PHOTO DIARY: BORIS BIDJAN SABERI SPRING SUMMER 2014 SHOWROOM

When my friend Tamaro Fuji asked me to accompany him at the Boris Bidjan Saberi showroom to pick up pieces for Black Whole Store, his boutique in Cologne, I knew I was in for a treat. Too bad I was too shy to take lots of photos inside the showroom since Boris was a stone throw away from me. In general, the collection was just okay. It was not as strong as Saberi's previous works. But there are indeed several covetable pieces like his signature leather pieces and those sweet astronomical trousers. Also, Boris injected some colors for this season. My friend Wolf already pre-ordered the orange showpiece leather jacket. It looked pretty darn sweet in my opinion. I tried on a number of pieces while I was at the showroom while Tamaro was busy doing his picks. And I have to say the fits are pretty spot on. I totally love the masculine proportions. Looks pretty darn sexy on me! The footwear was absolutely my least favorite from this collection. I was not really crazy with the cut-out sneakers. Although I kind of liked the orange classic Boris sneakers. But I don't think I can pull-off any pumpkin orange sneakers anytime soon. So most likely I will pass on getting those.
