AMERCIA’S NEXT TOP MODEL Is Now Featuring Male Models

Finally we know now why head nurse BRYANBOY joined the jury at AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL: From next summer onwards men can join the fun of America’s biggest beauty competition.

TV Broadcaster CWTV say on their blog:

“In Cycle 20, for the first time, male models will be added to the group of contestants competing for the title of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL, and will move into the models’ house alongside the women. Also in Cycle 20, viewers will continue to have a direct impact on the competition by voting for their favorite models though social media, helping decide who gets eliminated and who stays in the running to becoming AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL.”

We can’t wait to see whether the rather bland BRYANBOY will remain as introverted or whether he will finally take on a more active role. And of course we’re also excited to find out if HEIDI KLUM will follow suit with her German version (Germany’s Next Top Model).

Mixed-gender models bunking together in a shared apartment is even further from the actual model routine than the entire show already is anyway. But who cares when we’re being compensated not only with jealousy, envy and bitch fights but now finally also with love, sex and passion in front of the camera.

Beef: Just Cavalli vs. Graffiti-Artists

The Italian power-labels have reached their zenith. Brands with a street-wear background are the spirit of the day. It also does not help, if one decides to print graffities on their designs, to earn some street cedibility, like JUST CAVALLI.

For the spirng/summer collection 2014 by JUST CAVALLI, Cavalli and his team stole graffities by the California-based Mad Society Kings Crew. So obvious, that the copycat-case has been pointed out to the MSK crew. The JUST CAVALLI team even used the acronyms (names) of the artists on their designs.

The MSK crew is sewing them because of violation of copy-right and unfair contest. It does not look bad for the graffiti-gang. At first instance the graffiti-artists Jason “Revok” Williams, Victor “Reyes” Chapa und “Jeffrey “Steel” Rubin, were entitled as rightful.

A mad world, what we are living in, in which used-to-be outlaws of the street are now engaging with the law, to protect their art.

SPECIAL

 

DANDY DIARY-Feature at ARTE

As if we didn’t have had enough to do, our party, fashion week, bell-bottoms and those alpacas, there was also a camera-team following us in the middle of january, from the favourite tv-channel of all smarties: ARTE.

Well, well – therefore there are again nice Dandy-videos (including porno-extracts), unseen pictures of our crazily-wild scandalous party and finally also a close-up of the alpaca ‘Ferdinand’ to watch. Already for the last part, it was already worth it.

And hey, this is ARTE. Not ProSieben. That is gratifying. Even for us extreme haters. 

You can watch the whole show here, for the next three months. Do it, homies, otherwise there is punishment!

P.S.: That we are in the very same show as the god of trouble and Liam-bro Noel Gallagher, is of-course nothing but the highlight of our career. 

TRENDS

 

C’est cool: Patches!

We are urgently asking for jackets, pants or sweaters, which carry an uncountable amount of patches.

Since we do not have time, nor the passion for a fabulous DIY-piece, were hereby want to ask all the PR-agencies on the planet to send us designs by their fashion-designers, which have patches on them (you can find the address in our legal info)

As often, Raf Simons was the pioneer of the trend ‘patches’. Or at least the designer, who’s influence can also be found in the collections by other designers. Simons showed designs in his SS 2015 collection, which showed images of personal memories (friends, family, astronauts, sharks etc.). He used the patches as some sort of mood board.

Kit Neale and Astrid Andersen have refined their pants with patches in their current collections (AW 2015). Sandro PARIS did the same with their already mega-hot leather jackets. And the Danish young designer Martin Mitchell made a jeans-vest.

The rule ‘the more the better’ counts of-course also for the patches trend! Go for it!

FASHION SHOWS

 

New York Fashion Week: Hood by Air AW 2015

HOOD BY AIR presented their new collection ‘Daddy’ in a cellar-like setting at the Wall Street, the centrum of finance.

The mastermind behind HBA, Shayne Oliver, showed classics from the world of fashion, like button-down shirts, sweaters and polo t-shirts in the typical unisex Hood by Air Silhouette. Therefore it came to an hybrid between polo shirt and dress. Or camel coat and tank top.

The models wore locks in-front of their mouths and tights over their heads, like burglars. The soundtrack of the show, total freedom, was ended drastically, followed by jazz, underlined with the statement of the Empire:

“I wanna show you a faggot really can run this company”.

It becomes obvious how appreciated HBA is also in the art-world, when looking at the guests who attended the show, for example Klaus Biesenbach and Grace Coddington.

It seems that HBA, even after the diss by their once supporter A$AP ROCKY, is still very hip.
