Der Stille Sonntag *136

Kikagaku Moyo: Kodama (Music via Norman, Meggi & Kiki, Pic via Life on Sundays)

Petite Noir: Chess

Petite Noir: Chess Thrilling music from Petit Noir. The artist ist from South Africa and there is something dark, but still uplifting in his songs: ‘This is a subtile and gentle mix of Joy Division, Spirituals and some kind of bantu chorals’, popped into my head when I heard it for the first time, and yes, […]

Marsano x FvF Apartment: The New Lust for Flower Arranging

At one time it was quite popular, yet it fell out of fashion in the wake of emancipation: the art of flower arranging. In New York and London the creative scene has discovered this craft for themselves and they’re almost gleefully breaking the rules of traditional florists. In the Freunde von Freunden apartment Marsano, Berlin’s gorgeous flower […]

Gluten Free Museum

What does a dieting world look like? Gluten Free Museum knows the answer. (via Meggi)


«Meine Kleidung ist nicht laut, sie ist super-unaufdringlich. Alles ist sehr leise. Wie von Schnee bedeckt», beschreibt  Dušan Paunović sein Label, das Mode für Frauen macht. Wie von Schnee bedeckt nennen die Japaner auch einen speziellen Farbton eines Stoffes, der für Kimonos benutzt wird. Um diesen für einen am klassischen Männerschneiderhandwerk orientierten Blazer zu bekommen, […]


Andrew Bird: You woke me up


Sam Cooke: Bring it on home to me Discovered late Sam Cooke for myself. The soul singer and producer was shot down under mysterious circumstances and died far too young at the age of 33. But left his songs to us. Watch one of his rare life footages and let take you by the charm of this […]


Jens Lekman: A Pocketful of Money Of course we all were a little bit in love with architect Julius Kranefuss who was interviewed by my great colleague Alicia Reuter for Freunde von Freunden, with pics by lovely Carina Adam. See his amazing apartment and studio, but better read his wise words and about his approach to life […]

Tillmann Prüfer: Schönheit. Was uns gefällt

Bei den Modenschauen in Paris sieht man meistens denselben Typ Frau auf dem Laufsteg. Sie ist sehr schlank, sehr groß und sehr jung. Selten geschieht es, dass diese gleichförmige Prozession unterbrochen wird. So geschehen bei der Show des Designers Rick Owens vor einem Jahr. Dort traten statt der üblichen Modeschaustellerinnen Ausdruckstänzerinnen mit wütenden Gesichtern und kräftigen Körpern auf. Sie […]


A London-based Islamist was interviewed by a Lebanese TV-Host. As he was not focused she asked him to stick to the topic – to be cut off by a lady, even for the right reasons, outraged the man, that he told Rima Karaki to shut up and started insulting her. Mrs. Rima knew how to handle the situation. After […]

His Cello and a Looping Equipment will make you forget about everything around. Jeder sollte sich die Zeit nehmen, um ein paar Minuten am U-Bahnhof Schönleinstraße zu verweilen: Charles […]
