Desired #7

Trompe l'œil door wallpaper Maison Martin Margiela

If everything happens as planned, I would love to expand my home with further spacious, inexistent rooms. Surrounding myself with the secrets and possibilities of a newly created endless space.

Desired #6

Multi-strap Ankle Boots Ann Demeulemeester

Lately, I love any shoe with excessive detailing. Multi-strapped, multi-laced, multi-embellished. Heavy foot gear devoted to the useless decoration, the Antikraft in a minimalist wardrobe.

Desired #5

Glass Carafe Ittala

Everyone who has watched The Housemaid will understand why it is a necessity to use a decanter when enjoying a bottle of red wine. Its meaning lies within the word itself: decanter, a guide to decadence.

Desired #4

Reptile Briefcase Comme des Garçons

Although the concept of having a briefcase attracts me, I haven't found the exact purpose for it yet. Their appearance just causes an instant urge to hold, touch and own them. Maybe someone could help me out.

Desired #3

Metal Shelf Habitat

For my forensic psychiatric kitchen experiments, proper equipment is utmost crucial. The person who accomplishes its delivery to my future home will be invited to witness my daily cooking routine wearing a water-repellent PVC apron.

Desired #2

A Brief History of Curating Hans Ulrich Obrist

In order to prepare for my follow-up career identity, I need to indulge in the lines, columns and meanings of this publication. Therefore, it is a very supportive and reasonable gift idea.

Desired #1

Asymmetric Sweater Lanvin

Time for the annual and holy Horst Christmas wishlist. It is not only meant as a vague indication for anyone feeling close or wanting to feel close, it is also a blunt commandment. Please me.

Collage and text Horst

My contribution to a collaborative art publication that may never become reality: PARFUM Mag. Initiated by Victor Antonio, the surrealist tradition of cadavre exquis became alive once again. For my part, I created a fake perfume advertisement poem.

Artworks & Portrait Victor Antonio

The most genius, mesmerizing and capricious beings often leave us too early, too soon. I am happy to have met this wonderful person and being virtually connected through late night talks, the exchange of surrealist poems and visionary thoughts.

The Craft

1. Comme des Garçons Spring/Summer 2012
2. Issey Miyake Spring/Summer 2004
3. Arena Homme + No. 20 Autumn/Winter 2003
4. Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2008

From the forbidden love for tribal to the antithetic affection for graffiti. In particular its appearance aside concrete walls and public transport. And how long have we been waiting. Who is going to follow?

A photo booth tribute: John Galliano

Snakeskin trousers & iPad case John Galliano

Printed versus digital media. The written word. The praise, the critique, the sentence. The infamous Gazette print, the Gothic letter G. And when all whisper has ceased, iconic collections remain.

1. Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2012
2. Helmut Lang Halloween T-Shirt 2003

A tribute by Raf to Helmut. Bold letters indicating the product's exact chronological and cultural context. A numeric catalogue entry. I want every single piece from that collection.

Triple Effect

Versace vs. Giuliano Fujiwara

Continuous partial attention (CPA) is the process of paying simultaneous attention to a number of sources of incoming information, but at a superficial level. It usually involves skimming the surface of the incoming data, picking out the relevant details, and moving on to the next stream.

A Short History Of Stripes In Popular Culture III

1. Véronique Branquinho Spring/Summer 2004
2. João Figueiredo Sensual Hollow
3. Frida Kahlo The Broken Column

The masochistic atripe: A darker and more vague addition to our series based on the idea of anatomic fragmentation. Here, the stripe becomes a subtle reference to self-abandonment.

Horst Decoration, Issue 5

1. Marble chair Marc Newson, Prickly Lamp Lucy McRae
2. Plexiglass table Pierre Cardin, Painting Alberto Abate
3. Chain carpet Adrien Rovero

Welcome to my irrational dream home. Where gravitation is inexistent and proportions are abandoned. A 4-dimensional place occupied by flying chain rugs and supersized furniture insects. Visitors become surrealist paintings once they find themselves lost within the myriad corridors and staircases.

Girl Panic

Duran Duran - Girl Panic! 2011

Fashion with a capital F. Hardcore product placement. Schizophrenic supermodels. Jonas Åkerlund has combined the über-kitsch and mega-decadent. Pop. And everything is alright.
