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

The images of the vintage Christian Dior Monogram Sheer Mesh undergraments are available from 1dbts at ridiculous prices, but if you really need to have one click the links above and buy one.

Mimi Berlin’s Runway Report Summer 2019

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

 

ArtEZ Fashion Show 2017

ArtEZ Fashion Show 2017

Yesterday we, Mimi Blogger Team, went to see the annual show of ArtEZ Arnhem’s fashion design department, which was held at Musis Sacrum, one of Arnheim’s cultural centers. Musis Sacrum (just love that name) has restrooms larger than our headoffices, with very high ceilings covered in travertine (but that’s another story…) The first and second year students opened this fashionshow with experimental designs and after Collectie Arnhem 2017, designed by the 3rd year students, we got to see the graduation collections. This year a group of 19 Bachelor students will be graduating; congratulations to all!

As we took a peek backstage after the show, we noticed that the detailing of the designs are pretty high standard; fabrics (and leather) are often embellished and finished by hand, also the of craft knitting, printing and embroidery isn’t lost on these students. We love that!

Dramatic Waist Hip Ratio Kim K in Dior Bikini

Dramatic Waist Hip Ratio Kim K in Dior Bikini

Mrs Kardashian-West is breaking the internet once again with her body. To be precise with an unretouched picture of her very large booty wrapped in tiny Dior swimwear. The world of celeb addicts (yours truly included) is fascinated by the size of her humongous, almost bare, behind. While examining her butt (and the astonishing hip – waist ratio) we also wondered if this is a vintage Dior bikini she’s wearing….. You must know that the designer at the house of Dior is sending a completely different type of woman/body-image into the world nowadays.(see images below)

Dior also broke the internet with these ‘we should all be feminists’ slogan t-shirts last year at the fashion week. (they will be for sale soon at a Dior shop near you). We would like to see Kim mixing vintage Dior with Dior’s new slogan tee; ideally a wet one! xoxo Mimi Berlin

Yesterday the Kenzo x H&M show was held at Pier 36 in New York (Creative Director: Jean-Paul Goude/Music Director: Sam Spiegel/Choreography: Ryan Heffington) We thought it was a blast! We don’t agree much with the mass produced garments and policy sold by H&M; but we do hope the people in the streets, in 250 cities worldwide, will turn brighter and more pretty with this collection, only if it was for one season…….

From the H&M Press office:

The KENZO x H&M collection will be available in over 250 H&M stores worldwide, as well as online, from November 3.” Continue reading

Chanel Airlines for Spring 2016

Chanel Airlines for Spring 2016

It’s an airport…..It’s a performance……Well; it’s a fashion show!

This fashion show for the Spring/Summer Chanel season of 2016 reminds us of the movie “The Truman Show” (1998) directed by Peter Weir. As you all may (or not) remember; that movie is about the life of a man starring in a tv reality show, as himself, in his own life, but he doesn’t know that he’s being filmed and that his surroundings, including people, are a constructed reality. In 1998 this was called a science-fiction type of movie. We’re not sure if the real-life-soap-stars-family The Kardashians  exsisted on TV in 1998, but they sure do now: and Kendall Jenner (that’s the half-sister of the Kardashians) strutted this Chanel Airlines runway being a model. That fact ends this petite story in a nice, full circle…..it’s all fake but not so much!

Yeezy Season 2

Yeezy Season 2

Comments on social media on the Yeezy x Adidas (shoe) collection for Spring/Summer 2016, presented at New York Fashion week, are downright Nasty! The comments range from the “Emperor’s Clothes”, “Gap meets Good-Will Industries…?” to “Is Kanye about to outfit an army of Tusken Raiders?”, the latter is the most used visual comment, it’s meant to ridicule the fashion show. Par Accident these fashion-illiterates on the net made a fashionable equation; comparing the second Yeezy collection with the epic Star Wars movies isn’t such a bad thing, au contraire; we could have come up with that ourselves! But we didn’t.
And now we are stuck with the image of Jedi Masters and Tuscan Raiders…..So all we can say is that we, at Mimi Berlin, actually like the collection designed by Kanye West, the clothes and colors make the boys and girls look handsome.
Are we the only ones with a more positive reaction to this collection?

See those comments made on the net gathered HERE at uk.complex.com
and on news.com. Oh, also it was compared with the way homeless people look…..just like the First Yeezy Collection was.
