I first wanted to write a blog entry about the Young At Art fashionshow I attended to last Friday, but all the pictures I've found on the web by other bloggers or photographers were too bad to be shown in my opinion. Unfortunately, I didn't make any but they would have turned out bad anyway from my seat. My highlight of the evening: one guy ran after me after I left the fashionshow to tell me that he and his friend (who's currently in London) both really liked my blog. Thank you, it's really nice to hear that in person and contact me on Facebook in case you're reading this.
Anyway, here are some random old film black and white frames from last year. Next up: streetstyle, outfit entry, sunday pictures, inspiration.
Today is supposed to be one of my Sunday entries, but my digital camera just broke yesterday and that's why I am going to re-schedule my entries a bit. I usually don't feature brands or their collection's lookbook pictures except when I am really thrilled by their clothes. Collection Of Style (COS) is such an exception. Launched in 2007, COS is a progeny of H&M and merges high fashion attributes, such as very good fabrics, finish and fit, with a pretty low level pricing. Unfortunately, there's no online shop and only a few stores exclusively in Europe.
Acne Paper is my most favourite magazine. It's the combination of beautiful photographs, that I could spend hours with just looking at, perfect styling and interesting in-depth articles and interviews, all fitted into an A3-sized magazine. Every issue is dedicated to one main theme. The most recent one (issue no. 8) is all about Eroticism.
"Have a flick through an issue of the paper and it’s like scoring an afternoon in the Central St.Martins library. Interesting, provocative fashion articles are a plenty and interview subjects range from top name intellectuals to topless models." – Dazed Digital
"For us, it’s very much about mixing history with contemporary – merging high and popular culture, young and old, not to mention having a personal voice is important to us" – Thomas Persson (editor in chief and creative director of Acne Paper)

I think it's always challenging to make a dark outfit work on warmer days or summer in general. I'm still grateful, that Zara made such a beautiful blazer affordable, even the lining is perfect for rolled up sleeves. And I somehow wanted to wear my jersey scarf with this outfit. If I had just worn it around my neck it would have been too hot, so I decided to make a big bow tie out of it.
I am still catching up with all the internet stuff (questions, interviews, blog entries), that I couldn't do while my Mac was being repaired. I've created this category of Sunday entries to write about things, that don't need to be related to fashion like the rest on my blog. So I'm leaving you with a selection of pictures from the Biennale 2009 in Venice.
