Bringing a Burberry coat to London feels like carrying coals to Newcastle. But it’s also a confirmation that your money was well spent. Once again you know why a good trenchcoat is not only a fashion item but a well designed and developed survival item. And you know why it was invented in London. Springtime … Continue Reading

You might have noticed by now that I have a thing for androgynous women. I just think it’s supercool and sexy when a woman is dressed in men’s clothes. Not in a ‘Wall Street’ kind of style, like women in tailored business suits and sprayed-to-death hair or any kind half-baked ‘boyfriend’-look with high heels. NO … Continue Reading

Again we have a man wearing a backpack on this blog. Gunnar was first, now Joel. Munich and London. I guess we can start calling it a ‘European trend in menswear’! It takes more than two to ascertain a trend? Don’t be so fussy. If those two have an ocean between them, they have never … Continue Reading

First of all: Happy, marvellous New Year 2014! Any New Year’s resolutions? Except of the usual ones like ‘no more crisps in front of the TV’ or ‘less TV, more books (it’s harder to eat when you read anyway)’? I have a recommendation for you. It’s my one resolution I have worked on through the … Continue Reading


OK, we covered the ‘fun Christmas party with friends’-outfit, a little ritz, a little glitz, a pretty christmas jumper and you’re all set. But what if it’s a more ‘formal’ event? An office Christmas party? You don’t want to egg-nogg yourself out while wearing your shortest sequinned micro mini or your christmas tinsel dress – … Continue Reading

*159 The Aga-Tomlins

Quite honestly – I didn’t think this picture would happen. The previous evening had been long, boozy and very pleasant (we hadn’t seen each other in a while), but Feli and Joel had promised me anyway to get the chance to take a family portrait the next morning before the boys would be off to … Continue Reading

I once had a fashion epiphany. It happened a few years back when I was still living in London.I sat in a cafe on South Molton Street when Isabella Blow walked past me and changed my view on fashion for good. In bright daylight she floated along like a creature from a another world wearing … Continue Reading

*78 The Aga-Tomlins

The way the Aga Tomlins are dressed is hard to describe. It could easily be mistaken for a ‘retro’ sort of look, the trendy ‘I-like-to-buy- my-stuff-in-a-vintage-store’-style. But take a closer look: There is a little bit of 70s, a hint of ‘little house in the prairie’, a spoonful of turn of the century, a bit … Continue Reading

Alexander McQueen made the fashion world a more interesting and inspiring place – he is missed. R.I.P. (Thank you, Daniel for this beautiful and sad portrait, taken in his studio 5 years ago) SEE OTHER STYLE ICONS…

*65 The Aga-Tomlins

When you enter Joel Tomlin’s studio in east London you enter his very own world. It’s an almost ancient and a bit mystical world filled with small sculptures and figurines, sketches, drawings and paintings all over the place but most of all it’s a world of soft, beautiful and soothing colours. Colours that make you … Continue Reading
