MyPaperSunglasses #2

MyPaperSunglasses runs off into its 2nd edition.The idea behind the project is simple: participants, artist of all fields, get a thick white paper, cut out in shape of cool shades for customization. The results are extraordinary: from kids-tinker-style over minimalist-handicraft-details until fantastic-oversized-creations every pair is unique and every pair is beautiful. Creative mind behind the project, Brazilian designer Otávio Santiago, explains: “..the sunglasses appear as panels, over which the artist propels his/her peculiar point of view, a very close one: a picture of him/herself that he/she always wanted to see, or, better, to exhibit.”

An outstanding and humorous project.

Exhibition of all new models photographed on their creators plus fashion editorial starts saturday.

COVENesque

photo: André Bittencourt

Once again the Brazlian brand Coven convinces during Fashion Rio by finding just the right equilibrium of elements that easily could not work out together but result to look fantastic. For spring summer 12 the COVENesque twist  consists of tough, lady and folclorist bases; splendid colours and 90ies. Incredibly well done pattern work on the black and white striped pants. Pay attention to music and shoes!

Watch video after the JUMP.

Garland Coo´s latest coup

“I am very intrigued by the next steps of this duo, may their passion to create persist.”The closure of my first post regards creative duo Garland Coo found its continuation, their latest coup, a Men’s collection. Loyal to their aesthetic and believes the result is breathtaking, dark and soulful. Take a presentiment of fine pattern work and crafted fabrics via those images. Can’t wait to touch the pieces!

MIX-STYLE HEADPHONES

Our friends from Mix-Style Japan sent us some of there fabulous headphones to check out and review. Aside from being stylish and sexy in a range of colors and designs we found the quality of sound to be optimal. These headphones send a powerful base straight into the listener´s ears while delivering clear, high-resolution sound in the midrange to high frequencies. Your music is well represented by these headphones as is your personal style! Check out the new "novel" range available this summer. http://www.mix-style.com/

Moderne Creation München

MCM - Moderne Creation MünchenThe label found in 1976 was an 80ies classic on West Berlins Ku´Damm. One of the first characteristics for fancy chic-ness I knew to identify in my childhood. Lately I saw several interesting (Street) Styles making use of Vintage models, especially in the white blue combination. The story behind the brand is super interesting, stay tuned, I will tell it soon.

Meanwhile have a look on their proposal for AW11.

Freestyle Magazine Urban Jam

What happens if you mix up the art of Freestyle Disc and urban architecture? Loads of pure fun and a completely new view of the city.Hunting for walls, gaps, quarters, handrails and art/monuments is an excintig alternative to the game on green flat grass.  To produce an new Freestyle Magazine Trailer some players of the Berlin Jammers, chief and creative director of the Freestle Magazine Jason McGlade and film producer Stephan Stoll met and went to some architectural and cultural hotspots in the center of Berlin. Special thanks go out to EASTPACK and ASICS for supporting us during that marvelous production!

Fashionistas and the iconaclastic plastic

I was lucky enough to attend London Fashion Week recently along with FSM fashion editor Deborah La Touche and Photographer and new addition to the team- Asia Werbel. I have been to many shows and fashion weeks around the world but this was the first time I went along as a publisher of a round magazine in a Frisbee. What a laugh! The fashion set are renowned for being ...... but words were at a loss to these savvy set when presented with such a thing. I made a point to always have at least one magazine under my arm at any one time and it was amazing how much attention our little round manifesto attracted. There were camp exclamations of "ooo I luuurve that pink Frisbee" and when i sat down in the press lounge many people came over to ask about FSM.

If there was incredulism at first it was quickly dispelled when the people had a close look at the magazine-the printing quality,photography and of course our pro frisbee. They quickly understood that our magazine is not about plastic but more about fantastic.

To prime myself for the week ahead of me I had some quality down to earth action with family and friends, donned my three piece suit and hat and jumped off into the deep end of fashion week London. Meeting up with the FSM team at the central LFW tent at the beautiful Somerset House we planned our busy week of shows and parties. The fashion shows are spread around London in different venues and Somerset House dating from 1776 acts as the central location to the proceedings. A large tent complete with a catwalk, backstage area, Photographers lounge and Press lounge is erected in the central courtyard area and i quickly understood that this was the best place to hang out for maximum FreeStyleMagazine promotion (and coffee, sandwiches, porridge, soup, energy drinks and a haircut courtesy of Toni&Guy) There i met a lot of great people like Christopher and the 55TV crew who came to be my partners in crime as the week unfolded. (check out my interview here )

There was a lot of posing and side glances as people struggled to be noticed or nonchalantly ignored the attention. Every night after a grounding pint of Guinness in the pub it was off to a party to join the fashion elite. FSM plus 55tv equals access all areas and we certainly made the most of it getting backstage and going to all of the swanky (some would say "wanky" parties). Aside from tom foolery though, we made some serious business meeting the elite of the Russian fashion industry and spending some time with some of our home grown talent and freeStyleMagazine collaborators Matthew Williamson and Sir Paul Smith. The latter being particularly enjoyable as is the case whenever i meet up with Sir Paul.

Out of all of the shows I went to backstage at Paul Smith was relaxed, jovial and intimate. With the beautiful and prestigious Savoy Hotel as the venue it served as an immaculate canvas for Paul Smith to create another one of his inspirational works.

With beautiful clothes on beautiful models the show dazzled me. I organized delivery of 100 Paul Smith issue two magazines that I distributed backstage and to some of his more prestigious guests as they were leaving. It was a joy to see these industry professionals enjoying FSM and even putting the Frisbee to good use as makeup trays! His whole team made me feel welcome which goes to show that in a company the attitude always trickles down from the top. So if the staff are kind then you can expect the boss to be kind also and vice versa. After a busy week of chin wagging I was ready to get back to the refuge that is Berlin. Being in London made me realize just how different the lifestyle is between the two cities. I will always maintain that Berlin really is the coolest city in the world. It is a constant inspiration to be here and I could never have made even one issue of FreeStyleMagazine- let alone three. You get to be an "artist" by having the luxury of cheap living costs paired with being immersed in a pool of creative energy. You can meet a film producer in Berlin and on the same day a lion tamer. It is a city that never fails to amaze me. The other side of the coin is that by being here you are not "in the game". It´s easy to be inside this Berlin bubble but if you are not careful you will look up after ten years and see that you are still the struggling artist. So London is calling. I think it may be time to go home-to get in the game again and perhaps become one of those lucky people who can keep one foot in Berlin and one foot in the game.

LFW Highlights

Backstage @ Matthew Williamson It was great to see all the magic happening backstage at Matthew Williamson.

As  a hippie at heart I was elated to see Matthew going back to the boho chic he does soooo well, this time with a Mongolian twist. Intricate patterned blanket coats and woven kaftans in grey, red, edible mint green and luxurious camel teamed with 5 inch suede hicking boots - with a little fox fur throw in for good measure.

This collection oozed sophistication with a totally relaxed vibe -  The Matthew Williamson woman knows what she is about and everyone is going to want a piece of her Yeti fur in A/W11.

Clements Riberio

I was totally excited about the return of  Clements Riberio after a couple of seasons doing static shows the duo pulled off a beautiful show, everything was very finely balanced. They incorporated paisley print, lace and embellishment with subtle muted colours and a splash of blood red and royal blue. oh and amazing tights - Shoes by Charlotte Olympia.
