La Récupération

Shirt Josef Lazo
Waistcoat Maison Martin Margiela
Jacket Acne
Jeans Cheap Monday
Briefs Yves Saint Laurent
Brooch Vintage

One of my recent Paris outfits. Perfectly combining my most favourite pieces: A long see-through dress shirt, a vintage brooch, a skinny jacket, a MMM waistcoat. Each garment consummately indicating and describing who I am.

Hero Worship

Part 10: Tom Nicon

Horst is in love. Again. This time it is serious. How incredibly beautiful is he? The big question is now: How can I get hold of him and rope him into my universe.

Gaspard Yurkievich Spring/Summer 2009

I hate the never-ending snow. At the same time I feel the strong longing for whiteness. But in the context of summer and boys in shorts and tanks. Golden headbands are allowed.

Jil Sander Fall/Winter 2009

Lately, I've been asked what kind of dress would characterize me best. What dress would I pick if I were a woman. What dress would I dream of. And this is my choice. Minimal and severe but also complicated and allusively sexual.

The Spiral

Henrik Vibskov Fall/Winter 2010

Yes, we saw kilts. We saw elongated tops. We saw longjohn trousers. We saw naked hairy legs and knee-high socks. We saw consequence and re-invention.

Valentino Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2010

Just a few hours ago I confessed that I don't have mental access to the concept of Haute Couture. This being said, everything turned around when I saw Valentino. It is nothing but brilliant. And this should be the benchmark for all HC collections.

When I was leaving Paris behind and some Bundeswehr soldiers in camouflage uniforms borded the train, I realized I like militarism. In a certain sense.

Anaphylactic Reaction

Romain Kremer Fall/Winter 2010

Romain Kremer's vision evolves. Heading towards a strictly graphic translation of his conceptual approach to menswear. Purism and form gain impeccable strength, the outcome structured and severe. Needless to say that I am in love.

Le 24 Dimanche

4 days. Countless shows. With a little bit of melancholy I am looking back on endless love for Romain Kremer. Sheer longjohns and bed feathers at Zimmerli. A spectacular location at Wooyoungmi. Formal geometry at Songzio. Pear necklaces at Qasimi. And hippie movements at Paul Smith. Au revoir Paris.


Raf Simons Fall/Winter 2010

It has been the fulfillment of my dreams to attend a Raf Simons show. And the adrenaline and strong inner contentedness made this experience incommensurable. The raw genetics of an early Raf clashed with the highly-constructed now. Accompanied by hardcore techno beats. Suits and bomber jackets. Wrapped knitted dresses. I lost my virginity.

Le 23 Samedi

A dismal and beautiful day. Signature perfection at Raf Simons. Layered suits à la Sybille Walter at Damir Doma. Fuzzy coziness at Ute Ploier. The Dreamers' bohème aestethics at Miharayasuhiro. Incognito make-up and concept art at Boris Bidjan Saberi.
