Simple black pumps are a must-have in every woman’s shoe closet. They match with everything and work at all occasion. However, they can also be kind of boring sometimes. That’s why we’ve added some fun and colorful stripes on our black HUGO pumps for the Spring 2013 season. I love surprising details, how about you?!
PS: The pimped-up-pointed-pumps are now available in our stores, so watch out!
If you are following me on twitter and instagram you know that since Thursday I’ve been in Berlin for the 63rd Berlinale Film Festival providing you with glamorous red carpet shots and regular updates from my little pop-up showroom here in Berlin. Hence the silence on the HUGO Blog. But in order to keep you, my dear blog readers, also in the loop of what’s happening on the red carpet at the Berlinale, here’s a picture I would definitely put into the category “best dressed” – it’s actor Florian David Fitz in HUGO. The slim fit HUGO suit goes so well with the slim tie and his smile does the rest. Agree? See more shots from the red carpet on facebook and stay tuned for more insights in the following days.

Paris in the house again! This time via London. Morgan Hammer, a Paris-based female artist, presents us her first EP on Matt Walsh’s Clouded Vision imprint and we’re pretty impressed!

You all know that I am addicted to twitter. I think that it’s the perfect channel to share the latest news and insights with you and to let you sneak a peek into the world of HUGO BOSS. So whenever I meet interesting people who are not tweeting I do my best to convince them to get an account up and running. And so I am more than happy that our HUGO Menswear designer Bart de Backer is now posting from his twitter account on a regular basis. And no, there’s no ghost writer or PR strategist behind it. It really is Bart himself tweeting. Take the picture as proof and follow our amazing and inspiring creative mind on twitter!
Friend of (the) house Jacques Renault can do no wrong in our book! The Brooklyn-based DJ, Producer, Let’s Play House-co-owner and jacques of all trades is back at it again for 2013, providing us with a stunning double A-side on his own imprint. “Back To You” is the type of disco influenced house banger that comes to light, when one’s not some knucklehead with a wifi modem, but a classically trained musician with a bullet-proof understanding of dance music. The release features a remix by Parisian bearers of hope “Paradis”, who’ve already put out amazing stuff on Beats in Space and who manage to live up to all high expectations once again. We have the Paradis remix right here as a free limited download! You should put this on your portable device and play it while heading over to your local record store to pick up also the vinyl record… Talk about a no-brainer!

Countless artists have expressed their appreciation for the city of love in versatile ways. Usually, this circumstance is a pretty good indicator for quality works of art – since one doesn’t just dedicate any type of output to a place so special. Mexico’s 22-year-old boy wonder La Royale joins this tradition in an appropriate manner: “Paris” on top notch imprint Electrique Music delivers just the pulsating big city groove one’d expect! Stream it right here and try to get your hands on this release in order to have it at your disposal on the road. Since, typically for Paris, it does the job wherever you are. To quote the great Hemingway: “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”
