One of the highlights of the Copenhagen Fashion Week surely was Asger Juel Larsen. The Dane, who studied at the London College of Fashion and cleared away the first prize, had a show there, on a way too early Friday afternoon at one o’clock.
The complexity of his Spring/Summer collection for the coming year can really amaze: from monochrome shirt-pants-jacket combinations, over shimmering bomber jackets with hoods, allover skull prints, midriff sweaters, yard-long raincoats and three-quarter-long pants (absolutely super-trendy!), to gothic dresses and gowns, as well as a complete look of the gothic, abstract tribals (!) and neon colors combined.
While the gothic stuff makes us shudder shudder a little due to the Nu-Grave reference times, we find the three-quarter pants, bomber jackets and the all-over prints awesome. This collection is simply too much of a whole shebang.
The variety of trends that Asger Juel Larsen picks up and continues, makes many of his fellow designers look quite pale. Not only in Copenhagen – but also worldwide.
PS: If we may trust our rumor-trained ears, it looks like Asger Juel Larsen is soon moving to Berlin. That would be of crazy profit for the local fashion business.
Quiz-question: which fashion-blogger is unable to write a full sentence, is licking his own asshole everyday and still earns more money than you, who has an abhorred office-job (about 15.000,- Dollar per month)?
No, it is not Sami Slimani – he owns more. And it is not Jessica Weiß - she knows how to write (and does not lick her own ass, as far as we know).
It is Bodhi. And different from Sami Slimani, Bodi is a dog.
The dog earns about 15.000,- Dollar per month with fashion-blogging. And all of that, just because his owner had the world-greatest-ideam to put men’s clothes on the dog – and than had the brilliant idea, to make a blog out of it.
Fashion brands as AMERICAN APPAREL, GANT and ASOS are paying hundreds of dollars, so that Bodhi is wearing their clothes. Well, if nobody else does it (besides maybe Sami - here for example).
We are definitely picking up role-models, looking at the top-earners Bodhi and Sami and are starting to smell our own assholes again. Maybe then we are finally going to have the style and the money.
