Berlin Fashion Week: Julian Zigerli Spring/Summer 2013

The fact that we find Julian Zigerli  so hot that it almost borders with lust, all Dandy Diary readers should have  by now noticed. And so it came naturally, as it had to: Julian Zigerli showed his new collection – and were excited. Are are still.

The Swiss designer remains true to his style, and leaves us marching through the world in large, neon-colored patterns in Spring/Summer 2013. We find that super.

Also back with this: backpacks, his jacket/backpack combinations, holey caps and shoes, patterned bags, plenty of hot shorts and Velcro strips.

While Zigerli still used floral pattern in the  Spring/Summer 2012 collection, his new summer collection is much more abstract. The sporty elements are also aligned to the overall look in favor of a more unified image .

This is definitely and by far the best, most innovative and interesting collection of current Berlin Fashion Week.

If Zigerli goes on like this, our obsession may soon come out in form of a sexual assault. Herewith, he’s been explicitly warned.

Million Dollar Deal: PUMA wants Rihanna as a Designer

The german sportswear-manufcatorer PUMA is currently vying for a favour by RIHANNA. Rumours say that the enterprise from Herzogenaurach has offered the barbadian singer more than a million dollars, if she designs for PUMA

So far, so uninteresting.

In case that Rihanna accepts the offer, she would not only be a designer for PUMA, which has already been done by Beoncé’s sister Solange Knowles, but would also mean that she is not allowed to wear clothes by ADIDAS anymore from the moment of signing the contract, on. That is written in the contract between PUMA and Riri, if you want to believe some insiders.

We think that something like that is really great. On one side, because it is very amusing, that the enmity, which started in 1948, between ADIDAS and PUMA, is still on-going. On the other side, because we hope, that that goes along with Jeremy Scott losing his job as a designer for ADIDAS. Rihanna is one of the most consistent promoters of his horribly loud designs.

Lumbersexuality – simply fat, old Hipster!

After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?

Media as The GuardianThe Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.

But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).

Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.

The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.

Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
