How to Make your Hype Portable

Since everybody fiddles on all kinds of digital devices and gadgets to go online everywhere, we realise that the web is not solely visited from desktop computers. From mobile browsers to netbooks and tablets, users are approaching websites from an increasing array of devices.

The landscape is always shifting, perhaps more quickly than many of us might like. Some even say, mobile browsing will outdo desktop-based web access within the next three to five years. Thanx to the great WordPress theme designs of German developers Elmastudio, one of their themes proudly applied here, all hyped articles that were published in the past and will be published in future on This Is Hype are fluid and flexible in size on a large variety of web devices.

If your’re owner of a super-hyped iPhone or iPad, you can easily make This Is Hype portable and visit the site directly from your device’s home screen.

Our classy Hype icon will then be added to your home screen and you can quickly access our website, which fits in your mobile browser just perfectly.

Street Hype // Cologne Candy

Candy Crimson at Amphi Festival, Cologne 2012

We met the unmissable Candy Crimson at annual Cologne’s Amphi Festival. This year’s line-up included Apoptygma Berzerk, intellectual love gods The Sisters of Mercy and legendary electropunkers D.A.F. As we can see, Candy defines herself far from average or conventional. Working both as model and make-up artist, the goth girl loves being creative on a high level, which she lives up with her exceeding make-ups and sublime outfits.

Fashion Now // The World of cosmopolitan Style

If it’s good enough for Paris Hilton, who is rumored to shop here every now and then, it’s good enough for us. One of the 1000 and one things to do while in Paris is a trip over the city’s Triangle d’Or, i.e. the Golden Triangle between the Champs Elysées, Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V – at least window shopping wise. Luxury fashion labels congregate behind grandiose entrances, leaving you dragging your jaw past fabulous yet unaffordable window displays. French people even have an expression for that: lêche-vitrine, translating window licking in English. It’s that what you’ll be doing in Triangle d’Or a lot. If it’s not only for window licking, then it’s an eldorado for fashionistas and victims of conspicious consumption. Paris’ first multi-brand designer boutique is Montaigne Market with over sixty international designers, offering seductive prêt-à-porter. You can meet the beautiful ones at the Market during Paris Fashion Weeks even at night, sipping champagne and having witty small talks over the most exclusive pieces of the next season. But even if you can’t afford that Christopher Kane leather dress at 2000 Euros, you can still evaluate who’s hot in the world capital of cosmopolitan style, even if it’s through a peephole or a shop window, respectively.
