Last week was Berlin’s turn to take over Milan’s Plastic Club. Each month, Andrea and Chris, the creators behind the new monthly party 747 ✈ PLASTIC, invite DJs and musicians from around the world to perform. A new month, a new city. I was invited to cover Berlin edition featuring Kinky White Horse, following previous parties with London’s Richard Mortimer of Boombox/Ponystep, and New York’s The Misshapes. Kinky White Horse’s costume designer Josa Marx accompanied the band, exhibiting his dark and fantastical creations as part of the performance.
Although I pledged to spend the rest of the summer in Berlin, I ended up back in Milan over the weekend, invited by Milan’s infamous Plastic Club, who were having their Berlin edition of a monthly party called 747 (a few photos from Berlin-based Kinky White Horse’s performance later). I realized from my last visits that outside of Fashion Week, Milan’s best looks come out at night, so I didn’t spend much time on the street hunting for people. Instead, I arranged to meet with Marcelo Burlon, who might as well be Milan’s Argentine Prince of the fashion scene.
