Andy Kassier And His Secret To Success

sea meer drone Drohne photography Andy Kassier Palms suit Miami Vice High Fashion editorial mustache hipster My friend Andy Kassier is a terribly gifted photographer and artist. Recently he showed his installation ‘The secret to my success’ at local vintage clothing shop Vintage Emde and I posted about it on Spook.Andy Kassier Palms suit Miami Vice High Fashion editorial mustache hipster

In the article I also featured some of his regular images which are awesomely high scale and show him as a spoiled new money rich kid. All of his pics sport some serious fashion editorial vibe revealing his background as a classically trained photographer. Though Andy never forgets to put the subtle irony into his show off images transforming the pics into deeply thoughtful pieces that make you also dream.

Head over to Spook to see more of his great work and read my article in German.Marmor Buch Andy Kassier Photography Secret to my success Vintage Emde

And here some of my phone pics, showing us goofing around a little.

Ace & Tate Cologne Pop-Up + Stefan Marx

interior ace&tate pop up Köln Cologne Stefan Marx watermelon Wassermelone displayDanish glasses brand Ace & Tate just launched their newest pop-up store in Cologne. I took the chance to check out their designs and attended the (pre*)opening at Pop;68.

Ace & Tate have taken over the gallery rooms for the time of their pop-up’s being but did not ditch the art. In fact with each store this brand assumes a close cooperation with an artist.

He created some great summery watermelon pastels which went on to become wall paper at the store. If you happen to visit, the contrast between the bright interior and the black and teal exterior walls will wow you deeply and surely lure you the more inside.

*The preopening two weeks ago was nice, too. A little less crowded so you could chat with everyone and play around more. They even brought along Sushi, a sweet dog which in some way has become a mascot for the Ace&Tate people.
