Awareness Campaign

Top Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2011
Bottom Unknown editorial, Smoking spoils your looks

As a non-smoker myself, I can speak with pure conscience and vehemently support a crispy clean 'all white, no nicotine' policy. So does Alexander Wang who banned and quoted the cigarette as hair clip.

Nina Donis Fall/Winter 2011

Remotely to be described as post-minimalist, in remembrance of a genius known as Helmut Lang. Containing all we'd have expected from the master himself. Maybe just subconsciously but nonetheless perfect.

Top Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011
Bottom Lanvin Spring/Summer 2011

A white, partly sheer leopard print shirt. Givenchy. A black multi-pocket, zip-strap utility bag. Lanvin. Currently on my wishlist. I like the temporary illusion of ownership.

Preserved Latex Fight

Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2011 vs. Keith Sonnier

Never getting tired of posting Raf Simons pieces. This time put together with a rather unwearable favourite: Keith Sonnier. Both depicting one common matter. Latex it is. The material I wanna feel on my skin.

Bare Back

1. Unknown & Alexander Calder, Untitled, 1953
2. Unknown & Jackson Pollock, Lavender Mist, 1950
3. Pietro Franch Graduate Collection & Eduardo Chillida, Untitled, 1996

Usually, Horst can only be seen wearing black. So adding another non-colour to his non-colour range is a huge achievement. And just between us girls: he's enjoying it. All-nude.

Yohji Yamamoto Spring/Summer 2004

A men's collection that didn't contain any kind of regular trousers. Instead, almost transparent linnen skirts. The world already was perfect for a while in 2004. Therefore, I always enjoy seeing Islamic men wearing galabia.

Tea Time

1. Bernhard Willhelm Fall/Winter 2005
2. Meissen porcelain teapot, Bartholomaus Seuter workshop, 1725–1730

More postmodern insanity. Meissen versus Berhnard Willhelm. Classicism versus exotism. The ostentatious, anti-functional porcelain object re-staged with painted human bodies. Decadence.

Rippchen & Kraut II

Marios Schwab Fall/Winter 2011

A man in lederhosen is ideally accompanied by a woman in Marios Schwab. His Austrain heart establishing the post-modernist dirndl. The geared-up maid satisfying our SM fantasies.

Haxen & Bier

Bernhard Willhelm Spring/Summer 2007

The Dada weekend continues. And what is more German and Dada for a man to wear than lederhosen. Thanks to Bernhard this item has survived in our consciousness. The only question remaining is: what kind shall I wear?

Oyp Gnuoy Ij

Ji Young Pyo Graduate Collection

Being all Dada. Following yesterday's view on Hugo Ball, the absurdity of clothing is countered with seriousness. Hiding one's scoffing laugh behind an anonymous shield.

Good to see that my fashion sense was already fairly developed as a child. Dressing in cardboard boxes and toilet paper rolls. More people should see him as a role model and follow this high fashion example.

If life just was a Guccci by Testino campaign. Luckily, Prada brought back the glitter. And hopfully Shirtology will return and bring back the thong. Who's gonna wear it for me?

The Belgian Patient

Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2011

Although TLC proclaimed No Scrubs in 1999, we'll suspend this rule for 2011. Encouraging every man to dress in an open-back nightshirt. For reference see also Prada's Emergency Room and Matías Uris.

Complication & Abstraction

Artworks Joan Miró

Chaos and its antithesis. A few and a million strokes. Either I am confused. Or enlighted. But I am slowly finding access to the genius of waiting room art. What reminds me to book a dentist appointment.

Mutant Engineering II

One day, aliens will save the human race from extinction. They will collect and exhibit our precious relicts of art and culture. And put us in cute little outdoor parks. Women will collect solar energy and men will filter the water.
