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”.
Today the people of Scotland are deciding in a referendum, if they want to be independent, or want to continue being a part of the British kingdom. Ex-corner-and-free-kick-specialist and fashion icon David Beckham has militated against the split-off of Scotland in an open later.
‘Becks’ says, watch out, get your tissues, because now it is getting emotional: that Scotland and England have more in common, then what separates them.VIVIENNE WESTWOOD apparently has a different opinion:
Westwood sent her models on the catwalk, at her Red Label SS 2015 show during London fashion week, with blue ‘YES’ buttons, which were pinned on hats and revers.
Westwood, who’s always used her fashion shows as a platform for political messages, also put notes on the chairs of the guests before the show, which had the following statement on them:
‘I am so excited. I hope that the Scots will win. It could be the turning point towards a better world. They could lead by example.’ Backstage, after the show, her words in-favour of the split-off of Scotland, were even clearer: ‘I hate England … I like Scotland because somehow I think they are better than we are. They are more democratic.’
The fashion by Vivienne Westwood – doesn’t matter in which line – has crossed its zenith. When Vivienne’s pieces become fashion (again), then it’s mostly old ideas, like the ‘Mountain Hat’, which are becoming successful again.
But – if you are not considering her fashion – it is fascinating with what kind of radicalness Westwood is combining fashion in politics, although her high age (73 years). She knows how to use fashion as a platform for her opinion, as well as hardly anyone else in the fashion business.
Opel-Gang in Riga!
DANDY DIARY X TRACHTEN ANGERMAIER – Oktoberfest Leather Shorts
At the beginning of the year, ADIDAS announced a collaboration together with Pharrell Williams, that shouldn’t be a one-season-thing.
The cooperation between the Herzogenaurach-based sports-article producer and the US musician is going to be a fixed thing, beyond a few season, is the declaration. The first pictures – more or less a preview – have been crossing the net today.
Two classics have been dared by Pharrell: the super-star training-jacket with the iconic Adidas-stripes and the Stan Smith – both items are going to be available in red, blue and black.
The jacket will cost about 1000 Dollar, the Stan Smith 150 Dollar. From the 20th of september on, the first pieces of the collaboration will be delivered to selected sneaker-stores, concept-stores and adidas originals flagship stores.
