The second edition of the London Collections: Men – the British men’s fashion week – will take place from the 7th until the 9th of January. The choice of date is a statement. An attack showing no fear.
That’s because almost at the same time the Pitti Uomo is taking place (8th – 11th of January) in Florence. Apparently there has already been a public complaint. The schedule clash will not allow attending both shows so there is no choice but to pick one of them.
London Collections: Men – Pitti Uomo?
The Fashion Telegraph lists in the article It’s raining menswear – London Collections: Men Autumn/Winter 2013 line-up announced a few logical reasons why one should opt for the second edition of London’s men’s fashion week.
The Prince of Wales hosted the opening party, the weather was glorious – and the shows were rather good too. Yes, the very first London Collections: Men fashion weeklet for chaps proved a rip-roaring success when it launched back in June… You can read the entire article in the Fashion Telegraph.
Sure, mean-while every single one of you stylers can call one, or maybe even more-so, five bomber-jackets, his own. Because the bomber-jacket trend has been in since many years (and still does not seem to have an end).
In-case you belong to the one-percent of the DANDY DIARY-readers, which do not own such a jacket, we advise you to get this one, by STAMPD LA.
Why? Because it a) does not look like the next cheap-bomber-jacket by ASOS and b) has those fucking cool 2002 Helmut Lang bondage-straps (which we know because of fourpins). Plus you c) REALLY need to have a bomber-jacket by now.
Here you can buy the jacket for about 300,- Dollars – which is more than you would spend on ASOS for a whole outfit, but less, than for a 2002 HELMUT LANG-piece. Fair enough!
Opel-Gang in Riga!

At the beginning of the year, ADIDAS announced a collaboration together with Pharrell Williams, that shouldn’t be a one-season-thing.
The cooperation between the Herzogenaurach-based sports-article producer and the US musician is going to be a fixed thing, beyond a few season, is the declaration. The first pictures – more or less a preview – have been crossing the net today.
Two classics have been dared by Pharrell: the super-star training-jacket with the iconic Adidas-stripes and the Stan Smith – both items are going to be available in red, blue and black.
The jacket will cost about 1000 Dollar, the Stan Smith 150 Dollar. From the 20th of september on, the first pieces of the collaboration will be delivered to selected sneaker-stores, concept-stores and adidas originals flagship stores.
