Dinner Table Conversations #07: Arrogance In Fashion, Burberry Runway Show February 2018, Logomania, On The Fringe, Storets, Quickest Porridge…
This article is in line with The Listen recommendation. Logo, logo, logo, that’s what the fashion crowd seems to be all about these days. However, are some of those fashion influencers still true to their style by picking one logo item after the other? I don’t think so. Besides, more interesting so is the sudden trend to wear Ikea, DHL and other brands as fashion items. Is there a certain ignorance going on? We might say fashion is being arrogant. Or is the industry pointing out issues that have to be addressed in the world of business? Masha talks about the topic in her recent article Arrogance In The Fashion World.
You know how much I love Burberry. Their runway show just took place in London. Hence, you might want to watch the presentation. I can only say moody, big check, the colours of the rainbow, lots of patterns and embellishments. It was described as reflecting the past, celebrating the present and heralding the future. Besides, the celebration of diversity was definitely included as well. However, I am honestly not sure what to think myself. I associate Burberry with class and in my mind, this show did not manage to reflect that. After all, I am sad to see Christopher Bailey leave Burberry. He started out with some truly brilliant collections. Anyhow, I am very curious what the new creative director will bring to the table.
A must listen. The only requirement is that you need to understand German. If you are interested in real-talk about the fashion department, Instagram, brands and influencer, you have to listen to episode #44 Logomania by MatchaLatte with the hosts Lisa and Masha. The two businesswomen fire up a conversation long overdue. Thank you, girls.

THE MUST BUY
I am currently really into the gluten-free millet and buckwheat porridge by Bauckhof. You simply add hot water, vanilla, and psyllium husk to create the perfect porridge. Lastly, I recommend adding a spoonful of nut butter and honey on top. The quickest and easiest breakfast I know. Besides, it is good for you.
