Silver Geegaw Fight

Stella McCartney Fall/Winter 2009 vs. £1 decoration

This coat is multifunctional. It may replace the christmas tree. And it also perfectly serves as new year's decoration.

Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2009.

Plastic foil, white cans and traces of red lipstick. I just coincidentally discoverd these incredible details, re-using trash as head pieces. Other 'hats' include car rims and bubble wrap.

Maison Martin Margiela Spring/Summer 2009

The end of a decade. The end of an era. A phantom finally disappears.

Prada Fall/Winter 2007

Developing undeniable strength and inevitable impact during the second half of the decade, Prada re-invents fashion's relevance and becomes cultural heritage. An iconic pioneer of its time.

Gaspard Yurkievich Spring/Summer 2006

2000 - 2009 is the era of homo-eroticism. The fetish of leather, bondage and short shorts. The man remaining an object of lust. Dressed and undressed.

Raf Simons Fall/Winter 2005

Despite the risk of boring you, there has not been a more suitable collection for the year 2005 than Raf Simons. Worshipped and adored for exaggerated shapes and the variation of proportion.

Preen Spring/Summer 2004

Nudity and sexualization. The revealing of male and female attributes. The strip. Under- as outerwear. Suspenders, tights and bras. Yes, the double-zero decade was sensual.

Helmut Lang Fall/Winter 2003

2003 and one designer should not be missing: Helmut Lang. His strap-cutout-reverse scenarios have conquered my heart and left me with the insatiable lust to compile a wardrobe of iconic Helmut pieces.


Ann Demeulemeester Fall/Winter 2002

In 2002 it was Ann Demeulemeester's vision that called for a deep-drawn sigh. Blackness that embraces the body like wads of smoke. Moments of exposed flesh and lost virginity.

Yohji Yamamoto Fall/Winter 2001

After endless hours of archive research and maltreated hands, I do feel a bit dizzy but I also decided about the signature look for 2001: Distorted asymmetry by Yohji Yamamoto.

Boudicca Fall/Winter 2000

I somehow like the idea of decade reviews. I honestly do think the noughties have the potential to stand out against the nineties. Although I am aware that this thesis is facing strongest disagreement. But let me prove to you. Starting with the look of 2000: Boudicca.

Comme des Garçons Spring/Summer 2002

Rei Kawakubo and newspaper iconography. Alien-esque mindreading. Futurism in 2002. Makes me remember that I desperately need some John Galliano newspaper briefs.

Images Encens

With their publication, Sybille Walter and Samuel Drira created a piece of cultural identification and fashion history. It's the aesthetic core of a visually driven conviction that spreads through the imagery of Matthew Ames, Damir Doma and Bruno Pieters.

Princess Fantaghirò 1991

Besides the fact that Brigitte Nielsen is starring as black witch, this fairytale series is pure comfort to me. A melancholic childhood memory. I also think I am in love with Romualdo. A pathetic, unattainable love.

Akris Spring/Summer 2010

Lately, it is a full-length dress that I find most appealing. In fact, everything full-length is attractive.

Friday, December 18, 2009


It's snowing. It's cold. And I want either this coat, or a baby husky as little accessory.

Hernández Cornet for NICE Design Competition

Re-use, re-cover, re-cycle. Ana Hernández Cornet's contribution to the Danish sustainability project quotes the transformation of fabrics with a circle-shaped shirt and a colour palette that revives the virginity of textiles.

Prada Fall/Winter 2006

Dries van Noten Fall/Winter 2006

Fall/Winter 2006 undeniably was the season of the kitten. I've been asked where my animalistic fascination derives from. It's the dichotomy of tackiness and timelessness.

Veronique Branquinho 1998 - 2001. Memories of fading strength and immediacy. When I was attending her womenswear presentation in Paris last March, I didn't know it will be her last one.

The Spell

Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2009

This collection was quite ingenious. Especially referring to one aspect: the slimming use of colour and construction. In fact, it is one of his strongest collections. Decent and yet impulsive.
