We recently visited the big apple to show our new SS15 womenswear collection at Coterie, meeting with our current stockists; Bloomingdales, Revolve, Shopbop, Holt Renfrew (to name a few) as well as new & exciting stores… watch this space!
AQ/AQ Man is the latest brand to team up with ‘Fresh Habits Presents’ producing an editorial featuring the AW14 collection dubbed ‘Three’.
The number three has spiritual connotations – referencing this along with science fiction such as ‘Blade Runner’ and Japanese anime ‘The Ghost In The Shell’ as a starting point a narrative emerged for this collection; Questioning the spiritual being and if this could also apply to a humanoid robot or an artificial intelligence who believed itself to be human. The hero of this collection is an android questioning its existence, purpose and how it came to be.
We love Feral Creature’s blog here at AQ/AQ HQ so when we heard that she was going on a vacation to Hong Kong, we thought why not send her away with a wardrobe to match her contemporary yet rebellious style…
“I’ve shamelessly worn this outfit three times this trip, each time because the occasion demanded a presence as powerful as the last.” Feral Creature

Robert Dietz cut his clubbing teeth on the Frankfurt scene dominated by the likes of Sven Vath, Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano, but the flourishing artist leaps all musical boundaries. His only guiding principle can be summed up in words of Chuck Roberts: House is a feeling!
His production skills focus on the same meeting place between technical proficiency and pure excitement. Over the past few years Dietz has built up an impressive CV including work with the likes of, Luciano, Nic Fanciulli, Loco Dice, Davide Squillace and fellow Frankfurt star Reboot.
Robert’s rise has been apocalyptic and relentless, quickly transforming him into one of the most in demand names in electronic music. Releasing quality records on stellar imprints such as Cecille, Cadenza, Deep Vibes, Running Back and Saved Records and having developed his skill set as part of the Cadenza team, Robert has now moved onto pastures new where he continues to craft a trademark house sound that captures the celebratory spirit of oldfashioned club music fused with a sleek, 21st century aesthetic.
His highly acclaimed debut compilation, Arkitekt 001, was released in October 2012 to rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Showcasing his both his versatility and deep knowledge of the scene, Robert seamlessly blended between the more laidback, deeper sounds of CD2 and the more underground and club friendly palette of CD1. Following the accomplished debut compilation, 2013 will see a string of impressive new EPs on the way for Robert including his already critically acclaimed ‘Common EP’ on Frankfurt’s ‘Running Back’ imprint, as well as new material appearing on Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records and Loco Dice’s Desolat label.
