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.
ALEXANDER WANG is daring to touch another, more peripheral, fashion-issue after the H&M-cooperation: Interior.
He designed a ‘Bean Bag Chair’ for the Italian label Poltrona Frau and a booze-case – or rather wrapped it with black leather.
For 8.800,- dollars you can buy the luxurious bean bag, for 18.500,- dollar the box. One can only hope, that Wang used his own ball-skin for the pieces, considering the price. Everything else would be: rude.

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)
