While august is slowly fading away, autumn is at the door with tones of new 2012 collections and black fashion to enjoy…
I couldn´t resist, as often, to show you a must have styling from AllSaints. When I first saw the Neely Body I got immediatly caught by the seductive silhouette, the lace pieces and the luxury gold coloured metal zip at the centre back. A must have of the season which gives a charming dark romantic yet modern touch to every kind of styling.
So, when I tought what I would personally match with this body my eyes fell on a pair of extreme skinny fitting jeans made using high shine coated stretch black denim. The Petrel Brodie Jeans
The Hero Boot: a luxuriously soft, mid-calf boot made from Portuguese tumbled nubuck.a simple design enhancing the good quality of the leather.
Your style for today is done:)
Berlin, Invaliden cemetery… at the tree…“But Arwen went forth from the House, and the light of her eyes was quenched, and it seemed to her people that she had become cold and grey as nightfall in winter that comes without a star. Then she said farewell to Eldarion, and to her daughters, and to all whom she had loved; and she went out from the city of Minas Tirith and passed away to the land of Lórien, and dwelt there alone under the fading trees until winter came. Galadriel had passed away and Celeborn had also gone, and the land was silent.
There at last when the mallorn-leaves were falling, but spring had not yet come, she laid herself to rest upon Cerin Amroth; and there is her green grave, until the world is changed, and all the days of her life are utterly forgotten by the men that come after, and elanor and nimphredil bloom no more east of the sea.” (Death Of Arwen-Lord of the Rings-Appendix I)
In Berlin, more than in other countries, many cemeteries are planned as parks and visited from a large crowd of residents and tourists..
I recently got a nice invitation at the cemetery from a german gentleman and, a part from taking it with dark humor, I found it very romantic as soon as I have seen of what kind cemetery we are talking about…
Places of silence and peace, marmor and nature, wild Ivi, red roses and oak trees. A romantic syncretism between ancient and modern… classic suggestions and nature, a spectacle for the eyes and for the soul. You feel finally in peace and you fear death no more. Very german and wagnerian indeed..

Berlin, Invaliden cemetery
The Invalids’ Cemetery (Invalidenfriedhof) is one of the oldest cemeteries in Berlin. It was the traditional resting place of the Prussian Army, and is regarded as particularly important as a memorial to the German Wars of Liberation of 1813-15.

details of the Operas of Alexeander Rodin, from his exhibition in Tacheles, Berlin.
Many berliners and foreigners consider Tacheles one of the coolest art project of the city: a “Trash and Cool” must see. The decadent rebellious atmosphere hides inside great art and talents. Colorful detailed graffiti all over the walls, stairs, dark, and on the top a strange light calling to enter in the little antechamber of the huge Alexeander Rodin`s exhibition. Giant paintings, contrasts of colors and details, contradictions, dramatic power and dark moods…I feel them like flesh and blood, like being at the edge of the World.
Is this black? I say yes, when something is so absolute then it´s Black, no matter how it appears… This man is really a great artist, I can say it.
As for me, today, “Trash and Cool” means: i pick up one of my best black tailleurs, a pair of sandals, my sunglasses and walk into the dirt enjoying all the creativity around me.
Today I am featuring:
- leash chain aluminium necklace, with red rose and vintage look from my own collection. Very soon on the market.
- Denny Rose summer season black limited edition tailleur (Thank you Lady Arpia for the nice gift:)) . The tight long pants are made of a double material. On the front a waved bright black satin, and on the back a mat black fabric.
The jacket is made of the same mat black fabric except the long arms in waved black satin.
- Bershka black sweather with shoulder studs and black sandals..
Molti berlinesi e stranieri considerano Tacheles uno dei progetti d´arte più interessanti della città. Un “trash&Cool” assolutamente da visitare. L´atmosfera decadente e ribelle nasconde al suo interno grande arte e talenti. Murales coloratissimi dappertutto sui muri, scale, buio e, in cima una strana luce che richiama ad entrare nella piccola anticamera dell´enorme esibizione di Alexeander Rodin: dipinti giganteschi, contrasti di colori e dettagli, contraddizioni, potere drammatico e umori oscuri… posso sentire questi quadri come fossero carne e sangue, come essere ai confini del Mondo.
E’ tutto ciò nero? Io dico di sì. Quando qualcosa è cosi assoluto allora è Nero. L´apparenza esterna è irrilevante. Un grande artista, di certo.
Per quanto mi riguarda, oggi, “trash and Cool” significa: scelgo uno dei miei migliori tailleurs neri, un paio di sandali, i miei occhiali da sole e cammino nello sporco godendomi tanta creatività.
Oggi vi presento:
- Collana in catena d´alluminio a guinzaglio con rosa rossa e look vintage. Mia personale creazione, presto in vendita.
- Denny Rose tailleur estivo nero in edizione limitata (grazie Lady Arpya per il regalo ). I pantaloni a sigaretta sono fatti davanti in satin ondulato e dietro in tessuto di colore opaco.
La giacca, dello stesso tessuto opaco a parte le maniche in satin ondulato strech.
- Bershka maglia nera con borchiette sulle spalline, e sandali alla schiava senza tacco neri.
