Good Read: “Behind the Clothes” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung)

It’s always been a childhood dream of mine to see my fuck face on the same newspaper page as the gorgeous face of VOGUE editor-in-chief Christiane Arp.

As I was sitting in the comfortably overcrowded ICE train yesterday I opened the FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE SONNTAGSZEITUNG (FAS) and saw my dream had come true. I had an incredibly hard time to keep my borderline lust-like enthusiasm in check. To get over the whole situation I locked myself on the on-board bathroom to consider ending my as of yet rather stagnating career in the fashion industry: What on earth was now left to accomplish?

I eventually got over it.

What remains is the happiness about the estimated FAS colleagues apparently having enjoyed our Fashion Week Opening Party a lot. Here an almost complete excerpt from the text.

“The arguably most spectacular party to kick off the fashion week is not organized by one of the big brands but by Jakob Haupt (photo) and David Roth. Their men’s fashion blog “Dandy Diary” has already established itself as a brand: Honest texts, bold videos and parties with no restraint, regret, or remorse. While last year it was a big flamboyant fuss involving circus tent and elephants, this time Haupt und Roth invited to party with the punks who provide beer showers for stand-off-ish fashion girls. Drugs, moshing, cops, jail: Haupt und Roth provoke but they’re authentic. That’s how Dandy Diary forms the anti-thesis to the majority of German fashion blogs.”

For using the beautiful and too infrequently used word “Bohei” (seldom word, means “fuss”) alone, we could give author Florian Siebeck a big hug. A fantastic guy, that one!

We’re going to go subscribe to the FAS – and highly official add “Bohei” to our vocabulary.
