In his S/S 14 collection, Issever Bahri translated Turksploitation into crazy weird uniqueness that tap-danced between political statement and art: a clashing palette of poppy red, gold, yellow, ash green with rich black and white against lacy meshes and metallics.

Is a static movement
That runs out
Textures are modeled
On my breath
As raindrops fall
The water collects
Amidst Their Own chests
My chair has turned golden
Overcast with shadows
That nature deals
And i dance
now is time
to remember a day
before to day
a day when we were young.

When I booked my flights to the United Arab Emirates, I wanted to flee from the man who broke my heart, from the cold weather in Austria, the personal stress and my depressive mood.
I wanted to go somewhere, where it’s warm and cosy. Where there is a sea. Where I’d be safe enough, to go alone. And where I wouldn´t think about my feelings 24/7. And the United Arab Emirates had been the perfect choice.
Flying away from cold Vienna, my journey brought me straight to Dubai International Airport (the 3rd biggest airport in the world). After quite a long waiting time, to get my 30-day Visa, the driver from the hotel picked me up and brought me to my hotel in Ras al Khaimah. Seriously, I loved my hotel because it was exactly what I needed. Elongated enough, to have time just for me, to calm me down. The food was excellent and the wellness court was great too. The Arabian Gulf was warm enough to swim in it and the sun was shining every day. And 28C were also perfect. After my relaxing phase, I decided to explore that beautiful country.
First I made a guided tour through the desert. It was much fun to drive with a jeep over the “BIG REDS”, as the local calls the dune, because of the red sand. The trip was very bumpy and in some moments I really thought I’d have to puke, but fortunately I didn’t. In the middle of the dune there was a typical touristic Beduin- camp. But in fact, it was quite nice with the food, the henna-tatoos, the shisha-smoking and the belly-dance. One thing that I really liked about it was, that you could leave the camp and take a walk in the desert by yourself. To see the stars in the dark desert sky, when it’s totally quiet around you, made me feel small and big in one moment. It was so impressing to lie in the sand and watch the million stars above me.
After my trip into the desert, it drew me into the beautiful city of Dubai. Dubai is amazing. It’s like the New York City of the Middle East. The city is growing faster and higher every day. Dubai is the home of many records:
- the world’s biggest shopping mall (the Dubai Mall) - the highest building (Burj Khalifa, 828m) - Deira Gold Souq (World’s biggest gold-Basar) - Worlds biggest flag (at Union House) - AT.MOSPHERE the world’s highest restraint And many, many more.
My tour through Dubai started at the Al Bastakiya, a refurbished, historic quarter that lies at the Dubai Creek. The architecture of Al Bastakiya is famous for its narrow lanes and the wind towers, that were used as air-condition when they were built. Today there is a cultural quarter. After this fascinating place I went to the Dubai Museum. This museum is located at the Al Fahidi Fort. The museum gives you a very good overview about the history of Dubai city and the Emirates.
To get to Deira Old Souq and the famous Gold Souq, I took the water taxi over the Dubai Creek. The Old Souq in Deira is the biggest souq in the town. There you can find the spice-souq, where you can buy spices like saffron and vanilla, roses, indigo, licorice and many, many more things. What you really have to do is paltering, otherwise you pay too much. During my walk through the old souq, I went to the famous gold souq. First thing that I saw there was the world’s biggest gold ring. The narrows in the gold souq are glittering the whole time. I really never saw so much gold located in one place. That was very impressive.
The next thing on my to-see-list-in-Dubai was the Burj Al Arab (321m). This building has the shape of the sail of a ship and stands on an artificial island. It once was entitled as the World’s only seven Star Hotel. (Seven Stars do not exist) The last point on my list were the highest building in the world, the Dubai Fountains and most important ;) the Dubai Shopping Mall!! When I first saw the Burj Khalifa, I couldn’t believe that it’s really that high. When I started to take pictures of it I had to make them a bit agley, because it doesn’t fit the screen. It was very stunning to stand in front of that building.
My most pleasant tour I made through the Dubai Mall. The largest Shopping Mall in the world. Yes, it’s really big. 1200 shops, Dubai Aquarium and the Dubai Ice Rink – absolutely my world. Yes, lil` Laurie, in the Mall and with money to spend…. Well, before my little shopping tour I checked out the Ice Rink, where there was a hockey match between some guys. The funny thing about that was that only the referees were wearing ice-skates. Seriously I just skipped the Aquarium, I had too many fish on my plate the whole week and I didn´t want to see what I had eaten. For me, as a shoe addict it was the most dangerous place in the world. Beautiful shoes everywhere and a special corner. The shoe-corner. I really tried to stay firm not to buy shoes and for 1 hour it worked. In the end, I bought some. But just one pair!!!! I swear!!! To check out all shops it took me more than 2 days so hopefully I will come back there and bring my credit card to glow. My last to-see-point was the Dubai Fountains. An incredible fountain show in front of Burj Khalifa. The show starts at dusk and the Fountains are choreographed. It’s so lovely to see the water moving to the music. I really enjoyed my stay there.
Seriously, Dubai will see me once more. It’s such an amazing city. People are friendly, the food is marvelous, they are smoker friendly and you can visit the city alone without getting bored or feel unsafe. Dubai, you made my stay unforgettable and my depressive mood much better. Now I feel better and more relaxed like I hadn´t been in a long time. I enjoyed my stay and seriously I look forward to discover more of the UAE. Dubai I’ll be back.

