All in Fashion
Since I’ve grown very fond of a brand that produces dresses and skirts mainly in midi-length, I’ve been forced to look at heel options that I am actually able to wear on a daily basis.
I remember when Karl Lagerfeld wrote in the introduction for Peter Lindbergh’s book 10 Women that of the women depicted in the book, probably only Kate Moss and Amber Valetta would have the key to the near future. At the time I thought that was absurd,
It’s been a few weeks since the shows closed. It was nice to take a step back and revisit the images I had already curated, and go through the remaining shows to pick the ones I like best.
I stumbled upon Nili Lotan when I looked through the Spring 2019 collections. I wanted to wear almost every outfit in her lookbook. Her style is definitely New York: sophisticated, a touch of masculinity, not trying too hard.
I’m always on the lookout for a pair of heels that I’ll actually wear. I have so many stilettos, but most of the time I opt for flats because of the comfort. Block heels are my favorite as of late, and then I’ve discovered the 2.5 inch heel.
Milan is one of my favorite fashion weeks. The overall vibe is very much along my personal sensibilities, and it’s not as overwhelming as Paris fashion week.
For the longest time I didn’t wear any jewelry. I always had the feeling it’s too much, clothes are enough. I had my ears pierced when I was a child, and I used to wear earring all the time, in fact me and my best friend in high school were notorious for wearing identical, extremely large earrings.
Here are my favorite females from London Fashion week. Two things I’m noticing as I’m scrolling through all the shows: the pant rise is falling, and there are a lot of pouf sleeves.
Time flies, London Fashion Week is already over as well, and I am still working my way through the New York shows.

Besides my home, the Black Forrest, I have lived nowhere else longer than in Los Angeles. 12.5 years of my life I spent there, and like most people, I have a love-hate relationship with the city.
I have an extremely stylish friend from Nigeria, and every time I see her I admire her clothes, accessories, and everything else that she is carrying with her. It always pulls you in when someone knows exactly who they are stylistically I think, because nothing seems forced.
Simply sexy. No lace, flowers, etc. It's sensual in a very modern way.
Summer is very reluctantly starting in the cities I’ve been in the past few weeks (New York and Berlin). Nevertheless, or maybe because of this delay, I am spending a bit of time looking at my summer wardrobe and reveling at the thought of actually wearing it.
So Ali Hynek created this beautiful bag line in 2013 to celebrate her Guatemalan heritage. She creates bags out of one-of-a-kind vintage fabrics or out of newly woven artisan fabrics.
I've been wanting a crochet bikini for years and finally got one at the end of last season (which came in handy for my trip to the Dominican Republic last September, where we had to flee from Hurricane Irma).
I've met the Artigas sisters (Gabriela designs, Teresita manages) when I lived in Los Angeles. They live together with their brother (who is also in the creative field) in a what I can only describe as a charismatic house, a mix of their Mexican roots and California ease.
It was pouring the day we shot this. I knew ahead of time and had scouted locations that were covered - I actually mainly wanted to shoot in the subway. There is something quite poetic about the New York subway,
The fascination with French style has been around forever, but before I start off I want to make clear what I mean when I say “French style.” There are definitely different interpretations around. This is what I mean:
