On the last day of my US-trip I had a little spare time, and decided to have a stroll through the trend-district Bushwick. I was wearing a falling-apart straw-hat. Also known as circular saw.
The pictures of me and my new Bushwick buddies were taken by Mr. Michael Moser. A photographer who lives in New York, and who’s international break-through, we are very sure, is soon to come.
This way, to see the first series, which we produced together in New York.
That a technical instrument is inspiring to me, happens almost never to never. The last time must have been in 1998, when I bought a pocket vagina, which inspired me to have a romantic, twelve-seconds-lasting tête-à-tête. Afterwards there was not much. All in general.
But that has changed. For my new cell phone (a Xperia Z2 by Sony) I got a brand new microphone (view the picture above) with which I have been running around the streets of Berlin, just to show it to all kind of friends and to understand every sophistical sentence. The advantage: Different from the classic cell-phone audio recording, one understands stuff. Crazy! That is 2014!
And the stuff that I heard, simply was the best. My friends seem to be the smartest people on earth. Therefore it would be nothing but rude, not to share it with the rest of the world.
And just like that we are talking about inspiration again: Inspired by the cleverness of my friends, there is going to be a short-interview series here at Dandy Diary, called ‘Dandy Talks’, in which illustrious people like the flirt-legend Philip von Mollenkott or barkeeper-legend Quid Haden are sharing their tips and advises in what they do best. One can be - yes ! - excited.
In his latest campaign, he concentrates on the ‘model-of-the-moment’ Edie Campbell, or on her family.
In the video and on the pictures of the campaign, you can see Campbells mother, father, sister, brother and a wild bunch of cousins. Our favourite: her brother Arthus, who’s mullet is longer than Toni Garrn’s legs.
The family-history is showing a reference to the ‘mother / daughter / logo’ by Lanvin. In the campaign-video, which is three minutes long, one can see the family-members playing soccer, hugging each other or just babble along. And, not to forget, the horse of Edie Campbell. Like in all Lanvin videos, also the chubby Elbaz has his scene.
The campaign was shot – as one realises quickly because of the set – by the visionary Tim Walker. Guy Stephens was responsible for the video.
Next Level Yeezus
Way too fucking early we are flying to Vienna today - if the Lufthansa-Workwarriors let us, of course.
Reason for our journey is the FASHION CAMP that will take place in Vienna, and to which we have been invited to talk in front of an audience, how to blog successful about fashion. Of course, we have no idea, how to manage this, but we are not afraid to make up a story of success, consisting of false facts and knowledge we learned on the short flight to Vienna.
We will discuss – and hopefully fight a little - in a plenum with our favourite Blogger-Collegue Katja (Boss at LesMads) and Kira (Editor in Chief of INDIE Mag, material girl, The Pet Fanclub and MONKIE-Magazine). Anne, Bloggerin at Blica, will moderate everything. The Discussion is scheduled for 4.40 pm and will take place for approximately two hours. Enough time for us, to start a little dispute.
In the evening there is, of course, a party and a dinner with the possibility to watch us during our real success-story: drinking.
If you want to join us (if this is even possible on such short notice), you can probably register at the Fashion Camp-Homepage.
Despite the horribly early flight, we are looking forward to seeing Katja, Kira and all the other hot Blogger-Bees.
See you in Vienna!
