carry it with you...

Prada bag, spring summer 2011

I think everyone knows already that I like (to carry) bags...I do think that most of the time we really "need" them. Sometimes we don't but that doesn't really is the point here :D. They do give a little extra to the look. They elevate it, isn't it?!

Jeder weiß das ich gerne Taschen trage. Ich glaube, dass wir sie die meiste zeit wirklich "brauchen"! Manchmal nicht aber darum geht es hier auch nicht :D
Sie geben (den meisten Outfits) das gewisse Extra, oder nicht ?!

KILL BILL VOL. 3 is coming!

It is official, Kill Bill Vol. 3 is coming and it will be f****** bloody amazing (I think)! :D

She said "When you grow up, if you still feel raw about it, I'll be waiting." And it looks like Lil Nikki (Vernita Green's daughter and secretly trained by eye-patched Elle who obviously did not die in that trailer in the second movie) wants some revenge! Can't wait for it!

Es ist offiziell, Kill Bill Vol. 3 kommt und es wird verdammt blutig! : D

Es sieht so aus als ob die kleine Nikki (Vernita Green's Tochter, die von der blinden Elle, die offensichtlich nicht im Wohnwagen starb, heimlich ausgebildet wurde) Rache für den Tot ihrer Mutter ausüben will! Wird definitiv geil!

the vision of september...

Der September scheint nicht nur ein wichtiger Monat für die Mode-Branche zu sein, auch Unternehmen aus anderen Märkten nutzen den neunten Monat des Jahres für Ankündigungen und Veröffentlichungen neuer Produkte.
Lumis 920 available in 5 colours and Lumia 820 with exchangeable back covers
Nokia präsentierte uns am 5.9 zwei neue Geräte der Lumia Serie die mit dem neuen Windows Phone 8 Betriebssystem betrieben werden. Das Lumia 920, das neben einem Puremotion HD+ 4,5 Zoll Screen verfügt, der unter anderem auch mit einem Handschuh oder auch dem Fingernagel bedient werden kann, trumpft vor allem mit der 8,7 Megapixel Kamera auf, die durch die von Nokia entwickelte Pureview Technik auch gute Bilder bei schwachen Lichtverhältnissen schießt. Zudem beherrscht das Gerät NFC, LTE und kann kabellos aufgeladen werden.

Das Lumia 820 ist die etwas abgespeckte (kostengünstigere) Version, die eine 8 Megapixel Kamera ohne Pureview Technik, sowie ein Clear Black Display und wechselbare Cover bietet. Beide Geräte sind aus dem vom Lumia 800 und 900 bekannten Polycarbonat, das recht resistent gegen Kratzer ist und einiges aushält! Mein Lumia 800 ist gefühlte 35.000 hingefallen und hält immer noch!

iPhone 5 in white and black
Am 12.9 präsentierte Apple das neue iPhone, neue iPods, ein re-designtes iTunes und neue Kopfhörer, die drei Jahre lang entwickelt wurden!!! Das neu iPhone an sich bietet nicht viel Neues außer einem (endlich) größerem Display (4Zoll), LTE und eine neue Buchse (kein micro-USB). Hinzu kommen noch neue Features in iOS 6, aber dafür braucht man kein iPhone 5 sondern kann auch nach wie vor das iPhone 4s updaten. Ein Kommentar auf Heise Online fast es recht gut in einem Satz zusammen. "Tolles Smartphone. Doch es fehlt eine Vision, ein neues Killer-Feature." Wahrscheinlich war die Panorama-Funktion als Highlight gedacht ?! Alles in einem war es eine gelungene Präsentation, aber weniger wegen der Produkte sondern eher weils einfach cool war...wie immer! Das neue iPhone ist ab dem 21.9 erhältlich und kommt in (Achtung) Schwarz und Weiß.

