Paul Kalkbrenner Announces New EP From his Berlin Music Studio

Paul Kalkbrenner at SMS 2018

Paul Kalkbrenner‘s new EP is ALMOST here! The German Dj answered a few questions and shared the good news in a Facebook video, right from his Berlin music studio (great studio ambiance btw). It’s a rare sight into Paul Kalkbrenner’s life and work, which makes it all even better for fans. A couple of old but much loved tracks mixed with snippets of ‘Speak Up’ (the new release) made this “comeback” session an enjoyable and very informative experience.

About ‘Speak Up‘:
• The EP will be released at the beginning of June, this year.
• Is a four tracks selection.
• It includes ‘Laser In’, a track with a techno feel. This change of sound comes as a suprise, if we think to all of those “clasic” Paul Kalkbrenner tracks we love so much. Even so, new release means extremly good news for fans.

Diane Kruger took her velvet blazer dress to ACRIA’s 22nd annual holiday dinner. The actress went for an all-black outfit, topped with a single white stripe at the sleeves and on her long fabric belt. She then added more light, by carrying with her a black clutch completely studded with pearls. Love it!

Singer Lena, who not long ago made my day by attending Chanel’s Metiers D’Art fashion show, as a front row face, was seen rocking just the other day a Kim Kardashian kind of look, with black top, track pants and boots, while performing live on stage at Huxleys, in Berlin. I like this approach on her.

I’m glad seeing Kylie Minogue in a different place other than on stage (not that I’m complaining). It happened in Melbourne at the premiere of her latest project, comedy movie ‘Swinging Safari’. Her look for the event is relaxed, trendy and fresh, with a good conversation between shoes and dress.

Singer and actress Maite Peroni made a delightful appearance on the red carpet while attending the premiere of musical drama ‘The Greatest Showman’, in Mexico City. Wouldn’t call myself exactly the biggest fan of her dress, but I will pretend I’m ok with it just because I like her. Rebelde anyone?

Francia Raisa’s flared and extraordinaire pants have made my day, cause they are just cool. Love how the waist is built, love the stripes, the colors, the shape and even the length. She wore them with a cropped top, just simple one, and some pretty red strappy heels, the classic style. And that’s how it’s done.

Although I’m not into these type of showy dresses, I’m gonna go and make a second exception for today, since Brittany Snow’s dress has those playful flowers placed nicely as a cover-up of some sort. It is such an innocent element, but it does so much to this dress, so much so that I will say yes to the dress. And besides, Britanny Snow is quite the charmer. In the end, it all works together well.

Lena Hoschek sent down the runway Hungarian folklore inspired silhouettes, all looking playful and mighty delicious. The color red made a great match with flower patterns and dominated the entire shoewear. The style is diverse, ranging from elegant to hippie. In between, we find off shoulder tops worn next to medium flared skirts. The vibe is playful and flirtatious, reinforced by one-sided braids and flower hair accessories.

Romanian designer Ioana Ciolacu explored through the minimal by creating for the runway simplistic see through silhouettes covered by comfortable pieces of clothing. The final mood is decided by disrupted proportions or coded looking prints. Hair and makeup serve to the purpose of the collection and are created to look barely touched and even unimportant.
