To me, this close-up encapsulates the essence of Maison Martin Margiela. A lot of elements which evoke pureness and simplicity. Such as the clean neckline, the bare face and the perfectly tousled hair. And an element which is unusual in this particular context, but at the same time makes totally sense. Such as this rather unusual piece of jewellery. One of the rare cases where „effortless elegance with a twist“ is more than appropriate and not just an expression.

Back then: the transparent clutch. Right now: the chrome handle leather tote. Maison Martin Margiela knows how to stay on our minds for sure.
Another week, another wanted list (Ha, saying that makes me feel a bit like a showmaster). Now that the temperatures dropped for real and we experienced the first day of snow, it isn’t that hard to imagine anymore: Christmas is knocking on the door. Luckily, I’m able to report that I’m almost settled gift wise (that doesn’t necessarily make me win some sympathy points, does it?). Nevertheless, I collected a few items which, as always, range from ridiculous pricy to nicely affordable and yes, this time it’s all about and for men. So let’s get started…
(1) Can one ever have enough winter coats slash jackets? I don’t think so and if you have any doubts, one look at this beauty is more than enough to change your mind. (5) A T-Shirt? Seriously? Yes, seriously. Because of the delicate dyed effect. (2) Noting his appointments in a pocketbook schedule makes him probably a rarity. Although he probably enjoys doing this in style. (3) A classic chrome ballpoint pen might just be the perfect companion to do that. (4) Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, because he is only human, after all. And for once, he can approve of the packaging. (7) A propos packaging: L’Occitane has not only very good quality products, they look very nice as well. (6) A cotton and leather bag which would be his new daily companion. I’m pretty sure of it.
(1) A.P.C.: Duffle-Coat (2) Mucu: Olive Pocketbook Schedule (3) Pentel: Chrome Ballpoint Pen (4) Burt’s Bees: Lip Balm (5)Maison Martin Margiela: Overdyed Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt (6) Billykirk: Large Caryall (7) L’Occitane: After Shave Balm
As you have probably already noticed, definitely golden comes now with a brand new title design (thanks to this lovely man here and his beautiful handwriting) and I couldn’t be any happier about it. But there is even more news: at the right side you find two new buttons standing for two new series, Captured and Wanted. The first one is going to be dedicated to Instagram, among others to little subjective observations and thoughts. The latter introduces you regularly to a personal selection of a few lovely things covering a wide range: expensive, impractical, indispensable and affordable. I figured it would be a shame to exclude any of those categories from my list and with that, from this blog. Just as this insanely beautiful transparent clutch by Maison Martin Margiela.
