There are rarely events which are worth to get up early for (7.30 am! Horror!) – and then I even have to fly to Dusseldorf. One of the best events though is brought to me today by our current marketer Glam Media (marketer = those people, who get us Mc Donald’s and Homedepot-Ads on Dandy Diary):
Glam invited Top-Blogger-Babes such as Mary Scherpe (Stil in Berlin), Katja Schweitzberger (LesMads), Ariane Stippa (Primer & Lacquer) and Katja Hentschel (Glamcanyon) to Dusseldorf, to talk about Top-Trends in the Field, brand cooperations, reader commitment and best cases (at least W&V says that) at the Hyatt-Hotel. I also got invited by Glam Media.
I am really looking forward to seeing my colleagues and I will try to get some snapshots of Mary, Katja S., Ari and Katja H. via Instagram.
Cross your fingers, dear readers, voyeurs etc.!
See you in a bit, dear colleagues!
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)
