I found an ideal situation to check out the latest designs of the most influential german fashion designers in full display at Berliner Modesalon. Three floors of the beautiful Kronprinzenpalais packed with the who is who of fashion made in Germany. Michael Sontag caught my eye on the first floor with models showing his designs lounging on black beanbags. Absolutely stunning: the brocade suit in turquoise and gold.

The most glamorous designs could be found on the second floor at Vogue Salon – hand picked and hosted by Vogue Germany’s editor in chief, Christiane Arp, who was actually present the whole day.

A main inspiration for the designers appeared to be classic Hollywood this season, the dresses became a lot more sensual, elegant and sexy – without looking retro at all.

Nobi Talai dresses women in gently falling fabrics in mauve and mustard colors, accentuated with tiny bows. The waist line is set pretty high, a decision appearing in a big share of the presentations here.

Sarah Effenberger of Fomme  presented androgynous designs for men that would be totally wearable for women too. My favorite piece was the jumpsuit – another one featuring Prince of Wales Check. The sixties spirit radiating from this one immediately made me think of the James Bond movie „On her majesties secret service“ – the costumes for this one had been designed by Wily Bogner back then. Felix Scholz Illustration Vogue Salon Berlin Fashion Week Berliner Modesalon Fomme

Last but definitely not least, Vogues darling: Marina Hoermanseder ! Already excited to see her new creations at the show scheduled for the next day, I could get close to a selection of her new collection. Shiny leather in shocking pink or burgundy, masterly crafted – very powerful and so feminine. Felix Scholz Illustration Vogue Salon Berlin Fashion Week Berliner Modesalon Marina Hoermanseder

I had the honor to meet the amazing Dr. Jane Goodall yesterday in the Botanic Gardens in Berlin-Dahlem and hand her her portrait. I am still totally excited that I could talk to her about my illustration project for the Berlin Underground Station Hermannstraße. After so much time spent with all kinds of endangered species I was extremely happy to meet one of the most influent persons who dedicated their life to the research and the protection of the animals i portrayed in that project. I asked Dr. Goodall to either keep the painting or eventually sell it to raise money for her organization which would both make me feel totally honored. Thanks for your visit to Berlin, Dr. Goodall!

„Follow Me“ in Munich

The series of portraits „Follow me“ by Berlin based artist Felix Scholz is examining the way of self-representation of men standing in the spotlight of public interest. They all have in common to owe a big part of their success, their media presence and their general market value to their looks. Professional in different fields – as models, actors, sportsmen, porn actors, performance artists or bodyguards – they all are making use of their face and body to keep and enhance their image. In a more ore less subtle way. 

Using hypothetical social media posts of these protagonists – painted in gouache water colors on bristol paper – Felix Scholz is reflecting recent postings or anticipating potential future postings of this men. 

The interplay between protagonist and recipient – the prominent poster and the anonymous follower – is being blurred and disturbed by the intimacy of the unasked portrait. The posting of the portrait, including the tagging of the person being portrayed is provoking a reaction, challenging to position himself in this act of approach. 

Shown until June 1, 2015 in Kunstbehandlung Gallery in Munich.

Hermannstrasse, Berlin – The final constructions on the platform

I just received some pictures from Spain, where the tiles with my illustrations of the endangered animals of Hermannstrasse Station, Berlin are produced. Ceracasa, the tiles manufacturer in Valencia is doing an amazing job. Most of the murals are constructed here in Berlin, already. However, I am looking forward to the missing parts a lot – 4 large murals, that I am still waiting for. Two of them are being produced right now and I have been especially excited about them, because they are the only ones that include text and info graphics too. So the passengers of Berlin Metro will be able to learn about the 85 endangered species, shown in the illustrations. The names of the animals will be shown in German, Latin and English. A short introduction is printed in English and German.

Urban Jungle in Berlin

„Endangered Jungle“ as a concept of redesigned Berlin Underground station „Hermanstrasse“ is dedicated to the threatened habitat of the tropical rainforests.
The large scaled illustrations that I worked on for a period of about 12 months now are going to continuously cover 36 tiled columns and walls of the platform, showing a sequence of distinct geographical zones of tropical rainforests around the globe, together with their smaller or larger inhabitants. During changing trains or the time spent waiting on the platform, passengers are invited to meet over 80 different endangered species shown in more than 150 single portraits – such as parrots, birds of paradise, monkeys and apes, antelopes or big cats – an occasion to take a pause and go for an expedition in the urban jungle.
