Since we were bored recently, we decided to take a stroll to the Bauhaus archive and were hanging out in front of their door.
In contrast to the occasion, we wore two de-conceptualised outfits, which by coincidence looked like the ones lying in the rented Lithuanian Mercedes. David was wearing a T-shirt and jeans by WEEKDAY, shoes by RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS, a jeans-jacket by DIESEL and a vintage-hair-cut from the 90s. I wore a black T-shirt by BOSS (Turkey fake), pants by G-STAR RAW, tennis-socks by H&M, a silk-bomber-jacket by DIESEL, shoes by PALLADIUM (of-course the model, that Brad Pitt is wearing all the time) and sunglasses by LESPECS.
After a few minutes we were chased by the guard and his dog (it was a leashed sheep dog) away from the court. Apparently we did not fit the concept.
Since we can’t wear only white sneakers, and because there is nothing cooler, than a sneaker that reminds one optically of a snub-nosed revolver or of a broken nose of an amateur-boxer, we recommend you the ZX 500 2.0 “Black Snake” by ADIDAS – even if it’s name is stupidly technocratic.
You can purchase the shoe for amazingly cheap 80,- dollars, for example here. And please do not be fooled by the fact that the shoe is described as a women’s shoe. That is far behind times. We at Dandy Diary are post-gender - and the shoe is available up to size 45.
You cant go wrong with a black sneaker that looks like a snubnosed revolver. Our pick of the day Adidas ZX 500 2.0 black snake
A few weeks ago - one recognises easily because of my much darker, much loner and much more felted hair - we had a wild shooting with the photographer Marlen Stahlhuth and her team, in the most beautiful clothes from Herzogaurenach. Of course we wore nothing but ADIDAS (and as mentioned, felted hair).
The complete photo-series is going to be released in August in the ADIDAS ORIGINALS magazine – and we are already excited, to see what we look like. For sure verrrryyy sporty.
For the moment, you (and us! and us!) will have to be pleased with the so-called (ugh!) ‘behind the scenes’-pictures. But maybe that is enough for a quick Five-against-Willy.
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.
