Ivanman

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 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:

Stone. Water. Piano.

Stone. Water. Piano.

I would never expect these three words put together to make so much sense, but Korean designer CY CHOI makes 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:

ETQ Amsterdam

Let’s cut the bullshit for today, because it’s been a loooong day and I am tired as fuck. I am blessed but stressed and am seeking my bed so bad. And so ETQ Amsterdam is fulfilling all my needs right now by keeping random questions about their background and who they are short and simple:

WE COULD TELL YOU ALL KINDS OF STORIES,
BUT THAT’S NOT WHO WE ARE.
WE’RE HONEST. CLEAN. TIMELESS. EXCEPTIONAL.
AND SO IS OUR PRODUCT.

On point! And not only the designs of ETQ Amsterdam‘s sneakers are dope is fuck, but so is their attitude. And they don’t need all that blah blah blah, because the sneakers speak for themselves. So serious question: can I like seriously have these and live? I swear these are made for me to walk in. So check out my favorites, but don’t forget there is more on www.etq-amsterdam.com:

Good night y’all and I bet I will be dreaming about wearing these sneakers.

The Shit I’m Wearing: Adidas

For this post I tried to make something different and keep it as real and urban as possible. And maybe just because this was the most spontaneous #ootd shooting I have ever done. And in my mind I thought:  If Karl can use his Ipad, then I can use my Iphone (basically that’s what I say all the time).  So this is what happened:

Me and a friend of mine where walking down the city when we heard classical music coming out of this building. And so we entered it, I was literally like: My outfit is all Adidas everything, this building is fucking insane, let’s take these pictures! And btw this was the most relaxing shooting I have ever done.

And I am just obsessed with the Adidas shoes and sweater I am wearing. And if I wasn’t a fashion blogger I would say that I wear it almost every day, but this is probably not a part of the blogging etiquette.
So the sweater is from Nigo’s first Adidas collection named Originals by Nigo, who is inspired by vintage sportswear. And in case you don’t know who Nigo is, you should do some research! But most definitively you have seen his face somewhere! To make it super short: Nigo is a Japanese music producer and DJ who worked with Pharrell and the creator of the urban clothing line A Bathing Ape. And the Adidas collection is sooooo good!

The Shit I’m Wearing: Riding Dirty

They see me rolling, they hating, they trying to catch me riding dirty…

That’s exactly how I felt when I had the chance to test drive Jaano. Never heard of it? Well, that’s what I am here for.
Founded by the two friends Jaan Hofmann and Tino Hoffrichter, Jaano is offering scooter sharing to everybody living in Hamburg (and it will probably spread out to your city soon, so just watch out). It’s the perfect solution for traffic and transportation in urban areas, since you can rent the scooter for as much time as you need and just park wherever. No strings attached, because you pay for the time you use the Jaano scooter and wherever you find one of these you can hopp on and off anytime. The concept is simple and genius at the same time! You just have to register (and of course have a driver’s licence and stuff like that) and off you go.

And since I am a huge fan of it, I did put on my good outfit and got myself up on that  Vespa Primavera 50 4T 4V. Take a look (a little posing never hurt nobody)! VROOM VROOM!
Jaano Weekday weekday I don't give a fuck Jaano JaanoThe idea is dope as fuck and you will definitely gonna catch me riding on this in Hamburg, so make sure you like Jaano on Facebook!

And btw: wanna shop the look? Here you go:
1. Sweater: Weekday (it’s on sale)
2. Shirt: Asos
3. Jeans: Cheap Monday
4. Shoes: Superga
5. Socks: Bought them in Patrica Field‘s store in NYC and I couldn’t find them online...

Chapter 2

I was mesmerized by Chapter 1, but Chapter 2 is just as dope.

For the cold season MISBHV goes back to where they re from in an effort to bridge the gap between the grainy Eastern Block nostalgia and the energy of New Europe. Instead of shooting a studio lookbook the brand is taking it to the streets of cities they love – Paris, Warsaw and New York!  And offering shearling coats, wool coats, biker jackets, all 3M reflective jackets alongside suede and neoprene pieces, this collection is in my opinion one of the best ones yet.

And I am ready for a Chapter 3: New York!
