Yes, sort of. And no, because it’s about finding out what the essence of a person’s individual
style really is. This blog is supposed to be a long term project to make this essence visible.
It is not about about ‘the look of the season’, it’s about the every day style of a few chosen
people, whose way of dressing I find very special (I know most of them for quite some time).
You will see the same faces over and over again.
Every single one gets a picture gallery on my ‘meet..’ site. That way you can get each model’s
review from the very first to the most recent photograph (just the ‘icons’ site is different,
it shows individual pictures of people who became style icons – at least to me they are).
My models live in London and Paris, Munich, Berlin or L.A, that’s why some of them get posted
more fequently and some a little less.
When I take their picture I ask them to come as they are – I don’t want them to dress up for me.
Each photograph is taken on a different day.
So meet my models, one by one, follow them for a while, a few days first, then after a few month
you will meet them again and again.
See how they change with the seasons, grow a beard, shave it off again, change their haircolor,
get skinnier or bigger, finally get older over the years. What they all have in common is their
very intuitive way of dressing, they know their bodies quite well, they know what suits them
- and they just love to dress.
Best example is the Queen of knits and stripes: Sonia Rykiel, a role model of style. Her hair, her
attitude and being able to do stripes for decades without being boring or uninspired
– chapeau, Madame Rykiel!
