I recently visited Paris and had the pleasure of seeing an exhibition from the photographer Erwin Olaf titled ‘Berlin‘. The collection of photographs and one very, for lack of a better description, interesting installation was a feast for the eyes. The photos were very vividly colored and slightly editorial in nature. This should have been expected since Olaf if known as a very accomplished fashion photographer, working with the likes of Gucci, Diesel and Levis’. According to the press release the photographs deal with “the conflict between generations, between ignorance and knowledge.” It is well worth a visit if you are in Paris.

If you happen to be in London’s Shoreditch neighborhood make sure you stop by the shop A Child of the Jago. Opened in 2009 the shop is an ode to Victorian era London. In fact the name of the shop was inspired by a novel by Arthur Morrison who wrote about the Jago slums, which were located during the Victorian area around Arnold Circus, in Shoreditch. It’s a mix of amazingly edited and designed unique and unexpected clothing items. Although its focus is on menswear I am sure there are items that could be worn by the ladies as well.
