Berlin Fashion Week is over but the hate remains. War es vorher vor allem ein digitales, auf Kleine-Jungs-Blogs gezeigtes Phänomen, wurde es in Berlin greifbar: the London label “Boy” seems to be totally “in” again. Und das vor allem bei Jungs, die gerne Frauenhosen, Absatzschuhe und schwarzes Make Up tragen.
The terrible in ”Boy” is not coquetting with nazi-symbols, which, given the British punk-sosialization, even belongs to an interior of a 70s label. First of all, it’s the fact that “Boy” combines the aesthetics of Nu Grave with sloganness of 1990s – and that, in the year 2012, is the worst one can think of.
We’re absolutely not in the mood for either uppercase slogans, or the black-black, tight pants, silver jewelry, crosses, asymmetrical haircuts and the leather boots of the rivet-occupied Nu Grave.
To make it short: “Boy” is approximately as cool as an Undercut.
Quiz-question: which fashion-blogger is unable to write a full sentence, is licking his own asshole everyday and still earns more money than you, who has an abhorred office-job (about 15.000,- Dollar per month)?
No, it is not Sami Slimani – he owns more. And it is not Jessica Weiß - she knows how to write (and does not lick her own ass, as far as we know).
It is Bodhi. And different from Sami Slimani, Bodi is a dog.
The dog earns about 15.000,- Dollar per month with fashion-blogging. And all of that, just because his owner had the world-greatest-ideam to put men’s clothes on the dog – and than had the brilliant idea, to make a blog out of it.
Fashion brands as AMERICAN APPAREL, GANT and ASOS are paying hundreds of dollars, so that Bodhi is wearing their clothes. Well, if nobody else does it (besides maybe Sami - here for example).
We are definitely picking up role-models, looking at the top-earners Bodhi and Sami and are starting to smell our own assholes again. Maybe then we are finally going to have the style and the money.
