It has been almost ten years since Juergen Teller last shot an editorial for a german magazine. ZEITmagazin comes with the german weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT and they always have a high standard in regards of photography. Juergen Teller is a long-time contributor. He used to have a weekly column where he would show one photo of his archive and write a little bit about that moment shown on the photo. Since he stopped doing that I am glad that he shot the special fashion issue, which ZEITmagazin releases biannually. Current it-model Andrej Pejic, who walked Jean Paul Gaultier's haute couture finale this season, is the face of the editorial – yes, it is a guy. You can see all photos here.

New York fashion week is going to end tonight and the fashion crowd is moving on to London. While I didn't have time to watch most of the livestreams, I made sure to have a look at all the photos that appeared on style.com the day after. The designers from New York are often pretty young compared to the ones in Milan and Paris so the collections feel very fresh. I am so glad that Olivier Theyskens is back on the fashion week schedule. Here are my favourites in alphabetical order. I might update this entry tomorrow depending on how good the Calvin Klein collection is going to be. Tell me your favourites in the comments.
Acne Paper is still my favourite magazine. Issue no 11 was released a couple of weeks ago. Every issue is about a certain theme and this one is the studio issue. As usual there are several editorial shoots in this issue and lots and lots of interviews with artists or people about their creative space and explore the connection between creativity and environment. This issue is the biggest so far with 50 pages more than the last one. You can order it online here. I'm still missing Acne Paper No 1 and 3 to have the complete collection. If anyone knows where I could get them, please contact me via mail. Below some impressions from the current Issue No 11.
Here are two photos from my trip to Milan. The first one totally looks like it could be a scenery from a film by Wes Anderson. More will appear on my Visual Diary once I have scanned and edited the ones I like.
Secondhand Cord Shirt by Ralph Lauren, Denim Workwear Jacket & Bag by Albam, Chino Pants by Topman, Shoes by Rachel Comey
I am still in Milan (until next Tuesday) but I was able to take some pictures. This was my outfit from today. When I visited London last week, I fell in love with the clothes by Albam. They offer classic wardrobe pieces for men but in their own way or how they call it: Modern Crafted Clothing. They are trying to produce their clothes as close to England as possible. The prices are very reasonable and the quality of the fabric and finish are top-notch. I can't even say what I liked in particular because I basically wanted to buy everything. And I also can't stop raving about them.
Another beautiful editorial by Lina Scheynius for Dazed & Confused February 2011. There is another shot in the magazine, which I really liked but didn't find on the internet. Have a look when you get the chance. I am currently in Milan, that is why blog updates are coming really slowly until next week.
