Wir hatten neulich ja schon darauf hingewiesen, dass es im Winter schwer angesagt sein wird, unter dem Hemd noch einen weiteren Kragen zu tragen. In besonderer Perfektion hat das jetzt auch DIOR HOMME in seiner Winterkampagne gezeigt. Dort sehen wir einen schmalen Stehkragen unter dem eigentlichen Hemdkragen. Sehr gut! Fotografiert wurde die Kampagne von Karl Lagerfeld, gestylt vom Dänen Jacob K – und allem Anschein nach richtet sie sich in erster Linie an die kaufkräftigen Märkte in Fernost. We have already pointed out recently, that it will be super trendy in winter, to wear a yet another collar under the shirt. DIOR HOMME has now shown it in their winter campaign in particular perfection. There we can see a narrow collar underneath the actual shirt collar. Very good! The campaign was photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, styled by the dane Jacob K – and apparently it is directed primarily for the affluent markets in the Far East. Zestril
Great! New suitcases by SAMSONITE. Thanks, yo!

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’!
