Alte Schönhauser Straße: Sojin

Rick Owens jacket,
Vintage blouse and trousers,
Zara cardigan,
Shoes from Korea

I love Rick Owens, but I’ve gotten bored of the Rick Owens robots, head-to-toe in black. I really love how Sojin was able to incorporate his dark designs into an otherwise very feminine look (with some colour even)! It is nearly summer, after all.

At home: Nina Egli

Though I usually refrain from characterising people by their nationality, I have to say Swiss people are, even to me, a distant by heart German, very reserved people, who usually do not invite you home before knowing you some time. But not Nina. I got her contact from Pascal and she instantly agreed on inviting me into her home. Without having met me before, she welcomed me with a big smile, wearing a bright yellow silk dress she got at a Zürich fleamarket for 5 Franken (about 4 Euros — she will show me this secret gem in summer). Nina spends one half of her life in Zürich, where she lives almost in the middle of a forest in the south of the city, and the other half in New York working on her jewelry and clothing line Toujours Toi and Family Affairs.
