TUNE OF THE WEEK – IMARHAN, TABAHORTReady for the weekend? Here’s the tune to express all your weekend joy to: It’s a brand new single by Imarhan, a circle of Algerian friends that started playing together in 2008. Coming from various cultural backgrounds they blend pop melodies and pan-African rhythms which draw on traditional Tuareg music. I think it’s an excellent blend and a nod to how well different cultures can mix and mingle.      Have an amazing weekend everyone!       Imarhan…

Look – Dark Blue Denim, Yellow StitchingHere´s a couple of things I like this fall: Dark denim, pointy, flat leather boots and anything dark blue.  When I looked at the picture above I was also reminded of the Prada Men´s Spring 2015 collection. I admit the Levi´s Curve I´m wearing in this picture – that my friend, photographer Kristin Loschert, took recently – is a tad different from Miuccia Prada´s beautiful denim. But it also reminded me of something she said, backstage at the show to ...

Trend Alert – The Scarf Controversy The second Miuccia Prada showed her fall collection people went nuts about her skinny silk scarves. Alexa Chung, of course, was one of the first glossy-fixtures to sport one, hers being black and boring (if you care to know – they come in a range of odd retro colors). At this point you might have guessed it: I´m not super crazy about them. They remind me of the 20ies (fine) and strangulation (not fine) and they´re utterly impractical if you live in Berlin…

Persona Grata – John Patrick Name: John Patrick Wie es wurde… In den 70er Jahren besitzt John Patrick einen kleinen Laden, den „The Stolen Kiss“. Dort verkauft er mit einem Freund Secondhand-Kleidung. 1982 entwirft er eine Hutkollektion, die das renommierte New Yorker Kaufhaus Barney´s komplett aufkauft. So stolpert John Patrick in seine Modekarriere. Er selber sagt: „Die nächsten zwanzig Jahre habe ich damit verbracht, herauszufinden wie man eigentlich Kleidung macht.“   Was es ...
