Light And Darkness

Peachoo+Krejberg Spring/Summer 2010

While other collections (unuttered reference to Gareth Pugh's pale descendants of death) scare me, these soft silhouettes and geometric black & white prints just captured my heart.

Lad Musician Fall/Winter 2009

How beautiful. A triangle symphony. Pointy edged waistcoats and jackets creating zigzag layering. I'm quite tempted.

A Mockumentary

Hernández Cornet Spring/Summer 2010

Raw edged frills, unbleached toile cotton, printed crinkle effects. A design exercise that incorporates mock-ups and mishappenings as an undeniable and necessary part of the actual result. The word final does not exist. Instead, it recreates itself through garments that resemble unfinished sentences, accompanied by a light and apparitional question mark, dangerously wafting in the air.

One can never have enough of Grace Jones' grace. A strong body in artificially sculptured poses.

P.S.: The Eiffel Tower in the background is calling me.


Natascha Stolle Fall/Winter 2009

These tights. Wads of smoke ascending from the ground. Enlacing the leg, seducing the eye, conquering the heart.


Video stills from the first film by Collier Schorr for Tim Hamilton Spring/Summer 2010. Gym. Muscles. Sweat. Strong arms grasping a rope. Exhausted bodies, raw hands.

Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2010

The nearly embarrassing fact that I am looking at the collection in endless repetition leads to the inevitable conclusion that it was just breathtakingly amazing. Therefore, some more details to venerate the broken delicateness.

Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2010

The most elegant dysfunction. Broken, ripped, crinkled. Exploded volume, fluorescent glow, ruined texture. The highest level of felicitous risk taking. Nearly invisible.

Rue de Rivoli

Designs Madeleine Vionnet

I am counting the days. Until my heart will beat be in Paris again. I will taste Ladurée macaroons. I will smell the perfume of fashion editors. And I will behold the beauty of past and future fashion design.

Prada Spring/Summer 2010

Nothing is more important right now than Prada, haha. Of course we will have to wait for Jil Sander for a final judgement. But I like the transparency, the raw edges and the glossy surfaces.

Satyenkumar Spring/Summer 2010

After all the womenswear shows, we need some men! London finally gives us some testosterone - although in slightly soft and alleviated doses. Pastels and sheer are strong. Undeniably. And we love it.

It seems I may have discovered my adoration for crinkled objects. Evolving an image from the obvious to the mysterious. Every kink an additional layer of construction and composition.

Organic Proliferation Fight

Mark Fast Spring/Summer 2010 vs. Bracket fungus

It may appear pejorative to compare fashion with fungus but it is meant in the most beautiful way. Trust me.

Déjà Vu

Buttons. Worn by Horst. Shot by Kvannam Chu.

Cropped. Worn by Horst. Shot by Joachim Mueller-Ruchholtz.

Gold. Shown by Horst. Shot by Txema Yeste.

Little Horsti proves the right intuition. One day presented or worn by the Kitten Lover himself, next day part of a fashion spread. Of course this is pure coincidence, but let me believe in my extrasensory powers.

Frame Work

Artworks Nigel Tomm

Nigel Tomm himself describes his work as Most Famous & Super Popular Art. His interpretations of high-gloss photographs are raw and pitiless. Very ironic and also very superficial. Crunched and then pressed into digital squares to maintain the original shape. Destruction without destroying.
