

“Portuguese fashion isn’t about being obvious. It’s not about being an Individual, it’s about being part of a group.” – so I was told while enjoying lunch on a sun drenched balcony overlooking Lisbon. This explains my failures to spot the fashionables at first glance – save for the occasional money-spenders breezing down Avenida da...

+ 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...

Even within structures of very specific dress regulations, these Turkish ladies in Istanbul express themselves in style with the patterning of their eşarplar.

Cow-print and whale-print!: We’ve located the Germans in Istanbul. I’ve been flown into the city to meet with the Öcher Safari team adventuring overland by car from Germany to Jordan in the Allgäu-Orient Rallye. Here’s a sneak peak but stay in touch with Mercedes-Benz for the full film-photo-written coverage in a couple of weeks to...

+ The Journeymen Style

It’s a 7am flight. I queue up and wonder: What ever happened to the Golden Age of Travel? There was glory then in the journey itself, a celebrated experience answered by passengers with sartorial expressions. Airport halls, rail stations, and boat docks were the catwalks of the time. Journeymen understood that luggage, attire, comfort, and...

Haberdasher (noun) \ˈha-bə(r)-ˌda-shər\ – a dealer in men’s clothing and accessories Over a year ago, I chanced across a posting on Trashness of a Drakes paired with an Ascot Chang. I’ve been on the hunt since for a paisley piece. Though the chase is still on, the search along with random doses of migratory plane...

+ VOIX: Jason Bruen

Jason Bruen – owner of Reserve Supply Company – is busy laying out new stock when I walk through the door. Shaking hands, I leave him to sort things out while I make an inspection of the other-worldly interior. Other-wordly that is, to Houston. Upon return, I make a remark about the unique character of...

+ Time Travel, Soho London

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...

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...
