The next thing I want is a gem sweater.

Virgin Suicide

White Tent Spring/Summer 2009

Nothing is more beautiful than an innocent blush of shame. Nude skin showing through sheer fabrics. Female attraction in its most ingenuous form.

Die Verwandlung

Kitten T-Shirt Julia and Ben

Long time I fought. I used my claws. But I have to surrender. My inner pussycat prevailed. I have to accept the fact that I am a super cute kitten. It is just undeniable. Thanks Julia, a true kitten lover, for revealing the truth.

Moan & Groan

Artworks Marlene Dumas

It might be an art-historical crime but in Dumas' works I see the female, sexualized version of Francis Bacon. Distorted bodies in lustful pain. Vague and blunt at the same time.

This is for everyone who appreciates the pulchritude of a group of three. Threeways are the best way to go. And The Dreamers is the best theme related movie to watch.

Laissez Faire

Lovely ones, good luck for the shoot today. I'll be thinking of you and in my mind I can see beauty happen.

In Sync

Photo Stylesightings

I really fancy this old school, Laura Ashley meets the Netherlands, all-over print. Styled to perfection with chest hair respectively kitten mask and nice plateau heels.

Strong Arguments

Serious competition to our everlasting kitten love. Loyal and cuddly as Horst, the animal whisperer himself, a dog is man's best friend.

Sunday Thoughts

Photos Lina Scheynius

Being in bed is one of the most wonderful things in life. Especially when the light is sleeping next to you and makes you feel warm. Some episodes of Beverly Hills 90210 and the world seems perfect.


I could repeat myself and tell you what I love about these two looks, but I guess the pictures speak for themselves. Two beautiful archetypes of the L&H aesthetics catalogue.

The Von Trapp family went to an excursion to the rainbow.

Light Source

LCF Graduate Show 2009

The standards were high, the collections cohesive and well-thought-out. Each of them. No fashion school crap, just intelligence and consistency. Super women in mesh tights and fringe capes. Light blue creatures of purity. Layers of fur. Plateau heels. Lacer cut. Exaggerated red tubes craftsmanship. High-buttoned shirt dresses, nude leather waistcoats and porcelain collar tips. This must be love.

Prison Break

Attachment Fall/Winter 2009

Once again my attachment for Attachment. Kazuyuki Kumagai just does everything right. Dandyism with a gothic edge. Plus 90s artefacts like broad stripes and tie chains. Chapeau.

If I

"Hungry for life
And thirsty for the distant river
Like the scar of age
Written all over my face
The war is still raging inside of me
I still feel the chill
As I reveal my shame to you
I wear it like a tattoo"


Claudia, Naomi and Christy in bondage gear for Versace in 1992. This is perfection. The full dose of exuberant fashion tackiness. An iconic perfection that seems to be inexistent today.

Patrick Wolf - Vulture

Beauty and craziness. Innocence and lust.

Touch Yourself

Top Azzedine Alaïa
Pants Prada
Necklace Givenchy

The symbiosis of elements is just sublime. I love high pony tails, so do I admire shield-like bra tops. The look of a true heroine. Can she please come for my rescue and follow me everywhere?

Kitten Love XVI

Long time no Marcus Schenkenberg on this beautiful blog. Unforgivable. So this is my excuse.

Attachment Spring/Summer 2009

All I can say is that I love triangles. Tie pins and collar tips have been absent for too long now. Painfully long. Revived in geometric shapes, they bring back subtle glamour to menswear.

Haughty creatures turning their back on you, beware of their unreachable beauty. Wing endowed beings with peacock attitude. Too intimidating to face their front.

Until Death Tear Us Apart

A few minutes ago he passed away in the washing machine. My beloved Comme des Garcons sweater. My favourite peace of clothing. I never thought this would hurt so deeply. R.I.P.

A renowned fashion expert once said: One can never own enough Alaïa. And I have to add: Especially when it comes to shoes. This image incarnates pure feminity: fragile and ambitious.

Zoo Of Boredom

Body painting is the new activity for boring nights with friends. Just build a circle and get naked. Well at least your hands. Who can guess which animal I would be?

P.S.: Alternatively, play shadow theatre.

Stop Touching Me

Petar Petrov Fall/Winter 2009

The boxiness continues. And Lindsay Lohan would probably sing: "I'm just a little boxy. I like it how I like it when I like it. And that's how it is. Oh oh oh. Don't tell me no."

Carpet Ride

Design Wendy Plomp

Cardboard carpets, I have to say 'I die!'. So unpretentious, decent and adorably unpolished. I love the roughness and imagine it to be perfect in adding industrial coziness to my concrete floor phantasies.

The Truth

I have to make a confession: Honestly, I don't even like cats. Kitten images are just weirdly stuck in my head.
