Falling For Red

Yoko’s via OneTeaspoon

I stumbled over the new arrivals in OneTeaspoon‘s online shop and again, I am ridiculously IN LOVE. Soft suede in a warm orange-red?! Common…how can you not love a pair of shorts called Yoko’s. Since the Berlin Summer is slowly approaching a Berlin Fall – this warm tone couldn’t be better suited to resemble the warm colors of the third season. But I might need a little more fabric than this Australian label has to offer in order to stand the lower temperatures though. I did a little research for you and have come up with 3 jeans alternatives. They don’t hit the color exactly but from tomato-red to a slightly purple burgundy, I still have the hots for red jeans. Anything you would like to add?

Lolita x Tomboy

Posted in Fashion, Lookbook by strytllng on May 13, 2011

Last night I had a dream: I went back to Australia but for only 72hours. (Why one would travel around the globe for 72hours Down Under is beyond my logic.) What did I do with my precious time? After being followed by a gigantic snake I mainly went for some shopping. Some of my favorite blogs are from the southern hemisphere which may explain me dreaming about the continent far far away where Summer wardrobe dreams seem to come true.

Is the Australian Summer really so far away for this Berlinette? Then I remembered OneTeaspoon a label which is also available in Europe. I got the lookbook quickly to share with my readers. I must say, my love for this young label is growing even more. The Fall-Winter 2011 collection named The Wanderer mixes the perfect lolita look with tough tomboy style. Shorts, kimono-inspired jackets and babydolls meet XXL legged jeans and buttoned up shorts. My favorites are definitely those wide jeans paired with the kimono jackets. Inspiring!

Night Stories by Tiger of Sweden

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 31, 2010

Finally a press release that caught my attention. Jeans label Tiger of Sweden gave nine talented young Swedish filmmakers the task to visualize their new line of S/S 2010 jeans collection. The different approaches to coloration are reflected in nine very different short movies. All films are centered around the idea of the jeans being an item of the night hence the name: Night Stories. Finally a true story to be told inspired by fashion. Here are my favorites.

Women: Skinny Bright Black by Zorica Radovic and Sheila Johansson

Black is the absence of light but it surely is the most important ‘color’ when it comes to clothing. It therefore is everything. Thanks to the satin fabric, this model was label with an oxymoron: Bright Black. Because contrast and sometime contradiction is the most fun we have when playing with the expressiveness of fashion.

Men: Pistolero Perfect by Agnes Rosa Beckman

“…about a man and his lusts in the city and the night…” There is nothing left for me to add.
