Vintage @ VOODOO MARKET #3

Posted in Fashion by strytllng on June 23, 2011

Mayflower Vintage is a brand that only recently entered the world of internet but has been in the works for the last few years as Luka May, it’s founder, DJ and aspiring singer/songwriter, has been a big fan of all things vintage since many years.

Collecting vintage fashion has become more than just a personal pleasure as it is slowly becoming a big part of his work. As a DJ he has the opportunity to express his vintage glamour aspirations, but he is also trying to bring it into the everyday life.
You can always arrange a visit to his home to see what vintage treasures he is hiding behind his 4-or-so walls.

 

LeMagass is a Berlin-based one-man company. The label is as multifacetted as is his owner, Mavin.
Being half polish, half guinean it’s safe to say that Mavin is the essence of the modern multicultured Metropole, or better yet: Afropole.

His Vintage-stand carries crazy multicolour 80′s bike-spandex as well as ultra old leather-bags/Gobelin-purses and belts from your grand-grannies’ cool emancipated friend from the 20′s. Inbetween all this you can find sunglasses, hats, shoes and T-Shirts (often with politically incorrect, sleazy slogans-something you don’t want your parents to see you wearing)

I don’t think I’ll have have enough bags or sunglasses.

See you on the 2nd July @ VOODOO MARKET in Berlin!

Under Her Spell

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on April 5, 2011



Why don’t we all live in Australia or Southern California, I am asking? Because it would ruin the fun of looking forward towards Summer. My city had a very hot preview this weekend of what the favorite season will be like. The sun came out for two days and had everyone walking in shorts, practising their laissez-faire boho mood. Isn’t it striking how very different the vibe of a hectic city can be as soon as the sun is out and the temperatures are up? It all changes with a few rays of light – turning dark faces into bright relaxation.

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.

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).

To Market, To Market – Milan Vintage

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on October 5, 2010

What looks to be a tiny part of Milan turns into the biggest antique- and fleamarket in Milan.  Once a month, the canal in the south-west of the city turns into the biggest gathering of style and presentation.

People know I am THE vintage girl and I wouldn’t want to miss this opportunity for any Missoni fashion show in the world. I put on my Aigner silk skirt, which I bought two years ago and the Aigner bag and combined them with an American Apparel cotton shirt and a hat that used to belong to someone in a former life. Black patent leather Oxfords were in order to keep me on my feet all day long.

The market was amazing. They had pretty much everything one could imagine. From mini Biedermeier furniture to 70s glasses, fake and real designerbags to the best jewelry selection I had seen so far – even dogs were carried in “puppy purses” at this outstanding “go see”. (Which I thought the most ridiculous thing one could do to a living being).

By the end of the day my feet hurt and I didn’t dare to buy much. Except for a few, the sellers were all pros and demanded exceptionally high prices for the goods. The most fun is browsing through the beauty of past times anyways, right?
