Austria’s finest editorial men’s fashion magazine “Vangardist” invited me to discover the idea of Nostalgia. Together with a great group of bloggers from Germany and Austria we came together at Villa Antoinette at the Semmering to take a trip back to the past.

Vangardist-Nostalgia-Issue

Be prepared for Vangardist’s Nostalgia issue, that is coming out in June with amazing fashion editorials of all of us (Manuel – Meanwhileinawesometown, Philippe Gazar, Ilija – Way of Jay, Des & Jen – Desnjen, Riccardo – The fabulous life of Ricci). Here’s a little preview, so you’ll already get in the mood for the issue with amazing fashion that was inspired by the idea of Nostalgia.

For me “Nostalgia” is actually not a very relevant mindset, as I train myself to be present and aware of the “Here and Now” mostly. I don’t believe fantasizing about the past makes you more happy. But sometimes a peak in the past can help as an inspiration to create something new. I believe that every trend that is inspired by the past, always has an element of evolution as well.

So this look represents my idea of “Nostalgia” pretty well – it’s a combination of old and new and therefore perfect for the NOW :) The Villa Antoinette was the ideal location for this experience – it’s old glamour is so well styled for today’s needs and you can see the attention to detail throughout the whole house. We enjoyed our stay here to the fullest – especially the Spa area and our amazing bathtub in the room!
