My infinite love for the mosaic artist began 3 years ago while spending some time in Paris. I couldn’t stop documenting his art work in the streets of the French capital and even bought a small canvas copy to take home with me. The love for Space Invader’s work soon inspired my work as a communication consultant and evolved into an award-winning online project for one of the big players in sportswear, juxtaposing pleasure with the necessary. Offline, I continued to search for his work on my visits to Paris, infecting friends with the fever – but no flame would ever be hotter than mine was for the small colorful tiles that mean the world to me.

Yesterday, a friend of mine gifted me with this unique piece of accessory – making me a cheerleader for a Springlovin’. “I found it in Thailand and it made me think of you.” The fact, that I was figuratively with her in South-East Asia by the sight of the little monster made the day as perfect as can be. You know, it’s just as they say: Good things come in small portions.

Now, I’ll have something to remember you Miss H.!!! Thank U L.O.V.E.

WUNDERVOLL ::: Spring Summer 2011

Posted in Lookbook by strytllng on March 17, 2011

Finally…the Spring Summer collection 2011 from WUNDERVOLL. After I had discovered the Winter 10-11 collection for myself, the new light-as-air underwear collection in earth tones doesn’t disappoint either. The latest collection is following up perfectly with the WUNDERVOLL typical signature design of silk-jersey lingerie with curved seams and retro-sporty cuts.

Hot summer nights? Cool skin luxury.

If you’ve been following Streetstyle blogs during this Fashion Week season, you’ll have noticed the trend of megawatt colors outside the runwayshows. The trend seems to be going towards big accessories, structures and patterns but the combination of flashy colors, flashy design and overaccessorized fashionistas is just not my cup of tea. I prefer the clean-cut design accentuated with some color – a style that won’t stress your visual sense. In fact, the minimalist-neon combination soothes the overfashioned brain like homemade lemonade on one of these first hot Spring days.

FINALLY!!!! New trainers. (Model: MIZUNO Wave Inspire)

 

These past few weeks I have literally been running my a$§ off – not because Spring is approaching but because a dear friend of mine asked me to run the half marathon with her. (Yes, I don’t say no to a friend’s request.) The training has been hard in the beginning –  running with outdated worn-out trainers in freezing -8°C or fighting sickness. But things do come together in the end, they say, if you’re working hard enough. My body slowly adapts to the torture of 2 hours of running, the asphalt becomes a familiar friend and the temperatures are headed towards milder numbers. All that sweat and preparation finally pays off so a thank you to my feet was overdue.

I had my feet and running style analysed today and went home with the silver-neongreen Mizuno trainers you see above. They are light as air and should give me an extra boost of motivation in these final 3 weeks of training. I can hardly wait for our first time as a team – hitting the streets together.

 

Sightseeing or torture?

I enclosed the route I’ll be running on the 3rd April in Berlin. The route will lead us from the center of East-Berlin to the center of West-Berlin and back. It could be beautiful passing all those sights and parks if only there wasn’t the distance of 21km to complete successfully.

…and this is why fashion campaigns need music. Just like the Vanessa Bruno + Lou Doillon lookbook videos, Prada found the perfect music partner in Ratatat. There is no need to look at the individual looks to notice that the Spring Summer 2011 collection is all about a wild energetic mix with minimalist shapes and bold colors with invigorating big, big, big – over the top – stripes. Alongside the vivacious music, this fashion video equals fashion happiness that should not be taken too serious.

Don’t Kill The Messenger

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 2, 2011

Yes, this is one of these girly posts where I sigh about things I want but don’t need to survive in this world.

99% of you may have the same morning routine: wake up – get up – start the computer – shower/dress/breakfast – check emails. So it happened this morning. I actually looked into my Urban Outfitters newsletter and got hooked on the babies above. Spring is approaching quickly and I have this urge for new members to join my wardrobe club. The dress looks enormously comfortable – unfortunately the shoes don’t. (But that’s not the criteria for gorgeous shoe shopping.) They are not meant to go to fashion week but will be of great use in the city this Summer.

 

Dear Urban Outfitters: stop sending me your selections – resisting your charm is simply killing me.
