I always wonder if there ever comes a time when I decide: ‘OK, now that’s the style I will stick to for the rest of my life’. What will that style be and how will I pick it? What kind of criteria does this style have to satisfy? When I was a kid I remember … Continue Reading

A man in a jumpsuit is either a plumber, a house painter or a forensic analyst. Or he’s about to jump off a plane with (hopefully) a parachute on his back. When you wear a jumpsuit you want to make sure that nothing from the outside gets in (paint, sullage) or vice versa (think of … Continue Reading

*265 Dodo or What’s wrong with black latex?

Let’s talk about black Latex. Or better. Write down the first thing that crosses your mind when I say ‘Latex’. OK. I think, I don’t want to know. What I see when I think about this shiniest of all fashion materials is the challenge. The challenge of not meeting the expectations and of not making … Continue Reading

*264 Julia on World Women’s Day

‘World Women’s Day – does that mean we have one day of the year for us and the rest is for men?’ that’s what Jovana asked me today. Hm, good question, kind of the concept of mother’s day, one day of sleeping in and getting breakfast in bed as opposed to 364 days of cleaning … Continue Reading

Good style doesn’t come for free. If you are thinking about Birkin Bags and luxury labels now I can stop you right there. That’s not what I am talking about. Beautiful clothes don’t necessarily have to cost a lot of money (and you cannot buy good style anyway). Sure, if you have a stack of … Continue Reading

*262 Dodo

You know – one of those days, when you don’t feel your best. You don’t want to stick out from the crowd but being invisible would make it even worse. You want to dress comfortable but not shapeless, casual but not sloppy. You need an outfit that is sort of an armour to the world … Continue Reading

‘I shop therefore I am’ – That’s a statement that’s usually used in a consumer critical context or as a slightly provocative/confessional headline in women’s magazines. But it’s always meant ironical. Because it’s the epitome of superficiality put in one sentence. I actually think it’s a true sentence. Let’s look at it step by step: … Continue Reading

*260 Jovana

Still halten (Holding still) – that’s not Jovana’s thing. Constantly in motion, if not physically than at least mentally. A restless mind, keen on changes and challenges. She questions gender clichés relentlessly with every artform that she choses as a tool. And there are many thereof. Short films, video clips, writing and not to forget … Continue Reading

I was 14 years old when I started dying my hair for the first time. Bleaching, to be more precise. All through my childhood my hair had been a light blond but in puberty the blond gradually faded into the sort of mouse colour that nobody likes. I wore it short so I didn’t even … Continue Reading

Opinions are rather devided about the pageboy cut. I think I am not exaggerating when I say that roughly 99,9 % of all men take quite a dislike to it whereas most women think it’s super cute and cool (going back to my very personal experience when I had my hair cut pageboy style). Why … Continue Reading

*256 Tim X Story of my Shirt

There are pieces in your wardrobe that you don’t wear. They are out of fashion, they are torn or they simply don’t fit anymore (and you can’t face the fact that they never again will). Throw them out. Make yourself happy. Simplify your life. There are tons of self-help-happy-wardrobe authors who will nod enthusiastically now. … Continue Reading

A women in a black almost floor length shapeless dress is either a nun or from a muslim country that expects women to wear the hijab. Or she is an artist. How come that those species tend to hide their bodies more or less completely? A nun’s habit and a burka come from the same … Continue Reading
