Since everybody is making fun of Kim Kardashian’s new hairstyle and comparing it with Draco Malfoy, I thought I should join the cast! NO, I did not dye my hair blonde, but I really wanted to be a Harry Potter character, too. And that’s why I got my Severus Snape on, but in a stylish kind of way: so for this ootd post I did not only went back to Berlin, but also back to black, with a black shirt, a black leather vest and a black cape.

That’s a good look, better yet a hood look. Here is another ootd! That was actually what I was wearing on the last day of Fashion Week Berlin. I seriously was too tired to “dress up”, which I actually never do. So I was like fuck it and let me chill with my basic ass clothes. And you can tell I was partying a lot:

Amsterdam based label Daily Paperreleased the images of the first part of their Spring/Summer 2015. For the look book the label travelled to Morocco, the country that served as the main inspiration for their collection. And you can clearly see Morocco’s color palettes and fabrics in their fashion. And this shit turned out to be dope af. I must admit that I have a secret fetish when it comes to look books. Like a lot of them pictures are so good that I want to pin them on my wall, just so I can look at it every day. For more than just one season.
Founded in 2010, Daily Paper is an Amsterdam based menswear label. Inspired by the founder’s own African heritage and passion for contemporary fashion an alternative path has been found, turning Daily Paper into a well-respected creator of authentic ready-to-wear garments. The menswear label is known for being affected by different African cultures incorporating these influences into modern design with a unique rugged character.
Daily Paper’s focus lies in the design of men’s fashion apparel that considers authenticity, with an emphasis on tailoring and an eclectic use of materials. The products are made to compliment the consumer’s passion for individuality and personal style. Devoted to quality garments, fine detailing, culture and overall great designs, Daily Paper stays true to their unique brand aesthetic. After travelling to Morocco for a photo-shoot in early 2014, the design team of Daily Paper got inspired by the culture, colors and fabrics of the Moroccan people. Upon their return they got back to the drawing board and created 2 collections for the SS15 collection. The first chapter is mainly focussed on the color palettes used by the Moroccan people and their use of fabrics, while the 2nd chapter shows influences from ancient and modern ‘Berber tribe’ elements. The collection is an ode to North African culture and is filled with well tailored staples such as: All over print T-shirts, nylon vests, classic bomber jackets, cotton rain coats, and all over embroidered jogger pants.
Berlin. Berlin. Berlin.
A fashion week that is not relevant and at the same time not irrelevant. It’s just stuck in the middle (and every business/economy student knows that this is the worst position ever) and I think I am going to make a marketing plan to make it more attractive to the international fashion scene. although MBFWB is in it’s core super international. And labels like IVANMAN make me not want to give up on this certain week. The designer Ivan Mandzukic(in case the label name IVANMAN didn’t make sense to you, now it should) is bringing colourblocking into FW15 and I like the fact he is giving his style, which is more on the classical look kind of side, a more colorful twist. And I feel like with the color orange he is in tune with the FW15 times. See yourself:
I would never expect these three words put together to make so much sense, but Korean designer CY CHOImakes it happen. And that’s what this brands stands for: differentiation of the objects from the exclusive line and shifting boundaries into a new direction. Launching this brand for menswear in Paris back in 2009, CY CHOI melts his values that agonizes the possibility of transformation between art and design and seeks after visualizing the invisibleness with his own mimesis from the past.With his FW14 collection “Figure” Cy stays true to his signature black and white style and at the same time is taking it to another level of greatness.
Uhhh, I want this: Pictures via Cy Choi
