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?

…and the perfect shade of lipstick…

I feel the urge to get myself a new color, which one do you recommend?

lala Berlin @ Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin 2011

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on July 8, 2010

I cannot go around Berlin this week and not share some of the things I see during Berlin’s Fashion Week. This in fact is not the point to start because somehow my invitation request had fallen trough but I love lala Berlin anyhow – this collection is no exception to the rule. I don’t think I need to introduce this uptown-meets relaxed chic label, that started with knits and slowly develops its line with other luxurious garments allowing a wider range of styles.

AFRICAN GRUNGE MEETS FUTURISTIC ARCHITECTURE

…yes…ahammm…so it said in the press release which made me think of Susan Sontag’s “Against Interpretation” (which I should be reading again). I see the reference in the draping and lively colors but I guess I would have had to be at the show to see the full picture. The wet hair look could be greasy grunge hair and hey, there are jeans involved. I am not sure Kurt would have worn flashy silk – neither can I picture the young Courtney.

Who cares about the names someone gives a collection. I am in love with the idea of a bit more kaftan and light-as-feather materials in my wardrobe for a hot summer like this. Unfortunately this is the Spring-Summer 2011 collection and won’t be hitting the stores any time soon. I am looking forward to next Spring!
