British Fashion Awards 2012: Nominees

The British Fashion Awards 2012 nominees have been announced today. There are 12 categories, including Emerging Talent Award – Menswear, Menswear Designer and Designer of the Year.

Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou and Stella McCartney have been nominated for Designer of the Year. We tap for Mary, ‘the queen of digital printing’.

Kim Jones of Louis Vuitton, Richard James and Oliver Spencer are nominated for the Menswear Designer. Designer Kim Jones is currently celebrating big success with Louis Vuitton. He provides the hipness of Louis Vuitton, so we firmly believe in Kim Jones’ glorious victory.

And in the third category, Emerging Talent Award, Agi & Sam, Jonathan Saunders and Lou Dalton have been nominated. We support Agi & Sam and keep our fingers crossed for their colorful fashion.

On Tuesday, 27 November, the British Fashion Awards take place, we’ll know more then.

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’!
