Soulland: Exotic Erotic

I seriously asked myself: why am I always late with shit? I need to set my priorities right for 2k15 and post things in time and on time. But then again fashion can never be old news…

So during LCM Soulland was presenting their AW15 collection “Exotic Erotic”.
Soulland was founded in 2002 and is owned by designer Silas Adler and CEO Jacob Kampp Berliner. Its design principles and aesthetics have their origins in Scandinavian artisanship combined with a contemporary feel. Whilst always remembering its legacy, Soulland aims to push menswear forward in new directions.
Presenting two seasonal collections alongside two pre-collections every year, Soulland has received much acknowledgement from international press outlets such as The New York Times, Euroman, GQ, ID Magazine, Bangkok Post, The Guardian, Dazed & Confused and Selectism. Soulland designer Silas Adler was awarded Designer of the Year at DANSK Fashion Awards 2012. Open your eyes:

LED Futurism Sneakers

Central Saint Martins and Parsons student collections always make every other school’s fashion programs look like shit.
Same with Samuel Yang‘s graduate collection. Her interpretation of “the invisible and formless things, the aura that exists among people” with white symbolizing purity as a common theme and the silhouettes being sculptural but still clean is the shit. But when I saw the pictures I couldn’t take my eyes of the shoes. The highlight from the collection came in the form of a pair of minimalistic LED futurism sneakers.
If your brain didn’t get it yet: minimalistic LED futurism sneakers!!!
samuel yangSo Yifang Wan and Samuel Yang collaborated on the so called Simulation shoes.  This is so next level, it’s blowing me off my feet! And I remember being a kid having glowing shoes (like the kind that start glowing when you make a step) literally tap dancing in the dark just to make them glow. These shoes make my inner child super excited.

So if you have $499 left then feel free to shop the shoes right here. And since I want and need these, I am just gonna look on Ebay for a cheaper version of it…

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!

This Is Not Clothing Collection III

Museums are actually one of my most favorite places. It’s super quiet and relaxed and you get inspired by all the art around you. And sometimes I just like to sit there and watch people. I know I am so weird. However taking that museum aspect and transforming it into a whole collection is basically (actually this is just a super simple way to explain it) what This Is Not Clothing did for Collection III

This Is Not Clothing is a luxury brand and consumerist art movement. Artist Jam Sutton celebrates and reinvents masterful artworks, juxtaposing contemporary culture and fine art.  The clothing is considered a wearable canvas, featuring original bespoke artwork prints onto ethical fair trade cotton.

Collection III takes inspiration from classical sculpture and modern protest. The collection features a series of digital sculptures created by Jam Sutton using 3d scanning techniques of real-life models. (Digital sculpture models: Jack Beran, Emelie Stenman & Joel Hicks. 3D scanning technology provided by Ten24. 3D data refinement by Ten24, additional modelling by Ben Douglas.) “It’s a way for me to exhibit my artwork in a way that’s different to a gallery or museum setting“, says Jam Sutton.

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