Nachtrag: Das iPhone 5 wurde bereits über zwei Millionen mal vorbestellt und hat somit den Rekord des iPhone 4s gebrochen! Des Weiteren gibt es (wie erwartet) Lieferungsengpässe! Das ist dann wohl die künstliche Verknappung die nach wie vor verdammt Erfolgreich ist! :D

This Blog is not dead...yet!




Guten Tag die Herrschaften!

Es ist schon eine ganze Weile her das ich das letzte mal was veröffentlicht habe! Über zwei Monate um genau zu sein! Hatte viel um die Ohren und auch nicht wirklich den Willen was zu posten! Ich muss auch ehrlich sagen das ich das Gefühl habe, dass das Blog-Format langsam an seine Grenzen stößt. Warum sag ich das ?! Weil es neue Formate gibt, die viel schneller sind und auch viel schneller wachsen! Wir hatten den Blog Boom (wir hatten auch einen Mode-Blog Boom!), aber Formate wie Pinterst, Tumbler und Twitpic haben sich schon längst etabliert, lassen Blogs überholt aussehen und haben Blogs meiner Meinung nach sogar überholt! Nichtsdestotrotz wird dieser Blog nach wie vor bestehen bleiben! Einfach weil viel Arbeit und viele (gute) Erinnerungen dran hängen!

Hello Everyone!

It's been a while since I've posted something. More than two months! I was quite busy and also not really in the mood to post something! I also have to admit that I've been cheating on Blogger with Tumblr Nevertheless I've got the feeling that blogs start to come to an end since new formats like Tumblr, Pinterest or Twitpic work very efficient and are accessible to everyone, everywhere from any device! However, this blog is not coming to an end, because it was a lot of work to create and maintain it and I have a lot of (good) memories here!

H&M Designer Collaboration part X

H&M has given us designer collections several times a year for quite a while now! We had the Versace Resort collection (which was awful!) and the Marni collection (which was ok!) this year already and we know who is going to be the next Designer!

I am a bit surprised, but I was also surprised that Comme des Garcons did a collection so I should probably stop being surprised :D

But see for yourself ;)

100th Anniversary of the Titanic tragedy!

100th years ago Titanic, the biggest vessel on earth sank! We know Titanic hit an iceberg but we don't really know what exactly happend! There are a lot of theories out there!

But what we know is that it is more than just a tragedy, that cost more than 1500 lives! It is a metapher for the 'life' itself! We never know what is going to happen next, and next to that it is also a symbol of human arrogance! Isn't it!

I am going to watch the Movie tomorrow in IMAX 3D and I am super excited! It's going to be great (I think!)

Take care guys!

Happy Hunger Games

"The Hunger Games" is a young-adult, dystopian novel written by Suzan Collins. The Hunger Games are an annual televised event where the Capitol selects one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and 18 from each of the twelve districts of Panem, putting them against each other in a game of survival where they are forced to fight one another to the death.
The cast fotographed for the us Vanity Fare!
I saw the Movie today (I was REALLY excited) and I have to say, that it's a good film adaption but there are some things that had could be done better or let's say, in a different way.

First of all I think hat everything happens quite too fast! Important things like relationships between charakters happen kinda briefly and partly to unemotional.

...Another mayor thing I have to mention are the mutations...which are bloodthirsty dogs...come on!Mr. Ross!No!No!No! -.-

However, Gary Ross did a job and I am looking forward to see the second part, "Caching Fire", which is coming November 2013!

In the meanwhile I'll read the second and third book :D

by the way, If you love the novel you should check this!

It’s also a smartphone

OMG, Nokia just nailed it at the mobile congress 2012 in Barcelona!

Everyone was waiting for something big, a real "game changer"! And they gave us not only a "game changer" they gave us a monster! The Nokia 808 pure view features a mutherf#%*!/ 41 megapixel sensor with Nokia's highest performance Carl Zeiss optics to date and their brand-new pixel oversampling technology. This is hardcore!

