The Mendresser will be out of office....

First of all, I wanna thank all my readers for visiting my blog every day. Especially my beloved readers from Russia. You guys are the majority of my readers. I wonder why, but I am really happy because russian man are known to be tasteful.

As this year was very tough, I need a break to recover physically and mentally. When you lose your passion for fashion and esthetics, you have a problem.

I gonna use the summer break to travel and to focus on myself. Probably  I gonna follow a social media detox and focus on my studies.

I hope you will read my blog when it reopens in september.

Thanks for your understanding and a nice summer to you all :)



Bye bye my beloved GOLD´s

First, I have to admit that I am a passionate smoker. Due to health problems, my physician considered me to stop smoking. NO BIG NEWS SO FAR. It`s not healthy , it is disgusting , makes your skin ugly and so on.

During the last weeks , I had a lot of stress, so I was not ready to give it up. But today I had the need to quit. I decided to start project SMOKE-FREE. I don`t know how to make it but I hope the best. Because I am scared to take weight I gonna start a diet at the same time and the DUCAN DIET it will be.

So far so good , I am off to prepare my project in detail. I gonna enjoy my last cigarette this evening with a lot of passion.  Stay tuned to follow my war against tobacco and weight gain.

Berlin - Europe`s capital ?

Gorgeous Joan Smalls is the new face for this years Berlin fashion week. I think the commercial for the new Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake isn`t very spectacular but the car looks nice. I guess in anthracite it will be an eye-catcher. 

I adore Berlin Fashion Week because it´s a mix of established designers such as HUGO (my absolute favorite) and fresh young brands like KAVIAR GAUCHE and LALA BERLIN. 
This years "DESIGNER FOR TOMORROW" Award is hosted by the very talented and in my opinion handsome LOUIS VUITTON designer Marc Jacobs. Let`s see who will be the next upcoming young talent. 
If you wanna see most of the fashionistas during fashion week , stay at HOTEL DE ROME. Apparently all the models stay there during FW.
Have a nice day :) 


Fashion Role Model

Definitely , DEREK BLASBERG. His style is so classy. He looks like a true gentleman of the 21th century. 

What does a man need to look like Derek Blasberg ? 

  • A well cut and tailored suit. I like suits from Prada and Burberry. 
  • Silk tie or a silk bow tie. 
  • Clean leather shoes.
  • An elegant watch. 
  • A belt that matches the shoes. 
  • A very masculine perfume. TOM FORD´S "Tuscan Leather".
  • Dark sunglasses. IT`s : Ralph Lauren , Super , Tod`s. 


Fresh and light summer fragrances ...

During summer , I prefer light perfumes which contain citrus notes. Here are some of my favourites.

HAPPY FOR MEN by Clinique

Issey Miyake "L´Eau d`Issey pour Homme"

Eau gentiane blanche from Hermès

What a man need ....

... in his bag during summer.

I love summer but somedays I am struggling with the high temperatures. To avoid stains , redness and to refresh a bit , I am always carrying the following essential grooming products with me.

  • AVÈNE Thermal Water Spray
  • Anti-perspirant roller from BIOTHERM
  • A big bottle of water 
  • and last but not least : CHANEL blotting paper

Milan FW Day 1 - Favourite Show of the day.

It´s Milan Fashion Week. Fashionistas , magazines and well dressed men are in Milan right now to see what to wear next summer. Big names on the first day such as Jil Sander , Dolce and Gabbana , Buberry Prorsum and Versace.

My favorite show of the day : BURBERRY PRORSUM.

In my eyes Christopher Bailey brought up the major trends for next year`s summer collection. Earth Colours mixed with Metallic and beautiful strong summer like colours. I am looking forward to wear those metallic shirts with a nice pair of skinny jeans.

greetings ,



Arctic Skincare

Der verspätete Wintereinbruch überraschte nicht nur uns Männer, sondern auch unsere Haut. Sie ist trocken , gerötet , schuppt und juckt eventuell auch noch. Die Pflege muss deshalb der Jahreszeit angepasst werden. Das optimale Pflegeprogramm umfasst Reinigung , 1 bis 2 Mal wöchentlich ein Peeling , Feuchtigkeitspflege und bei sehr trockener evt. zusätzlich ein pflegendes Serum.

Ein Auto erfordert ordentliche Winterreifen , Männerhaut erfordert die besten Pflegeprodukte.

Hier meine Favourites :

  1. Reinigung : "Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser" von KIEHL`S bei Mischhaut und Öliger Haut. 
  2. Peeling (unbedingt vor der Rasur um diese zu erleichtern und zusätliche Rötungen zu vermeiden) : "Gommage des Lagons" von CARITA.
  3. Rasur : "Sensitive Skin Shaving Foam" von BIOTHERM HOMME.
  4. Maske :  Sensibel`chen empfehle ich die "Masque Givre au Tilleul" von SISLEY. Die Wirkung rechtfertigt den relativ hohen Preis dieses Produktes. 
  5. Pflege : "Facial Fuel Age Combat" von KIEHL`S 
  6. Körper : Extra Portion Feuchtigkeit liefert die EUCERIN "Complete Repair Lotion". 
  7. Extra Tuning für die trockene Männerhaut : Das reichhaltige "Midnight Recovery Concentrate" von KIEHL`S pflegt die Haut über Nacht und lässt sie am Morgen wieder gesund aussehen. 
Fragen und Anregungen sind gern gesehen.

Liebe Grüße,

Euer Mendresser.
