OUTFIT INSPIRATION WITH MANIFATURRA CECCARELLI, TSPTR, RED WING HERITAGE …

It’s been a while ago when I did my last post … damn … more than one year … There are a lot of reasons for this – too many to list. From today on I will try to publish regularly again @ LIFE TIME GEAR.

Some weeks ago I did a newsletter for B74 Selected Goods when I was wearing some of my favourite brands ›› Manifattura Ceccarelli (Mountain Jacket), TSPTR (T-Shirts, Sweater), Blaumann Jeanshosen (Schmaler Blaumann), Red Wing Heritage (Iron Ranger #8083) and Ralf Kellenberger (Jewellery). All stuff is made in Germany, Italy, Portugal and USA – LIFE TIME GEAR at its best! To learn more about the brands and especially the stuff I wore check the links.

RALF KELLENBERGER JEWELRY | NEW ONLINE SHOP LAUNCHED

Just some minutes ago I got Ralf’s first newsletter with grand news: www.ralfkellenberger.com is online now! I am so happy with the result because working together as a consultant with Rocky Beach Studio at the conception, design and realization of this unique store. Even more because I am a great fan of Ralf’s work. My first piece was a B74 Selected Goods ring made by Ralf 10 years ago. Meanwhile I own three rings and a fourth is in progress and we got friends and a good working team. Ralf was born 1982 in Pforzheim, Germany, known as the „Golden City“. Raised by his mother, a jewelry designer and his father, a diamond setter. It was their natural talent and sharp eye for detail that have inspired him through the years to create a unique and timeless collection true to the motto “Humbled by art, inspired by the earth.” Please check his new website to discover Ralf’s awesome jewelry. Every piece has its own history … it is really interesting reading this stories. All pieces are now available at www.ralfkellenberger.com or exclusive at B74 Selected Goods Shop in Frankfurt. By the way the man with the camera and three Rings on – this is me.

INDIGO PEOPLE | SNEAK PEEK OF FALL WINTER 2019 COLLECTION

One of my favorite labels referring to accessories is the brand INDIGO PEOPLE. Indigo People is founded on the love for traditional, craftsmanship and the beauty of natural indigo. Their
products are manually dyed in natural indigo and handcrafted by passionate artisans following authentic techniques with a long tradition. The fully manual production and natural dyeing process
result in little imperfections in the product. Color material and sizing variations give each item a unique appearance. I got the new look-book from Uwe E. Maier c/o Amtraq Distribution for a peek – and this here is just a very small selection of all the wonderful blue colored treasure. I love these batik printed bandanas so much! The stuff will be available in stores Fall 2019. For stockists check Amtraq Distribution. © Photos | Indigo People

So I have to say thank you to my Soulbrother Michael Uhlemann c/o CUISINE M. , to Peter a longtime good buddy and my most beloved copywriter and my Sohn Levi. These are just a view shots.

TELLASON “TEN” MAGAZIN

Hi guys, I am back! After 6 months of working so much on different projects I will continue LIFE TIME GEAR blog. I am so sorry, that LTG blog was “sleeping” and I was really surprised, that a lot of people asked and wrote me, if LTG is dead and that I should keep going on the blog – I will do! Okay, one of these projects was the creative direction of the “TEN” magazine I did for TELLASON and AMTRAQ DISTRIBUTION because of the 10th Anniversary of TELLASON. It was a great pleasure to do this for Pete, Tony and Uwe –you must know, since 2012 I didn’t wear another jean than my two pairs Tellason Gustave. We have have had an exciting time with a lot of work and best teamwork with people around the world. Last week the magazine was launched at the “TEN”  anniversary party during Selvedge Run 2019. Here just some pages to look at.

SHOP PORTRAIT B74 | INTERVIEW WITH SHOP OWNER KAMI HASHEMI BY SAPEUR OSB

What a surprise this morning. Online Magazine “SAPEUR – One Step Beyond” launched a full length interview with B74 Selected Goods owner Kami Hashemi. What a nice read! Everyone who knows Kami recognizes the authenticity in his wording. It is a pitty that the interview is just in German, but maybe you can ask a German speaking friend to translate. It is really interesting. Kami also owns the first Red Wing Shoe Store outside the USA located in Frankfurt and the FREITAG by B74 Selected Goods Store. The B74 also drives an online shop: www.b74.de … Feel free to visit these great stores if you are in Frankfurt, Germany, or stop by online! all pics | Christian Schramm Photography
