Three years ago I founded Ultra Violence. But as a human you move on, you develop, you are constantly changing and sometimes you then end up with a feeling that other aspects of your life need to change as well. It has already been a while since I was disaffected with the name and design – Ultra Violence refers to the movie “A Clockwork Orange” by Stanley Kubrick and although I still love his work as much as the movie it wasn’t suitable for the blog anymore.
Over a few months I was repeatedly thinking of a new name, a new look, a new image. The visual language and also the topics I covered on the blog were already so much different from the beginning so I really couldn’t wait to open up a new book and start from a blank page again.
So here you are now: reading a brand new post on my new blog Existhetics. It was really important for me to only have one word, it should be a catchy and easy name and somewhat reflect what I’m doing here. This page is about aesthetics, my own vision of beauty, of style and visual storytelling, but as I also address many existential topics in the philosophical sense of the word (referring to Albert Camus, Satre and so on), to simply name the blog “Aesthetics” wouldn’t have been enough. The two main topics of the blog combined form my neologistic name – Existhetics.
This blog page started as a mainly fashion blog but I also want to write about other topics which are close to my heart.
So why not stick to the combination in today’s post? It’s a special day, page 1/365, the day where I finally kiss Ultra Violence goodbye and welcome Existhetics with open arms – so let’s write about more than just the name and life changing development here on the blog 😉
Let’s talk about fashion!
The look I’m showing you in the images is dominated by my favorite non-color black. I wear a black suit, consisting of a wonderful cape blazer and high-waisted trousers both by H&M and underneath a silk body which I found on For Love & Lemons. To keep it as festive as possible I put on long black tassel earrings which I’ve found on Zalando. To enhance the golden hooks of the body I combined the suit with my Dior Saddle bag and the golden Gucci Marmont pumps.
I hope you enjoyed reading the very first blog post here on Existhetics and are at least half as excited for all the upcoming content as I am!
Wishing you all the best for 2019 – may all your wishes and resolutions come true! Stay safe and healthy, care more about yourself and your well-being, spend as much time with the ones you love and enjoy your adventures ♥
Lots of love,
