You all probably know that I am a fan of spectacular and excentric outfits. Well, I have to confess: sometimes at home I simply wear just a T-shirt to feel more comfortable and to concentrate more on my writing. You are all shocked? Don’t be! I am obviously wearing verrrrry special T-shirts, preferably by local designers. One of my favourites is the banana dick T-shirt I was wearing in episode 1 of my little web series The Fruit Salad from the Berlin-based label Universal Poison. Founded by the lovely Spanish illustrator Ana Pla and her partner E.M. Waty this label sells just hand painted T-shirts. Can you imagine? The bananas on my T-shirts are painted by HAND!!!! So every T-shirt is a unique art work. On their website you can browse through the online shop and look at all their motives. A lot of the T-shirts are sold out in the web shop, but I think Ana is always accepting orders from people living in Berlin. After the jump their are the look book pictures, which I also really enjoy because they are a great combination of funny and colorful still being sexy and dark. See for yourself.
Today I have to tell you a true story about an unique Berlin encounter. I was sitting in a restaurant with a friend eating when a group of amazing people all dressed up in the most shiny and colorful wardrobe entered. I was totally blown away and approached the girl who seemed to be the queen of the group! I stand in front of her and asked her: Who are you? She looked upon me and said: “Hi, I am Anto! Anto Christ!”
People! Can you imagine? I felt like the fashion apocalypse was ready to strike. But then she smiled and told me more about her fashion designs and her artwork. Anto Christ is from Australia and living in Berlin for a couple of years now. She is regulary doing exhibitions, art events and also hosting parties. I fell really in love with her style and with her amazing creations of knit and crochet you can see also on her homepage. After the jump you will see some more pictures of her and her styles. All very colorful and definetly fruity. Check them out.
Oh. My. God. This collection is out of control! It’s like it was especially made only for me! Fruits and fruits all over. I’m in love and I want it all! Spanish designer Krizia Robustella (what a name!) really knows her fruits. And I would have loved to interview all the handsome male models backstage at the 080 Barcelona Fashion Week and ask them about their favorite fruits like I did at the Marc Stone show here in Berlin. Guys, really, I LOVE this collection and it’s called Bananas is my Business, can you believe it? It’s just perfect…
O.M.G. We got a full page feature in the last issue of zitty Berlin. It’s so amazing! It’s out of control! Speaking about amazing: Jeans jumpsuits are not only this season’s favourite thing to wear, they are an all time fun-piece you can combine with a lot of colorful accessories. And with a lot, I mean a lot. I put a nice ribbon belt on my hips, wore a necklace made out of pens and a headpiece made out of a wind wheel to complete the outfit. Enjoy more of me in animated GIFs after the jump.
Yeay, I have my very own Fruit Salad website now here on I HEART BERLIN where you can watch all my episodes and find all my articles. It’s amazing and totally ingenious. Speaking about ingenious, when I was trying on my outfit for the shooting of the first episode, I had an ingenious idea. Would I look better with another head on top of me? I mean, seriously, what could be a better accessory then a whole head on your head. Well, I am not the only genius, because Charlie Le Mindu thought the same thing. The name of my head is Lola. Lola is from South America and she feels really cold here in Berlin so I had to give her a little woolthingy to feel better.
If you want to know more about my outfit: The crazy pattern dress is from Otto and all the rest is some vintage stuff I bought at several fleamarkets. See more photos and animated GIFs of the outfit after the jump.
I love big hair. More hair you have more fun you are on the dance floor. There is nothing more electric than a girl who can show off her massive hair. If you don’t have so much, you don’t have to worry my dear fashionistas. The superman of wigs Charlie Le Mindu was in town for Fashion Week and we were all really impressed by his beautiful hair sculptures. His show Gold Sabah at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival over the pool of Badeschiff was BEYOND. I wanted to have nearly all his beautiful head pieces for my upcoming episodes. And well, maybe I will. See some backstage pictures and a video of his show after the jump.
If fashion week is war, runway is the battlefield. And I did a good portion of fights last week to go to each event and make sure that everybody noticed that I was there. Is this egomanic? I do’t think so. To see all my adventures at Berlin Fashion Week and to see the shows I visited and enjoyed the most (Patrick Mohr, Moga e Mago, The Shit, Lena Hoschek, Mark Stone and the best of them all Charlie Le Mindu) please have a look at the third episode called Runway after the jump.
Fashion Week is over and I am quiet down, even with this great weather in town. But no time for complaints because there is still a lot of articles to write and a lot of outfits to show you. For now be ready for the second episode of my juicy series called “Party”. In this episode I visited together with my camera team the Dandy Diary Pool Party. We had an amazing time with free drinks, some interesting and some crazy people to talk to and a lot of sexual tension between me and David from Dandy Diary. I even met the Fashion God of Berlin. Can you imagine? Maybe I had one or two drinks too much, but no, there is never too much when it’s for free, right? See for yourself, after the jump and share my video if you like it.

After spending the whole day in the Fashion Week tent on Tuesday watching tiny skeleton girls running down the catwalk I was quite happy to go to The Shit Shop fashion show of Bonnie Strange and her girls Lena and Laura. It will not surprise you that I don’t like skinny girls on the catwalk very much. Not because I think all models are anorexic or having an eating disorder. I just don’t understand why there is only one type of body on the catwalk. Actually, it simply bores me to see 30 long skinny girls one after another. In my opinion I would appreciate the creativity of a designer much more if he would be able to show his design on different types of people. Some designers did this during fashion week like Patrick Mohr (which I will write about soon) and Bonnie Strange. It felt like a fresh stormy breath. What I think about Bonnie’s collection comes after the jump.
Fashion Week is nearly over. But wait, there is one person I want to present you before all my fruits are back in the closet: Tata Christiane. This amazing artist just makes me gaga. She is not only one of the most talented and colorful fashion designers in town. She has also a band together called Aniaetleprogrammeur. The music is very dark and somehow haunted. A perfect clash with the color and print magic she is doing on all here designs and dresses. On my street style day in Wedding I was wearing one of here outfits and a headpiece she designed. Also, on the first day of Fashion Week I was wearing a unisex piece from Tata. There I met another blogger called Max Bonheur who was wearing one of her outfits, too. Tonight she is doing a fashion installation and a party. My fruitiest singer Peaches will have a DJ set there along with Tata, Charlie Le Mindu and Vava Dudu so dont miss it. More information are in our event guide. After the jump some of my best poses in Tata’s amazing dresses.
