Transparent Disks

Boys do so good with fragile details. Mellow shapes fluently added onto classic tailoring. Female innocence paired with male eagerness.

Diaphanous Skin

Everyone should own a sheer, nude coloured t-shirt. Being dressed and naked at the same time is arresting. And it does create beautiful pictures.

Real-size magazine spread runway looks revived. Captured by ingenious Marcelo Krasilcic. I especially adore the food plates arrangement in the second picture.

The Beauty And The Beast

Cheap Monday Spring/Summer 2009 vs. German White Trash

There's always a fine line between good trash and bad trash. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Acid wash is a nice example: usually it doesn't work if you actually think the clothes you wear are beautiful.

Feline Era

Magazine Vogue Hommes International

The kitten love continues. By now I am quite convinced that my admiration for everything furry and leopardy has spread into the world of fashion editorials. Otherwise I can't explain the tremendous tendency to show men and cats.

Osman Yousefzada Fall/Winter 2009

Variations of nothing but purity. Each look cleary communicates its uniqueness and aesthetic intention. No need for hidden meaning or pretentious references.

Primary Forms

Sculptures Larry Estridge

My new favourite activity: bending, folding and curving. Can be applied to any form of work. Because we all know: technique is key.

Purple Puffling Fight

Emporio Armani Fall/Winter 2009 vs. Puffling Popples

Time to cuddle. Does anyone besides me know these little fluffy guys? I had one in yellow!

Rope, Burn, Strangle

Photos Chris Vidal

My rakish mind just recalls the strangling scene in Ken Park. A strong, stimulating and inspirational image. Quoting youthful insatiableness and the self-destroying longing for intensity.

Tim Hamilton Fall/Winter 2009

With a gentle whiff of gloominess, Mr. Hamilton creates pieces of concinnity. Fine yet powerful structures, contradictory materials and feisty yet femnine silhouettes. Never missing a poignant edge.

The series Internet Sex Photos shows pornography with the people removed. Good, hu?

Cuteness Factor

Photos Ben Toms

I am officially obsessed. Everywhere I go I see leopard prints. Everything that strikes my mind is animalistic. If there is no sign of recovery soon, I will have to rename this blog into Kitten & Horst.

Detail Devotion

Gaspard Yurkievich Fall/Winter 2009

The best use of leopard print can be admired at Gaspard Yurkievich. The perfect balance. The perfect way for men to dress in kitten love. All you need is a pair of socks.

Bavarian Sausage

Rediscovered in the depths of my closet while putting away the winter stuff and bringing out the clothes for spring time: this traditional Bavarian jacket. Freakin' hot, I must say. Sometimes it's so good to be from Germany.

From The Front And From Behind

The advantages are obvious. An all-in-one keeps you warm.

Window Shopping II

There's nothing more exquisit and elegant than German nail studio and hairdresser windows. Nothing more romantic and poetic. Nothing more reminescent of the Golden Age of display decoration.

Another Sad Love Song

Photos Petrovsky & Ramone

I feel like cleaning the windows. The breeze of fresh air. The sun in your face. The smell of fresh glass cleaner. Maybe naked.

Army Of Lovers

Meadham Kirchhoff Fall/Winter 2009

This collection is close to perfection. White long shirts with messy see-through details, cut-out knees, leather halters. Pieces I totally would love to wear myself.
