Lace for Men/Hot T-shirts made in Dior-logo-lace

At the Dior show, the history of the French fashion House was dug up from the archives: the monogrammed lace or sheer mesh design,  populair in the 1980s and originally used for women’s ‘intimates’ (underwear) was re-used for t-shirts.

1980s

In the 1980s the Dior monogrammed sheer mesh was considered a bit tacky. Next to stockings and perfume it was the cheapest Dior-item available. It still is tacky now, maybe even more so because we think it’s executed in flock-printed mesh; but in a good way! In our opinion these t-shirts look só hot on men! #thatshot #auchhaben

Christian Dior Monogram Sheer Mesh

Mimi Berlin’s Runway Report Summer 2019

What we noticed at the Menswear Fashion Shows in Milan, Paris and everywhere else on the interweb.

 

Apocalyptic SF Action Heroes on the Runway for F/W 18

Apocalyptic SF Action Heroes on the Runway for F/W 18

Fashion-week: menswear for Fall/Winter 2018. It’s a mad, mad world. It truly is. Some Fashion designers can’t take it anymore, and it shows! Rick Owens showed some kind of mutant men. (the ones with the white faces) At Comme des Garçons some of the models  wore skeleton warrior-like headpieces (sewn in fabric). At Yamamoto’s Y-Project, the boys seemed protected by thigh-high-Ugg-boots: again it’s a mad and apocalyptic world!

Comic Book

In the runway shows, by the designers above, there was also a more lighter, and more colorful side to be found. Below, for example; Comme des Garçons, a jacket with an actual comic book print. At Vetements in a more illustrative way: the comic-book figure himself.

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!

Magasin Horaz New Department Store in The Hague

Magasin Horaz New Department Store in The Hague

A new and lovely department store has been opened: Magasin Horaz in The Hague. Why is Magasin Horaz special? The shop itself: it’s divided into separate rooms in a historical violin workshop (from Josef Joachim Vedral, violin maker) built in 1700. The goods: a mix of, well, everything; carefully selected by owner Horas Simanullang. Browsing the store you can feel the fun it’s owner has with filling his store, we think that’s very special! Magasin Horaz has a small selection of high quality goods like menswear fashion (Comme des Garcons, Van Slobbe Van Benthum) bespoke designer objects, (cook) books, interior design items, some top notch foods and sooooo much more. The back of the store houses a small art gallery with a new exhibition every two months. You can also have a drink in the “Red Room” and sit outside on the patio if you like. The shop has yet to have a “Grand Opening” but it is open already!

The stairs to nowhere are showcasing items from the store.

The Hague: the city where queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands live. Magasin Horaz is situated in the old part of town: the center in the Molenstraat, a stones throw away from the Royal Palace Noordeinde, that’s where the Dutch king works. Visit Magazin Horaz on Facebook

Buidings as Fashion Show Venues

Menswear shows in Paris: Rick Owens and Kenzo chose a similar kind of venue: Trend Alert! Buildings as a fashion show backdrop (a summer trend; it needs to be outside).This post is obviously not going to be a Mimi Runway report: we can’t see the actual clothes. But, what a spectacle it’s like the circus…..

Rick Owens’s fashion show for Spring-Summer 2018 was held at the courtyard of Palais de Tokyo / The finale of the KENZO Spring-Summer 2018 Men and Women’s show at the Lycée Camille Sée in Paris. (images via kenzo.com / i-d.vice.com)
