Happy Tuesday beautiful people! One of the superpowers of being based in Los Angeles is the absolutely gorgeous weather, temperature and closeness to miles of beautiful beaches. This weekend we took to the sand and welcomed the summer with bubbles and SPF 30 to start the new season with a gentle tan. While on the beach, scanning the latest Vogue UK editorials we came across some lush inspiration from Alexander Wangs muse and German model Anna Ewers (Vogue DE cover March 2015). The spread perfectly mirrored our feeling for beach fashion this summer giving life to blue ocean backdrops, salty hair and airy white blouses with 70s attic finds like crochet shorts and off the shoulder crop tops in rust, off-white and black lycra swimwear.
What we love about this look is the absolute ease at which you can pull it together. Who doesnt have a pair of black bikini bottoms and a white shirt? Then all you need is your farmers market tote, last years summer sandals (yes! to worn in already) and the ocean will do the rest for tan and salty hair. It will be a beautiful summer guys!

During Berlin fashion week a lot more goes on than just the runway shows.
The international trade show ‘Bread & Butter‘ are showcasing their annual trade fair for street and urban wear, the plus-size fashion fair ‘curvy is sexy’ as well as the ‘PREMIUM‘ and ‘SHOW&ORDER‘ ordering platforms are all taking place along with Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
Jil Sander, Hugo Boss, Escada and Phillip Plein are some of the leading international brands from the German market, however there are some well established designers
that are climbing the expansion ladder right now!
Meet Michael Sontag, a young aspiring designer who took a break from last FW is back with a signature look of flowy kaftans and draped dresses along with some oversized knits and statement details.
This time the models were donning soaked hair and flip flops when coming down the runway drenched in a yellow dramatic light that gave the impression of a late summer sun setting.
Michaels strongest side is how he works with silk and he has created a name for him self based on those creations alone.
He likes to describe his collections as his ‘work’ rather than collections with contrasts between the seasons and he also doesn’t like to abide by trends and let forecasts determine his creations. He believes the process is the most important part of creating and to be able to express himself, which is also the reason he became a designer in the first place.
