A DEPARTURE FROM THE EVERYDAY

We're in love with the designs and silhouettes of MAX THOMAS SANDERSON, dedicated to contemporary, artisanal tailoring for all genders. Each garment bears a distinctive signature resulting from formal training in bespoke tailoring, and is designed, cut and made in-house. We had a little chat with Max Thomas Sanderson about creativity, inspiration, and of course love.

WITH GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL

FRAU TONIS PARFUM stands for high-quality manufactured perfumes and has been letting fragrances speak for themselves since 2011 - without sex sells campaigns, gender bias or decorative celebrities. 36 niche perfumes from green to floral, citric or oriental open the olfactory memory of their wearers and bring magical memories back to the present. We had a little chat with founder Stefanie Hanssen.

DESIGN IS NOT AN INDIVIDUAL SPORT

FLORIAN B. MÁTHÉ is a Berlin-based designer and performer specializing in latex as a medium of unapologetically queer and artistic expression. His goal is to combine performance art, fetish and high fashion. With his desire to question the concepts of beauty, the body and aesthetics as his main motivation, he aims to convey vibrancy, simplicity and emotion in the context of fashion.

PLAY BY YOUR OWN RULES

Play by your own rules and look damn good doing it. Sounds great, right? Skin care that adapts to our lifestyle, not the other way around. SWYPE Cosmetics believes that we don't have to choose between flawless skin and a fast-paced lifestyle. The brand's mission is to provide the best beauty care that allows us to do whatever we want. And we want it all.

DECONSTRUCT THE CONCEPT OF MINORITY

KIDS OF THE DIASPORA is a poetic fashion movement that invites everyone to embrace themselves and not to compromise their personality and appearance. It is a safe haven for all who are in search of identity and gives people the freedom to belong to a community of like-minded people. Regardless of gender, sexual interest, heritage and color.

FOR ANY NON-ACTIVITY

There is something new from KUST. A lounge suit in 4 bright colors. Just right for the cozy season. It is the ultimate uniform for any activity, no matter what time of year. Or is it called for any non-activity in times of home office and social distancing? Handmade from soft, lush viscose silk from Poland, KUST. sets minimalist retro sport style. For indoor, outdoor, every door.

EVERYTHING STARTS WITH MUSIC

[anatol], meaning „the one that comes from the orient“, was founded by Deniz Oeztuna in 2018. By emphasizing the mergence of diverse cultures and attitudes and by focusing on aesthetics and building bridges where they are missing, his vision is to create wearable artworks by collaborating with contemporary artists from various disciplines each season, bringing contrary topics together to a single concept.

KALOS KAGATHOS

FRNKOW is a lifestyle and fashion brand for men founded in 2020 by Nadja and Frank Lin. Their first collection, MANIFESTO, was inspired by the ancient greek ideal „Kaloskagathos“ and the idea that boys and young men should be led not only to spiritual, but also to moral and physical beauty.

EULOGY

We are in love with the designs of WILLY CHAVARRIA, a New York based conceptual fashion label with a cinematic approach to design and presentation, and their latest collection, titled EULOGY. They describe it as "the story of a beautiful funeral for the planet earth as we observe the final days we have remaining on a planet in swift threat of environmental destruction by man."

RADICALLY NATURAL

TERRORISTS OF BEAUTY fight what the beauty industry stands for: perfect bodies, complex treatments. Male, female. Chemical ingredients. Animal testing. Plastic. Micro plastic. Overconsumption. They proclaim a new and uncompromising eco-movement that begins in the bathroom. That is their weapon to make you and the world more beautiful.

REALITY IS NOT A FACT

The current situation has changed the daily life for many of us. It makes us think and hopefully makes us grow. To contribute a small part to this NADS.STUDIO is producing a limited number of masks according to the zero waste principle. Every second mask is donated.

BE BETTER THAN YOU USED TO BE

We love Polish underwear label KUST. They just unveiled their 2020 Holiday campaign, FAIR GIFTS FROM KUST. We had a little chat with founder Kuba Stachowiak about the brand, his vision and the message behind it - and of course about love! Enjoy reading our interview and getting a first look at the new collection.

MY TWO LIVES IN ONE BOOK

In his new book, Florian Hetz puts together two images – two worlds, a dialogue between two opposites or two photos that tell a story. We did a little interview with him to dive into his universe and to hear what he has to say about his new book ZWEI.

MAYBE WITH A BIT OF POETRY

Chloe Rosser is a photographer living in London. In her series FORM & FUNCTION, Chloe transforms the body into fleshy sculptures that allow her and us to look at the human body differently. We had a few questions about the project and about Chloe's work in general.

MORE SELF LOVE

Every crisis needs the perfect outfit. This summer, Milan based designer Nicola Indelicato shows us how to cover your mouth and nose in a fashionable and sexy way… and what else to wear. Have fun looking through his Lookbook and reading our little conversation with him.
