Kanye West’s creative spills in the world of fashion have not been a success so far. The press is not taking him seriously, sales are stagnating.
But now, so the word on the street, the US rapper seems to have found a collaboration partner whose ‘gloved’ hands turn everything into gold that they touch. According to New York Post, West and Lagerfeld met to discuss a collaboration.
According to the source, they met at Mercer Hotel in New York for lunch. The discussion are said to have been intense Whatever that is supposed to mean. It remains to be seen what exactly a co-operation between the pony tail-wearing fashion guru and the US Rapper could look like.
A glimpse of hope remains that we won’t be subjected to Karl Lagerfeld collaboration 3223 but that the duo is planning a song together in which MC Lagerfeld will show us his mad killah rap skills in his old days.
Great! New suitcases by SAMSONITE. Thanks, yo!
Dandy of the Week: Daniel Sturridge
A Dandy sees red
After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
