We’ve known that BARBOUR jackets are badass since we’ve read “Faserland”, at latest. And that WOOD WOOD is cool, we’ve known since we’ve first been to the shop.
Therefore, we’re excited that BARBOUR and WOOD WOOD have jointly launched a renewed classic British waxed jacket. The Danes from WOOD WOOD have added subtle color blocking, strengthened outer pockets and added some leather elements. The iconographic style of the jacket, in which the whole generations of land gentry strolled through the forest, they have not changed.
Thus is the “Barbour X Wood Wood 10th Anniversary Jacket” not really a must-have – at least not if you already have a Barbour jacket in your closet.
Should someone have the audacity and, on the other hand, no such jacket, he should order one in the end of September in the Wood Wood-Onlineshop.
ALEXANDER WANG is daring to touch another, more peripheral, fashion-issue after the H&M-cooperation: Interior.
He designed a ‘Bean Bag Chair’ for the Italian label Poltrona Frau and a booze-case – or rather wrapped it with black leather.
For 8.800,- dollars you can buy the luxurious bean bag, for 18.500,- dollar the box. One can only hope, that Wang used his own ball-skin for the pieces, considering the price. Everything else would be: rude.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
