Not unlike the metropolises of Berlin or Milan Vienna’s fashion scene is bubbling bold and visionary. Its young local local designers and zeitgeist-driven traditional handicrafts all ad pizazz to the city of music, transforming it into a stylish melting pot. For travellers exploring the city, a visit to these internationally-driven concept stores is a must….Continue Reading “here and there”
I hate shopping pants. There always is a part about this type of garment that just doesn’t seem to fit right. That’s one reason why I like to shop jeans second hand. My besties are Marshall’s dating back to the (I guess) 60ies having had their revival in the (I guess) 90ies-Baywatch-heyday.

Sparkling glitter upgrades a daily outfit making the look more funky and exceptional. Best way to wear it during the day is the glamheel-socks combo. Jeans and a sweater bring the look down to earth.
Here you see me wearing a long knit dress by Esprit, which I combined with a vintage Burberry trench from Burggasse24. I particularly like the effect of isochromatic mix-and-match. To loosen up the style I like to wear coats shoulder-down, while by tying them around your waistline it looks more go-go. Special thanks go to Martin Phox,…Continue Reading “Isochromatic Mix”
