ELLE Calling ::: Or ::: Bursting With Pride

Posted in Fashion Week by strytllng on August 1, 2011

Read the rest of the interview on ELLE.fr (click on image above)

Here is something I NEVER do – showing my face on my blog. This little blogettte got stage fright (Don’t know when that came over me or how I could be a dancer for 20s years dancing on a gazillion stages.) but she is also bursting with pride. My interview with ELLE.fr – the online version of ELLE France – came out last week. I find myself in great company considering the other Berlin bigshots that have been interviewed for this portrait of Berlin fashion bloggers.

Read the rest of the interview/profile here and while you are at it, read the interviews with Mary Scherpe (Stil in Berlin), Jessica Weiss (Les Mads), Katja Hentschel (glamcanyon.) and Silke Wichert (STYLE proofed) as well. Can you believe it? Me side by side with these famous ladies. I am truly honored.

..:: String Theory @ Roberto Cavalli ::..

Posted in Fashion Week, Lookbook by strytllng on September 30, 2010

It was my last day in Milan and probably the most exciting…but let’s go back to my arrival for the whole picture.

I had thought about fashion show delays while standing in the tram on my very first day in Milan. While I was thinking about the trouble most designers go through waiting for Anna Wintour who is stuck in Milan’s traffic jam, a car door opens next to me and Anna herself jumps out of the car to avoid the traffic by WALKING to the Fendi show in her heels. My mind power sort of overcame me at that particular moment let alone the walk in killer heels to make the show is nothing you would expect her to do according to the myths surrounding her figure – but wait until you hear what my crazy mind did to me 3 days later.

It is the night before the big Cavalli show and dreaming that she kidnapped and now forced me to be her personal assistant to her children and herself, awoke me with cold sweat. I took a quick shower and an even quicker beauty routine to prepare my interviews to be made with the front row guests and the maestro himself at Roberto Cavalli’s 40th anniversary runway show in the Arco della Pace at Piazza Sempione. We had been very late for a press team and just as we took our stand with the camera, Anna runs right past my right shoulder, making herself one of the first front row guests. My camerawoman rushed me to grab the microphone and go over to America’s Vogue editor in chief and probably still one of the outstanding figueres in fashion but I refused still in shock from my dream. I finaly managed to go near but once again had to step away after receiving one cold look from her. I guess I wasn’t the only one for no reporter took her picture or dared to ask one single question that day. I must say it was probably out of respect of her position in fashion and her perfect looks that seemed to be so above everyone that I didn’t interview her that day but I would still like to meet her for tea some day and have private tour through her wardrobe.

Instead I started my series of interviews with InStyle’s Anette Weber (Germany), Anna Dello Russo, and style icon Anna Piaggi, among others.

The show itself was in the most beautiful locations I have seen so far. A light-flooded all white tent with a fantasyjungle in greens and golds at the beginning of the catwalk. The models wore sleek hair and the music was sensitive classical music supported by modern bass kicking in giving the impression of a strangely serene garden with strong creatures living in it. The clothes itself can be discribed as the Indian Hippie Chic. Innumerable strings hanging from long flowing dresses made of light fabrics or skintight leather were cmbined with boho bags. The cuts for Roberto Cavalli’s Spring Summer 11 season are hip-hugging and with back-baring cutouts held by bikinistrings. The Hippie Chic may not be entirely new but the smokey pastel coloring was a different approach to the known whites + brights one suspects for this type of style. A piece or two from this collection could give my summerwardrobe a new edge.

After the show I was the last reporter to ask one last question to Roberto, which I will show you as soon as the video will be finished. My personal highlight may have been interviewing his son, Daniele Cavalli, now designer for the men’s line who, may I add, almost had me forget my name when he elaborated his philosophy of a woman’s sparkling eyes being one of the most beautiful things she could wear. (Ok, so he is a very handsome, charming and flirty boy already, speaking with a velvet voice just a few inches away from my eyes. What can I say?)

And while I tried to remember my name and interview questions Anna was already on her way to Laura Biagiotti, Iceberg or Armani without ever knowing who I was. I promise: The next time I’ll see her, I will be a brave blogette, holding my microphone in my right hand and the recording device in my left while looking my most-confident self and ask her the sharpest questions one could ask.

Until we will meet again Anna, I will be drawn into your web of fashionable strings and continue to admire you for your poise and accomplishments.

What a beautiful day this was!

Interview ::: When Yvan Rodic came to town

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 18, 2010

It may have been the last interview of the evening, we were tired and sometimes misunderstood each other but Yvan surely is a great interview partner. When being asked a question he will answer calm and eloquent. He takes his time for everybody who is interested and wants a piece of him. He is charismatic and keeps the bloggers standing in the interview queue happy with champagne. Yvan Rodic is a true professional who does what he likes and sometimes seems like he hasn’t realized that the formerly small blogger has become a celebrity and media spectacle wherever he goes. Watch the video and you will know what I mean. After misunderstanding my first question he comes back to answering it and tells us what fashion means to him, why he comes out with a book after making a buzz on the internet and what will be next for the handsome streetstyle blogger.

I am not obsessed with fashion…I like the idea of it as a form of creativity – a personal expression.

Open Call ::: Questions to ask Yvan Rodic aka FACEHUNTER

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 14, 2010

We all know and love his blog FACEHUNTER. Can you imagine a little blogette’s heart jumping up and down when a PR agency tells her that she will meet Yvan Rodic himself for his book release this Wednesday???!!!! I am kinda goin’ nuts over this. Love his blog, his realistic aesthetic, his eye for simple details – love FACEHUNTER.

+++This is when my blogette heart pumps in: Just  three more days to go. What should I ask him if I got five questions to pose?+++

My dear and loyal readers – can you help with this joyful task?

The most innovative questions will be forwarded to Yvan and the results will be published on Strytllng.

When + where = Facebook.

XOXO
Your Strytllr.
