Back to Vintage

Posted in Editorial, Fashion by strytllng on August 15, 2011

Apart from the fact that these photos from an editorial called “Crazy Chic” have been photoshopped to hell and back, they tell me one thing: the vintage look is not dead yet. Lately, I haven’t seen much of it on the streets and my visits to the vintage stores have been enormously rare – not to say: barely noticeable. My favorite store in Berlin? There is none but since I will be in Mitte today I might as well visit one of the hotspots in Friedrichstraße.

Wild Wild West

Posted in Editorial, Fashion by strytllng on June 5, 2011

You may have noticed by now that this season, my sense of styling has been inspired by old photographs of Native Americans from the 19th century. Not only do I love the prints and soft leather combined with an overload of accessories made of natural materials but it is also the inherent calmness that these pictures radiate. If you need some reminiscence, please search for photos of Crazy Horse or Sitting Bull. They send out a mystic energy of power and wisdom which captures my mind these days.

I found these photos from Numéro on SPELL and the Gypsy Collective. They are not quiet the originals but it’s a 21st century photoshoot in perfection. The series in sepia reflects the fashion trend inspired by the originals as close as a Burberry coat could come the North American continent and its rich history. The best photoshoots seem to be either made in heaven or in France.

In LOVE with LOVE ::: The Kooples

Posted in Editorial, Fashion, Lookbook by strytllng on May 12, 2011

This is how you do a corporate blog right. Choose a relevant topic and stick to it in order to create your identity. French fashionhouse, The Kooples, came out with their own blog a while ago and I L O V E it. No, literally…whether these two are a couple or not, but I am fascinated seeing new “episodes” of their lives while they subtly present The Kooples’ designs. The blog is like a reality editorial that never ends and is ever-expanding. They love, they fight and they remind me a lot of the destructive love only Kate & Pete had. Have you ever seen a better lookbook? Those other giants better take notes in image builiding. Ladies and Gentlemen: The Kooples blog.

Erin And The Knit

Posted in Editorial by strytllng on November 22, 2010

I’ve been knitting every second that I could these past days and I must say: I am improving with every stitch. A friend of mine supplied me with JALOUSE magazine where I saw these pictures of Erin Wasson sporting knitwear. I might not be ready to compete with these things but I got my hands on a hippie-esque shirt made with cotton yarn which I will show you as soon as it will be done.

Wishing you all a great week!

And When The Rain Begins To Fall…

Posted in Editorial by strytllng on September 16, 2010

If facing fall means channeling the cape- and babydoll style of the late 60s/ early 70s – I’M IN!

Oversized sweaters, ankle booty or knee-high socks, browns, yellows and burgundies,  short coats and capes shaping silhouettes of minidresses.

Editorial ::: Chloe Sevigny by Terry Richardson

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on September 9, 2010

Except for the fact that she went completely blank for purple magazine’s fall-winter 1011 – issue#14, I think Chloe Sevigny is probably one of the only few women that I can see clubbing all night without a care about her hair or make-up and still, or because of it, be naturally sexy-cool at any moment. Photographer was Terry Richardson – still surprised about the full nudity?

Editor’s note: It was my very own subjective opinion that the nude shot was left out because I think it is irrelevant to show and my very first association was: it’s not very aesthetic but instead made me associate Chloe’s pose and veil with violence.

Yes, there is a dream-like place on earth where we all wish we could be right now. This is mine. A crystal clear lake and a partially sunny wood. HEAVEN.

VOGUE Editorial ..::PLAGE PRIVÉE::..Bikini Couture

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on May 13, 2010

The beauty that is Natasha Poly presents minimalist fashion in my favorite editoral from Vogue PARIS May 2010 as seen through the lens of photography genius Mario Sorrenti. PLAGUE PRIVÉE presents Poly as the neo pin-up in 70s inspired sportive two and one-piece. Channeling Farah Fawcett in ‘Charlie’s Angels’ featuring Poly’s long athletic legs, the stylist should be congratulated on this glossy editorial styling. Knee-high classic sportssocks from American Apparel, aviator sunglasses, bright yellow and red wellies from Aigle, Chucks and the classic adidas Originals cult item the Stan Smith sneaker accessorize the beachwear ensembles. I must say: I WANT THEM ALL! And I want a vacation with beachblonde hair and the wave hair NOW! There are just some questions left for me to ask. Why is it impossible for women’s magazines to keep the clothes on their models? There shouldn’t be any need for sexual exploitation. After all it’s from women for women? And is the deep tan really back?

Natasha Poly surely looks like the perfect California beach babe and it is a true pleasure flipping the pages through this Vogue editorial.
Your Strytllr.

Picture of the day ::: Drew Barrymore’s inner animal

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 19, 2010

I spotted this photo of Drew Barrymore on BelleonEarth today and I  needed to reblog it immediately. I find this photo from POP Magazine extremely refreshing. No forced sexieness, no femme fatale, moderate make-up and Photoshop (I imagine). A woman being beautiful and able to laugh with and about herself. My feminine HERO.
