BW in Berlin

Earlier this evening, Bernhard Willhelm showed his autumn/winter 2009/10 men”™s collection at Postbahnhof in Berlin. Inspired by the 1976 winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria, the models were put on skiers, horses and other carriage. Some of them looked like they were cast at Ficken 3000 (I’m not judging, just observing).

OK, let’s go skiing. More pics after the jump.
All photos by my (now) bff Sascha Fierce (yes, HE lives in Berlin).

Glowns

The colourful picture of Kanye and his entourage at Paris fashion week was shot by Torontonian Tommy Ton.

Now Kanye’s hairdresser has blogged about their trip to Paris, complaining about people calling them gay & clowns. In the first paragraph, he has to make sure that no one is gay or a clown. Really?

I don’t get it. Who doesn’t want to be a hot glown?
Nothing better than that.

Kanye & Entourage: Glowns?

Bulletinboard Blvd.

Lucie and Will have an opening at their gallery Pro Choice in Vienna tonight. And 5 million people are involved. Every one sent a poster which is going to be put up by Tom Humphreys.

The list of all people is below, but I really wanted to show you what my poster looks like. There is a some Chicago in there and no Bernhard Willhelm. I know, shocking.

Hotnuts Trompe-l’œil

We got some Trompe-l’œil action last night. The lady strippers got the audience all heated up & provided some lezzie action for birthday girl Andrea. Then Mikiki took the stage with a self piercing performance number. I think she’s a vampire, she did not bleed a single drop.

p.s. Mary might be preggers, we’re waiting for the test results.

All pictures are on flickr in full size.

Just Another Dream (Don’t Judge)

Someone tells me that Martin Margiela himself can be seen in the video to his spring/summer 2009 collection. I download the clip from some weird website.
In the show the models look like Margiela models but they all wear Bernhard Willhelm. At the end of the show one model walks into the woods carrying a huge blanket.
In the woods, the model unfolds and shakes the blanket when it suddenly becomes a boxing ring. All ropes are made out of compressed Bernhard garments, looking a bit like Weiche Zäune.
The mood in the woods changes to Lost. The background music suggest something mysterious or dangerous. Sudden light flashes. On a small path between the trees, every time the light flashes, I can see a person who looks like it may or may not be Martin Margiela.
I woke up.
