Reading tip: From Pitti to Paris, Men are the New Women

During Rio Fashion Week in January i had an opportunity to personally meet Imran Amed, the founder of Business of Fashion. A gentleman, visionary and a master of the dance floor.

He’s occupied himself with the topic of the megatrend of men’s fashion under the title From Pitti to Paris, Men are the New Women. An interesting, currently very relevant topic, since the luxury market for men’s fashion is growing by 14 percent yearly, twice as fast as the women’s fashion market is.

Amed beleives that three factors are responsible for the boom: streetstyle blogs, color and print, as well as the revival of sharply cut suits.

“Men are the new women,” or so went the refrain of the fashion pack who have travelled from London to Florence to Milan to Paris over the last three weeks, taking in the menswear collections for Spring/Summer 2013. You can read the whole article in Business of Fashion.

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.

New at REEBOK: Bacon

We have been aware of it for a long time: ‘Food’ is the new ‘Fashion’

The sneakers-producer Reebok had similar thoughts, and released bacon on the market. Justification: ‘The CrossFit-community loves bacon.’ 

And since the CrossFit-community is an important market for Reebok, one can get bacon with his sneaker.

We ask ourselves now, when Adidas will release it’s own sausage with mustard. Since the soccer-community loves sausages with mustard. And they are an important sneaker-market. Or Nike it’s own hot dog, because of the football-community.

Well, the possibilities of this new market are endless. Beautiful, new world!

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.
