Russki Chic

Gosha Rubchinskiy Spring/Summer 2009

I can't deny a certain fascination and attraction to the East European rude boy aesthetic. Shaved heads, bomber jackets, XL sweaters. Camouflage shorts, tennis socks and cans of beer. It might be the notion of innocence hiding behind the militaristic façade.

Office Encounter

Lanvin Spring/Summer 2010

I've just been confronted with a visor cap at work. Either the wearer perfectly understood to translate a high fashion trend into the everyday context or, more likely, he tries to make a statement detached from any fashion consciousness.

For this season, I strongly recommend to replace the men's handbag with a puppy.

Horst Outtakes

Horst for De:Bug #142

Horst continues in establishing photo booth in the contemporary mindset. He is the body, the gardener, the photographer, the stylist, the hair and make-up artist. The unification of everything you desire. The modern uróboros. Enjoy his latest spring story.

Screen Shoots

Photos Herbert Hofmann, Mary Scherpe

A first glimpse of 900g freshly printed Horst. The full series and unseen images to be revealed soon.

Isn't this image pairing symptomatic for Lynn & Horst? Traces of lipstick on a boy's shoulder. And a voluptuous lips sofa. I always loved this one. Soft kisses on your behind.

Disa Treutiger Designer's Nest 2010

It is impressive to watch a young talent evolving a signature design language. Disa Treutiger's pieces instantly stood out and caught my attention due to a subconscious feeling of familiarity. Soft mutations of structure and plasticity that enwind the female body.

Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 1989

Horst is growing old and therefore concluded to refine his serious appearance. With a classic pair of Giorgio Armani frames. The perfect complement to combed-back hair, suit and black turtleneck.

Replica II

Horst Meier vs. Meret Oppenheim

Briefs American Apparel
Blanket Model's own

Only little critical attention has been paid to Meret Oppenheim. And as Horst loves Dada, this replica intends to revive its naïve and deranged momentum. The mentally disturbed reflected via stylised profanity.

P.S.: If you would like to see your replica next Sunday, submit your artwork here and now.

Hero Worship

Part 12: Kelis

Only hardly can I elude her majesty. The last living real Buschfrau on earth. She arose from oblivion to claim back her kingdom. Armoured with a crispy voice and a blue-haired poodle. We are willing to give her everything she demands.

Three Drawings

Artworks Unknown, Jean Cocteau, Theo Firmo

Thin lines creating three-dimensionality. Implicating interactions of the male body and investigating on their physique. Reduced to a minimum of means while simultaneously creating layered meaning.

Merve Tuna Graduate Collection

Humanity is questioned and the monstrous idealised. Taxidermised animals serve as belt, stole, brooch and trousers. Cruel accessories opposed to soft and feminine materials. A macabre vision, yet perfectly executed.

While having a bowl of late afternoon cornflakes, I subconsciously thought of milk and, don't ask me why, Naomi Campbell. Well both doubtlessly belongs together. My advice: If you wanna be held by Naomi become a milk carton. Horst is kind enough to provide you with the template.

Studies of Constriction

Artworks Christo

I can't resist my current fixation to everything art-related. And in this case, the actual result feels very fashionable. Buildings wearing white canvas and ropes. Bondage and architecture.

Horst Meier vs. Wassily Kandinsky

T-Shirt Levi's Red
Shorts Acne Jeans
Reversed bomber jacket Second Hand
Knife IKEA
Stool Vitra

May I introduce to you a new Lynn & Horst series. Dispiteously facing world renowned examples of art history. The aesthetic discourse documented and re-interpreted with photo booth. This time: The highly discussed Wassily Kandinsky, equally associated with appreciation and disgust.

P.S.: If you would like Horst to challenge an artwork, submit your proposal here and now.

Archaeology II

So I bought an Egyptian porcelain elephant for my collection and a wig instead of a headpiece. If this does make any sense?
