Berlin Photo Diary

21/01/2012, Berlin, Current Affairs, Hugo Boss, Karlie Kloss

As many of you guys know, I’m currently in Berlin. Sincerest apologies for the lack of posts. I’ve spent the past week in front of many cameras other than my own. I think my good ol’ Canon is starting to feel neglected. I must say I’ve had very little free time to wander around the city on my own let alone document new things I saw. One must note however that I’m here on a business trip (by way of Hugo Boss) rather than vacation. A gurl’s gotta do what a gurl’s gotta do. Also, the weather hasn’t been very cooperative. We only had one afternoon’s worth of sunshine, the rest has been dark, cold and rainy.

Oh I cannot resist sharing what happened this morning. At around 8:30AM, I left my hotel room to go downstairs at the lobby for my car pick up. As soon as I entered the elevator, this really tall, blonde lady said “Ahem” out loud. Being the petite Asian person that I am, I looked up and saw the gorgeous Karolina Kurkova! I almost peed my pants and felt quite embarrassed that I didn’t recognize her at first. It was so lovely seeing her again — in the elevator of our hotel of all places. The last time I saw her was in New York before fashion week last season when me and my bf had dinner with her (and her husband and son). I love Karolina. I must say she’s one of the sweetest and nicest people I’ve met in fashion.

Speaking of meeting people, I also had fun at the Hugo Boss dinner the other night. The Editor in Chief of In Style Germany Annette Weber, model Luca Gadjus (who looks so amazing) and Olivia Palermo were my tablemates. After the dinner, Georgia May Jagger, Sky Ferreira who is super cool (my agent was adamant that we unite), Pixie Geldof (I have nothing but pure admiration for her jagermeister-downing skills) and I went out and about Berlin clubs. Don’t ask me where we went because I’m bad with names. Post-clubbing, we went back to Hotel de Rome for a club sandwich and pasta. All I know is that I got back to my hotel at dawn. I feel like twenty one again. Fun times all around.

Danke schön!

Wishing The Sky Was Blue

19/01/2012, Current Affairs, Hugo Boss

I really love my new sky blue suit courtesy of HUGO. I wore it to this afternoon’s HUGO fall/winter 2012 fashion show. Everyone’s wearing black in super rainy Berlin and my outfit is the perfect ‘pick me up’ in this gloomy weather.

Shopping And Fitting

17/01/2012, Current Affairs, Hugo Boss, Sponsored Content

One of the things I love about Germany (and Germans!!) is that everything works here like clockwork. People are prompt and efficient. I accomplished so many things earlier today — had lunch with my lovely friend Graeme who’s visiting from London (haven’t seen him since Copenhagen last year), did a bit of shopping (more like window shopping — DUH) at The Corner and Quartier 206. My late afternoon however was spent at a small warehouse-like venue for my HUGO fitting. I had to pick three outfits for HUGO (by Hugo Boss) events later this week. We’ll see what I end up wearing. I’m excited! ;-)

Hugo Boss Stockholm

14/10/2011, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Hugo Boss

After the super chic Bottega Veneta dinner at the Nobis Hotel last night, Elin and I popped by the Hugo Boss flagship store opening in Biblioteksgatan. I’ve been told Adrien Brody, Chloe Sevigny and Noomi Rapace were also there but you know me, I was busy swooning over hot Swedish guys (it’s that kid in the candy store feeling) over American celebs, just kidding. What fun!

Boss Black/Hugo Boss Spring Summer 2011 Finale

10/07/2010, Berlin, Celebrity Gossip, Hugo Boss, Spring Summer 2011

Boss Black/Hugo Boss Spring Summer 2011

View from my seat at the BOSS Black/Hugo Boss spring/summer 2011 fashion show here in Berlin.

Some of the models I’ve spotted at the show: Rose Cordero, Jourdann Dunn, Jessica Stam and Iris Strubegger.

Also, the super cute German Actor, David Kross was one of my seatmates. See the video above. He sat beside me on my right. It’s funny because I didn’t recognize who he was until after the show when a frind told me he was one of the actors on that beautiful film The Reader, starring Kate Winslet. I saw that movie on the plane from Manila to Amsterdam not too long ago.

Klaus Wowereit, Mayor of Berlin

10/07/2010, Berlin, Current Affairs, Hugo Boss

Klaus Wowereit, Mayor of Berlin

At the Boss Black/Hugo Boss show, I had the pleasure of meeting Klaus Wowereit who is the Mayor of Berlin. He’s one of the openly-gay, major European city Mayors — Bertrand Delanoe of Paris and Ole von Beust of Hamburg. 

Klaus Wowereit, Mayor of Berlin

According to Wikipedia, he coined the famous German phrase ‘Ich bin schwul, und dasist aucht gut so’ which means “I am gay, and that’s all right, too.”

I think it’s fantastic that one could be a politician regardless of their sexual orientation… I don’t think it’s gonna happen in backwater Philippines where the government is still, whether you like it or not, very homophobic.
