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.

Insolvency: Berlin-based Tie-Manfucature EDSOR KRONEN sold to Swiss Investor

The shining Berlin-based tie-manufacture EDSO KRONEN, which mainly became famous through it’s even shinier owners Günther H. Stelly and Jan-Henrik M. Scheper-Stuke, has announced insolvency already back in September 2014, which has been reported now. A few days ago, most of the enterprise was sold to a Swiss investor.

Their innsolvency administrator, Christian Otto from the office of Hermann Wienberg Willhelm, says: ‘The manufactory will continue to produce as usual, also all stores should continue to be open. All work-places are staying.’

After HERR VON EDEN has also announced insolvency, even if it was in a very different way, some time ago, it is now hitting the next shining player of the german male fashion sector and well-known brand, which are producing high-quality hand-made fashion and extravagant marketing. That is: not a good sign.

Jan-Henrik M. Scheper-Stuke, who took over EDSOR KRONEN in 2010 after Günther H. Stelly, is going to travel to Switzerland for meetings with the new owner. He told DANDY DIARY: ‘There are important issues on the agenda, which need to be solved.’

That does not sound like an ending-ending. We want to wish him success!

No-Go: Coat Slinging!

 

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)
