Review: BERLIN FASHION WEEK 2012 W/ CHARMIE


We are so excited, packing and preparing for Berlin Fashion Week 2013. EARLY will be represented at Capsule Show which is taking place at July 2nd and 3rd. I really like Berlin in summer. I remember how much fun it was last year to just hang there. 

As my lovely cousin Charmie had some model bookings for Fashion Week 2012 I decided to join her and get some inspiration for EARLY and absorb the vibrant fashion mood that saturates the city in this last week of July. We just strolled around, chilled with our friend Jasna at my favourite place Prinzessinengarten during the day and met the cool artists Mahoyo Girls afterwards. 


Altogether we were invited to the ASAP Rocky concert - and we had a blast. Not only because we are huge ASAP fans, but also because of the wild dancing, sweating and jumping around like headless chicken.





After the  concert even more magic happend: Accidently we ran into the NY based photographer Paul Ward and the Brasilian shoedesigner Matheus. We shared a cab and enjoyed a final drink. While having a great time an idea came up: Why not spontaneously join forces and realize a project with all the things we love most? Fashion, modeling, shooting and frozen yoghurt!

So this is what we where up to the next morning ...




 


Yuummmm! Those comfy shoes come from Mutta Shoes, caps by Two Bob and Accessories like hip bag and bow tie by EARLY. Paul shot the pictures and uses them for his awesome "I am series". 

Now tell me, could the flow of this journey be any more perfect?

Please come by and say hello this year at Capsule, Postbahnhof, Straße der Pariser Kommune 8, 10243 Berlin. We're looking forward to seeing you!

Thanks to the endless opportunities life has to offer,

V

Status: HAPPY 1ST BDAY!


 

Okay, let us figure this out: EARLY ONLINE is already one year old? Like 12 months? Like 52 weeks à 7 days and stuff? Seems like nothing. Although, our little baby has already quite grown, hasn't it? :)

We're celebrating a busy and adventurous year with champagne and yummy carrot cupcakes. There's so much more to come.

Thanks to y'all!

We travel: CHARMIE AROUND THE WORLD

 

Our friend and jetsetter model Charmie hops around the globe and gets down at some exclusive fashion events. Always with her: The 4V BAG as both, handbag and backpack.

Left picture shows Charmie at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, right picture is taken at Audi Fashion Festival in Singapore. Poor thing. Can't you get us at least some of those canapés?

And pls come back soon.

Love,

ML

Yeah, we make it: CLUTCHBELTS

Wanna know how the magical metallical belts from EARLY's V CLUTCHES are made? They take quite some piece of handicraft. Have a glimpse!

First, our producer at the manifacture cuts the leather belts into delicate stripes.

After that, we gather our friends for some teatime, cookies, chatting and ...

 

... weaving. Voilà! Thank you, Vera and Charmie.

We say 'hello': VERA


One of EARLY's busiest girls: She's an artist, a designer, a thinker and a nerd with style, spirit and temperament. She consults and finds ideas for new products and designs. Plus, she has just discoverd a secret passion for files and runs the office and the stock like a master. Haha.

In this picture she's at her studio wearing the black and white V CLUTCH, which she really loves. She's not the only one, the CLUTCH was sold out within a blink of an eye.

Thanks babe for your great work!

Yeah, we make it: ONLINE SHOP


Wow, that was one marathon of shooting and preparing. But let us tell you this: If it’s in your heart, it’s always worth it.

 

EARLY's online shop was about to launch with fresh products from the VINTAGE EDITION and a new model.

 

Our new EARLY family member Kohrlan smiled like she was lovedrunk. We celebrated the opening and the friendly buzz on fashion blogs and online mags with confetti, ice cream, and champagne.

Thanks for the support!

FESTIVAL SEASON 2 - 100 YARDS BLOCKPARY


The last weeks were so busy that I almost forgot to share my pictures from the 100 Yards Blockparty with you. But it was such a great day all in all that I want to keep its memory alive, even if it ended in a bad way for me - my car was broken into!

The funny thing about it is, that the thief stole specifically EARLY products. Unfortunately I had a new 4V Bag in the trunk, which I intended to deliver to a customer the next day. It was gone, as well as my own 4V Bag including a Mini and a Middle Pouch and a Mobile Case, all in a very used condition (apparently still precious). There were three pair of shoes and two nice branded jackets which were spared. (Yes, I have the tendency to turn my trunk into a closet.) At least this someone was nice enough to empty all my pouches, so that I still have my cards, my makeup and most of the other little things we carry in our bags. But the car was such a mess! I didn't want to take a picture and I hope I'll forget quickly about it. 

But the Blockparty was incredible! Perfect weather and great music. I can hardly remember an event with as many beautiful people, and I was pleased to see quite a few wearing EARLY hipbags. The Pharcyde and Azari & III totally rocked and Nas just killed it! He played for almost two hours! You could really feel his connection to the crowd. It was so much fun and got even better when it started to rain. It was a very gentle rain that soothed the heat of the day which was still stuck in the 100 yards. Epic!