But this combination isn’t focused on shooting pictures the size of billboards! It is about creating amazing pictures at normal, manageable sizes like five or eight megapixels. That gives us a combination of benefits like using oversampling to combine up to seven pixels into one “pure” pixel, to eliminate the visual noise found on other mobile phone cameras. Another benefit is that you can zoom in up to 3X without losing any of the details in your shot. Next to that you can use ‘Creative Shooting Mode’ to capture images at high resolution – 38 megapixels. This mode gives you the possibility to reframe, crop and zoom to find the best “picture within the picture”.

The phone features a four-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display. A 1.3GHz processor, 512 RAM, 16 GB internal user memory, with support for MicroSD cards up to 32GB and it comes in three colours. I don't know which colour but I know that this will be my next camera...eh sorry, phone! :D

BAM!

Mary is printing again!

Hello people of the world,

sorry for the delay on the Mary Katrantzou Review, had a rough week!

As I said in my last post, I think that her AW 12/13 collection is a massive improvement in every way. Great patterns, amazing prints and I love the silhouettes, a lot of attention to the hips!

This time Mary and her team focused on turning common objects like spoons, pencils, watches and a typewriter into amazing prints. Most of them where blowen up and disaffected. Look # 22 shows a huge watch which turned in some kind of belt. This Look features also a lot of embroidery witch is another focus in this collection. Since they had a great response from the SS 12 collection I think they will use embroidery more often from now on. But the embroidery was not only made out of Swarowski crystals, they used actual pencils for Look # 15, which I think makes this look one of the key pieces.

I really liked the show and I think that she is evolving in a good way!

Look # 3
Look # 9Look # 15, pencils everywhere! "Sprinter Fritz"Look # 18, the typewriterLook # 22, "the watch on my waist"Look # 30,Look # 32,

enjoy the show

Burberry Prorsum AW 12 womenswear

London Fashion Week is kicking ass (again)! I just saw Mary Katrantzou and it's a massive improvement to her SS 11 collection! But let's talk about Burberry Prorsum today and I'll review Mary Kantrantzou Tomorrow.

Christopher Bailey showed his AW collection on monday and the focus was the "least favorite part of most women’s anatomy" says Suzy Mankes from 'The New York Times'. Next to that she is asking a very interesting question: "Could umbrellas be the new handbags?". They actually could! We've seen them already in the mensshow one month ago. But I doubt that one brand has such a big influence to make an umbrella the new "it"-accessory!

The Collection focused on a sophisticated city-style with a twist of town and field elements, such as field jackets, heavy wool fabrics, animal prints, gilded fox heads as clasps on handbags and handles of umbrellas. It also seams to me, that Christopher loves belts! Almost every style was belted!

My favorite Part is the second section of the collection, which starts with the second song called "Walls" by Rae Morris!!

Enjoy the show!

Louboutin vs. Burberry Prorsum

The modern man is wearing bags for "ages" now (which is a good thing by the way). The clutch, or as some of us call it 'the document holder', is one of the most preffered styles of this common phenomenon. This style comes in different shapes, colours, fabrics and with different trimmings.
So it was inevitable that at some point spikes will find their way on 'document holders'. I don't really know if Burberry was the first Brand to do so for a men's bag! But they did it for the upcoming A/W 12/13 collection as well as Christian Louboutin recently for the S/S 12 collection. Which one do you prefer ?

The exotic dinner party

Since everything goes digital and gets faster and faster, we don't get only print campaigns, we get campaign videos as well! Prada, Burberry and Lanvin is doing it for a while now! Givenchy startet last winter with their first video campaign featuring the panther and rottweiler prints!

As I postet the Prada campaign video the other day, here you get Lanvins "festive and exotic dinner party" featuring Maxine Ashley song "Cookie Man" (produced by Pharrell Williams)

:)



ps: I don't like the snakes! Don't you agree that that "snakes on models" is done now!)

Enjoy!
