Swiss label has shown their new collection during Bread & Butter (BBB) fashion fair. hat die schweizer Marke STRELLSON ihre neue Kollektion gezeigt. We were, unfortunately, too busy with cleaning up and criminal complaints in the aftermath of our party and couldn’t drop by.
Thanks internet, we’ve found a short video by STRELLSON for BBB which made us curious.
So we’ve simply asked the creative director of the brand, Marco Tomasi (47), a few questions about new STRELLSON collection and about coming trends in men’s fashion.
Marco, what’s new in the coming season?
There is a lot that is new at Strellson. Related to the collection, we are bringing out a Strellson Premium Spring/Summer 2013 Capsule collection on the topic “Black and White”; glenchecks, pepitas, houndstooth are combined with prints and color blocks. This involves combination of tradition and modernity.
What kind of man did you have in mind when you designed the collection?
We always think of the same man when dealing with the new collection: a confident, modern man who knows what he wants and brings his own personality into line. Likewise, at the beginning of each collection the essence of the brand is in focus.
In the video to your BBB one can see many shades of blue. What colors will be announced in the coming season?
Besides the blue storyline that’s inspired by Shades of Indigo, more color schemes such as “Dark Red, Red, Orange” and “Olive-green, Lemon” color family as the trend. It is important to put these colors not only as contrasts, but to combine the total look.
What do you think of the current sportswear trend?
The Olympics certainly have an above-average influence on activewear brands . Active sportswear has been influencing various fields of fashion for a rather long time and has thereby set too many new trends.
What’s your guess? Next year, the big trend in menswear.
Everything’s becoming cleaner, more formal, but in a natural, self-evident kind of way. Clothing as part of a man’s style and way of being.

We always wanted to see the Simpsons like this:
from head to toe in hyped streetwear-brands. Tommy Bates has put the heroes of his favourite comic-series in designs by Pigalle, Off-White, Supreme, BAPE, 10 Deep and other hip streetwear-labels.
The illustrator of Bart Simpsons, Ned Flanders, Comic Book Guy, Montgomery Burns, Homer Simpson and Moe Szyslak organized a streetwear-makeover for them. More illustrations by Bates can be found on his Instagram Account.
As if we didn’t have had enough to do, our party, fashion week, bell-bottoms and those alpacas, there was also a camera-team following us in the middle of january, from the favourite tv-channel of all smarties: ARTE.
Well, well – therefore there are again nice Dandy-videos (including porno-extracts), unseen pictures of our crazily-wild scandalous party and finally also a close-up of the alpaca ‘Ferdinand’ to watch. Already for the last part, it was already worth it.
And hey, this is ARTE. Not ProSieben. That is gratifying. Even for us extreme haters.
You can watch the whole show here, for the next three months. Do it, homies, otherwise there is punishment!
P.S.: That we are in the very same show as the god of trouble and Liam-bro Noel Gallagher, is of-course nothing but the highlight of our career.
The last time, that blinky blinky shoes were that popular, was in the 90s.
Back then LA GEAR was ‘the shit’ with their blinking soles. Now, one MUST (!) have a pair of KangaROOS x Dandy Diary shoes, to be part of the cool kids in school and to not get beaten up by the others.
RAF SIMONS seems to have realized at the same time as us, that it is time for a revival of the shoes with the ‘blinky blinky’ element and designed the Adidas x Raf Simons Platfrom Lace shoes.
Who does not have enough cash to afford the RAF’s or ROOS (both not really cheap), can shop the, in-comparison cheap, alternative at TOPSHOP. A shoe, which sole is completly blinking.
The shoe-trend is going to be, that is our prognosis, causing 57% less traffic-accidents in 2015. Lights on!
As usual terrifc setdesign at Henrik Vibskov!
HOOD BY AIR presented their new collection ‘Daddy’ in a cellar-like setting at the Wall Street, the centrum of finance.
The mastermind behind HBA, Shayne Oliver, showed classics from the world of fashion, like button-down shirts, sweaters and polo t-shirts in the typical unisex Hood by Air Silhouette. Therefore it came to an hybrid between polo shirt and dress. Or camel coat and tank top.
The models wore locks in-front of their mouths and tights over their heads, like burglars. The soundtrack of the show, total freedom, was ended drastically, followed by jazz, underlined with the statement of the Empire:
“I wanna show you a faggot really can run this company”.
It becomes obvious how appreciated HBA is also in the art-world, when looking at the guests who attended the show, for example Klaus Biesenbach and Grace Coddington.
It seems that HBA, even after the diss by their once supporter A$AP ROCKY, is still very hip.
