House heads all around the world are pinning their hopes on Australian DJ and Producer Tornado Wallace – and he doesn’t consider letting them down for a second! His newest Vinyl EP on ESP Institute (founded by the incredible Lovefingers) proves just that. Intelligently produced dance music that stimulates both – your rational and your emotional brain. Flanked by a beautiful artwork – what more could you ask for? Superb!
Spotted in London last week: Kate Beckinsale trying to escape the paparazzi in an eye-catching blue HUGO coat. What can we learn from this snapshot? Lesson 1: Black and blue works perfectly together. Lesson 2: Getting caught in a chic outfit is better than slipping away unnoticed.
Manhooker are Guiddo (DJ/Producer) and Mavin (Singer/Songwriter). They’re based in Berlin and for their first release, they receive support by legendary Ostgut Ton (the label behind the Berghain/Panorama Bar-family) and Cologne’s legendary Kompakt empire. Given all of that, it wouldn’t catch anyone off guard if this would be a house record in the word’s most classical sense, would it? Download the track right here and put your body in it! So, you’ll use the rhythm, and you dance and sing along, while you’re drowning in the song…
These runway looks can actually make it to your closet! A small selection of seven womenswear and seven menswear looks from the HUGO Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Show is now available in selected stores and online. I’ve already picked my favorite womenswear looks on Saturday and now it’s time to serve the gentlemen. So here are my four personal highlight looks from the menswear section – the first two white and grey looks are very clean and reduced and the other two looks are more flamboyant and eye-catching. But there’s one thing all these looks have in common: They’re contemporary and progressive and therefore signature looks of the HUGO brand. I do love them all, how about you?!
Chelsea Wolfe hails from California’s capitol Sacramento and has already released three full-length LPs, with her latest being a collection of acoustic songs entitled “Unknown Rooms”. She now resides in Los Angeles and still likes to steal our heart with her expressive voice. Lust For Youth from Sweden cleverly turned the original of “Flatlands” into a stirring electro-goth track. Check it out right here, as we’re truly impressed by it!
Whenever I am watching a fashion show I try to imagine the runway looks in everyday life – at the office, on the street, at the supermarket or the cinema. Most of the runway highlights of the couture houses are not made for everyday life. It’s different with HUGO though. And that’s exactly why I love the HUGO collections so much – the looks are perfect for a big entrance on the runway and at the office – at least if you are not afraid of trends. So last year we started to select a few runway looks and sold them in our stores and online. The so-called HUGO Fashion Show Pieces were a huge success and so this season we’re doing it again. You can now shop a few highlight looks from the runway of the HUGO Fashion Show Spring/Summer 2013 in our online stores and in selected stores worldwide. Here are my three favorite looks for women. If you scroll down you’ll find the selected stores carrying the HUGO Fashion Show Pieces. On Monday I will show you my favorites from the menswear section. Oh, and if you still have any questions about the looks or how to get your hands on them, just tweet me.
The HUGO Fashion Show Pieces are available online and at the following stores:
Germany: HUGO Store Berlin and HUGO Store Düsseldorf
France: HUGO Store Paris
UK: HUGO Store London
USA: HUGO Store New York and HUGO Store Aventura
Japan: HUGO Store Osaka
Italy: HUGO Store Milan
Belgium: HUGO Store Antwerps
You can find all the store details in the HUGO BOSS Store Locator.
The title “Essential” really hits the nail right on the head: Crimea X are legendary Italian Producer and DJ Rocca and Jukka Reverberi. Rocca has been around for quite a while and some of you know him as a part of Ajello or from his great works he did with Dimitri from Paris. With his partner Jukka Reverberi, he of course does was he does best: pumping disco-influenced house music. Richard Norris aka The Time And Space Machine gives “Essential” the remix treatment it deserves, turning it into a synthetic yet soulful sea of us for us to drown in… Let’s get lost!
Yesterday I treated myself to this HUGO bag in a fabulous greenish turquoise color. Mint and turquoise pastel shades are my new favorite colors for spring. Fresh and sweet like candy!
Holland’s own Danny Wolfers aka Legowelt is nothing short of a legend in the world of electronic music! He has been impressing both critics and fans for well over a decade now with his groundbreaking productions. Always hard to categorize and always heavily influenced by his love for synthesizers, they’re first and foremost: never boring. Check out his new track “Visions In My Mind” right here and be inspired!
Today I would like to show you two more stunning looks I spotted at the HUGO BOSS Berlinale Party last week. First up is German actress Jennifer Ulrich’s HUGO Spring 2013 look. The mix of bright pink and black is so much fun and great if you want to stand out from the crowd.
The second outfit I’d like to show you is actress Sandra von Ruffin’s look – a sheer blouse with printed pants from the HUGO Spring 2013 collection. I love sheer blouses, but I have to admit that they are quite difficult to wear. I recommend a simple camisole top underneath (business) or a lovely bra (party). Actress Sandra von Ruffin went for a simple bra turning the rather understated look into a sexy party outfit and gets full marks on my style scorecard!
