Well, the last album of the month became an album for three months, but a look at our home page will show you, that I was very busy and could not return to my little column earlier. But I return with an amazing album from one half of indie darlings Hype Williams. Dean Blunt, who released his debut solo album “The Narcissist II” last year, follows up with the enigmatic “The Redeemer”, a kind of audio drama in its truest sense. Folky pop songs are mixed with electronic sound collages, vocals and noises play an equal role – an artsy experiment or just the blueprint of how pop music has to sound these days, you decide!
The importance of details in an outfit brings us to a search of the exclusive accessory – glasses are often the best companions.

Coffee culture in China is more and more growing in popularity. Now a young and modern new deli & eatery concept opened in Shenzhen, with a lot of love for the detail and a great feeling for the mix of sleekness and cosiness.
While everybody else was checking up the multiple exhibition venues around the Salone del Mobile, I jumped over to Maison Martin Margiela Milano to discover French artist Cédric Bernadotte’s installation of “Residual Spaces”, showcasing furniture and objects, wrapped in industrial cellophane. Really WOOOW!
Just in time with the Salone del Mobile, Chanel make a stopover with the little black jacket exhibition in Milan. Karl Lagerfeld’s (with Carine Roitfeld) amazing photographs of the reinterpretation of Chanel’s iconic jacket in an impressive historical building to accompany with spotted light and electronic music. The book, available at most of the book stores, is a must have.
Vitra came with a related structure like last year, but the installations are still incredible and shows us, that they are one of the leaders in furniture and interior design. Fron the outside they bring illuminedwhite plastic boxes into a luxury context. Inside they created various colour worlds into small boxes with a distinguished view for details. Thanks for it…
