One night with Busy P. + Mr. Marshall

Posted in Fashion Week by strytllng on January 31, 2011

This little Ed Banger chick, had the most fun (bad cold afterwards included) during Fashion Week Berlin at the Marshall Headphones Lounge while Busy P. (Mister Ed Banger Records) was on the turntables. A few lucky ones were invited to enjoy his very private DJ set.

While dancing away a storm and trying to find the right words to get a picture with Busy P., I couldn’t believe my luck as I also got the best gift from Silk Relations: The Marshall Headphones. My favorite accessory these days. I cannot believe I am the owner of these new babies, which are sold out already. Their sound is a stressless and an ear-friendly enjoyment, they fold into the tiniest purse and let’s face it: the design is a ‘cannot-do-wrong’ classic.

The Cobrasnake has a few picture from the party which you can see here.

Before I’ll you’ll get an overdose of fashion, listen to this for a good start into the day. It doesn’t come as a surprise that I love this song. The sound is upbeat with dramatic dancefloor breaks and on top of it all there is THE PIANO. What can I say? I’m a piano lover.


Little Red Riding Hood, When Did You Grow Up So Fast?

Posted in Fashion Week by strytllng on January 19, 2011

“Once. In the village of nowhere. I was a girl. The most beautiful girl you could ever imagine. Red was my hair. Red like my grandmother’s unreasonable love. Red ’cause she used to color my hair. Damn, I was so fucking beautiful. Everybody called me “little red head”

with these words, the show installation of the French-German newcomer label AUGUSTIN TEBOUL  opened in an unfinished, rough wing at the Soho House Berlin. The message was clear – even though the models moved in delicate manners on antique sofas (as if taken out of a French brothel scene around the turn of the century) this presentation would be all about dark sophisticated romance. The classic white boudoir theme and renaissance beau ideal of very pale skin and red hair met spiderweb knits, black lace and leather. The designs reminded me a tiny bit of Mark Fasts’ latest collection but au contraire to Mr. Fast, these two young designers cut out the cuteness from the usually “white-&-innocence-associated” lace and spiderknit by “painting” their entire collection literally in black. For even further reference to the dark tones of romance, the models would play with the doppelganger-motif, imagining to pose in front of mirrors, stressing the uncanny yet fascinatingly private atmosphere their scenery provided.

As you can see I loved it all – the presentation as well as the clothes, which I would like to call my own. Well, maybe some pieces would better remain privately worn while others call for great parties – or Fashion Weeks.



Fashion Week Berlin ::: What They Wear

Posted in Fashion Week by strytllng on January 19, 2011

So here is a first impression of your favorite fashion victim from inside the tent where I saw the opening show of A.F. Vandevorst at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2011. It was way too early for fashion. I used to live right around the corner of Bebelplatz, where the tent is located. Instead, I had to take two busses and it took me 40minutes from door to tent.

Later this day, I will see Augustin Teboul at the Soho House and attend the Happy Store Opening at Torstrasse.

You can take the girl out of Mitte but Mitte will remain a part of this girl.

Recap ::: Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2011

Fashion Week is here and I wanted to share some impressions from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in July 2010 to get you warmed-up. Are you in the mood for Fashion Week season 2011 yet? With the moving and all I haven’t had the time to prepare much. I have some appointments and invitations but my head is still unfolding boxes and putting together the furniture. Actually, it is a good way to clear my mind. The kick-off for me is tomorrow morning at Belgian designer A.F.Vandevorst’s show. If I will ever find my equipment, I will report back ASAP.

WUNDERVOLL ::: Summer Rain On Your Skin

Posted in Lookbook by strytllng on January 13, 2011

Not many things can surprise this fashionette especially not when it comes to lingerie. We all know the leopard-printed knickers, black-laced bras and unoriginal shapes in which everything that’s worn underneath, comes in. (I won’t even go into further detail about awful materials and changing shapes after the first contact with the washing machine.) Underwear that makes you feel in a way, that makes you appearance shine without being seen can only mean one thing:

It feels like a warm shower after a day of freezing in soaking wet clothes – BEAUTIFUL COMFORT

I have had one of these moments when I tried on my first piece from Berlin-based lingerie label WUNDERVOLL. The name pretty much says it all – it is wonderful. The softest silk fuses with your skin. The design is exactly what is needed: retro shapes and soft colors. If you get a chance to dip your bodies in these babies, please do so. This luxury label is an investment without regrets. WUNDERVOLL is not about trying to impress anybody else but about the best feeling lingerie could provide for you and only Y.O.U.

WUNDERVOLL will showcase their new collection during Berlin Fashion Week next week at Rosa-Luxemburg-Strasse 22, Berlin Mitte, 16-21 JANUARY 2011 (professionals only).
