Together with Topman we looked for the Germany’s first Topman We’vw found two guys who are, from now on, to be called ambassadors.accompany us in our daily work, which is known to consist of champagne receptions, photoshoots, glamorous interviews, fashion weeks and after show parties. Alexander does so in Berlin, Stefan – in Hamburg.
They’re gonna report on what it’s like, to dive into the exciting, dazzling and ice-cold fashion world on the “Der erste Topman in Deutschland” Facebook page.
Also, I’ve made a short iPhone video interview with the Hamburg-Topman Ambassador Stefan on Friday afternoon. In this interview he explains what we have planned for the coming weeks and what his strengths and weaknesses are.
We look forward to continuing to work with our Topmen.
ALEXANDER WANG is daring to touch another, more peripheral, fashion-issue after the H&M-cooperation: Interior.
He designed a ‘Bean Bag Chair’ for the Italian label Poltrona Frau and a booze-case – or rather wrapped it with black leather.
For 8.800,- dollars you can buy the luxurious bean bag, for 18.500,- dollar the box. One can only hope, that Wang used his own ball-skin for the pieces, considering the price. Everything else would be: rude.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
