Lookbook ::: Maison Scotch – London meets Paris

Posted in Lookbook by strytllng on November 6, 2011

Does anyone remember those oversized windbreaker jackets in white/red/blue back in the days when East 17 had a song or two in the charts? No? Well I do because my older brother had one of these Scotch & Soda IT-Jackets and I thought it to be a classic and kept it in the back of my closet (Where it still is.).

To my surprise, the same brand had opened up a store during Fashion Week in the summer 2011 in Berlin Mitte and I liked what I saw. The Dutch label has found a nice mix of what I can only describe as “A French girl goes to London.” The latest collection from the premium label Maison Scotch is characterized through: Boyish elements meet French chic – a vintage inspired layed back attitude is combined with glamour elements.

Can you believe the model was allowed to smile for this lookbook?

Discovery ::: GOGO PHILIP

Posted in Fashion by strytllng on April 26, 2011

When Georgi (Gogo) Philip Peckinov, Milanese banker turned jewellery entrepreneur he didn’t aim for the rich and famous. Instead he aimed for fun-loving and out-going women world-wide. Taking inspiration from the infamous designs of the last four decades, GOGO PHILIP‘s vintage inspired jewellery stole the spotlight at the Müller & Zenone showroom during the Berlin Press Days. Literally every blogette and journalist entering the small showroom at Hotel Amano in Berlin Mitte, jumped for joy and asked for details about the unknown young designer. To our surprise, the eye-blinding beauties are very well affordable and are available at Topshop.

While the current collection, as seen on the first photo, was an homage to the golden era of disco, the second collection is far more boho. For all of you with access to Topshop you know where to get your own little piece of playful accessory. For a blogette like myself that means waiting for GOGO PHILIP coming with his own store to Berlin.
