The Swedish fast-fashion retailer H&M has beamed the football player and underpant-designer David Beckham on the renowned white cliffs of Dover.
The unique action is of course the advertising for the “David Beckham Underwear” lingerie collection.
Beckham’s collection has been already on the market since February. Contrary to the H&M practices with other guest designers, it seems that the collaboration with David Beckham is a long-term cooperation. Or there are just too many Beckham underpants around the camp, which must be sold urgently. Who knows for sure.
Funnier than the pictures on the chalk cliffs, we found, however, the promotion of Beckham’s ultra-sexy than wife Victoria Beckham: Posh Spice posted in early February, the launch of the collection, a picture on Twitter, where she her husband attacked the bag – at least halfways .
The shining Berlin-based tie-manufacture EDSO KRONEN, which mainly became famous through it’s even shinier owners Günther H. Stelly and Jan-Henrik M. Scheper-Stuke, has announced insolvency already back in September 2014, which has been reported now. A few days ago, most of the enterprise was sold to a Swiss investor.
Their innsolvency administrator, Christian Otto from the office of Hermann Wienberg Willhelm, says: ‘The manufactory will continue to produce as usual, also all stores should continue to be open. All work-places are staying.’
After HERR VON EDEN has also announced insolvency, even if it was in a very different way, some time ago, it is now hitting the next shining player of the german male fashion sector and well-known brand, which are producing high-quality hand-made fashion and extravagant marketing. That is: not a good sign.
Jan-Henrik M. Scheper-Stuke, who took over EDSOR KRONEN in 2010 after Günther H. Stelly, is going to travel to Switzerland for meetings with the new owner. He told DANDY DIARY: ‘There are important issues on the agenda, which need to be solved.’
That does not sound like an ending-ending. We want to wish him success!

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)
