Good Read: Jessica Weiß interview by Les Mads

It’s been a year since the queen left her royal court. Jessica Weiß bid farewell at Les Mads to devote to new challenges. She took over the online-version of Interview Magazine.

Switching from a fashion blog to a magazine was perceived like a big career stepping stone by the public. Weiß quickly opted for doing her own project again, though: Journelles.

The incident makes us think of Susie Bubble. The excentric blooger worked in the online editorial of Dazed&Confused for a short time, however decided against working a renowned magazine to do pursue her own project. Her fashion blog. Anzeichen des Wandels.

Katja from LesMads spoke to Jessica Weiß about her comeback. A sympathetic move. They talk about the idea behind Journelles, the German fashion blogosphere, and the success criteria of a blog.

A very entertaining interview and therefore our recommendation for today’s good read:

LesMads: Congratulations to your new website Journelles, it turned out very well! How does it feel to be back as a fulltime-blogger, or Blogazine owner after a one-year break?

Jessica Weiß: Thanks very much! It feels great being my own boss again. Leaving LesMads feels like it’s been much longer than ‘only’ a year – so it’s great being featured now at my ‘preveious home’.

You can read the entire interview at Les Mads (in German).

Lumbersexuality – simply fat, old Hipster!

After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?

Media as The GuardianThe 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’!
