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.
Sure, mean-while every single one of you stylers can call one, or maybe even more-so, five bomber-jackets, his own. Because the bomber-jacket trend has been in since many years (and still does not seem to have an end).
In-case you belong to the one-percent of the DANDY DIARY-readers, which do not own such a jacket, we advise you to get this one, by STAMPD LA.
Why? Because it a) does not look like the next cheap-bomber-jacket by ASOS and b) has those fucking cool 2002 Helmut Lang bondage-straps (which we know because of fourpins). Plus you c) REALLY need to have a bomber-jacket by now.
Here you can buy the jacket for about 300,- Dollars – which is more than you would spend on ASOS for a whole outfit, but less, than for a 2002 HELMUT LANG-piece. Fair enough!
Opel-Gang in Riga!

At the beginning of the year, ADIDAS announced a collaboration together with Pharrell Williams, that shouldn’t be a one-season-thing.
The cooperation between the Herzogenaurach-based sports-article producer and the US musician is going to be a fixed thing, beyond a few season, is the declaration. The first pictures – more or less a preview – have been crossing the net today.
Two classics have been dared by Pharrell: the super-star training-jacket with the iconic Adidas-stripes and the Stan Smith – both items are going to be available in red, blue and black.
The jacket will cost about 1000 Dollar, the Stan Smith 150 Dollar. From the 20th of september on, the first pieces of the collaboration will be delivered to selected sneaker-stores, concept-stores and adidas originals flagship stores.
