Vintage Charms from Rome, Italy

The main ingredient for this capsule-collection are of course the mini-charms. They were found, in the 1970s at the fleamarket in Rome, Italy, by us, at Mimi Berlin. We stored the charms in the attic for about 50 years. Believe it or not: we kept them in a mason-jar.

We are not sure if we will ever see one of Victorine M¨¨llers performances, we could’t find much new information on her on the interweb…… (images via

Spring 2015 Prêt-à-Porter: Sheer Madness

Spring 2015 Prêt-à-Porter: Sheer Madness

At the Summer shows for 2015 there was a lot of body to be seen through the sheer  layers of fabric. Nothing new we hear you say; No, agreed, the use of transparent fabrics aren’t new, but the shape they come in this season are; they are extravagant in a romantic way. (Mind you, these are no brides you see below!) The designers did go wild with their imagination and used tons of fabric to create over-the-top, floor-lenght dresses for us to strut on the streets next Summer.

No Brides


Covered from top to toe in Lace.  Lace is still going strong on the runways, has been  since Winter 2011. Romantic at Zimmerman. Jumpsuits at Ungaro. Unfinished lace punk at Yamamoto. We also noticed models to be covered in Broderie Anglaise, which is less transparent but from the same romantic family as lace: >see that HERE on this blog


Taking it to extremes with netted-like fabrics and embellishments. To-the-office netting at Leroy, Oversized at Balenciaga and Anrealage. Alberta Ferretti took it to the next level using extra embellishment to create an über-garden-fence-dress


Sheer beauty with striped layering at Dries van Noten. Accessible dots and stripes at Galliano and Maison Rabih Kayrouz. Color-blocking with ruching at Valentino
