Reading Tip: Front-Club – How We Danced (Zeit Magazine)

Pissed-off preambule: although the ZEIT-MAGAZINE’ has the most populist and hilarious Facebook account that’s ever appeared on timeline, it never held one back from buying DIE ZEIT. Still, reading every next post, i’m close to sending the social-media editors a maxi-letter full of shit .

Actual post: Anyways. This is now about something else, really – about an article on FRONT, the, as they say, legendary Hamburg house-club. That was, if we may believe the stylist Klaus Stockhausen, the first club in Germany, where house was played (by Stockhausen himself, of course).

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the club which has existed since 1997 ZEIT MAGAZINE asked some witnesses (hohoho!) – which wouldn’t be very interesting to our little fashion blog  if eyewitnesses weren’t big names in German fashion business now. Among others, Klaus Stockhausen (the fashion editor of German INTERVIEW MAGAZINE) and Christiane Arp (head of the German VOGUE) have their say.

The highly erotic Christiane Arp remembers it as follows: 

“I just danced though the night. Sometimes i took off the high heels, although i was actually born in them. I wore sweatshirts with collars cut out so that they’d hang on the shoulders. But comparing to guys, all of us girls looked pretty old..”

Also Stockhausen, who we find slightly less erotic, remembers of fashion in FRONT:

“I still remember pioneers dancing in Junior Gaultier and Yamamoto, in shoulder-wide suits that they refused to take off. It was a time when fashion occupied the streets. People saved up for a piece from Comme des Garçons or Mugler. British magazines like Blitz or Face were read. It was all non-german, just like the club: absolutely not German.”

You can read the whole article online (in German)- and find out after reading, that Berghain already once existed in Germany. In the eighties in Hamburg.

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.
