Costom Desert Boots - Post #7

On my trip to Milan, I visited the insider shopping street, Corsa di Porto Ticinese, in the historic city part. There I immediatelly fell in love with a comic-print shoe, I saw in this shop called Panca's Designer.

Apparently, the owner of the shop produces shoes in the original 'Clarks Shoes' design with own fabrics, like in my case, a gray leather with comic prints.

Unfortunately, the shop has no web presence and no online store, so the custom shoes are only available in their only store in Corsa di Port Ticinese 98.

Milan: Street Style - Post #6

I went to Milan this weekend and found out more about Milanese fashion, culture, art and history. I will post what fascinated me in Italy's fashion capital. Let's start with street style.
I didn't have enough time to concentrate much on street style photographs, but I did get to shoot some pictures.
These are my first street style picture, so I'm not very experienced. Hope they're good!

1 Cool Tee, 2 Styles - Post #4

Today was a nice and sunny spring day, so I decided to take same photos of me with one of my favorite tees, The V-neck with pocket. So I went in our garden, and my sister, revealing her talent for photography, took some really good shots of me using the same shirt in two completely different ways.

Stylish Shoes For Spring - Post #3

The Converse All Stars had their comeback as cool spring and summer shoes some years ago. I like the casual, old school design, but in my opinion, it's time to breath new live in the spring/summer sneakers department. So I started to search for alternatives and found some really stylish, laid-back shoes. Here is a list of six kinds of shoes, that have the potential to be as popular as the 20' classic.

Freitag Bags - Post #2

Just recently, I bought one of these Freitag Bags, made from used truck tarps, safety belts and bicycle tubes. These bags, which are extremely popular in Switzerland, but barely known outside Europe, are made in the city of Zürich, were the two brothers Daniel and Markus Freitag started producing their first bags in 1993. But enough of brand history, let's jump to the bag itself.

The bag I chose is called Dragnet, as it's claimed to be the best for school. Every bag is unique, as the truck tarps, which are sold by companies, that don't need them anymore, are unique. The design of the bag is sleek and doesn't distract form the patter or text on the fabric. The Bag is also unbelievably durable and weather resistant.
As it is made out of used materials, the bag is a bit dirty and has a strong smell, that fortunately vanishes after some weeks. The price of 220.- Swiss Francs (about 240 USD) is really worth it, as the bags are trendy but also something special.

Ordering is easy on

Sailing Adventure - Post #1

Finally I am ready and I set up my first blog, apart from the blog I had during my trip to the States last summer, where I realized how MUCH fun I have blogging. 
In the past months I got really fascinated by fashion, style and design, reading various blogs such as Dapper Lou and Fashion Bits and Bobs and subscribing to the GQ magazine.

I have to admit, I have not a lot of experience in fashion, but I thought I'll just start and learn as my blog makes progress. 
So I'll just start with my first set of clothes made on the AWSOME webservice Polyvore, where you can create your own set of clothes from various brands and share it on Twitter, Facebook or your blog.