They are very famous in Rome, Paris, Florence and even in a small town in Serbia, where this costume was supposedly made up. But love is everywhere, and many have found it in Vilnius, where in several bridges you can find hundreds of love locks. Seems to us that Lithuanians love locks. And we love Lithuania.

He turned to me and said
”I wonder what its like to sleep
with a beautiful poet like you?”
With no smile on his face
and his hand on my waist
He put his hand down my pants
In the empty bar and love was dead
Only lived in wonder
Apart not together
”I’m not wearing anything” I said
”Now I got to go, farewell” my eyes
Here comes that
Primitive and ill
Sink my teeth into
Your flesh and I
have no sense
A bite to hard he didn’t scream just said
”Let me be with you, live with me, let me
sleep with you maybe we’ll dream on, the
coldest nights through” and terror scattered
I no longer want to see
I know how you look and I know
how you want and need me
Hold on to me as I’m running away
then raising the game
Two hour of a boner is a hell of pain
I get of for you to feel the same
Burn the flame I see a highway on
Lafayette when the night is black
and the cars aren’t left
I’m flaming away stir
I’m going away again
I never needed a lover
Lets not pretend
When I stop I cannot begin
When I begin I cannot get down
Let me take you down burn in flame
We can go higher I’m wide awake
this feels insane
Music doesn’t fill my heart tonight
It’s so tired empty and dark
It’s been dreaming of you in the
I’d show you with all the scaling
sky shining in my room
You’re a vampire to we got nothing
Come play with me our appetite
No one will know we disagree
For no one will know we were
And yes I like to fight so make this
With even a million miles away I’d
remember your scent the way that
Even a million miles away
I’d never know the difference from
heaven and hell

The Living Room is a hair-salon-cum-art-gallery in the heart of the lively Bastille district, off Rue de la Roquette. With its discreet black facade and graffiti-covered windows, it could be mistaken for a tattoo parlor.
Inside, the walls are covered with works by young contemporary artists. There are vintage objets trouvés and Japanese anime figures on occasional tables and display cabinets. Not exactly décor that shouts ‘hairdresser’, it’s surprisingly homely in an ironic, Portlandia kind of way. The soundtrack is Azealia Banks in heavy rotation on the background.
«People are fascinated when they come in,» says The Living Room‘s English-speaking, colourist, Aurelie. «They come… and they keep coming back.» Marie Claire magazine even took to the atmosphere, describing it as «like visiting friends, with sofas for lounging, soft lighting, tea and coffee…it’s chic and simple, packaged in a contemporary setting.» Aurelie has been working there for almost a year and half. Finding exactly the right colour for a client is an art that can’t be taught but Aurelie is that rarity, a gifted colorist.
Born in Vietnam, The Living Room’s owner and head stylist, Matt, trained in Paris before working in an up-market salon in Convent Garden for six years. Since opening his eccentric, hole-in-wall salon eight years ago, his skilled, dry-cutting technique has drawn a loyal clientele.
Even better, in a city where top salons will give you little change from six or seven hundred Euros for a ‘cut and colour’, at The Living Room, you’ll need less than 20 per cent of that.

Alle Jahre wieder! Der Valentinstag steht schon in den Startlöchern und große Gefühle können mit einer kleinen Aufmerksamkeit zum Ausdruck gebracht werden. Nachdem die letzten Jahre meist ein paar Blumen auf unserem Schreibtisch gelandet sind, möchten wir heuer doch mal etwas anderes haben. Der Frühling klopft ja ebensfalls schon ansatzweise an die Tür und wir Frauen träumen gedanklich schon die knackigen und farbenfrohen shirts, shorts und Schuhe herbei. Wir haben passend zum Anlass diesmal ein bisschen bei dem britischen Kaufhaus Debenhams geschmökert, welches seit Sommer 2012 auch einen deutschen Onlineshop eröffnet hat. Hier unsere Editor´s favorite picks “make your girl happy on Valentinsday”.