For all who missed it  - check out the 100 yards video recap or the summing up below.

EARLY elsewhere: FEATURE IN RAL6010

FESTIVAL SEASON - LÜFTEN ARTS AND MUSIC FESTIVAL 2012


RAINBOW OVER OPEN AIR STAGE AT LÜFTEN FESTIVAL 2012


LAST WEEKEND WAS A BLAST! I SKIPED WORKING AND SPEND TWO WONDERFUL DAYS WITH SOME OF MY CLOSEST FRIENDS AT LÜFTEN ARTS AND MUSIK FESTIVAL. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT THIS FESTIVAL TOOK PLACE, AND EVEN IF IT WASN'T AS WELL-VISITED AS IT COULD BE, I CAN ONLY SAY THAT I REALLY LIKE THE CONCEPT AND HOPE THAT IT WILL BE ON AGAIN NEXT YEAR. THE MIXTURE OF DIFFERENT ART TYPES IS INSPIRING AND SEPARATES THIS EVENT FROM BIG COMMERCIAL FESTIVALS.

MY FAVORITE PLACE WAS THE TACO BAR RUN BY SOME GUYS FROM FRANKFURT STÄDEL ART SCHOOL. I LOVED THEIR FOOD AND THE WHOLE SETTING THEY CREATED. 

THE CONCERTS OF JAMES BLAKE, DILLON AND ALEX CLARE WERE AMAZING, AND I WAS BLEWN AWAY BY THE PERFORMANCE OF HUDSON MOHAWKE. I HAD NEVER HEARED OF HIM BEFORE BUT HE MADE ME DANCE LIKE THERE WERE NO TOMORROW. 

ON THE LAST DAY IT RAINED FOR TWO HOURS, BUT DURING THE FINAL OPEN AIR CONCERT OF MAXIMO PARK A MAGNIFICENT DOUBLE RAINBOW EXPANDED OVER THE STAGE. THERE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN A BETTER ENDING! 

I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT SUMMER FULL OF RAINBOWS, MUSIC AND LOVE.

THAT WAS THE FUNNEST DAY...


YESTERDAY I WAS SO HAPPLY THRILLED BY THE LAUNCH OF EARLY ONLINE BUT SO EXHAUSTED AT THE SAME TIME THAT I WAS REALLY LOOKING FOR PEACE OF MIND ...

ESCAPING FROM THE HEART OF THE CITY ON MY BIKE WAS ALREADY PURE BLISS AND THE LIGHT, THE AIR, AND THE SILENCE OF THE FOREST BROUGHT ME COMPLETE EASINESS RIGHT AWAY...

I WENT TO A PLACE WHERE MY FATHER USED TO TAKE ME AND MY BROTHER AS KIDS WHEN MY MUM NEEDED SOME QUIET HOURS: A WOODEN TOWER IN THE FOREST. FINDING IT LOCKED UP DUE TO ITS STATE OF DISREPAIR WAS DISAPPOINTING  BUT AS I TOOK A RIDE ON THE BIG WHEEL LATER I HAD A BEAUTIFUL CHANGE OF PERSPECTIVE ANYWAYS...

AFTER SOME DEEP BREATHS I WAS READY FOR THE CRAZYNESS OF THE REAL WÄLDCHESTAG FEAST. I'VE NEVER BEEN THERE BEFORE, AND ALL THOSE FUN RIDES SURROUNDED BY TREES TRUELY SEEMED BIZARE TO ME. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND KIND OF DISTURBING AT THE SAME TIME...

I'M QUITE FAMILIAR WITH THIS WOODLAND AND THERE IS SOMETHING ODD THAT I PARTICULARLY LIKE ABOUT IT: ITS WIDER PATHS ARE FIXED WITH CRUSHED ROCK THAT HOLDS LITTLE PIECES OF GARBAGE FROM PAST DECADES HERE AND THERE, ABOVE ALL THE PEEL OFF PARTS CANS USED TO HAVE IN THE 80IES. I KEEP FINDING THEM BY CHANCE EVERY TIME I'M WANDERING AROUND IN THIS AREA, AND IT GIVES ME AN INTENSE MOMENT OF A CHILDHOOD BACKFLASH, WHEN DRINKING COKE WAS SOMETHING BODACIOUS AND FOLDING PAPER PLANES FOR OUR TRIP TO THE WOODEN TOWER WAS MY OCCUPATION. 

MY NEW OCCUPATION WITH EARLY IS SURELY AS MUCH FUN! I'M REALLY HAPPY! I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO SHARING THIS JOY WITH YOU! EVERYTHING MAKES SO MUCH SENCE RIGHT NOW.

TAKE CARE!
