Vowels = Space And Time

Braving the cold for far too long, wearing black to attract the heat… or simply because there is just something captivating about an all-back outfit. Show Me More…

Parenthesis

Once you feel the last winter chills slowly dissolving into the crisp spring air, you’re excited to realize it might be the last time you brave the breezy nips with a stylish coat. Whether it be a cozy wool blend or a soft faux fur, a coat can simply serve its purpose or carry all the flair when you go for a dashing color or daring print. Show Me More…

Baby It’s Cold Outside

What a delightful sight! For the first time in about 6 years, parts of the canals in Amsterdam have frozen hard enough to walk and skate on the ice. Spring is right around the corner, but the biting cold and frozen waterways that have suddenly come out of nowhere definitely say otherwise. It’s winter all over again! Show Me More…

Horizon

The restless waves of the blue Aegean Sea hug the shore and linger as a rippled mirror reflecting the picturesque mountain villages of Greece. As pristine and stark white as they are, domed by royal blue roofs, one wonders how this color combination came to be. The Greek flag in blue and white would almost suggest it comes from a profound spirit of patriotism, the true reason is a lot more practical though. Show Me More…

Slip Into Something More Comfortable

If there is one thing more peculiar than ever about how fashion trends develop, it is surely the evolution of casual wear and more specifically how denim has come a long way since it was introduced in the 1700s as work attire. The versatility of this wardrobe staple is endless, with no other item of clothing having been worn as long as the quintessential blue jeans. It doesn’t seem like anyone will be fed up with them anytime soon either, as the trending model and cut seems to change with the season creating an all new look. Show Me More…

ARTEXPO – Sepehr Maghsoudi

Mark Wednesday the 14th of February in your agenda, because this is the day you can bring your Valentine along to admire some very special art pieces by Persian fashion designer Sepehr Maghsoudi at Gallery Salon West. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of his label, he will pay homage to the arts by fusing it with fashion. As you can read in our “about us” category, we have always recognized that fashion and art greatly influence each other and very much serve as a source of inspiration to one another. Sepehr’s exhibition demonstrates this in a very unique way, showing fashion installations inspired by the art of the Salon West artists. Besides some beautiful couture items with some pieces from his 2018 spring collection, he will also exhibit his paintings and ceramics to the public for the first time. Show Me More…

Gold Teeth

The very first video that aired on MTV when it launched in 1981 was “video killed the radio star” by the Buggles. One would surely see the irony in that since television replaced radio as most popular mass medium in the 1950’s, playing such an integral role in modern life that most people can’t imagine being without it. As television and present-day media reflect and shape cultural values, the increasing number of screens around us is at times lauded and at times criticised. Modern technology allows news to travel faster than ever and any information we desire is just a click away, much to our convenience. However, the downside is that trends tend to fizzle in no time and the sensory overload actually restricts our ability to enjoy art, music, fashion and life to the fullest. Slow down… take your time… and switch the screens off now and then. There is a reason we focus on quality over quantity and limit the amount of our posts. Show Me More…

The Femme Fatale Cabaret

Burlesque performances, in the form of a variety show were very popular from the 1860s to the 1940s in clubs and theatres all over Europe and the United States.
