Return to surrender

If not for the perfect climate, Southern California is always a good place to catch artists that would rarely enter the European soil. Tonight I’m going to see Tamaryn and the Raveonettes play at a local bar here in the O.C., and it should be at least interesting. Tamaryn’s ethereal sound caught me and entered my playlists in 2009 when her single “Return to Surrender” came out, blowing my mind completely. If you don’t believe my appraisal, listen to it yourself. This, still a bit unknown artist, is someone definitely worth checking out.

From 2011/2012 to 1923/1925

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.
