Violet Chachki on the Runway at Moschino F/W 2018

Violet Chachki on the Runway at Moschino F/W 2018

Violet Chachki, the winner of season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, closed the Moschino show on the runway in Milan the other day. Remember; it’s the menswear shows for fall/winter 2018 we’re watching. Ms Chachki wore a black tuxedo, with a ‘twist’. Jeremy Scott,  designer for Moschino, named this garment the “tandem tux” because the tail was fixed to yet another model wearing the same jacket. Our best guess is that it was a female model: Violet looked rather manly. Don’t get us wrong here: we think she is always adorable!

Mini Runway Report F/W 18 Prada

Mini Runway Report F/W 18 Prada

Mimi Berlin watched the Prada show via livestream (prada.com) in the comfort of her own headquarters (praise technology!) and she has something to say about that fashion show. In a nutshell; first impression published on instagram.

And we’re off to the convention center. Which is also our holiday spot for this year. We are global citizens, wordly wanderers. We are proteced from the cold by High-tech gear, we don’t need socks. Our summer outfits are padded and printed. Our work-wear is made from padded nylon and other thick high-tech cloth (or is that wool?) the colors are in tonal hues of black, yellow, purple, brown and green.

‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ exhibition by Tim Walker

‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ exhibition by Tim Walker

Mimi Blogger Team went to the opening of the exhibition ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ by photographer Tim Walker and setdresser Shona Heath, who also designed the exhibition, at the Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch. This was at the beginning of November. Due to busy work days we weren’t able to post earlier on this must-see expo. We think Mimi Berlin’s Blog is not your only way of getting to know what’s going on, so you probably know all about this show: we won’t elaborate more on how wonderful we thought it was.

The exhibition will run through 25 Feb 2018 at het Noord Brabants museum in Den Bosch, The Netherlands.

Balenciaga’s Spring-Summer Collection for 2018

Balenciaga’s Spring-Summer Collection for 2018

About a month ago it was fashion-week in some parts of the world. Fresh women’s wear collections for Spring/Summer 2018 were presented once again. Balenciaga showed in Paris. Below the most demure looks of the pret-a-porter show. One of our favorites because these outfits really seem to be an instant a holiday-trip to us!
Greetings from Amsterdam,
xoxo Mimi

Worth mentionable is the fact that Balenciaga asked the Crocs brand if they could produce a platform shoe. They could. Result: the ‘Foam’ shoes, lightweight-odor-free-water-resistant-fully-molded-platform-Crocs in Croslite™ material.

According to Highsnobiety blog the Balenciaga Triple S sneaker was the most spotted sneaker on the feet of the audience. (See that street-style sneaker report here at highsnobiety.com it’s fun!) We wonder if the Foam platforms will be equally popular, what do you think?
