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!

Lookbook ::: Hien Le Men S/S 2011

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on August 30, 2010

After Friday’s post of Hien Le‘s stunning Women S/S 2011 collection, I didn’t want to keep the male counterpart from you. “Counterpart” probably being too strong of a word here because Le’s design philosophy of equal juxtaposing shows in his design implementation – similar colors, materials, and details of women’s design to be cross-inspiring the modern men’s collection and vice versa.

I think I could wear a piece or two from this collection if only it was made for small (wo)men as well.

Young, unspoiled and the epitome of beauty.

Can you believe the curves of her lips and the vigor of her eyes?

Berlin Fashion Week 2011 ::: Starstyling

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on July 16, 2010

If you think young Berlin Fashion, Starstyling will cross your mind among the very first names. Their fresh approach to fashion will nurture the creative fashionista with colorful prints, a play with texture and material that wouldn’t be seen among conventional design houses. The S/S 2011 collection Anti Avanti is more wearable than the previous. With its urban hippiesque charm in denim and beige see through kaftans the pieces still stand out of the crowd of minimalistic and soft feminin approaches we saw at other shows – a Starstyling piece is never ordinary. Folcloristic prints on frayed denim detachable trough velcro, prints inspired by semiprecious stones, holographic cut-out foil applications are accentuated with a special collection by G-Shock watches (blogpost will follow) and headbijou out of natural materials such as the inspirational semiprecious stones. The grand finale which left the models, headed by Shaun Ross, dancing to music from a kids TV show which I cannot recall, summarized the fun-loving and “fashion doesn’t have to be such a serious thing” approach of the young label. The pictures below are a mixture of the runway presentation and the preview I had earlier that week at Collect Showroom. I wish every show was as much fashionable fun as Starstyling. I’ll be looking forward to the many to come and I bet so is Bryanboy, whom I spotted among the guests in the front row in Kenzo wedges. It was a pleasure to be Starstyling’s guest.
