So Fresh and So Clean

Outfits

Posted on

 

I have been so focused on sourcing the perfect outfits for the models that I shoot with that when it comes to my own back, it's left feeling a little bit neglected. My last month in Asia had me living in a proverbial cave where anything but tshirts and jeans shorts didn't exist. Back in Berlin I have been shamefully satisfied traipsing around in jumpers with questionable spots on the sleeves, the same old jeans and the H&M x MMM coat that I can transform into a tent or blanket when needed. Desperate times called for desperate measures. I finally put on a fresh shirt and a different pair of jeans and a pair of shoes that aren't screaming for resolement. I no longer look like a bum.

Balenciaga and Isabel Marant to the rescue though and you're left feeling like a million dollars. Literally. Proenza Schouler is the cherry on top that has me jumping from rock to rock in last last last last season's favourite pieces. I've missed you fashion!

I'm wearing a Proenza Schouler jacket, a no name shirt, Isabel Marant jeans and Balenciaga boots.

Where's the You in Trend

Outfits

There's a hurricane warning out for the North of Germany and I'm having my Dorothy moment today in this blush, tartan and white leather combo. Paint splash snake pumps add that extra factor of surprise to an outfit that would otherwise be too trendy for my liking. I can't stand it when a certain outfit can immediately be pigeonholed and "ticks" all those boxes that make it en vogue and in my book pretty damn boring. It's quite a feat when certain items become the token piece of a trend but you still manage to give them that refreshing twist of originality. Let's hope I managed to do that and broke away from those damn subliminal chains that trends put us all in. Having escaped a glossy lacks personal touch and what's the point in getting dressed if you don't incorporate some you? Know what I mean?

I am wearing thesupertrendyandit'sfuckingeverywhere Ganni coat, a pair of leather trousers by Isabel Marant pour H&M thattookoveryourfacebooknewsfeedforthelastmonth, an Acne jumper thatissosoftandcufddlythatitcouldreplaceHamish and a pair of nuff'said Christian Louboutin pumps, ear cuffs by Maria Francesca Pepe and rings by ellisue.

Neighbourhood Musings

As you can see I went furniture shopping. While the neighbourhood wolf (we clearly complement each other so well) was happily peeing on my new couch, I was contemplating how to get it back to the flat. After the Dachsund/Labrador mix came by and also decided to raise his leg I gave up on this fine mustard coloured specimen. While all this was going down I was chilling in this black and white combo with a dash of tartan, hoping my bum wasn't going to catch some kind of disease.

I am wearing a Proenza Schouler jacket, a Zara scarf, an Isabel Marant top, Elizabeth and James trousers and Alexander Wang boots.

Crater Staples

Outfits

Earthy hues are my way of slowly accepting the fact that winter is just around the corner and I've busted out those two fall staples that accompanied me through last year's bitterly cold months: the Acne shearling jacket and the Isabel Marant boots that made a hole the size of a crater in my bank account. I always wonder where those items go that bloggers invest so much in and after a few months they disappear into the Narnia sized closets never to be seen again. Feel free to send them to me! I'll wear them for you. I'm sinfully behind my annual Glühwein consumption but I'm initiating the festive, drunken season with a swig of these berry hued babies that may hurt like a bitch but their Western inspired beauty is undeniable even in their second year running. A little sexy sock flashing never hurt nobody.

I am wearing an Acne jacket, a TK Maxx jumper, Isabel Marant pour H&M leather trousers and Isabel Marant boots.

Braving the Grey

Outfits

I don't believe in queues, especially not for clothing. How I didn't pick up on Britain's favourite pastime while living in Scotland is beyond me. With a cup of tea (herbal, not black) in my hand I clicked the white and black leather Isabel Marant pour H&M trousers home in the evening of the launch day without participating in the solidarity camp on Friedrichstraße thank you very much. Since I also don't believe in leather trousers without belt loops that was the practical detail that sealed the deal. After several wears leather leggings end up at my ankles and I'd prefer to keep my cheeks covered in this weather but you wouldn't imagine how difficult it is to find decent leather trousers with belt loops. 

I have already raved on about Gaudeli's Vintage, my favourite vintage store in Berlin and now you can see the coat and blazer from her store in all their glorious action. She sources all her impeccable pieces from Italy and yesterday we had a long chat over chocolate cake about her and her store's history. Get ready for an in-depth interview and photos next week!

I can't hark on enough about how much I love winter layering, especially when there are two patterns involved as well as a texture mix of velvet, leather and handwoven fabrics from Firenze. I'm braving the onset of winter's greyness with some eff you blues and whites.

I am wearing a vintage blazer and coat, a Gina Tricot jumper, a Glamourai necklace, Isabel Marant pour H&M leather trousers and Thakoon boots.

P.S. See you in Paris tomorrow!
