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.
A dick was enough to make the fashion world freak: RICK OWENS - sent out his models with coats and tunics, which were cut out at the crouch or had a hole, on the runway.
Under the designs of the ‘prince of darkness’ the models wore nothing, therefore the viewers, and a few minutes later also for the rest of world, could spot some penises.
Rick Owens told the i:D magazine backstage, how it happened that he broke that taboo:
“I thought it was the most simple, primal gesture-and you know I love a simply tiny, little gesture that packs the wallop. Not many people can do that. I mean, it’s a straight world now. And it also, I think, says something about being independent. Who else can really get away with that kind of stuff? It’s a corporate world.”
To show some balls – apparently a sign of independence. Rick Owens is one of the few independent designers, since his label does not belong to a luxury-conglomerate like LVMH or PPR.
The last time, that Rick Owens was shocking the fashion world is not so long ago: In 2013 he sent out raging dancers on the runway.

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)
