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.

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.

Lookbook ::: OneTeaspoon A/W 1011

Posted in Lookbook by strytllng on September 8, 2010

Some people cannot wait until the day they turn 18: they run free, careless and might even pack their few belongings to take a road trip. But what they don’t have in mind is a concrete and ambitious vision of their future. The young Amy Walsham took that road trip from Queensland all the way down to Sydney but instead of camping, partying or visiting friends, she had 2 scissors, a suitcase full of clothes and her head filled with visions. It doesn’t come as a surprise that her first designs were sold alongside Australia’s motorways until a streetwear retailer ordered the first selected items in 2000. By now, OneTeaspoon’s unconventional designs and selective designs are available world-wide and celebrities like Mischa Barton and Nicole Richie are among the famous fans.

Irregular hemlines and cuts, impure prints, slouchy and oversized cuts meet high quality fabrics in soft rosé, black, white and jeansblue while  decoratively placed utensils like colossal zippers, perfect beading and studded designs create a contrasting interplay leaving the wearer effortlessly fashionable day- and nighttime. My personal favorite are the bodysuits with ueberlarge frills. Definitely a new label to keep in mind.

ellesse x WOOD WOOD pool party

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on July 2, 2010

I’ll be looking forward to this clash of sports and -streetwear from two different decades. Can’t wait to see the symbiosis happening. ellesse was one of my very first posts when they had their comeback last January and be sure to read all about the pool party in a week. Until then, I will leave the office for a nice day at the beach with my girls – it’s simply to hot NOT to be around water. 36° – not my type of weather. The pool party is by invitation only!

Have a great weekend!

New Love in Fashiontown: RIKA

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on May 27, 2010

There are moments in our lives that will change anything and looking back we are under the impression that we knew exactly what we were doing, when being asked how we managed to get the job we always wanted, dated the hottest (wo)man there was to date or how we influenced somebody’s life to the better, we are sure to tell a confident story of well prepared steps and skills. But the truth is, a moment that life-changing is barely ever noticed until the effects of it can be seen as rock-solid results.

When Swedish born stylist-turned-designer Ulrika Lundgren started her fashion label Rika in 2005 she was probably one of the few who knew exactly what she was doing. After a successful career in fashion and interior styling for prestigious magazines such as Casa Vogue and Elle Decoration, Lundgren put her creative drive and her experience in the fashion world to a good start. As for her love of details Lundgren credits her Grandmother who showed her that the round-off to a harmonious outfit lies in the small things. The designer’s choice to use handcrafted chemical free leather and canvas is an additional bonus showing her understanding to a modern’s girl wardrobe that will include strong pieces as well as romantic items and won’t miss a vast selection of timeless vintage pieces.

WHAT HAPPENS IN PARIS STAYS IN PARIS – A/W 2010

Rika’s upcoming Autumn/Winter collection 2010 was inspired by modern icons and French it girls du jour like the always natural beauties Vanessa Paradis and Clémence Poésy. Notebookprints, soft colors and nude tones are giving this collection its je ne sais quoi but besides the playful and mysterious charm of French Bohème, the signature pieces must be the stars and lips accessorized leather goods. Every woman on Planet Fashion says she would love to get a hands on the 2.55 from Chanel but one look at the rosé colored suede Liv Bag and the hearts of young girls and women alike will be handed over into the arms of passionate up-and-coming designer Ulrika Lundgren who understands the core of feminine need for dressing.

We might age but we will never lose our need for playful and eye-catching details uplifting our walk as we manage every moment of our so-called life – but it’s a hell lot of easier being confident when you feel good in the clothes that you are in.

RIKA – FASHIONAPPROVED BY OPENING CEREMONY AND COLETTE

It doesn’t come as a surprise that Rika is highly in demand. A special collection is currently available at Opening Ceremony and RIKA MAGAZINE’s issue no.two has become a rare collector’s item, sold out even at Colette or what I like to call it: Fashionmecca.

If you want to know how your Strytllr heard about this amazing fashion treasure, then you must not have read my past articles carefully. The reminder is here.

Introducing ::: SESSUN

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 8, 2010

Introducing? What is this girl saying?

I know that some of you might already know this brand but it is not very well known in Germany yet. I myself have come upon this streetwear label while I was in Lyon for the Nuits Sonores and the lovely Claire introduced me to the French brand. I never really forgot about SESSUN but it wasn’t very present either until a friend of mine invited me to his first exhibition of photography to Lyon.

So I decided to contact the PR at Sessun to ask for the Spring/Summer lookbook – and PAAAAHHHMMM – it hit me again. The mix of different material, the warm colors and recognizable prints, the sportive cuts and yet modern feminine design.

Emma François, founder of SESSUN got the inital idea to design a clothing line instead of dedicating herself to her studies of economic anthropology while she was on a journey through South America. During the visit Emma passionately fell in love with South America’s stunning culture and craftsmanship and preserves and reinvents those impressions with every new collection since 1995.

I like this line especially for the contrast in warm mustard and jeansblue colors while puristic cuts meet materials of fluidity. I am sure I will find a retailer in Berlin soon otherwise: LYON be aware!!!
