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.
Who, like us, still has troubles managing the t-brake while inline-skating, even after years of practicing, can finally breath out: RICK OWENS has attached a massive brake-block to the current shows, which he designed for ADIDAS as for his fall/winter collection 2014.
We think that that is just fair and imagine through that, that Rick is not the most accomplished blader himself.
We are with you, Rick! Full solidarity with the brake-block-brakes! One with the underdogs!
P.S.: The shoes can be ordered for unattainable 790,- US Dollar, here.
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.

For the so-called “Impossible Project”, our favourite man behind the camera and in-front of the pissoir (look at his Instagram-account for more clarity), he recently followed us to London with a Polaroid-camera and took many pictures, which we are happy to release here.
What you see is: Dandy-Dave, Dandy-Jakob, Dandy-A$AP Rocky, the rapper Skepta, strippers, muscle-boys, asses and a little bit of fashion. Still it was fashion week, there in London, a few weeks ago. Enjoy!
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”.
