Marble

Infinitoblack marble, fragrance of tyre, 42 x 53 x 78 cm 2004


this is ultimate maleness.
so simple.
so strong.
and yet so elegant.
no doubt it’s all about the material.
unexpected marble.

Cut me, tailor me

A good styling can detract from a less perfect handcraft.
So much the better when really excellent pieces of craftsmanship stand for their own.
Just like these gorgeous pieces from Juun J.
Nothing to add.

Boy's Paint








I always liked the idea of editorials working with both painting and photography.
What I pretty much like – no, let’s say love - about this fashion story is its subtle approach to fashion.
These boys are not just models wearing clothes. They are part of 17 beautiful paintings revealing how delicately fashion and art can go together.

You have a look at the pictures, study their colours, the arrangement of clothes, study what these boys wear and why. You may think of Manet, may think of Diego Velazquez, whatever – in the end you will end up remembering your on youth years ago.
And, how effortless you might have worn Comme des Garcons those days – if you could have afforded it.

German artist Christian Schoeler (based in Düsseldorf) did the artwork for this sensual editorial and worked closely together with Another Man’s Alister Mackie. See more of Christian’s paintings here.

Not sad at all...



...but "Sad Song" goes always.
Not the newest song, but effortless jazz never gets out of style.
Don't know why, but despite it's title this song reminds me of summertime...
Spring is just about to knock on your door...

And just in case you'd like to go: Room Eleven will be playing in London (Trafalgar Square, April 18th), Bourges (France, April 20th) and Amstelveen (Netherlands, May 2nd).

Tickets for Amstelveen still available here.

Chronicle... #1


image via fashionspot

That look just stands for what I really like in men's fashion; a young, handsome man who is quite sure of his presence, a simple stance, a beautiful daylight picture, an amazing tailored dinner-jacket with his own vintage sweatshirt and tight jeans
Olivier Rizzo, Stylist

Found this 1999's masterpiece of style while surfing the web.
Raf Simons dinner jacket, vintage hoodie and an almost gothic, weird Mickey-Mouse-face. Gorgeous!

Take it...

...with a sense of humour.
Wonderful illustrations of Stockholm-based illustrator Moa Edlund.
Never seen naughty topics so naively interpreted...

Kleidergedanken








images via Temporaryshowroom

Die Sprache ist die Kleidung der Gedanken

, sagte einst der englische Gelehrte Samuel Johnson.
Aber funktioniert es nicht auch andersrum?

Die Kleidung ist die Sprache der Gedanken.

Und wenn die Kleidung im scheinbar luftleeren Raum schwebt - hat sie dann als Ausdrucksmittel überhaupt noch Gültigkeit? Verliert Sie ohne den Bezug zu ihrem Träger an Bedeutung, oder gewinnt sie dadurch?

Vielleicht hängt das auch vom Blickwinkel ab.
Bei Odeur jedenfalls scheint sie eindeutig an visueller Ausdruckskraft dazuzugewinnen.
Auch ohne Models.

Mehr zur Odeur-Spring-/Summer 09-Kollektion gibt's hier.

Sexual Politics





images via Justine Lai


Sex and Crime is something we all know about. Sex and Politics still is a matter-of-fact nobody speaks about. Painter Justine Lai neither does. She just paints it. In her playful but not pornographic paintings she shows herself in - let's say intimate interaction with America's presidents: Lincoln, Wilson, Roosevelt and Reagan; in her paintings, she has them all - in chronological order.
She describes her intention as follows:

The presidency itself is a seemingly immortal and impenetrable institution; by inserting myself in its timeline, I attempt to locate something intimate and mortal. I use this intimacy to subvert authority, but it demands that I make myself vulnerable along with the Presidents.


Find more of her wonderful "Join or Die"-series here.

Black Fairytale

Nicht, dass ich ein Faible für dunkle Kollektionen hätte...
"Telescope and envelope", die neue Herbst-/Winter-Kollektion von Butterflysoulfire ist wirklich eine gelungene Hommage an die Nichtfarbe und ihre zahlreichen Schattierungen.
Hier geht's zum kompletten Online-Lookbook.

Designers Against Aids


Credits: Directed by Jozef Deville and Javier Barcala
Production assistant: Mark Douglas
Make up/Hair stylist: Vasko Todorof

Found this at Designers Against Aids...
I nearly forgot about him, but here he comes back again:
Mr. Gender-bender-beard-boy André J.
Love his fresh, trashy attitude and his humour...

And by the way: love the Parisian Vogue Cover (November 2007) with him wearing the blue womens' Burberry trench, cocktail ring and ancle boots...remember?

That was sooo great!

Woke up today and stared at the cyan-toned sky.
Spring is about to come.
It's coming in Whites, Beiges, Greiges and Sand-Tones...
