Hamburgs best Menswear-Shop, the BOYS BOYS BOYS-Store, is closing it’s doors – and won’t open them again. This is complete shit, to put it mildly. After all, there is still a lot to do in Hamburg, when it comes to Menswear.
Of course the BOYS BOYS BOYS-Founder, -Pioneer and -Boss Yves Hanke is not doing this for fun. The Store has been somehow his home, in the past three years. It is likely, that he did’nt spend more time somewhere else than there. This leads us to the one, crucial question: Why?
Yves, as the good guy he is, gave us a logic answer to this, which still leaves us wistful:
“I am closing the store to concentrate on online shopping and – which is even more important – to push the label BOYS BOYS BOYS in the right direction. During the past three years, the business at the store in Hamburg, the research, the exhibitions etc., took so much time, that I had no time for anything else.
The Shop has been – and still is – my Baby, in which I invested a lot of time, energy and work. Although the biggest part of this was just administration. I am nerdy sometimes, I also like Excel a lot. But if there is nothing else than Retail Operations, it’s not interesting for me.
I am eagerly awaiting the upcoming time. I gained a lot of experiences with the Shop and established with BOYS BOYS BOYS a brand – which became well known with only three products; a Tank, a Tee and a simple Totebag. I want to use this awareness, build it up and push it forward.”

New York, New York!
According to an insider, ADIDAS is currently looking for a new CEO. The contract of the previous boss Herbert Hainer is actually running until 2017 but still the search has intensified.
It is ‘very uncertain’, if Hainer will function for the rest of his tenure. A few investors have already said last year, that they would prefer a faster swap at the peak. UNION INVESTMENT-fonds-manager (o,89% share) Ingo Speich said: ‘We do not have trust anymore.’
It is criticised, that Hainer does not manage to position ADIDAS right against it’s biggest competitor NIKE and is even loosing shares in it’s home country to the Americans.
Now it is said, that a new strategy is only convincing with a new leader. After 14 years as the head of ADIDAS, Herbert Hainer can not be addressed by that.
If KANYE WEST has put himself in the game already for the position of the CEO, has not been confirmed yet by our ADIDAS-insider.
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.
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!
As usual terrifc setdesign at Henrik Vibskov!
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.
