What do you get when you mix Siegfried and Roy with Martha Stewart, then toss in a pinch of Prince?

That’s right. You get German designer Harald Glööckler, seen here promoting his new wallpaper collection “Glööckler by Marburg” in Berlin today.

Here’s a Glööckler primer. (He’s the inspiration for Sacha Baron Cohen‘s alter-ego Bruno, they say.) Harald calls himself “The Prince of Pompöös.”

The location is the Hotel de Rome, of course.  I do dig those dog-head armrests.

Glööckler says he is “the most glamorous, the most eccentric German fashion designer,” and there seems to be little dispute on the latter point, at least.

Goodbye for now!
