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

*257 On Death

I am blessed. My cousin has died. And I had the chance say good-bye for 23 month. She was diagnosed with a lethal brain tumor and passed away three month ago. Actually I don’t know when she really left us since the tumor slowly took over more and more of her and what was left … 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

Black leather triggers associations. What kind of association depends on your history, the level of uptightness, the region you come from and various other facts that define your character and the phantasies you develop. While someone from a more rural area thinks of macho motorcycle clubs or beer-soaked Heavy Metal Discos, the suburban mind might … Continue Reading

*253 Julia X Story of my Shirt

‘Pick a piece with a story’ – that’s what Alex from the blog ‘Story of my Shirt’asked me when we had just decided to do a project together. It should be a piece from my wardrobe that means something special to me. Tough call. I have countless clothes that I found in little vintage shops … Continue Reading

If you are male you have fashion restrictions. At least if you want to blend in. No skirts, no high heels, no lipstick. To name just a few things a man is not expected to wear in public if he doesn’t want to be stared at. The level of tolerated ‘flamboyance’ variies from country to … Continue Reading

First post in 2017. Happy New Year, dear friends. New year, new chance, new resolutions, new colours. Why not start the year with something as simple and ordinary as a new haircolour? All the rest will follow. It might transform you into the new self you are aiming to be in 2017. Go from brown … Continue Reading

What are clothes good for? Covering your nakedness. Keeping you warm, sure. Protecting you? Attracting other people? Keeping them off? Accentuating your best physical features? Enhancing your personality? Creating a new one? Maybe all of the above is accurate. Or none (except of the covering part). ‘You should buy clothes because of how they make … Continue Reading

*Used and Unique – Camel Coat

It was in Paris. I was with my friend Dodo and we sat outside a very French, very traditional bistro enjoying the last bit of autumn sun – when this woman walked in. We both turned our heads, conversation stalling. She was not a celebrity nor was she particularly beautiful (in fact, I can’t really … Continue Reading

A few days back I flipped through Elle Magazine and got stuck at the Edidtor’s letter singing the praises of Paris and Parisian women. ‘How can you not love Paris and adore Parisian women, which are by far the chicest and coolest and most elegant….’ that pretty much sums up the content. I do not … Continue Reading
