De-Conceptualised Bauhaus

Since we were bored recently, we decided to take a stroll to the Bauhaus archive and were hanging out in front of their door.

In contrast to the occasion, we wore two de-conceptualised outfits, which by coincidence looked like the ones lying in the rented Lithuanian Mercedes. David was wearing a T-shirt and jeans by WEEKDAY, shoes by RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS, a jeans-jacket by DIESEL and a vintage-hair-cut from the 90s. I wore a black T-shirt by BOSS (Turkey fake)pants by G-STAR RAW, tennis-socks by H&M, a silk-bomber-jacket by DIESEL, shoes by PALLADIUM (of-course the model, that Brad Pitt is wearing all the time) and sunglasses by LESPECS.

After a few minutes we were chased by the guard and his dog (it was a leashed sheep dog) away from the court. Apparently we did not fit the concept.

The Sub-Nosed Revolver of all Sneakers: ADIDAS ZX 500 2.0 ‘Black Snake’

Since we can’t wear only white sneakers, and because there is nothing cooler, than a sneaker that reminds one optically of a snub-nosed revolver or of a broken nose of an amateur-boxer, we recommend you the ZX 500 2.0 “Black Snake” by ADIDAS – even if it’s name is stupidly technocratic.

You can purchase the shoe for amazingly cheap 80,- dollars, for example here. And please do not be fooled by the fact that the shoe is described as a women’s shoe. That is far behind times. We at Dandy Diary are post-gender - and the shoe is available up to size 45.

Behind the Scenes: DANDY DIARY x ADIDAS ORIGINALS Shoot

A few weeks ago - one recognises easily because of my much darker, much loner and much more felted hair - we had a wild shooting with the photographer Marlen Stahlhuth and her team, in the most beautiful clothes from Herzogaurenach. Of course we wore nothing but ADIDAS (and as mentioned, felted hair).

The complete photo-series is going to be released in August in the ADIDAS ORIGINALS magazine – and we are already excited, to see what we look like. For sure verrrryyy sporty.

For the moment, you (and us! and us!) will have to be pleased with the so-called (ugh!) ‘behind the scenes’-pictures. But maybe that is enough for a quick Five-against-Willy.

 

Criticizing our Materialistic World: KIDULT – Visual Dictatorship

 

 Graffiti artist KIDULT from Paris who is known for painting the stores of the big fashion labels published a 15-minute video explaining the political motives behind his work.

Among other things, the activist says the following:

“One should never underestimate the political and social power of graffiti.”

 While keeping in mind that KIDULT’s stunts are usually entertaining we have a different opinion on the subject matter. We think, that one should never overestimate the social and political power of graffiti. The type of protest and art, applied by KIDULT have been around for decades, they have become utterly mainstream, and are even being incorporated into the business world. KIDULT does point this out himself but then doesn’t do anything about it.

 Marc Jacobs demonstrated that these rather dull attempts of criticizing capitalism can be turned around quite easily. He had T-Shirts printed featuring photos of his store that had been vandalized by KIDULT, and sold those for 700 USD a piece.

 Whoever is interested in watching the apocalyptic KIDULT video regardless can do that below. But please don’t take it seriously. Change is hardly ever initiated from the outside and even less so by graffiti on shop windows.
