#Berni4Ever






Bernhard Willhelm Fall/Winter 2015

Like a grown-up teenage daughter playing straight drag queen dress-up. Don't neglect that spandex. Don't hide behind your camouflage. And never put aside those gloves. In it to win it.

Comic-al fashion. Comic-all fashion. Non-related but fun. Or, to quote on of the artworks, ‘the copyist has become a pop art star!’ Miu Miu is pop and pop art is Miu Miu. With a dirty smile and messy handbag. Smudged lipstick and sperm-stained patent coats. Comix are fun.

Two bunnies and one pig. From man to boy, a parallel universe of (naughty) childhood fantasies, happening parallelly between New York, London and Disneyland. It is, indeed, existing.

Call Me Brait






Brad Pitt Rolling Stone, 1994-1999

Long long before Brangelina and Caitlyn Jenner, there was Brait Pit. Long blonde hair and sequin dress, cigarettes, sex and latex gloves on the beach. We did and could have had it all.
