Berlin Fashion Week: Patrick Mohr Spring/Summer 2013

Patrick Mohr has surprised everyone at berlin Fashion Week with with the presentation of his fashion yet again on Friday.

Instead of imitating all the other designers and set a runway show in a white Mercedes Benz tent at the Victory Column, he invited a few journalists, dozens of bloggers and even more young homosexuals who seemed to appear to all mourn the  Nu Grave-Time and were one and all dressed in black leather to Bayblon cinema in Mitte.

Ten models stood on small white columns in front of the screen, but soon had to go in order to clear the view for what Patrick really wanted to show us: his fashion film “Metamohrphose”.

The lavishly produced film lasts for good 10 minutes. Besides the actor Wilson Gonzalez Ochsenknecht and Bonnie Strange, the owner of a thrift store, all models are primarily from the Hamburg agency PMA. The film “Metamohrphose” was shot in Berlin by Hakan Can.

While the film deserved a decent ovation from the audience at the premiere, it remains pretty unclear, at least for me, what exactly the Spring/Summer 2013 collection by Patrick Mohr looks like.

What you could see were well-known trademarks such as triangles, triangular-cut jeans and casual tank tops. New additions are faded color gradients, large prints and especially bags made ​​of leather with graphic cut outs, and pale-printed scarves.

Bags and scarves are known in the fashion world as an absolute money-maker. Because nothing can generate high revenues, as accessories. Those who don’t believe it, might make a quick call to Marc Jacobs or Louis Vuitton.

Patrick Mohr, meanwhile, can be complimented for a zeitgeisty collection presentation. Let him enjoy fame, glory and money.

IGGY POP: his first Design-Collaboration!

IGGY POP usually does not wear too much: skin-tight leather pants, with that his well-trained, plastic-like upper body. In case the rockstar Iggy gets cold, he puts on a leather jacket.

From now on, The Stooges front-man is going to be seen more wearing a vest. Because Iggy has designed a denim-vest with patches in cooperation with the label SAILOR JERRY. The punk-ish patches are delivered separately, so you can decide yourself which of Iggys hot patches fits you (the selection is: death, shall, triumph). A main inspiration were punks and especially the punkettes of the 70s in London and Los Angeles.

If you walk through the pedestrian zone in your home town, wearing an Iggy Pop THE FLASH vest, every Hells Angels member will freeze out of jealousy, promise. All in all there are 50 vests – each of them signed by hand by Iggy Pop personally. For one of Iggys vest you would have to spare 600 US Dollars.

The deal with Sailor Jerry has been arranged by Matt Sorum of Guns ‘N Roses. A band, which became famous in 90s for their extremely cool bandanas and stars and stripes leggings. The year before, Paul Simonon from The Clash has designed for Sailor Jerry.

Let’s see, which oldie-rockstar is in it the next time!

Dandy Diary Rat-Race

Next to the hard work here at DANDY DIARY, David and me are connected by many things: We were both into our black-haired economics-teacher and into Janine from the first row, we were both fans of BVB in the 90s, we both love the small 0,25 l Heineken-bottles and spicy vegan food, we both read the Spiegel on sundays and, and, and, and, and – there is much more. And: We both hate nothing more than rats.

Actually hatred is very understated. We have a huge fucking fear for them, that bad that David once jumped on the table of a restaurant, screaming, in Shanghai, because he saw a rat passing by, and I had to be aware of the attacks by my siblings, who would always kick against garbage bags in New York City and then rats would jump out, and most of the times cross my feet. Already looking at a rat causes a rigid barrier in us, even-though we are these hard fashion-guys, also high screaming, pure desperation and a few embarrassing jumps. One of us also has wetted himself once out of fear and shock. We will not tell who that was, out of fairness.

When we recently were in Mumbai (India), the, until now, hardest task, concerning rats, has come. About half of the 12 million inhabitants are living in slums, many of them without a solid house and therefore without water and without toilets. Big parts of the city are similar to a garbage field: Plastic garbage everywhere, junk, dead cats, undefinable brown puddles. And there is a frightening amount of rats. Very many. Brutally many. Disgustingly many.

While the people in Mumbai apparently have bigger problems, than taking care of all the nibbling rats in the corners, us idiotic, spoiled western-people were permanently anxious. We were frightened as hell by those beasts – our biggest enemies.

To give you an idea what we looked like speeding through the streets of Mumbai, anxious about meeting a rats, we made a video, which you can see here. In the video we are racing towards the only place where there are no rats: the ocean. There we stayed for three days and nights, close to dehydration, and had us picked up by a golden yacht of our trillionaire-friend, and flew back to the clean, cold and a bit less rat-sy Berlin.

During the rat-race we were wearing Converse Chuck Taylor “Rubber” shoes, David was wearing pants by Weekday and a shirt by Hugo Boss, I was wearing a wifebeater and hotpants by American Apparel.
