Metamorphosis

Sooooo the subway ain’t running from today till Monday and I would have to take the bus to get to places. And this shit just sounds like I am going to stay at home all weekend long and I am scared. Who wants to be at home on the weekend? Like bus driving is so annoying and it takes forever. At least Imma have more time to blog, I guess…

And I will start right now with Sing Yu Chen‘s final major project: his AW14 collection named “Metamorphosis”. Metamorphosis is a biological process, a profound change in form from one stage to the next in the life history of an organism, as from the caterpillar to the pupa and from the pupa to the adult butterfly. In this project, the concept will be analyzed human being transform from one form to the other in the future. Their colours, textures and silhouettes inspire the collection, which also combine futuristic elements to create an innovative menswear collection. The whole collection will be bared deconstructed tailoring, which back related to the key word ‘metamorphosis’, by combining of organic and man-made fabrics.

Gooood stuff:

Wifey Material

And that’s why this song right here is perfect:

It Was All A Dream

So my NYC trip seems like it was all a dream. Everything went by so fast and I had the time of my life. So everything that is left over is this and a couple of memories:

And I truly believe in signs in life. And you can call me crazy, but as soon as the plane started, I turned on my Iphone to listen to some music and Beyonce’s Mine came on and the first thing she was singing is:

I’ve been watching for the signs

Took a trip to clear my mind
Now I’m even more lost
And you’re still so fine, oh my, oh my

And my Iphone was on pause or I pressed pause unconsciously. I don’t fucking know what this is supposed to mean. But I guess I’ll figure out soon…Foto (1)

Big Park

Rooftop chilling is actually the thing you have to do when you are in NY.
So Big Park made the right choice when they decided to present their SS15 collection called “Wish You Were Here…” at Mondrian Soho Rooftop in New York. And I am glad I was there, because this is at this moment my favorite NYFW collection, because it’s giving me a London street vibe. With music by international DJ/Producer JULI-LEE this presentation even got better.

And I have to admit that I have a little crush on these models and especially this one right here (she hot or nah? But let’s keep this being strictly business):

But not only are the models cute as fuck. The fashion is just on point. Giving us a very London streetwear look, but still keeping it feminine. Take a look: IMG_0032.JPG IMG_0028.JPG IMG_0015.JPG IMG_0012.JPG

MTV Cribs

The following is an MTV Cribs special presentation.

Come on in MTV Cribs, let me show you around the Topkapı Palace, which is  a large palace in Istanbul/Turkey, that was the primary residence of the Ottoman sultans for approximately 400 years. And now it’s mine for a couple of seconds. Fuck what you heard it’s mine, it’s mine. So let me show you around.
As well as a royal residence, the palace was a setting for state occasions and royal entertainments. It is now a major tourist attraction and contains important holy relics of the Muslim world, including Muhammed’s cloak and sword. The palace complex consists of 4 main courtyards and a couple of smaller buildings. And the smaller buildings are as big as the hood I used to live in. Back in time the palace was home to approximately 4,000 people. And now I live here alone, because I upgraded myself to this:

Dope As F**k

This right here happened during Berlin Fashion Week, too: Franziska Michael showed her spring summer 2015 collection and is in retrospective one of my favorites. And this collection is everything Berlin needed. And I am also going to tell you why in a second.

Franziska Michael’s designs are characterised by contrast. Structure and fluidity, colour and monochrome, natural fibres and high-tec synthetics are all employed to create men’s and women’s wear that defies expectations. Having studied Fashion Design at Esmod International University of Art for Fashion, Berlin, Franziska Micheal set up her self-named label in 2009. For her SS15 Franziska is bringing a colourful, very 90s clubkid mixed with HipHop collection. 

And I have to admit I read a couple of articles before I wrote this, saying that her style is not very typically Berlin and at the same time I am wondering if this person (the author of the article I have read) has ever been on the streets of Berlin. Probably not. Like I am not even from this metropolis, but I do know  that Franzsika Michael’s fashion is representing a part of Berlin’s fashion scence (even if it’s only a small one, but still it is typically Berlin). And I bet I just mentioned Berlin three times per sentence right now, but you know what I am trying to say. Just stop putting the fashion of a city in categories just because it’s not mainstream. However I honestly thing that this collection would have gotten more attention if it was shown during London Fashion Week…(and I even feel bad for saying this, because I want her to show her stuff in Berlin).

As I said this is one of the best collections of BFW SS15 and you better take a  look at it:
