Morning Theme

If you found yourself in an underwater situation of any kind this morning – this is our theme.

My heating broke down turning parts of our flat into a pool. Can you beat that?

Lookbook ::: Maison Scotch – London meets Paris

Posted in Lookbook by strytllng on November 6, 2011

Does anyone remember those oversized windbreaker jackets in white/red/blue back in the days when East 17 had a song or two in the charts? No? Well I do because my older brother had one of these Scotch & Soda IT-Jackets and I thought it to be a classic and kept it in the back of my closet (Where it still is.).

To my surprise, the same brand had opened up a store during Fashion Week in the summer 2011 in Berlin Mitte and I liked what I saw. The Dutch label has found a nice mix of what I can only describe as “A French girl goes to London.” The latest collection from the premium label Maison Scotch is characterized through: Boyish elements meet French chic – a vintage inspired layed back attitude is combined with glamour elements.

Can you believe the model was allowed to smile for this lookbook?

Must See

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on November 1, 2011

The opening of “My Quiet of Gold” was my first time in Gestalten Space, a concept loft offering beautiful Gestalten books, design objects and home to an exhibition area. If you are around Berlin Mitte – the exhibition, My Quiet of Gold is a must – a powerful story told through staged photographs combined with painting. I was touched. I was lost in thoughts when looking at the art-work.  Here is the official description:

My Quiet of Gold by Cooper & Gorfer, a striking photographic journey documenting the stories of love, sorrow, and betrayal from rural Kyrgyzstan.

The artist duo Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer work at the intersection of contemporary photography with painting of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Their photographic installations move fluidly between reality and imagination, technical and artistic interpretation, and collective myth and personal narrative.

For their exhibition My Quiet of Gold, Cooper and Gorfer traveled to the rural areas of Kyrgyzstan to collect sagas and stories in conversations and interviews with local inhabitants. Out of these tales, the duo created striking photographic portraits that go far beyond mere documentation to tell and visually interpret romantic-melancholy stories in completely new and non-linear ways.

The exhibition can be visited during opening hours until 27th November at Gestalten Space, Sophie-Gips-Höfe, Sophienstraße 21, 10178 Berlin.

Entrance: free
