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.
Great! New suitcases by SAMSONITE. Thanks, yo!
Even that the racing-trend is still very in, and one could hardly do anything wrong by showing up at a party with a proper formula-1-racing-overall, there are a few occasions, where you have have to wear a smoking. If u win an Oscar or the Nobel-prize, for instance. Or if u have a new sponsor.
That is also the reason, why the formula-1 champions Lewis Hamilton and vice-champion Nico Rosberg have changed their racing clothes for some more delicate twines. From the season of 2015 on, HUGO BOSS is going to be the new partner of their racing team MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS.
We think: both of them look tiptop. Also, or especially, because of the awesome earrings, which Hamilton is wearing, very nonchalant, with his smoking. Very classy.

After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The 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’!
