Tallest Men on Earth in the 20th century

Tallest Men

The three men pictured below were some the tallest men on earth, in the beginning of the 20th century. Ralph ‘Tex’ Madsen or the ‘Tall Cowboy’ was photographed in 1919 on the steps of the Capitol in the US of A. The German soldier, photographed and captivated at Calais in 1944 is believed to be Jakob Nacken. After WWII he returned to New York, where his job was being the largest Santa Claus in the world. Gogea Mitu a.k.a. ‘Goliath of Romania’ was a boxer from, yes; Romania, photograped here in 1935 together with an ‘opponent’. They all most likely suffered from gigantism don’t you think?

How lovely and strange are these images?!
That’s it for today: Have a one! xoxo Mimi

Fall 2014 Menswear Prada

Fall 2014 Menswear at Prada. What a lovely show, judging from the video (see below) it must have been awesome to sit in the audience! We are not sure why we also see women on the catwalk at a menswear show, but we always like that, it puts everything in a more clear perspective for us. Wow! look at those retro feel gabardine coats and jackets, the fur coats with the seventies feel to them! The pimp shoes and the buttery soft leather dresses. We also loved the and the down-to earth, or traditional silhouettes and the styling with the tied scarves! (but you know that already)  BUT wait a second….what’s up with the bomber (literally; bombs-strapped-to-the-body) type jackets? Oh aha, under a pretty coat they become more easy on the eye! Phew… BAM whats up with those shoes? The ones with the plastic architectonic shaped heels? No, those are never right, nothing can make up for them! We hope this footwear does not catch on in the form of a trend at, for example, GEOX. Anyways, enough with the negative vibes. It is a lovely show to watch: and friends of Mimi Berlin: do notice the orchestra playing Live Music, simply in one word w o n d e r f u l!
