Now that I have finally overcome the jet lag from my travels, I start my California image diary with pictures from one of L.A.’s better nightlife establishments, Part Time Punks. Though the night wasn’t the best of what the club can offer, we ended up having our own fun playing with a cutout figure of the mighty Rozz Williams, and later on in the night with my own camera capturing the spirit(s) of the night.

If you have been wondering about the silence on this blog, well, lately I have felt like there is really no point in blabbing about superficial things like fashion when there are much more serious things going on around the globe. Hence no showing of recent purchases or new outfits in some time.
However, I wanted to show these pictures from my Paris travels that I made back in January for some time now, but was waiting for the right moment to hit my poetic vein. I figured that when the times are tough, it’s nice to remember the moments that we can be happy about, like this little detour that my German friend Dirk and I made from the men’s fashion week to the amazing Maison Le Roche by Le Corbusier. If you are in Paris and want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the more touristic attractions, then this place should be on your must see list.
Dated back to the 1920’s, this beautiful house stands in the outskirts of Paris, near the Jasmin metro station (prepare to walk a bit, the neighborhood is a must see of its own). We celebrated this event with a little bit of bubbly which made the trip much more jolly, and spot things that might go otherwise unnoticed like cool street names and delicate sunlight hitting the Parisian streets. Oh Paris, how I miss it all already.

I still haven’t fully recovered from the sleep deprivation caused by all the crazy partying I did in Berlin, but I’m slowly getting united with what was left behind on Thursday. Introducing here my new hooded Boris Bidjan Saberi cardigan which I, after taking a long view, acquired from my absolute favorite Berlin boutique, Darklands, on the day of our arrival. This pretty little number is made of bamboo and is so soft and comfortable that I spent the rest of my four day mini vacation literally living and almost sleeping in it. The only time I gave it a little rest was on Saturday, when the sun was beaming from a blue sky, making it too hot to even wear a shirt for that matter. So yes, our destiny is sealed, we are pretty much inseparable now and will stick together through thick and thin, until unraveling threads (I hope never) do us apart.
