Today again, we have an absolute blast of a message: Donatella Versace – the sister of the great Gianni Versace, chief designer at VERSACE, blondest woman in Italy, brutally sexy – selected us as a partner for the kick-off of her new digital campaign and its online shop.
And as if it wasn’t crazy enough already, we’re in good company, too. Beside DANDY DIARY, our beloved blogs, AMLUL, BRYANBOY, KATE LOVES ME, MODEPILOT and STYLEBUBBLE will participate. These are the top players of international fashion blogging. Well, yeah. And us.
Donatella has, so far, we can already tell you, selected an outfit from the latest Versace collection both for David and me. What outfits these will be, we don’t know, and are very excited about what Dona (as we call her) decided. I’m secretly hoping for a studded full-body leather outfit for David – so that he would never again have to pay admission at Berghain.
Those who don’t want to miss seeing how David and me look like in the loud, colorful, insane and overloaded Italian outfits Donatella chose for us, should logically be constantly surfing here with us on DANDY DIARY or check VERSACE-Facebook page. You’ll be kept up to date there, too. And via Versace-Newsletter, of course.
If we weren’t the only heterosexual participants (from the male side, of course) in this action, we would write something like”!! Oh my gosh It’s Donatella This is soooo C-R-A-Z-Y” at the end of this post.
But it doesn’t work that way so we close this post with casual baritones: “Yo”.
The shining Berlin-based tie-manufacture EDSO KRONEN, which mainly became famous through it’s even shinier owners Günther H. Stelly and Jan-Henrik M. Scheper-Stuke, has announced insolvency already back in September 2014, which has been reported now. A few days ago, most of the enterprise was sold to a Swiss investor.
Their innsolvency administrator, Christian Otto from the office of Hermann Wienberg Willhelm, says: ‘The manufactory will continue to produce as usual, also all stores should continue to be open. All work-places are staying.’
After HERR VON EDEN has also announced insolvency, even if it was in a very different way, some time ago, it is now hitting the next shining player of the german male fashion sector and well-known brand, which are producing high-quality hand-made fashion and extravagant marketing. That is: not a good sign.
Jan-Henrik M. Scheper-Stuke, who took over EDSOR KRONEN in 2010 after Günther H. Stelly, is going to travel to Switzerland for meetings with the new owner. He told DANDY DIARY: ‘There are important issues on the agenda, which need to be solved.’
That does not sound like an ending-ending. We want to wish him success!

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)
