Of course, we haven’t just designed a shirt and slammed you against the skull. No, of course, we have once again made a film, to bring the idea of our SIGNUM x DANDY DIARY shirt closer.
And that’s the point: in Green Invasion, the Berghain bouncer Sven Marquardt, fashion journalist Jan Joswig, a goat, Prada Model Frederick Schaller, musician David Moon and a bunch of drunken punks worship a four-meter-high totem. They are celebrating an orgiastic, destructive and very peculiar exhibition – whose sanctuary can be only one thing: the DANDY DIARY x SIGNUM -shirt.
And who wants it a little deeper, more boring and conceptual, should quickly read, what we’ve written out of sheer bravado in our press release for the film: “The elusive unease about the hidden evil in the forest goes hand in hand with an already almost occult fascination for the beauty of the original, the microcosm of the forest, goes into the living and dying so unaffected by civilization. The forest is always a poetical vanishing point, which can serve as a refuge from the industrialized working society. The forest as a possibility is always present. “
Who is eligible under this more like not quite understandable surge has still not got it correctly, what it had to do with our shirt, read following remarks: “The forest is our world’s volatile desire for solitude, serenity and naturalness. With the shirt, we can carry this mysticism, as a living, moving tree into the urban areas of our city – and thus break the separation between nature and civilization, at least aesthetically. “
Yes, we’ve actually written that. But that, of course, doesn’t matter. Just watch “Green Invasion”, you’ll know what the point is – namely, Mad Max in the forest.
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’!
