Pipka Pipka is both a fashion brand and a creative collective of five east-european influenced girls. Last week they got together and served up a brilliant show that was more art than fashion – in a good way. They've chosen the GOLEM bar as their location, it's a dark and smoke infused speak-easy in the harbor of Hamburg that serves a mean old fashion and has a dance cellar hiding behind a secret door. There was live piano music and chanson singing girls to set the right atmosphere for Pipka Pipka's crazy outfits. From Barbie doll garnished dresses to a sportswear collection for Nuns – the things on show were both conceptual and visually stunning. All together it was just about the most refreshing fashion show I've attended. Not that I've been to many though.
Herr von Eden keeps rocking the world of well suited and booted gentleman by the opening their first bespoke tailoring atelier last night in a swanky location in Hamburg. I strolled down to sneak a peek and wasn't disappointed – it's the kind of place I'd love to buy a suit at. Yet, for an art director this is both curse and blessing as the amount of options and combinations is limitless. Bravo.
I've been living in Hamburg for the past months, working for a start-up with a new social photo application. All that is temporary until Robbin and I get our next gig somewhere else and the right place comes along. For now I'm enjoying the sun and seaside of Hamburg.
