Good Old Times

Here they are, the 90s. Honestly I really miss them. Check out the video and tell me what you think. You do miss the 90s, don't you? How come? Any particular singer/band? Give me inspiration for more young "oldies". Let's be nostalgic for tonight. Tonight, tonight.

Billy is dead! DIY Design

Low Waist
Spot The Looney
Jack In The Box
IKEA reloaded. Die Moebler killed the mainstream and created a new lifeform: the german avantgarde transformation of swedish design democracy.
Coddle it up, take it for a walk and give him food.

Girls On Bikes & Other Sexy Things

I've been observing the streets for a long time. Lately, I have a certain impression: bikes are the next big thing.

It seems that every clever girl with style and attitude has discovered its great potential: A sexy accessory, a faithfull and silent partner. These two ladys know how to cycle a pose:

And this cyclist lady strikes due to her company. There were times when you took your dog for a walk by bike - now it's your husband who needs to get rid of his beer belly:

So maybe it's better for the bike and the observer when it's pure and rid of any ballast. Just leaning against a wall and looking good:

But when a subculture trend becomes mainstream (what seems to happen right now), it's time for an alternative. This would be my proposal:

Jacket Acne
T-Shirt Acne
Jeans Cheap Monday
Shoes Converse

So let's troll!

Maison Martin Margiela Spring/Summer 2008

In the midnight hour
She cried more, more, more
With a rebel yell
She cried more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe
More, more, more
With a rebel yell
More, more, more
More, more, more

HorSTYLE Lesson No5

Today our inspiration is white. The new black. The color rediscovered for this seasons oh so freezy winter. Also in focus: the contrasts between its beautiful shades. White and off-white. White and mud. White and yellowed.
Add a little "calculating" and a breeze of "fresh air" (good design is so fashionable) and you're perfectly done.

Trousers Topman
Shirt Dior Homme
Sweater Dries van Noten
Shoes Topman
Calculator Plus Minus Zero

Jeans Acne
Cashmere jumper Yves Saint Laurent
Leather jacket Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair
Gloves Filippa K
Shoes Made By Elves
Humidifier Plus Minus Zero

And now, call a cab...

Styling Package

All clothes Filippa K

Charly and me gave this young boy a new look. So what do you think? I'd say a cool New York City boy of the late 80s/early 90s.

An American Index

Taryn Simon (*1975)
Cryopreservation Unit
Cryonics Institute, Clinton Township, Michigan

Taryn Simon (*1975)
White Tiger (Kenny), Selective Inbreeding
Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge and Foundation Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Places nobody knows about. Secret spaces which remain undiscovered for most of us. Scenarios we believed they only exist in fiction. Taryn Simon was granted access to the otherwise inaccessible. And captured those moments between mythology and daily functioning in her large-format camera series which is being exhibited in full for the first time at the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt (29th sep 2007 - 27th jan 2008).

Catch a glimpse of what absurd and fascinating places exist. Yours
