Matching different sorts of checks has easily become my latest obsession – but this is so good, it is almost obscene!  Note to self: look out for vintage Kenzo.

Hien Le ::: SS 2012

Posted in Fashion Week, Uncategorized by strytllng on July 29, 2011


Hien Le’s first show on the catwalk at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin can only be called a huge success. From the unisex concept of material and coloring for his men and women line, Hien Le made my Fashion Week-tired eyes glow with joy again. Not only am I in love with his effortless tailoring and the minimalistic approach which are his signature look but the designer born in Laos dedicated this collection to his grandfather, a tailor himself during French-colonial, Laos. This Berlin fashion genius has the art of a perfect dress in his genes, arranges colors perfectly without imitating trends and integrates the history of his family into this beautiful collection. I have to applaud Hien Le for creating a Spring Summer 2012 collection that has a lot of soul – something the industry needs so desperately.

Allow me a very personal note: I met Hien Le a little over a year ago when he presented his collection at Collect Showroom. He is the nicest designer I ever met. When I ran into him at the Wood Wood show on Thursday, he was the epitome of calm (imagine you are presenting just two days later  for the first time in front of a big audience) and asked me if I am coming to see his show. Hien was so sweet as to remember me. VERY nice, talented & skilled and loving his grandparents – WOW. (All of my friends know my grandma is my very favorite.) That’s exactly why I named him one of my favorite designers from Berlin in my interview with ELLE.fr right before his show. (Just look at those perfect shorts!)

Remember this name as you will read more about him in the big papers: HIEN LE

Bloggers + Accessories

Lieb und Teuer

Zauberhafte Elv

The Urban Maiden

When Fashion Bloggers meet at a Fashion-Blogger-Meeting and it’s THAT special week, you won’t find them wearing the ordinary outfit lend by a designer for a four-digit retail price. Bloggers, as I have noticed on myself this season, are the creative kind and go for extraordinary accessories of any kind. We all know how embarrassing it can be to find out somebody else is wearing the same mass-produced retailer you do. Right?!

All You Need Is…

Posted in Fashion Week by strytllng on July 10, 2011

…in that little purse of yours. What else does a blogette need during Fashion Week? Cosmetic items, business cards, sunglasses wallet, pen + moleskin, smartphone with all invitations in the email-account and a camera in hand.

What came handy to you this season? What else do I need next season?

DIY @ Bread & Butter

Posted in Fashion, Fashion Week by strytllng on July 4, 2011

I am all in the DIY mood these days and if you happen to be at Bread&Butter in Berlin this week – this seems to be an interesting place to go. Artists and stylists like Superblast, Anton Unai and Linda Ehrl will be working their magic on denim.

Where: MAVI (Denim Base, D 27)
When: July 6th-8th; 10-18pm

WOOD WOOD coming to Berlin Fashion Week

Posted in Fashion Week, Video by strytllng on June 21, 2011

Danish streetwear superstars, WOOD WOOD, have announced to do their first show ever on the catwalk at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin (the first week of July). Now let’s hope I can get that invitation I need to see this highly anticipated show in the tent.

Neon.Minimalism.Love

Posted in Fashion Week by strytllng on March 14, 2011

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.
